Best location for your visit to San Francisco. Enjoy the convenience of an easy walk to Financial District, North Beach, Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, Union Square, the theater District, or just simply take the Cable Car.
This is the ideal place to have the quintessential experience of living like a local in San Francisco. Have a nice cup of coffee in the morning with the Cable Car bell sound outside your window. Explore the many famous sites around the city, then come home to a quiet evening. The use of 2 transit cards are included to make exploring the city easier.
The flat is a spacious 750 sq. ft. (70 sq. M) located on the top floor of a 4 story building, away from the street. The flat is very quiet. You will have a great night of sleep on the queen sized bed with 800 thread count sheets.
The living room is next to the bedroom, with the option of pocket doors to separate the rooms. Enjoy sitting on the comfortable couch by day and convert it into a queen sized bed by night. The living room is also furnished with a beautiful dining table and chairs, as well as a 40' flat screen.
The kitchen is stocked with cooking pots, pans and utensils, as well as basic spices.
The full bathroom has a shower over tub.
I grew up in San Francisco. Love this world class city for all it has to offer.
Mike & Amy purchased this apartment in 2003
It is centrally located. You can walk every where, or take public transit. Our world famous cable car is just right outside of the building.
Union Square, North Beach (Italian District), Chinatown, Fisherman's Wharf, Financial District and world class restaurants are all within an easy 20 minutes walk, or take the Cable Car.
This is a long overdue review, and only the second review I've ever done for HomeAway/VRBO (and we've booked many rentals though them). We stayed in the apartment in June 2016. Mike was great to work with, from start to finish, and we couldn't have stayed in a better place in the city. The apartment was clean, beds were comfortable, and it had everything we needed to make our one week stay comfortable. The great location two blocks from Chinatown allowed us to walk or hop on a cable car to go everywhere, and our two kids enjoyed that immensely. We definitely took advantage of the two free Clipper cards provided with the rental and if we return to San Francisco, we will definitely stay here again! Thanks, Mike!
All the basics needed with the extra convenience of the transit cards and the cable car and multiple buses at your front door. Clean and quiet.
The apartment was really great. Lots of space. Good internet connection. The transit passes make life so much easier in San Francisco. Also thanks to Mike, who allowed us to leave our bags a bit longer on our last day.
The condo is very spacious with all amenities. Large fridge, stove, microwave, washer and dryer in suite. Pictures and description accurately reflect the condo. building is very quiet. This is the second time we stayed at Mike and Amy's condo and we enjoyed it both times.
Really enjoyed our stay here. The location could not be beat. Being surrounded by the beautiful architecture and having the cable car right outside really helped make our trip an experience to remember. The transit passes that are provided are a wonderful bonus - we used them to get everywhere and it was relatively easy to do so.
The unit itself is nice and has all the necessities. Beds were fairly comfortable and noise level was okay most nights. The stairs to get up here are a little daunting but after a few days of climbing the hills you get used to them.
Mike was great and made sure we had everything we needed to get into the unit okay, even though we came in quite late. The pot for the coffee maker was missing and Mike replaced it the very next day.
All in all, a great place to stay.
We had a great stay! Lots of pros: roomy for the family compared to a hotel room, good location, loved having a kitchen, washer and dryer. The cable car ride in to town was convenient and easy to catch (although often the lines to catch it home were long). We did use the transportation cards that were included, and we also recommend the Citypass (includes several key SF attractions and transportation). There weren't many restaurants nearby. We rented a car, and fyi, the recommended parking lot is a very steep 5 block walk and $25-30 per night. No street noise, but one of the neighboring units was loud some nights. The pullout bed was more comfortable than most and large (I think a king size).The only cons we noticed were a low shower head (we are tall, but it was noticeably short to our 5'3" daughter), no dishwasher, and dirty blinds and couch cushions. There is no a/c, but we found it wasn't needed during our stay.
We enjoyed the coffee shop across the street from the Cable Car Museum and a restaurant named The Italian Homemade Co. in North Beach (20 min walk).
