Nice and quiet location but close enough to everything

  • 5 of 5

Nicely appointed house in a quiet neighborhood but still close enough for a quick walk to shops, coffee, markets and food. House has lots of amenities that made it feel like home and a much better experience than a hotel.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Overall the stay was wonderful. The house had everything we needed and was in a location that was easily accessible to everything we wanted to see. There were restaurants and a grocery store within walking distance. The owners were very accommodating and responded to all our questions quickly.

Feels like Home

  • 5 of 5

Kamala's home was lovely and very comfortable to stay at. She made sure you felt right at home. She was quick to communicate any questions or concerns. Her home was very clean and stocked with all the essentials necessary for a comfortable stay. We met a few of the neighbors that were very helpful with directions and navigating the area. The pictures of what you see are exactly what you will get, clean, comfortable and stylish. My kids liked the playroom too! I would recommend her home. Thank you for a lovely stay. Jill L.

Beautiful San Francisco home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the pleasure to stay at this beautiful San Francisco home during our 2016 summer vacation. The home was clean, charming and open. We loved the large windows facing the side yard and hot tub. The backyard was a peaceful timeout with the water feature, rocking chair and trees/plants. We had everything we needed and wanted. Staying in Noe Valley worked out perfectly. There was a Safeway, restaurants and the Bart within walking distance. We had rented a car as well so we made use of the garage and did not find the famous sites (Golden Gate Park, Fishermans Wharf, Chinatown, etc) to be a hassle to get to (the city parking is another story...) My 10 year old daughter loved the bunk beds and the play room was an extra bonus! This house has a good vibe! We highly recommend!

Lovely central location for San Francisco!

  • 5 of 5

This felt like we were at home. We immediately got into our normal routines for breakfast and when the kids had to wait for us, they had games to play. Short walks to great food and superb ice cream. Garage for our rental car so we could do everything we wanted in an easy day! The owner was easy to work with and it just felt like we borrowed a friends lovely home. Thanks Kamala!

Great house. Great location

  • 5 of 5

We live nearby but chose to rent this house for a weekend in the city. The house was exactly as depicted on the web. We quickly adapted to being in someone's home (vs a house in a rental program), but that was a little different. The owner obviously made huge efforts to move many personal items out and make space for us. They also had clear signage for how to operate electronics, the garage, etc.

The owner was very accommodating with timelines and responsiveness. I recommend the house.

San Francisco is an extraordinary city as it is a peninsula offering access to the bay and ocean. Windsurfing, surfing, fishing, whale watching, and sun bathing are available along our shores, with a beautiful historic city at the center.

Enjoy lovely restaurants, bars and entertainment right in Noe valley and the Mission district, or grab the MUNI or BART to head downtown to China Town, North Beach and Telegraph hill for exquisite sites and sounds. Bike riding along the Pacific Hwy. or hiking the Lands End Trail north of Hwy. 1 are lovely sites accessible by MUNI. Golden Gate Park has the Academy of Sciences, The DeYoung Art Museum, the Botanical Gardens, The Conservatory of Flowers, the Japanese Tea Garden, Stowe Lake with the paddle boats, and so much more to enjoy! All accessible by MUNI.

Closer to our home is Valencia street; venture out on foot to find the best local cuisine, bars and entertainment in the city. Lovely cafes and shops with a farmer's market just blocks away on 24th Street.

Have a car? Head over the Golden Gate Bridge and enjoy the National Parks and State Parks of Marin. Or head south down 280 to Rt. 1 and you'll be in Half Moon Bay in 15 minutes to enjoy tide pools, surfing, body surfing, mountain biking and hiking.
