The top level has an open floor plan with an inviting wrap around sectional sofa, flat screen TV, dining area that seats six, fully stocked kitchen with updated appliances, gas range, sliding glass doors that enter onto a full porch that runs the length of the building. Windows and the deck look out onto a private, colorful dense garden and koi pond. An easy to use gas grill and two sunny and private outdoor seating areas provide additional entertainment space.

The bottom floor has two bedrooms each with a queen sized bed and flat screen TV and DVD player and walk-in closets. One room has a desk that's ideal for a quiet workspace.

We feel completely safe walking around the neighborhood any time of day or night. It's a really special part of San Francisco.

Ideal for romantic getaway, families, friends get together, business trips, grandparents visiting their kids in SF -- really just about anyone who wants a delightful place to hang out -- both inside and in the garden -- that's easy to get to downtown, but quiet enough to hear the birds and sleep well.

                        What a perfect place! It had everything we needed and more. I can't thank the owners enough. Its a beautiful spot with plenty of space, deck, grill, garden and lush landscape. I couldn't get over the location as it was my first time staying in SanFrancisco. Seeing all the houses on hills and such was incredible. This condo was perfect, as you didn't have to climb to the top of anything to get to it and yet the views were stunning. The property is a perfect place as we plan on staying again. I'm so relieved as we found a "home away from home". Thanks again for allowing us to stay there and making my trip to CA a perfect vacation. The best thing I loved about the place was the cleanliness, and convenience of a washer and dryer and flat screen TV's in all the rooms. My favorite is the gardens. How amazing. Coming from the cold North East, seeing some of the indigenous landscape was truly a treat! Thanks again!

                        We had a girls get-a-away in San Francisco and were so fortunate to stay in this wonderful vacation rental. It was really great to get away from the hustle of the city and come home to this quiet oasis in Noe Valley. Waking up to the beautiful garden setting was icing on the cake. There is plenty of room for 4 girls and we really appreciated having the 2nd full bathroom. There's a Philz coffee shop around the corner - BEST coffee ever! Great restaurants - Griddle Fresh for brunch! in walking distance along with a Whole Foods and a Walgreens along the way. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this unit to anyone visiting San Francisco. Thank you, Debby and Nancy (and Mole!) for sharing your lovely home. We all have the best memories to cherish the rest of our lives. We hope to stay again soon!! ALOHA!

                        My husband and I, our daughter, and our two young granddaughters just stayed at a wonderful two story apartment in a very nice, quiet neighborhood in Noe Valley. It has everything you could want in a home away from home, including a fully equipped kitchen, new washer and dryer, beautiful backyard gardens, two bedrooms and bathrooms, a very comfortable couch upstairs, and plenty of closet space and even extra hangars! It is within walking distance to 24th Street which is a great shopping area with good restaurants, cute boutiques and stores, even a Whole Foods. We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it. The owners live upstairs and are very nice and helpful.

                        Spent 4 nights in San Francisco and the property was one of the best things we have to say about our stay. It was in a quaint area near a playground, with easy access to supermarkets and even a Thai Restaurant a few blocks away. The rooms were nice and cozy, and the view of the gardens was even nicer since the weather was cold - so seeing greenery was a nice way to start and end the day. The toys, games and even DVD collection helped manage the kids when we were home. There was everything you could need including spices for cooking, so we enjoyed making this our home the week. Parking was easy and most times right across the property. Thanks again to the owners who were very accommodating and helpful. Would definitely be the place to stay if we can make the 20+ flight to the US again!

                        It was a lovely accommodation and I don't think the pictures accurately described the property because it was much more than I anticipated. I especially liked the two areas of "outside" off the main bedroom and deck off the living area. The house was clean, uncluttered and cozy. Perfect for at least 5 people as the couch was very comfortable. Beautiful fresh flowers greeted us and the owners' son was very helpful and returned my call promptly. The owners notified us prior to our trip that the house was being painted which was nice to know ahead of time but did not impact us in the least. I just wished I knew what colours they chose. AA rating in my books. Just a note, it is a hike up the hill so I would include a notation that you can take the J train, get off and take the bus up 24th street, get off at Hoffman and walk down. But just a tidbit for people who don't like to walk uphill. They had a great book offered for restaurants, sightseeing, etc but needs to be updated. It did not deter us from any activity but there are some excellent eating areas that were missed. This however, is my opinion and part of the San Francisco adventure is to explore and find new things. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone and we were 4 ladies on a girls weekend and this was perfect. Kudo's to our hosts, their sons and even their painters!

                        Owner response: So glad you had a great time and thank you for your kind review! You bring up a great point about the hills in San Francisco. If you google San Francisco walkscore and Noe Valley, you will see that Noe Valley and our location is in the green ("very walkable") part of the City. It's all relative we guess :)

                        Our group of 2 middle aged couples stayed here for 5 nights and found the apartment to be as good if not better than the description. Spotlessly clean and comfortable with easy access to good restaurants and the muni service. Recommended bus/walk to the nearby twin peaks too.

                        We traveled to San Francisco to celebrate the birthday of a friend and chose this apartment after being referred to Noe Valley by a friend. This apartment was great, the neighborhood was super-quiet (except for the rear neighbor's rooster! :)) and friendly. We were in SF during what was apparently one of the hottest weeks of the season so we Southerners were kind of hot and missing the air conditioning. However, the quiet breeze through the wonderful garden area were soothing in the evening as we opened all the windows and doors to let the cool evening air in. This apartment is in short walking distance to so many restaurants, coffee shops, and local shopping - which we took advantage of most mornings and evenings after long days touring the city. It was great to come "home" to a quiet street each night and equally great to start our mornings with lots of neighbors walking dogs. All four of us who stayed in this apartment would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a true San Francisco experience. No hotel can compare to staying in a great apartment in a lovely, classic, SF victorian home.

                        Owner response: So glad you enjoyed! Our neighbors apparently acquired some baby chicks, one of which grew up to be a rooster! Who would have thunk in the middle of San Francisco?! He will be leaving this weekend to his new home out in the country so there will soon be no more morning crowing! Just back to the normal city soundscape.

                      Noe Valley is sunny, progressive, family friendly, and has a really vibrant personality. Located in the heart of San Francisco, it has bakeries and cafes, jazz bars, ice cream and gelato, Whole Foods grocery, cool clothing stores, interesting gift shops, great bookstores, fabulous restaurants. And it's a hop, skip, and jump from the rest of the city, which has endless, diverse attractions and people to explore.

                      We're on the same block as a community park, complete with a tennis court, basketball and a new state- of-the-art toddlers' play area. We're just around the corner from Firefly and Contigo, fantastic restaurants you won't want to miss. A few blocks away there is another playground for older children. A new fun coffee shop, recently opened on the corner.
