Property Description:

This listing is for a remodeled 3 bedroom, 2 bath full-floor penthouse flat in the historic Telegraph Hill / North Beach neighborhood. The apartment has breathtaking views of the Bay Bridge and the Bay Lights from the living area and the master bedroom. This is the historic area that you want to stay during your San Francisco holiday. The entire 1909 Edwardian building has just been remodeled, including upgraded plumbing and electrical. The unit has beautiful views of San Francisco Bay, the Embarcadero and the Bay Bridge. The building is located on the slopes of Telegraph Hill near Coit Tower and the Barbary Coast Trail. The building has been featured on the 'Streets of San Francisco' and this iconic block has been in several films such as 'Basic Instinct' and 'The Hulk'. World famous artists and photographers have featured this portion of Montgomery street in their works. Movies, TV shows and commercials are shot here often.

The property features modern and comfortable conveniences, with professionals and business travelers in mind. Although the property is newly remodeled, I have maintained the historic high ceilings, hardwood floors and classic Edwardian facade. The two main bedrooms will have new hotel quality mattresses, linens and bath towels. The newly remodeled kitchen features stainless steel appliances and will be stocked with utensils and cookware for six adults. The third bedroom will be furnished with two twin beds that can be configured together.

The flat also includes: in-unit washer and dryer, high-speed internet (available through a secured WI-FI network, cable television, including On-Demand movies & television is also included. IPod / iPhone speakers are available. The unit also has a room safe so you can secure your personal belongings as you would in a hotel.

Master Bedroom:

Queen Bed
En-Suite Bathroom with Shower
Bay Views

Bedroom 2:

King Bed

Bedroom 3 / Media Room:

2 Twin Beds
40' Flat Screen TV

Since the unit is a 3rd floor penthouse and located on a hill, access for wheelchairs and strollers would be very difficult. No parking is offered with the unit and I don't recommend travelers rent autos during their stay here since San Francisco is a difficult place to find parking. In any case, the property has a Walkscore rating of 100/100 so a car is quite unnecessary.

This is my private unit, so it is not designed to be a boarding house or hostel. I am looking for responsible people that will take good care of the place.

For reservation or property information, please contact me.

VRBO Bear stayed here:

From the moment we entered the apartment, all we could say was “WOW!” This beautiful Telegraph Hill flat provides picture perfect views. The large windows of the main room and master bedroom were open to enjoy every scenic moment. In the early mornings, the world was quiet with the sound of the occasional fog horn in the distance while the sun gently filled the master bedroom. Just as enticing, as the evening sun went down, we would watch the lights on the bridge turn on while sipping a glass of champagne.

The penthouse has been nicely remodeled and tastefully decorated with a balance of up-to-date appliances and conveniences, while still maintaining the historic San Francisco Edwardian charm on the outside. Beautiful hardwood floors shine throughout. There is a nice separation between the master bedroom and the other two large bedrooms. The beds and linens were extremely comfortable. The penthouse is spacious and airy with high ceilings and filled with natural light and plenty of storage. The kitchen had everything we needed. The bathrooms were elegantly renovated and professionally cleaned. The towels were plush and hotel quality.

The location was ideal for us. The walkability to restaurants, cafes, and shopping was a plus to staying in the unit itself. Historic landmarks such as Coit Tower, Embarcadero, Ferry Plaza, and Transamerica Pyramid (just to name a few) surrounded us. When we did require transportation for farther locations, cabs were nearby, easy to hire, and could get us anywhere we needed to go. The home was a relaxing place for us to land after a full day of walking and sightseeing.

The owner, Richard, was very accommodating and helpful. His professionalism was apparent in the entire booking and check in/out process. He was prompt in his replies to my initial inquiry and questions. Richard presented us with an informative email prior to our arrival providing suggestions and recommendations for things to do in the area. I could tell right away I was dealing with a very experienced owner.

It was definitely hard to leave when our vacation ended. Thank you Richard, for hosting us Bears at your lovely apartment!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1950

About the owner: My name is Richard. I am a graduate of the Golden Gate Schools of Law and Business - both located just down the street from the property. I know this unique and diverse city very well. I am happy to answer any questions to make your stay enjoyable. For property and reservation information, please call me at 510-910-0924.

Why the Owner Chose North Beach, San Francisco, CA, USA:
This property is in an amazing location. It is close to downtown, the Embarcadero, Chinatown, North Beach and Russian Hill. I do not suggest travelers attempt to drive or rent a car when staying in san Francisco. When I stay here, I walk or take taxis. Cab fares are comparable to other major cities.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This one-of-a-kind property is located on the slopes of Telegraph Hill, near the Barbary Coast Trail. You can enjoy the view with your significant other The neighborhood offers everything in walking distance... from small convenience stores and cafe's to Michelin two star restaurants like Coi. In the morning, you can easily stroll to the Cafe Trieste or Blue Bottle Cafe at the Ferry Building to pickup a coffee. If you are patient, you can brave the breakfast line at Mama's, across from the park. You can spend the rest of the morning exploring all the landmarks of the neighborhood and boutiques of Grant Avenue. If need be, recharge with a midday slice at Tony's for lunch or a simple gelato in Washington Square Park. In the summer, bring a swimsuit and sunbathe with the other beautiful people. For dinner, you can walk down to Gerald Hirigoyen's Piperade for excellent Basque cuisine. If you still have room, follow that up with a handmade soufflé' from Cafe Jacqueline. Still awake? You can adventure out to world class bars and nightclubs and stumble back whenever you like. San Francisco offers everything for the night owl... you just need to know where to look.
