About this listing
Gorgeous and sunny condo in Noe Valley. Beautiful views of the city. Gourmet kitchen, terrace w barbecue grill, and wood burning fireplace. A great place to come home! Walking distance to great restaurants, cafes and public transit.
Natural light floods into nearly every corner! This 3 bedroom condo is a great place to stay in San Francisco. The sun drenched terrace provides amazing views and is truly a unique highlight. Guests can enjoy exclusive access to main living areas, without having to pay the premium of "entire home/apt". Noe Valley is one of the sunniest areas in San Francisco. The home is just a few minutes walking distance from public transit (J-Line Muni).
Situated within easy walking distance of all the great shops, restaurants and bars on 24th Street, as well as Valencia Street and Mission.
The house was constructed in 2003 and has modern amenities. The condo is on the upper half of the building, so you will need to go up one flight of stairs to reach the unit (about 15 stairs till a small landing, then about 10 stairs).
The guest rooms, private bathroom, living room (including wood burning fireplace), dining room, and half bathroom are all located on the main floor. The kitchen is fitted with gourmet appliances, including a double oven, 2 sinks, dishwasher. Washer and dryer are also available at your convenience (includes iron and ironing board, which is on the wall). A small desk with a printer is located by the bedrooms for any office or quick printing needs.
There are 3 bedrooms in total available (please note the summary table that says 1 bedroom is incorrect, unfortunately AirBnB is unable to correct this).
The first guest bedroom is located in quiet area towards the back of the apartment. A large closet and dresser are fully available for guests, and the room has a queen size bed (152.4cm x 203.2cm). The second bedroom has a king size bed (200cm X 190.5cm), which is also furnished with thick mattress toppers for extra comfort. If preferred, I can arrange 2 twin size mattresses (99.1cm x 190.5cm) instead, just let me know your preference. The third guest bedroom is a smaller room in the middle of the unit, and has two entrances - one to the guest wing, and the other door opens to the living room. The bed is a full (double) size high quality futon (137.2cm x 190.5cm) which can be kept in either sofa or bed style. This bed includes a thick 3" mattress topper for extra comfort, so it feels just like a regular comfy bed!
The bedrooms share a full size bathroom (toilet has separate door, shower/tub). A half bathroom (toilet/sink) is located just by the living room.
The sofa in the living room has a full (double) size sleeper mattress (137.2cm x 190.5cm), and can accommodate an additional 2 persons.
I only book the place to one set of guests at a time. Hence, if you are two persons, you will have exclusive access to the other rooms and there will not be any other guests who access the place during your stay.
Full access to terrace with grill, living room including fireplace, gourmet kitchen, washer/dryer, etc. This place should be considered as close as possible to a private apartment.
Interaction with Guests
I live in the upstairs part of the condo (the entrance and stairs are shared), and may use the kitchen on rare occasion (if you wish to use it exclusively, it's not a problem, just let me know). I am available for any questions about the condo or things to do in San Francisco.
The neighborhood is just a few minutes from the 24th street shops and cafes, as well as the lively Mission district.
Public transport is very close by and you can easily reach downtown, piers, etc.
3 minute walk to/from muni (J line), which goes downtown to all major areas (Moscone Center, Ferry Building, Embarcadero, etc.). Bus lines 24 (goes down Divisadero), 14 (goes down Mission), 27, 49, and 12 are close by, as well as BART on 24th and Mission. Short walk to the Mission district bars and restaurants, Easy access to highways 101 South and 280 south, 15 minutes from SFO.
Other Things to Note
Parking: There is ample street parking, especially compared to other neighborhoods in SF. Parking permits are required on weekdays between 10am and 6pm if you park longer than 2 hours. I can provide a guest parking permit during your stay but require that this be returned as part of the checkout. Please let me know in advance if you think you will need a permit.
Please keep the noise down after 11pm. No parties. If you would like to invite guests, please let me know in advance.
My friends and I stayed at Barbara's place and we had a really nice stay. Our beds were super comfortable, and the place was really beautiful and clean. Our host was friendly, although we barely saw her while we were there since we were out wandering the town all day! The area is perfect, as it was quiet and safe with easy access to public transit. What a nice spot! I totally recommend staying here.
We stayed at Barbara's beautiful home on a Friday night and it exceeded our expectations. Barbara does live upstairs but she never once did we feel awkward or felt as if we didn't have privacy. Barbara is a wonderful host and the sweetest person I have ever met. The rooftop terrace is nice and cozy but it can get a little cold. But Barbara has nice warm blankets ready for those nights. The beds are super comfortable and the place is well lit and very clean. I would recommend this place to anyone seeking a nights refuge in sf
Barbara was an excellent host and made us feel very welcome for our stay. She even met us at the bus station to lift our bags in her car, which was fantastic she also had several clipper clipper cards that we could use to get around San Francisco. Her apartment looks exactly as it does on the photos, with high quality furnishings. Bright airy apartment perfect for escaping the hustle and bustle of a busy city. Perfect stay for my family. We had 4 adults and 2 children and it was spacious, very comfortable beds, beautiful kitchen and décor, plenty of space for clothes etc. 3 good sized bedrooms and a bonus sofa bed in the living room. 5 min walk to the J line bus gets you into downtown quickly, 15min walk to nearest BART station to take you to the airport. Area is safe, groceries, shops and restaurants within short distance. Perfect place for families and couples to explore. Barbara is great to deal with, very easy to communicate with and responds quickly to any questions. We really loved staying here and would love to come back to explore this fantastic city and would definitely stay with Barbara.
Barbara has a lovely home. Very welcoming, clean and tidy, with all the amenities you could need in her beautiful kitchen. We enjoyed coffee on the patio in the morning, and evening. Very cozy, and we felt right at home. Barbara welcomed us with fresh fruit and a bottle of wine, coffee and teas. Her home is just outside of the hub of the city, and we enjoyed the neighborhood breakfast places, wine bar, and famous Mitchells Ice cream, which we walked to each night. Safeway is also walking distance. This was our first Airbnb with our family, and I believe this house insured a relaxed time was had by all. Just beware of parking rules on this street!
We stayed with our 2 sons (16 and 20) in this beautiful appartment. It was exactly as mentioned on Airbnb and even more! The decoration was very nice. Sheets and towels more than enough and from a real good quality. The roofterrace had a great view! Everything we needed was in the appartment, so luxury.
Barbara is a great host and we appreciated her hospitality and kindness.
It was so nice that Barbare came with a bottle of wine to drink a glass at our last evening.
A great first Airbnb experience for us!
Barbara ist eine außergewöhnlich liebenswerte Gastgeberin mit Blick aufs Detail. Die Wohneinheit ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet und bietet jeglichen Komfort. Wir haben uns auf Anhieb sehr wohlgefühlt. Downtown ist über die Straßenbahnlinie J sehr gut erreichbar. Man hat das Gefühl sofort in SF anzukommen. Die Dachterrasse bietet genügend Platz zum Entspannen nach einem anstrengenden Sight-Seeingtag. Der Blick von da oben ist einfach wunderbar.
This was my first Airbnb experience and let me just say, WOW!! Barbara was an amazing host! Her place is exactly as pictured and in a PRIME location and she totally took care of us--had a bottle of wine when we a arrived and made sure anything we needed was either provided or she told us where to get it easily. She gave us incredible restaurant recommendations and was just all around everything you look for in a host. I would absolutely without a doubt stay at her place again. Seriously the place was AWESOME!
