The Space

We love our apartment and hope you'll like it just as much: A sunny south-facing and very spacious living room with beautiful bay windows and a gas fireplace (plus TV and smart Blu-ray if you feel like a night in), hardwood floors in living room and kitchen/dining, delightful Victorian moldings and details throughout, a lovely eat-in kitchen with a comfy home-built corner bench, a big bathroom with large tub, in-unit laundry room, and a bedroom with a queen sized bed tucked away quietly in the rear. You'll have use of the private, south-facing patio with two colorful Adirondack chairs and a mosaic table. Our unit is the entire first floor in a beautiful three story Victorian (built in 1890) and accommodates two people very comfortably. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher and kitchen gadgets, and fun to cook in.

We're located on a quiet street, yet only a few minutes walk away from wonderful cafes and popular restaurants and stores (NOPA, Bi-Rite Market, Nopalito, Matching Half Cafe, Green Chile Kitchen), and two local Farmer's Markets (Sundays and Wednesdays). If you like you're welcome to use our bicycle during your stay, just let us know and we can put it in place for you. It's easy to ride around the neighborhood and through the city on designated bike paths, we live in a relatively flat area and very close to Golden Gate Park.

Explore within walking distance: Alamo Square (Painted Ladies), Panhandle & Golden Gate Park, Buena Vista Park, Haight Ashbury, Divisadero Street (with lots of restaurants and stores), markets and grocery stores. You can also walk through the parks to the De Young Museum, Japanese Tea Garden, Academy of Sciences and Conservatory of Flowers (20 minutes) or take the 5 Fulton bus (7 min). Have fun!

Public transportation within one block. Bus lines (5, 31, 24 etc.) to all major destinations like Downtown/Embarcadero, Ocean Beach, Marina, Mission and more connection points within 2-3 blocks. A perfect home base to explore from!

We're happy to help

The Neighborhood

NoPa is the best! :) It's right in the middle of San Francisco and a wonderful neighborhood to explore - lots of new stores, cafes and restaurants have been and are opening everywhere and yet NoPa has preserved its charm with beautiful old Victorian houses and tree-lined streets. It's a very friendly place and if you have time check out one of the local coffee shops or wine bars for a relaxing drink.

We marked our favorite spots on the map, enjoy! :)

Getting around

You can walk to several major bus lines within one to three blocks, going to all major areas (Downtown, Embarcadero, Ocean Beach, Marina, Mission, ...) and public transportation connection points.

You're welcome to use our bicycle while you're staying here, just let us know. There's lots of designated bike paths in the city and it's a great way to explore SF.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Jonathan & Jeannette's home is perfectly located, very clean, spacious and the natural sunlight in the livingroom is the perfect place to spend your morning with a cup of coffee and a good book. They were wonderfully responsive and helpful. I can't wait to find another excuse to stay at their lovely home in SF. Thank you J&J for letting me stay at your charming home.

  • It was my first time using the service and it all went well. J&J quickly responded to any questions I had on email or text, were easy to communicate with and their apartment is lovely.
    Clean, all in good order and easy explanations for everything.
    Easy to get to the parks and there were good restaurants nearby.
    I would recommend their place.

  • Wonderfully warm and sunny location, charming home, convenient to the NOPA neighborhoods. Jonathan and Jeannette were terrific to do business with throughout the process. Enjoyed our stay and would definitely rent again. Thank you, J&J!

  • I don't think I can say enough positive things about Jonathan and Jeannette's apartment. It was spacious, extremely clean and well set up, in a great neighborhood. Although we weren't able to meet in person, our hosts left a lovely note for us with all the info we could want, and we were able to stay in touch throughout the weekend. We especially loved the extra-large tub and the gas fireplace.

  • What a fantastic stay in the apartment!! Jonathan and Jeanette were great hosts. They left my wife a birthday gift which was much appreciated. The neighborhood is awesome and in a great location. We would definitely stay here again.

  • I live in the neighborhood and had my parents stay at Jonathan & Jeannette Sofer's awesome place in NOPA when they visited for our baby shower. Their stay was lovely and they really enjoyed the accommodations. They are coming again in a few weeks and wanted to stay there again but it wasn’t available. I met with Jonathan myself a week before the visit and he gave me a complete tour and showed me how the convenient push button door locks worked. They are so cool I want them for my place now. The apartment is ground floor so it’s great if you don’t like stairs and parking is pretty easy around the place. All in (email hidden), in an amazing neighborhood at a great rate.

  • Wir waren im september in san francisco und hatten das glück bei jonathan zu wohnen.
    Jonathan und seine frau janette ( sie spricht perfekt deutsch ) sind sehr nett und haben uns gleich alles gezeigt.
    Das apartment is sehr gross und hübsch ein gerichtet. Zu zweit hatten wir mehr als genug platz.
    In unmitelbarer nähe befinden sich auch buse richtung downtown (ca 20 min ) .
    Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind gut zu fuss erreichbar.
    Das quartier ist sehr nett und ruihg. Wir haben uns sehr zuhause gefühlt da wir zb auch die waschmaschine und die super gut ausgestattete küche benutzen konnten.
    Wir würden auf jedenfall wider bei ihnen buchen !

My wife Jeannette and I have both lived in San Francisco on and off for the past 14 years. We love living here and feel fortunate to have been able to find a place we love. We recently got married in 2013 and also had our first baby and we are so happy to have (website hidden) certainly changes once you have a baby and we are enjoying it and trying to get out of the house as much as possible. We love exploring new and old areas in California and also enjoy eating out in great restaurants and cafe's. We both are very active as well and enjoy surfing and exercising, long walks and the ocean. And we hope to travel more in Europe in 2014! My wife is from Germany orginally and if you prefer speaking German we're happy to communicate auf Deutsch. :)
