We have only positive things to say about this rental and the owners. My 16 year-old niece and I stayed here in August 2014 and had positive experiences from the start. Jane and Mark are very communicative, from my first inquiry into the rental, to answering any questions I had prior and during our visit. They answered emails, phone calls and texts promptly and were willing to go above and beyond to meet our needs. For example, the first evening in the home I asked Jane if she had a fan we would use, and the very next day Jane brought to the house two new oscillating fans for our bedrooms. Not only was this gesture above and beyond my expectations, the fans provided lovely white noise and cooler temps as we slept (making for a great night's sleep for us both!) The house itself is beautiful; it is modernly decorated, clean, well-appointed, and overall very comfortable and cozy. Our favorite aspects of the home were most definitely the "back" area of the house- which includes an open, roomy and airy kitchen, dining room, living room, wet bar and french doors opening to the patio. I agree with previous reviewers that the home is larger and more spacious that it looks in the photos. Additionally, having our own washer/dryer in a large laundry room was another of my favorite perks! (Jane- add a photo of this to your listing!) The home was stocked well with toiletries, including larger-than-life bottles of shampoo and shower gel, as well as cleaning supplies, towels, dish cloths, laundry and dish detergent. Being a cook, I was pleased to see large bottles of extra virgin olive oil and very delicious aged balsamic vinegar, as well as a variety of spices. A large bag of dark roast coffee, tea bags and all the coffee and tea add-ins you would need were available too (including a coffee maker and tea kettle!) There were lots of dishes, a full array of kitchen utensils for baking, cooking and more. While we only stayed 4 days, this place is great for those staying longer and cooking lots of meals. The bedrooms were roomy and comfortable, with extra blankets and pillows, and there were plenty of family boardgames and even toys for little ones. Finally, this was my third visit to SF and there is no need for a car. The J-Church is just a few blocks away, Whole Foods just a 10-minute (or less) walk, Safeway, lots of cute shops and boutiques. Do it SF style and get a MUNI pass! Overall, I can't say enough about this home, Jane and Mark, and Noe Valley. Thank you!
