If you tell us a little bit about yourself and what you are looking to do while in San Francisco, we would love to provide personalized guidance on what to do on your visit and how to get around. SF has so much to offer and there are quite unique experiences if you know the local scene.
* All prices are subject to change without notice prior to booking.
The building doesn't have any shared space or amenities, however, you will have full access to everything inside the apartment.
Interaction with Guests
Since you will be booking the entire apartment, we won't be on site during your stay. However, we do meet up with you to check you in, and we make ourselves very available via phone and email if you encounter any problems. On occasion, due to work schedules, or traveling, we may not be the ones to meet up for the check-in, but we have trusted friends who will meet you in our place.
The apartment is centrally located in Nob Hill., a short walk (less than 1mile) from:
* China Town
* Grace Cathedral
* Union Square
* Polk St. bars, restaurants and nightlife
* Lafayette Park (free outdoor tennis)
* Lombard St.
A slightly further walk (1-2 miles) to the following locations:
* North Beach
* China Town
* Fisherman's Wharf
* Ferry Building
* Financial District
The best thing about the neighborhood is it is safe to walk around at night, unlike some neighborhoods so close to downtown and many bus lines and cable car lines within 1 min.
The apartment is close to multiple forms of public transportation due to its central location within the city.
If you have specific questions about how to get around, please send us an inquiry, and we are happy to provide guidance about how best to get around given your specific requirements.
Other Things to Note
As a bonus, we include two passes for unlimited rides on the Muni around the city with your booking. Muni is the public bus system in the city of San Francisco. This doesn't include BART, but it does include the cable cars. Which is particularly great since you are right by two cable car lines - the Hyde car takes you to Ghirardelli Square and the California car takes you downtown with iconic views of the city.
Please: No smoking (not even out the window). No pets. No shoes inside (cities are dirty, but I want to create a clean sanctuary for you)
Keep the noise down at night. I've never gotten complaints from my neighbor, but this is an apartment, not a hotel.
Clean the kitchen appliances shortly after you use them.
Do not host events/parties/ or overnights in the apartment.
Otherwise, consider me a friend, and just treat my home accordingly... :)
This comfortable couch also serves as an additional bed once you take off the pillows (twin-size)
The Host did not meet us but she made sure someone was right there to let us in and show us the ropes. The apartment was quite spacious and well laid out. The location is on the edge of Nob Hill very close to some great areas and only a walk to most of the great spots in the city. We were provided with transportation passes and good information about the neighborhood.
On the down side for us was the building itself is a bit tired, common areas not great, noises and odors are prevalent but do not penetrate the apartment. The noise of people overhead is loud and they got rolling early like 5:30 am. Of course we are not city dwellers so we were probably a little more sensitive to this fact. The neighborhood itself is right on the edge of sketchy and we encountered several characters that made us nervous although we were not really threatened and the building is very secure.
Good hosts, great location. Cata and Sinha are attentive hosts. The apartment had everything as advertised and all amenities were working. The location is extremely convenient. There is a Trader Joes and Whole Foods in walking distance and the trolley take you right to town. Easy walk to financial district and Market Street.
Pros: Great location, a lot was in walking distance including the tram. Really close to a good Trader Joes to pick up snacks. Two streets away from Polk Street which was brilliant because it has a great range of breakfast/dinner/drink spots.neighbourhood also felt safe. House was very clean and spacious.
Shower was amazing, powerful and hot! Lots of handy essentials left out for us which was a nice touch.
Older building (maybe this is the norm in SF tho- I'm not sure)
Noise was an issue for us. Floor above had a baby that woke in the night and also a lot of walking around on wooden floors with what sounded like high heels on(!). No massive parties or anything but enough to wake you.
Perfect place to stay in the city. Close to everything. The place was clean and perfect for 2 people. The bed was king size and very comfortable. The room also had dark shades and made it easy to sleep. Cata greeted us upon arrival and a gave great suggestions for the city. She also provided passes for the tran, awesome! I will be returning.
The only down side was we could hear the neighbors above us walking around......starting very early in the morning.
