Well located, cozy, outstanding host
It would be hard to find a more well located, more pleasant host, cozy spot in Noe Valley. Grocery stores, walking distance, 24th street with shops, boutiques, cafes, antiques stores just a mile away. We always found parking- either on the same street as the unit, or even late Saturday night a short block away. The quiet was amazing. No one above us, very quiet neighborhood, yet right in the middle of things. Altho the unit was attached to a home we never heard a peep from anyone. Beautiful courtyard below the unit. Our host made every effort to be sure all was readied for our stay- insured that we would find the home as well as entrance even for late evening arrival. It would be difficult to find another place to stay for a visit to SF for the fee charged- access to kitchen, and very well equipped. Just a few complaints that would not stop us from returning but would make us consider a larger unit in Noe valley with a sofa. The bed upstairs in the loft is a futon, uncomfortable for us, but surely fine for others. We are in our 50's and 60's and a little hard to rise from. There were two pillows but they were a bit flat and uncomfortable. Maybe four fluffy pillowsj for getting comfortable as there is no other place to relax and read.The towels in the bathroom were older and mismatched. There is no living room, no sofa or comfortable chair to sit and read if you are staying more than a day or two and want to just relax. There is a wooden rocking chair and dining room table chairs but they are hard and uncomfortable. The unit was very clean and comfortable however, with coffee press, and everything needed to prepare a meal.
Overall we enjoyed our stay, and the price for the amenities was phenomenal. Our personal preference would be next time to stay in a place with a little more elbow room. You could not ask for a kinder, more diligent and perfectionist host, but we were never bothered by a single soul during our stay. (There is a small cottage in the rear of the home, but a goodly distance away. Never heard the occupant passing.)
Noe Valley is a quiet, safe, interesting, center of things place to make your home base in SF. This cute little unit is a perfect spot for exploring and crashing at the end of the day. Thanks very much to our kind host.
Owner's Response: The studio was furnished by and for our in-laws who are all in their 70's; they have been very comfortable and like the bed, chairs and pillows. However, we understand the reviewers concerns and have upgraded the several details. We now have a new bed and a more comfortable chair for relaxing and new pillows and linens. We are gratified the reviewer appreciated our exceptional price, great location, well equipped kitchen and cleanliness.
