My 3 short days at the Noe Valley VRBO were perfect! Originally I had expected the hot tub to be the premier benefit but actually it turned out to be the J Church line right around the corner. One night I came back from the Embarcadero to the apartment on the J Church line at 11 - felt safe and easy. And I'm not young anymore!
The apartment was cute, well - stocked with all you might need.
I'll come back during the beautiful weather to enjoy the incredible garden space!
Initially I was skeptical of using VRBO, but after sifting through many,many,many apartments on the website, my boyfriend and I chose this one. Mostly because of the amenities and reasonable price.
About the apartment: The apartment was great, even better than the pictures. Clean ( I'm pretty picky), cozy, in what seemed to be a safe neighborhood. The hot tub and patio area were the highlight of my stay. We were in a close proximity to public transportation. Michael and Brad take pride in their cottage and were intuitive to all of our needs to the point where we didn't have to ask for anything, yet they were not intrusive.
My only complaints: the apartment was very cold the first night so bring socks. Also in the guest book the previous guests described Michael and Brad as being exceedingly friendly and welcoming hosts. I didn't really get that sense. Perhaps I’m being over sensitive, or the other reviews inflated my expectations, or I just give off the vibe of a private person ( which I am). They were however polite.
Over-All: This is a gem. I would whole-heartedly recommend staying here to anyone. I will definitely be staying in a VRBO apartment on my next trip as opposed to a hotel room. The freedom and space is unparalleled. We had a great experience overall.
I would recommend: biking over the golden gate bridge, musee' mecanique, trying exotic foods in china town, and checking to see if Coit tower is still closed for construction, before heading all the way up the hill.
We appreciated the help and attention we received from Michael and Brad before and during our stay. The warm welcome from our hosts on arrival was very much appreciated.
We would definitely return if we get an opportunity. As sightseers we were especially happy with the convenience of local public transport. We enjoyed using the hot tub, but some kind of screen for privacy would be a plus there. Also a smaller lighter dining table in the kitchen area could be so much easier to use. Everything was exactly as described if not better. The garden is so well cared for, so beautiful and so tranquil and the interior of the apartment so peaceful that we wished we could have stayed longer. We would endorse all of the positive comments from so many other happy past tenants. Thank you Brad and Michael.
This condo exceeded my expectations in every way! Michael and Brad(condo owners) were so organized and diligent and wanted to ensure everything was perfect for my arrival. Upon my arrival I was greated by Michael and he gave me a quick tour of the property and provided my girlfriend and I with a bottle of wine. The condo was so clean, organized and in a fun residential part of town. The condo itself provided everything one would need(ie kitchen utensils, coffee, grill, washer and dryer, full kitchen, etc) and the backyard was gorgeous. A nice patio with a hot tub, grill and beautiful landscaping. Every morning I was welcomed with a text informing me about surrounding events. The neighborhood was quiet and friendly. The condo is close to public transportation, great coffee shops and restaurants! I can't say enough great things!!! I love this spot and we will stay here again on our next trip to SF.
We were so comfortable here while our house was getting remodeled. It's a tight space, but has everything you need, is nice and clean, and very up to date. They really thought of everything:)
How lucky we were to find this great rental in San Francisco. The apartment was everything stated but truly much more. It had everything you needed from the corkscrew to the pots/pans. Of course we never cooked because they provided us with all the various restaurants in the area for take out or dine in so why cook while on vacation! The patio area and hot tub were great after a full day of sightseeing. The muni bus system was easy to use and right around the corner. So easy to get into downtown San Francisco and be able to come back to a quiet retreat. The Noe Valley area is great! Thank you Michael and Brad for making the final leg of our west coast trip fabulous by allowing us to stay at your beautiful home.
We had the perfect hosts during our 3 day/ 4 night stay in San Francisco. We were fortunate to meet one of the owners right as we got to the door of the unit. His friendliness and "let me know if there's anything you need" demeanor immediately made us feel right at home. The cottage is really nice. It is located in a quiet area and we felt perfectly safe there. During our stay, we received very nice texts from the other owner, checking on us to see how we found the cottage, if there were any issues, and whether we'd had any trouble with any aspect of our lodging--even going so far as to ask if there were any details eluding us in the user-guide (i.e., regarding the operation of any appliances/media/Wi-Fi, etc).
Since this vacation was partly work-related, we really appreciated the availability and no-extra-charge use of the iron and ironing board, as well as the HE washer/drier. An additional nice touch was the time that they obviously took to make the detailed visitors' guide, including points of interest, bank branches, rental car agencies, transit, shopping, and restaurants.
Thank you, guys, for making us feel like well-cared-for friends welcomed into your home, rather than just guests staying in some hotel room. We will definitely recommend you to our friends.
Definitely check out XO Bakery, Tartine, and Paxti's Pizza
You can have both; a peaceful oasis in the midst of a great city. Every attention to detail is made in this great little 2 story unit. Backyard photos do not do it justice. Michael and Brad are the best hosts and were very accommodating. J car is a block away, comes frequently and in a few minutes you can be on 24th St with great shops and restaurants or a little longer ride to all SF has to offer. You can also walk to nearby stores and restaurants, grab a sandwich at a deli and look at the great views from nearby Holly Park. Simply the best!
We had a great time in San Francisco! Michael and Brad could not have been nicer or more helpful. The cottage has everything you could want. We have stayed at other VRBO and this is by far the most well stocked and organized. It was clean, the bed is very comfortable, and just feels cozy inside. The washer and dryer was also great to have. The backyard is beautiful and perfect for our Golden Retriever which they were so kind to let us bring along. It is also quiet, which is hard to find in the city. Transportation is right there, as well as a cute grocery store and coffee shop. The neighborhood is quaint and feels safe to walk around. We were sad on departure day, but we will back and hopefully soon!
We absolutely loved our stay! The unit is clean, comfortable and well appointed. The location is easily accessible by transit. There is a Safeway about 3 blocks away which made getting our groceries very easy. The hosts are friendly and very accommodating while at the same time respecting your space and privacy.
My grown son and I stayed here and we were perfectly comfortable.
Pros: Amazing hosts, location, super comfy bed, backyard & garden (it's so lovely that if you didn't know you were in the city, you wouldn't know you were in the city), hot tub (I can't stress how wonderful it was to know we had it to come back to at the end of a long day), well stocked kichen (both dishes & utensils as well as basic spices, condiments, etc), and a Keurig coffee maker. So, pretty much everything!
Cons: None that I can think of. For realsy.
Additionally, the hosts provide a ton of information to make it super easy to access the unit (instructions which include pictures) as well as great recommendations for dining in the area and locations of the closest grocery stores, drug stores, etc. It's important to note that even though the unit shares a front courtyard with another unit, it feels very private. The backyard is large and beautifully landscaped. We loved having breakfast out on the patio each morning. Parking was not an issue.
I've stayed at VRBO properties all over the country at least a dozen times and this experience simply put, was the best!
We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more! The apartment is stocked with great amenities and we really enjoyed using the hot tub on a cool San Francisco evening along with making smores over the firepit. Brad and Michael were great hosts providing us with a plethora of great info via e-mail and checking-in with us unobtrusively throughout our stay. We did have a car and were able to find street parking. Although public transport is readily available, it can take 30 minutes to an hour to get to various tourist spots throughout the city.
We really enjoyed our stay at this house. There was enough room for all of us and a great backyard. The availability of public transport was great and we used it for our trip to Alcatraz. The landlords Michael and Brad are amazing and are available to help with any questions. We'll be back to SF soon.
I absolutely recommend it!!! I´ve been using VRBO since 2006 and my stay qualifies as astounding!! Of course I had good experiences before but Michael and Brad really sets the bar high, everything is perfectly organized, clean, with instructions manuals, I´ve never seen so much attention to detail. They both are pending to your questions and any need by email, phone or text, I mean you feel just as home but better!! The unit is very comfortable, excellent location and pretty neighborhood, easy access to public transportation , several stores and restaurants nearby. Full HD TV with premium packages and high speed internet, also ALL the appliances you might need and a very nice patio, this unit really is something different and above my previous experiences, I will definitely would come back!!.
This property is in excellent condition, very clean. The owners very accomodating. The stocked kitchen was perfect for all of our cooking needs. The queen bed was so comfortable, ample towels, blankets. The backyard is a beauty. The photos were beautiful and when we arrived at the property it was even more beautiful and accommodating. I would highly recommend this property for anyone staying in the San Francisco area. We did have a car and did not have trouble with parking and the location was perfect for getting around in and out of the city. We were so happy to have found this property, thank you Michael and Brad!
Who knew this little gem was out there in the city, available for any of us mere mortals to rent! I wish I was in town longer, because this sweet two story condo type cottage had everything I would need to make a true vacation, family or otherwise! It was clean, well stocked, spacious, and it almost felt more like a B&B with its gracious and helpful hosts. I cannot wait to get back!
My family and I had so much fun staying at your home for our San Francisco vacation. Thank you so much for opening your home to us.
We had a wonderful stay in this great little oasis. Michael and Brad were perfect hosts, helpful and available without being intrusive. There are terrific restaurants, shops, public transportation and even a leashless dog park within a couple of blocks, which made for great exploring. The house itself had everything we needed and some luxuries (like the hot tub) that made it feel like a real escape. Highly recommend.
