Superbe stay in telegraph Hill
It was really a great stay in the apartment of Mdm Schreier. Very comfortable, good beds, good location, it was more than worthwhile to rent this apartment!
Our second stay at this lovely apartment
This was our second stay at San Francisco, this time with our two grown-up daughters. We rented this wonderful apartment again because we felt very comfortable at our first stay in 2010. We had such a great time at San Francisco and also our two daughters loved this cozy apartment. Thank you again, Nathalie, for your hospitality.
Vacation at Telegraph Hill
Great place for the flat, walking distances to several points of interest,such as:
Coit Tower, Fishermans Wharf,Pier 39 & Cable Cars.
The flat & garage was perfect for us 4 people.
We recommend this sort of staying.
we stayed a week at the appartment in genoa st and loved it. We were close to restaurants, bistro's, shops and grocerie stores. The appartment was lovely, very cosy and neat. It was clean and all the appliances worked. Nathalie arranged a playpen and high chair for our daughter and was a lovely person overall. Would def stay there a second time.

Fantastic apartment in a fantastic location
We had five wonderful nights in San Francisco and staying in the apartment was the highlight of our trip. Once we confirmed all the arrangements and payment with Nathalie she sent us a very detailed e-mail explaining how to get into the apartment and lots of great tips about where to get supplies and eat out. The apartment is in one of the best locations in the city and we'll certainly be recommending it to family and friends. Thanks Nathalie for being such a great host!
A great apartement, close to everything but on a quiet street.
This apartment was more spacious that I'd imagined, with 2 double bedrooms, living room, kitchen/diner and big bathroom. One bedroom faced onto the main road (which was not busy) and the other was internal so a bit quieter, especially on bin day. It was furnished perfectly with everything we needed and very clean. The location was perfect - lots of bars and restaurants at the bottom of the road but still on a quiet part of the street so we were not disturbed. It's a 10 min walk to Chinatown, maybe 12-15 min walk to Fisherman's wharf. It was handy to have the garage as we had a hire car to explore the surrounding area, eg Napa Valley. You don't need a car in town though - everything is close by or the trams take you there easily.
Nathalie the owner was lovely to deal with - we had no problems at all with payments or picking up the keys. I would definitely stay here again.

Merveilleux séjour à SF
Nous avons séjourné une semaine en famille avec nos 2 grands ados à San Francisco dans l'appartement de Nathalie et Greg. Il est idéalement placé pour se déplacer à pieds ou en transport en commun. Les précieux conseils de Nathalie nous ont beaucoup aidé dans la découverte de la ville. L'appartement est très cosy très bien équipé, et confortable. Tout est prévu pour y être comme à la maison. L'endroit est très calme mais à quelques minutes de toutes les commodités. Absolument rien à redire. Notre seul regret est de ne pas avoir eu l'occasion de rencontrer les propriétaires qui bien qu'absents ont téléphoné pour s'assurer de notre confort. Merci encore pour ces excellents moments.
Nottingham, United Kingdom
Lovely apartment in a fantastic location. Stayed here for a week and found it perfect for what we needed - great location for seeing the sights but also enough space to get the children to bed whilst we enjoyed the evening. Plenty of bars and restaurants a stroll away but not close enough to disturb your sleep.
The muni bus does a loop at the end of the road so you can watch for it then run out and be straight down to fisherman's wharf!
Living like a local
I have been staying in fancy hotels until I realized how much more fun is to stay in a vacation rental appartment.By that I would not skip to mention all the "delights of living like a local",like in this case,learning how to unlock the gate of the old Edwardian building, being woken up by the garbage truck running under the bedroom window at 5:30am or party minded youth in wee hours and how to manage living like most of the world population does-in a compact space.All this is only a part of experiencing life in the charming building, in one of the most privileged locations of such a beautiful city.My family had a great stay in this cute appartment,only 2 blocks from what the realtors call "quintessential San Farncisco life" and we feel that nothing can beat this experience.The place is basic,but clean and equiped with everything one needs for a short stay .The views of Russian Hill from the living room (bay!)window are priceless!The neighbours did not bother us at all and we hope that they felt the same about us.The building is on the hill,fortunately not very steep and easily accessible for an average fitness level.
Nathalie was available,helpful and very informative, not to mention her kind gesture of bringing us fabulous Ghirardelli's chocolates.Thank you Nathalie!We are looking forward to coming back!
This apartment is an absolute gem.
It is certainly compact but beautifully fitted out with everything that you could possibly need and in the most amazing location. It sits just below Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill, in a few blocks of quiet, peaceful suburbia. At the same time it is within easy walking distance to the colour and bustle of China Town, the trendy restaurants of Little Italy and the tourist mecca of Fisherman’s Wharf. From Fisherman’s Wharf, it is then a short ferry ride to alcatraz or a lovely bike ride to the Golden Gate Bridge.
I highly recommend Genoa Place!
Great apartment in a perfect location
This compact apartment is in a perfect location for exploring San Francisco. Within easy walking distance of most 'tourist' areas, but also with good access to public transport.
Nathalie provided excellent information about local eateries, shops etc.
Would definitely recommend.
Great location - Disappointing stay.
Yes, the location on Telegraph Hill can not be beat. Unfortunately for us, the apartment can be beat fairly easily. We stayed in Nathalie's first floor apartment, which is identical to the one above in layout and facilities. The place is incredibly small. Furniture and doors are constantly interfering with each other. The bedroom doors can not be opened completely, for example. There are many little things that, while each is small, contribute to an overall feeling that this place is hard to live in. The refrigerator door opens the wrong way. The heater is located in the living room, and no heat gets to the bedrooms if the doors are closed. The washer and dryer are located in the garage and are coin-op. The washer takes its water away from the tank for this unit - limiting shower length.
The biggest annoyance is that the unit above has hardwood floors. The smallest movements made by occupants above come booming through into the lower unit.
The price of this unit is quite reasonable for the area, so a certain amount of inconvenience is to be expected. We found the inconveniences to be a bit more than we expected.
Response from NATHALIE SCHREIER - 01/07/2012
My first floor apartment is rather small, it is true and that's why I specify in the description on the home away website where it is advertised that it is 600 square feet only.
However I have been renting it for several years now and as you can read on the reviews (http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p272093), and I can honestly say that 99% of my guests have been really happy with the apartment despite the fact that it is a small place, and many families of four stay there. The furniture, kitchen and bath are custom made quality ( my husband is a cabinetmaker). I have very good relations with my guests and many are return customers. Most people are very respectful of the property as well, which cannot be said of tmk. My apartment was left in a really dirty state, stained sheets and they even rearranged the furniture! scratching the walls in the process. Fortunately most people are not that "creative" with the furniture... Lastly I wish my guest would have at least mentioned this to me.
Alice Springs Australia
We recently had a week in Nathalie apartment in North Beach, fantastic location plus great tips from Nathalie on everything from public transport to were to buy good wine, would highly recommend this apartment in particular with kids as it's very easy to walk to parks and the bay area in general, plus the great bus system one block away to Union sq and many great restaurant and bars on 2 min walk away.
This was a great location for easy access to all of San Francisco's popular sights and restaurants. For us, everything was within walking distances, even at&T; ballpark (40 min) and Pier 39 (~10min). The property was very clean, comfortable and just right for a family of 4 with teenagers. Thank you, Nathalie, for checking in on us during our stay and providing us with very helpful information to get groceries, North Beach restaurants, local transportation and transportation to/from the airport. We would recommend this property to a friend or relative.
So charming and convenient!
Our family of 4 stayed in this wonderful apartment for 4 nights. This was our first time trying a vacation rental and while I was slightly nervous, after corresponding with Nathalie, I know it would be fine. It was more than fine!! Perfect location, cuter than the pictures revealed, perfectly clean, well stocked linens and kitchen amenities. Nathalie and her husband (Greg?) stopped by to check on us and introduce themselves - very nice couple. Can't wait to visit again!
Brighton, United Kingdom
Holiday to San Francisco 2010
Brilliant location near china town and local shops, it is easy to walk into the main town. The appartment was clean and in a good place. Very happy with our stay and would deffinately recommend to anyone who is coming to San Francisco!
Sehr schönes Appartement in ruhiger und zentraler Lage
Das Appartment bietet alles, was man braucht. Die Lage ist absolut gut, am Fuße des Coit Tower und in der Nähe Washington Square. Dort kommt man mit dem Bus (5-Min-Takt) ins Zentrum oder nach Fishermans Wharf. Dabei sehr ruhig gelegen in einer Wohngegend. Achtung bei Mietwagennutzung: Öffentliche Parkplätze kaum verfügbar.
Fantastic central location
We stayed for five nights with two daughters. The flat was very clean and comfortable. Most attractions were in walking distance and public transport was near by. If we go to San Francisco again we would certainly hire this place again. I have recommended to a work colleague who may visit in 2011. We hired the garage which makes parking very easy.

Superb Stay - Couldn't wish for better!
This was most probably our last holiday with our teenage son and wanted to make it something special. So San Francisco seemed a wise choice for a seventeen year old!
Our experience was totally enhanced by our selection of accommodation. Location wise could not be bettered. Just a stones throw from the exciting cafe scene of Venice Beach & Little Italy. We were certainly not short of entertaining our son at evening. There is a wide variety of restaurants, cafes & bars within 5-10 minute walk. We ate in a different one each nite and enjoyed eveything from Italian to american to Chinese cuisine.
Apartment was very comfortable, clean & spacious. All facilities were at hand and really felt like a home from home. If we had decided to eat in sometime (as was our original plan) there would have been no problem - but choice to eat out, just a walk away was too tempting!
The apartment has two spacious bedrooms though my son bagged the one with the bay window! Lounge was cosy with all ameneties for an enjoyable evening wind down after a hectic schedule. These is satellite TV & music which we were able to record to HDD so not short of entertainment that we wanted to hear or watch. Bathroom & shower superb too!
The property is located on a quiet side street so is very peaceful despite being so near to all the action!
Thoroughly recommend the Muni pass for getting around the city. It offers unlomited travel on a variety of public transport including the famous cable cars!
I could not fault this property for any aspect. Would not hesitate in recommending it.
Location of this property is a key plus factor if you want to be close to all the activities and all main sites are less than 30 mins walk away depending on how fit you are. Hills are steep in San Francisco!
I left my heart here!
What a great place to stay in San Francisco! Close to everything, walking distance to Chinatown, Embarcadero, restaurants, shopping and more. This unit is spacious, clean, light-filled, all modern conveniences, utmost in comfort, safe and secure. Photos are accurate - this unit is lovely.
We had a great stay in this apartment. After a long road trip, we enjoyed having all the comfort that an apartment offers and right in the middle of SF. The location is excellent. We were able to walk to all the major attractions. Only thing we were less happy about were the slightly wornout beds.
loved this place
We would stay here again every trip. The place was clean, comfortable, exactly as described, great location. We loved walking all over SF from here, and the cable car and buses were very close by. Great great place!

Near the heart of it all
Nathalie''s apartment was the perfect home base for a busy family who was looking for comfort, safety, ambiance and an authentic experience. The location was terrific and it was so much fun being able to wonder down the street to a variety of restaurants, Cafe, shops and parks. Even our teen boys loved the apt and area and they can be tough critics.
