The Space

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; 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 13 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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We spent 7 night in Bill's apartment. It is located in a super nice area and easy to get to by public transport and walking. Just around the corner is the busy Polk Street, with loads of good restaurants, cafés and bars.
    The place is super spacious, clean and well equipped. Bill provided us with great tips for exploring the city. The patio is a great plus and we were having breakfast almost every morning in the beautiful backyard. We had a hard time leaving this place:-)

  • Bill was great! He was waiting for us when we arrive and showed us around the house and gave us precious hints on what to do in San Fran. The house was very clean and tidy and it's really well located. Thanks!

  • This is a very nice and comfortable condo. the parking is a little tricky, but doable. If you don't have a car it is a great central location for catching a cab. There is so much that is within walking distance from here also. I would definitely stay here again. William is a very nice, and very helpful with suggestions of where to go and eat near the condo.

  • A great apartment in a great location! The beds were comfortable. The backyard is wonderful and you can walk everywhere. It was the perfect place for two adults and two kids. William is a great host. There was even a bottle of wine in the fridge.

  • Four of us had a lovely vacation in Bill Stockton's apartment. It is in the middle of San Francisco, close to restaurants, shopping, beautiful city walks (we did Russian Hill, Telegraph Hill, Nob Hill), museums, the opera/ballet/symphony and much more. Our favorite breakfast place was My My Cafe, just a few blocks away.

    We chose to leave our car parked and walk, cab or transit wherever we wanted to go.

    The neighborhood is quiet, as San Francisco neighborhoods go. People who live in remote rural towns, however, will notice traffic outside at night. The street the apartment is on is lightly used compared to nearby Polk, or Van Ness, several blocks away.

    Bill's Apartment has the convenience of both a full bathroom and a half bath, a kitchen with a great gas stove, and two bedrooms. It is an ideal perch for folks hankering to enjoy city life at its best.

  • We had a great experience in San Fran. Bill was a great host and gave us lots of tips for our stay in San Fran. His place is in such a convenient location and was clean, tidy and very homely.
    We had a wonderful time in San Fran made all the better by not having to stay in a hotel.
    I would definitely recommend Bills place to families and couples travelling through the states
