INTRODUCTION: The “Bay View Apartment” is a bright, fully private large arts and crafts style two-bedroom apartment with a separate entrance, located right in the heart of the picturesque Noe (No-ee) Valley neighborhood of San Francisco. Built on the top level of the building, this well-appointed stylish accommodation is perfect as temporary housing or extended vacation rental (31 night minimum lease required). It is clean, secure, smoke-free and pet and eco-friendly and it’s ideally suited for up to four persons.
FLEXIBLE TERMS: This is a perfect fully furnished space, especially if your are moving in or out of the city, remodeling your home, here for an extended stay for work, visiting family or on a nice long San Francisco vacation. We offer a 30-day lease – which is the required minimum stay – and then month to month thereafter (or prorated portion thereof.) That means if you plan on staying only 31, 32, 33 nights or more, we can accommodate you!
LOCATION: Nestled in the heart of Noe Valley of San Francisco, the Bay View 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 and cheese shops, fashionable apparel boutiques, floral shops and public transportation. Other rentals like to say they are located near Noe Valley, but the Bay View Suite is right in the middle of it.
SIZE and LAYOUT: 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 and chairs, a rocking chair, solid oak coffee and 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 and second bedroom, also decorated in mission style, boasts queen-size beds with nightstands and a dresser. The kitchen features a breakfast bar with three high chairs. Original, elegant wall hangings and area rugs enhance the penthouse’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 with an umbrella.
BUSINESS AMENITIES: Secure, high-speed wireless internet and a shared laser printer/copier is available for your use. “3G” and “4G” cell phone reception is excellent.
ENTERTAINMENT: A 42” flat-screen HDTV and cable box is installed. Local and premium cable channels plus many free on-demand programs and more are available. An I-pod compatible stereo alarm clock is also provided in the master bedroom.
SEPERATE 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, toaster oven, hand-blender, and an 1100-watt microwave. High quality kitchen utensils, dishes, glassware, flatware and cookware also provided.
SLEEPING ACCOMMODATIONS FOR FOUR: You’ll have sweet dreams on either queen-sized premium memory-foam mattress. All linens are high thread-count cotton sheets.
PRIVATE BATH: A full size tub/shower and a designer sink and commode as well as a large toiletry cabinet complete this period style bathroom. All cotton bath towels are included as well.
SEPARATE SHARED LAUNDRY ROOM: A modern washer/gas dryer, utility sink and iron with ironing board are available for your use, free of charge.
MAID SERVICE: Once a month maid service is provided by our professional cleaning staff, who will change the sheets and towels, vacuum, dust, polish the wood and glass surfaces and deep clean the kitchen and bathrooms for you.
TRANSIT and PARKING: We are just steps away from the Muni streetcars (J and F-lines) and busses (48-line), the Genentech and 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 and BICYCLING: Two local fitness clubs are right around the corner and Castro’s fully equipped two-story 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.)
ECO-FRIENDLY: This apartment is equipped with roof-top electric solar panels, hard-wood floors and decks, environmentally friendly insulation, energy conserving light bulbs, motion activated switches, energy-saving appliances, water-conserving toilets and shower heads, a new large-capacity gas-saving water heater and a central-air heater with an easy to use smart thermostat.
