Photos and Description of this Nob Hill holiday apartment
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 2 queen sofa beds, Sleeps 6 (3 queen sized beds total)

This is probably the highest-rated vacation rental in all of San Francisco. As of this writing (April 2014) this property has been rated a perfect 5 star by 159 guests in only 4 years as a vacation rental (with not a single rating of less than 5 stars). We don't think any other property in the City can match that record of guest reviews. Please read all of our past-guest reviews!

This is the vacation rental that doesn't seem like a vacation rental. Many of our guests have said this is the finest vacation rental they have ever stayed in! We love hearing that from our guests, as that is our goal here!

Romantic & Spacious this is the first floor unit of a historic 1907 two-apartment residence on the very top of Nob Hill. It has approximately 1,250 square feet with high 9.5 ceilings throughout. The property has been remodeled to the highest standard with new gourmet kitchens, stunning marble bathrooms, designer furniture, expensive chandeliers, tasteful artwork, period antiques, and flat screen television sets (2 per unit). This is the quintessential San Francisco experience - walking distance to North Beach, Fisherman's Wharf, Union Square shopping, downtown, Polk Street, the Marina District, etc.

Property has views of the Bay, including the Bay Bridge, Treasure Island, and Berkeley.

FREE parking is included during your stay - parking is otherwise very hard to find on Nob Hill and is usually quite expensive in this location.

This property has a beautiful private formal flower garden, including charming night lighting.

Location is Perfect for Tourism: This property is located at the top of historic Nob Hill. You can't get a better location in San Francisco - walking distance to shopping (Union Square), Chinatown, Russian Hill, Grace Cathedral, The Fairmont Hotel, Fisherman's Wharf, Little Italy, North Beach, the Marina District, Polk Street, the Cable Car Museum, and much more.

FREE Parking - a rarity on Nob Hill: FREE Parking is available upon request. Parking in San Francisco is very hard to find... especially in this central location.

Walk To Food Stores and Restaurants: This property is one block from Le Beau Nob Hill - a charming food market which sells everything you will need. It is two blocks from Grace Cathedral and the park atop Nob Hill. You will also be one block to a charming restaurant (the Nob Hill Cafe) as well as other great restaurant choices.

This is a very special property that found me (rather than the other way around). I have lovingly restored it to 'better than new' with all kinds of beautiful upgrades. Yet the original personality of this home remain intact - as does the original 1907 San Francisco-style woodwork & trim. I am happy to share my home with you, as the VRBO experience has been wonderful - I've met so many nice people and have enjoyed helping them make their trip to San Francisco memorable.

James Hickman purchased this apartment in 2006

This is my home and I feel very, very lucky to live here - it is historic, fully remodeled, and very beautiful. The property selected me (life can be like that), rather than the other way around. I am lucky to live here and happy to share this property with you. You are sure to want to come back again and again!

Historic 1907 San Francisco architecture. Approximately 1,250 square feet with high 9.5 foot ceilings. Ornate original trim in each room - very San Francisco! FREE reserved parking outside of your door - a total rarity in this location. Best SF location for tourism.. and SF's most historic neighborhood. Views. Large private flower garden shared with only one other unit - a perfect place for a meal or a glass of wine.

Walk to Union Square, North Beach, Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, Polk Street, Russian Hill, Nob Hill, Coit Tower, The Marina District, The Ferry Building, Moscone Center, The Embarcadero and more! Nob Hill is one of San Francisco's most beautiful and historic neighborhoods. This location is at the top of the hill (the higher you are, the better the neighborhood in SF) - above the best hotels like the Fairmont, The Huntington Hotel, The Mark-Hopkins Hotel, and the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Moreover, it is just 2 short blocks to Hunttington Park and Grace Cathedral. This beautiful neighborhood is truly the heart of San Francisco. Walk to stores and fine restaurants.

"We hit a home run in San Francisco"

  • Review Submitted: 16/04/2014
  • Date of Stay: Apr 2014
I am married with 2 high school children and I am currently hosting an exchange student from Germany. My family travels a few times a year, always staying in hotels. A friend told me about homeaway.com and I decided to give it a try. After searching the many properties in San Francisco I came across several apartments near the city that would work for our family. I chose James's apartment in Nob Hill because of the size, location and the convenient free parking. Before our arrival James the homeowner emailed us detailed pages of information that I found helpful. He included list of local and fun restaurants, city tours, sites, and some assistance with the transportation system. This information saved me hours of research and helped us explore and enjoy San Francisco. The apartment was very clean with upgraded appliances including a washer, dryer and cable TV. The outside private garden was great spot to relax after a long day of sightseeing. The access to my private parking spot and nearby public transportation made our site-seeing stress free. The neighborhood was at the top of a hill in a nice friendly neighborhood. Several people knew we were renting this apartment and went out of their way to help us get around town. One person let us follow them to the Giants game and directed us on how to return to the apartment by avoiding the crowds. Another person that we met at the corner bus stop called us several times a day making sure that we were not having problems getting around town.Overall, the people were great!!! I plan to book many more trips using homeaway.com for future stays. The next time I am in San Francisco I know where I will be staying.
Owner's Response: Dear Michigan Family: Thank you very much for the wonderful review! Your's is the 162nd review for my apartment in four years - and like all of the other ones is a perfect 5 star rating. Thank yo for being such great guests! I especially loved reading about the friendly, helpful neighbors!!! I feel the same way about my neighbors - so many kind, thoughtful people live in SF! I am glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again soon.

The BEST find in all of San Francisco!

  • Review Submitted: 14/04/2014

This apartment is stunning and completely inviting. I really think it is the finest vacation rental available. My family of 5 stayed here for 5 nights and everyone completely fell in love with the apartment. From the minute we arrived at the door step we knew this place was special. The building has been carefully, tastefully and lovingly restored to modern convenience and comfort yet retains its Victorian grandeur, beauty and charm. I appreciated the spacious kitchen designed by and for real cooks, it is even stocked with all of the spices and basic provisions you might need. My three kids ages 13-17, repeatedly told me “this place is great, Mom, thanks.” They even commented on how comfortable the sofa sleepers were! We opted to not rent a car for our visit and take advantage of the public transportation and close access to the city’s top spots. We felt like we lived in San Francisco the week we were there. It was so fun to walk down to Chinatown for take-out or over to Trader Joe’s to get supplies for breakfast.

James, the owner is equally impressive as the apartment. James was responsive, accommodating and helpful from the minute I submitted an inquiry until we arrived back home. He is the consummate concierge. I appreciated his attention to every detail and thorough insights and recommendations for touring the city. We came to rely on James’ recommendations in the printed “Welcome Email,” referring to it as The Book of James.

I highly recommend this apartment!
Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you to my guests from Colorado for the incredible review. This one is the 161st review for this apartment - and like all the other reviews it is a perfect 5 star rating. I truly have the very, very best guests in the entire world. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and for your business too. I hope you can return to SF soon! James

Our family of four stayed for four nights and we loved everything about these accomodations. Convience, luxury, spacious, clean, great location, view, lovely garden, and an extermely well appointed and spacious kitchen. We loved the extra space, price and ammenities compared to paying for a suite at an over priced hotel. This property really has it all and the owner (James) couldn't be more welcoming and helpful. You won't be disappointed!

Owner's Response: Dear Minnesota Family: Thank you for your stay and for taking the time to share your kind thoughts. I truly have the best guests in the world (people like you) - and am very pleased to know you enjoyed your time in San Francisco. The vacation rental process is truly about sharing - and it is my pleasure to share my city and apartment with you. Thank you again, James

This property topped any of my expectations. My husband and I had always stayed at the Fairmount anytime in SF but bringing our 3 children made it necessary to find other accommodations. This condo is beautiful and elegant but homey at the same time. We were all so comfortable and the way James assisted us from even the small details made the stay that much more perfect! We will be in SF next year as it's my favorite city and you can bet we will be staying here again. Thank you James

The interpersonal exchange really makes the vacation rental process a pleasure for both guest and owner. I am truly blessed to have wonderful people like you share your holiday memories with my home.

My family and I spent 3 days in this elegant and historic property. The owner James was very informative on things to do and where to go and he was spot on. I have visited San Francisco in the past and have stayed in the Fairmont (Nob Hill) and the Mark Hopkins Intercontinental, and I would have to say this stay was the best! In my opinion this property rivals the ambiance and elegance of those 2 historic hotel properties!
Owner's Response: Dear Family from Naples, FL:

Thank you very much for your stay and for your very kind comments. I truly appreciate your business and am very glad to know on a personal level that you enjoyed your time in my city and apartment. I am glad you liked my list of recommendations! That list has grown and grown and is now over 60 pages!!! I wrote it to help my guests find the "true" San Francisco - the one beyond the tourist traps! There's so much to enjoy in this wonderful, exotic city. I look forward to your next stay. Thank you again, James
