About Robert Thorpe

I have lived in San Francisco for 40 years, all the time in this property initially as a renter, then as the owner in 2002.

Robert Thorpe purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Robert Thorpe chose San Francisco

The views are spectacular from this building. Plus this property was one of the first rebuilt after the earthquake of 1906, and is a classic 'captains' house overlooking the entire San Francisco Bay.

What makes this apartment unique

This property is the perfect blend of the classic past existing in the buzz of all the tourist activities.

Oustanding apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this apartment.... it was so spacious and comfortable... a welcome retreat after all of our adventures. The location was great... within walking distance of shops and attractions.

Our host, Robert, could not have been more helpful - we had a slight car accident with a wooden post resulting in white paint scratched right down one side...... to our delight Robert managed to buff it all off - honestly it must have took him ages but the guy is so kind and helpful .... If you stay with him you will be well looked after.

Fabulous Views and Great Location :)

  • 5 of 5

I took my sister and 2 niece's for a long weekend for her high school graduation gift. We were delighted when we arrived at the Apt. It was wonderful! Spacious so we could relax. The balcony had great views of the bay. The location is perfect! Walking distance to everything. Everything worked great in the Apt. (Internet & TV's were perfect) Fabulous water pressure in shower, and wonderful ice maker. The apt. had everything you would need.

Glassware, cookware, etc. Plenty of extra blankets, sheets & towels. We saw the parrots and humming birds on the balcony. Robert, the owner was a wonderful host. I would definitely return again someday! Thank you

Great view, location and host

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a long weekend at the beginning of a drive down the PCH and we couldn't have picked a better spot in SF. The view speaks for itself. The property is half a block from the trolley line, a block from Ghirardelli Square and two blocks to the bay... can't ask for a better location! Rob was a very friendly host and gave us a ton of excellent recommendations for places to eat and drink nearby. I just hope this place is available the next time I visit SF!

Fabulous view of the bay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay in San Franscisco. Very easy to get around the city from the centrality of the location. The balcony overlooking the bay was stunningly. We saw parrots and humming birds in the backyard while enjoying a panoramic view of the bay including Alcatraz! Thank you

It doesn't get any better

  • 5 of 5

I can't imagine a better place to stay in San Francisco. The apartment has the best location and the view is breathtaking. To top it all off, the hosts are the friendliest, most helpful people ever. Our family of 4 had a wonderful time and will stay here again when we go back to SF.
