Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in San Francisco - Classic SF Flat

Centrally Located Sf Flat, Sleeps Up To 6

This charming 2 bedroom Russian Hill flat, in an Edwardian building built in 1907, is the perfect location for your San Francisco get-away. The building is located on a quiet street in the delightful Russian Hill neighborhood that is full of old world charm, and is conveniently located near many of the wonderful sites and flavors that San Francisco has to offer:

1½ blocks to cable car (Hyde Street)

Less than 10 minute walk to historic North Beach

Less than 10 minute walk to bustling Chinatown

Less than 10 minute walk to Polk Street cafes and shops

3 minute cable car ride to Lombard St

5 minute cable car ride to Ghirardelli Square and Fisherman’s Wharf

Imagine waking up in this classic San Francisco flat deciding what to do with your day. You could go to a North Beach bakery for cappuccino and a pastry, followed by a walk to Coit Tower and Washington Square. Or you could head to Chinatown for Dim Sum, go souvenir shopping on Grant Ave followed by a traditional foot massage. Maybe you want to go to a coffee shop on Polk Street followed by an afternoon of window shopping at the many boutiques on Polk and Union streets. Or maybe you’ll take the cable car to Fisherman’s Wharf for a seafood brunch followed by a ferry boat ride to Alcatraz.

About the flat:

The master bedroom has a king size bed and bay window, decorated with art deco accents. The second bedroom has a queen size bed, original pocket doors that open to the living room, and is decorated with authentic California Plein-Air paintings.

The living room has a brand new, super comfortable pull-out sleeper sofa that sleeps two people. There are hardwood floors throughout the flat.

The newly renovated kitchen has beautiful original tile work from the 1920s as well as many contemporary conveniences, including a new dishwasher and microwave. I love to cook and I’ve stocked this kitchen with all the cookware, vintage dishware and cookbooks you need to make your own feasts if you so desire.

In classic San Francisco fashion, the bathroom and toilet room are separated. Both have original tile from the 1920s as well as vintage art deco mirrors.

Amenities include:

• Washer and Dryer in unit

• Complimentary coffee and tea

• Bedding and towels provided

• Shampoo, soap and blow dryer provided

• 50' HD Cable TV and high speed wireless internet

• Telephone with free domestic service

• Small outdoor yard with gas grill

• iPod docking station

Parking is available for an additional $30 per day. If you would like to reserve parking please indicate that in your request.

If you don't like the idea of walking up or down a hill you may want to consider renting a car or staying in a flatter (but not nearly as scenic or convenient!) area of town.

San Francisco is a great town for walking, but if you want to drop into a gym or attend a yoga class, there are several facilities close by.

No smoking anywhere on the property, including the outdoor backyard and the front steps.

About Kenji Yokoo

I moved from my native country of Japan to the Russian Hill neighborhood of San Francisco over 20 years ago and I plan to stay here forever. I truly love San Francisco and Russian Hill in particular. I manage my own art business and love collecting and restoring antiques. I also love traveling, wine tasting, hiking, visiting museums and galleries, cooking, and checking out new San Francisco restaurants and coffee shops.

I am passionate about respecting and maintaining San Francisco’s old world charm. I personally restored this property, keeping as much of the original details that I could while creating a comfortable atmosphere with modern conveniences. I want guests to have an authentic San Francisco experience, and hope the space I have created will make you feel at home.

Because I have lived here for so long, I can provide guests with tips on sites and local restaurants that are off of the beaten path. I can also recommend neighborhood walks that expose guests to the historic and cultural charm that San Francisco has to offer. Since I often go to Napa and Sonoma, I have many recommendations of wineries that you may want to visit.

I am proud of my adopted city and my home and want to share them with you. I hope that you can experience all the wonders of San Francisco that I am so lucky to enjoy everyday.

Demeure élégante, raffinée sur une colline mythique de SAN FRANCISCO

  • 5 out of 5
Cette ravissante maison du S.F. authentique tel qu'on l'imagine est un véritable plaisir. Le quartier central proche de tous les endroits à découvrir, tout en étant sur une des collines de S.F.est un avantage. L'accueil de Kenji est parfait et sa maison est un modèle de bon goût et de propreté. Elle est particulièrement bien équipée. Outre les petites attentions, ( bouteille de vin d'accueil, chocolats...) Kenji est de très bon conseil pour trouver les meilleurs restaurants et les endroits typiques hors des sentiers battus.
Nous recommandons vivement cette maison adossée à la colline.

Clean, lovely flat

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment is lovely, clean,in a central location, and stocked with every amenity. While Kenji could not meet us personally, he left detailed notes and information, along with a lovely bottle of wine and chocolates for our family. The apartment is stocked with soaps, laundry detergent, and an adorable coffee/tea area. The linens are top quality and luxurious, and the pull out sofa is great quality and comfortable. We did get to meet Kenji in person on our way out, and he is as hospitable as his home suggests. Highly recommend this rental!

Perfect spot on Russian Hill

  • 5 out of 5
our stay in Kenji's beautiful home in San Francisco could not have been better. It's beautifully decorated, immaculately clean and filled with every possible amenity a traveler could need. It was so wonderful to be in a true S.F. neighborhood and get a feel for life in the city outside of the usual tourist districts. The apartment is conveniently located and we could walk or catch a trolley to almost all of our destinations. Kenji is a perfect host, and we truly hope to return in the near future.

Exquisite in every way

  • 5 out of 5
We were lucky enough to spend the weekend in this flat for a girls weekend. It was so fun. The flat was so clean and simple. Everything was high quality and even the sofa bed was amazing. Kenji was so nice and was a great host. The first morning we woke up and wished we could live there. The location is also located in a great place. There is plenty to do. We didn't feel like tourist in the city. Kenji have us great ideas for getting around and encouraged us to celebrate. It's was a great weekend. I hope to return again soon.
