About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1994

Why The Owner 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.

Charming room

  • 4 of 5

This is a charming and cosy little apartment. It has plenty of space for a couple and the court yard is a lovely bonus. The kitchen was very handy for making breakfast before we headed out on any early starts. Being at the back of the building you could not hear any street noise (although we did unfortunately have some road works around the cor a couple of nights we were there which was a little annoying). The room is on the bottom floor under the stairs so you often hear people going up an down. But this did not really bother us. The bathroom was a little tired but clean. The location is pretty good but as the listing says be prepared to do some walking which we love. The host was great. This was a last minute booking and Massy was very responsive and helpful. Access was easy and she let us store our bags when we got there before check in.

My only negative was the bed. It's rather old I think and sags in the middle so that my husband and I kept rolling into each other.

Wonderful Accomodations and Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo is very comfortable, stylish and clean, equipped with everything you need. French doors open on to your very own private courtyard, which was so relaxing. Condo location is perfect! There are quaint markets and great restaurants in walking distance, as well as Union Square and China Town. Two blocks to the cable car stop. You are literally right in the middle of everything! Popular area, so we felt very safe walking to dinner in the evenings. Would definitely recommend to my friends!

Comfortable With Elegance

  • 5 of 5

I was instantly transformed back to the glamor associated with the San Francisco of years ago when I walked in the door of this beautiful flat. The décor, furniture arrangement, and patio garden convey a sense of elegance, spaciousness, and harmony.

The location of the flat is convenient to Union Square, Chinatown, and the Financial District. There is a bus line one half block away and cab service is almost instantaneous. There are small restaurants nearby and a wonderful small market in the next block across the street with fresh produce, a meat and fish counter, and a deli for us who enjoy cooking and eating in.

I was fortunate in having good weather when I was in San Francisco and was able to have my morning coffee and an evening glass of wine on the patio while I admired the beautiful flowers. The kitchen was well equipped for my cooking needs and I was able to eat dinner outside several times. Needless to say, I am looking forward to returning.

Close to everything

  • 5 of 5

The studio was close to my business appointments and many of the SF landmarks I wanted to visit. I enjoyed the stay and the owner made the entire stay convenient and comfortable. I stay in hotels often and this studio arrangement was far better. Thanks Steven for the hospitality.
