About the property

Coziest One Bedroom Apartment On Russian Hill

If you look at a map of the San Francisco peninsula, we are in the center of it. Walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf, North Beach, Chinatown, Union Square, the Marina, the Financial District, and more. This is a small refuge in the heart of the city, steps away from the Cable Car and the Crooked Street.

While the apartment is small it has everything you will need to enjoy a comfortable stay. A fully equipped kitchen, cozy seating area with small dining space and comfortably sized bath. You will be happy to have such a cozy place to return to after a day of adventures in the city.

About Sabrina Litton

We're happy to share our little 'piece of the rock' in San Francisco with you. We're two married professionals from New York and Hawaii who met here and fell in love with SF.

Why Sabrina Litton chose Russian Hill

Russian Hill is just about as central as you can get in San Francisco. Our house is close to public transportation, and walking distance to much of the town.

Lovely Apartment on a STEEP Hill!

  • 5 of 5

What an experience! This beautiful home is located on a very steep hill... so steep our Uber driver warned us to not put our luggage down on its wheels or it would roll down the hill. We loved it! The Apartment itself had a great layout with a small dining/living area (helped for some work we had to get done), kitchen, bedroom, large closet & small bathroom (although small, it worked perfectly!) The Unit doesn't have AC which was never an issue because whenever we were home it was chilly. Internet connection was great which was very important to us because of our jobs. Location was amazing! We were very close to Lombard Street, Little Italy, Fisherman's Wharf...everything! We only took the Uber when we were exhausted after a long day of walking & exploring. Would totally recommend this Vrbo & would definitely visit again.

Perfect Central Location in San Fran!

  • 5 of 5

The tagline "small apartment with a huge location" could not be more spot-on! Yes, the apartment is small, but it has everything you need and more! The owners supply quite a few odds and ends to make your stay more comfortable (shampoo, conditioner, iron & board, kitchen necessities, tourism books, etc).

We spent 3 nights here, mainly sleeping -- the rest of the time was taking advantage of the city, which was VERY EASY due to the location of this apartment. Be aware, it's located on one of the steepest streets, but don't let that deter you. We could walk to all piers in about 15-20 mins; drive to Golden Gate Park & Crissy Field in 20 mins. Close to numerous restaurants (of all kinds) and public transportation (cable cars, Lyft, Uber). Such a wonderful location, exactly what we were looking for to enjoy the city!

Parking on the street is available (and on other streets nearby), but know it can be hit or miss (we had lots of luck!). Great price (on point with hotels that were further than this apartment to the piers and activity)!

Sabrina (and Michael) are great owners who responded quickly whenever we had questions. What a great place, we'd recommend it to anyone traveling to San Fran! Thanks!

Location, location, location!

  • 4 of 5

This location was perfect for us. Our daughter literally lives 4 blocks away and it was super convenient. We loved the easy access to Polk St., Morth Beach and all of Russian Hill. We were blue to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Sabrina was responsive and everything went without a hitch getting in, keys, etc. It was SO quiet at night we could hardly believe we were in a city. The bathroom was teeny tiny and the sleeping area hard to walk around. But we enjoyed our stay and will come back due to the great location for our needs.

Location was absolutely perfect!!!

  • 4 of 5

Upon other reviews, I decided to stay here. We couldn't have been more pleased. Like everyone else said---location is amazing! 3 streets away from Lombard and about a 10 min walk to Fishermans Wharf. (Downhill) The street is very steep. When I say very, I mean the steepest street I have ever been on in my life! Ha ha! But we made it work!

I loved how she had everything we needed there: shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hair dryer, iron, dishes (although we never cooked)

The place is tiny---but we didn't stay here Except to sleep. The only thing I would say is it got really cold at night and I couldn't figure out the plug in heater. Other than that---great experience! Would definitely stay here again!!!!

Teensy tiny but fantastic location!

  • 4 of 5

After going on the "love tour" we didn't really need anything more. We walked and Ubered $5 everywhere. Couldn't have asked for a better location and vacation! Although the living area is the same size as the walk in closet, it was by far adequate. Would stay again!

Great location for a couple!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is ideal for the couple looking to spend their time out enjoying San Francisco. The location is prime for visiting many of the city's attractions, and the variety of restaurants within walking distance can't be beat. Spanish tapas, authentic Italian pizza, and fresh breakfast burritos were only a handful of the delicious restaurants we were able to walk to from the apartment. The apartment was small, as advertised, but centered in a beautiful neighborhood and fit our needs for a long weekend in the city.
