I lived in San Francisco and the Bay Area for over 20 years; Noe Valley has always been one of those quintessential SF neighborhoods that we'd travel to for meeting friends for dinner or drinks, or just window shopping. Having the opportunity to stay in a beautifully maintained and iconic home in this terrific neighborhood was just perfect for us. For a family of 3 with a toddler, this place was ideal. The owners have children (and toys) of their own, and the moment our 3 year old stepped inside, he was immediately right at home playing with legos and exploring the (rare!) private SF backyard; there's even a park with playground on the corner. The 3 of us stayed downstairs and used the upstairs bathtub for him (the downstairs tub/shower is great, but is an extra deep jacuzzi tub that is harder to get a 40lb kid in and out of). The house has great natural light, was clean and quiet, and being able to park in the driveway in a popular neighborhood is crucial. We loved our stay here, and the next time the family comes to visit SF, we'll hope it's available for us again!
