FABULOUS place, especially is traveling alone and concerned about safety. STORNGLY recommend!!
The apartment exceeded my expectations! My friend who lives in SF suggested I stay in Noe Valley because I (a female) would be staying alone and felt it was safe. Details: -Rachel and Jeff are the owners and very friendly, helpful, and available but were also respectful of my privacy. They live upstairs which also made me feel more safe staying there alone. -They have dedicated this apartment as a VRBO rental and have decorated and outfitted it accordingly. Has a wonderful modern, elegant, and uncluttered feel to it. Many VRBOs have the owners' personal belongings everywhere. This place did not yet it had all the amenities and comforts of a nice home. On a quiet residential street. -Excellent communication from the moment I sent an inquiry (received a call from Rachel within a couple of hours) until after I got my deposit back. -The bed was *incredibly* comfortable. I would stay there again if for nothing else than to sleep in that bed again. -Nice large closet with lots of hanging space and built-in drawers. -Fresh flowers, fruit, and a bottle of my favorite beverage in the fridge upon my arrival. -LOTS of info in a book Rachel has put together filled with maps, recommendations for places to eat, shop, visit, etc. Also it has lots of Rachel's personalized notes, things you won't find in a travel guide. She's got lots of info about restaurants with good vegetarian options if you are into that. -Don't miss the to-die-for coffee shop just down the street. Go out the door, make a left and you're there in 1-2 minutes. Called Martha & Bros. No tourists, as local as it gets. -Walking distance to 24th St. which has lots of restaurants, retail shops, etc. - Even though I took a lot of cabs (for safety and convenience) Rachel has lots of info in the book about bus lines. -My SF friend who works for a major hotel chain and used to do furnished corporate rentals was extremely impressed with the place. -Door lock has your own personalized electronic code to get in, not a key that a prior VRBO-person could copy. Again, a safety plus. -In SF they take their recycling very seriously. In the apt. there are bins for recyclables, non-recyclables, and compost. Rachel has info explaining it but if you're not used to recycling it takes some getting used to. -Would say more +s but no more space left! It's definitely worth the price and I was extremely pleased and recommend it to others. Enjoy!!
