Classic 2 bedroom Edwardian era apartment in the heart of North Beach with awesome views.
Comfortable Living area with Futon, Smart TV and Samsung bluetooth sound bar (not shown)
The property is a recently renovated 2 bedroom flat in Telegraph Hill/North Beach area. It's located at a quiet cul-de-sac on top of the Vallejo Steps and is just 1.5 blocks away from the heart of North Beach where all the wonderful cafes and restaurants are located. It's a 15-minute walk to downtown financial district and a 10-minute walk to Coit Tower. It's a 10-minute bus ride or a 20-minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf, and the same to Union Square. Chinatown is just 3 blocks away. The location could not be any better!
Our neighbor, Dennis, is the "Mayor" of the Vallejo Steps. He and his dog, Abby, will be happy to answer any questions you may have about pretty much anything SF related.
The cul-de-sac in front of our building has great view of downtown SF Financial District, water and the Bay Bridge and is a common route for visitors walking the city. There is also a wonderful and well maintained garden on the Vallejo Steps. The famous Telegraph Hill parrots visit our apartment around 3-4pm in the afternoon every day. You won't miss them because you will hear them first! We provide birdseed and they will eat out of your hand!
Now here is a brief description of our apartment:
The living room and 2nd bedroom have great view of the downtown Financial District
The Living room has a new Full futon sofa that can comfortably accommodate 2 people.
The bedroom has a queen platform bed and a blackout curtain. It's very quiet so it will allow you a good night sleep after a fun day exploring San Francisco!
The 2nd bedroom has a Queen sized bed. Small but super cozy.
The bathroom has a rain shower head that will provide you a great showering experience and wash your tiredness away!
The kitchen is fully equipped for you to cook gourmet meals if you are not in the mood to explore all the wonderful restaurants that North Beach has to offer. We love our brand new LG fridge! We hope you will enjoy your cooking experience in our kitchen. New TV in Kitchen so you can cook and watch FoodTV. Bonus!
All bedding and towels provided for every person / bed and then some.
The apartment has a brand new LG washer and dryer that are fantastic and easy to operate. We love these well built machines! If you don't feel like doing the laundry yourself, there are wash and fold services just 1.5 blocks away on Grant Ave.
We hope you will enjoy your stay at our apartment, leave your heart in San Francisco and come back again soon!
Dogs accepted at our discretion. Please inquire. However, if there is any question about whether your dog is truly "quiet" or "well mannered", please be honest and don't bring your beastie if you think it might be an issue. SF is dense so people tend to notice these things. Also, be aware that there are occasional neighborhood off leash dogs at our end of the cul de sac out for walks. If you bring your dog, just be aware of that.
Washer Dryer, Satellite TV, Full Kitchen.
Interaction with Guests
I stay with my significant other in the neighborhood while you are renting, though i am frequently on the property as we are planning to renovate. I will say hi if i see you!
North Beach is awesome. Grant St. is like a mini Bourbon St. and the food options between Little Italy and Chinatown are excellent. The Ferry Building with its Farmer's Market on Thursday and Saturday is very close. The famous Fisherman's Wharf is a 10 minute walk.
Columbus and Stockton are major transit routes. Uber, Sidecar, Lyft, Flywheel and Summon give you access to amazing private transport options.
Other Things to Note
Due to heavy travel we appreciate a sparse lifestyle and keep most if not all owner stuff out of your way. It'll feel like "your" pad in SF!
Steep hills and stairs define North Beach / Telegraph Hill. Bring some good shoes and be prepared to use them!
After a lot of research, we settled on SebaMed bath and shower products for our guests. We think they represent the highest quality / value combination and though they aren't "cheap" we think its important to treat people right.
We are Amazon Fresh members. If you are arriving late with a family or for any other reason, would like the kitchen to be pre-stocked, we can handle that. Many of our guests like to have the basics on hand for their stay so please don't hesitate to ask.
I would highly recommend using Uber to travel around the city. The service / experience is beyond excellent and many steps above our yellow cab service. If you are heading to the airport and need an Uber and don't have the app, I'm happy to order one for you (you can leave me cash in the apt).
This is a shared building with 4 other owners. Though we own this flat, we want to be sure and respect our co-owners and neighbors. The best way to do that is to keep the volume, in all respects, to a minimum and don't host numerous people to the property. If you have any questions about any of this, please call us first to clear anything up. Thanks!
I and my colleagues had a great time at Tommy's apartment. It matched the listing perfectly and was exactly as described, it was even bigger than I expected. The location is in scenic and safe neighborhood, with easy access to everything. There are a few hills leading to it, but the views are definitely worth it. There were lots of restaurants and bars close by as well as excellent transportation links. The apartment had everything we needed for longer stay, including good kitchen equipment and amenities. Also, having a washing machine and dryer in the apartment was very convenient. Tommy was checking with me often to make sure I got everything I need. I would definitely recommend Tommy's place to stay!

The apartment is really well located, great area, great view. It is located on the top of the hill, so it is not so easy to get there walking (it's worth). We are dog lovers and we knew that the apartment was pet friendly, but there is a strong scent of dog in the house. Therefore be aware of it if you are not dog lovers. Overall the experience was good.
This beautiful flat was the perfect spot to call home in San Francisco. The view and location were amazing. We enjoyed all our favorite parts of the city without needing to move our car. The flat itself had ideal, comfortable, clean updated accomodations with San Francisco character. Tommy's description and instructions were helpful and spot on. We had a great stay--thank you!
Really appreciated Tommy's notes before arrival and quick response to txt messages during our stay. Everything lived up to the description online. A fantastic apartment with views and amenities to match. Next door neighbour Dennis - and the docile Abby, his dog - made us feel right at home. Loved hanging out in North Beach; couldn't go past Caffe Trieste for coffee and Mo's on Grant for terrific breakfasts. The stairs and steepness of the hill can be a bit of a challenge if, like me, you're nursing an old sports injury...but well worth the effort once you're 'home'! Wish we could have stayed longer!
