About Lois

A native San Franciscan, born at St. Joseph's Hospital, raised in the Sunset, attended San Francisco State and Golden Gate Universities. As a teenager in the sixties, attended my fair share of rock concerts at the Fillmore and Winterland. Froze my tail off many a night watching Willie Mays and the Giants at Candlestick Park. I've lived on Nob Hill, Russian Hill and out in the Marina. Worked as a bartender at Ghirardelli Square, worked my way through school as a construction laborer in the Financial District and in the nineties, had my real estate office in the Flood Building at Powell and Market St. A lifelong sailor, I still love looking at the city skyline from SF Bay as much as I did the first time I saw it. I hope you enjoy my city.

Lois purchased this condo in 1994

Why Lois chose Downtown

You can walk anywhere with ease. Stay off those infernal on and off tour buses! Get out and engage! Walk, walk, walk my friends. There is so much to see and do and so little time. Then come back to your sanctuary to rest and recharge so you can do it again tomorrow.

What makes this condo unique

Ground floor, easy access. Unique garden patio, fresh air and tranquility (I often leave the French doors open). It's in the rear of the building so it is extremely quiet. The walking score if off the charts.

Fantastic stay in San Fransisco

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my son for a week in San Fransisco and we loved it. Louis is an excellent host who is really doing his best to give the guest a fantastic time. The flat has everything one needs with a fully equipped kitchen. The location is perfect, close to the centre and has lot s of restaurants in the neighborhood. Highly recommend this place.

Absolutely Charming!

  • 4 of 5

This was my 4th time in San Francisco in the past 2.5 years, but the first time I have stayed in this apartment. The apartment is exactly as displayed in the photos with even more surprises. Not only was the apartment spotless and charming, and in a wonderful location, but the outside garden was just lovely. However, the rooftop garden was a fantastic bonus. Even though the outside temperatures were a bit cool, the rooftop was a magnificent place to get some sun while enjoying a tranquil environment to read.

The kitchen was well stocked which is important to me as I, typically, entertain nightly up to 4 guests.

I had one concern when I first arrived, which was promptly responded to by the owners.

My only negative comment is the density of both the mattress and all pillows. I quickly adapted to the mattress, but never adapted to the pillows. I would suggest that one or two more pillows be purchased that provide a much softer place to lay one's head.

If you plan on using SF's wonderful public transportation system, I would suggest ordering a Clipper Pass prior to your visit. It was extremely easy for me to do and, because I am a senior, I could load the pass at the nearby Walgreens for half the typical fare. Being from Massachusetts, I am unaccustomed to a system which works so easily.

All in all, this is a lovely apartment in a terrific city.

Peaceful, beautifully decorated condo

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I felt completely at home the moment we walked into the condo. It was nicer than the pictures portray. Every morning we enjoyed coffee in the private garden patio. Very quiet throughout the day. Hard to believe we were in the heart of a busy city. We will definitely tell our friends about this little gem!

Wonderful place to stay. It is a gem in the middle of the city.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Charming Nob Hill Garden Studio for 8 days, 4 vacation and 4 work. The apartment far exceeded our expectations and it had every amenity and more. The next time I am in San Francisco or have any family or friends coming here I will recommend they stay here.

Our host Massy was wonderful and an excellent communicator. Accessing the apartment was very easy and Massy even contacted us after we arrived to make sure that everything was okay and to see if we needed anything else. The apartment was spotlessly clean.

If you are looking for a romantic getaway or a great place to stay when traveling on business I recommend the Nob Hill Garden Studio.

Clean, quiet and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is roomy and bright even though it's on the first floor, with plenty of light coming from the patio windows. Because it's at the back of the building, street noise is zero. The patio is almost as big as the apartment itself, so it adds an expansive feel. The furnishings were in great shape and the kitchen appliances and utensils are modern and comprehensive. Management of the apartment was supportive and attentive throughout the rental process and the stay itself. Nice job all around for a great SF stay!
