DESCRIPTION: A bright, fully private large two-bedroom apartment with a separate entrance, located right in the heart of picturesque Noe (No-ee) Valley. This well-appointed stylish accommodation is perfect as an executive apartment or vacation rental (32 day minimum lease required). It is clean, secure, smoke-free and pet & eco-friendly.

LOCATION: Nestled in the heart of Noe Valley of San Francisco, the apartment is uniquely perched overlooking the city and the bay, but without having to climb any hills to get to the house. Noe Valley is also blessed as having one of the sunniest and warmest neighborhoods in the city – an important consideration here in San Francisco. And Noe Valley is known for its up-scale desirability and charm -- boasting trendy restaurants, bakeries, wine & cheese shops, fashionable apparel boutiques, floral shops and public transportation.

SIZE & LAYOUT: This apartment is a completely private two-bedroom apartment. Ascending one flight of stairs from the street accesses the portico and front door. It has an entry hall, large living room, formal dining room as well as a separate kitchen with a built-in breakfast bar and a full size bath. The two bedrooms adjoin a private deck with a spectacular panoramic view of the city and the bay.

QUALITY FURNISHINGS: Appointed with high-quality mission style furniture, the living room includes a leather couch & chairs, a rocking chair, solid oak coffee & end tables and an antique sideboard. A working fireplace and original artwork complete this warm and inviting space. A mission style dining set for six with a built-in period hutch adorn the formal dining room. The master bedroom, also decorated in mission style, boasts a queen-size bed with two nightstands, a dresser and a chest. The second bedroom features a full size bed with two nightstands and matching. The kitchen features a breakfast bar with three chairs. Original, elegant wall hangings and area rugs enhance the apartment’s ambiance.

PRIVATE DECK: You’ll enjoy exclusive use of your own spacious wood deck featuring a beautiful view of the bay, the city and the garden below. You will find that this space can be a tranquil sanctuary in the middle of the bustling city. Deck furniture includes a gas BBQ, a patio dining set for five and a gas heat lamp.

BUSINESS AMENITIES: Secured high-speed wireless internet is included in the rent. A shared laser printer/copier/scanner/fax machine is also connected to the network. Your own private phone line with unlimited domestic long distance calls and two cordless phones are also included (international calls require your own calling card). “3G” & “4G” cell phone reception is excellent.

ENTERTAINMENT: A 42” flat-screen HDTV, equipped with DVD player and cable box is installed in the living room. Local & premium cable channels plus many free on-demand programs are available, free of charge. An additional 20” flat screen HDTV is set up in the master bedroom. An I-pod compatible stereo alarm clock is also provided in the master bedroom.

FULLY EQUIPPED STAINLESS-STEEL KITCHEN: This period-like kitchen is equipped with all the higher end modern appliances, such as a double basin sink with disposal, an ultra quiet Bosch automatic dishwasher, a professional DCS five-burner gas range, a French-door style refrigerator/freezer, a coffee maker and an 1100-watt microwave. High quality kitchen utensils, dishes, glassware, flatware and cookware also provided.

SLEEPING ACCOMMODATIONS: You’ll have sweet dreams on either queen-sized premium memory-foam mattress. All high thread-count cotton sheets are provided

BATH: The bathroom features a full size tub/shower, sink and commode as well as a large toiletry cabinet. All cotton bath towels are provided.

SEPARATE SHARED LAUNDRY ROOM: A modern washer/gas dryer, utility sink and iron with ironing board are included.

TRANSIT & PARKING: We are just steps away from the Muni streetcars (J & F-lines) and busses (48-line), the Genentech & Google shuttle coaches and a ten minute walk to BART (24th St Station) and the 24 bus line. This makes getting around town a breeze without a car. Street parking is also available.

LOCAL CONVENIENCES: A “Whole Foods” super-market is a four-minute walk away. Additionally, a convenience store is within a baseball throw from the house, as is a dry cleaning/laundry business. Numerous banks and real-estate agencies are also close-by.

WALKING: We recommend exploring Noe Valley on foot (WalkScore of 97 out of 100; see “Walker's Paradise”). Noe Valley is a safe, well-lit, police patrolled, up-scale neighborhood that is pedestrian friendly. Loads of charming, eye-popping Victorian homes that escaped the fire of 1906 adorn the neighborhood.

FITNESS & BICYCLING: Two local fitness clubs are right around the corner and Castro’s “Gold’s Gym” is a short streetcar ride away. Bicycle rentals are just down the street.

PET-FRIENDLY: Your quiet, friendly dog (under 60 pounds) or cat is welcomed. Large, lockable doggy doors lead to the backyard for safe 24/7 pet relief and we will take care of any backyard clean-up. (Backyard is restricted to pets only.) An enclosed kitty litter box is also available for your cat’s use. A doggy/kitty-cat bed is also provided for your pet.

ECO-FRIENDLY: This apartment is equipped with roof-top electric solar panels, renewable bamboo wood floors & ipe wood decks, environmentally friendly insulation, energy conserving compact fluorescent light bulbs, motion activated switches, energy-saving appliances, water-conserving toilets & shower heads, a new large-capacity gas-saving water heater and a central-air heater with an easy to use thermostat.
