About Randy Wertz

Hello, so glad that you are interested in our apartment. I am an attorney, and work just a few blocks away, in the Financial District. We have lived and worked in the San Francisco area for over 40 years, so are very familiar with restaurants, places of interest, day trips, walking tours, etc. Our home is on the Peninsula, but we love San Francisco so decided to find a place that we and our friends could enjoy.

Randy Wertz purchased this condo in 2013

Why Randy Wertz chose Nob Hill

We looked for several years until we found a spot that was close to the Financial District for work, and conveniently located for all that San Francisco offers. We love walking, and this location is fantastic, I believe we have a 90+ Walking Score. San Francisco is so compact, we often leave for a walk in the morning, intending to take a short hike, but spend the whole day exploring new streets and neighborhoods

What makes this condo unique

Fantastic views of the Bay, the Bridge lights, Coit Tower and the City. We love the sunrises and sunsets. Walking distance to Financial District, Union Square shopping, North Beach restaurants/bars, Chinatown, Ferry Building, Union & Taylor & Broadway Street shops & Restaurants, Fisherman's Wharf.

Such a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for about 10 days. It is so close to everything you would want to see, plus the cable car's stop is almost at the front door. Other public transportation is readily available as well.

The view is amazing! Especially from the rooftop deck. Whether foggy or clear, it was beautiful.

The condo is quiet. Well, except for the convenient cable car. But that stops at a decent hour at night. Bring earplugs if you think it might bother you. We got used to it quickly. It's part of the experience! And the view.... Amazing.

I would certainly like to come back and if we do, we will contact the owners to see if it is available. Thanks Susan and Randy for sharing your home!

Great spot to take in all of San Francisco

  • 4 of 5

This condo was a great fit for our family of 5. We really appreciated the ability to come home after a day touring the city with enough space to relax and unwind. Having the large kitchen and eating areas was perfect and being able to do laundry was great! Loved having the cable car museum so close although it is noisy at night until 11 or so with the cable car activity just outside the condo. The views are amazing and the rooftop deck was a bonus. Great location for walking to lots of top attractions too.

Wonderful view, great location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home. We were six people and the apartment was perfect for us. We were able to walk everywhere and did much of our grocery shopping in close-by Trader Joe's and China Town. In the evenings we ejoyed a glass of wine looking at the beautiful view either from the roof deck or from the living room. The beds were comfortable and made for good nights even though the street can get noisy at times. I highly recommend this place and would definitely come back.

Great Location and Incredible View

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week in this very comfortable home. I was initially concerned about the stairs but they are no big deal and we are in our 60s. The house had everything we needed which was a pleasure. The beds were comfy and nobody had problems sleeping even with the street and cable car noise. After a day of sightseeing, we absolutely loved coming back to relax to such a wonderful view of the Bay and City. There were a couple of places close by to get coffee and have a nice dinner. Gallery Cafe had good coffee and breakfast items and Mason Pacific had delicious dinner entrees. The only improvement recommendation we had was the seating on the rooftop deck, it needs more than a picnic table. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it for a San Fancisco visit. Thanks Randy for checking in on us to make sure everything was okay, I really appreciate your hospitality!

Beautiful home in the heart of the city...

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect city home for our family of five to enjoy a week holiday. Home is beautifully decorated, new everything, beds and linens are lovely and comfortable. The view out the bay window is dreamy morning, noon, and night. We enjoyed coffee and cocktails on deck. Walked to just about anywhere in town. I am an expert on VRBO and have rented many homes. This will go down as our favorite for sure... Thank you Randy for making your home ours and for being so helpful. Michelle
