Noe Valley, a village of wooden Victorian houses, has a touch of the Castro’s flair and an easygoing mix of hipsters and families.

From your front door, head West to 29th and Church, the location of the gothic St. Paul’s Catholic Church. Take the J Church streetcar to 24th Street (or take a nice leisurely walk on Church Street to 24th Street). Take a left to the busy Noe Valley district. Stop for family owned coffee shop at “Martha’s Bros.” (There’s another location on Cortland Ave.) or have tea at “Lovejoy’s” or brunch at “Chloe’s Cafe”. There are a variety of restaurants, small business shops and even a “Whole Foods Market” in this neighborhood.

Noe Valley borders the Mission and is an easy stroll from the rental - it feels like a small town despite its centrality in San Francisco, making it a coveted and pricey neighborhood. As the name suggests it is bordered by hills, giving it an intimate feel. 24th Street is its main drag, full of artisanal goods stores, yoga places, and a Whole Foods that is both the biggest grocer in the neighborhood and a cause of constant traffic on the street. Like most central neighborhoods, parking is tough, but public transportation is pretty readily available, especially towards the north and east sides of the 'hood. It has a very cohesive community feeling, as evidenced by the brand new town square that sits off of 24th Street; this is the result of an organized effort by residents to turn a parking lot into a space to gather and relax in the sun. The town square now houses the wonderful Saturday Farmer’s Market, which features live music, food carts, local produce, and children's activities. Noe Valley is sunny and clean-cut, with lots of pedestrians, many with strollers and dogs. While this “downtown” strip offers most of what you need, residents farther out may find it less convenient, and some have grumbled that obscure artisanal products are more readily available here than practical items. Noe Valley is full of Victorians and small homes that add to its charm. It’s very attractive to older people and new families who love the strong community feeling and safety without compromising accessibility. It also lacks nightlife other than a few bars scattered around, but they are rarely crowded or rowdy. It can feel like a ghost town later at night and is less of a draw for younger people and students, but is a great compromise for those who want the option to head out, yet still prefer coming home to an area with less noise and activity. Those on the Mission and Castro borders are in walkable distance to plenty of city life. Noe Valley is bordered on the north by The Castro and Dolores Heights, on the east by The Mission, on the south by Glen Park, and on the west by Diamond Heights and Twin Peaks.
