Make your stay memorable while living in home that is part of San Francisco's architectural history--the beautiful Oakley House. This historic townhouse is in a landmarked 2-unit building built in 1886 located in the Noe Valley neighborhood. Excellent restaurants & shops are a short walk. The townhouse is furnished with style and comfort in mind. There are two upper floor bedrooms; the master bedroom has a working fireplace. The second bedroom has access to a balcony and deck with views of Twin Peaks. The upper story bathroom has a shower glass by artist Dorothy Lenehan. A study has a comfortable sofa & flat screen TV. The first floor has 11' ceilings and tall arched windows. The living room and dining room each have a marble fireplace. There is access to a small garden & deck with potted lemon trees from the gourmet kitchen. Antiques & modern furnishings offer beauty & comfort. Garage available. Cheese, wine, fresh produce & some of San Francisco's best fresh bread is just a stroll away.
Owners are husband and wife who live in the same building (the building is two townhouses).
Mark Anderson purchased this condo in 1994
My wife and I stayed for a full month at the Oakley house and we couldn't have asked for a better place, nor for a better location. We were already quite familiar with the Noe Valley, Valencia corridor and upper Mission areas from previous rentals in various other houses. But this one took the entire experience up by several notches! The house is exactly as gorgeous as it looks on the exterior pictures. That much-sought-after victorian cachet is all over it. And the interior of the house is actually more impressive than what the pictures lead to expect. There is a lot of room; everything has been thought trough to make the visitor feel right at home form the get go. All amenities are in perfect working order (the stove and fridge almost felt like they were brand new). The place is clean throughout. Mark and Kim, the landlords, are living next door so they are easy to contact for questions, etc. They have proven to be helpful and flexible with the little headaches caused by our cheque payment from a Canadian bank institution ;) And last but not least: there is a garage available for a reasonable extra cost. If you have a car, I would strongly recommend you use it. Parking in the area is hard to find!
All in all, we found Oakley house to be THE perfect place to stay in San Francisco.
My husband & I are long-time San Francisco residents. We needed a short-term rental due to construction delays with a home we'd purchased. We chose the Fair Oaks rental because of: 1) its location (my husband once lived one block from the Oakley House; it's hard to beat this neighborhood for weather, amenities, walkability, access to public transit and convenient, central location); 2) the availability of off-street parking (parking anyway in the City can be very difficult; we wouldn't even consider a place without off-street parking); and 3) the photos (we were exhausted, and needed a relaxing retreat).
Oakley House exceeded our expectations. The home is beautiful, and has been lovingly restored by the current owners. The rental unit was actually the owner's unit at one point, so the finishes are much nicer than one normally finds in a short-term rental, even a high-end one. The unit is quiet, well-equipped and comfortably furnished. We did not have much interaction with the owners, but they were welcoming, pleasant and helpful. All in all, we had a delightful stay, and would recommend this property without hesitation. We would stay here again if the need arises.
We had a lovely stay at this house. It was a great setup for our family with 2 children; we had plenty of space to spread out. The house is beautiful and in impeccable condition. It's very comfortable for a month-long stay - well-stocked kitchen, plenty of storage, nice linens, etc. The location can't be beat - short walks to Noe Valley, the Mission, BART, and the Muni rail. Mark and Kim are wonderful hosts, and we hope to return!
We stayed in Oakley house for nearly a month, and it surpassed our expectations in every way! Mark and Kim were gracious hosts to a home they restored with love. The location was superb, and it's proximity to Valencia street and the Muni made it possible for us to stay without needing to rent a car. Though we were only steps from all the action, the street where the house is located is quiet, residential, tree-lined. Dolores Park was also just a few blocks away! My husband and I both enjoyed the selection of books in the library, the patio deck and aforementioned sun-flooded bathroom! We cannot recommend a stay in Oakley house enough. It is extremely well priced for it's location and size.
I would highly recommend this place. Beautiful home and you cant beat the location. Only blocks from Muni Train and Bart so easy to get around. But no need to go far. Lots of great restaurants, bars, markets etc nearby. Great neighborhood and sunnier here than other parts of city. Hosts are super nice and extremely helpful. Stay Here And Have Fun!
Some call it the sunny banana belt; others call it the doughnut hole, but our San Francisco neighborhood managed to escape the famous cat crawling fog on 24 of the 26 days we have been here in August. On the corner of a quiet tree lined street in Noe Valley, two blocks from beautiful Delores Park, and minutes to some of the best price-performing fooderies in the Mission stands the perfect abode, complete with all the amenities and comforts of home. The spacious apartment is beautifully appointed, and Kim and Mark have been wonderfully accomodating. We rented bikes for the month, and we have combed this place - what a quality way to see a city! We sadly have three days left here, but we look forward to returning soon to our new home away from home.
