About This Listing
Top floor, lots of sun, spacious rooms, rooftop garden sanctuary with grill, beautiful fully equipped kitchen, close to public transportation and 2 highways, but far enough to not be noisy at all.
Our home is on the top floor of a 2 unit Mediterranean style bldg., complete with bougainvillea climbing up the side of the house, and is located in sunny and warm Noe Valley. The home was built in 1928, has lots of charm and detail and its rooms are very sunny and large. The bedroom has a comfy cozy queen size Sleep Number bed. We remodeled the kitchen which now includes concrete counter tops, stainless steel appliances including a Bosch dishwasher, Viking stove and oven, hood, back splash, the sink and GE refrigerator. We love to cook so the kitchen is stocked with all the essential cookware, spices, etc. There is a Weber gas grill on the rooftop deck which is right off the kitchen.
Guests will have access to the entire flat.
Interaction with Guests
As much as needed.
Noe Valley is home to not only the working class, but (website hidden) millionaires, Hollywood film crews, politicos and everything in between; and everybody gets along swimmingly. It's full of bistros, upscale restaurants, home-decor boutiques, pet boutiques, and chic clothing shops. It is a prosperous, shopper-friendly neighborhood whose coffee shops and bookstores are always lively.
The hills that surround Noe Valley give it an air of remoteness and removal from the city, yet it's centrally located to everything in SF - downtown, Japan Town, the ocean, Golden Gate Park, Fisherman's Wharf, China Town, etc. Remember, SF is only 7 square miles. And SF is within a few hours drive to the Redwood Forest, Lake Tahoe, Yosemite National Park, the Napa Vineyards, and much more.
We are about 10 blocks from the highway, close enough to get out of the city easily, but not close enough to hear highway traffic. We are 2 blocks from the street car (MUNI) to downtown SF or to the ocean, and about 15 blocks (pretty walk) to the subway (BART) to downtown SF, Oakland, Berkeley, other East Bay cities, and to the SF airport.
Other Things to Note
A review from a past guest:
We spent a weekend in Deanna and Janet's beautiful apartment in the summer of 2013 and enjoyed it very much! The apartment was immaculate, beautifully furnished and very comfortable. We were very close to a variety of public transportation which we prefer use when in San Francisco. The outdoor patio was a nice place to enjoy our morning coffee. They were easy to communicate with, and their stay at our house went very well, too. We would definitely exchange with them again! Val and Abram

We're on the top floor, so it is required that you not wear shoes while in the apartment.
Janet and Deanna have a beautiful home. This was my second time staying there and I loved it. The took care of every detail, providing coffee and half and half for me and carefully writing out the tv instructions for my husband. I love staying here and hope to do it again. Thank you again, Jane
Janet and Deanna made their home most comfortable for my husband and myself. The pictures do not lie. It is beautiful and up to date. The kitchen was fully stocked with a goody bag in refrigerator. As an indication how much we loved it, we are returning in 3 months.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Janet and Deanna's beautiful home. Located in a quiet street in Noe Valley, it gave us an alternative perspective on San Francisco to the city centre, but was still close to shops, coffee houses and public transport links making it really easy to get out and about, either locally or into the city centre.
Our hosts made our stay really easy, including all the instructions for the stay, helpful contact numbers, leaving us some delicious food to get us started, and providing useful maps and guide to the local neighbourhood.
The apartment was spacious, bright, spotless, beautifully appointed, cared for and felt like a very luxurious and relaxing place to spend the last few days of our holiday. We especially enjoyed eating breakfast on the terrace.
We were very sad to say goodbye to the apartment and stay there again in a heartbeat.
Thank you Fiona for your wonderful review and your helpful feedback. Of course your emails were not bothersome in the least but I understand how I could better manage that, I appreciate it. Thank you for the brochures on the walks around town, they will be very helpful for the next guest.
I'm so glad your stay was good, thank you for being a great guest.
Janey and Deanna have a beautifully decorated apartment. Clean and organized, we loved the colors they chose for everything, and the layout is fantastic! Big and spacious, we would definitely love to stay here on every visit back to SF! They also left us some juices and milk in the fridge, which was pleasent surprise when we first got in.
About the Host, Janet And Deanna
We love our home, and we know you will too. Janet is a chiropractor and loves to work with and heal people. Deanna works for a start up which means she loves growing things (she is a retired landscaper designer too!). We've lived in this home since 1994 and will probably spend the rest of our lives here. We love to relax and be comfortable, while being surrounded by beautiful things.
