Modern touch in a traditional Edwardian home. The house has 4 bedroom + a den, a backyard with 2 decks. Contact us with any questions.
This is a “must see” to appreciate all the upgrades and finishes in this tri-level contemporary chic home. It is nestled in the heart of Noe Valley one of San Francisco most desirable neighborhood and home of many famous Silicon Valley entrepreneurs. The house is a short 3 minutes walk (we timed it) to 24th street to get your morning cappuccino from one of the cafes or have dinner in one of the great restaurants - There, you will find many fine food markets, shops, ice-cream parlors, juice bar, a candy store, cafes, bakeries,flower shops etc....
The house has clean lines, high ceilings, hardwood floors, open floor plan with a great flow. An updated kitchen opens up to the formal dining area that is perfect for entertaining while preparing meals. The kitchen features a classic 6-burner O’Keefe & Merritt gas range and oven, Bosch and LG appliances, plenty of storage space and a deep farm sink.
The house has 4 bedrooms + an additional den adjacent to one of the bedrooms that can be used for extra sleeping.
- BR1 sleeps 2 - The upstairs bedroom has a king size bed.
- DEN sleeps 2 - The den is adjacent to the upstairs bedroom and has two twin beds. The slanted ceiling can be challenging for really tall people but kids LOVE the hiding nook.
- BR2 sleeps 2 - The main floor garden side bedroom is all windows and has a queen size bed.
- BR3 sleeps 2 - The main floor street side (small bedroom) has a single bed with a trundle that doubles it into 2 singles.
- BR4 sleeps 4 - The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed and a queen size futon.
-We rent out each room separately or together and depending on how many people are staying in the room, we will discuss the price when request is made.
There is a small garage - and I mean small. It will painfully fit a minivan - so that might be your excuse to rent that little sports car... But you can park in the driveway as long as your are not blocking the sidewalk - Hard to believe, there is plenty of free street parking. Just watch for street cleaning days. The garage is empty so you can also use it for storing your bicycles, canoes... or whatever your are hauling along.
There is a spacious backyard with two decks. The deck next to the house has a gas barbecue grill and an outdoor dining table.
The second deck in the back of the backyard has a TINY finished cottage with a desk and a day bed. Because it is away from the house, it is quiet and great for an afternoon nap or some quiet work.
Nothing much interesting there, except that it is were the brand new washer and dryer are.

-Olivier and Alexandra
Our family of 6 stayed at Olivier and Alexandra's beautiful home for 4 days in August. The hosts were very kind and understanding to our needs.
We had a wonderful time walking the neighborhood and especially enjoyed the Whole Foods a couple blocks away!
Everyone loved the roomy and artfully decorated home. The space was uplifting and joyful. Such a pleasure after staying in cramped hotel rooms.
We had everything we needed and all the instructions were easy to follow.
Highly recommend this home!!
I booked Olivier and Alexandra's place for my family's first visit to San Francisco from China. They were a group of 10 people with lots of luggages with them. It's not easy to find a place like Olivier and Alexandra's which has enough rooms and which is also located near downtown SF. The house is clean, beautifully decorated and well organized. My family had a wonderful time staying there. The hosts were very responsive and helpful before and during my family stay. When my family first arrived the place, Alexandra had prepared some cupcakes in the kitchen and chocolates every bed. How sweet and thoughtful that is! All in all, I highly recommend the place for anyone who is looking for a place to stay shortly in San Francisco and who wants a great time.
Thank you very much again, Olivier and Alexandra!
Olivier and Alexandra were wonderful hosts and we loved staying in their home! The home is beautifully decorated and perfect for our family vacation. We had my in-laws, sister-in-law and three kids. Location wise, it was super convenient next to a park, and all the Noe Valley 24th street stores and restaurants. As a home to stay it was super comfortable, well stocked (kitchen was great for cooking and staying-in if necessary), pack-in plays (for 2 kids), and even had toys! All-in-all it was perfect and it made for a great visit to SF. Both Olivier and Alexandra were also so easy and pleasant to coordinate with before and during our trip. Thank you!
We stayed at Alexandra and Oliviers house for six days in June. We were a group of 6 adults and 4 teenagers. The house was perfect for us, with enough rooms and a great kitchen and outdoor area. For a group of 10 it was a bit little equipment, but it was well organized and practical. The surrounding area was very nice and friendly, and we loved the atmosphere in Noe Valley. The Whole Foods Marked with in walking distance made it easy to get great groceries. Public transportation with bus and muni was very accessible, bus 24 and the tram from Castro to down town. Alexandra was very friendly and engaged in our stay and wellbeing, and responded immediately at our requests. We loved the stay and the whole experience, and we would love to come back.
The pleasure was ours Eli. We are very happy that your stay with us went well and made your long trip from home worth it. We appreciate the wonderful book you gave us about Norway. Its stunning! We would definitely love to visit someday , and will ping you. Thank you again.
Really a great place for stay. We live this place for 4 days and had very good experience. Olivier is very nice, and left us a bottle of wine which is good.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in San Francisco.
The accomodations provided by Alexandra and Olivier suited our needs very well. As a group of 6 adults and 1 toddler, we found the home spacious, well supplied with amenities and we truly appreciated the sense of space and light that the décor provided. It was wonderful to have an outdoor area. Our grandson really liked to be able to go out of doors to play in a safe place.
It was lovely to arrive to a chilled bottle of wine and a supply of coffee as well as sundry food items.
The location is close to Whole Foods so grocery shopping was easy. Also, having a bus stop at the corner was great as we used public transit for most of our stay. Having a child friendly playground just a few blocks away was something else we appreciated.
As a group, we were pretty independent, but we appreciated getting texts throughout the week asking if our hosts could assist in any way.
Should we ever return to San Francisco we would love to stay in the same home again and would certainly recommend it to others.
