The Space

Two spacious light-filled rooms and bath overlooking South facing Garden on Telegraph Hill. The photos are a true depiction of what you will enjoy.
A large book-lined bedroom with a TV/reading area by two south facing windows looking on to the south garden.
The second room with a skylight and a Dutch door and more windows overlooking the garden is light and often sun flooded and features a combination breakfast bar and office area complete with Guest WiFi. Additionally, there is a washer/dryer exclusively for guest use as part of this room.
Reviews from previous Guests all mention how quiet the Garden Apartment is and how they found it to be a refuge from a busy day of either business activities or sight seeing.
Excellent weather. Walk to downtown or to the best coffee houses in North Beach or many of the best restaurants from this location. There (email hidden) available for reference.
Public transportation -- including the famous Cable Car line -- is just a few blocks away.
Step outside on to the street, and you will have a world class view of San Francisco Bay, including Alcatraz, and very likely one or more large cruise ships docked below on the Bay.
Breakfast provisions are provided and will include organic fruit juice, ground coffee, Half & Half, organic bananas, and usually gluten-free scones. A special dietary request will be honored - if possible.

Guest Access

South facing Garden just off Apt. is for the exclusive enjoyment of Airbnb guests.

Interaction with Guests

I interact with Guests as much as they require. Some guests are totally self sufficient while others like helpful suggestions on where to dine, etc.
There is quite a bit of info in the Apt. on what to do, where to go -- some of which has been left by previous guests as recommendations.

The Neighborhood

Telegraph Hill enjoys some of the best views and some of the best weather SF offers. From this location one can walk to many of the iconic SF sights. Coit Tower is practically in the backyard.
As is North Beach, Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39 and The Embarcadero. The well known Ferry Building on the Embarcadero is only a 20 minute walk.
Chinatown and even our fine shopping district, Union Square, is not more than a 20 to 30 minute walk from the Garden Apt.

Getting around

The Powell St. Cable Car is a few blocks away and there are several bus lines in North Beach. But we now have taxi cab alternatives such as Uber, Lyft and Sidecar that will pick you up and drive you wherever you need to go.

Other Things to Note

This is a walking City and there is no better place from which to start out than from the Garden Apt.
There are dozens of restaurants to walk to in any direction.

  • We had a great stay at Kaye's apartment and would absolutely recommend it!

    The apartment itself is almost bigger than the photos would suggest, there was plenty of room for 2 of us. Additionally the place was stocked with essentials like coffee, washing powder, shower gel, shampoo etc. which was a nice touch.

    Location-wise it was excellent, very close to the boats to Alcatraz, bike tour companies and many nice bars / restaurants.

    Finally Kaye was an excellent host - she welcomed us with fresh fruit and cinnamon bread on arrival and was there for us whenever we needed her.

    A really great place to stay!

  • Kaye's apartment was amazing, it was exactly what we were looking for, it was walking distance to everything we had planned for our trip, the place was homely, comfortable and located on a hill surrounded by an amazing view. 5/5 We wish we could come back :)

  • Kaye's place was lovely, it looks exactly like the photos. The garden was particularly beautiful. The area was quiet yet very central. The views from outside the apartment are also lovely. If you are bringing a car make sure you get the permit before arriving at the apartment or just come without a car. We didn't need the car whilst we were there.

  • Had a great 4 nights at Kaye's. Walking distance to Fishermens Wharf, Little Italy and Coit Tower. Kaye is on top of a steep hill so be prepared if walking from there. Good transport close by, down the hill. Comfy bed, clean apartment, great internet connection. Very quiet. Kaye was delightful, but not intrusive. Recommended.

  • Ms. Woods was very helpful, even going out and getting groceries for us when our delivery did not work out. The place was very clean and the garden beautiful. We would definitely want to stay there again on our next trip to San Francisco.

    Also, the neighborhood and views are the best in San Francisco.

  • Kaye is a wonderful host. Very welcoming, friendly and hospitable. Her place is so lovely, spacious, comfortable and in a prime location. Kaye even left us some delicious bread, yoghurt and fruit for breakfast. The use of the washing machine became very handy given our stay here was in our fourth week of our trip so we were able to wash some clothing. Kaye and her Garden apartment are lovely and I cannot recommend them enough.

  • Thank you Kaye for making your garden apartment available to strangers like we were. The position could not be better although it is a steep walk from Fisherman's Wharf back up but that takes care of the calories we consumed during the day. Your place is very pleasant with a lot of space in bedroom/tv room as well as the kitchen/office area. The cherry on top was the adjacent garden and the feel of a country site in the middle of town. Thanks for looking after us the way you did. We have left San Francisco with very good memories, not the least because of our pleasant stay at your place.

  • We enjoyed a marvelous long weekend at Kaye's Garden Apartment on Telegraph Hill. The location is perfect for everything you want to do in San Francisco! We walked to the Ferry Building for Saturday's Farmer's Market, we walked to Coit Tower then North Beach for yummy Italian Pizza and we walked down Columbus to Fisherman's Wharf! The apartment is perfectly quiet and comfortable. Kaye made it so special for us with wonderful breakfast items and fabulous coffee. We will definitely be back!

  • This was our first trip to the west coast and the great experience was only made better by Kaye. This was our first airbnb experience as well and Kaye's place was all it was promised to be. We had a great time and certainly would stay there again next time.

    Thanks again Kaye!
