CITY and BAY VIEWS, ROMANTIC and INSPIRING - A UNIQUE SAN FRANCISCO EXPERIENCE. Make your visit especially memorable by staying on top of Telegraph Hill, one of San Francisco’s most sought after and historically interesting neighborhoods. The Telegraph Hill neighborhood is charming and quiet, and below the Hill is North Beach where you can find many fine restaurants, unique shops, and entertainment. Within minutes, you can walk to North Beach, Chinatown or the Financial District or walk up the hill to Coit Tower. Fisherman’s Wharf, Pier 39, the Embarcadero, the Ferry Building, Union Square and the Moscone Center are also within walking distance.
We now have two apartments to choose from, both with wonderful ambience, views and natural light throughout. The apartments have been recently renovated, are tastefully furnished, and have wood-burning fireplaces, hardwood floors and private parking. A set of French doors separates the living room from the bedroom. The apartments are ideal for a couple, but in addition to the queen-size bed in the bedroom, there is a living room sleeper sectional with a full-size memory foam mattress. All dinnerware, cooking utensils, and bed, bath and kitchen linens are provided. The newly tiled kitchens are completely equipped for cooking and include a dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, mixer, and blender. The apartment has in-unit washer/dryer, high speed internet access/wireless, cable TV, DVD/CD player, hairdryer, alarm clock and iron/board. The use of a wireless phone can be arranged.
Apartment #3West is a corner unit with south and west facing windows with views of Coit Tower, the Bay Bridge, the Financial District and Russian Hill. It is located on the 3rd story of a 4-story walk-up. Apartment #2East is our new listing. This apartment is also a corner unit with south and east facing windows with views of the Bay Bridge and the top of the Transamerica Building (the pyramid). Apartment #2East has a small private deck with a BBQ grill and table and chairs, a wonderful place to have coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. This apartment is located on the 2nd story of the building. Both apartments come with the use of one of the garages on the street-level of the building.
A corner market is conveniently located nearby as well as other shops, restaurants, bakeries and cafes down the hill in North Beach. A city bus runs conveniently up the hill. No smoking or pets.
NOTE: WE ALSO HAVE A 2-BEDROOM, 2-BATH, FULLY RENOVATED PENTHOUSE APARTMENT IN THE SAME BUILDING WITH AMAZING VIEWS FROM EVERY ROOM AVAILABLE. SEE VRBO #186508 OR CONTACT US USING THE SAME EMAIL PROVIDED BELOW.
We’ve stayed in Apartment 3 once before and returned because it is simply so perfect. When a friend from San Francisco visited, she referred to it as “the quintessential San Francisco fantasy experience”.
Perched on the top of Telegraph Hill with views in nearly every direction, you can pick your vista: Coit Tower, Russian Hill, the Financial District or the Bay Bridge. The apartment is beautifully maintained and has all the comforts of home, including parking, a washer/dryer, a very comfortable bed, and a full kitchen with everything you need.
Who could ask for anything more? Thanks Ave and Doris.
Everything that is needed for a comfortable stay is here! The apartment is well equipped (sheets, towels, kitchen utensils, etc). Location is great for walking and exploring the City and satisfyingly quiet for a restful nights sleep. Ave and Doris are wonderful to work with and I never worry that my stay here will be enjoyable.
We can only recommend this lovely address, a perfect location in San Francisco. The apartment is fully equipped, extremely practical and so nicely decorated: you feel at home from the very first moment you get in! We loved our stay!
Pour les européens que nous sommes, nous avons particulièrement apprécié que l'appartement soit vraiment équipé de tout, très bien tenu et la déco très personnalisée. Les propriétaires Ave et Doris ont été d'une extrême gentillesse et de bon conseil. Il faut juste avoir de bonnes jambes car la maison est presqu'au sommet de la colline Telegraph Hill (il y a aussi le bus 39 qui s'arrête en face), mais l'on sent vite ses efforts récompensés par les magnifiques vues dont on jouit depuis les fenêtres de l'appartement. Par ailleurs la situation est formidable, à 100 mètres de Washington Place en plein quartier North Beach (plein de bons restos et de boutiques sympa), très proche de Fisherman's Wharf et à 20 minutes à pied de Downtown.
Un vrai 5 étoiles ;-)
I spent a month in Apartment 2 and loved every moment of my stay. The apartment is true to the excellent reviews - it is spotless and the furnishings are very modern. Everything you need is in the apartment so all I needed to do was to pick up some groceries and I was set! I love cooking and the fully furnished kitchen was the highlight of my stay. The apartment is located in a very quiet, safe neighborhood and Ave was very kind and helpful throughout my stay. The number 39 bus does stop on the corner so it is very easy to get to Fisherman's Wharf, Coit Tower and Pier 39. You can always transfer to the number 30 or 45 bus on Columbus if you want to get to Union Square. Although San Francisco is a blast (You need to check out Wayfare Tavern and Benu for the best cuisine!), do make time to visit the wine country (Yountville, Sonoma, St.Helena) to check out the fantastic restaurants (Bouchon, French Laundry, Redd, Ad Hoc, Bistro Jeanty) and the wonderful wine tasting (Schramsburg, Chandon, Opus One, Joseph Phelps etc). You can get a very detailed booklet(with map and numbers for reservations) and awesome coupons from the Visitor's Center in Yountville.
I always enjoy my stay at Ave and Doris'. The listed description and photos are accurate, condition of the apartment always spotless, and in excellent condition. Each time I return, some upgrade has been made which makes each stay even more comfortable from the year previous. The apartment has always been well-furnished and comfortable so the additions have been extremely pleasing and convenient (e.g. wireless internet, washer/dryer, flat screen TV). Additionally, the owners are always available and wonderful to work with!
We have stayed with Ave and Doris a month every summer for four years. Everything the reviews say are so accurate! We cannot say enough about the views, the apartment cleanliness, the quiet, convenient location, the easy parking! There must be at least 50 restaurants within walking distance to try. But what amazes us every year is Ave and Doris' attention to detail. They make improvements like the washer/dryer, a flat screen high def TV and WiFi. This apartment is as close to perfection as you could ever get! They put our names on the mailbox so we can get mail. They have charcoal in the apartment because they know we like to grill. They have the bookshelves stocked with guide books and San Francisco themed movies. One year we accidently locked ourselves out and Ave was there in ten minutes to rescue us. Our San Francisco yearly vacation is the best we can imagine. It is all due to this 5-Star apartment and Ave and Doris. This is better than the any 5-Star Hotel, trust us!!!
