About this listing

1600 Sq Foot Yard with all amenities!

Interaction with Guests
We provide a confirmation as soon as the booking is completed and again about a week prior to arrival. We send a complete description of the unit, access, transportation, local restaurants, etc. Once someone has checked in, we often text ~ 1/day to check in on them. Occasionally we'll see them in the back while grilling.
Noe Valley is central to so many things. It is a real San Francisco neighborhood with cafes, shops, restaurants, recreation and the all important access to transportation.
Public Transportation. You can do a lot from our unit with buses, trains, and BART. You are 1/2 to 2 blocks away from 4 Muni lines (Muni J, Muni 36, Muni 24, Muni 14). These lines can take you many sites including downtown, Union Square, the Giant's Ballpark, 24th Street, Dolores Park, The Castro, The Haight, Pacific Heights and to BART (or 15 minute walk) which give you regional access to East Bay, Airports, Oakland, Berkeley, Stadiums.
Other Things to Note
Parking is street parking. 60-70% of the time you will be able to park right on Chenery Street between 30th St and Randall. There is no time limit and no permits required. The other 30-40% of the time you would be on 30th Street or on Randall. This is not like some neighborhoods where you drive around for an hour and still can't find something. The most inconvenience you'd experience is that you're a block or so away.
One full bedroom including the bathroom. May not work for 3 persons who don't fully want to share a bathroom that would include those staying on the SOFA BED (not a pull out but full fold down style). In order to get to the only solo bathroom, you have to go into the bedroom.
Note about "Friendly for Kids"; the unit is not child proofed in any way. There is a set of stairs up to the bedroom and bathroom without babygates.
5 things to know about my travel habits:
1) I enjoy being centrally located.
2) I love using local transportation whenever possible.
3) I have to unpack and "nest" before I can sleep or enjoy the sights.
4) I think technology is amazing and love how it has created a virtual marketplace for EVERYTHING.
5) Sometimes I over estimate when I create lists...couldn't think of a 5th. (or read that as "GOOD SENSE OF HUMOR")
