vacation rental description

This charming 2 bedroom Russian Hill flat, in an Edwardian building built in 1907, is the perfect location for your San Francisco get-away. The building is located on a quiet street in the delightful Russian Hill neighborhood that is full of old world charm, and is conveniently located near many of the wonderful sites and flavors that San Francisco has to offer:

1½ blocks to cable car (Hyde Street)

Less than 10 minute walk to historic North Beach

Less than 10 minute walk to bustling Chinatown

Less than 10 minute walk to Polk Street cafes and shops

3 minute cable car ride to Lombard St

5 minute cable car ride to Ghirardelli Square and Fisherman’s Wharf

Imagine waking up in this classic San Francisco flat deciding what to do with your day. You could go to a North Beach bakery for cappuccino and a pastry, followed by a walk to Coit Tower and Washington Square. Or you could head to Chinatown for Dim Sum, go souvenir shopping on Grant Ave followed by a traditional foot massage. Maybe you want to go to a coffee shop on Polk Street followed by an afternoon of window shopping at the many boutiques on Polk and Union streets. Or maybe you’ll take the cable car to Fisherman’s Wharf for a seafood brunch followed by a ferry boat ride to Alcatraz.

About the flat:

The master bedroom has a king size bed and bay window, decorated with art deco accents. The second bedroom has a queen size bed, original pocket doors that open to the living room, and is decorated with authentic California Plein-Air paintings.

The living room has a brand new, super comfortable pull-out sleeper sofa that sleeps two people. There are hardwood floors throughout the flat.

The newly renovated kitchen has beautiful original tile work from the 1920s as well as many contemporary conveniences, including a new dishwasher and microwave. I love to cook and I’ve stocked this kitchen with all the cookware, vintage dishware and cookbooks you need to make your own feasts if you so desire.

In classic San Francisco fashion, the bathroom and toilet room are separated. Both have original tile from the 1920s as well as vintage art deco mirrors.

Amenities include:

• Washer and Dryer in unit

• Complimentary coffee and tea

• Bedding and towels provided

• Shampoo, soap and blow dryer provided

• 50' HD Cable TV and high speed wireless internet

• Telephone with free domestic service

• Small outdoor yard with gas grill

• iPod docking station

• Parking in the garage below the flat is available for an additional $30 per day

Since this flat is located on a hill, if you don’t like the idea of walking up or down a hill you may want to consider renting a car or staying in a flatter (but not nearly as scenic or convenient!) area of town.

San Francisco is a great town for walking, but if you want to drop into a gym or attend a yoga class, there are several facilities close by.

No smoking anywhere on the property, including the outdoor backyard and the front steps.

traveler reviews for this san francisco apartment rental

The best VRBO rental ever!

Review submitted: April 6, 2014   Date of arrival: March 22, 2014

Our family of 5 loved this flat. It was adorable, comfortable and absolutely fitting with the beautiful San Francisco environs. The owner literally thought of everything. I have used VRBO to rent 8-10 vacation places, and this location and flat is hands down the best place we've ever stayed in. Every detail was perfected, and Kenji was a perfect host. The location is great, and you are in walking distance or cable car to almost everywhere you'd want to go. We're going back, for sure!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car

BEAUTIFUL Flat in a Great Neighbourhood!

Review submitted: March 25, 2014   Date of arrival: March 17, 2014

My family and I arrived early in SF but Kenji was there to greet us with hot tea and a warm smile. He is his flat personified! He welcomed us with a tour of his lovely flat and an extensive portfolio of SF information. If that's not the way to start your vacation I don't know what is. I was travelling with my husband and two 11 year olds and a 9 year old. They enjoyed their stay at Kenji's as much as I did. One day, they even walked all the way from Fisherman's Wharf to the flat without too much whining! We liked the fact that it was close to the cable cars and there were many local restaurants nearby as we ate dinner out every night. We had a car but only used it to visit the GG Park and the Presidio. It was nice to be among the locals and not to be surrounded by tourists all the time. We had too much of that in Fisherman's Wharf. We did manage to make use of Kenji's kitchen as we had breakfast at the flat every morning. We shopped at Trader Joe's which is nearby.

Amenities were top notch such as the flat's décor(Japanese inspired), luxurious bedding (I want that duvet!), Japanese toilet (kids loved that) and the on demand hot water (husband loved that). There were little touches as well such as the full bottles of shampoo/conditioner/body wash, liquid detergent for washer, coffee, tea and lots of towels. I can't say enough good things about the property and about Kenji. He really loves SF and he can't wait to tell you all about it. We followed almost all his recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing secret spots and weren't disappointed.

Thank you so much for opening up your home and city to me and my family. Our trip to SF will hold fond memories that will include you and your beautiful flat.

Awesome Flat in Great Location!

Review submitted: March 17, 2014   Date of arrival: March 10, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful San Francisco flat. Kenji was an excellent host and the accommodations were superior. Kenji greeted us upon our arrival...slippers were waiting at the door and we were quickly offered green tea while he reviewed the extensive materials he has prepared to help guests plan sightseeing activities etc. The flat is located in a quiet residential neighbourhood within walking distance of many of the key sightseeing attractions. We felt very safe walking in the area and we thoroughly enjoyed the local restaurants. There are also several vantage points close to the flat that offer excellent views of the city. While we spent most of our time in San Francisco exploring the city the apartment amenities were appreciated when we finally took a break. The flat is well appointed with lovely furnishings and the sheets and towels were definitely luxurious. The teenager travelling with us tested the pull out sofa and gave it a great review. We also appreciated the complimentary bottle of wine and fine chocolates! We even found time in the evening to read some of Kenji's many books on San Francisco. Based on our outstanding experience we can highly recommend this rental!!!
