It is centrally located, a stone’s throw from Noe Valley’s 24th Street, the Castro, and the hip Valencia/Guerrero/Mission Street corridor.

The flat is conveniently located close to all modes of transportation, including the J Church Muni line 1-block away and freeways 101 and 280 (including 3 “zip car locations”). It is a short distance to hip gourmet restaurants, shopping and Whole Foods, Bi-Rite Grocery and Mollie Stone’s gourmet food markets. The flat is fantastic for families and couples because of the layout; bedrooms are on opposite ends of the condo and there is an incredible amount of space.

The front bedroom boasts a queen-size bed and the rear master-suite has a king-size bed. There is a sitting/dressing room off of the master-suite for additional comfort.

About The Owner

I've lived in San Francisco over 25 years and currently work as a Realtor. I love my work as it allows me to explore the historical nature of our City and meet a diverse range of clientele. I chose to join the VRBO network as a way of sharing a piece of my home with visitors who come to San Francisco, who also want to experience one of the most beatiful cities in the world with a touch of local flair.

In addition to renting the unit, we are always available to answer any questions and share our local expertise on good eats, fun nightlife and local hot spots.

Cheers,

Alan

The Owner purchased this condo in 1999

Why The Owner chose Castro District

Prior to living in Dolores Park, I lived in the Marina, Pacific Heights and South of Market. Dolores Park is by far my favorite neighborhood. Not only is it sunny and warm most of the time, there is a ton of 'local color.' There is no shortage of gourmet restuarants and markets, cafes, hip boutiques and you are only a short distance from downtown via muni. Highways 101 and 280 are also easily accessible.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is located in one of the most desirable areas of Dolores Heights...you could not be in a better location! You are walking distance to Dolores Park, the Castro, Noe Valley's 24th Street and the hip Valencia Street Cooridor. The SF Muni is one block away and you will be downtown in less than 15 minutes.

Great apt in SF

  • 5 of 5
We just came back from a five-day stay in this apartment - one of the best vacation rental experiences ever. First of all, the apartment is BEAUTIFUL. It's tastefully decorated, clean, had great towels and sheets, and had very comfortable beds. Well-stocked kitchen. The pictures on the website are pretty accurate. Second, it is actually very quiet - a pleasant surprise. Third, the location is great - Bi-Rite, Tartine, and Delfina are very close. Lastly, the landlord was very responsive. Very prompt with addressing our questions. By the way, for those of you thinking of having a car and worried about not having on-site parking - we had a car and parking was not an issue at all. We managed to park within a block from the apartment every night (and whenever we needed to during the day). Just make sure to keep track of the street cleaning days and it should be no problem. I cannot think of one thing that is wrong with this place. Thanks, Alan!

Perfect stay in perfect location

  • 5 of 5
This lovely property exceeded all of our expectations. Located a block away from scenic Mission Delores Park, a great place to relax, people-watch and enjoy our Bi-Rite ice creams. Italian favorites Delfina and Farina are close by. We indulged ourselves daily at nearby Tartine Bakery - the best bread we have ever tasted. Just a few blocks walk to reach Noe Valley and Mission/Valencia shopping and eateries. There is no need for a car to get around - the J line stops only a block away. The owner was very friendly, professional and easy to communicate with. The home was updated, super clean and very spacious, with an abundance of natural lighting. We particularly enjoyed the view downhill toward the city from the front windows at night. The kitchen was well supplied, and we enjoyed eating breakfast and sipping tea on the outdoor patio. The mattresses and linens were of excellent quality allowing us a great night's sleep. We would highly recommend this property and look forward to staying here again in the future.

Excellent location, lovely townhome, very convenient. The place was clean and well stocked with linens and cooking utensils. Easy communication with owner. Wicked hill, but not a negative. The view is worth the hill.

Adorable Apartment - didn't want to leave

Adorable Apartment - didn't want to leave
  • 5 of 5
The apartment absolutely blew me away; it was gorgeously decorated, very clean, and ready for us upon arrival. It was in a residential area however, so we did need to be mindful of our neighbors. It was great to get a feel for the neighborhood and pretend like you were a resident. The closest BART was a 15 minute walk and there are some hills to contend with but it didn't take long to figure out the easiest way. Overall a great place to stay that allows you to truly relax!

Best Staycation ever

  • 5 of 5
I already live in San Francisco, but decided to stay in a new neighborhood w friends for a Staycation. Very happy we did! The apartment is beautiful, and convenient both to the Muni and to the BART, as well as to the great restaurants and cafes the Mission has in such abundance. Despite the convenient location the apartment is very quiet. And the owner was extremely gracious and helpful throughout the process. Definitely a wonderful choice.

DOES WHAT IS SAYS ON THE TIN!

  • 5 of 5
stayed here with a girlfriend who had never been to the USA before. She was overwhelmed by the friendliness of the Americans, and we were both made to feel very welcome by the owner. The description of the location is accurate and the property was spotless. The photos accurately reflect the apartment's appearance, in fact, it was even better in the real. The beds were so comfortable and the bedlinen was exceptional, as were the quantity and quality of towels etc in the bathroom. I have already recommended SFVacationabode to friends and family visiting San Francisco.
