Centrally Located Sf Flat, Sleeps Up To 6

SAN FRANCISCO SHORT-TERM RESIDENTIAL RENTAL RESISTRATION NUMBER: STR-0000091

Possession of a San FranciscoShort-Term Rental Certificate certifies that the registration certificate holder has agreed to comply with the terms of the San Francisco Short-Term Residential Rental Ordinance (San Francisco Administrative Code Section 41A. This ordinance does not require an inspection of the unit by the City for potential Building, Housing, Fire, or other Code Violations.

This charming Russian Hill property, in an Edwardian building built in 1907, is the perfect location for your San Francisco get-away. The building is located on a quiet street in the delightful Russian Hill neighborhood that is full of old world charm, and is conveniently located near many of the wonderful sites and flavors that San Francisco has to offer:

1½ blocks to cable car (Hyde Street)

Less than 10 minute walk to historic North Beach

Less than 10 minute walk to bustling Chinatown

Less than 10 minute walk to Polk Street cafes and shops

3 minute cable car ride to Lombard St

5 minute cable car ride to Ghirardelli Square and Fisherman’s Wharf

Imagine waking up in this classic San Francisco property deciding what to do with your day. You could go to a North Beach bakery for cappuccino and a pastry, followed by a walk to Coit Tower and Washington Square. Or you could head to Chinatown for Dim Sum, go souvenir shopping on Grant Ave followed by a traditional foot massage. Maybe you want to go to a coffee shop on Polk Street followed by an afternoon of window shopping at the many boutiques on Polk and Union streets. Or maybe you’ll take the cable car to Fisherman’s Wharf for a seafood brunch followed by a ferry boat ride to Alcatraz.

About the property:

The master bedroom has a king size bed and bay window, decorated with art deco accents. The second bedroom has a queen size bed, original pocket doors that open to the living room, and is decorated with authentic California Plein-Air paintings.

The living room has a brand new, super comfortable pull-out sleeper sofa that sleeps two people. There are hardwood floors throughout the flat.

The newly renovated kitchen has beautiful original tile work from the 1920s as well as many contemporary conveniences, including a new dishwasher and microwave. I love to cook and I’ve stocked this kitchen with all the cookware, vintage dishware and cookbooks you need to make your own feasts if you so desire.

In classic San Francisco fashion, the bathroom and toilet room are separated. Both have original tile from the 1920s as well as vintage art deco mirrors.

Amenities include:

• Washer and Dryer in unit

• Complimentary coffee and tea

• Bedding and towels provided

• Shampoo, soap and blow dryer provided

• 50' HD Cable TV and high speed wireless internet

• Telephone with free domestic service

• Small outdoor yard with gas grill

• iPod docking station

Parking is available for an additional $30 per day. If you would like to reserve parking please indicate that in your request.

If you don't like the idea of walking up or down a hill you may want to consider renting a car or staying in a flatter (but not nearly as scenic or convenient!) area of town.

San Francisco is a great town for walking, but if you want to drop into a gym or attend a yoga class, there are several facilities close by.

No smoking anywhere on the property, including the outdoor backyard and the front steps.

Guests have access to the property, the shared back yard and the shared garage. I live in the property which has a separate entrance.

About Kenji Yokoo

I moved from my native country of Japan to the Russian Hill neighborhood of San Francisco over 20 years ago and I plan to stay here forever. I truly love San Francisco and Russian Hill in particular. I manage my own art business and love collecting and restoring antiques. I also love traveling, wine tasting, hiking, visiting museums and galleries, cooking, and checking out new San Francisco restaurants and coffee shops.

I am passionate about respecting and maintaining San Francisco’s old world charm. I personally restored this property, keeping as much of the original details that I could while creating a comfortable atmosphere with modern conveniences. I want guests to have an authentic San Francisco experience, and hope the space I have created will make you feel at home.

Because I have lived here for so long, I can provide guests with tips on sites and local restaurants that are off of the beaten path. I can also recommend neighborhood walks that expose guests to the historic and cultural charm that San Francisco has to offer. Since I often go to Napa and Sonoma, I have many recommendations of wineries that you may want to visit.

I am proud of my adopted city and my home and want to share them with you. I hope that you can experience all the wonders of San Francisco that I am so lucky to enjoy everyday.

impecable art deco home

  • 5 of 5

Kenji provided 6-star service from the get-go with prompt & detailed email replies. He had evidently spent much time & passion in preparing the apartment & tourist information for guests such as us. He greeted us with brewed green tea for us to enjoy while he took us through his folders of local maps, menus & details of how various gadgets work.

He had thought of everything - washing powder, toiletries, a range of teas etc. While, offering to assist in anyway further (because he just lived upstairs), our 'host' gave us the comfort of our own space.

The apartment & its furnishings were thoroughly clean, plus the bedding & manchester were of good quality. After walking those SF hills each day, we slept very well.

The apartment is conveniently located to grocers, cable car, yoga studio, eateries etc. We considered the street gradient as built-in leg toning at no extra cost!

We enjoyed the authentic art deco interior complimented with fabrics, artifacts & books of the era.

Our stay in San Francisco was enhanced by our host's attention to detail & my 11yr-old summed it up in 1 word of current-day slang ... 'yeah, Kenji was beast' ... whatever that means.
