Our studio apartment in located on the first floor of our house here in Noe Valley, on the hill between the Valley and Twin Peaks. It is newly renovated with a full kitchen and bathroom and set up for guests with basic grocery and bath needs. The bed is a queen sized bed with luxurious bedding, and there is a dining area set for two. There is wireless internet access but no television. An iPod dock is provided for your music.
Noe Valley is in central San Francisco. Our home is 5 blocks from Castro Street and the busy shopping/ restaurant district of 24th Street. Our street is a small one block street with no busses or traffic, it's very quiet and peaceful while still being centrally located. Public Transit is pretty easy, the 48 bus runs right by our house and if you walk down the hill there are several lines.
Our house is on a fairly steep hill (it's all relative in SF!) with two flights of stairs and an uneven ramp so if your mobility is limited this might not be the best option (PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS - ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE BOOKING FOR SOMEONE ELSE). Parking is very easy on our street since there are no resident sticker requirements and no one from the neighborhood wants to climb our hill.
In the Noe Valley district, lots of nice shopping and dining in the area.
Yes the 48 line stops a couple blocks away. Close to BART.
No groups larger than two persons allowed, no parties/ overnight guests.
Fantastic - Isaac's studio apartment was great! Superb area with amazing local coffee shops and restaurants. Really enjoyed our trip to San Francisco! Thanks Isaac.
The space was great! Very comfy studio with a cozy bed nook and a view from the bathroom like no other. Isaac was easy to get ahold of and very accommodating. Beautiful garden in the front yard. Noe Valley is charming and the apartment is atop the steepest hill I've ever climbed, I loved it after all the food we were eating but for those with hip/knee problems, there's always uber!!
My wife and I are first time travellers to SF and airbnb users. The neighborhood in Noe Valley is really amazing and overall we were satisfied with the studio and the price was a bargain.
You can get dt or anywhere else innSfbvia mission and 24th bart. Getting to the bart is about a 20 min walk, $10 cab or $7 uber ride. Castro (famous g&l block) is 20 min walk up a hill... Great bars to party in.
The studio is exactly how the pictures show. Some pros: Isaac was great and accommodating on our late flight and he responded to our questions right away, good location with great restaurants nearby, kitchen is well equipped and saved us a few $ for meals we cooked in (Whole Foods and Walgreen's is 5-7 min walk away) Some cons, the light pours into the house in the morning (so if you want to sleep in...bring an eye mask), the bed is a bit high off the ground (tough for my wife but there is a step stool so again not a big deal), also the bed was a bit short so just be aware.
An FYI, the bathroom does not have a door but a curtain. Not a big deal for my wife and I but just a heads up if you travel with friends...
Overall we would stay there again. If you want the Hilton, be prepared to pay $225-275/night... If you want a clean place for a good price, I would recommend this studio.
I had a great time at Isaac's studio! A cute cozy apartment situated on a quiet street in central SF. The apartment may be a bit of a tight squeeze if you're not traveling with someone you've very comfortable with - there is no door on the bathroom (rather a curtain) and the space is small, but definitely a nice space for an individual, couple, or two close traveling companions. The area of town is gorgeous and Isaac's apartment is close to restaurants, shops, etc and in reasonable walking distance to several other great SF neighborhoods, such as the Castro and the Mission - however, as Isaac mentions in the apartment description, definitely be ready to walk up and down some serious hills! Isaac made the check-in and check-out process extremely easy and convenient and was responsive while simultaneously being very respectful of our space and privacy. I'd definitely recommend staying at his studio!
Great host and wonderful place! Very nice neighborhood and close to everything! Isaac was very helpful when contacted but also was not a bother at all! Very professional and would highly recommend!
Great apartment in awesome location in Noe Valley. Isaac was a fantastic host, very helpful and attentive to any requests or questions.
A SF native I have lived here all my life. I teach Tai Chi and martial arts and live with my cat Mini. The studio was renovated a few years ago and i really enjoy sharing it. I like to entertain and to cook. I hope you will enjoy the studio and my wonderful city as much as i do.
