This is the top unit of a 4 unit building which makes it light and sunny. There are lots of stairs (no elevator) so feel free to load up on your pasta. Nonna climbed them for years!

Loved this airbnb! Was exactly as in photos, easy to coordinate with Joel of how to get in. Though we never met Joel, he was always available by phone or text and helped answer a lot of questions. You can't beat the location, the rooms were spacious and clean. There are so many amazing cafes, shops and restaurants nearby and there was lots of information in the apartment about touristy things to do. The rooftop deck, though older, was spectacular and we enjoyed it multiple times. If you are shy of hills, this probably isn't the place for you, but then if you are shy of hills, San Fran probably isn't the place for you. Very well organized stay and we would go back in a second!
Joel's flat was ideal for a recent trip to San Francisco for my son and I. The location on Telegraph Hill was perfect, an easy downhill walk to the restaurants of North Beach as well as the piers on the waterfront. The flat itself is comfortable and well-equipped for a short visit, with a cozy seating area in the front room. The rooftop deck offers fantastic views, but the lack of comfortable seating options limits the amount of time you want to spend there. However, this is probably understandable given that it seems to be shared with other units, though we didn't encounter anyone else in the building during our 4 day stay. Well suited for 2-3 people, and I would definitely recommend this flat to others!
Our Stay was absolutely amazing. Flat was great an well equiped the view from the rooftop was fantastic. We didn´t see joel at all. He gave us all information that we needed via mail an sms. Also the infos on the kitchentable were very helpful. Neighboorhood was quiet with all necessary things ( grocery bars restaurant) within a 3 Minutes walk
We want to go back to SF as soon as possible.
O apartamento era exatamente como descrito, local muito bom, perto de várias atrações em S Francisco, as quais você poderá ir a pé. Há estacionamento há cerca de 600m do local, 30 US a diária, preço comum em SF, onde estacionar na rua é quase impossível, mesmo nos fins de semana.
O Joel deixou todas as instruções e sugestões de restaurantes e atrações próximas, além de ficar a disposição para qualquer emergência.
Merci beaucoup Joel, l'appartement est très bien situé. Nous avons adoré. San Francisco est une très belle ville et le paysage vue de la terrasse sur le toit est impressionnant.
Joel's place is absolutely amazing. Not only is it comfortable and everything you need, it's also ideally located on a quiet block, it's easily walkable to everything North Beach and the view from the balcony is enough to make a New Yorker think very very hard about their life choices. Joel was easily reachable, gracious, and extremely accommodating, even when we locked ourselves out, like dunces.
Tolle Lage der (kleinen) Wohnung, zu Fuss alles gut erreichbar. Wohnung selbst etwas abgenutzt (Sofa hat Flecken, Küchenschränke locker...), eine Auffrischung wäre gut. Dachterrasse sehr klein (2x2m), dafür perfekter Ausblick.

About the Host, Joel
I'm a San Francisco native. I love my city and still have many childhood friends in North Beach. I enjoy walking from the flat down to pick up focaccia from Liguria Bakery, having lunch at Joe's, or just relaxing with a coffee at one of the cafes. I never tire of the local restaurants and still haven't tried them all. I also enjoy wine tasting in the Napa Valley or heading out to Stinson Beach for a day. I'd be happy to answer questions about touring San Francisco or the Bay Area and hope you have a wonderful time in this beautiful city.
