Overview

San Francisco Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 2 Floors in Beautiful Edwardian (Sleeps 4-6)

Looking for a private, spacious, comfortable and tasteful home away from home? Want to wake up every morning looking out on a beautiful garden that will make you feel like you're in the middle of a spectacular park?

Come stay in our furnished two bedroom apartment in the neighborhood voted Most Desirable in San Francisco! It's on two stories with a full kitchen and two bathrooms. The top level has an open floor plan with an inviting wrap around sectional sofa, flat screen TV, dining area that seats six, fully stocked kitchen with updated appliances, gas range, sliding glass doors that enter onto a full porch that runs the length of the building. Windows and the deck look out onto a private, colorful dense garden and koi pond. An easy to use gas grill and two sunny and private outdoor seating areas provide additional entertainment space.

The bottom floor has two bedrooms each with a queen sized bed and flat screen TV and DVD player and walk-in closets. One room has a desk that's ideal for a quiet workspace. The master bedroom is connected to its own private bathroom. Sliding glass doors open directly onto a hand crafted stone patio that leads to the garden.

Enjoy our outdoor ping pong table, wireless internet throughout, and detailed personalized visitors' guide with all kinds of recommendations for our wonderful Noe Valley neighborhood and throughout San Francisco as well.

There is plenty of easy on street parking on our block. No permits required.

Friendly, but very respectful owners live upstairs. The apartment is a fully separate unit and you will have your own private entrance. The apartment is perfect for anyone who wants to enjoy the comforts of home while visiting one of the best cities in the world. And Noe Valley is truly a remarkable neighborhood. Many independent, locally owned stores and outstanding restaurants, lots of personality, charming cafes, good parks for kids, a Whole Foods grocery store within easy walking distance. Enjoy our vibrant local farmer's market on Saturday mornings.

Our location is perfect for easy access to public transportation that can take you downtown, over to the Castro (which is also an easy walk), or across the Bay. Heading to Silicon Valley? The Google bus stops very close to us!

We feel completely safe walking around the neighborhood any time of day or night. It's a really special part of San Francisco.

Ideal for romantic getaway, families, friends get together, business trips, grandparents visiting their kids in SF -- really just about anyone who wants a delightful place to hang out -- both inside and in the garden -- that's easy to get to downtown, but quiet enough to hear the birds and sleep well.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2004

Why The Owner chose San Francisco

Noe Valley is sunny, progressive, family friendly, and has a really vibrant personality. Located in the heart of San Francisco, it has bakeries and cafes, jazz bars, ice cream and gelato, Whole Foods grocery, cool clothing stores, interesting gift shops, great bookstores, fabulous restaurants. And it's a hop, skip, and jump from the rest of the city, which has endless, diverse attractions and people to explore.

What makes this apartment unique

We're on the same block as a community park, complete with a tennis court, basketball and a new state- of-the-art toddlers' play area. We're just around the corner from Firefly and Contigo, fantastic restaurants you won't want to miss. A few blocks away there is another playground for older children. A new fun coffee shop, recently opened on the corner.

Wonderful apartment in a great neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

What a weekend! There aren't too many rentals which match the pictures exactly but this one did. We got exactly what we expected which was a comfortable, clean, relaxing apartment with all of the comforts of home. I could not have asked for more. My only regret was that our stay was so short, only 3 days. We definitely could have used a few more days...we did not want to leave! The garden, patio, and deck were absolutely fantastic and the perfect place to sit and relax with a glass of wine. The beds were sumptuous, the decor was simple and chic (very city), the kitchen was well-equipped, which made it very easy to fall into that vacation vibe. Getting around on public transit was also a breeze, as was grocery shopping (Whole Foods within walking distance) and restaurants. The street is hilly, but this is San Francisco, after all! For me that was the best part. I will definitely keep this place in mind for the next time and thank you for such a wonderful stay!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We visited SF for 10 days which included a girl friend reunion first 5 days then our family celebrating sons graduation Last part of visit. What a perfect place to stay to see the a local community of the city plus the sights and scenic views or just enjoying quiet time relaxing with friends. There was a complete book of details given to transportation, to sights to see and how to use all electronics etc. The kitchen was one of the best stocked we have been too and the cute patio and outdoor garden was very inviting. We felt right at home and never had a need to contact owners since everything was at our finger tips. We did experience one night some loud noises coming from upstairs but that can happen which was only once. We are from Michigan and lived in Bay Area for over 35 years so know the city pretty well. Just be aware the home is on a hill and I new this but our daughter, who needs a helping hand because of balance problems, did find it challenging at times. Not a negative at all because the city is hilly but just wanted to mention. Over all had a great time and would highly recommend this home away from home to everyone.

Great little home.

  • 4 of 5

Overall experience was great. A few comments; the crib/playpen smelled of mildew at first so we had to air it out and let it sit in the sun for awhile before we could let our son sleep in it. Also had this problem with some of the blankets kept in the closet. Couch was super cozy, great little garden in the back, fantastic neighborhood! Owners were very kind and promptly helpful, we needed a gate for the stairs for our 2 year old and they quickly made sure one was setup for us. Great DVD collection provided by home owners, lots of privacy but yet you are right in town. We had a great time and would recommend this home to anyone. Thanks for the great stay! :)

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great time at our place! Thanks for letting us know about the crib and the blankets in the closet.. We realized that neither had been used for a very long time so they definitely needed some airing out. We've now gone through the apartment extra carefully and made sure everything is fresh again. We look forward to welcoming you back next time you come to San Francisco.

The property was clean and well furnished.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in San Francisco and were impressed with the property and everything it has to offer. We enjoyed the patio and outdoor seating and there was plenty of space to visit with our family that we were visiting. We would stay here again if we make a trip to San Francisco in the furture.

Great Apartment, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Our group really enjoy our stay in San francisco and it was largely down to the wonderful accommodation. Very clean throughout. The kitchen/living area was great with all amenities required. We cooked our own breakfast and even had a BBQ on the final evening. Great location in the quiet area of Noe Valley. Some great little cafes there. I couldn't recommend this apartment enough and Debra was great to deal with. Very prompt with her replies to any questions we had.

Thanks Again,

Paul.
