Top of the Hill Designer Flat in the Heart of San Francisco!

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 4, 2014
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Quintessential San Francisco Haven! Looking out to the bay through beautiful leaded-glass windows, you can see the cable car bustling up Hyde Street... the wild parrots of Telegraph Hill flying by... hear the sea lions barking at Fisherman’s Wharf... and on a foggy night, the deep sound of foghorns blowing.

Designer home located in the Heart of the city!  Less than 1 block to Hyde Street cable car as well as public transportation... 2 blocks to the famous, curvy Lombard Street... 3 blocks to Polk Street’s boutiques and restaurants on your way to Union Street and the hip Marina District... 5 blocks to historical Ghiradelli Square leading to Fisherman’s Wharf... and 6 blocks to North Beach, better known as ‘Little Italy’, and Chinatown.  All of which have an amazing variety of restaurants, wine bars and boutiques!

A fabulous 2-story, top-level flat with partial bay views from both the living room and private master suite, located on the 2nd floor.  The guest suite, on the 1st level, leads onto a private deck and gorgeous landscaped yard, which includes a gas bbq, lounge chair and table with (4-8) chairs.  There is a fully-stocked gourmet kitchen with gas stove, built-in microwave, dishwasher and granite bar counter that will seat (2) people. The dining area, located within the living room, seats up to (4) people comfortably.

Other amenities include Wi-Fi, DSL, 48” flat screen t.v. with surround sound, Direct TV in Living & Master rooms as well as HBO, piano, local telephone only and washer/dryer in the unit. Guidebooks, maps, menus from favorite restaurants, games and a variety of novels for your enjoyment will also be provided during your stay.

Please keep in mind: Parking is not included, but is rarely needed in this area as it is centrally located within the city... public transportation, including buses and taxis, are right around the corner. Absolutely NO smoking is allowed anywhere on the property, including the backyard. I also do not allow large gatherings at the flat for any reason. Not ideal for babies, small children or anyone with physical ailments - there are 40 outdoor stairs coming up to the front door, and the place is not child-proof.

I have enjoyed immensely being in this beautiful setting for over 10 years. Due to career and lifestyle changes, I am in the city less and less. So I am thrilled to be able to share this unique haven which encompasses so many San Francisco traditions. You will truly feel like you are a part of this fabulous city!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Heather,

We enjoyed your lovely home. We were not here much, because we had so much to see in a short time. After a long day we very much enjoyed the wine and fruit. Hope you like the Crown & Tanqueray. San Francisco is beautiful and we will be back. The east coast of Lake Michigan is a lovely vacation spot, look us up if you are in the area.

Thanks, Barry & Linda, Three Oaks, MI

Just enjoyed four wonderful days in San Francisco. The condo was absolutely first class and perfectly located with tremendous views of the city and bay. The flat was absolutely spotless, our host was very accommodating, and the in suite music library was a blast. Highly recommend this location to anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay in the heart of the city.

50th birthdays

  • 5 of 5
Everything about this place was great. There were four adults- two couples. The bedrooms are on different levels with their own bathrooms so there was lots of privacy if needed. The mornings spent with coffee in the livingroom window were the best way to start the day.
Cable car stop was less than two blocks, but everything is in walking distance if you can handle the hills ( it IS San Fran afterall).
All our needs were met, linen, full kitchen totally comfy besds, washer/dryer. I would only reccomend adding a chest of drawers in the downstairs bedroom. Back yard is secluded and functional.
We would definitely stay here again!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
This was our first rental through VRBO and it was a great experience. The apartment was just as described. Very clean and everything we needed was there. It was great to be only a half-block from the trolley. The views were also unbeatable. Great coffee shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. It is a climb to the top of the hill, but well worth it. I look forward to my next trip to San Francisco and staying here again.

Beautiful Russian Hill Apt.

  • 5 of 5
We are a couple who rent SF VRBO apts multiple times each year for up to a month and would definitely stay here again. Located near the busy restaurant and grocery area of Polk St, the apt. Is on a picturesque quiet street. One can see the Bay from the lovely large living/dining room next to a kitchen that is relatively spacious and modernized without losing vintage appeal. The downstairs bedroom overlooks a lovely garden but visitors should be aware that the one small closet in the room houses the washer/dryer with a few coat hooks. It is next to the beautifully appointed downstairs bathroom. The upstairs bedroom is large with a very comfortable bed and large closet. The upstairs bathroom is small but functional. It's hard to define charm but this place has it!
