This beautifully furnished home in Noe Valley is a classic San Francisco flat located at the top of a two-unit building. The space is inundated with natural sunlight, with two quiet bedrooms in the back - one bedroom has a comfortable queen-sized bed with a large outdoor deck, and the other bedroom is configured as a media room (for an additional fee this can be configured with a queen size bed).
The front of the house is dominated by a large living room and long bank of original bay windows overlooking Noe Valley. Throughout you will find many spaces where you can relax: a comfortable couch in front of a wood-burning fireplace, a cozy and well-appointed den, and a small breakfast nook adjacent to the kitchen.
The kitchen was remodeled with high-end appliances several years ago, and features a fully restored 1952 Wedgewood stove, custom cabinets, and restored douglas fir flooring. Those who love to cook will find all the equipment one might need. There are several excellent local markets nearby and a farmer's market in the neighborhood every Saturday morning.
Also note that the streetcar stop is a block away, and the subway six blocks. Private washing and drying machines are also available in the first floor garage for laundry.
Interaction with Guests
When not upstairs I stay with my brother downstairs, so I am always nearby if a guest has questions or needs any assistance.
Please be considerate of neighbors, particularly the owner of the second unit in the building (he is my brother). Also note the flat is strictly non-smoking. Please smoke outside in the front of the house or on the back deck. When exiting for the day, please be sure to turn off the main lights and heat, and be certain the stove and burners are in the off position. Never leave a fire in the fireplace unattended. At present there are no available parking spots in the garage.
Chris has a beautiful, open, and light infused apartment in a great neighborhood. The apartment is well furnished and equipped and filled with interesting art. We were very comfortable. The description is accurate and Chris was a good host. We would love to stay again.
Chris was attentive and helpful in getting us settled in and quick to respond to any questions. Apartment was gorgeous, clean, and in a great neighborhood. Would love to stay again if I make it back out to SF.
Absolutely stunning, spacious flat with exceptional decor. We thoroughly enjoyed the neighbourhood & easy access to the city via street cars. Numerous shops and restaurants a stones throw away. Chris was a fantastic host & easy to communicate with, extensive knowledge of the area and what's on offer. Will definitely stay here on our next visit to San Fran! Thanks Chris!
Chris's place is in a lovely residential neighbourhood of San Francisco. You can be downtown on the J street car in 25 minutes, or jog up Twin Peaks (beware the burn!) in 30. Great restaurants and cafes nearby, Holly and Michelle at Episode salon across the road do a great manicure and you can pick up groceries at Whole Foods to cook in Chris's well appointed kitchen. Loved this place - beautifully decorated, interesting art, nice bed linen. And Chris is great to deal with too!
The beautiful and spacious description is an understatement. We felt immediately at home on the first day of our week long stay. I can echo the other reviews regarding convenience to shopping, transportation and even eateries (Chloe's was a delight). It's a great location to visit the city but not be in the thick of things. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time in the neighborhood. Reservation, communications and checkin/checkout with Chris were all seamless. We would definitely stay here again.
Christopher's place is stunning, super spacious, stylish, beatifully arranged and clean. Had a great time.
Great spot. The apartment was huge, and very well appointed. The stay was terrific, we were so comfortable during our whole stay.
Christopher was a great and responsive host.
The location is in one of the premier neighborhoods in San Francisco; very convenient to public transportation
to downtown ( the Muni is literally steps from the door). Good dining options are also very nearby.
Originally from Portland, Oregon, I have lived in San Francisco since 2005. I love to travel and have been lucky enough to have spent time all over Europe, Asia and Latin America. I look forward to hosting you in my favorite city of them all!
