Russian Hill Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Spacious flat in Russian Hill neighborhood filled with charm.

San Francsico business registration number 1021849

This spacious, light-filled six-room corner flat sits on a hill overlooking the San Francisco Bay with views of Alcatraz, Angel Island, and Marin, with visual proximity to Telegraph Hill’s Coit Tower on one side and legendary Macondary Lane on the other. Clean and well appointed, this apartment sleeps four, with a brand new queen bed in the main bedroom and a new, very comfortable, high quality queen sofa bed in the parlor/den. The living room has an engaging view and a working fireplace where you can enjoy restful evenings watching sailboats and fog stream in at sunset. Hardwood floors with detailed woodwork, historic redwood paneling, and original pocket doors (which open between the den and the living room) add to the authentic San Francisco living experience. A 32” flat screen television with DVD and DVR player, serving both the living room and the den, features a wide range of satellite channels, including HBO. There’s an iMac with Internet and a printer in the den to print out your boarding passes, tickets to events, or directions to your destination. Enjoy your meals in the formal dining room or in the large, sunny kitchen with all of the amenities: refrigerator, stove, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, and a 28” flat screen television. A full range of cookbooks and cooking utensils allows you to prepare your own meals from abundant farmer’s markets and specialty shops found in the surrounding neighborhoods. In classic San Francisco style, the bath is split with a tub/shower and sink in the main room and the toilet in the WC (Water Closet). A laundry room sits off of the kitchen with full size washer and dryer for your laundry needs. This is a second story flat with 34 stairs, which places you above the fray.

The location couldn’t be more ideal — nestled on the edge of Russian Hill with all of it’s small parks, hilltop views, charming stairways — only 2 blocks from Washington Square Park, the heart of literary North Beach. Our prime neighborhood has a wealth of cafes, lively bars, highly rated restaurants, boutiques, and the renowned City Lights Book Store. Iconic San Francisco sites such as bustling Chinatown and Fisherman’s Wharf are in close proximity. Two distinctive landmarks, the crooked street on Lombard and the depression era murals on Coit Tower, are within walking distance. Diverse neighborhoods and shopping districts surround Russian Hill on all sides and are within leisurely strolls, convenient bus and cable cars rides. There is the Embarcadero with its renovated Ferry Building, the newly-opened, interactive science and art museum the Exploratorium, and bay side promenades; vibrant downtown with its art museums, movie theaters, and mega shops surrounding Union Square; Hyde Street with its destination ice cream parlor, and Union Street with its unique shops and side walk cafes linking you to the natural landscape of the Presidio on the west and to the Bay toward the east. You’re right on public transportation—step out the door and catch the bus to anywhere you want to go, or jump on the cable car at the corner one block away. You can even catch the bus on the corner to AT&T Park, home of our World Champion San Francisco Giants! Come check out a game.

This classic San Francisco Edwardian built in 1916, has been family occupied for 30 years. We look forward to sharing one of our flats with San Francisco loving visitors and for people on business. Our visually distinctive building has been seen in many major motion pictures and advertisements, including Contagion, Bullitt with Steve McQueen, Amy Tan’s The Joy Luck Club, and was used as a location set for Ron Howard’s Ed TV!

Couldn't be any better.

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous rental. From start to finish the rental process was a breeze and Sharry and family are very helpful. The welcome treats were over and beyond and really made us feel like we were at home. We were a family of three and the pull out sofa was a perfect spot for our teenage daughter. We all loved the décor of the flat and the view can not be beat. The location is awesome. Perfectly located and once acclimated the buses are very easy to navigate right outside the front door. Whether you are looking for a few days or a month in a furnished flat this should be your first stop. I know it will be ours when we return to the area. Thank you again!

Unforgettable stay in Russian Hill, SF

  • 5 of 5

I went to SF for holidays with my wife and two kids 8&9 years old. The apartment have an excellent location. We found a warm welcome amenities, chocolates, milk, bread, fruit and many others, it was a real welcome home!! The furniture and overall decoration exceeded our expectations. We felt really comfy specially with that corner where you can seat and enjoy the city view. You are close to good restaurants and major attractions.

The opportunity for our kids to visit the Exploratorium was a gift from Liz and not only the kids but us also had a great time. This detail make our stay more special. Thank you very, very much to Sharry and her team to make our stay unforgettable.

Charming and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I brought our two kids (ages 3 & 10 months) up to the city for a long weekend. Sharry was a wonderful host- she was very clear and communicative during booking, and let us know more information about the flat so that we would know what to expect. The flat does have a steep open staircase, but Sharry made sure we knew that and were comfortable with it before our arrival (the kids ended up fine with everything). The flat is amazing- it is huge, and was very nicely decorated. It was also stocked with many thoughtful details such as toiletries, a bowl of snacks and fruit on the table (including a delicious loaf of Boudin sourdough!). The information book that was provided had a lot of great suggestions of things to see, eat and do nearby. (Take them seriously when they suggest Tomasso's pizza in North Beach- no joke!) The beds are comfortable and the flat has so much wonderful history and character. It was perfectly located near North Beach and Fisherman's Wharf, a few blocks from both the Powell & Hyde and Powell & Mason cable car lines, and near a bus line so transportation was easy. Sharry was even kind enough to provide us with parking information and tips so we could find a good place to store our car for the weekend. We had an absolutely wonderful time and can't wait to come back up to stay again!

Excellent stay in a beautiful flat, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. Sharry and David were friendly and helpful hosts. They made us feel very welcome. The location was great for exploring San Francisco. It felt safe walking around, and there are supermarkets and restaurants nearby. The flat is lovely. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen and bathroom very good. The flat was extremely clean. We appreciated all the books about San Francisco in the flat. We would definitely recommend this vrbo.

Beautiful flat!

  • 5 of 5

This VRBO was everything we could have wanted for our stay in San Francisco. The flat was beautifully appointed, comfortable, perfectly located with wonderful views. The Russian Hill neighborhood was lovely; walking distance from the Embarcadero, good restaurants, and easy access to public transportation. Sharry could not have been more helpful and welcoming.

The only thing to keep in mind is that the flat is a second floor walk-up, and is located atop a steep hill, so someone who is not used to climbing may have difficulty.

Charming and comfortable 2nd floor flat close to North Beach

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few days here in March with our daughter on spring break, and we had a wonderful time. The apartment has a spacious living room with a fantastic view looking north to the bay. The bedroom was very comfortable, and our daughter slept on a sleeper sofa in the study. The kitchen was well equipped with all the essentials, and we appreciated the coffee, milk and fresh fruit (plus a nice bottle of California wine). The location is perfect for exploring North Beach, and it was easy to get to other parts of the city by bus (although we did also use Uber a few times). Visitors should know that there is a long flight of stairs to reach the apartment, and there is street noise until traffic dies down late at night. I used ear plugs and it wasn't a problem. Liz and Wade were great hosts, and we would be happy to stay there again during our next visit to San Francisco.
