The bathroom comes equipped with glassed-in shower/bath combination and handheld shower head. Hot water is quick and plentiful. Plush spa towels and an assortment of quality bathroom amenities will be provided during your stay.

KITCHEN

Cook up a meal in our large funky 80’s kitchen (but why do that when you're steps away from some truly fabulous restaurants) or heat up some leftovers for yourself. We offer plenty of wine glasses and anything else you might need to make you feel right at home.

THE SPACE

Casa North Beach is a Private Suite located on the lower level of an Edwardian Building which was built in the early 1900's. Tall ceiling, decorative woodwork and lots of San Francisco charm. Guests have their own private entrance and exclusive use of the suite. Our three-generation family does live in the building along with our dog. You might not even see us, unless you want too... but we do share common walls. We take great pride in our home and of course the suite is thoroughly cleaned between stays.

NEIGHBORHOOD:

Located in the HEART of the city you will never be bored here! Start the day off on the right foot with a stroll around Washington Square Park before sipping on a latte from one of the many coffee shops in the area. Tour the city by land, by sea, or by Segway! Spend the afternoon exploring North Beach, having tea in Chinatown, shopping at Union Square, visiting Fisherman’s Wharf, or soaking up some rays at Washington Square Park like a local.

SUNSHINE

North Beach has some of the best weather in the city. While we do get fog like the rest of the city, you'll most certainly find more sunshine and warmer temperatures here.

RESTAURANTS

The city has dutifully limited the amount of chain establishments that can take residence in North Beach, so when it comes time for dinner, so you're sure to sample only genuine fare while here. You can’t go wrong with a bite at Original Joe's, a pie from Tony’s Pizza, Asian fusion at The House, or Mexican at Don Pisto’s. Cap off the night at Tosca Café with their famous boozy coffee or for some local flavor have a cocktail at Tony Nik's … there are so many amazing places to choose from! Your only regret will be that there wasn’t enough time to try them ALL…But hey you can always come back!

A LITTLE HISTORY

Our gorgeous suite is located in San Francisco’s North Beach district is the City’s “Little Italy.” The heart of this historic quarter is Washington Square Park, an urban oasis surrounded by sidewalk cafes, coffee houses and shops, anchored on the north side by gorgeous Saints Peter and Paul Church. Casa North Beach is just 1 flat block from the park, giving guests an easy access to this lively neighborhood with an Italian accent.

North Beach is where the Italian immigrants first settled upon migrating westward from Europe and the East Coast, both during the Gold Rush and in the early part of the 20th century. Much of North Beach has retained the old-world feel of the late 1800s and early 1900s, and you'll still hear Italian being spoken on the streets and in the many cafes that dot the area.

First-time visitors to North Beach always have the same question: “Why is it called North Beach if it doesn’t have a beach?”

Ah, but long ago, there was a beach. For more information, check out North Beach's Wikipedia page

*** American Planning Association proclaimed North Beach to be one of nation's 10 best neighborhoods!!!

PARKING SITUATION

It would be hard to have a better location. We loved to walk and this place is convenient to everywhere we wanted to go. Very nicely appointed and very nice owner. I'd book here again.

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

The property was fabulous. Great location. At the doorstep of restaurants, bike hire, cafes, the awesome pier 39. Lola was very helpful and answered all our questions. The house had everything we needed including some snacks, which was a lovely thing to do. You will love staying here and will feel like a local in no time. Highly recommend this property to anyone

Fav in San Fran

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent place for a visit to SF. The location is close to many attractions and mass transit. Lola, the owner, provides all the amenities to make your stay easy and efficient. Have a special request, just ask her. The living room and bedroom were both very comfortable and well furnished. There is a corner food store steps away to buy all you need for a great stay.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and loved the apartment, it is spacious, well laid out, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen was fully equipped and a joy to use (even better when the oven is fixed). The bathroom is small but workable. Lounge room and bedroom are seperated by a wide doorway that can be closed off but makes the place feel quite large.

Location is really excellent, walk up the street to Washington Square and get a bus to anywhere or walk down the hill to Pier 39 and catch the F-line tram to the centre of downtown. Cable cars are easily accessed and there is a small grocery store a couple of doors away plus a larger supermarket down the hill.

No maps or brochures are supplied so bring your own. It was especially good when we obtained a map that showed how the cable cars and the F-line linked up.

The apartment is generally very quiet - there are no noisy restaurants or bars close by but there is a Fire Station just up the street and they do seem to put the siren on every time they leave. We also found that on a weekend the occupants of the flat above had kids who continually ran across the wooden floor and then slammed the front door (there is a common wall between the apartments) and then slammed the gate. Also there is a garage directly under the bedroom and every time the garage door is accessed it is very noisy.

These were irritating but not enough to stop me recommending the apartment, would stay there again if ever in SF.

CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK!!!

  • 5 of 5

I took my wife to San Francisco to celebrate her 50th Birthday. She had never been there and has always wanted to go. We are SO glad we booked this VRBO with Lola! It was the perfect place to stay. We would do it all over again right now if we could. Lola met us at the door after we experienced a BART ride from SFO to the Financial District, then UBER to the property. It worked perfectly! The location cannot be beat. We absolutely loved the location, the property and our entire experience. Thank you, Lola! See you again soon! Craig & Janet
