This charming North Beach flat is at the foot of Coit Tower. It is located in a quiet residential area, yet only walking distance to many local restaurants and sites. You will definitely feel like a local during your stay in this area and flat.
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!

Description was entirely accurate. A better view was Alcatraz from the tv room down the street
Some small maintence on cupboard doors in the kitchen would be good for the future
L'appartement correspond exactement à ce qui est décrit. La terrasse est petite et il y a beaucoup de vent mais c'est très agréale d'y passer un peu de temps après une journée de marche (ou de vélo) dans les rues pour y admirer le coucher de soleil! et voir les lumières de la ville s'allumer. On est très bien situé à 10 min à pieds des quai (alcatraz ou pier 39) et à... 30 min toujours à pied de market street en passant par des rues sympas! sinon pour les moins "sportifs" il y a des bus partout.
Bref: merci Joël car nous avons pu découvrir la ville avec nos 2 ados qui se sont même payés le luxe de prendre chacun un lit (il y a 2 chambres mais aussi un clic clac !)
C'était notre première expérience Airbnb et j'avais un peu de craintes mais Joël a répondu très rapidement par mail à mes (nombreuses) questions!!
This property is located a short walk from the Coit Tower and as such is perfectly positioned to explore San Francisco. A 10-15 minute walk will get you to Fisherman's Wharf, The Exploratorium, China Town and many other areas. A shorter walk of maybe 5 minutes will get you on the tram system. So all-in-all a perfect location.
We quickly felt at home in the property. The kitchen/dining room are well-equipped. The separate living area has comfortable chairs and I particularly enjoyed the comfy window seat offering views over Alcatraz. The two double bedrooms worked well for my wife and I, with out 2 young children. From the back of the kitchen are wooden stairs up to a roof terrace offering stunning 360 degree views of the city, including Golden Gate Bridge. Apparently this area is shared with others, but we didn't see anyone else there. It provided a great location for an early evening glass of wine, to soak up the city from up-high.
We found Joel to be friendly, helpful and responsive. He was very quick to provide a few kitchen items that we needed for food preparation and so I can't fault him for trying to accommodate his guests.
We would happily stay at Joel's property again on a future trip to San Francisco.
This was a comfortable flat in a brilliant location; so central to all the key areas of the city. Really great spot to rest up between days out in the city.
Joel was quick to respond and was always available when ihad questions. the apartment was adorable, clean and had an amazing view of the water and city. there is a trader joes nearby and the bart is a quick walk away.
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!

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.
