Secluded & Unique Get-Away w/ Views

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Bay St, San Francisco, CA 94109, United States

The Space

The apartment is clean and newly renovated. The brand-new bathroom features heated floors, ample storage space and a large shower (shower head & rain shower). The galley-style kitchen has a full-size fridge, gas stove, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, pots & pans, knives, cooking & eating utensils, and some spices – everything you need to make a snack or a full meal. The bedroom window and balcony have bay views (Berkeley to Alcatraz). Two closets provide hanging and shelf space. The front south-facing balcony porch looks over the yard. Furnishings are a mixture of new and vintage, providing a genuine at-home environment.

The property is located in the Aquatic Park of Russian Hill, just 2 blocks from the bay (Hyde Street Pier). Walk only a few blocks to popular destinations like Fisherman's Wharf, Ghirardelli Square, Hyde Street Pier, North Beach (Little Italy), Russian Hill, and the Embarcadero. The famous San Francisco cable car stops ½ block from the property and takes you up Russian Hill, through Nob Hill, down to Union Square and Market Street (down-town shopping area). Walk one block to bus lines that take you East, West, and South through the City, to many of San Francisco's great attractions.

This is a place to feel at home when on vacation – a place you will want to kick-off your shoes after a full day of site seeing or if you feel like staying in one day. Walk to an amazing selection of restaurants or pick up groceries a few blocks away for a home cooked meal (Trader Joe's & Safeway). We made this place comfortable like home, we think you will agree.

We believe our property provides a special and unique vacation or business travel experience for those looking for a quiet, clean, comfortable and special place to stay. If you are traveling with your well-behaved, house-trained dog, please let us know and we may be able to accommodate (restrictions on breed apply). Thank you for your interest and we hope to see you in San Francisco!

  • The apartment was great -- clean, well equipped and bright. The location was also very convenient yet in a quiet neighbourhood. Tamara's family met us at the apartment even though we arrived in the city late and everything was in working order in the apartment. It was also very easy to find street parking overnight around the apartment and you just have to move your car every 2 hours during the day. It would have been a 5-star experience but for the renovation that is going on in the house next door. We were woken up by the banging and drilling every morning (weekdays) from 7:45am. So, if you are looking to sleep in, this may not be the perfect choice for you until the renovations are completed. We would definitely stay here again (hopefully by our next visit the renovations will be completed).

  • Tamara and her family have an amazing apartment in a fantastic position to explore San Francisco. All the directions, tips and ideas were easy to use and very useful. We used the cable car, muni line and the bart system with ease. The apartment has a lovely view of the bay and we could watch all the waterfront activity. Lev met us and gave us all the extra information that we needed. He was prompt, helpful and courteous. Thank you we had a wonderful time in SF and enjoyed using your place. If we ever returned we would definitely return.

  • Tamara's apartment was more than we could have hoped for! Clean and spacious it actually felt like home. The view of the bay was fantastic and the apartment was well equipped with the basic needs - the kitchen was lovely to cook in. Lev who met us at the apartment was very good and recommended many things for us to do around town. The apartment is only a short 5 - 10 min walk to the Wharf. Close to shops, restaurants, public transport including the cable car line. Would definitely stay here again - no doubt about it!

  • This was our first air bnb experience and it was perfect. The apartment was very clean and so quiet. The kitchen was very well equipped for cooking, the bed was comfy and it was great having wifi to keep in touch with family back in Australia. The cable car and bus were just around the corner and very easy access to downtown. We got a three day pass for $21 dollars. The view of the harbour was great watching ships come and go. We had a perfect dinner at seven hills restaurant and walked back to the apartment afterwards via ice cream at swensens. If we are back in San Francisco I would certainly stay in this lovely apartment again. Thanks so much Tamara and family

  • Great apartment with plenty of space in an excellent location. Fisherman's wharf is less than 10 minute walk and there is the F tram that takes you to Union Square. The cable car is only 5 minute walk at Powell/Mason St. I recommend getting the 3 day pass for $21. The apartment itself is very quiet, clean and nicely furbished. Thanks Tamara and Liev for letting us stay in your apartment.

  • This apartment is gorgeous and beautifully furnished. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay and found the location lovely and quiet but still very close to fisherman's wharf. It is a stones throw from a cable car stop. The kitchen is well equipped and the shower is great! Tamara's family were lovely and very helpful in providing information about the area. We would definitely stay again and have even recommended the apartment to family.
