About this listing
2 BR 1.5 BA ground floor condo (with back yard and patio!) in ultra-cool Russian Hill / Nob Hill area - very safe neighborhood. 3-4 block radius packed with great breakfast cafes, restaurants, bars, shops, drug stores, 1 block to cable car. Relatively quiet - one block off of main strip (Polk St.).
Very centrally located one block from popular and trendy Polk St. One block to Hyde St. cable car, 3 blocks to CA St. cable car. Trader Joe's 4 blocks. Whole Foods 5 blocks. Easy to catch a taxi anywhere on Polk St., no need to call. Not really walking distance to BART, $9 cab ride. Condo is spacious by SF standards - good for 1-4 people (both beds Queen-size). Sorry - no pets, no smoking. Repeat - no pets, no smoking!
Come and go as you please - you will have key to front door - no bldg lobby. Parking: I no longer have a parking space - sorry - it is now a construction site. Parking is difficult in SF, but worst case there are pay garages within a few blocks, and I can help with street parking strategy.
Apartment fully furnished, Wi-Fi, cable TV, washer/dryer, iron, hair dryer, kitchen has everything. Also note that the apt. is full of my belongings (I normally live here); sorry there is no closet space.
You will have entire condo to yourself, and if I am in town, I can easily stop by for help, advice, recommendations, etc. I have lived here 14 years and know the city well - can recommend restaurants, sites, events, music, museums, directions, fun things to do, etc. with lots of tips on avoiding traffic and crowds.
No more than 4 guests please.
Bill's house was absolutely wonderful, in the beautiful Nob Hill neighborhood, and in proximity to some of our favorite restaurants/hangouts in San Francisco. Bill was a great host and checked on us to ensure that everything was to our liking, although was never intrusive. We would love to stay at this truly San Franciscan house next time we are in the city.
Great location. Very clean and very well looked after. Loved the decor and size of property. Host was very helpful!
We were thrilled with our first Airbnb experience. Mr Stockton was incredibly helpful knowledgable and hid advice was dead on re food, parking and directions. His home was perfect, with location and facilities wonderful. We felt like natives going to shop eat and sightsee. Will recommend very highly and look forward to repeating.
Bill is a very nice host. The place, overall, is quite nice - real SF style! The location, of course is ideal for visitors with lots of public transportation options, which is key b/c of the lack of parking in this hot area. Just make sure that if you are planning to sleep two people in the inside bedroom to check in with the host and that he has fixed the queen bed box spring. The queen bed in the middle bedroom caved in the middle a bit, which was an issued b/c I have a sensitive back. Otherwise the location is fantastic, the place is charming, the outside seating is a nice bonus and everything else is great. To Bill's credit, he was responsive to our feedback. Thanks Bill!
It was a pleasure to meet Bill and its very nice flat. We stay a cople of days and everything was perfect. Room, garden, BBQ... Close to several stores, bars and restaurants and bus stations. Bill was very kind with us and give us some tips to enjoy the city. Thanks and have a nice trip to SF in Bill´s House.
This is a great condo, very comfortable and cozy. Nob Hill is a dynamic and eclectic neighborhood and the location is perfect for walking to great restaurants and shops. Public transportation and cabs are easy to catch for visiting distant parts of the city. Bill is a wonderful host, knowledgeable, helpful and friendly, but not obtrusive.
Our host was very flexible with our check in time. He was accommodating and ready to help with any trip planning ideas we might need. The house was in a great location. It's very close to public transportation. There were great coffee shops and cute wine bars in the neighborhood.
