The Space

THIS CHARMING ONE-BEDROOM APARTMENT is located in San Francisco's Noe Valley, which is the city's most desirable neighborhood for families and young professionals. The apartment has a private secure entrance from the street. The building dates from 1908, but the interior space was completely remodeled (from the studs) in 2007. The apartment has 9 1/2 foot ceilings, refinished original douglas fir wood floors and many other period details.

THE BEDROOM has a queen-size high end custom bed, two night tables, a cherrywood chest of drawers, and a large closet.

THE LIVING ROOM sofa converts into a full-size bed with a traditional bed-type mattress (not a thin sofabed mattress). The living room also has a 40" flat screen TV with cable & DVR.

A BEAUTIFUL GARDEN is just outside the living room French doors. The garden has flowering shrubs and a large hot tub!

THE KITCHEN is fully stocked with a gas range, blender, coffee maker, other appliances, pots & pans, and utensils. There also is a large gas grill on the garden patio.

THE BATHROOM contains an original marble counter and porcelain sink along with a full-sized modern bath tub. There is also a new full-length mirror in the door.

THE BUILDING contains three flats. This apartment is the ground floor "in-law" unit. There are two larger flats above. On the top floor is my family (my wife, myself, and our 3-year-old son). On the middle floor are my cousin's residence and my office. We all share access to the garden and hot tub.

OUR STREET AND NEIGHBORHOOD. We are on a quiet block with easy free street parking, but only 1/2 block to 24th Street, one of San Francisco's top restaurants and shopping districts. Whole Foods Market is only 4 blocks away, as is a large Saturday Farmer's Market with live music, prepared foods, and amazing produce from around California. Our corner also boasts a park with children's playground, tennis and basketball courts. The Noe Valley branch of the public library is a block and a half away. Continue down 24th Street a few more blocks and you are in the Mission District, home to dozens of the best bars, restaurants and shops in the City. Or leave our house and walk a different direction; in six blocks you will be in the Castro district, the heart of the City, with many more attractions.

PARKING is free on the street and easily available at most times.

PUBLIC TRANSIT is also plentiful and easy. The bus stops on our corner and goes directly in 5 minutes to the 24th Street BART station. (You can also walk to BART, which takes about 20 minutes). There are other city (Muni) bus and streetcar lines within a few blocks, which go downtown and to other neighborhoods. Public transit from the apartment to the downtown area takes less than 30 minutes. You can easily get to SFO (40 minutes) and OAK airports (1 hour) via BART.

OUR EXACT LOCATION is very close to the corner of "Douglass St & 24th St, San Francisco, CA".

The Neighborhood

NOE VALLEY is truly the best neighborhood in San Francisco. Because it is on the eastern side of the coastal mountains that divide the city, it is protected from much of the summer fog, keeping it sunny and warm. The neighborhood was built at the turn of the 20th century and still is mostly made up of Victorian and Edwardian buildings, mostly single-family or two-family homes. There are no high rises, and traffic is minimal, so the neighborhood is a great place to have a family, and you will see lots of kids. At the same time, because it is on the southern side of the city, it is closer to Silicon Valley, and many tech professionals have moved in, creating a demand for excellent restaurants and shopping.

OUR STREET We are on a quiet, flat block with easy free street parking. We are 1/2 block from 24th Street, one of San Francisco's top streets for restaurants and shopping districts. Whole Foods Market is only 4 blocks away, as is a large Saturday Farmer's Market with live music, prepared foods, and amazing produce from around California.

OUR CORNER boasts a park with children's playground, tennis and basketball courts. The Noe Valley branch of the public library is a block and a half away.

THE MISSION DISTRICT is just 8 blocks to the east from the apartment. Take a direct 5 minute bus or walk 20 minutes to be in the midst of dozens of the best bars, restaurants and shops in the City. "The Mission" gets its name from the Mission Dolores, founded in 1776 by Spanish missionaries.

THE CASTRO DISTRICT is just 6 blocks to the north from the apartment. Take another bus 5 minutes or walk 15 minutes to get there. The Castro was the traditional center of San Francisco's gay community and still is the heart of the annual Pride Festival. There are many great restaurants and bars there as well, as well as CIty's best movie theater and many other attractions.

From Noe Valley, you can easily get anywhere in the City

Getting around

Noe Valley is in the geographic center of San Francisco, which makes it very easy to get around.

PUBLIC TRANSIT is plentiful and easy. The Muni bus stops on our corner and goes directly in 5 minutes to the 24th Street BART station, which connects to downtown, to the airports and throughout the Bay Area. (You can also walk to BART, which takes about 20 minutes). There are other city (Muni) bus and streetcar lines within a few blocks, which go downtown and to other neighborhoods. Public transit from the apartment to the downtown area takes less than 30 minutes. You can easily get to SFO (40 minutes) and OAK airports (1 hour) via BART.

PARKING is free on the street and easily available at most times.

TAXIS are easy to get, particularly if you have a smartphone. I can provide more information when you arrive about the apps to use, which allow you to get a cab or limo in less than 5 minutes.

WALKING and BIKING are also quite possible. Yes, there are hills, but they are probably less steep than you fear. We have done many walking and biking trips from the house to points all around the city, including Golden Gate Park, Ocean Beach, the Golden Gate Bridge, downtown, and many other places.

  • I truly loved to stay a couple of days at Adam's place. It's in a calm area and still easy accessible by public transportation. Near to the trendry 24th street. All kitchen facilities are present, even an iron. The garden is nice though it could use some clean up action. The sound travels very easily through the building so you have to keep that in mind.
    Arriving at dark it was difficult to recognize the house number (I think there wasn't even one for 833. The street lights were too dim to help me. So a point of improvement is to make the house number more visible in the dark.

  • We stayed in Adam's apartment in Noe Valley for 3 nights. The place is very comfortable, clean, and located in a great neighborhood. Adam was a polite, responsive, and flexible host. We would definitely recommend his place to others visiting the area.

    March 2014
  • Stayed five nights at this property and were very pleased. We appreciated Adam's professionalism in managing the booking, check in, etc. The location was perfect for us - in a quiet part of Noe Valley, but half a block from some of the best coffee in the city (Phillz) and just a couple blocks from good restaurants,va Whole Foods, cafés, bakeries, and the streetcar line downtown. Free unrestricted parking is doable in the neighborhood, but we had to hike up a few steep blocks to find it each day. The unit is a garden level type, but has high ceilings and good lighting. The kitchen and bathroom are very nice for a garden apartment. The bed was of medium firmness - not to soft or hard. A few minor downsides of one wants to be picky (it wouldn't be an honest review without a few downsides, right?) - footsteps from the unit upstairs were loud on occasion, but we were never bothered early in the morning or late at night. The shower temperature was warm enough for comfort, but not piping hot like some like. Bottom line, this unit was a great choice for us in SF, and we would choose it again in the future.

    March 2014
  • Adam's place is beautiful and very well located. The place had everything I needed. The backyard area was lovely. My only issue was getting in (my fault for not properly finding the instructions). If you are particular about noise -- know that noise does carry quite easily through the various apartments in the building. It didn't bother me at all, but just wanted to share for others incase.

    February 2014
  • Adam has a very clean, conveniently located true one bedroom apartment. Everything was just as he described it and we had a perfectly nice time with no hitches or problems. Thanks!

    January 2014
  • Great space! Very convenient to the heart of Noe Valley.

    December 2013
  • Very neat apartment and well organized. It's located on the back side of the house, so it's quiet. Also includes heating in the leaving room + bedroom (useful when I stayed during mid-November).
    All in all, great place!

    November 2013
  • We had a wonderful stay in this cute apartment.
    And the hot tub was definitely a plus!
