The Little Yellow House - Unit B

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Church St, San Francisco, CA 94114, United States

The Space

INTRODUCTION: Unit B -- our City View Suite – is a bright and quiet, newly refinished, completely private one-bedroom suite with a separate entrance, located right in the heart of picturesque Noe (No-ee) Valley. Built on the street level of our cute “Little Yellow House,” this well-appointed stylish accommodation is perfect as an executive apartment or vacation rental. It is clean, secure, smoke-free and pet & eco-friendly. It has many amenities you would find in a fine hotel but with the personal touch of a bed & breakfast. It’s ideally suited for one or two adults, but can accommodate up to four. Your hosts are available to assist you during your stay.

LOCATION: Nestled in the heart of Noe Valley of San Francisco (Church & 24th), the “Little Yellow House” is uniquely perched overlooking the city and the bay, but without having to climb any hills to get to the house. Noe Valley is also blessed as having one of the sunniest and warmest neighborhoods in the city – an important consideration here in San Francisco. And Noe Valley is known for its up-scale desirability and charm -- boasting trendy restaurants, bakeries, wine & cheese shops, fashionable apparel boutiques, floral shops and public transportation. Other B & B’s like to say they are located near Noe, but the “Little Yellow House” is right in the middle of it.

SIZE & LAYOUT: Tucked away from the street noise, unit B is a completely private, one-bedroom apartment is about the size of a hotel suite. Its open kitchen and bright living area adjoins a private deck with outstanding panoramic views. A separate bedroom adjoins the living area. It has a private full size bath and there are no stairs to climb.

WELCOME GIFT & BREAKFAST: It is our pleasure to present you with a welcome gift of a bottle of wine or other preferred beverage upon your arrival. Complimentary continental breakfast items are included for stays up to one month.

(Backyard is restricted to pets only.) An enclosed kitty litter box is also available for your cat’s use. Individual pet water bowls are always clean and full. A doggy/kitty-cat bed is also available for your pet.

We typically try to meet with each guest once during their stay. If we are unable to meet with them personally, we will phone to ensure guest satisfaction.

Extensions for length of stay may only be granted on a space available basis.

REGISTERED GUESTS ONLY: Only those guests who have properly registered through the booking agency are allowed to stay overnight at the “Little Yellow House.” One additional unregistered guest is limited to one overnight stay.

QUIET HOURS: Between the hours of ten o’clock PM and eight o’clock AM, noise must be kept to a normal conversational level. Your neighbors not only live and sleep on either side of your apartment, but also above and below your apartment. Although we have gone to extra lengths to sound insulate the apartment, nothing is full proof. Your conscientious courtesy will be greatly appreciated by your neighbors.

PETS: Although your quiet/friendly/housebroken cat or dog (under 60 pounds) is welcomed at the “Little Yellow House”, we must insist that incessantly noisy, ill-behaved or intimidating pets be left at home. Also, you will be held financially responsible for any damage (such as chewing/clawing marks and pee/poop accidents) caused by your pet during your stay.

GARDEN/BACKYARD: The garden/backyard is off-limits to guests, although your pet may use it to relieve itself via doggy-doors. The door that leads to the garden/backyard is for emergency use only and an alarm will sound when it is opened.

SMOKING: The “Little Yellow House” is a happy, smoke-free house to ensure a safe and healthy living environment. Smoking is not permitted inside the building. But, if you do wish to smoke, you may step out to on to your private deck to do so. An ashtray is available for your use.

FIRE PROCEDURES: Your safety is our paramount concern. Your apartment has an ABC fire extinguisher in the kitchen, garage and laundry room. Familiarity with its use is critical for the safety of everyone. In the unlikely event that you encounter a fire and you cannot easily contain a fire using the extinguisher, you must egress the building immediately. All exits are clearly marked. Some emergency escape doors are alarmed, but in a serious fire, you should use any means available to escape. Once you are safely away from the fire, call 911 and report the fire, then call your hosts, as there may be other occupants still in the building. Remember: never use water on a grease fire and never return to a burning building until the fire marshal give the OK. The risk of fire in San Francisco is why the “Little Yellow House” does not allow candle burning/smoking inside the building. If you desire a romantic candle lit ambience, flameless electric candles are stored in the kitchen cabinet for your use.

Any notice required to be given under this Agreement shall be in writing and sent to the contact information included herein.

  • My husband and I had a great stay @ the Little Yellow House. The place was very clean and well maintained. The location is close to 24th street and all of the restaurants and shops. We enjoyed our time there- thank you Lee & Bob.

    April 2014
  • We loved our stay in the Little Yellow House! It was clean, quiet,comfortable and the view from the deck was spectacular. The location can't be beat. Lee and Bob thought of everything to make our stay in SF wonderful. We loved that we didn't have to buy coffee, milk and orange juice and they even provided robes!

  • The reservation was canceled 237 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

    February 2014
  • We had a wonderful time in the 'City View Suite' at the Little Yellow House. The best thing about it has to be the view, but this isn't the only reason why I would return. The apartment is immaculate and just as described. Any issues that we had we promptly dealt with by Lee, who despite being across the Atlantic for the first couple of days of our stay, did everything he could to make sure that we were comfortable and content.

  • We had a marvelous stay at the "Litle Yellow House" Unit B. It is even more beautiful than the photos show on the homepage. The whole space is so lovely decorated and furnished, the view from the apt. and the wooden terrace is gorgeous.From our bed we saw the sun rise. Tremendous! And it is extremely clean, well housekept. Noe Valley is a very nice neighborhood, perfect for shopping, Castro and Mission just around the blocks, public transportation extremely easy. We stayed there for 10 nights and immediately felt at home. We did not meet our hosts because they were on vacation but they phoned us regularly to see if we needed anything or to give us any advice. Overwhelming how they cared for us. We definitely will recommend it to anybody going to San Franciso. It is the perfect place to stay!!!

    September 2012
  • Throughout our stay Lee was our contact. He met us to store our luggage early. And he dropped by after we moved in to make sure everyghing was okay. Our stay was as advertised: convenient location, first-class quarters, inspiring view from the deck, and very quiet. Highly recommended!

    August 2012
  • Awesome flat, beautiful views, comfortable and exactly as pictured. Great neighborhood, right on the J line and easy to get transportation. Lee and Bob are awesome - really nice and easy going. Thanks again!

    June 2012
  • Out stay at The Little Yellow House was perfect! Lee and Bob made our visit feel more like a resort experience providing us with everything we needed for our stay in San Francisco. They answered all of our questions and recommended many things for us to do. The location of the apartment couldn't have been better, not to mention the view! It's within a block of a J-line tram stop, 24th street bus stop, and many cafes, restaurants and bars. Dolores park, Mission, and Castro are also just few blocks away. If are visiting San Francisco, The Little Yellow House is a perfect accommodation.
