Luxurious & Modern Nob Hill Flat, Amazing Bay Views!
This gorgeous renovated flat is situated in beautiful and world renowned Nob Hill. It is perfectly located within 2-15 minutes of walking distance to almost every main attraction the city has to offer! Fisherman's Wharf, Union Square, North Beac …
My wife and I spent a week in the apartment, along with another couple of English friends. Apart from a little bit of quirkiness in the plumbing, which seemed to sort itself out, I can't fault it. From the first contact I had with the owner, Melissa, she was a pleasure to deal with. Her tips on local restaurants and stores were very helpful.
The apartment met all our expectations. It is very modern, spacious comfortable. The access stairs would be bit a challenging for anyone with mobility issues and even without them, they are better negotiated with several smaller bags rather than one large one, but once inside, its a delight. Having said that, it's location is so good that really did not spend that much time inside - three televisions and we never switched any of them on. Its very handy for getting to Union Square, but equally so for Fisherman's Wharf.
The best thing though is the cable cars. Two routes go past the door and we ended the week seeing them as the natural mode of transport, rather than tourist attractions. And if you do need to go places where they don't go, there are good buses a block or two away. The apartment is in the same block as the Cable Car Museum and the car barn, where the cable cars are stored over night. It means that every single cable car comes past the apartment just after midnight, runs up the hill past the points and then freewheels into the barn. Its quite a sight, especially for a transport buff as one of our friends is. They are noisy though so if you are someone who likes to sleep with a window open, you might have to accept the double glazing and aircon instead (both of which are excellent) rather than the shake, rattle and roll of retiring cable cars in the early hours.
If we were booking again, we'd go back without hesitation.
We stayed at this condo for a week in February. The flat was very clean and well-decorated. Nick and Melissa had been very helpful throughout our stay. We had a pleasant time. We will definitely come back and stay at this flat again!!
Thank you Nick and Melissa!!
My family from Michigan rented this condo for a week's stay and all were very pleased. The accommodations were exactly as pictured. There was some initial concern regarding the number of stairs to the condo, but everyone got into the swing of it and saw it as a good way to work off all the excellent Chinese food that is right outside the door in Chinatown. The large sized kitchen,eating area, and living room were great as gathering areas for us and another family group that also stayed in the building. Cable car access at the corner made trips to downtown and Fisherman's Wharf (and Alcatraz Tour pier) easy and fun. In terms of other attractions, the cable car museum is literally on the same block and it was easy to get to the Asian Art Museum, by public transportation, where we enjoyed the preview party for the TerraCotta Warrior exhibit. Melissa and Nick were so accommodating in allowing access to the unit for viewing before the rental and to drop off provisions before arrival. This rental experience could not have been better and we will be back. Only two suggestions from the whole group: drapery or shades in the front room to counter the brightness in the morning and paper napkins
We brought a group of 6 to San Francisco and found this to be the PERFECT place to stay. The flat was set up perfectly for us and all the furnishings were top shelf. We joked about the fact that a lot of the stuff was better than what we had at home. Everything we found at the apratment matched what was on the web page so there were no surprises. The property was spotless and well maintained. Nick and Melissa were onsite to address the questions we had when we arrived. They could not have been more prompt or nicer to work with. The location is great for groups that want to be able to walk to the sites of San Francisco. We were close to Chinatown, North Beach, Nob Hill, the Financial District and for the adventuresome, it was walking distance to the Wharf. For anyone, including family and friends, who wants a great experience in the city I would recommend this location. Thank you Nick and Melissa
We were a group of 6 in SF for the Nike Women's Marathon and this was a perfect flat for our visit. We could walk to Union Square(the starting line for the race), Chinatown, and Fisherman's Wharf and with the cable car lines conveniently located had another option to get around as well. The flat was tastefully decorated and clean. The photos accurately reflect the flat. We loved the views! The security system /camera was excellent and we rented the garage for our vehicle. The owners were very good to work with and had many wonderful suggestions on restaurants and things to do in the area.
Our week at the apartment was wonderful! The apartment was clean, tastefully furnished and well-represented by the photos. We (two couples) had private space in the bedrooms and baths. Morning coffee and evening martinis were enjoyed in the living room, accompanied by the spectacular view! When it was time to explore the city or go out to dinner, we hopped on one of the two extremely convenient cable car lines using our $27 7-day MUNI pass. It was easy to walk down to the waterfront or North Beach and take the cable car up the hill at the end of the day...or to take the cable car up to Hyde St. to the wonderful neighborhood bistros and then walk downhill after dinner! Melissa and Nick were very helpful throughout the entire rental process.
Thank you Melissa and Nick!
Everything you read about this property is correct, except the negatives. The photos are actual and the place is outstanding. From the street, it doesn’t look like much. Once inside, it’s fantastic. There were 6 of us and we had a fantastic time. Took us a couple of days to figure out, but you can get a 3 day pass on the MUNI for $21 each. Two cable car lines are right outside your door. Sure, the first night you have to get used to the noise of the cable cars, but that’s part of the charm. The Fremont Hotel is 3 blocks and so are the Mark Hopkins and California Club. It is walking distance to many many sights in San Francisco. It is fringe Nob Hill, but I’d trade that for the quality and price any day. Nick was very nice and Melissa was out of town. EVEN the cable car guys knew who both were and how many of their guests had loved the “apartment”. You can put our family on that list! We will be back.
Seven of us visited San Francisco for the first time last month. We had a wonderful experience with the city and especially with our condo rental! The pictures do not do this place justice. It is absolutely beautiful! We loved the fact that we were so close to the cable car line and in walking distance to cute shops and restaurants. We prepared several meals in the gourmet kitchen where we had everything that we needed. The beds were so comfortable that I had to call Melissa and ask what brand the master bed was. We also loved the open floor plan where we all could visit and relax. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting San Francisco!
This was the best stay we've had in San Francisco. The place was spotless and had all the conveniences you could think of. Perfect location in Nob Hill for seeing the city, the cable car stop is just outside the door. Great views too! Thanks Nick and Mellisa!
Stayed here for 3 nights in April 2011 and wish we had booked a longer stay. Outstanding location, with many nice restaurants in the area plus Fisherman's Wharf and Union Square a short cable car ride away. Melissa & Nick provided all the necessary information and the Flat was perfectly equipped. Can't wait to come back!
We were so incredibly happy with this apartment, we never wanted to leave! Inside is just amazing. The pictures do not do it justice. The amenities are those that you do not find in a typical rental. The place was spotless and very neat when we arrived. Melissa and Nick were so thoughtful in making sure every need of ours was met, which made the experience that much more great! Also, the location was superb. It was very convenient to get around the city easily without a car.
