Review 5618: Owner, Lynne's Noe Valley VRBO


Review by SL Jones from US who is a SlowTrav Contributor

1bed/1bath apartment in San Francisco, California


September 2013, 5 nights


Lynne's is a small Noe Valley apartment, clean and stylish, in a great location. At the end of each day, we were happy to retreat from the vibrancy of the San Francisco center to this quiet neighborhood. Coffee and bagels were close at hand for morning.

It is located a half block from the J line streetcar. This gets you into the center of San Francisco along Church St. and past Mission Dolores Park before entering the underground rails with other fast transit. This take 10-15 minutes and is certainly affordable with a MUNI pass. It is also two short blocks from the 24th Street corridor of small businesses - shops, cafes and restaurants. Church St. also has a selection of appealing places to eat. Noe Valley is an upscale family neighborhood, with lots of old houses of iconic San Francisco style.

Lynne's apartment feels very secure and is quiet. Lynne lives above. She takes very good care of this place, and expects you to do the same. As a renter, I appreciate this. She is friendly and available, with lots of helpful advice.

The whole apartment has good natural light. Though small, it is efficiently designed and we felt we had plenty of space. It is immaculately clean, and has warm but contemporary style.

There is an enclosed back yard, with lovely plants. The kitchen is small but provides everything you need for snacking and eating simply. A small living room has a useful table, a small hide-a-bed sofa and French doors to an outdoor table. The bedroom is especially nice. The queen bed is very comfortable and the room is quite large. Storage in closets and drawers is copious. A TV is provided there, as well as a nice arm chair. The apartment is well equipped with the basics, and you can talk with Lynne about the use of her washer and dryer. There is garage parking for an extra fee.

We felt that this was an excellent value and would stay here again.
