The Space

Located in Noe Valley on 29th at Church, our two story Edwardian house has a balcony overlooking our charming garden with a view of Bernal Hill. The house has high ceilings, bay windows, two bathrooms (each with shower and tubs, and one with a large claw foot tub), two living rooms with hardwood and bamboo floors and a spiral staircase, laundry room ( free washer & dryer), kitchen with gas stove, and an outdoor gas BBQ. It is set back off of the street so it is very quiet, you almost forget you live in a city and feel like you have stepped back in time. You would share the house with two other housemates who have busy career schedules.

Located 1/2 block away from the J-Church train (it takes 20 minutes to get to downtown SF) and surrounded by a plethora of nice restaurants (Japanese, Thai, Indian, Latin, California-fusion, Italian, Southern, Chinese, and more), coffee houses and fantastic local produce market and a butcher shop - this house is in the heart of a vibrant little up-scale neighborhood. The neighborhood is safe, quiet, tasteful and there are stunning walks up little canyons just 15 minute-walks away from the house. It's a great place to get to know SF and also a superb location for someone needing a calm space to return to since the house is set off the main street. The neighborhood has a great walkability score of 88/100 - See neighborhood description here too: (website hidden)

We have always had wonderful people living in this house. So it has a glowing vibe and we want to continue that trend. We are looking for a clean person with integrity and warmth. Sorry, no smokers, no hard drugs, and no animals.

We keep the house clean and expect the same from our guests.

The room is a quiet, cozy medium size bedroom, that includes a queen size bed, new mattress with linens, night stand, dresser, and large closet and mirror. It is located on the 1st floor of the house, with new burber carpet, and all white walls. The Room is especially quiet and gets nice afternoon sun.

Space includes: the furnished bedroom, use of common areas, all utilities, WiFi, free laundry in house, Cable TV with all Premium movie channels, and good amount of storage space (no storage for furniture).

We enjoy guests, so please email us a little bit about you and your travel plans along with your reservation. We are very much looking forward to meeting you!

Thank you, Polina

  • Polina's place was perfect. I'd definitely come back. The location was perfect for me and the place was very spacious.

  • Polina and Tom's place was the perfect place for my one month stay. Everything in my bedroom was clean and organized, the bathroom was next to the room, and there was also a living room downstairs that I could use freely. I had everything I needed, and full use of the kitchen and laundry room. The location of the house in Noe Valley was also ideal, right at the J Muni stop, close to 24th and Noe shopping area, and with all of the basics within a couple of blocks. Tom and Polina were also very nice, welcoming and chill people. Enjoyed my stay. Thank you!

  • Nice place, great neighborhood. Polina and Tom are really nice, and will help you out if you need anything.

  • Polina and Tom were friendly; they were very busy with their vacation preparations, but still took time to talk to me and offer assistance when I fell ill. Having use of the kitchen was one of the reasons why I chose this room; this was possible once Polina and Tom had left on their well-deserved vacation. The room is rather small, but has nice furniture and a very, very comfortable bed. The view is nothing to write home about. The size is ok, since you have access to the living room. Ideally I would have preferred having the entire space to myself (Polina kept some of her stuff in my room). The downstairs living room is pleasant, overlooking much greenery, which I like, but which also did not leave much sunlight in.
    Having access to washer/drier is a bonus. The house is set back from the street and is very quiet. Church is a mere 2 minute walk away, 24th Street can be reached on foot in 15 minutes. A great location and friendly hosts.

  • Polina and Tom were great hosts! Their house is very welcoming, the room is very nice and very quiet, the bed was a delight.
    The house is very close to store / public transportation /restaurants.
    Polina and Tom were very kind, always ready to help if I had question regarding the city and always ready to share the delicious food Polina cooks.
    Hope the place will be free when I plan my next visit to San Francisco!

  • Polina and Tom were great hosts! First, I really liked the neighborhood. This part of Noe Valley is nice and quiet, yet still close to the action -- walking distance to the Mission. Also walking distance is a whole bunch of restaurants and shops on Dolores St just around the corner. Another thing I liked is that it's relatively easy to park on the street in this neighborhood, which is not true of most parts of town. Big relief over places like SoMa or Pacific Heights, where it's basically impossible to park your car.

    The unit itself is set back from the street, so it's particularly quiet. Although the room you get is not huge (the bed takes up most of the space), it's perfectly comfortable and you do have use of the spacious downstairs living room. Polina and Tom live upstairs, so there's plenty of privacy. Altogether a pleasant, incident-free stay with gracious and respectful hosts in a great part of San Francisco.
