Noe Valley apartment description

From Nov. 1, 2014 onward: AVAILABLE.
Minimum stay: 31 nights.

Some people find it's a better deal to stay 20 nights at our place and pay the monthly rate, as opposed to paying 20 nights to stay somewhere else. No problem, we don't require you to stay the whole time, although the 31 nights will be reserved in your name. Feel free to contact us for an accurate rate quote based on the specific dates of your stay.

Be sure that the width of your car (including side mirrors) allows you to park with enough room to get out on the driver's side. ---LENGTH: 200 inches (~16 ft).--- Be careful when choosing your rental car; some sedans are longer than you think.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: We are Jeff and Rachel, the owners of SF Vacation Hut; we live in the apartment upstairs. We love swing dancing, hiking, live music, record stores, vegan food, outdoor street festivals, and going for long walks or bike rides all over town. We have a combined total of 30 years of experience living in San Francisco and would be happy to help answer your questions about our city.

                      Why the Owner Chose Noe Valley:
                      We are in one of the sunniest parts of town, right next to the Mission. It's easy to walk to the J-Church light rail line (only 5 minutes), as well as shopping and night life in Bernal Heights, Noe Valley, and the Mission. We are next to the 'bike freeway,' aka Valencia Street, which connects easily to the 'Wiggle,' leading to the Panhandle, Golden Gate Park, and Ocean Beach (one of Rachel's favorite rides). Within a 5-minute (very flat) walk you'll find Noeteca coffee & wine bar, Locavore (our hippest new restaurant), Martha's Coffee, Baby Blues BBQ, Amberjack Sushi, Safeway, New Alternatives Cafe, 26th & Guerrero Natural Foods, THE FRONT PORCH, Luv a Java, Mitchell's Ice Cream, Mi Lindo Peru, and Omnivore Books (a whole bookstore just for cookbooks!). Yes, this is Foodie Heaven. We're a quick (20 minutes) uphill hike to the top of Bernal Heights. On the way up, you'll follow an enchanting garden stairway, with a slide (for kids and kids at heart) that matches the contour of the hill. When you get to the top, you'll be rewarded with VIEWS VIEWS VIEWS! Including Golden Gate Bridge, the SF-Oakland Bay Bridge, Twin Peaks ... don't miss it! We're a 20-minute walk from the wonderful people watching and city views at Dolores Park. It's easy to get to Fisherman's Wharf, Union Square, Chinatown, Alcatraz, SF Museum of Modern Art, and the cable cars from SF Vacation Hut ... just take the J-Church or BART to get downtown; then, either walk or take the cable cars, trolleys, buses, or historic streetcars. (From the BART station, it's only a 5-minute train ride to get downtown.) Noe Valley is a large neighborhood, geographically; 'our part' of Noe Valley has easy access to the 280 freeway via San Jose Avenue and the 101 freeway via Cesar Chavez. We are less than a 20-minute taxi ride from SFO Airport (24 min. on BART), 30 min. drive from Oakland's airport, and 60 min. from San Jose Airport. You'll be amazed by how convenient everything is!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      Our guest apartment is very clean and new; we've taken care to furnish it as a calming retreat after a busy day. We call it SF Vacation Hut because it is a true studio with only one room (aside from the hallway, bathroom, and laundry room) where everything happens ... cooking, sleeping, working, and relaxing ... so you could say its a modern version of the 'family hut' from traditions gone by. We (Jeff and Rachel) live upstairs and want to help you have a relaxing and enjoyable stay. As mentioned in the main description, you'll love the welcome package, with breakfast foods, social beverages, fresh flowers and chocolates, included! We've taken care of many of the practical details so you can make yourself at home and live like a true San Franciscan ... whether you're staying for a month or only a few days.
