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.

An excellent stay in San Francisco!

  • 5 out of 5
Kenji's house is truly exceptional - warm, spacious, very clean, and in a convenient location. He is quick and easy to communicate with, and has made his home a welcome abode. I book accommodations for my company's executives and Kenji's has been a favorite place to stay.

Great find on Russian Hill!

  • 5 out of 5
The accommodations and Kenji the owner could not have been any better! We started our two trip to San Francisco and the Wine Country here and immediately knew we had chosen the perfect spot to begin our adventure. The flat is spacious with a nice layout. It has all the comforts of home and then some. The neighborhood is not touristy so we were able to live like locals and that really adds to the experience for us. All in all we would highly recommend this property and hope to get back ourselves very soon!

We stayed here with our adult son while visiting family in the Russian Hill area. The apartment was immaculate, nicely furnished and well equipped. We will definitely be back.

Perfect location and amazing home

  • 5 out of 5
This home is right out of the better home and gardens, with all the antiques, art works. But it is also super comfortable, from the fluffy comforters that you can snuggle in at night, to all the amanities in the kitchen (loved all the gourmet coffee), to the fabulous toilet (yes, no joke, the toilet is so cool we actually went out and got one of our own now at home. ;)). The flat is located in the perfect place, quiet at night, but within a few minutes of walking to great restaurants and shops. We love to walk, so it is perfect distance to walk to all the major attractions as well. What's more, Kenji is a great host, so welcoming with hot green tea when you first arrive and all the maps, personal recommendations of what to do and where to eat. Make our trip to SF just that much more special. We would definitely recommend Kenji's home and stay again on our next trip to SF.

Kenji's 5 Star City Retreat

Kenji's 5 Star City Retreat
  • 5 out of 5
Stay in one of San Francisco's oldest neighborhoods in a beautifully restored row house in Russian Hill. Our host Kenji gave us great advice and welcomed us with hot tea. The bedrooms are large and the neighborhood is very quiet. Kenji has stocked the kitchen with an espresso machine, teas, and all you need to make a gourmet meal. The apartment is equipped with a private washer and dryer, iron and ironing board making any length of stay a breeze for travelers. It was a five star experience from start to finish and Kenji makes you feel right at home.

great location, great host

  • 5 out of 5
the house is in a great location and walkable to most of SF sites, except Golden Gate park and the mission (unless you like long walks) and you don't mind a few hills, but then why come to SF.
The host has so much information available to help figure out where to go and gave us 3 excellent restaurant rec's, all within a short walk. The house is very clean and we were welcomed with a bottle of wine and chocolates. A great alternative to a hotel stay.
