It's quite clear that the San Francisco rental market is hot hot hot right now, so here at Curbed we're going to bring you a bevy of rental properties each week for your perusal -- one in each price range for budget, middle-of-the-road, and luxury. Today we take a look around North Beach and Telegraph Hill -- nabes with low inventory and crazy beautiful views.
Budget: This one-bedroom is right in the middle of the action at Grant and Green — home to North Beach bars and delicious pizza. It's $1,800, which is about as low as it gets for this neck of the woods, but is a true one bedroom with an eat-in kitchen and a small living room. There's no laundry or parking, but storage is available. While it's on the small side, it looks clean and well maintained. There's also only a shower, which for some people is a pro because bathtubs take up a lot of space and are a pain to clean. This apartment is basic, but the location is awesome for those who are looking to be in thick of the neighborhood. [craiglist]
Mid-Range: This one bedroom for $2,195 comes to us from Vallejo St. — even closer to the Fi-Di from general walking to work awesomeness, and, best of all, there's a pool for these lovely days we've been having. Parking is — get this — included, there's laundry in the building, and there's onsite management and maintenance for when you blow a fuse by trying to use a blender next to the pool. we're in love a little (or a lot) with the actual apartment — hardwood, light and bright, and a cozy fireplace for non-pool days.

Luxury: This apartment is actually on Telegraph Hill, so while you'll have views and parrots, you'll be a little bit further away from the action. For $3,000 per month, you get an updated apartment with newer appliances, granite counters, and a dishwasher. The hardwood floors look great, as does the wood-burning fireplace to take in bay views for when we aren't Sparing the Air. As for the building, parking is available, laundry is on site, and there's a shared roof deck with views. You're super close to the Filbert Street Steps, so entertain tourists and your legs alike with all of that awesomeness. [craiglist]
