About this listing

Enjoy the BEST of San Francisco in this quiet, hip home located on Telegraph Hill. It's in the heart of one of the most iconic neighborhoods in the city, just steps from tourist attractions including Coit Tower, Lombard Street, Fisherman's Wharf, Exploratorium, China Town etc. Also near top restaurants, and shopping. This home features 2 bedrooms, a private courtyard, balcony, private deck with outdoor tub, well-stocked kitchen, laundry and a gorgeous living room with soaring ceilings.

The space

Gorgeous Telegraph Hill, San Francisco private home with 2 bedrooms (one queen and one bunk bed) and one and half baths. It is located on a small street just two blocks from Coit Tower, bus stops, restaurants, bars, and parks. Needless to say, it is exceptionally well located!

The street is quiet and the home is beautifully furnished with clean linens and towels. You enter the property and walk along into a gorgeous courtyard with mature palm and banana trees. The house sits are the rear of the property. There are two bedrooms and a jack and jill bath on the first floor. Upstairs there is a well-stocked kitchen and gorgeous living room with soaring ceilings, a large TV and designer furniture. A washer and dryer are located in the garage at the front of the property.

All linens are provided and will be clean. The home will be cleaned between guests by a professional cleaner so it will be fresh and nice for you when you arrive.

This property is unique because it is so well located and yet it's on a quiet residential street. We know you will love it!!

Guest access

Guests have access to the private home and can also eat or spend time in the central garden area, balcony, and side deck.

Interaction with guests

Guests are very independent. I often don't meet guests as our schedules are different (I stay in the studio apartment on the property), but when I do I am always pleased as every guest has been great! I am also always available to help if guests have questions or needs help.

Other things to note

Some local places for great eating include: Original Joe's (Classic Italian American cuisine and great bar for watching sports), Park Tavern (upscale dining with a vibrant bar scene), The House (Asian Fusion v. good! small place so definitely make a res), Cotogna (Italian .. need a res, but can only do it two weeks in advance). Breakfast at Mamas (it's touristy and you have to wait in line, but it's worth it!), pizza at Tony's Pizza (the best in SF), and tacos at Don Pistos are amazing. Elephant Sushi up Russian Hill is good and fun and filled with locals. STR-0000559

This place is great! Very comfortable, great location, fantastic host - what more could you ask for? Being so close to Coit Tower also made it really easy to find the way back when wandering around the city :)

Ruth's place is wonderful! It has a delightful location close to Coit Tower and good food. The suite is very well appointed and looks exactly like the pictures.

The room was exactly as described, very clean, and very comfortable. The location is brilliant. The one thing which I did not expect and particularly appreciated was that - despite being in a really exciting neighbourhood - it was very quiet. This is a fantastic base for exploring the city and it was perfect for me. Ruth is a friendly, helpful and unobtrusive host. I could not have asked for more from her.

Ruth User Profile

I am from San Francisco. I love to ski, do yoga and hang out with friends to hear live music. I have a 10 year old boy and have a cute French Bulldog. I work as a therapist and real estate agent.

As a host I love to help my guests find unique SF finds and can guide them to restaurants, museums, or beautiful walks through the city. Our guests are very independent. Sometimes I don't even see them even though we are just across the courtyard.

I love to travel and am especially partial to snow and water -- I don't like to sit still (love having a sport or adventure to guide the way). Throw in some culture and great food and I am in heaven. I generally stay in hotels or special Airbnb spots. I am easy to get along with and am respectful of people's views and their space. I love and appreciate beautiful places, but above all aim for safety, cleanliness, and an overall good vibe in the places I stay.
