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 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 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 (there is a shared entrance), and will use the kitchen on 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.
THE best AirBNB host and apartment we ever tried! Sad to say, we were only in SF for one night and in our work, but the calm and friendly attitude of Barbara and the fantastic apartment with its terrace is two heavy reasons to come back and visit again with our families. Everything Barbara recommended us to do was perfect, and the one and only decision we made by ourselves (go to the piers/harbour/downtown just after we left) was a mistake ;)
Absolutely loved it. The apartment is exactly as it looked on the pictures and actually, even better. Barbara made us feel really welcome with clear instructions and lots of personal touches. The location was great and we enjoyed this visit much more than our first trip to San Fransisco when we stayed downtown. Cannot recommend this apartment highly enough.
The apartment was amazing and Barbara was a delight - the little bottle of Prosecco in the fridge on arrival an added bonus.
Great location and beautiful rooftop terrace. We loved San Fran.
Barbara is a very nice host, she prepared 3 clean room for me and my friends. We also have a big drawing room and kitchen. Great experience.
Our host, Barbara, could not have been more accommodating including answering all my questions in the months leading up to our stay. She greeted us as soon as we pulled up to the property and in fact gave up her own nearby parking space for our rental car. After a walk through the beautiful, sunny apartment which is fully stocked with every possible need (including complimentary beverages in the refrigerator and a bouquet of flowers), she gave us a parking pass and local grocery store discount card. There was no detail she did not consider for our comfort and enjoyment. The apartment exceeded my expectations (which were already very high from the photos and description in the listing) and what you can't see from online images is how comfortable the space is from the beds to the towels to the dining and kitchen area to the living room furniture to the cozy blankets we wrapped ourselves in on the beautiful terrace. Barbara resides in the upper level apartment but we had complete privacy (although I would have been delighted to see her during our stay!) It's a lovely neighborhood with nearby walking access to conveniences and downtown San Francisco is a short and easy drive. (Since we rented a car we didn't explore public transportation options.) It was also a low stress, 15-20 minute drive from the SF airport. We enjoyed vigorous walks (thank you SF hills) in and around the neighborhood and we felt perfectly safe. The apartment is located on a quiet street far enough away from the busier roads that traffic noise was completely unnoticeable. (We're used to visiting NYC where you hear a car honk every 30 seconds!)
Words are missing to describe the place... We had the privilege to use the 4 bedrooms with the acclaimed confy matresses, with a hot tub and its amazing views. The deck is quite big, and enough for 5 adults to chit-chat before or after a long day out visiting the city. The neighborhood is really cool and quiet. It's a family friendly one, with cafés, nice restaurants and a supermarket not far. It's not hilly, which is a relief after staying near Coit Tower :-).The kitchen is fully furnished with loads of stuff and utensils and we were welcomed with fresh beers in the fridge (much needed!). MUNI J Line is just a few minutes away so it's very handy to get into downtown. We used Uber to go to Castro just behind the hill and it costs about $7... The apartment is bathed with sunlight and the decoration is trendy, and overall, the place is BIG! Barbara, even if we didn't have the chance to meet her due to personal matters, is very friendly and is dedicated to make her guests as comfortable as possible with an attention to details. We can but only recommend her property to everyone who wants a quiet/holiday feeling place. Thank you again, we had an amazing time! !
