Adorable Modern North Beach Condo offers the best of San Francisco. It's a 5-minute walk from Pier 39/Fisherman's Wharf, a short stroll to Chinatown or Columbus Avenue, within view of Coit Tower, less then a 5-minute drive to the top of famous Lombard Street, close to many boutique restaurants and shops, and close to the Embarcadero and Embarcadero Center. In a couple minutes you're shopping at Union Square. How about going to see a play tonight or a game at AT&T Park just down the street? The Cable Car Station is a short walk around the corner. Enjoy a walk to The Cannery or Ghirardelli Square. There is so much to do and see in this area!!
The condo is in a security building, has two bedrooms (1 king, 1 queen) and a fold-out sofa, 2 ensuite bathrooms and a half bath for your guest as well. It is fully furnished and stocked with all of the necessities of life. There is a private patio and a community courtyard area for entertaining. You get HDTV on a SMART46" flat screen, Comcast Cable, Netflix, access to the internet, WiFi, and the use of the Wii U!! Dedicated parking space in the garage. Full sized washer and dryer in the condo.
The city of San Francisco charges a 14% transient occupancy tax, commonly known as their "hotel tax." This tax is included in the rates, so you will not be charged any additional hotel tax.
This is a beautiful apartment in a great neighborhood. We could walk 10 minutes north for dinner at Fisherman's Wharf or 10 minutes south for dinner in the North Beach neighborhood (by far the better choice). The parking space in the garage was great for our rental car, but the 8X bus also runs right through the neighborhood making getting around very easy.
The listing of this apartment is quite accurate: beautifully appointed with high end sheets and towels, fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, etc. It is perfect for two couples. Although the couch in the living room does pull out to sleep another one or two people, keep in mind that the kitchen/dining room/living room is one big room so the people sleeping here have no privacy once others are awake. We brought a teenager with us, but I would not have felt comfortable bringing small children here (glass tables, expensive looking original art).
There is a very small private patio right off the living room (seats 2 comfortably with a small grill) and a larger communal patio (open to the entire building) right off of that. While we were there, no one seemed to use the communal patio so you may well have two private patios.
Donna and Jayne are very responsive to questions; check-in with Megan and check-out with Brooke were easy and efficient; and they provided an excellent three ring binder of instructions for the tv, other electronics, etc. Why don't all hosts do that?! Other thoughtful touches: umbrellas and a collapsible grocery cart for toting your purchases back from the grocery store which is only two blocks away.
We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to our friends!
Donna made us feel very welcomed as we were checked in by Brooke with a very nice smile on her face and very friendly and right on time.
Condo is super location to wharf and North Beach. Could walk to everything and in a quiet neighborhood.
Very roomy condo with all we needed. We will be back in the future we hope and thank Donna for a wonderful stay.
Donna was a wonderful host. I booked very last minute and she was quick to respond and very accommodating. The apartment is amazing, very clean, homely and in a wonderful location. We had 3 of us stay so used both bedrooms and the fold out sofa bed in the lounge room. I slept on the sofa bed and it was comfortable. My colleagues said the beds were perfect. I wouldn't hesitate to stay in Donna's apartment again and would thoroughly recommend it to others visiting San Francisco. Thanks for having us Donna!
An AWESOME time was had by all! My family decided to join me for a week long business trip in the City. Donna's place was a nice walk to meetings in the Financial District and close to great restaurants for business dinners. On the weekends, and nights without business dinners. We were able to explore all kinds of spots. The condo had great furnishings , a well equipped kitchen, and was really well stocked. My wife loved the whimsical decorations... Oh, and the reserved parking space was a Godsend! Donna was really flexible when we asked to check out late which allowed us to enjoy one more day in our old home town. This was our first time using AirBnB, but can assure you that Donna has set a standard that will be hard to beat! If I could I'd give it Six Stars
The condo is absolutely gorgeous. Equipped with everything you could possibly need and comes with a parking spot in the garage. Perfect for 3 or 4 people. Beautifully decorated and the patio is an added bonus. I can't say enough good things about this place!
We had a fantastic stay in Donna's apartment. The place is really lovely and just what we needed. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanted to staying in San Francisco. It was central and everything was a small cab ride away, unless of course you fancy climbing the hills and there are local shops and restaurants within walking distance - literally just along the next block. The apartment was really nicely decorated and had everything you could need, including a small private outside area which was nice. Would definitely go back.
The condo was perfect. Anything you could need was already there. It is close to the wharf and restraurants in North Beach. The condo is safe and comfortable. The beds are extremely comfortable. The patio in the back was an added bonus if you like the fresh air. I would definitely recommend the unit to anyone. Donna and her helpers we easy to work with and always answered my questions right away.
