It was a very nice apartment in high condition and well-equipped. The neighborhood was pleasant and with good public connections to other parts of San Francisco. I'm very pleased with my stay and recommend the apartment. Big thanks to Arlene and Leon!
We spent 10 days at Arlene and Leon's apartment last July and we felt at home right from the beginning.The supermarket and public transport are a few minutes walk away.
The apartment is as described and Arlene and Leon are very nice people. All this contributed to make our stay in San Francisco a wonderful one.
Nous avons passé 10 jours dans l'appartement d'Arlene et Leon en juillet dernier et nous nous y sommes sentis chez nous dés le début.Le supermarché et les transports en commun sont à quelques minutes de marche.L'appartement est tel que décrit dans l'annonce et Arlene et Leon sont des hôtes très agréables.Tout ceci a contribué à faire de notre séjour à San Francisco de superbes vacances.
Not only was it a pleasure to stay at Arlene and Leon's apartment, but they swiftly and helpfully dealt with an initial access/cleaning problem. This was especially impressive given that they were on the east coast and working their way to the airport at the time this all happened. Someone's true character is more evident when problems arise, and I can strongly recommend Leon and Arlene as gracious hosts who will do what is necessary to make your stay comfortable and pleasant.
Their garden is beautiful and relaxing, and the apartment is quiet and as nice as the photos. The "J" muni is also on the corner, which is unbelievably convenient, and although I didn't realize how great this was based on the reviews, there is no better option to move about town.
The neighborhood is quiet and pretty. On the corner there is a conveniently-located bodega, and only a short walk away is the 24th Street commercial strip with lots of nice sit-down food options, and a Whole Foods in case you want to make any meals or snacks in the apartment kitchen. Dolores Park and the mission are also a short walk away, and Union Square is maybe 15-20 minutes away on the J muni.
We had a great time here on our honeymoon, and we would stay again with Arlene and Leon.
My grandparents were visiting from out of town and we needed a place for them close to my apartment in Noe Valley. Arlene & Leon's apartment was perfect. It's clean, well located and beautifully furnished. It even has a pretty garden in the back for some quiet reading!
Can't recommend enough!
We had a great stay at Arlene and Leon! They were wonderful hosts and the appartment was neat and well equipt. I would recommend staying with them for short or long term trips!
My wife and I stayed at Arlene&Leon for 10 days. The apartment is great, looking just like in the pictures. The area it's great silent part of SF, just a short walk from 24th Street where you have nice shops and a Whole Foods. The proximity to the J Muni metro is great for getting anywhere you want, We didn't miss a thing and the hosts were great and communicative. Leon was really nice picking us up from the BART station when we arrived. Also, my wife unexpectedly needed to leave earlier, I wasn't there and he gave a hand driving her with the bags to the metro station. we definitely recommend the apartment to anyone having a short stay in SF.
My wife and I stayed for 10 days over Christmas 2012 to be close to our family who live nearby. We found the apartment very much as described. It was clean, warm, quiet, well equipped, and the bed was comfortable for us. The location is excellent both for the local area and the J line to the city is just a few minutes walk away. The hosts were helpful but not intrusive.
The apt was perfect for a 2 week visit from my mother-in-law. Super clean. Extremely quiet. Full-grade, premium appliances including use of a washer/dryer. It felt like a home away from home.
Arlene and Leon were very hospitable. They let us pick apples from their tree in the lovely garden, and always had the morning paper in front of the door for my MIL.
Ample street parking, although we mostly took the J Muni, which is only 1.5 blocks away. Tons of convenient locations within walking distance including the popular 24th street for restaurants and a Whole Foods.
Would definitely have other visiting guests stay here again!
We loved the space, the location, and the quiet.
We would return and recommend to our friends!!!
me and my girlfriend had a fabulous time in San Francisco and Arlene & Leon's apartment definitely contributed to making our trip so enjoyable. The apartment is brilliantly equipped with everything you could possibly need and is a comfortable place to stay. It was great each morning to wake up and have the local newspapers waiting for us on our doorstep kindly left by the hosts. In addition the hosts have compiled plenty of reading resources available to provide you with insight all about the city and its surroundings. Leon also kindly provided free use of wi-fi which was really useful. In addition Leon & Arlene also provided cable TV with tonnes of TV channels. Not that we stayed in to watch TV but being a football fan it was convenient having the sports channels available to watch Liverpool.
Alongside this, the location within Noe Valley is perfect to experience what San Francisco is really like. The apartment is closely located to the Church metro line and is in close proximity to places like Valencia, Mission and Castro.
I would certainly recommend this apartment for anyone wishing to visit San Francisco as a holiday or short term stay.
Thank you so much Arlene & Leon for making our stay so welcoming and comfortable throughout.
