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?

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.

About The Owner

Your hosts are a friendly, professional lesbian couple, both artists—one is a glass sculptor, the other a documentary filmmaker. We have the best chocolate Labrador in the world.

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.

Fabulous property!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing, comfortable stay in Noe Valley. This home is even more amazing than advertised ... a total find. Convenient location, beautiful backyard oasis, incredibly comfy beds, easy parking. I would say it's an ideal location for 3 to 4 adults. We had five adults and one person had to stay on the pullout in the living room, which might be better suited for kids, in terms of comfort. Two downstairs bedrooms share a bathroom and two sink areas. Another full bath on level with kitchen and living room. Very pleased with our stay!!!!

The Best Homebase Ever

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four wanted to experience San Francisco from the perspective of the people who live there. So when we found this place in one of the nicest neighborhood in the city, there was no turning back. We were able to get around easily using public transportation from this location which was always within walking distance. The shops and restaurants on 24th provided a great distraction and a delicious bite to eat. The place was a perfect retreat from busy days exploring the city. Our children enjoyed watching TV in their room to relax before bed, plus it was a treat for Mom and Dad as well. The kitchen had everything we needed to make a few meals ourselves. We were completely satisfied with our stay here, and would highly recommend it to others.

This home was absolutely stunning. My friends and I had an amazing time the second we walked in the door. The house looks exactly like the pictures and the backyard is even more beautiful in person. There was a big binder for us with so much information like recommendations and directions. The beds were so soft we were trying to find out the mattress brand haha. Checking in/out was super easy and stress free. The kitchen is fully stocked, perfect for when we cooked breakfast every morning. The location was great 1 block from public transportation and very close to the scenic twin peaks. The hills in San Fran are no joke be prepared to get a calve workout if you plan to walk a lot.

This was a lovely place and I would come stay again and recommend to everyone. You can tell that the owners really give the welcome home feeling for their guest.

Great Location, Beautiful Flat, Well Appointed Home Away from Home.

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I travelled from Southern California to celebrate my birthday. The flat is located in a lovely neighborhood. Shops, restaurants and public transportation is nearby and within walking distance. The flat was exactly as described, nicely decorated, very clean, comfortable beds and appropriate amenities. Beautiful garden in the back yard, lovely view. Only draw back was the musty smell in the bedrooms. The bedrooms are located on the basement level and walk out to the back yard. I understand that do to the amount of rain this past winter, they experienced some issues. It takes a little time for this to resolve so I fully understand why the odor. I would expect this problem to resolve with a little dry weather. Otherwise the home is perfect.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much and so glad you enjoyed. Yes, the rains this year were torrential and we have a little bit of dry rot -- working with our contractor right now to get it all cleaned up and refreshed!

Great location but damp/musty in basement

  • 3 of 5

The location was great, nice area, and local amenities. The negative was the damp, almost musty basement, where the bedrooms are. Came home and everything in suitcase is damp and smells musty. The upstairs living area did not have the same odour, just the basement. The instructions said to strip beds and start laundry when we left. Since leaving the house at 5 am to catch an 8:30 flight, felt a biit like inconsiderate neighbours starting laundry and hauling out the garbage (to the difficult to squeeze into trash cans), at 5 am. Enjoyed a local Thai restaurant, Sushi restaurant, and chocolate shop. Was a quiet neighbourhood and we made out fine with parking.

Owner's Response: Ah, the heavy rains this year have created some dampness. We are working now with our contractor to address and it will be better soon. Also, we're afraid you misunderstood the departure instructions! We only ask guests to strip the beds. No need to start laundry or to take the garbage out. Guess it was that early departure morning fog. Take care.
