About Joe Bender

I am a San Francisco Unified School District Special Ed teacher who has lived in and loved this neighborhood for more than 20 years. Ashley and I enjoy making sure our guests get the most out of their visit and are glad to provide advice and directions as requested by guests. However, we won't intrude, and will wait for your request for help. This is a great location for travelers who love exploring urban environments on foot or using public transportation, which is very close and takes you all over the city.

Joe Bender purchased this apartment in 1986

Why Joe Bender chose Hayes Valley

We bought this property because of the neighborhood. It has a unique mix of walking convenience to all that a big city has to offer, such as music, theater, museums, restaurants and night life, and yet still retains a homey feeling.

What makes this apartment unique

The shops, restaurants, and nightlife of this neighborhood are exciting, dynamic and diverse. There is easy freeway access, and so many famous San Francisco sites within easy walking distance, including Alamo Square, Hayes Valley shopping, Opera Plaza, Symphony Hall, Theaters, Museums, The Castro District, City Hall and so much more. One ritual we enjoy is walking our dog at Alamo Square early in the evening during 'doggie social hour' when the best-behaved dogs play together in the park.

Great two bed place

  • 4 of 5
If you are looking for a great two bed place, easily accessible to downtown, this is a good option. HUGE bathroom, very clean, comfortable beds and a really nicely equipped kitchen. Safeway and the MUNI are just a few blocks away, as well a lot of great places eat in Hayes Valley and Haight street too.

I travel to SF a lot and would very much consider staying here again.

We LOVED your apartment! Conveniently located, exceptionally clean, well equipped, and quite comfortable beds. Although we didn't need anything extra, it was reassuring to know that we could call you or knock upstairs for anything that was needed. We will definitely stay with you if we need a two-bedroom unit again!!!!!

Cute and cozy.

  • 4 of 5
The apartment was true to what the pictures showed, there were no surprises. We had a group of 5 and it accommodated us nicely. There were plenty of towels for showers, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen well stocked. A few things missing: only 1 roll of toilet paper(!), the batteries on the tv's remote control were dead. We found ourselves having to run out for these items on our first day in the apartment. The fuse blew on our third day there. The owner responded in a very timely manner and fixed/ replaced the fuse.
The biggest issue with the apartment was the parking. Since we are not from SF, we didn't realize that the entire neighborhood in which the apartment is located has only 2 hour parking form 9am-9pm. We were hoping to have used public transportation to get around town, but since we couldn't leave our car for more than 2 hours, we were unable to do so. Instead, we were forced to take the car everywhere and pay for parking, which was $20-30 a day, so add this expense in when factoring the cost of the trip.
Overall, the place was nice, but wish we had known about the 2 hour parking.

Fantastic in every way!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived in San Francisco on Thanksgiving day and could not believe the generous hospitality shown by the owner...best pumpkin pie ever!
The flat is part of the most beautiful house and was very neat, tidy and comfortable. As a family with two teenagers we found ample room and bed space (have never seen such a huge bed!) And the small outside space was charming.
Fantastic safe location with plenty of shops, restaurants and bus routes nearby.
We had the best holiday ever in San Francisco and will be back in touch with the owner asap for another booking!
Definitely the accommodation to choose :-)

perfect location

  • 5 of 5
This place was wonderful for our sorry stay in San Fransisco!
Location: let me start by saying the location is perfect. The neighborhood was great, there was numerous 4-5 star yelp reviews restaurants within a 5 minute walk. The famous Alamo park is nearby, as well as many excellent coffee shops. For other touristy spots we used uber which was or first time using it but the best experience!

Parking: we had a rental car which probably wouldn't have gotten one if we hadn't gone to Sonoma for wine tasting. Street parking was available for free but was restricted (2 hour parking between 9am-9pm Monday-Friday). Parking was hard to find after 7pm and used a 24/hour parking garage Saturday night after we got back from Sonoma. However this was to be expected being in a great location and so close to restaurants.

The place: nice, clean, accommodating. The outside of the house is beautiful, as was the inside. Being on a busy street there was traffic noise however our friend who was staying in the room closest to the street had no problem sleeping. However if you are a light sleeper the ruin with the king bed would be best. We felt safe and weren't concerened about the area no matter what time we came back or left. The owner, was wonderful and invited us to come say hi, unfortunately the time we speed by his was out. However he was prompt calling us back if we had a question and was very welcoming. Overall, wonderful experience and would recommend to others!

The perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was perfect for our needs. We were visiting our daughter who lives close by and preparing for a wedding. The apartment is great; good sized two bedroom, fully equipped kitchen and lovely upstairs neighbors! It worked out perfectly for us. The neighborhood is safe with any convenience you would want. Bus stops close by and we had no trouble finding parking on the street most of the time. Thanks! We will visit again.
