Finding an apartment is hard work in San Francisco today. Finding an apartment and making it livable is even more work. So Apartment List has found a way to help! We are partners with RentSFNow, San Francisco’s leading provider of rental apartments, and F2Design, in creating a remarkable San Francisco living experience. And it’s a fully furnished apartment.

Nestled between two historic neighborhoods, the 240 Cumberland building is located just steps from the newly renovated Dolores Park in the Mission District. And a short walk from the Castro District’s doorstep, the hot style of mid-century design keeps you in step with the times. Between the exciting nightlife right around the corner, some of the best taquerias in San Francisco, and the adorable boutique and vintage stores, the neighborhood meets just about every qualification.


240 Cumberland sits on an uphill cul-de-sac street, surrounded by single-family homes and condominiums. It doesn’t hurt that the Mission District is known for being the sunniest neighborhood in San Francisco. From the private balcony of your unit, you can see beautiful views of Dolores Park and Potrero Hill. On a fog-free day, you can see as far as the East Bay.


240 Cumberland is a community within itself. It offers residents amenities such as covered parking, an airy courtyard, and access to Zipcars from the garage. One way RentSFNow sets the building apart is the use of solar panels; the company launched its green program right from 240 Cumberland. And residents will soon be able to access their lease information, pay their rent, and submit a maintenance request using RentSFNow’s convenient online resident services portal.


Have you ever wanted to feel like you are on a perma-vacation, not just a stay-cation? In your own lush landscape? Unit 301 brings the tropics to you, right in San Francisco! Summer-white furniture, wood tones, and a light and airy atmosphere make this apartment an experience. F2Design has brought the outside in by playing with natural elements and plenty of fauna.


A corner unit with wood laminate floors, the furniture provides the perfect accent in shades of white, beige, and blue. An earth-toned, square tile backsplash complements the wood cabinets and granite countertops throughout the kitchen.


Frigidaire appliances — including a dishwasher, electric stove, microwave, and refrigerator — ensure that there will be plenty of cooking done in this apartment (or ordering in and passing off as home-cooked; we won’t tell). Everything from dishes to the all-important and all-too frequently misplaced corkscrew are waiting for you in this kitchen. The living room flows into an extra room that can be used as an entertainment room, an office, or spare bedroom.


White tiled walls and dark grey tiled floors complete the bathroom next to the en-suite laundry room, which features a brand new, energy-efficient LG washer and dryer.


Unit 301 is offered for a minimum three-month stay at $7500 per month. And if you have a furry companion as your roommate, don’t fret. Cats and dogs under 40 pounds are welcome with a two-month deposit.


Don’t spend another moment in a dull hotel. If you want this one-of-a-kind apartment to be yours, give us a shout at 415-754-4737 or email at
