Before we arrived the owner, Mark provided immediate assistance with information and details regarding his home. He was very pleasant and welcoming which added to the wonderful experience of vacationing in San Francisco. The layout of the home was perfect! We had ample room and privacy. Not to mention the view from the master suite, unbelievable. I woke up to birds singing and a beautiful sunrise every morning. The Zen backyard/deck was a perfect place to sit and chat with friends and it offered a great place to meditate or to cook on the grill. The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils and every convenience for cooking. This home was immaculate and well furnished. What really made our experience grand, was that the owner had offered us fresh fruit and vegetables that were delivered during our stay (never had that luxury before) which in our opinion was extremely generous. This home is conveniently located and so much so that we didn't mind using public transportation at all. It was very affordable and easy to access. My daughter had a few venues scheduled and the location of Zen Noe Valley helped me to feel relaxed knowing that she would be safe and close by. In addition, we were able to visit the city's attractions, the Wharf, Haight and Ashbury, China Town, Groceries Stores , restaurants etc all within 15-20 minutes of each other. I particularly liked that because we surely did not waste time on the road. Such a beautiful city and I appreciate that we were able to view the city lights and architecture right from the second and third floor windows. Amazing! I highly recommend Zen Noe Valley and I will definitely stay here again during my next visit.
