Hummingbirds and butterflies flutter and zigzag between branches and feed from flowers in the designer succulent garden. Listen to the sound of bamboo as the breeze rolls over the hillside, all the while cozying up to the contemporary comforts of this large newly remolded basement level Victorian cottage apartment. All are welcome.
Welcome to your relaxing getaway! We know you will enjoy your lovely private apartment with gated entrance in this 1906 Victorian gem in Noe Valley. Most of the original architectural details of the exterior are still beautiful and intact while the inside has been upgraded to comfortable, contemporary standards with tasteful furnishings, art on the walls, and large glass doors opening to a large beautiful enclosed balcony which overlooks a magical, succulent garden. You will love our fresh linens and towels, wonderful kitchen and cozy bedding.
Whether you want to stay in and veg out on the soft sofa watching Showtime and cable, meditate on the balcony listening to the wind, chimes, birds and the sounds of nature or travel 10 minutes to a Michelin starred restaurant and then catch some theater, you have found the spot.
Enjoy tea in the morning on the beautiful enclosed balcony overlooking the greenhouse and garden, do yoga in one of the many nearby yoga studios or parks, have an amazing hike in Glen Canyon Park or go for a San Francisco walk with some of the most incredible views of the city just minutes away. You will find your vacation niche here.
Please note that there are a few stairs in the apartment itself and about 8 stairs in the stairwell leading in and out of the apartment.
We are happy greet you upon arrival if available. If for some reason we are unable to meet you keys and entrance instructions are easily accessible.
Please note that the lower level apartment does not have access to the greenhouse or garden per say, however, the enclosed balcony is situated within it and has amazing views of it.
Interaction with guests
We're happy to help and very responsive to whatever questions or needs you may have - as well as let you do your own thing in privacy and comfort.
The lower level apartment is below our private residence where we live year round. The only shared space is the detached laundry room next to the apartment. Dogs live in the house upstairs but have no access to the lower level apartment.
