About Kim

We currently live in San Francisco and purchased this condo for the 'grandparents' to use a couple months out of the year.

Having grown up in the Bay Area, we are very knowledgable about

San Francisco and the surrounding area.

Kim purchased this condo in 2012

Why Kim chose San Francisco

Stunning bay view 'Mini' penthouse in Pacific Heights within steps to the popular Union Street for trendy restuarants and shopping. Covered parking and elevator to top floor unit. Beautifully furnished and remodelled kitchen and bath. Balcony with outdoor heater (perfect for viewing America's Cup!).

What makes this condo unique

Views, views, views with every possible convenience in the unit and outside the unit (neighborhood).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Safely back in rainy Oregon this evening, Kim (we stayed in Ashland last night.) Thanks for all your good help with the condo, your excellent instructions and detail and our time there. It was so enjoyable and the weather was just great (even those 4 or 5 over-hot unusual days for the bay area.) I am sure we will be coming back in the future and hope to grab an open window of time sometime next year.

We were visiting San Francisco for our first grandchild's birth. This wonderful apartment was near where my daughter and son in law live and it allowed us to have our own city experience while being available to them. From a few days before till a few weeks after, we enjoyed everything about what this apartment offered. Location, well appointed kitchen and lovely decor including a very comfortable mattress! The outside deck offered a memorable view each am and pm. Thanks to the owner for making this time the best!!!!! She remained helpful and available throughout our stay.

Fantasic location with unbeatable views

  • 5 of 5

Relax, you can stop searching now - you've found the perfect place. I rented this condo for about six weeks while I was in the process of relocating to San Francisco for work. Now that I'm familiar with SF housing I can truly appreciate everything this condo has to offer.

Location is fantastic with million dollars views of the bay and Golden Gate Bridge, but you're also just a few steps from Union street so you get the views without first having to scale a mountain. The building has an elevator which makes it easy to reach your top floor unit - another luxury that's hard to find in SF. Public transportation and Chariot commuter shuttle stops are extremely close as are several great restaurants.

The owner has provided everything you'll need during your stay. I was impressed with the quality and completeness of the furnishings. The photos represent the condo well but the things you don't see are all high quality too; everything from the dishware, cookware, and knives have been selected with an eye for quality. It's also pretty difficult to find a place that has a dishwasher, disposal, and washer/dryer all in unit. Outside patio - check. Garage parking included - check.

I'm sure I missed a few things that should be mentioned but you should have enough to feel comfortable booking your stay - Enjoy!

Fantastic location in SF

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place to be - to get to anywhere easily - with plenty of shops and restaurants in the nearby areas.

A very short walk to the bus stop with the #45 bus taking you right to the heart of the city.

Some noise from the two bars that are near the condo, but the bedroom windows are double paned and block it well.

This is our 2nd time to stay here for a month each time and we recommend it.

This Cow Hollow apartment is a little piece of heaven! There is nothing about the apartment not to LOVE - the location, the view, the furnishings, the extra personal touches and TLC from both Kim and Dana. They even special-ordered gorgeous weather for the entire month of April! Thank you, Kim and Dana, for a wonderful respite from "normal" life. We look forward to spending another month with you again next year.

Great location - excellent place

  • 5 of 5

Very well appointed condo with fantastic views of the bay and the GG Bridge. Plenty of space for two, everything you need, comfortable furnishings, nice big shower, clean and modern. The indoor parking is a definite plus. Location is perfect for dining and shopping and the bus to downtown is right on the corner.

The only "negative" - and not much of one - is the rowdy crowd in the Blue Light bar which is in front of the condo. It can get a bit noisy on dollar taco night on Tuesdays, and a bit on the weekends, but with the double pane windows in the bedroom the noise is shut out and not a problem at all.

The owner Kim, and Dana the personal concierge service owner who takes care of checking in guests and other things for Kim, are both very responsive and helpful.

Will definitely look forward to staying here again when we need a month long rental in SF.
