Perfect location for everything San Fran!

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a lovely area of North Beach. It’s clean and has everything you might need. Within walking distance to all the attractions: Chinatown, the Piers, Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz...I would most certainly stay here again! All the recommendations on the chalk board were excellent!

Inviting and clean place in a fantastic location! Perfect for our family of five to visit the city!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our trip to San Francisco and this property was perfect for our family of five! The owners made our stay very easy and inviting. We were able to walk everywhere. There are several great restaurants within walking distance. We loved the North Beach area - close to China Town, the Wharf, Coit Tower, Ferry Building, Union Square, etc. We would definitely recommend this property to our family and friends. I also felt like it was a good value compared to area hotels that could accommodate the same number of people. You were close to everything but it was quiet and residential which we really appreciated! We also really appreciated the owner's recommendations for restaurants, etc. on the chalk door in the kitchen. I took a photo of it the first day and we referenced it many times during our visit! Thanks for your hospitality!

Perfect for a family of four!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location! We didn’t realize that North Beach is also Little Italy, and the restaurants around here are great! The infamous “Mams” is at your doorstep, and it’s the hottest breakfast place in the city. People are lined up ALL day, but since it’s so close you can get in line before they open and get right in. All of the attractions of Fisherman’s Wharf is a close walk away as well. The apartment itself is small, yes, but everything in the city is., so no big deal. It was perfect for a family of four or five.

Great gateway in North Beach

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place, cute and comfortable. I was surprised at how private and quiet it was. We walked everywhere, Coit Tower, City Lights Bookstore, Fishman’s Wharf and Ghirardelli Square. Lots of places near by for food and drink.

San Franciso Vacation

  • 4 of 5

This property was in a perfect location everything within walking distance, beautiful home. Please make sure to visit Mama's it is so worth the wait in line. I loved staying at this home. The only thing I would improve is the bathroom it is pretty small, but it is manageable. Other than that the kitchen is amazing and the home makes you feel like your at home nicely decorated and well stocked appliances. Oh, LOL just no iron so make sure to bring an iron or have your clothes pressed at the cleaners just down the street. I would highly recommend this rental especially to a couple that just wants to be close to everything, this is your spot. You have the laundry mat on one corner a small mom and pop grocery store on the next corner and those guys are so sweet and you have Mama's Restaurant on the other corner and the beautiful St Peter and Paul Church around the corner, a dog park and many great restaurants and shops all surrounding you. You are about a quick 10 minute walk from Pier 39 and about 16 minute walk from the Fisherman's Wharf where on Saturday morning from 8am - 2 pm you can go and enjoy the Farmer's Market. Thank you Amy and Calvin for renting your beautiful home to us we really enjoyed our time in San Francisco. We hope to come back again next year.
