About this listing
Dwell magazine meets Noe Valley! Floor-to-ceiling glass windows and an open floor plan connect the private front courtyard with an expansive rear deck. Newly renovated bathrooms, bedrooms, and kitchen sparkle and charm. Great walkability.
This charming garden house is located in sunny Noe Valley in the heart of San Francisco. The ground floor is a large open floor plan with an expansive kitchen island at its center. The north and south walls are dominated by floor-to-ceiling windows, connecting a large rear deck and private garden courtyard to the interior space.
Beautiful bamboo cabinets, clean modern lines, and a fully stocked kitchen with new appliances make this a terrific kitchen for cooking.
The house was recently remodeled to meet Passive House Institute green building standards, requiring air lock-like doors and windows and a super-insulated building envelope. The result: Cozy, draft-free and astonishingly quiet interior (and extreme energy efficiency!).
A favorite part of the house is the large back deck, where you can soak up the sun surrounded by succulents and a view of Twin Peaks.
[Disclaimer: We are currently in the midst re-landscaping the back deck and front courtyard areas and they are not yet fully planted.]
The downstairs is open plan, with a big dining room, kitchen, and living room. There is a master bedroom upstairs with a queen size bed. There are two other bedrooms, each with twin beds and views. There is also a full size bed in the basement.
There is parking out front for two cars. We are just a few blocks away from lovely 24th street, and there is artisinal coffee just down the block! Our house is pet and kid friendly and we have lots of lego.
Feel free to use our computers, appliances, BBQ, board games, and legos. The garage and storage room in the basement are not included in the rental (except to access the trash cans in the garage).
Interaction with guests
We'll be out of town so we won't be around.
We are just a few blocks away from lovely 24th street, where you can find a Whole Food, restaurants, cafes and shopping. Local secret: Perhaps the best espresso in the city is pulled at Spin City laundry less than a block from our house!
J Church Muni train is two blocks away and BART is 17 minute walk.
Other things to note
Kitten alert! We recently added a kitten to our family. He won't be around when you rent our house, and suspect you'd be hard-pressed to find even a single cat hair during your stay. But we don't want to surprise anyone who might be very sensitive.

Our family traveled to Bali in 2011. In addition to having an amazing trip, we had a great experience in renting out our home while we were gone. We're hooked!
