North Beach Studio Rental Photos and Description

PRIVATE suite/kitchenette/bath (Sleeps 2 ... and 3 if kids)

Come stay in our gorgeous retreat nestled into Telegraph Hill in the North Beach area of San Francisco. This cozy and chic private suite/kitchenette/bath is located on a small, quiet street just steps from the energy and beat of North Beach.


San Francisco Short-term Residential Rental Registration Number 0000559 STR.

Possession of a San Francisco Short Term Rental registration Certificate certifies that the registration certificate holder has agreed to comply with the terms of the San Francisco Short-Term Residential Rental Ordinance. This ordinance does not require an inspection of the unit by the city for potential Building, housing, Fire or other Code violations.


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.

About Ruth

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.

Why Ruth chose San Francisco

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.

What makes this studio unique

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.

Nice, well located

My husband and I stay for 4 days with our daughter, it's a nice studio, clean and beautiful!

It is really close to everything, we walk to fishermans warf, to union square and a lot of places. Ruth's recomendations was very useful, so we have delicious dinners.

perfect location, and a beautiful quiet property

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here with its quiet off street location but just a few blocks from all the restaurants and coffee shops. The suite itself was super clean, and beautifully decorated with everything you could need including a cot that we used for our son, and a kitchenette with stove, mircrovave, fridge, etc. There is no parking but we parked our vehicle a few blocks away at the North Beach lot. We will definitely stay here again!

Great suite

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little unit near COIT tower. It is clean and well stocked. It's on a small side street and is a studio suite above the garage. It's private and nicely furnished. The owner is responsive and helpful. I recommend this suite!

Small but nice!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice property! We really enjoyed it! The bed was very comfortable, the studio is small but nicely equipped! There were many restaurants nearby and we walked everywhere! The owner was very quick to answer questions and provided some nice tips. We were unable to figure out the TV so directions might be helpful.

An ideal place to stay in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded my expectations. It is extremely charming, quiet, and private, and steps away from excellent restaurants and points of interest, such as Coit Tower.

The room is very clean, and all fixtures and decorations are in great condition. The bed is comfortable. I mentioned how quiet it is, which was very surprising given the North Beach location.

The place is full of character and in an exciting, friendly neighborhood. I would easily stay here again!

This is a charming studio located on a quiet street in North Beach/Telegraph Hill. There is some street noise on trash pick up days and street cleaning days. Otherwise the street is very quiet and you will feel like you are worlds away from the bustling city.
