About the property

2 Bedroom newly refinished walkup on the Parrot's Vallejo Steps!

The property is a recently renovated 2 bedroom flat in Telegraph Hill/North Beach area. It's located on a quiet cul-de-sac on top of the Vallejo Steps and is just 1.5 blocks away from the heart of North Beach where all the wonderful cafes and restaurants are located. It's a 15-minute walk to downtown financial district and a 10-minute walk to Coit Tower. It's a 10-minute bus ride or a 20-minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf, and the same to Union Square. Chinatown is just 3 blocks away. The location could not be better whether you are working in the FiDi or wanting a longer term tourist type stay.

The cul-de-sac and Vallejo steps in front of our building mean that the apt is peaceful and has a great view of downtown SF Financial District and the Bay Bridge. It is a common route for visitors walking the city. There is also a wonderful and well-maintained garden on the Vallejo Steps. The famous Telegraph Hill parrots frequently visit the property.

The Living room has a new sofa that can comfortably accommodate 2 people. This room can also be converted into a full bedroom if your long terms stay party has more than 2 people. We frequently host grad students looking for close proximity to their school and are happy to accommodate their particular needs.

Both bedrooms have queen beds and USB charging ports in the lamps. There is ample closet space.

The bath has just been converted to a glass shower enclosure with both rain and handheld showerheads and a new sink cabinet installed.

The kitchen is fully equipped and includes a second TV.

All bedding and towels provided for every person / bed and then some.

The apartment has a high-end LG washer and dryer just outside the back door on the porch.

We also have a separate secure storage area if you have extra luggage and or sports equipment that you need to bring with you.

Well behaved dogs accepted at our discretion. Please inquire.

Our downstairs neighbor is known as the "Mayor" of the Vallejo Steps. He and his dog, Abby, will be happy to answer any questions you may have about pretty much anything SF related and is always available to share a glass of wine on the steps.

About Michelle Huang

I am from Taiwan and have lived in SF for 15 years. This is my first time owning property and though its a lot of work, i am very proud to be able to rent it to good people.

Michelle Huang purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Michelle Huang chose North Beach

You cannot beat the location. If you are in SF for a short or long stay, you will be perfectly positioned for most of what's great about our amazing city. While our flat is not luxurious, its very cute, bright and clean and will suit your needs from relaxing to entertaining a few guests, etc. its equipped with brand new appliances, top of the line LG fridge and washer/dryer.

We do not live in this property, it is a full-time rental.

What makes this apartment unique

Quiet dead end street, Telegraph Hill Parrots, our downstairs neighbor (the 'Mayor) and his dog are a fountain of local kindness and knowledge. He can always be found puttering around out front.

We hate most hotels and SFO hotels available seemed to be right in Fisherman's wharf (way to touristy) or in the business district (too busy). This location was perfect. Close enough to walk to everything, quiet and authentic. The neighborhood has many good restaurants, cafes and shops. I could not imagine a better location to discover the city.

Tommy was very easy to deal with, responsive and helpful. The apt itself had everything needed for our family of 4 adults (good size, comfortable beds, nice kitchen, new laundry facilities, small outside area (with frequent visits from the neighborhood flock of parrots), TV & wifi). Pictures and description are accurate.

Would definitely rent it again!

Nice apartment in quite area near good restaurants

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a friend of mine for an entire week while attending a scientific conference. The apartment is quite nice and comfortable, it's located in a very quiet and residential area, although just around the corner from lots of good restaurants, cafes, and bars on North Beach. The owner, Tommy, is a great guy and very responsive. For instance, he came right away when we had troubles with the security code the first day (we had simply forgotten to press *), and took care of an electrical issue very promptly. This is a great and affordable place for families or small groups of friends. One can have about 6 people sleeping very comfortably if you use the sofa-bed in the living room. I will certainly consider this apartment in the future when I'm back in SF.

Owner's Response: We have had such a great experience with our guests and this occasion was no different. Julio and his colleague stayed for a week while attending a scientific conference in SF and were a pleasure to host. absolute gentlemen and totally understanding of our new owner issues. plus they have fascinating careers (oceanography) and though its hard to know how much to involve yourself in the lives of your guests, i wish i'd had more time to get to know these guys.

Top of the Steps!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a family Thanksgiving get together. It was outstanding. First, you can't beat the location. The top of the Vallejo Steps is about as quintessential San Francisco as you can get. Fabulous views. The access to North Beach restaurants and night life was perfect. And surprisingly, no problem with parking. The property itself is really exceptional. A lot of space, tastefully furnished. The best part for us was the cozy and still spacious kitchen. We cooked and enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner in the kitchen, really couldn't have been any better. Tommy (the proprietor) was available but unobtrusive. We loved this place, and have no complaints. If your thinking about renting it, please don't plan on Thanksgiving. We want to make staying there an annual event.

Owner's Response: Susan and Michael: Thanks for staying! we were very unsure how it would work for a thanksgiving dinner; we hadn't even had the chance to dine with more than ourselves before you showed up and i'm glad it worked out. We've since made little changes, lights on dimmers in the kitchen, better heating, 2nd TV and a futon bed for the "office", etc. always trying to improve! best, tommy and michelle
