This stylish home in San Francisco's Noe Valley neighborhood features 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, and sleeps up to 6 guests. The two story house is thoroughly modern, yet comfortable. A bougainvillea blooms over the entrance on a quiet cul-de-sac. The house is quiet and light filled from many skylights, and boasts views of Noe Valley and a sliver of downtown San Francisco and the Bay. There's a small backyard with a towering redwood tree and a hot tub; from the hot tub with a view, you can enjoy a starry San Francisco night under a redwood tree, with the flickering lights of downtown San Francisco as your backdrop.
Two bedrooms are upstairs, and share one light filled bathroom. The first bedroom has a king bed; the second bedroom is configured as a home office, but has two sofabed armchairs that convert into two twin beds ideal for the kids. Also upstairs is a modern gourmet kitchen, with a Viking gas range and oven, and high-end appliances. A pantry provides additional space for preparing more elaborate dinners. A large light filled family and dining room has magnificent views of Noe Valley and the small green oasis below (where you'll often see humming birds), and leads to the spacious deck with views and a small barbecue. After sunset, you can watch movies on a big projection wall. Lastly, there's a reading room in the front of the house, where you can plot your day's moves under a large kentia palm.
The master bedroom is downstairs, has a queen bed, and opens onto a small sheltered deck by the redwood tree, and out to the hot tub and small fern garden. The hot tub accommodates up to 5 people and offers privacy and views. There's a full, but small bathroom downstairs. Both bathrooms have showers and tubs.
Noe Valley is a quiet, family friendly neighborhood within a stone's throw from the hip Mission and Castro, and their trendy restaurants. Noe's Valley's 24th Street, with its cafes, restaurants, and Saturday farmer's market is a 5 minute walk away; the bustling Castro and the Mission are each a 15-20 minute walk. Public transportation is 5 minutes away, and there is street parking directly in front of the house if you bring your own car (the garage is not available to guests).
The house is designed to be both stylish and modern, yet comfortable. It is urban, yet quiet and feels surrounded by nature. We want you to feel at home, and the house is not fussy - we welcome dogs of any size (but please absolutely no cats or other pets - we have severe allergies). There is absolutely no smoking in the house, backyard or on the deck. The house lends itself to entertaining but is NOT a party house - like most other places in the City, the neighbors live within close proximity. There's fast internet access throughout the house, and there are plenty of entertainment options, including Netflix. However, there are NO TVs: the living room has a projector, 7.1. soundsystem and a big projection wall for movies after dark, and one of the upstairs bedrooms has a large monitor and DVD player and Netflix. If you are a sports fan and can't live without watching your team, there are several sports bars just 5 minutes away on 24th Street.
This house is ideal if you want a quiet and stylish retreat, conveniently located after a day of hustle and bustle in the city - we hope to welcome you!

We recently stayed at Alex's house for a friends' reunion weekend and loved our experience. The house is in impeccable condition and both the architecture and interior design were beautiful! The view from the upstairs deck is unbelievable and the downstairs hot tub was a very nice touch. As a host, Alex was extremely responsive, always polite, and always willing to help wherever needed. We had a few questions along the way and despite the fact that Alex was out of the country, he still managed to respond promptly. That said, the documents that were left in the house pretty much answered everything and included some really great recommendations for the neighborhood.
I would definitely come back to stay at Alex's house anytime I'm back in San Francisco. Thanks again, Alex!
We had a fantastic stay at Alex's house in Noe Valley over New Year. The house is great and very well situated, within easy striking distance of some fantastic restaurants and cafes as well as public transport links and supermarkets etc. And whilst being pretty central it's a quiet neighborhood and street parking is really easy. Alex was also very easy to deal with. All our queries were answered promptly and efficiently and we were made to feel very welcome. We would definitely recommend both him and the house to others.
The home was a great place to spend the holidays with my two daughters in San Francisco. The views were beautiful, the street was quiet, the home has all the latest technology--we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. And Alex is a most gracious host. Thanks so much.
This house is amazing. You always worry a place won't be as great as the pictures but all 5 of us loved this house. It is set up perfect for families and for relaxing and enjoying the city. Every little touch is there for your enjoyment. The hot tub was great and they had towels set right at the door for your use. We will look forward to staying here the next time we visit our son who lives in Palo Alto. This is perfect if traveling with large group. So much better to have a house then multiple hotel rooms. Also nice to get away from the crowds after touring the city. Stay here you will be very happy you did.
Alex's house is gorgeous and he was incredibly sweet and helpful. My family stayed in his home recently while visiting me in SF and they all loved the place. My dad has back problems and Alex took the time to show me the house before I booked it so I could ensure it's suitability. He also continued to communicate leading up to our rental period to see if there was anything he could do to help prepare. Furthermore, Alex had fruit, champagne, coffee and even a welcome card awaiting my families arrival! His house is clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The views from the decks are fantastic too. Parking was easy as you can park in front of the driveway. Location is also very convenient to Noe Valley shops, the Mission, the freeway, the Castro, and many other areas. Alex has taken the time to prepare the house for guests, even drawing a large chalk map of the neighborhood, that included business cards at their appropriate locations. We were impressed. I hope my family returns to SF in need of a nice home to stay in again so I get to spend more time in this beautiful house!
Eine absolut fantastische Wohnung mit sensationellem Blick auf San Francisco.
Diana und Alex waren perfekte Gastgeber und haben alles absolut liebevoll vorbereitet, um tolle Tage in der Stadt verbringen zu können.
Sollten wir wieder nach San Francisco kommen, wollten wir nur dort wieder wohnen.
Die Wohnung ist schön hell und geräumig, es fehlt an nichts.
Die Schieferwand als Wegweiser mit Restaurant-Tipps ist perfekt.
Ebenso waren die Abende im Whirlpool ein Traum.
Wer sich hier nicht erholen kann, der schafft das nirgendwo!
Alex was the most accommodating host. Alex was prompt with his responses from the beginning and always used kind words. The house was so beautiful and the location was ideal. The house had a very comfortable and home feeling throughout but still felt modern and chic. There are a lot of details throughout the home that lets you know there was a lot of care and quality put into the home. Alex left several pamphlets to answer any questions about the home and neighborhood. He answered all of our questions before we knew we had questions. He was so kind that he even gave us a card and a gift to enjoy the last night. I highly recommend this stylish Noe Valley home and the neighborhood was just spectacular. I will be very surprised if any other host could top the kindness and consideration Alex exuded. Thank you Alex for a perfect vacation!
We had a wonderful stay at Alex's house. The accomodations are unbeatable and the deck and its view of the Noe Valley are as well. The neighborhood is very agreeable with its small shops and restaurants within walking distance. Alex's indications prior to our arrival as well as how everything is pointed out within the house made our experience much easier and enjoyable. In summary, we couldn't ask for more.
This was the perfect end to an amazing holiday. Alex has the most beautiful home and made us feel so welcome. The beds were incredibly comfy and the view was absolutely stunning. We went to several of Alex's restaurant recommendations nearby and they all blew us away. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Already the cordial and easy communication with Alex prior to our arrival was promising and Alex helped us with an early arrival. But our high expectations were even exceeded. Our three kids (6, 13, 16) almost "freaked out" when we stepped in the house, not only because of having Internet TV on a widescreen beamer and a hot tub. (Ok, they lived for 3 weeks in a RV and were a little bit weaned from any convenience). But let´s check the facts beyond the first emotions: the house is perfect for up to 6 people with comfortable beds for everyone. It is very well equipped and was super clean and tidy. From the main room and the balcony you have a great view on the hills of Castro, on the Twin Peaks and on downtown SF. In short walking distance there are 2 bus stops (e.g. line 24 taking you north towards Castro), cozy restaurants and small shops. Alex prepared not only a helpful map of the neighborhood on his blackboard, but also a perfect guide to the house and - not to forget - a warm welcome message, a fruit bowl and a welcome drink. All in all we really felt at home in Alex house and for sure we will come back. BTW it was our first booking with airbnb - it couldn´t have been better!
