Why Barbara VanDermeer chose San Francisco

I am caring on the tradition of this uniquely family owned building since 1934 and hope to carry on this tradition for many generations.

What makes this apartment unique

Because this building was built by a very wealthy man in 1922 this Edwardian was spared no expenses and as a result the lovely curved ceilings, French doors, beautiful hardwood floors give the apartments a spacious feeling of a home versus an apartment. The lovely Lobby with its original flocked wallpaper gives one the feeling of being back in the early 1900's.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The apartment was very, very beautiful and very comfortable. The owner is unbelievable, friendly, and nice. The area is wonderful, you can reach everything by foot. Can't wait to come back. Thank you for everything, Barbara!

Our Other Home in San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

Would like to record our appreciation, admiration and very special thanks to Villa Nob Hill for our recent visit to San Francisco. As we were in the City for medical appointments and in anticipation of feeling unwell, we were very particular with our selection of accommodation. We were looking for a home away from home and we definitely found it!! The owner is the most dedicated and caring lady who went out of her way to make our visit as comfortable as possible. We were placed in the rear apartment overlooking the back garden and insulated from a lot of the traffic noise. This enabled me to sleep during the day if needed to recuperate for my treatment. Being self contained we were able to prepare meals and the very comfortable apartment was very close to grocery stores, pharmacies and all other amenities. We regularly used the Cable Car to travel which can be hailed within metres of the front door. We would definitely recommend Villa Nob Hill to other visitors and to the owner...our heart filled thanks!!

Great value, a convenient and comfort location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good experience in this rental apartment. While we were in town for business, these apartments would serve tourists or casual visitors equally well. The location was convenient- just a short walk to Union Square, Chinatown, etc. If you're in a rush, you can catch Uber and be anywhere in just a few minutes. Even the California St. cable car is an option, passing by right out front. Service was extremely friendly and personal. All pictures in the listing are accurate. I'd definitely recommend as an alternative to standard hotel rooms or hit-or-miss AirBnB.

Like the listing says, a real gem!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic week we had at Villa Nob Hill. Easy public transportation in all directions. Really convenient! Trader Joe's market one block away. We stayed in Apt#4 which was original to the Edwardian building. It was decorated in a comfortable pre war style with conveniences where you wanted them in the kitchen & bathroom. Our host Barbara helped us plan our 'tourist stuff' to a San Francisco that made our visit. Try walking the GG Bridge. So many thanks to Barbara V.
