Overview

About the property

Centrally Located Sf Flat, Sleeps Up To 6

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

20 minute walk or 15 minute bus/cable car ride to Union Square

20 minute walk or 10 minute bus ride to Financial District

Easy access to route 101 and route 280

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.

Amazing Home, Host a Superstar

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came up for her 40th birthday. We have a wonderful time. Kenji met with us and we had tea with him. He was an amazing host and was an indispensable source of information for the area. He dialed us into the right restaurants and was very friendly and the property itself is absolutely amazing. I would highly recommend this property and I will be visiting it again most definitely in the future.

I even forgot some of my cycling gear and he Will be mailing it back to me and was very kind and did not complain one bit. This guy is truly a gentleman.

Beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and very well maintained apartment in a lovely part of San Francisco. I would rather stay there than in a 5 star hote. It is as appears in the photos and better. We only wish we could have stayed longer or again. Very good beds.

Loved our stay here!

  • 5 of 5

I have never had such a positive experience with a VRBO! Kenji, the owner of the flat, was very thoughtful and helpful during our stay. As you can read in other reviews you are greeted with a tea service, given a tour of the flat, shown where books are with restaurant menus, brochures of things to do, places to go etc. It is all true. The flat was immaculate and unlike other places we have stayed there are spices in the kitchen etc, more than 1/4 cup of dish soap, additional towels if needed, etc. You truly feel as though you are staying in someone's home. The location is great, and although it is on a 'hill' there is always Uber to drive you back up. HIghly recommend!

Incredible experience

  • 5 of 5

Our host, Kenji, was spectacular. He offered a full orientation to his beautiful home, and to the San Francisco experience. This location was ideal for us with walking access to many phenomenal restaurants and coffee shops. Also, walkable access for North Beach and Chinatown.

We will try to stay here again!
