Lovely for a family

  • 5 of 5

It is difficult to find the right place for a family - and this flat hit all the right buttons. Short walk to 24th St for food, little parks nearby, right off the J and a short ride to the amazing Dolores Park playground (and view to boot!), lots of space, equipped for kids (bed rail, crib), quiet neighborhood and a little outdoor space. We loved it!

Great Apartment with good transport into city

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was much nicer than in the pictures. It feels like a small family home with it's big kitchen and cosy sitting room.

There's a couple of outside areas, a free communal laundry room and more self catering equipment than you could possibly need!

The owner was friendly and helpful, booking etc went well. At the time her son was living in the ground floor apartment and he did the 'meet & greet'.

The bus stops at the end of the street and it's a relatively cheap journey into the city. There's parking on the street.

I would recommend the apartment.

Relaxing spot in now valley

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. More than enough room for the 4 of us. The kitchen was excellent. This is great area to base any trip to San Francisco if you don't mind being away from the city centre. Lots of good places to eat in the area, and the mission district is close by as well. I recommend Chloe's cafe for breakfast. Thanks for everything!

Wonderful flat in Noe Valley

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay in this cozy flat in the heart Noe Valley. The kitchen was spacious and well-stocked. Jamie directed us to a wonderful Thai restaurant close by the first evening. We so enjoyed walking the neighborhood - our only regret is that we never did get any of that Mitchell's Ice Cream!

Beds are very comfy and the space was perfect for my daugther and I plus my son and his wife. The kitchen desk was a great place to get some early am work done on the laptop. Stairs to climb in the courtyard so not for those with limited mobility.

Hope to return in a sunnier time and enjoy the outdoor space. Thanks Rae and Jamie for your hosptiality!

A Special Place in Noe Valley

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at your property and found it a most comfortable refuge at the end of the day. The location in Noe Valley, close to restaurants, grocery stores, neighborhood parks, and shopping, was perfectly situated on a quiet residential street.

​W​e appreciated the spacious well-equipped kitchen​, and kept the refrigerator/freezer stocked with drinks, snacks, fruit, restaurant leftovers and, of course, Mitchell's ice cream. A corner of the kitchen held a roomy desk which proved the perfect space to set up our laptop.

The comfortable living room was large enough for a family to relax, play games, or watch TV.

Although we were only two, the apartment sleeps six (two bedrooms and a pull-out couch in the living room). Updated and large, the Jack-and-Jill bathroom was conveniently located between the two bedrooms.

One bonus not to be overlooked was the availability of private outdoor space to relax and unwind.

Thank you, Rae and Jamie, for all your help and for sharing your lovely home with us! We will be back!

Great Long Term Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We thoroughly lucked out finding this lovely and affordable long term rental in San Francisco this summer. Given the challenging housing market, the search for a long term rental was much more difficult than we could have imagined. After reviewing many places, we finally found this charming rental on Duncan St. in Noe Valley. Rae, the owner, made the entire rental process very easy, providing a fully furnished unit that included a washer and dryer, fully stocked kitchen and linens. The kitchen is especially well-sized, making it a nice gathering place and a welcome feature for longer term stays. The neighborhood has lots of fun places to eat within walking distance and there is convenient mass transportation just a few blocks away. We give this rental a very high rating for both unit and owners!
