Our peaceful bright top floor apartment has a modern spacious kitchen, a large living room w/ Full cable tv (sports HBO etc), couch, blankets. Master bedroom has 3 large windows looking out onto a shady courtyard and an enormous Sequoia tree. Through the branches you can see the bay.

We will communicate with you as much as you need and quickly over email and phone, but won't be at the apartment during this time. We have a helper host who can meet you and support you.

Public transport is easy from our house with cable cars and muni a block away. As always, we think uber/Lyft is best if you're on vacation but a cable car ride is fun also.

Guest access

Everything except for the hard liquor, though you may have a drop within reason :)

Interaction with guests

As much as needed over email and phone, won't be at the apartment during this time.

All was perfect : The appartement is even more beautiful than it appears in the photos. It is very quiet and confortable. We didn't seen Leandra, but we had contact by mail, it was very simple.

My husband and I came here for five days in late July for our "babymoon" and we couldn't have been more pleased. The home was clean, comfortable and with magnificent views of the city and Alcatraz. Leandra was so sweet to leave a few SF staples upon arrival (wine, sweets, cheese, bread and cheese). There were absolutely no issues and she made herself readily available. It is in Russian hill, so close to everything, and curvy Lombard just around the corner. I would highly recommend to anyone interested in visiting the beautiful city of San Francisco.

We were a family of 4 including 2 teenage kids staying at Marc’s apartment for 1 week during the summer. We felt very welcome from the beginning as we had received a thorough description of the apartment as well as hints and tips of the neighborhood. The apartment was very clean at arrival and we received furthermore a welcome package including wine, snacks, cheese and juice. We haven´t tried that before on Airbnb! During our stay our host contacted us to hear if we had run in to problems, had inquiries or just wanted some advice on what to see during our stay. The apartment has an amazing rooftop with incredible view of Alcatraz and the harbour area. In general the apartment appears newly renovated in a style which appealed to us (as Scandinavians). The apartment is situated on a quiet street close to the very touristed pier area but very closed to excellent dining opportunities in Little Italy. We will definitely recommend the apartment.

Coming to a new city is always exciting and you always have a lot of questions and ambitions about the trip. Leandra was incredibly forthcoming and responsive to all my emails. Her kindness stretched as far as delicious things to eat and drink when I arrived, with the offer to "help myself to anything else in the fridge and cupboards" which I thought was incredibly generous. It was simple to get into the apartment using the door code and it's so well located in a really lovely, smart part of the city, with easy access to everywhere else. She gave me some great advice and tips and subsequently, my trip was amazing. I loved every minute I spent in the apartment - it has a great feel about it with lovely light flowing through; in fact, sometimes I was reluctant to go out, I just wanted to enjoy the space and the roof terrace more! I slept well too, the bed was very comfortable. If I return to SF, I will return to this apartment, without a doubt. The rooftop terrace is the 'piéce de résistance' overlooking the city and the Wharf, where you can make out all the boats flying free, amazing buildings and the city lights twinkling at night. It was lovely.

Our first time visiting San Francisco, we spent 5 nights and had a great experience! The property is in a great location, easy walk to Fishermans Wharf or to catch a Street car heading downtown. The condo was very clean and comfortable; the rooftop patio was a great way to end the night. Marc was very accommodating and left us a list of his favourite spots to visit. Had a wonderful time and would recommend for anyone!
