Breathtaking bay views abound from this top floor condo in a 1908 Queen Anne style home with quintessential San Francisco charm. Completely remodeled in 2001 with a contemporary flair. Updated in 2013 with brand-new designer interiors and furnishings. 2BR/2 Bath, Gourmet kitchen, Office, WIFI, high ceilings, and bright skylights.

Expansive vistas, spanning from Russian Hill, the Bay, Alcatraz and Coit Tower, are beautifully framed by a wall of windows in the open living, dining and kitchen area. 360-degree views of the city lights and Bay Bridge from the rooftop.

Located between two nearby cable car lines running to waterfront and downtown shopping districts. Easy walking distance to vibrant neighborhood restaurants, markets, wine bars, and shops of North Beach, Telegraph Hill, Hyde & Union, Fisherman's Wharf, and Polk Street.

Wonderful Place for a Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were in San Francisco for a part business, part pleasure trip and we thoroughly enjoyed this property. It is well furnished, has a unique and appealing decor, is well appointed and has a great view of the bay. It is also close walking distance to North Beach so there are plenty of great restaurants to choose from. The owners made sure everything was clean and in place for our arrival. A wonderful place for a getaway!

The perfect vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in San Francisco with our teenage children, and we COULD NOT have found a more perfect place to stay! The apartment itself is immaculate and up-to-date in every way. The bedrooms, bathrooms, and study are wonderful, but the view from the living room/kitchen area is truly unbelievable! One entire wall is glass ceiling to almost floor, and it is truly a panoramic view of the bay and the neighborhoods leading up to the waterfront, as well as Coit Tower. We spent many a morning watching the fog roll in then melt away as the sun came out, and many an exhausted evening watching the sunset and the lights in the city come on. Our daughter even made a bed out of pillows so she sleep in front of that view! The location is perfect! An easy walk to wonderful restaurants in North Beach and Chinatown, as well as to Ghirardelli's and the Pier 39 area. Our landlords were awesome, and even checked in to see how we were. We can't imagine ever staying anywhere else every time we return!

  • 5 of 5

From the time we arrived we marvelled at the view from the large living room windows

The beds were very comfortable and bedrooms a good size. There is a good kitchen and enough space for two couples to relax

Bathrooms are excellent

There are several superb restaurants in this lovely neighbourhood within walking distance as is Fishermans Wharf

All n all a great stay

Excellent property - well furnished, great location, terrific view of the bay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 spent a week in this flat. It is furnished quite nicely. It was quiet. The view of the bay made the trip for us. We'd sit and watch the ships and activity and beauty of the scenary for hours. The flat is in a "clean & safe" area of the city. It's about a 15 minute downhill walk to Fisherman's Wharf. Several restaurants are within easy walking distance. Uber was never more than 3 or 4 minutes wait. Zipcar locations are half a mile away. The flat is on a hill -- but that is entertaining in it's own way. Owners are super helpful. All the information you need for the flat, nearby restaurants etc. is provided. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Beautiful, comfortable with great views

  • 5 of 5

Our family, including 3 children, stayed here for several nights and it was exactly what we needed. The apartment is really clean and well kept with comfortable beds and cozy linens, not to mention that it's beautifully decorated. The bedrooms are all a nice size and our son slept on the living room sofa bed and seemed to like it. Te kitchen is great if you were going to cook (we didn't) and the washer and dryer were clean and functional. The bathrooms were also super clean and great.

But the most amazing thing about this place is the view. Wow! I don't think the pictures can do it justice. The entire backside of the apartment is a wall of windows that looks down Russian Hill at Fisherman's Wharf and Alcatraz. You can see Telegraph Hill out the right side of the window and Coit Tower. It's just stunning. So after a long day of walking up and down hills and exploring the city, we had a glass of wine and looked at that amazing view for hours.

The hosts were really professional in all of their interactions. They responded quickly to emails and a phone call and promptly returned my deposit after we left. They also also left several binders with useful maps and information and very clear directions on how to use the television.

We had a supurb time in San Francisco and a large part of the reason was that we had a clean, beautiful place to go "home" to at the day and relax. Thanks, Teri and John!

What a grand home and view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five spent a wonderful week in this condo in San Fran. The view was phenomenal to wake up to and retire against. While we did no cooking, (vacation for me) the kitchen was well appointed and the washer dryer quite helpful with kids and clothes. The owners have done a masterful job in design and the local artwork is such a nice touch. You should know that it is a little hilly for the trek home if walking but well worth the exercise. And very well located to restaurants, Dylan's bike rentals and yummy Swensens ice cream. Sweet vacation and lodging all around!
