The Space

A charming apartment in a beautiful neighborhood located between Fisherman's Wharf and Downtown San Francisco. We've got outdoor cafes (love la boulange right downstairs) and we're only blocks from the bay. This is where the beat poets and artists stayed and played. There's TOP SHOPPING and the night life is full of theater, restaurants, bars, clubs, and sound - North Beach is happening and 8 of the 10 'don't miss SF attractions' are within walking distance.

The apartment is a junior one bedroom on the first floor in the heart of North Beach, on the cusp of China Town and Little Italy. The front room/bedroom is an intimate corner room with large windows surrounded by classic SF architecture. It has a super comfy futon with memory foam topper.

The main room has a little kitchenette with fridge, microwave, toaster oven and hot plate. The windows overlook a hopping intersection above cafes, shops and street musicians. THE BATHROOM IS NOT IN THE APARTMENT, we share the four bathrooms that are on this floor. they're cleaned each morning and the closest one is 10 steps from the front door. There's coin laundry available on this floor as well.

Its quite small and can get loud as it's right amongst the action. It's super safe and is walking distance to the Wharf, Marina, Financial District, Washington Square Park and Coit Tower and 2 blocks from the cable car pickup and bus stops.

This is not a party apartment. The manager will call the police if things get rowdy so please continue looking if that's what you want.

Bryan and I spend a lot of time in the country or my sister's in Sausalito so we're generally out of town when the place is rented. We love this neighborhood and welcome conscious, respectful visitors.

More pics to follow, we're experiencing technical difficulties. THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great location!! The apartment is nice and the shared toilets are ok.
    A bit noisy at night, but that's the price to pay to be at this location.
    The host is very friendly and easy to communicate with.

  • Rose and Bryan was super nice and welcoming. Even though they weren't in town when we came they had made arrangements for us to pick up the keys close by. The apatments was cosy and the location was GREAT. We loved sitting in the little room with the streetview, watching people and life outside while having breakfast (email hidden) in the evening. The shared bathrooms in the hallway were ok, but we knew about them before we came.

  • We met briefly with Rose and Brian, but they were very nice. They waited for me even though I arrived very late.
    The location of the flat is just perfect! Its noisy as any other city center, although it didn't bother me.
    Also you have to be ready to share the nathroom with other occupants, it was a first time for me :)
    Anyway, I would definitely come back there again.

  • Although we never met Rose, she was very generous with information, and the key pickup/dropoff were super smooth.
    Great location, within walking distance of many interesting areas, and the café downstairs was great for breakfast - always a plus!
    Lively neighborhood - but we never had a noise problem.
    We were hoping to cook while in the apartment, but unfortunately, this wasn't really an option, although Rose has a microwave oven, a toaster oven and a portable stove.
    The main issue for us was the shared bathrooms - which were often in use when we needed them (typical!) and, to be honest, not always as clean as we would have hoped. As Laura said, you might want to bring a pair of shower shoes/flip flops.

  • Rose was amazing! I ended up getting in earlier than I expected and she made sure that I was able to get access to the apartment. Rose was extremely responsive throughout the whole stay, a complete pleasure to work with. The apartment itself was exactly as listed, clean and cozy! I was worried about having to share the bathroom with the other tenants in the building, but they were well taken care of and I never had a problem finding an open one. The location was spectacular, so many great bars and restaurants within walking distance. I would absolutely stay there again!

  • Awesome Location! Within a mile of the major tourist stops, steps within Chinatown and a block from the North Beach bar scene.The bed is a futon, but the mattress is very comfortable. If you need absolute silence to sleep, the road noise may be a bit much, but if you close the curtains it should be manageable. The apartment was clean and ready when I showed up and the wifi was quick. The shared bathrooms were very close, clean, and I only had to wait once. I didn't meet Rose, but she quickly responded to any questions I had and kept in good contact. If I ever Travel to San Francisco again, you can expect to see me in this location again.

  • Great location. The place was clean and ready for me when I arrived. Rose and Bryan were great, helpful hosts. No bathroom in the apartment was pretty rough. Besides that. All good.

  • It was nice. Thanks

  • Good luck beating this location! It's in a really perfect spot in the heart of the city. The apartment has everything we needed, including comfy beds and great water pressure in the (shared) showers. There are lots of restaurants, cafes, and bars nearby and the Italian market downstairs has sandwiches, snacks, and gelato. Rose was a quick and friendly communicator, though I didn't have the pleasure of meeting her or Bryan in person. I hope they keep this place because I'm already trying to think of excuses to come back!
