About the Owner

For the last 20 years, my husband has served as Chancellor of two statewide higher educational systems: the University of West Virginia System, in Charleston, West Virginia; and the Tennessee Board of Regents, in Nashville, Tennessee. He is a very gentle and gracious man who cares deeply about education. Yet with state resources strained to the limit these days, public education is a highly politicized enterprise, with increasing competition for decreasing dollars. So after each of his quarterly board meetings, I would whisk Charles out to San Francisco for a little break: to restore and re-charge, to rest and read, to walk the wonderful streets of San Francisco and to eat in grand restaurants in the City.

The result is this apartment. It is such a perfect spot, with its panoramic views, elegant interiors, and central location: it has become our home away from home, beckoning us from our busy lives, something we look forward to and truly embrace in our lives.

If you are looking for an opportunity for just the right place, to get a break, restore and re-charge, and still be in the center of a vibrant city with all it has to offer, this could be the place for you.

A real gem of an apartment

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week here late 2013. Booking the apartment was hassle-free, prompt, and professionally handled by the owner. Arriving at the apartment, we found everything as advertised. The apartment location is terrific, with stunning views of the Bay, into town, and of the Bay Bridge. Yes, the apartment is on a steep street and up several flights of stairs, but we did not find these to be problems. Location is excellent, within good walking distance of most of the tourist locations. The neighbourhood is safe and pleasant, with a corner store not far away, a good number of laundries, and cafes/restaurants. Friendly neighbour downstairs. Kitchen is well equipped, so you can buy and cook. We didn't drive, so can't comment on parking. We totally enjoyed our stay and will certainly look to book with this owner should we come back to San Francisco for another vacation. Two small things: don't be surprised if you see a family of raccoons walk past on the neighbour's roof, right outside the apartment windows, or be put off by the musty smell in the entry steps. The apartment itself is bright, clean, and dry. A real gem.

Wonderful adventure in SF!

  • 5 of 5
This urban unit is nicely appointed with a fully outfitted modern kitchen -great for my chef of a husband- , fabulous views from every room...yes, even the loo! I'm a stickler for cleanliness and it was spotless. The owner was a delight to do business with and answered all questions promptly. The apartment is situated within walking distance to the wharf, Coit Tower, SOMA, etc. We're walkers and took the hills as a challenge, but for those less inclined to hoof it, public transport via bus, cable car and taxi are all close at hand. We look forward to staying here on our next visit to SF!

Best view in town!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here in July, 2012 and cannot recommend it enough! The views are amazing from EVERY room! Located at the top of a very steep hill, walkable to just about anywhere. We are a family of 4 and had plenty of space, everything we could possibly need was in the apartment. Sherry was very helpful and patient with us. Had a fantastic San Francisco experience. Thanks so much! from the Hess family in Zurich Switzerland

EXCELLENT VIEWS, LOCATION AND COMFORT

  • 5 of 5
Views are as presented and impressive. Overall, the unit was clean, nicely updated, cozy, and comfortably outfitted. Loved the trendy bath, king-sized bed, well-equipped kitchen, sheet glass mirror accents, wood décor and overall feel. Well located. You can walk to everything, depending on how physical you like to be, if you don’t want to walk as much, also very convenient to bus and cable car lines – be sure to get your 1, 3 or 7 day MUNI pass, it’s a GREAT way to see the city. Speaking of physical, this is a classic San Francisco flat, the sloping streets and stairs to enter this delightful abode are not for the weak of heart. Only issue during our stay was a low supply of towels = 6 night stay /2 adults + 2 towels; two more were provided upon request, although soft and fluffy a shortage was still perceived. Will look to return on our next visit and recommend to friends and family accompanied with towel advisory.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you loved your stay in San Francisco. When we read reviews with words like, "impressive," "well-equipped," and "well-located," it makes us very happy indeed, and certainly is our own experience when we stay. It is helpful too to know our guests needed more towels: we have asked our cleaning folks to be more generous, and we have added information in our Guest Directory so that guests have the option of ordering additional linen and cleaning services during their stay, We look forward to your return visit soon!

We loved this Apartment!

I agree with all of the reviews. This is a spectacular apartment. It's in a convenient location and has amazing views. The pictures don't do justice to the sunsets you can see from the living room and bedroom.
