Thank you for your interest in our apartment. Our six unit building was completely renovated down to the studs a few years ago. Everything is like new. You get the charm of an original 1908 San Francisco walk up with all the modern conveniences like an tank-less water heater and an in-unit washer/dryer. Our unit is on the top (third) floor. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and a bay window with a built in bench from which there are beautiful views of Russian Hill and a quaint little alley reminiscent of the left bank of Paris. The second bedroom has a full size bunk bed and twin trundle that can sleep up to 4 adults and 1 child. All of the bedding, linens, mattresses and pillows are brand new with hypoallergenic and waterproof coverings. Everything is professionally cleaned and sanitized between guests.
The living area features a large comfortable sectional with views of Coit Tower and a full entertainment system that including a 55” flat screen TV with HBO and Showtime, CD player, DVD/Blue Ray player and auxiliary input for iPhone/iPad or other MP3 device. The large, open kitchen has a gas Bertazzoni range and a side-by-side refrigerator with an ice maker. The kitchen is stocked with basic essentials like spices, condiments and coffee so you can make meals at home without having to purchase things that won’t get used up. There is a large counter height dining table on which to enjoy family style meals.
The apartment is equipped with a portacrib, a child's convertible car seat, and stroller if you have a little one.
If you don’t feel like cooking there are literally hundreds of restaurants that will deliver right to the door.
Perhaps the best feature of the apartment is the spectacular private roof deck. With 360 degree views including Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower and the Transamerica Building, you feel like you are on top of the world. The roof deck features a high quality sound system, a dream BBQ, a commercial propane heater and a fire table so you can enjoy the deck even on chilly evenings.
North Beach is one of the best places to stay for a San Francisco vacation. It is walking distance to many of the major tourists attractions like Cable Cars, Fisherman’s Wharf, Pier 39, Ghirardelli Square, Chinatown and Lombard Street. And North Beach is a foodie's dream come true with literally hundreds of restaurants and bars including Michelin star-rated Gary Danko’s and the famous 'Saloon' where Tommy Castro recorded his first album.
If you want to venture out of North Beach there are many options for public transportation. The famous Mason/Powell Cable Car and Muni stops are only 1 block away. The beautiful F-Line - impeccably restored vintage trains from around the world (I love the one from Milan) is 4 blocks away. Cabs are plentiful and easily hailed on the street or by phone.

About the owner: I grew up in the Bay Area and moved to North Beach about six years ago. I own and live in the apartment adjacent to the rental unit. I'm a VP at a high tech silicon valley company. i have a beautiful King Charles Cavalier Spaniel named Lily who is the rock star of North Beach. I love to travel myself and look forward to hosting people in our beautiful city.
Why the Owner Chose North Beach: North Beach is one of the best places to stay San Francisco. It is walking distance to many of the major tourists attractions and it is a foodie's dream come true! North Beach also has a wonderful local culture. Staying in our apartment instead of a tourist hotel down the street you can get the best of both worlds. Right around the corner is Sweeties Art Bar which is generally considered the 'Cheers' of North Beach. The diverse group of regulars range from sailors in their 20's to professionals in their 40's and 50's to retirees. Everyone knows everyone yet newcomers can make friends instantly. There is a list of our other favorite little neighborhood places in the apartment as well.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: The best feature of this apartment is the spectacular roof deck. With 360 views including Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower and the Transamerica Building, you feel like you are on top of the world. Throw in the high quality sound system, a dream BBQ and a glowing fire table and it becomes a little slice of heaven. As you relax with a glass of wine you can hear the clang of cable cars in the distance, the faint bark of sea lions at Pier 39, the forlorn call of the fog horns and the ringing of the church bells at St. Peter and Paul's.
