About This Listing
Thanks for checking out my awesome and spacious Nob Hill studio apartment.
Experience San Francisco like the most fortunate locals do, and enjoy your stay in a charming and excellently placed open cul-de-sac directly across the street from the Ritz Carlton Hotel and within two blocks of other world class hotels including the famous Fairmont, Huntington, Mark Hopkins and Stanford Court Hotels. The California Street cable car line literally stops right at the corner, and the Powell-Hyde cable car stops just a block away. Historic Chinatown, North Beach, Union Square and the Financial District are all just steps away.
If you’re here for business, the Moscone Convention Center is an easy 15 minute downhill walk through Union Square away; alternatively the 30/45 bus lines stop a block away and can take you there in about the same amount of time.
I just finished setting everything up in this apartment home so everything is brand new and impeccably clean, and it’s in a classic San Francisco building with tons of traditional character and charm. It’s a very roomy space for the solo business traveller or can serve as a really comfortable urban retreat for the sightseeing couple, with a small sofa that can serve as an additional sleeping space for a third guest if necessary. The unit is in the back of the building and faces a small backyard garden away from the street, so it is very private and quiet despite its central city location. My place is fully furnished with all the comforts of home, including fresh linens and towels.
Indulge in some of the City’s most fabulous dining and exciting nightlife, all within a couple blocks’ reach! Being surrounded by so many delicious and affordable dining options (truly impressive feasts can be found in nearby Chinatown or North Beach for less than it would cost to venture to the grocery store and prepare a home cooked meal) I rarely find myself eating at home, but if you choose to the kitchen features full cooking amenities with basic cookware and dishes/flatware, microwave and coffee maker.
• Entire fully furnished apartment home for your stay
• Quiet garden view suite in classic elevator building
• Fresh linens and towels
• Toiletries and hairdryer provided, just bring your toothbrush!
• High speed cable internet with Wi-Fi
• Flat screen TV with premium HD cable service
• Full/double size bed
• Memory foam mattress
• Table and chairs
• Huge walk-in closet and dresser space to unpack your clothes
• Full kitchen with basic cookware, dishes and flatware
• Coin-op laundry in building
• Numerous laundromats and dry-cleaners within a couple blocks’ radius
• Numerous convenience stores within a couple blocks’ radius
Since this is my own second home and I’d like to stay here for a while, I’d like to kindly ask you to be mindful of my neighbors and apartment during your stay—NO parties, pets or smoking will be tolerated inside my home, so if these are your intentions please look elsewhere.
I personally love the convenience and exciting location of this spectacular Nob Hill retreat, and I hope for the opportunity to share the experience with you during your visit to San Francisco. I’m a third generation San Franciscan, and during your stay I’ll gladly provide personalized recommendations toward the best in local dining and activities—all the best stuff that you won’t find in guidebooks—to truly enrich your visit and leave your heart in San Francisco!
If this sounds like an ideal arrangement for you, please contact me so we could get to know each other and discuss availability/logistics; tell me a little about yourself and what’s sparked your visit to SF. I look forward to meeting and hosting you during your visit.
•NO smoking inside my apartment or anywhere on building property.
•NO pets; sorry, they’re not allowed in the building.
•NO parties in the apartment.
Please keep the noise levels low while you’re back home at my place, especially in the evenings; most of my neighbors in the building are professionals who have to wake up very early in the morning for work.
Thank you very much for respecting my house rules!
Austin was such a great host and the place is perfectly located in SF. I arrived a little late and Austin was very easy to work with. The place is clean and had everything I needed for my 3 day work trip. I was able to walk to work in the SOMA region and had several choices for food. I would go back.
Austin was always very accommodating. Since he couldn't meet with us when we arrived he arranged everything for us and he took care of all the details. Even though we didn't request a baby cot (our fault) he still sorted things out for us at the last minute. Throughout our stay when we had some issues (not related with the apartment) he was always available to help and always replied on time. He even dropped by to visit and check that everything is good.
The apartment is in a very good location, quiet and family friendly. Yet it is just a stone throw away from China town and just a few minutes away from San Francisco's central points such as Union Square (5 mins), Ferry building / port of San Francisco (15 minutes), Fishermans Wharf / Pier 39(20 minutes) etc. The place itself is exactly what you need; spacious bathroom, walk in wardrobe, comfy bed, very fast internet connection, satellite tv and more.
Couldn't ask for a better place and if I ever go back to San Francisco, will definitely book this apartment again.
This apartament goes with the denomination of the 3 L's Location Location Location: nice location just walking distance of major hotel brands wich gives you the guarantee and trust that the surrounding are safe and clean, it is located up in the hill and it is at the gate of Chinatown, and 4 blocks from union square, this is the main feature of this listings Location!!
The place itself it is what you need, a nice comfy bed, nice wardrobe and spacious bathroom, kitchen with the basic, satellite and great internet speed.
The host: From the beginning Austin was very helpful, actually I had to modify the dates of arrivals and this was no issue for him, at the arrival he was waiting for me and everything work as a clock!
Thank you Austin
Great place! Everything I needed, nothing I didn't. Austin made me feel welcome right away. The studio is comfortable and secure, the neighborhood is really interesting, all in all I couldn't be happier with my experience.
Eu e minha esposa tivemos uma ótima estadia no estúdio do Austin. Tudo ocorreu perfeitamente, ele foi muito atencioso aos detalhes e também nos deu dicas essenciais sobre a cidade.
Quando precisei ligar para tirar dúvidas ele foi receptivo e bastante prestativo.
O apartamento é básico mas possui tudo o que você pode precisar em uma viagem, é muito confortável e com excelente localização.
Se houver outra oportunidade voltarei com certeza!
This apartment was a great place and location. We had some fantastic days in the city. Austin was very helpful, easy to get in touch with and a great host.

About the Host, Austin
What's up Airbnb'ers,
I'm a third generation San Franciscan, and I happily returned to this great city in 2011 after nine years living/working/studying in New York City, Hong Kong and Southern California and as much travelling/backpacking that I could afford around China, Southeast Asia and Western Europe. My day job is in the finance industry, and I'm a huge fan of travelling, eating delicious local food, snowboarding, golf and poker, among many other hobbies.
I love the philosophy behind Airbnb's peer-to-peer home-sharing model, and the Airbnb experience has been a lot of fun so far.
I'm excited to serve as your host during your visit to San Francisco, and I hope your stay here empowers you to experience all the magic this city has to offer. I also look forward to meeting many of you and maybe even experiencing life in your city some day as well!
