The Space

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. 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!

Guests have access to all parts of the house, except for the garage. There is street parking directly in front of the garage. Some closets in the house are locked; however, there is one dedicated closet for guest use in each bedroom.

We usually interact with guests only by email or phone. We are happy to help with preparing for your trip, but we respect your privacy. While renting this property, we stay at another house of ours, in a different part of town - however, in an emergency, we can typically be at the property within 30 minutes.

Noe Valley is a primarily residential neighborhood, although there are two bustling commercial strips: the first along 24th Street, between Church Street and Diamond Street, and the second, less dense corridor along Church Street, between 24th Street and 30th Street.

Ruth Asawa was a resident of Noe Valley from 1962 until her death in August of 2013. Carlos Santana graduated from James Lick Middle School on Noe Street in the early 1960s, as did Benjamin Bratt in the following decade. [4] Medea Benjamin also lives in the neighborhood. Famous residents include Scott Hutchins, Evan Williams and Mark Zuckerberg.

There is a bus stop (24) within a 3 minute walk of the house - this bus will connect you with the Muni stop in the Castro, which gives you fast access to any location downtown. Alternatively, there is a bus stop for the 48 on 24th and Castro (a 5 minute walk away). The 48 will bring you to the BART station at

  • Alex was an incredibly thoughtful host, and his house was everything we wanted and more! My family and I stayed there for a 4-day trip to the city, and after a harrowing travel experience, coming home to the Noe Valley made us forget all of the craziness. We were thrilled with the all the arrangements - especially with the lovely hot tub and the beautiful balcony view of the city. The house had so much character and made us feel like we were really experiencing the eclectic charm of SF. Alex really made our stay feel extra special. It was super easy getting in, and he was very responsive to any questions we had. No complaints whatsoever - highly, highly recommended!

  • This is a 6 star place! It's stylish, very comfortable and a jacuzzi on the terrace with views over SF makes it really stand apart. We loved the espresso machine and complimentary beans, made us really feel at home :)
    The kitchen has a lot of gear and was stocked with spices and oils.
    Beds are comfy and the street is very quite at night, so well suited for a good night's rest.
    Alex (email hidden), early arrival was no problem at all, we received a warm welcome and he gave thoughtful tips prior to our stay as well as superfast answers on the questions we had.

  • (email hidden) to stay! The views are incredible, the home is beautiful and the neighborhood is nice and quiet with lots of public transport options and restaurants near by. It was the perfect place for our 10 day SF stay.

  • Really excellent accommodation. I could/did spend hours on the terrace just watching the views of Noe Valley below. Very complete kitchen so ideal if you feel like rustling up a meal. We found our rented car very useful for going down into the Noe Valley for food shopping etc.

  • This home was amazing! Great location with beautiful views, spacious and comfortable! Alex (email hidden) and met us on arrival to show us around the property. I would recommend his home to anyone interested in staying in San Francisco!

  • Our family stayed at Alex's wonderful home in Noe Valley for 5 nights. The home is even better than it looks in the photos. The space is so well designed. Alex (and presumably his wife whom we did not have the occasion to meet) have a meticulous design aesthetic. Their style is modern, streamlined, creative, and most of all functional. Alex was very responsive when a fuse blew out. I insisted he did not need to come to the home to fix it as it was just in one area of the kitchen and we were only there one more night, but he insisted that he drive in from the east bay to address the issue immediately. He was pleasant and helpful and also very conscious about giving us "our" space. He was also very nice about a misplaced key (which it turns out he found). We were very happy about our choice and our stay.

  • 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 (email hidden) 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.
