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!
When you book with us, you will get very detailed arrival, departure, transportation, and neighborhood information emailed to you! So there's no guessing - you will be very prepared for your trip to SF and our apartment!

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.
*****STAR airbandb-beautiful, clean, modern yet cozy flat. We had a blast in San Francisco and we were close to everything. Loved Tamara's place, it was great! We would definitely recommend it to anyone!

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!
Schöne, saubere und ruhige Zimmer in einem grünen Innenhof.
Gute Lage in North Beach. Kann s nur empfehlen.
The Yurovsky Family provided very clear information that in hindsight I wish we would have read more carefully. We had the unpleasant experience of having our rental car towed at a cost of more than $560 as a result of our failure to take note of restricted parking on the north side of Bay Street between the hours of 4-6 pm weekdays. We were warned in the materials provided by the family ahead of time, but in the rush of things, neglected to notice. The unit was very clean, in an excellent location and well-equipped. We would suggest that hotel-style shampoos, hair conditioner and additional shower soap be provided when there are two or more in residence for more than two days. Thank you for a delightful location to enjoy one of our most favorite cities in the world!
The apartment was great, clean and modern. Awesome views and location. Highly recommended!!! 1/2 block from cable car, and easy access to all fishermans warf attractions
The apartment is in a very handy location without being noisy. It is super clean and the WiFi is really good. We arrived late and Lev greeted us at very short notice and took the time to walk us through the apartment. I would recommend this place to anyone. Thanks.
Great apartment! We loved staying here and the location. Really appreciated the apartment manual with neighbourhood recommendations. Tamara, Lev and Tanya were lovely and quick to respond. Would definitely recommend staying here and we will if we're in San Francisco again.
Thanks. We had a lovely time in SF based from this apartment. Plenty of natural light, views of the bay and great location. Plenty of info about local services, good working WiFi and a kitchen where we actually felt inclined to cook a proper meal. Would certainly rent this or another of your properties next time we are in town.
