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 San Francisco

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.

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!

A San Francisco Treat

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 9 days and what a relief it was to have this clean, well kept apartment waiting on us at the end of the day. Unit is in a good location, close to public transportation and a nice market (Mayflower) down a block for groceries. The pictures are representative of the unit. The apartment was clean and in order upon arrival with a very nice welcome basket. Kitchen is well equipped for all your cooking needs should you decide to stay in a night or two. Bathroom a bit a bit on the small side but doable. The outdoor courtyard was the biggest asset for us. We sat out there in the mornings for coffee to start our day and in the evenings to end our day. It was so nice to be able to outside just the two of us.

Can't say enough about the operator of the unit, Massy. I've been a VRBO'er for awhile and she was by far one of the best from the standpoint of making sure check-in/check-out went well, accessibility, communication and professionalism. That treatment goes a long way to us renters. Thanks!

There's a lot to like about this rather roomy studio in the city. I recommend.

Great place to stay in SF!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect central location for walking to many of SF's attractions and neighborhoods. In case you don't want to walk back, you can always take the bus or tram which stops nearby.

The apartment itself was spacious, nice, clean and very well equipped. Just like on the fotos.

Massy was very attentive, she checked up on us before the check-in and always answered our questions very quickly. Check-in/out were very efficient. The welcome basket was very good, thank you!

We would definitely stay here again!
