Reviews for this vacation apartment rental in San Francisco, California
October 19, 2013
Two couples in our early sixties...clean,bathroom and kitchen well equipped and updated...comfortable and cozy sitting area...walking distance to many sites...perfect for our needs. We found the bedrooms small for the furniture provided but understand these are on the list for updates. We would stay again

Where to start?? Dealings with owner - easy, friendly, accommodating and straightforward. Opportunity to store luggage until late flight made our last day a worthwhile day in SF rather than 10 hours in the airport. Apartment location- on Telegraph Hill, deep in the heart of North Beach. For those who may struggle with the hill (Union or Kearny), the solution is there in the form of the Muni #39 bus, which stops right outside the door. Best part of all is the feeling that you're a local, chatting to residents as you pick up some groceries, soaking up the most amazing vibes in North Beach. Few local gems for us - North Beach Pizza might be a guide book highlight, but the pizzas really are good. While you wait on take-out, enjoy a drink in the open-fronted Savoy Tivoli next door. For one of the best burgers and the most amazing fries ever, nip a few doors down to Mo's Grill. So many great places on the doorstep - we didn't stay away from North Beach any later than 7pm!!! Apartment itself - immaculate, equipped with everything we needed, new appliances, plenty linen, comfortable beds, great views. We'll definitely contact this owner for our next trip to SF.

A great stay

We had a really good stay. Our host Nathalie was kind and accommodating. Recent renovations have modernized this cozy unit. This is particularly true of the kitchen and shower. The apartment could not be in a better location. A great base for exploring the city. Want a nice place to eat? Throw a stone and you will hit about a dozen. Want a great view? Two blocks up the hill and it's Coit Tower. Walk down the hill to Washington Square and catch a bus to go farther afield. (Getting a Muni pass for three days or a week is a great deal.)

We stayed for just three nights but wish we had planned more time. Great location and very nice flat with updated kitchen and bath. It was close to many restaurants and public transportation. Would definitely stay here again. Owner was very helpful with any question.

Could not believe how great it was!

Very nice clean & quiet apartment. Fantastic location for vacation. Owners were very helpful and easy to communicate with. We were able to walk to Chinatown, Embarcadero, Ghirardelli, etc. Bakery on the corner was great for breakfast and breads for lunch. We were able to use the garage for our car & bikes. Coit tower was just behind the building – great to go watch the sunset at night. Price was great – cheaper than hotel and much nicer having a kitchen to use with teenagers. Can’t wait to go back!
Very nice rental, uphill.

We shall recommend this rental, no doubt : we were 3 in the 2-bedrooms flat, warmly & nicely decorated, well-furnished, with comfortable beds and no noise in the neighborhood. Good facilities corresponding to the description, VERY lively neighborhood 3 blocks away, easy access to downtown and stupendous view from Coit Tower ! Delicious restaurants all around ( Italian or Chinese mainly ). The only regret was not to find an un-expensive local supermarket or shopping place...contrary to other parts in town. We also enjoyed the many vintage shops, especially the music store ! A short but good stay in overall.

Perfect 1 BR apt, excellent location
September 14, 2009
Everyone we told that we were staying in North Beach was jealous! This is the perfect location. We could walk to Fishermans Wharf, the Ferry Building (where several of our tours started), Chinatown and were right in the middle of "Little Italy". Great restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk including Sodinis, Melt, Cafe Divine, Sushi on North Beach, and EXCELLENT pizza literally 2 blocks away at North Beach Pizza. New granite counters in kitchen and bathroom, immaculate bathroom, whole apt looks newly renovated which I think it was in like 2007. Very safe neighborhood. Cute cats to watch out the window on the roof next door! Starbucks coffee and a coffee maker in the kitchen! Washer/Dryer (coin op) in the garage-we used this halfway thru our trip which worked out great. Hairdryer in bathroom-leave yours home! No A/C but doesn't need it, the bay breeze is fabulous as this apt is on the 2nd floor. Definately recommend this apt!
Overall, an easy and enjoyable rental experience

My husband, adult child, and I rented the one bedroom flat offered in this building by the same owner (the two bedroom was booked). While it was small, it worked out. The biggest issue was that the cleaning crew did not adequately clean the bedroom prior to our arrival. The owner, Nathalie, was super about it, though--she apologized sincerely and offered a resolution that was to our satisfaction. Plus, she was very easy to reach and the rental process was painless. The neighborhood is great. Coit Tower is one block away. Buses are three short blocks away. Great restaurants two blocks away. Stores 1.5 blocks away. BART is either a short bus ride or a nice walk away. We would stay there again and have recommended the flat to my brother and his wife who will be traveling to SF soon. (Tip: If you walk downtown, take Grant Avenue to avoid hills.)
