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.

Look no further! A beautiful place to stay while visiting SF!

  • 5 of 5

The flat was amazing. It was quiet, clean, comfortable and absolutely beautiful. The location was even better! This location is perfect walking distance to all the attractions (Wharf, Alcatraz tours, China Town, etc). There are hills, but the workout made it easier to splurge on all the wonderful food/beverage options in the area.

I agree with other posts - don't rent a car. Uber and Lyft were our primary mode of transportation. Another option for those that might want to take day trip and only have a car for the day is "Get Around." This option was much less expensive than your standard car rental companies.

The flat was well stocked with the basic kitchen items (spices, cooking oil, tin foil, plastic bags, etc). We did eat a few meals here, so it was a nice bonus to have these items on hand.

I would definitely recommend this flat to anyone visiting the area!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our needs. We are a family of 5 (3 teenagers) who spent 4 nights here for fall break. The second bathroom and pull out couch made this place hard to beat! If you want to stay in the heart of the city, within walking distance to almost everything...this should be your first choice!

Fantastic flat in a perfect location.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the flat very much. The North Beach location was perfect for us and we loved that we could walk to many restaurants, attractions, and sites.

The flat has everything you need and is clean and well laid out. The door between the front and back of the flat meant that the nights were quiet with little street noise.

The flat is good for a quiet family but I admit to being a bit panicked about all of the warnings and concerns for leaving water marks and making too much noise.

The cleanup at the end took longer than anticipated but all was worthwhile for the comfort and convenience of the flat.

The owner responded quickly to questions and concerns.

There is no outdoor area for sitting and enjoying the lovely days we had in San Fran so we were out most of the time.

Perfect North Beach Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly located just a couple blocks off of Washington Square and below Coit Tower - this lovely apartment was like staying in the home of a friend. It was impeccably furnished and very thoughtfully appointed...every detail had been carefully thought out. It was a very comfortable layout for my husband, I and two teenagers, plenty of space for all of us and areas for us to have a bit of separation if needed. The neighborhood is top notch, perfectly situated near the heart of North Beach with easy access to pretty much everywhere in the city. Communication with the owners was fantastic - very proactive and communicative, responsive and there to greet us upon arrival. One of the best VRBO's I've stayed in - loved it!

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.
