Stay High Above the Rooftops of San Francisco’s Noe Valley

$800.00 weekly, 1 Week minimum stay, $2300.00 monthly., Sleeps 2. Unfortunately, I am not able to accommodate children.

You'll love this sunny, cozy rooftop studio like room in the quiet San Francisco neighborhood of Noe Valley. You will have a panoramic view all the way from Twin Peaks to the San Francisco Bay. Today, Noe Valley is one of San Francisco’s most desirable residential areas full of Victorian homes, shops, restaurants and easy public transportation access, all in one of the sunniest parts of The City.

Watch the fog hover over Twin Peaks as you have your morning coffee as the warm sun shines through your windows on three sides. Warm comfortable bed, cable TV and wireless Internet access. Half-bath with a wonderful tiled shower, wet-bar with large sink and small refrigerator. You will be provided with everything you need to make simple meals with the microwave, electric burning and toaster oven. Linen and towels provided.

This beautiful rooftop hideaway, with its own access through a side passageway and up a back staircase. Must be able to negotiate stairs since access is up a circular staircase of 43 steps.

You will be in walking distance to restaurants and Noe Valley’s 24th Street shops, or you can catch the J-Church MUNI line just a block away that will give you direct access not only to the environs of Noe Valley, but to the Castro, Dolores Park and downtown San Francisco for the Cable Cars and Union Square all the way to the Embarcadero. BART is just a short 10-minute walk away.

Parking is on the street. A washer and dryer are available on the premises.

Please let me know where you are coming from if you are interested in my rooftop sunroom.

Why Dana L. Rees chose San Francisco

What makes this studio unique

San Francisco is a city of neighborhoods and Noe Valley is one of the nicest. It is in a part of The City that the sun shines brightly when much of the rest of San Francisco is in the Fog. It is a neighborhood where you walk! Walk to the shops and stores on 24th St., or find wonerful restaurants just blocks away on Church St. Walk to a cheese store, meat market, or take in the Saturday morning Farmers' Market. Walk in any direction and you will find a coffee shop where you can sit and relax enjoying your tea or coffee.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a lovely couple from the East Coast that has given me one of the most detailed reviews so far. They were great to have as guests and I appreciate their comments. I learned about a walking tour in San Francisco from them that I will take myself and recommend to my guests. All houses have idiosyncrasies and since this is a room in my home that was build in 1922 it has a couple as this review points out. I let my guest know about them upfront. And, there is a basin in the room. I think this is one of the most honest and truthful reviews, I know any future guests would be delighted staying in my rooftop sunroom as you can see in my guests reviews. It was a pleasure to have this couple as my guests.

San Francisco Sun Room

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little spot on the 4th floor of an old San Francisco residence. Forty-three steps to the top but once you are there the view is fantastic! This is a cozy, very clean and tidy room that has everything you need. It is close to BART and Noe Valley shops and dining as well as the Mission area. Dana, your host, will give you a warm welcome and be very helpful. This was my second stay in the Sunroom and I am sure I will want to come back again.

I had a wonderful stay in the Rooftop Sunroom! Dana was available anytime I had a question and gave me a hearty welcome and orientation when I arrived! I happen to hit a rainy spell in SF, first one in a dozen trips there since moving back to NJ in 1996. Despite the weather, the room was filled with bright light every single day! The windows and views all around were magnificent! The place was very clean and cozy, had everything I could ask for, and looked newly updated! The shower was beautiful! It was wonderful to stay in my old neighborhood, Noe Valley, with my favorite brunch spot, Chloe's right at the corner! And with so much rain, it was very handy having the little coffee shop across the street for my morning wake-up! I would highly recommend the Sunroom! I am already planning my next visit out and can't wait to stay there once again! Feels like home!

I had the pleasure of staying in Dana's Sunroom in San Francisco. The pictures you see on the site, and Dana's description of his place are very accurate, and you will find the room exactly as you see it. Everything was very clean and well kept by Dana, the owner. He is very helpful upon arrival and throughout your stay if you should need him. He will give you the lay of the land and other pertinent information you may need to enhance your visit.Dana's place is very convenient to public transportation, and there are several local establishments on 24th St., which is within walking distance. There are also some restaurants on Church St. which is even closer. I did not have a car on my visit. The neighborhood is very nice and clean. Upon departure, Dana allowed me to wait with him until my ride arrived, which was very nice. You will get your exercise on the steps reaching the sunroom, but that did not bother me. Dana is very clear about that on his site including pictures. There was a problem with the shower in the beginning of my stay , and Dana had a plumber come to check it out.I had a very nice time staying in Dana's Sunroom and enjoyed meeting him. I would stay there again. Thanks, Dana.

Great place to stay in SF

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent a week in San Francisco and thoroughly enjoyed it. Dana's sunroom was ideal for us. It was clean and the location, in a neighborhood that was quiet, where the people were friendly, and that felt very safe to walk around in, was just what we wanted. Within easy walking distance were some restaurants and a Whole Foods market, as well as small shops and convenience stores. We particularly liked Casa Mexicana on Church St. for fresh, tasty Mexican food. We had no need to rent a car, preferring to use public transportation. The nearest MUNI stop is within a 5 minute walk and connects to any part of the city you would want to visit. Buying a CityPass or a weekly MUNI pass makes it economical as well. And as the weekly rate for the rental was so reasonable, much cheaper than staying in a downtown hotel, more money could be spent on enjoying the many activities available in the bay area. We particularly enjoyed visiting Muir Woods, the Coit Tower, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz (on a night tour, which is less crowded than ones during the day), and ATT Park for a Giants game. I highly recommend, if you are able to handle the walking, the Real SF tour, which, between walking and using public transportation, is a day-long, small-group guided tour of many neighborhoods and sites in the city. We took it on our first day and as it was so informative about the history of the city and it's various neighborhoods, helped us greatly during the remainder of our stay to make use of the MUNI easier, to appreciate the diversity of the city, and to help us decide which neighborhoods and attractions we wanted to explore further.

During our stay Dana was the perfect host, helpful and concerned that our visit was going smoothly. He was always available if needed but in no way intrusive. To be fair with this review, there are a few, small quirks about the sunroom that we had to adjust to but they were quite minor, namely no sink in the bathroom and no available freezer/ice maker if you wanted ice cubes for a drink. And as Dana makes everyone well aware in his listing, there is the 43-step, twisty flight of stairs that must be climbed to reach the sunroom. We are both in our mid-50s and while it is certainly navigable, it does require some care doing so. But again, to us these were all minor inconveniences and we would definitely stay here again if we were to return to San Francisco. Thanks for everything Dana--we had a great vacation!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this wonderful sunroom for a little over a week. This sunroom is just perfect for a couple looking to experience San Francisco like locals. We took Uber most of the times as well as the MUNI. The MUNI is located literally down the block from the sunroom. The sunroom is located far enough for relaxation and close enough to the fun part of San Francisco. The MUNI will drop you off in the middle of the city or if you decide to take Uber it will only take about 15 minutes.

In regards to the owner Dana Rees, he was wonderful and very attentive to us. He made sure we were comfortable, took time to talk about San Francisco and what to do and took care of our luggage.

If we decide to go back to San Francisco I would choose to stay in this sunroom again. !!
