The 25 Best Airbnbs in San Francisco – For Couples & Groups

San Francisco holds a special place in our hearts for its incredible art and museums, pretty parks, buzzing restaurants, shops and nightlife. We lived in San Francisco for just shy of a decade, including meeting when Matt first moved to the city, and moving in together for three years in beautiful Nob Hill before quitting our jobs to travel the world and leaving the city behind. in this guide we want to introduce you to some of the best Airbnbs in San Francisco to help you find the perfect place to stay for your trip.

Nob Hill San Francisco Views

Whether you’re staying in San Francisco for a week or a month, there’s plenty to see and do in this forward-thinking metropolis. In fact, we lived in SF for almost a decade, and still haven’t done everything the city has to offer!

There’s Pier 39 and Fisherman’s Wharf for tourists, which we recommend spending as little time in as possible on your San Francisco itinerary. Because beyond those tourist havens, you’ll find beautiful Golden Gate Park for those seeking a quiet escape from the crowds, the largest Chinatown in the United States, and the fabulous Painted Ladies which have featured in so many TV shows and movies.

You can drive along the crooked, hairpin bends of Lombard Street, enjoy lively entertainment in the Castro neighborhood, explore the foodie haven that is the Mission, or take a cruise across the bay to Alcatraz Island.
