Perfect Vacation Location. Bay View, Cable Car in Front.
Best location for your visit to San Francisco. Enjoy the convenience of an easy walk to Financial District, Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, Union Square, the theater District, or just simply take the Cable Car.
This is the ideal place to have th …
We stayed here while attending a conference. The apartment is right in front of a cable car stop and the owner left us two unlimited transit passes which made everything extremely convenient. There's a few nice breakfast cafes nearby as well.
The apartment itself was great. Very clean, updated, and great beds.
Very comfortable, well maintained apartment, convienent to most locations in the city. Owner provided city transportation passes: a huge plus. Rooms comfortable. Beds comfortable. Friendly neighborhood. Do not miss free Cable Car museum up the street, and put money in the jar! One issue with kitchen equipment responded to in a timely manner.
Owner follow up exceptional.
The apartment was just how it was pictured and was very comfortable and quiet. We used the free Muni passes every day, especially to get the cable car right out front to either the Wharf or to downtown. The apartment is within walking distance of Chinatown, North Beach, and so much more. Yes, it's on the 4th floor but the steps are good exercise. Mike was there to help us with the luggage the first day. We would definitely rent this apartment again and we can definitely recommend it to others.
Really enjoyed our stay. Very clean ,attractive decor great details such as clipper cards.
Would definitely stay again and highly recommend it to anyone seeking a convenient location.
Apartment is as stated. Convenient location. Clipper cards a huge plus. Great restaurant right across the street for dinner. Will definitely keep in mind of future visits to the city. Owner is very nice to work with.
My wife and I, along with another couple stayed here for 4 nights. The accommodations even exceeded our expectations. It was very clean and had ample room for the 4 of us. It was very convenient having a cable car stop just outside our door.
This apartment was perfect for our family of four. It is clean, spacious, quiet, well furnished and convenient. It is even better than the pictures. Mike quickly responded to any questions we had and was very accommodating. We were able to easily walk to North Beach, Chinatown and Union Square. The cable car stop outside the front door is very convenient.
We highly recommend this apartment and would definitely stay here again.
In North Beach, we also recommend Sodini's (510 Green Street) for dinner, Golden Boy Pizza (542 Green Street) for pizza and Gino and Carlo (548 Green Street) for drinks.
Description of apartment is accurate! Very comfortable and a perfect location! Mike was very helpful... Provided us with Clipper cards to use for transportation and gave us maps and guide book. We were able to leave our rental car parked in his garage. We loved the view from bedroom windows! Be sure to walk up a block on Mason to the Cable Car Museum. It's very interesting and FREE! Make reservations for Alcatraz tour a few weeks before you come, they sell out. It's a great tour! Easy walk to Chinatown and North beach, also the wharf . Ride the cable car or bus back up the hills. I love renting from an interested owner and not some management company! Highly recommend this rental!
We made our first visit from Australia to San Francisco staying in the apartment from the 23rd till the 28th May. Mike, the owner, was quick to respond to all our questions and we found the apartment to be clean and we enjoyed the space and modern décor as well as the close proximity to everything. The steps looked daunting with our luggage but they proved a bonus, being good exercise so we didn’t feel so guilty after too much good food. Beds were comfortable and the provision of the 2 Clipper cards was invaluable.
The apartment helped make our stay a memorable one.
I must admit I did look for an iron and ironing board but I can now see where Mike has answered that query from another review. It probably would be helpful to add that to the list of instructions for guests to know how to access them.
I came down with my parents, took my Dad to the Stones for his 70th. This flat was central to everything SF has to offer. The cable car out front was uber convient, the clipper cards that Mike left for us to use were a huge bonus, thanks Mike. My parents loved having their own space, the apartment was spit spot, fresh and clean. Mike was lovely and helped pass along an important message to my parents after I had left. The beds were comfy, slept like a log! All in all a terrific place and if given the opportunity, I would most certainly stay again.
This apartment was a nice surprise we had on our stay. The building is very well conserved and the apartment is modern and very well decorated and furnished. It has everything you need and is minutes away from all interest points of the city. In addition to that the owner is very supportive and have us tips, maps and explanation on how eveything works in the city, which was of great value specialy if you're from outside the US. I recommend it and will stay there when back in SF!
Positive comments: Great location! Cable car stops nearby an added plus! Newly remodeled! Look past the building entryway.. the apt is much nicer. Negatives: No iron or ironing board available. No electric coffee maker. Beds were not very comfortable. Smaller bedroom mattress caved in the middle. Rug in livingroom is stained, too bad as apartment is well kept! Livingroom would benefit from additional seating. Only one couch and one chair. Overall, it was very conveniently located and a nice place to stay. Mike was very accommodating to work with!
Great place to stay for a getaway. Owner is very friendly and answered all of my questions. Place actually looks bigger in person. Only downfall was finding parking but besides that everything was perfect.
This is a great, small apartment for either two couples sharing or a small family. As others have noted, the location couldn't be better as it sits almost on top of Nob Hill with cable car stops right outside the door. The pair of transit passes that come with the apartment & San Francisco's outstanding public transportation system made getting anywhere we wanted to go fast & simple. This proved a triple advantage because not only did we not need a car; we also didn't have to worry about the exorbitant cost of San Francisco parking. The good thing is that being on the 4th. floor, the noise from the cable cars isn't particularly intrusive, even though the bedrooms overlook the street. Of course, if you're out of shape or have mobility issues, the bad thing is that same 4th. floor location as there's no elevator. The furnishings are simple, but comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped, although a few more dishes might be a good idea. We found that it was usually necessary to hand-wash cups or dishes as we'd run out of one or the other long before the dishwasher was full. The beds are excellent: really comfortable mattresses & good linens.
And finally, a special mention for Mike, our host & his family who made themselves available to take in one of our bags after the airline misplaced it, thereby making it possible for us to have an evening out & then, on our last day, storing our luggage for us until our evening departure.
This property is a perfect place to stay in San Francisco. Great neighborhood and location. Central to everything. Only noise was from Trolly cars, but not bad at all! Would recommend to anyone. Only thing to be aware of is that the appartment is on the top floor so you do have to carry your luggage up a few flights of stairs. Appartment was clean and well-stocked. In-home laundry was a plus! VERY COMFORTABLE BEDS
My friend and I stayed in this lovely unit on the third floor for 7 days.
What a great location! Central to everything and easy access to public transportation for anywhere you want to go in San Francisco. This unit is located on Mason St between Jackson on the south and Pacific on the north. As you stand at the entrance the view of the water on both sides immediately puts a smile on your face.
We were supplied with the local bus cards i.e. clipper cards which made getting around the city very easy. The units are wonderful~ clean, spacious, and comfortable- great beds, plenty of storage for clothes and personal items. I really appreciated the WIFI . Home –away from home. Totally loved returning to our unit at the end of a busy day. Climbing the stairs was a little challenging but it is San Francisco after all!
When we stayed the building was under renovation and so the entrance and common area had not been upgraded. It currently does not reflect the fresh look of the units
Mike was very courteous, helpful and went the extra mile to ensure that we were well taken care of. Totally appreciated his warm reception and help getting us back to the airport.
I would definitely recommend to others. It is a wonderful alternative to a hotel.
I totally enjoyed my stay.
I stayed here for two back-to-back weekends and it was great. The building itself and the entryway is old and not yet renovated. It is at the top of the 4th floor with no elevator so not good for elderly or disabled. However, the apartment itself was like new, great views, clean, and very comfortable. Mike was very helpful and extremely accommodating. The location is perfect (on the cable car route, halfway between Fisherman's Wharf and Union Square.) Use of the transit card was invaluable. The two cards saved me about $40-$60 per day in transportation costs for the bus and cable car. Don't miss the Cable Car museum at the top of the hill - very interesting. It was so much better than staying in a hotel as I felt more like a resident than a tourist. I hope to stay here again when I am in town.
Our family of 4 (2 girls ages 5 and 7) stayed here 5 days and LOVED it. Renovation is as advertised, fresh/new/upgraded everything (and great sheets/mattress too). The apartment itself is lovely, however you need to look past the somewhat tired entry and common spaces. PLEASE NOTE: this is a 3rd floor walk up. This is San Francisco - embrace the exercise. Bonus though, you will have a view (albeit small) of the Bay Bridge. ALSO NOTE: parking is for a small car and skinny driver. We had a Ford Escape, and had plenty of depth, but just enough width to park and squeeeeeeze a fit adult out the door. Having lived in San Francisco previously, we found this amusing and would take parking comedy over no parking any day. The unit is on Mason between Pacific and Jackson, on the trolly line (not a noise issue from 3rd floor), wedged in between Nob Hill, Russian Hill and Chinatown. Easiest walk was 1 or 2 blocks 'downhill' to Chinatown proper (Powell, Stockton). Trolly was a great convenience to hit any/all other destinations. Note: Clipper cards good for discounts on ferries too. In all, we loved the unit and would stay there again. Thanks!
