Classic San Francisco Pied-À-Terre

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 24, 2016
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.

Perfect place with so much charm!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay! The home truly made us feel like a local. Everything was close by, either walking or a short uber ride away! Such a beautiful view from the patio! I'm so glad we decided on a vacation rental instead of staying at a hotel, it made our whole experience so much better!

Wonderful flat, terrific deck and views. Great location. Will definitely return.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days here and absolutely loved it! Perfect location and incredibly quiet - as frequent SF visitors, we've never experienced such a quiet location in the heart of the city. Parking is as advertised - need a small car - but we used ride sharing to get around town, which worked well. The flat is stocked with everything you need. Just bring a suitcase and enjoy the views and surrounding neighborhood!

GREAT ! Lovely, romantic, unforgetable

  • 5 of 5

We spent such a great time (one week) in this apartment, a perfect "pied a terre" to discover San Francisco.

Very cosy with a French touch, we appreciated a lot the terrace and its fantastic view, the living room with the bow window, the refined decoration, the well equipped kitchen, the chimneys in both living room and bedroom, the romantic "1900 style" bathroom ...

The Telegraph Hill district is very quiet and cool, but also close to Lombard street, Grant avenue, Columbus avenue, 10 minutes walk to Fisherman wharf.

Of course we highly recommend this apartment and we will come back soon ...

Thank you Mark to share with us this little piece of heaven :-)) Laurence and J.C.

Great location, very nice apartment

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for two weeks on a business trip, and really enjoyed my time. The location, near the top of Telegraph Hill, is great, close to the bustle of restaurants at Grant and Columbus, but just far enough away to be quiet and restful. The apartment was great, small, but had everything I needed. There's a great laundry service at Greenwich and Stockton, which I used a couple of times. I would definitely come back!

Beautiful condo in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I could not have asked for a more perfect place to stay for our week in San Francisco. The condo was on a quiet street but a close walk to many attractions and great restaurants. We felt completely at home and comfortable in this lovely condo and can't wait to come back!

Don't just visit there "Live" there and feel like one of the locals

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a true hidden gem in what i can only describe as one of the best locations in the city. For a couple of Aussies this was our first visit to San Francisco and like many other people we had always stayed in hotels, but this time we didn't just want to visit there we wanted to "LIVE" there and feel like one of the locals and this is the point of difference , i just wish we had done this before . As many have said the apartment has every thing you'll need for your stay in every respect . It is comfortable, tasteful and clean and the owner was very helpful .The convenience and closeness to to the lovely cafes and shops of the area was terrific, and at the end of a busy day it was great knowing that you were returning to a peaceful and tranquil place where you could recharge the batteries ready to head out the next day. As an Artist and Photographer it was wonderful watching the changing light reflecting on the distant buildings from the roof terrace each evening (try doing that from a regular maximum security concrete hotel.)

Sure the hills in the area are steep but my wife is in her mid 60's and i am late 60's and we managed ok perhaps we are fitter that others of our age but do not let this put you off from staying at this Wonderful location you will not regret it. Would we stay here again? 100% yes The worse thing was having to leave and return to our Winter in Oz! We left our hearts in San Francisco

Location

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.

Amenities

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.
