North Beach Gem ............ Before the Fall!

  • 4 of 5

We love North Beach and this studio is perfectly located. The decor is eclectic with an array of local art, including a stunning steel railing on the raised kitchen seating area which captures in silhouette the local art scene. Regrettably, I suffered a bad fall down the four steps leading from the kitchen to the bed area. The refrigerator is positioned very close to the steps, which are unguarded. The ice maker was broken during our stay, which required standing with my back to the steps and opening the left hand feeezer door toward me in order to reach the ice tray. I inadvertently stepped back one step too many and fell backwards odd the steps onto the hardwood floor. I didn't appear to be seriously hurt at the time but am seeing doctors for repercussions from the fall. Our host said she'd ordered a new refrigerator. There needs to be a railing or similar guard, because even if the ice maker allowed access to ice on the freezer door, the danger remains. So, before the fall, the stay was delightful. Hopefully, the host will correct this dangerous condition so future guests can enjoy their stay in safety. K

Great apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable and very well equipped apartment in a great location. A ten minute walk in any direction will take you somewhere interesting - the Water front, Coit Tower, Chinatown. The area is quiet but you are only steps away from many fine restaurants. Sherry the owner is delightful and full of information. It was my first visit to San Francisco but I am sure it won't be my last.

Great apartment, Great location, Great city!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this apartment with my daughter for her 21st birthday, mother/daughter spring break. It was the perfect size for the two of us, with just enough space for separation and a large bathroom. Great decor, apartment is bigger and looks even nicer in person than through pictures. We felt at home immediately. The apartment had everything we needed for our stay. It was also very quiet and safe in a nice residential neighborhood. Location is perfect; yes you are on a hill, but outside of the wharf area, I don't know who wouldn't be! There is easy access to where ever you want to go in this fabulous city. Don't bring a car-I can't fathom negotiating street parking! If you are flying in, we found airfare much cheaper flying into Oakland rather than San Fran directly. It was just a short train ride under the bay to the Embarcadero station and then a 5 minute taxi ride to the apartment. This was a much cheaper route than shuttle or taxi rides from the airport (less than $30 for two people).. We also bought a 3 day MUNI pass and used this to take a bus for distance touring like Haight/Ashbury and Union Square. The bus stop is only a couple blocks(take the steps down Kearny to Columbus and there you are. It is steep walking in parts, but we averaged 5-6 miles a day no problem. From Sherry's apartment you can easily walk to the Embarcadero or wharf areas. Coit Tower is only 2 and 1/2 blocks up the street. There is a corner grocery close by that carried everything we needed for basic breakfast/snack/beverage items. We did not cook at all-why would you when Chinatown and Little Italy are right around the corner?! Mo's is recommended for a tasty burger option. Our hands down favorite was Viva Italian Restaurant on the corner of Columbus and Grant. Just a two block walk for great food choices, great prices and great service. We ate there twice and wish we had time for more! There is so much to do - we would love to return and would certainly stay in this great apartment again. It is very reassuring to know the owner is right there to greet you and can help you if needed. Thanks so much Sherry!!

Amazing rental in an equally amazing location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the best time staying at this rental in North Beach. This was our first trip to San Francisco and this rental provided us with the opportunity to walk to everything we wanted to explore and easy access to public transportation when we were too tired to walk. We live on the East Coast and communicating with Sherry was easy. She answered all my questions about the area quickly and honestly. The apartment was adorable and the perfect size for two. It was very clean and the kitchen was well-stocked. The bathroom was large was equipped with every thing we needed. The bed was complaints. Sherry recommended several restaurants, and also made recommendations as to her least favorite places to visit, which we appreciated. Basically, we loved everything about this rental and were so happy to have made such a good choice. If we make it back to SF, I'd only look for another property if this one was not available.

Comfortable stay in a great neighbourhood

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in this cute, arty studio. It is in a fabulous neighbourhood as long as you can handle the steep walk up the hill. It's a block or two from great restaurants, cafes, and pizzerias, but is still very much in a residential area. Sherry was very helpful & provided excellent food recommendations. It's a ground floor apartment, and provides an authentic representation of living in San Francisco. Buses are a couple of blocks away, but easy to use. We walked a lot throughout North Beach and over to Fisherman's Wharf, as well as downtown, and took public transit, and used Lyft to get around beyond that.

Amazing Rental in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the best time staying at this rental in North Beach! My husband and I recently got back from a short stay in San Francisco to celebrate our anniversary and Sherry's rental was just PERFECT. It was a close walk to practically everything we wanted to see and the rental itself was just adorable. The pictures don't even do this place justice. It was bright, beautifully decorated and right in the middle of the action while somehow also managing to feel like you were getting away from the all the noise while tucked away on your own little hill. We had everything we could possibly need and the place was so clean. Sherry was a fantastic host. She had great communication with us and gave us a tour when we arrived and pointed out all the restaurants and places we would want to go in the area. I would love to visit again and can't wait until we can make it back to San Francisco.
