About Lee Morgan
I am a Canadian-trained osteopath practicing manual therapy in San Francisco. I specialize in working with infants and children. I travel to India every year to work with disabled children and am currently focusing on raising money to build the first school for disabled children in the town of Tiruvanamalai, South India. I love to travel, new adventures, nature, a good cappuccino, and dancing Argentine tango.
Lee Morgan purchased this Condo in 1996
Why Lee Morgan chose Fisherman's Wharf
The location is fantastic. You are in the heart of the city, but you feel like you are in nature. You get to watch the boats and weather across the San Francisco Bay, and stay cosy in front of a warm fire.
What makes this Condo unique
The view takes my breath away every morning and I have been living here for 15 years. I have beautiful antiques and the place is peaceful, a lovely retreat in the heart of San Francisco.

Very happy with our stay in Lee’s beautiful apartment, which is more spacious than the photos show and with spectacular views. Spotlessly clean, comfortable and well appointed with a homely feel that you only get with a place that is lived in rather than just a holiday let. We also appreciated the ‘pantry essentials’ (coffee, tea, condiments etc) and amazing array of kitchen implements that made it easy to cook meals. Maybe some instructions for the microwave would have made things easier (an early model so its manual not accessible online) but enjoyed the challenge! May be worth mentioning accessibility for those not familiar with San Francisco. The walk from Fisherman’s Wharf (where Trader Joe’s and Safeway are located) is quite steep, although moderate by SF standards. Of course the hills are the price you pay for the views, but the easiest walking route we found to and from the condo was via Grant Street to Washington Square and Columbus where there are many cafe’s and restaurants and several buses that travel from the city centre to the Wharf area. Of course Uber is readily available so the walk is optional! The apartment itself is on the ground level of the block reached by only a few steps. Heartily recommend this rental, and many thanks to Lee.
Very nice. Great view. Super nice people to deal with. Walking distance to wharf, downtown.
Had a great time. Everything clean and convenient.
Great Vacation! Great Location!
The experience renting from Lee was perfect! She was very prompt in communicating, and everything was exactly as described. The location is absolutely perfect! I felt like a true San Francisco resident as this condo is tucked away on a cul-de-sac in a residential portion of the city. All major attractions are within walking distance, or a cheap Uber ride. The condo was furnished very nicely, and you cannot beat the VIEW! I would highly recommend this condo to anyone traveling to San Francisco.
Great Location, Great View
The location in North Beach provided a great view of the Bay and Alcatraz. It was very accessible to the many restaurants along Stockton in Little Italy and Chinatown. It was clean and comfortable. The owner, Lee, provided touches that made our stay welcoming and special for my wife's birthday.
Experience San Francisco as a Native
From the informative communication with the owner, Lee Morgan, through a smooth check in and introduction to the condo, my husband and I knew a great week lay ahead. The condo was beautifully furnished, well maintained, and well-equipped, and the view of the Bay from the living room windows was breathtaking. The location couldn't be better. Street parking was easy, a rarity in San Francisco, and we could leave the car to walk to all the places we wanted to go-- the murals at Coit Tower, the Ferry Building to shop for dinner, North Beach for a late lunch near Washington Square, a ferry ride to Sausalito to see the City from the other side of the Bay. Then home to the quiet respite that the condo neighborhood offers. If we lived in San Francisco instead of thirty miles away, we would choose this condo and this neighborhood as the perfect place to be to experience San Francisco as a native, not a tourist.
Beautiful spot. Great neighborhood. Would go back
It's just a short walk down the hill to the heart of North Beach, San Francisco's old world Italian neighborhood.
Fabulous restaurants, bars, music venues, and coffeehouses, Washington Square Park, French and Italian bakeries, City Lights Bookstore, Pilates and yoga studios, the Sunday farmer's market and more delights are just footsteps away.
Coit Tower, the iconic landmark atop Telegraph Hill, is a few blocks away offering 360 degree views of the city, the bay and both bridges. The inside of Coit Tower houses historic New Deal murals. We are also near the famous Filbert Street steps, home to the wild parrots of Telegraph Hill. The bustling markets of Chinatown, the financial district and downtown Union Square are all within walking distance.
The cablecar is 5 blocks away. City buses 30 and 45 run down Columbus Ave and the Embarcadero streetcar is also nearby. The Blue and Gold Ferry to Sausalito, Tiburon, Angel island and Alcatraz are down the hill at Piers 39 and 41.
Shopping is easy as we have a Trader Joe's, a Safeway, a natural foods store and many gourmet specialty shops close by.
