Located in the heart of the city, Twin Peaks is a breath-taking neighborhood that rises above the rest (literally!). Occupying two of San Francisco’s highest summits, Twin Peaks offers quiet seclusion from the city below. The neighborhood’s high altitude location may remove it from hurried urban activity, but the steep descent from its hilltops is made worth it by Twin Peaks’ sweeping San Francisco vistas.See places to stay Save this neighborhood

The neighborhood was really nice and safe and has some great views of the city. We couldn't have asked for anything more, and will definitely stay there next time we travel west."

This project for Airbnb was a great opportunity to tread both the beaten and unbeaten paths of a city he feels privileged to call home.
