Overview

About the property

- 2 BR 1.5 BA Victorian Beauty

Watch The Fine Living channel Where Our Furnished Flats Were Picked To Represent San Francisco On The series 'Around the World In 80 Homes'.

This flat is a true find. A newly restored Victorian flat that sits on the beautiful slopes of San Francisco's Telegraph Hill in the North Beach District. The flat is 1200 square feet and has two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed and the quest bedroom has two twin-sized beds. The flat has an eat-in gourmet kitchen that is fully equipped. There are one and a half baths. The full bath is a grand bath modeled after the elegant Victorian style of the 19th century. It has a jacuzzi, a chandelier, custom cherry cabinets, solid cherry archway framing the jacuzzi, hand carved cherry corbels, a marble counter and marble floor. You will feel like royalty bathing in this bathroom! The half bath also includes a laundry facility. Included in this unit is an office with high-speed wireless Internet access.

The Flat: The living room is in a theater room style, where it has a high definition flat screen TV with Blu-Ray Disc player. There is a high end Victorian style kitchen which features new Viking appliances. The bedrooms are well appointed with new comfortable linens, mattresses, and pillows. Off of the master bedroom is a small private patio that allows in a beautiful breeze. The flat itself is on the first level of the building and has a private entrance. It is very convenient to access. We have lived in this flat in order to ensure the highest quality. We found this flat to be the coziest and the best for a family with kids. We miss living in our little gem of a flat. It is very conducive to good living and good memories.

The Neighborhood: You are within walking distance of most major attractions, such as, the restaurant district, North beach commercial district, Chinatown, Union Square, Pier 39, Fisherman’s Wharf, Aquatic Park, Ghirardelli Square, The Curvy Street, Downtown, Coit Tower, Moscone Center, cable cars, cable car museum, Musee Mecanique, North Beach Museum, Modern Art Museum, Yerba Buena Gardens, Club Fugazi/Beach Blanket Babylon, Theatre District, antique trollies, Washington Square Park, Joe DiMaggio Park, and much much more. If you like to walk, then you are in the right place. If you don’t, then there are plenty of options. You can go to any nearby intersection and hail a cab. They pass every few minutes. MUNI, the local bus, stops nearby. There are also cable cars, trollies, and even a subway within blocks of where ever you might be in the neighborhood.

Place was not as nice advertised.

  • 1 of 5

The place had a musty smell that I could not get rid of. The outside terrace area was really a small backyard with nowhere to sit and was used to store trash cans. The list of 10-15 items to do upon checkout was ridiculous. If I wanted to do my own housework I would have stayed home.

Owner's Response: Hmm, interesting. One star?...My condo has never been musty nor will it ever smell musty. The unit was recently remodeled, maybe they have confused the new smell with "musty". Although we do show a photo of the backyard and we allow access, it is not advertised as being a private part of the unit or an area to hang out in. The checkout list is very common in the furnished rental business. I disclose in our rental contract that tenants must "tidy up" on departure. Most of the items on my list are reminders, such as, turning off the lights, turning off the stove, turning off the furnace, locking the door, closing the windows, leaving the key etc. The cleaning items are putting the used towels in the wash (not drying), washing the used dishes and taking out the trash. We do not expect the whole process to take more than 15 minutes. My very professional cleaning lady takes 4 hours to clean the flat. Having the towels washed when she arrives helps expedite this turnover process. Please read the other reviews. If you do then I'm pretty sure you'll agree with the old Lincoln adage, "you can't please all of the people all of the time".

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect spot from which to explore San Francisco. A 10-15 minute walk would find us in Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown or the Embarcadero. Great restaurants could be found within a couple of blocks. The flat was so nice to return to after a day of sight seeing. The area is quiet and safe and the flat has everything you would need to be comfortable. The pictures are beautiful but it's even better in person! We enjoyed using the well equipped kitchen for breakfast and even had dinner in one night, followed by watching a movie from the selection of DVD's in the living room. We would definitely stay here again should we return to San Francisco.

Car: not necessary

The neighborhood is European in flavor with its hidden stairways and allies. Almost every street gives you a different and spectacular angle of San Francisco's beautiful bay. This neighborhood is so centralized that you do not even need a car. Nearly everything is within a short or moderate walk. Try walking to most of San Francisco's greatest attractions; Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, Chinatown, The Crooked Street, The Financial District, Coit Tower, The Embarcadero, The Filbert Steps, The Moscone Center, The Saint Francis Yacht Club, The Restaurant District, The Theater District, Union Square shopping, The Marina, Fort Mason, Fort Point, Beaches, The Embarcadero, cable cars, trolleys and much, much more.

Other Activities: The whole city is your playground.
