Approximately 3 weeks, or any portion of that, in London or a great European spot. (This is to bridge a longer European stay from mid-April into June.)

Lovely Apartment in Most Convenient Neighborhood of San Francisco, USA

The real San Francisco!! Classic Modern apartment in central neighborhood, but on a quiet cul-de-sac. Quiet and charming, but just blocks to hip Fillmore Street, Hayes Street, and downtown. Easy access to all of San Francisco (the entire city is only 7x7 miles). Live for a few days like a San Francisco native.

The home has high windows wrapping two sides - half the walls in the entire apartment have huge glass walls. Yet there is total privacy and quiet. Beautiful views across San Francisco to the West provide lovely sunsets nearly every evening. Or watch the fog roll in and across the neighborhoods, yet rarely reaching us at the top of Cathedral Hill (named for the famous Saint Mary's Cathedral, 1/2 block away). Our building has only 12 apartments, and is surrounded by a park-like setting with mature trees everywhere. It's one of the city's best-kept secrets.

Modern furnishings, museum-quality collection of drawings and photographs, large art library. Three bedrooms (one is used as a library), two full baths. Enclosed terrace, working fireplace, clothes washer and dryer and all amenities. Wifi and good sound system throughout.

Please note that our home is not suitable for children.

We hope you will provide simple care of TK, San Francisco's sweetest tuxedo cat.

Il nostro quartiere

Aeroporto più vicino: SFO - 15 miles (30-45 minutes, depending on traffic)

We are at the center of everything, with Japantown two blocks away; The Fillmore (a famous popular music hall) four blocks; many shops and restaurants in walking distance; Opera and Symphony Halls 10 blocks; Asian Museum 12 blocks; and more. Yet our home is very quiet, with trees and gardens all around.
