Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
This unique property, which was originally constructed in 1908, was completely rebuilt and decorated in 2009. The rebuilding kept intact the apartment's classic San Franciscan style as well as its feel. The flat is located in the heart of Telegraph Hill's North Beach area, San Francisco's most desirable location due to its uniquely good weather, sun exposure and centrality to many of the city's most attractive features. The apartment's positioning on Telegraph Hill places it steps below Coit Tower, a location that allows for breathtaking views of the San Francisco skyline.
The property has a living/dining room, kitchen, 1 bedroom, 1 full bath, and a large roof terrace. The living/dining area enjoys southern light exposure year-round and has spectacular views of both Nob Hill and Russian Hill through its large windows. The kitchen itself is equipped with a new 24' Viking range, 24' high end apartment refrigerator, and a high quality Bosch dishwasher. The bedroom is above a quiet street and the bathroom has a full shower and claw foot tub. The terrace has full sun and has a peek-a-boo view of the Golden Gate bridge.
North Beach is a wonderful part of San Francisco characterized by its culture and nightlife. There is an abundance of restaurants, shopping and tourist destinations within walking distance from the flat that include City Lights Bookstore, Mama's Cafe and Mario's Bohemian Cigar Shop. From the apartment to North Beach's Washington Square is about a 3 minute walk.

We could not have asked for more!
And perhaps no minutes are more important than those first minutes when a couple arrives after ten hours of traveling - weary, stiff, and not a little cranky - and finds their dreamaway has been waiting for THEM.
We climbed a darling staircase carpeted in fuchsia and spilled ourselves into a room cut straight from the pages of House Beautiful. The air was cool and the windows were open, a perfect undertow accentuating the blazing fire pushing a belt of heat throughout a room teeming with crisp, clean light, lithe lines, and punches of pizazz and color woven into every nook and atop every mantle. The word "gorgeous" fits nicely.
When I leave the comfort and bounty of my own home and take up residence someplace else, the very worst thing that can happen - a total vacation crusher - is feeling as though I don't have any of my THINGS. I packed everything but the dog (no pets allowed), and having a home, with a microwave, refrigerator, hand towels, silverware, dishes, blankets, television, and plenty of room for all our things made us feel like we were exactly where this site advertises: home and away, both at once.This place comes fully stocked, with everything from extra blankets to an espresso machine, but it doesn't skimp on the essentials either. And after a long day away, full of walking and sightseeing, coming "home" was an absolute pleasure. I enjoyed being among the frenetic energy during the day, however, I recharge when I am alone, and without a place in which to be still and quiet, to sip coffee, and read a book, I would never have been able to defizzle enough to enjoy the go-go-go. Staying here was like having our own timezone. We decided when and where to.
The views, oh my, the views; just outside the back door is a sprawling view of the city. Many a nights my husband and I stood outside and basked in the lights, the fog, the city wrapping its arms around us. We were fortunate enough to have three spectacularly sunny days, and I thoroughly enjoyed "downtime," which involved copious reading on the deck, under the umbrella.
Thank you for helping make our ten year anniversary one we will never forget, and always reflect back on with fondness.

One block from Little Italy and a couple more to Chinatown. Just blocks from Fisherman's Wharf and steps from Coit Tower. The place is super clean and obviously furnished and painted by an interior designer. There us an Alice in Wonderland vibe with large keyholes and Victorian influences everywhere. AMAZING tub and also enclosed shower. VERY comfortable bed, and a view of the city to die for!
We will be back because this is now my go-to spot in San Francisco. It was also my first experience with VRBO and I couldn'd be happier. No more hotels for me!
Our magic vacation
Great Location and Beautiful Home!
You won't be disappointed here! It is a little slice of SF heaven!
thanks for the nice review and excellent suggestion. We have left soap etc. from time to time, and it didn't seem to be getting used. I think in the future we will keep a stash in the linen cabinet just in case. I'm glad you had a nice stay!
From the Owner
“San Francisco is home to a great deal of diversity and culture and North Beach is the heart of that culture. Also, because Mark is a designer, he insisted upon finding a location with good weather and proximity to the quaint, classic areas of the city. We love this location due to the ability to walk everywhere and the feeling of being in a large city, but not being overwhelmed. North Beach is the epitome of a comfortable, inviting neighborhood with all the positive features of a large city.”

From the Owner
“The outdoor patio is a beautiful respite after a day spent exploring the city. The patio is quiet and has spectacular views that can be appreciated at any time of day, whether you have just woken up or are coming home after a long night out. Another favorite feature is that the surrounding areas can easily be visited on foot, and public transportation or cab travel can get you everywhere else. We love that a car is not a necessity. On a normal day, we wake up and walk to a café and relax before heading out on our explorations. The truth is, North Beach has a feel that is very much like that of a classic European city with cafés, good restaurants and classic architecture.”
