Our classic private room/kitchenette/bath has a true San Francisco feeling. It's located in the heart of one of the most iconic neighborhoods in the city, just steps from tourist attractions, top restaurants, and shopping.
Gorgeous North Beach, San Francisco private room/kitchenette/bath for short-term rent. 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 studio is well furnished with clean linens and towels. It is one big room plus a full bathroom (with tub and shower). There is a small, well-stocked kitchenette including a 4 burner stove top, oven, fridge, and sink. In one corner is a wood burning stove/fireplace. A washer and dryer are located in the garage under the studio.
All linens are provided and will be clean. The studio will be cleaned between guests by a professional cleaner so it will be fresh and nice for you when you arrive.
Our neighborhood, North Beach, is a major destination. It is vibrant and fun with tons of restaurants, cafes, shops and night life. There are parks, playgrounds and sights such as the Filbert Steps and Coit Tower just 2 blocks from the apartment. You can easily walk downtown or to Chinatown in just minutes.
Major bus lines and trolley cars run constantly and are located within two blocks (three for the trolley cars) of the apartment.
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!!
Guests have access to the private room/kitchenette/bath and can also eat or spend time in the central garden area.
Interaction with Guests
Guests are very independent. You can arrive and leave as you wish. I often don't meet guests as our schedules are different, 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.
It is very convenient to multiple bus and trolly lines. Taxis are easy to find.
Other Things to Note
Some local places for great eating include: The House (Asian Fusion v. good! small place so definitely make a res), The Square (a bit pricey, but well executed California style food part of a high-end, restaurant group), 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.
Please treat the apartment kindly, but no reason to make your bed in the morning as no one will see it but you :) There is no smoking on the premises and only small, well-behaved dogs can visit (we have two cute French Bulldogs). Don't worry if you don't like dogs or are allergic to them -- we clean thoroughly between guests.
You will be completely independent as we live in a separate structure on the same property. Your kitchen will allow you to cook or re-heat meals and store your own food.
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.
Great location. Nice and clean studio. Lots of character. Highly recommended.
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.
It was delightful! Will highly recommend to family & friends. Ruth was a great host and the location is perfect to walk to restaurants, cafes, parks and much more.
I really enjoyed my stay in Ruth's apartment. The studio is really cosy and in a great location.
Internet connection was a bit intermittent but that was the only downside. I'd stay here again!
Wonderful stay - everything taken care of ahead of arrival. Very clean, quaint, comfortable and private accommodations. Great communication from the host. Tucked into a quiet spot of a bustling and fun neibeghborhood.
This charming studio is in the heart of North Beach, extremely convenient both to the Financial District as well as areas of interest to visitors such as Telegraph Hill and Fisherman's Wharf. Ruth was very responsive to requests and suggestions and was both a helpful but discreet host. The space itself is comfortable and secure. I enjoyed my lengthy stay and the nearby restaurants and local shops. Closer to 4.5 stars but that is not a rating option.
I am from San Francisco. I love to ski, do yoga and hang out with friends to hear live music. I am a single mom of a great 7 year old boy and have two cute French Bulldogs. I work as a therapist and a sometimes yoga instructor.
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 studio is separate from our house so 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.
