The Space

We put a huge discount in over Christmas for any visitors willing to look after out kittens. They are two brothers, about 4 months old. Very sweet, playful, and easy. So if you love cats and want a drastically reduced place of your own for the holidays, this is the deal for you.

We have beautiful 1 bedroom flat in posh Nob Hill (a few blocks above Union Square) with it's own private patio and secret garden, a truly rare find in the city! Located at the back of a historic art deco building from 1928, we get little to no street noise, and all of our windows look out on to greenery creating a lovely sense of privacy and calm.

The location of this flat is unbeatable! Right in the heart of downtown, and just a few blocks above Union Square. Walk down and get a coffee. Take either of TWO cable-cars lines that cross within a BLOCK from our door.

The flat is large for SF, with a nice comfy couch and a full sized bed so you could easily have 2-4 people stay. Fully equipped kitchen, laundry in building and full wireless capabilities for your internetting.

Also, we have a very large flat screen TV with Netflix and Hulu as well as a DVD library in the 300 range, all very pleasant after a long day/night in the city. No cable television, sorry.

A large bookshelf means there is plenty of opportunity to have quiet read in the garden and a cup of tea when you want to relax after a long day of city exploring.

Neighborhood is fantastic for a visitor to our beautiful city! We are 3 blocks from Union Square, 2 blocks to the famous cable car that takes you to North Beach and the Wharf, walking distance to both major train systems (muni and bart) as well as 4 blocks from the famous Geary St pub crawl area which is crammed with lots of great bars and lounges from upscale to fabulously divey. Happy to (email hidden) to the neiborhood for those interested.

Safety: To be safe, we will want to pass the keys off to you personally and show you the place if we can (we'll make other arrangements if that's not possible). Please make sure the same person we've spoken with is the same person who meets us. Also, account verifications are much appreciated.

Happy Hunting!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • This was a wonderfully located, beautifully appointed apartment with extremely gracious hosts. Our two-night stay was perfect in every way and the apartment and garden were even lovelier than in the photos. Highly recommended, especially for first-time visitors to San Francisco because of the vibrant and accessible "Tendernob" location.

  • Charming place right next to Union Square, with a fantastic garden. We spent most of our time while at the flat out there, as it allowed for me to read in a super peaceful place (and my SO to draw plenty of art inspiration from). Anything you could want is at your fingertips within walking distance, with her calling it the perfect introduction to San Francisco.

    I can't recommend this place enough, and it was an excellent first Airbnb experience!

  • A wonderful apartment on Nob Hill with a garden, that is frequented by a humingbird. The cat is adorable. The apartment is a true oasis in San Francisco. We lived it.

  • Thomas est cool, son appart aussi. Je recommande vivement. A savoir les couchages 3 et 4 sont des lits de camps.

  • Pros:
    1) Quiet!! Even with the windows open you couldn't hear too much.
    2) Thomas was very responsive and easy to deal with.
    3) I enjoyed having an outdoor space with greenery way more than I thought I would even.
    4) It had all the amenities: good bed, internet, xbox with netflix/amazon/etc, good shower, great kitchen.
    5) The cat was easy, chill, & cute (coming from a non-cat person).
    1) The heater goes on automatically in the whole building even when it is warm already, so between that & the cat the windows and doors must be left open, so I got a bunch of bug bites :(

    Response from Thomas:

    Oh dear. I am sorry to hear about the bug bites. Yes, the building next door was cited for having a bit of water out lately, leading to an unusual incidence of unusual mosquitoes. Next time I'll break habit and teach you to turn the heaters off (which is actually possible, but poses a risk to the off-turner that we usually try to avoid). Glad you had such a nice time otherwise!

  • Thomas and Lindsay's place is centrally located and very comfortable. The apartment is as described, with lovely furnishings and that delightful courtyard garden. They are extremely accommodating hosts, leaving us a list of places to eat etc. We very much enjoyed the company of their sweet cat also.

  • Thomas was very responsive and easy to coordinate with, especially considering our short notice. The apartment is spacious and charming, and the garden really made it a haven from the bustle of San Francisco. Definitely recommended.

  • This was the perfect way to settle into san francisco. Located right in the heart of the city, the apartment was lovely. The garden made it extra special and our hosts left us with some great tips for exploring.

We are two producers married happily in San Francisco. I travelled extensively in my early 20s living and working around Europe and Australia before returning home. I like a good laugh, a nice glass or wine and good company more then almost anything. That and movie charades. And presents.
