Studio on Nob/Russian Hill Border

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

The Space

Good sized studio on the border of Nob Hill and Russian Hill. Queen sized bed with additional couch. A large closet is available for use and the apartment includes a private full bath with a bathtub and shower. The kitchen is small but is more than sufficient for a small group and includes pots, pans, dishes, etc. if you're looking to make your own meals. The apartment includes free wifi, netflix, digital cable, and hbo streaming via a wall mounted HDTV.

The apartment is directly on Polk St. which features many restaurants, bars, and shops. Since it's right in the heart of the city there is noise both during the day and at night. With the windows shut it's pretty minimal. Very close (walking distance) to Lombard St., Fisherman's Wharf, North Beach, Marina District, and Union Square. Easy Access to Golden Gate Bridge, Mission District and Golden Gate Park.

City Car Share and Zip Car lots are located a block and 3 blocks away respectively.

Regarding parking, the area around the apartment has 2 hour metered parking during the day everyday from 9pm until 6pm (except for Sundays) and it can be tough to find a spot (more so on weekdays/weeknights than weekends). Alternatively, there is fairly unrestricted (restricted for street cleaning and between 4pm and 6pm on weekdays only) parking on Bay St. 9 blocks away (10-15 minute walk).

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I stayed at Devon's place for a 10 days. The place is great, its clean, and has everything you need, but it is typical old house style in that it is a little rough around the edges. The location is pretty much perfect for going anywhere and being able to walk out your door for a bite, a coffee shop, or a drink. The only draw back is the loud traffic noise at night. After a night or two I got used to it and just slept through it.
    Devon made me feel he was available at anytime and checkin/checkout was a breeze.

  • We were very impressed by the location and comfort of this apartment for our purposes. It was a little noisy but Devon advised us of this before we went so it was not a problem.
    When we go back to San Francisco we will look for availability with
    Devon first before looking anywhere else.

  • Devon was a great host. He was easy to reach and the apartment was exactly as described. I would definitely stay at his apartment the next time I am in SF!

  • This was a great find in SF. I stayed for 5 days during a conference and found the location to be incredible. The apartment was clean, comfortable, and perfect as a home base for exploring the city. I spent a lot of time in the Russian / Nob Hill area and found some great restaurants, markets, and bars to enjoy all within a short walking distance to the apartment. I would highly recommend staying here and the next time I'm in SF, I'll stay here again.

  • Had a great stay at Devon's apartment and he was super easy to correspond with. The place is a nice size and I found it to be in a very central location in terms of other neighborhoods and amenities. The bed was very comfortable and the place gets a lot of natural light. I would definitely stay here again.

  • Nice studio in a safe and friendly area. Many good restaurants nearby. Studio was clean and Devon was a very friendly host and very willing to help. The noisiness was way less than I expected and indeed - like many say - the studio is actually bigger than it seems from the picture. Bed was comfortable. I did miss a nice coffee machine. The only downside of this area is that it's located on a hill, so walking to another area requires some condition. Nevertheless, I would rent Devon's studio a second time.

    October 2013
  • In addition to being very nice with us, Devon was very helpful and very accomodating with check in&out times.
    The studio is perfectly located between every intersesting places in San Francisco and is a very convenient and comfortable place to stay. I would recommend Devon and his apartment to anyone travelling to this city!

  • We had a great stay at Devon's place. He was a very accommodating host who allowed us to check in and check out when it suited our schedule. He was quick to respond to our requests. And on top of all that, he has a great studio apartment. It was perfectly situated for all our needs. We walked most everywhere and felt very safe. Very nicely styled place and he had access to wifi and apple tv. It was our home away from home and we would definitely stay there again.

    September 2013
  • I booked Devon's apartment for one of our out-of-town guests attending a week-long meeting in San Francisco. He imagined living in that kind of apartment if he were single and lived and worked in SF, calling the apartment, "fun." The location was great and convenient to food sources, self-service laundry, and public transportation. The apartment was clean and served perfectly as a temporary home-base. Communication with Devon was quick and friendly. Thanks, Devon!

  • Devon was such an incredible host. We arrived early and wanted to leave late and he was very accomodating. The apartment was exactly like the pictures and was incredibly clean. Devon was great in responding to emails and even texted me the day we checked in to make sure everything went well! I think the location of his apartment is great. It's a busy street but if you close the windows it's incredibly quiet. I would absolutely stay here again. We had a great visit.
