The unit is a 1BR apartment currently. There is a 2nd bedroom but we use it for storage while we are away. Our home is nestled half way up Russian Hill and has tons of old SF charm. Breathtaking views of the bay and Alcatraz from the kitchen and private roof top terrace. Modern kitchen and bathroom. 1 block from cable cars, 1 block from Winding road.
1 block from the Crooked street!
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.
The real treat is the private roof deck w views of Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf, North Beach, Coit tower and more. Sit up on a sunny deck and enjoy your morning breakfast or a glass of wine with the perfect SF view. (Maybe both at the same time? :))
It's a really quiet street, next door to the beautiful and original SF Art Institute which you can walk into and see some cool local art.
Walking distance to Fort Mason, Russian Hill, Fisherman's Wharf, Marina, North Beach, China town. You're also only 1 block from the famed SF Hyde St cable car - take it down Hyde St to downtown SF.
Cable TV + Sports package
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.
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.
Russian Hill is peaceful, with breathtaking views. At times it's like there are views in every direction (go up to the basketball court on Hyde and Lombard).
You feel a bit above the chaos of the rest of the city. Great restaurants and bars, but also very close to driving or riding over the bridge and heading up to Marin, Sonoma or Healdsburg.
The hills are a pain in the butt sometimes, but also a matter of pride. Eventually you just do them without thinking about it, but you need to live here a while.
All over! Cable cars 2 blocks east and west of the house. Both go straight downtown. 19 on Polk St.
No smoking indoors, no pets, no loud music after 10pm.
Please feel free to use the guitar/ukulele/piano and record player but be careful with it!
Help yourself to food snacks condiments, whatever you need.
Please rinse dishes before putting in the dish washer.
