About Sonia

I have been advertising on VRBO for 3 years and have had wonderful experience receiving guests from all over the world. My other VRBO rental, 319405, has had great reviews and many have enjoyed their stay there. I now have this property, which I think is in a great location and is wonderfully charming. I hope many guests visit San Francisco at this wonderful location and enjoy the many San Francisco culture that are within walking distance. I really enjoy providing my guests with a great place to stay while they get a taste of my favorite city in the world!

Why Sonia chose San Francisco

This property is part of a 5 unit Victorian building. It is very charming and the location is great for people touring San Francisco or needing place to stay while working or being treated at UCSF or Kaiser. The bathroom and kitchen have been remodeled to accomodate the discerning travelers. Despite its proximity to all the great restaurants on Fillmore and Presidio Heights, this location is very quiet with ample parking on the street, a unique situation for San Francisco.

What makes this apartment unique

This building is 3 blocks to UCSF and Kaiser, and therefore, would be more than convenient for students and professionals needing residence while working at the hospital. For those professionals, it is also beneficial in that it is close to all the life amenities that San Francisco has to offer including the shops and restaurants on Fillmore street, Japan town, Golden Gate Park and Golden Gate Bridge. It is also a charming Victorian, traditional style of San Francisco without the difficulty of living in one. The location cannot be beat but at the same time, it is very quiet and residential.

Close to so many things

  • 5 of 5

5 of us ladies enjoyed staying at this older apartment that has been well kept. It was in a nice area, and we walked almost everywhere. When we didn't walk, the bus stops are just a block or so away. Sonia is great to work with...always responds quickly if you have any questions. All the rooms are very usable and the kitchen had everything we needed to make a meal. I live in the country where it's really quiet, so it took me a night to get use to the street noise, but that is the only problem I had (using a fan with it's noise helped a lot). A couple of restaurants we liked were Pizzeria Delfina for dinner (where we got hooked on Affogato) and we liked Sweet Maple for breakfast, both just a short walk away. Fillmore street is a fun place to walk around. Speaking of Affogato...if you like coffee...go to the Blue Bottle (we went to the one in the Ferry Building) and try an Affogato...oh my gosh...soooo good!!! Actually brought tears to one of my friends eyes...lol.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment for 5 months while I worked at UCSF and the place was perfect! It was a great location, everything was walking distance or a short cab ride. Sonia was also very accommodating as well if we needed anything at all! It was an amazing place and would recommend it to anyone!

Great long term rental!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for 4 teenage dancers who attended the Alonzo King Lines Ballet training program. It was so perfect for them, since it was fully furnished and in a great, safe neighborhood! They loved it there!

Great apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was great! Comfortable beds and plenty of room for my wife, me and our two teenage sons. The kitchen/eating area was spacious and bright. There is residential permit parking in front of the house. But even better, there is street parking on Bush (two blocks west) , which doesn't even require a residential permit. So we parked the car there and left it for five days for free - you just have to make sure you move it on 'street cleaning day' (the signs are VERY clear).

The location can't be beat. You can get to just about every city neighborhood within 15-20 minutes by bus. It is a 2 minute walk to the 38 bus to Union Square (the bus comes every 5 minutes). It is a 15-minute walk to the Fillmore District and Pacific Heights (with its stunning views of the Bay). The neighborhood is very well kept and quiet, away from the tourist crowds.

The only things missing are a microwave and a DVD player. And because the bedrooms are in the front of the apartment, you hear the street noise. But these are very minor issues compared to the positives listed above. We would definitely stay here again!

A great apartment in a very good location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment with our little daughter for 3 months when we just moved to San Francisco and we absolutely loved it. The apartment is a good size, with two good bedrooms, a good sized kitchen, bathroom and a nice living room. (The kitchen and living room is open plan with a kitchen island in the middle). There is plenty of space to stay for at least 4 people if you want to. The furniture is nice and the apartment is also VERY well equipped with everything you need for your stay. We did lots of cooking at home and the kitchen is very well equipped with all pans, utensils etc that you need.

In terms of location it is located at about 10 minutes walk from Fillmore and it is just in between two very convenient bus lines, the no 1 and no 2 which both takes you downtown. In terms of groceries you have Trader Joe's which is about 3 blocks away.

The apartment felt very safe and the neighbourhood is safe and quiet. Although some of the other reviews have complained about noise we were not bothered by this. The host, Sonia is really nice and helpful and very accommodating and we always got the help we needed with our requests.

We can recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a short or long-term rental in San Francisco, be it for vacation or business. This apartment really felt like home.
