Property description

Three charming, furnished, one-bedroom flats located in picturesque 1906 Edwardian home.


Great location right at the top of Nob Hill. Close to restaurants, shopping on Union Square, China Town, Fisherman's Wharf, Cable Cars, super easy for public transportation. Leave your car at home!

I am currently only renting for 30 day periods as I have a pending application for a variance is in front of the Planning Department in San Francisco. Monthly rentals have a different application process and much higher security deposit. The monthly rates differ for each flat.

Normally my prices are as follows:

2nd and top floors include parking with some vehicle type restrictions.

First-floor walk up is French-style with a lovely remodeled kitchen and oak parquet floors throughout, light and airy, blue and white theme.

Second-floor flat is traditional, slightly larger with a work alcove, bay windows, and antique fir floors. Colors mostly Burgandy and beige. Bedroom blue and beige.

The dramatic, top-floor flat is elegant in beige and black (traditional/contemporary) with a large, private, newly rebuilt roof deck with wrought iron railing and penthouse room with superb views of the city, Coit Tower, Pyramid Building and Bay Bridge. Prints from the chalcography in Paris, oils by Marylin Sommers, and a lovely collection of vintage and new lithographs.

All flats have, quiet, light and airy bedrooms facing the back of the property with queen-size beds, double-size sofa beds in the living rooms, and twin cots, fireplaces, wood floors, well-equipped kitchens, and laundry access .Parking is available in the building with the rental of the top and second floor flats subject to some vehicle type restrictions.

Property is in the best Nob Hill location, one-half block to Grace Cathedral, less than two blocks to the Huntington, Mark Hopkins, and Fairmont Hotels. Walk or cable car to the financial district, Union Square, China town or North Beach. Located on a quiet, one block, long street (Pleasant Street) convenient to many restaurants, neighborhood markets, dry cleaners, cable car stops, and bus lines.

Due to height of the roof deck, first and second floor flats are best for families with children. 'San Francisco with Children' books, children's books, and games are in these units.

Please, no wedding receptions, corporate entertaining, or large celebrations or gatherings in the building. Please note that should you rent this property you agree with the property rental rules: no smoking inside/no pets allowed on the premises.

Please note that availability on the rental calendar may mean that only one of the flats is available. Since we are not able to set up 3 calendars we have only indicated when all 3 flats are taken. My calendar is usually up to date.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: After spending my adult years living on a sheep farmlett in Sebastopol and raising my family and coming often to San Francisco got the travel bug and found an opportunity for change so change happened. Have travelled often to Argentina, a random place where strange things always happen. Enjoy the wonderful, interesting international people who come annually to Argentina to immerse themselves in the energetic activities, diverse landscape, and for me the tango and Folkdance culture. I have always loved dancing. Now that my children are super responsible adults, it has been possible to pursue dance on a more intense level. Since a bit of college in Spain, living in a Spanish speaking country had been my desire. I was invited in January 2009 to BsAs to help teach Lindy Hop, specifically Balboa, at a Lindy Hop Festival. Went tango dancing one night and got completely hooked during a tanda of Calo, a composer of romantic tangos. A tanda is a group of 3-4 songs with some type of commonality that one dances with one partner. Tango either speaks to you or not, what we dance is not show tango that people usually think of but a more personal and intimate dance connection. It is a pleasure to be able to live a bit of a gypsy lifestyle and travel to cities where I also dance, managing the rentals all day and tango dancing all night, literally. Sleep sometimes suffers. The past two years though, must say, have spent more time in California, have computer will travel. Love to cook so every rental kitchen is fully equipped. Hiking, skiing, decorating, design work and music are also my passions. Read a lot more before tango but still find time for at least a book a month. Suggestions are welcome! In order to keep things running smoothly I spend time in each unit to make sure that all is in good repair. Many return guests are now friends which is rewarding.

Why the Owner Chose Nob Hill, San Francisco, CA, USA:
When looking for this property I wanted something with a view to share with others who come to visit San Francisco. When I found this building I fell in love with the location, central but on a quaint and quiet street, the sound of the cable cars and the thoughtful design of the spaces. The property has been given historical preservation status by the city of San Francisco being a prime example of typical construction for multi-unit housing around the turn of the century. Each owner has updated it a bit, fortunately, always in keeping with the vintage feel and with an appreciation for the history of the area. It is my belief that I have owned this property longer than any of the previous owners. Have always loved entertaining and this is a way to share my love for San Francisco with others and make sure that they have the optimum housing experience during their visit.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Staying in one of my apartments is much more like living in San Francisco. There is less pressure and hassle than a standard hotel and one gets to know a neighborhood better shopping in the local mini markets and stores. The location is the very best in San Francisco for getting around with or without a car and we are very central to public transportation and walking distance to most tourist destinations. I recommend that you skip the car and just rent for a day or two when you want to explore outside the city. Over the years many rental clients have become good friends and return each year to the same apartment or house. Being the host to these return guests is the most rewarding part of my job. I have also enjoyed hosting many opera singers, artists, nice families that want to have a more homey experience in San Francisco, families where a family member is facing a health challenge and needs a secure homey environment, couples going through fertility treatments, ice skating rink managers in for a season, local San Franciscans displaced due to remodels or repair work on their own homes as well as many of my neighbors parents and family members, rather a second bedroom for the neighborhood. I take the responsibility of my visitors vacation/family time seriously.
