It is a part of a very small “compound” which includes a courtyard and the house where we live full-time. The shared courtyard is filled with lush, tropical plants. It is safe and protected.
Once you leave the compound you can walk one block up the hill to Coit Tower for fantastic views of downtown, Golden Gate Bridge, Bay Bridge, and Alcatraz. Just one block in the other direction are some of the city’s best and most famous restaurants, cafes, and shopping. If you meander a few blocks to the right you will reach Fisherman’s Wharf -- one of San Francisco’s most visited tourist areas. Just blocks in the other direction lies Chinatown and downtown. Whether you are visiting for work or play, you will be central to many activities.
Inside the private suite/kitchenette/bath is a queen-sized bed, a folding single bed, and a pack ‘n play for little ones. It has a small well-stocked kitchenette, microwave, a full bath/shower, TV with cable, and WiFi. A washer and dryer are available to use. Fresh sheets, blankets, and towels are all provided.
Secure parking can be found in a number of nearby garages located within three blocks of the studio.
We accept payments through VRBO. Other forms of payment negotiable. Please contact us to discuss options.

We have lived in San Francisco for over twenty years. As East Coasters we were originally drawn to the city for its vibrancy, artistic nature, and moderate climate. Since moving here we have lived in many parts of the city and have found each area to be unique and special in its own right. However, we especially love North Beach for it’s history, central location, and eclectic vibe.
We work in the fields of health/wellness and are committed to constantly expanding our view of the world. One way we feel we can do this is to open our studio to people visiting from other places.
We have two small friendly dogs (one of whom does bark when she's leaving for a walk -- she never barks otherwise). We are mostly on the go, but also enjoy our quiet family time.
We purchased our home because it is where we wanted to live. When we found this property we knew right away that it would be an attractive rental for travelers form all parts of the world.
The thing we enjoy about this property – besides its great charm -- is the central location to many interesting activities. In the mornings we like to walk down to Hole in the Wall coffee for local gossip and delicious "pour overs". Then we hike one block up to Coit Tower and watch the ships come in.
On Saturdays we love to walk down the Filbert Steps to the Farmer’s Market at the Ferry Building. Where you can find some of the best local organic foods available. It’s also great for people watching.
Many evenings we walk down Grant Ave to local restaurants – there is a fantastic range from super-cheap to high-end. The boutiques on Grant Ave offer unique gifts and the clothing stores are excellent for men, women, and children. Our favorite makes exceptional custom shoes and coats.
Another daily activity is taking our small dog to Washington Square Park just two blocks down the hill. At the park we watch groups of folks doing tai chi, dance, and martial arts. Sometimes there is a saxophone player making the most incredible music.
In addition to the many activities within steps of our home, we find ourselves leaving the car at home while we walk or take short bus rides to downtown, Chinatown, and the Marina.
The moment you walk into the courtyard you're immediately at peace. Very quiet and clean! It's tucked away down an alley so not a lot of cars are passing through. Perfect location to a few great restaurants and walking distance to a lot of other districts if you wanted to explore. The room was great and simple enough for two! I would definitely return.
We had a wonderful overnight stay in this delightful studio in North Beach. Lovely setting! Ruth was very friendly and responsive in answering my questions and provided well organized information for entry, parking and tid-bits about the neighborhood. I selected this studio for its close proximity to our planned activities and was not disappointed. We had a delicious dinner at the Stinking Rose, took in a show at Beach Blanket Babylon, then wondered the neighborhood shops and bars. All within walking distance of the studio. It was a perfect time! Private, adequate space and amenities. The only improvement i would've appreciated is to have more lighting in the studio in both the bathroom and living space - otherwise a perfect place. We will return for a longer stay soon.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay. For us, we wanted to spend our money on experiencing SF, not on fancy accommodations, this property met that need. Great location! Great neighborhood. Highly recommend! Felt like a local coming and going from our "house." Room was just as described. Very cute courtyard. Plenty of privacy. Would stay there again. My only complaint, we were only given 3 bath towels for 6 days/5 nights....that was annoying (but I suspect I could have emailed the owner and resolved the issue) and the coffee machine needs to be replaced.
Ruth's studio was the best, clean & well maintained. It is in a great quiet location in a very good neighbourhood. We only had one request that we leave our luggage after check out to which Ruth responded straight away to the afirmative. It was much appreciated. Highly recommended.
Thanks Ruth for the wonderful stay in San Francisco! Your apartment was everything we expected. Very quaint and peaceful and the location was perfect walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf/Pier 39. Your apartment made our trip to San Fran perfect!!
What a great experience. I stayed at Ruth's apartment for 2 nights on a business trip when I found all the hotels booked. The location was terrific - in the heart of North Beach yet on a quiet side street just far enough away from Columbus Avenue. Walk to Market Street is 20 minutes, financial district much less. One warning: if you stay on a Monday night as I did, you'll be woken early by garbage trucks but hey - that's life in the city. Otherwise, the bed was comfortable, there's a huge fan to keep the apartment cool, and everything (TV, shower) worked well. Would definitely stay again.
Being in the heart of North Beach we are walking distance to many activities including: restaurants (Mama's, Original Joe's, Park Tavern, Tony's Pizza, Don Pistos, The Square and more), as well as bakeries, bars, City Lights Book Store, bike rental outlets, live music venues, parks, playgrounds, tennis and basketball courts, trolley cars, Pier 39, the Filbert Steps etc.
