Located on Liberty Street, an exclusive and quiet tree-lined neighborhood, just steps away from seemingly endless numbers of the outstanding restaurants, shops, galleries, markets, performance spaces, bars, and cafes that characterize the vibrant and colorful Mission/Dolores neighborhood. Walk to sunny Dolores Park or notable foodie spots including: Bar Tartine, Tartine Bakery, Delfina, Abbotts Cellar, Mission Chinese Food, Locanda, Commonwealth, Range, Xanath Ice Cream, Foreign Cinema, or the phenomenal local BiRite Market (and it’s associated creamery) that is redefining the concept of “corner store.” Valencia whole foods is just 1 block away.
With a walk score of 98 out of 100, it doesn’t get much more perfect than this. Close to the Castro, Haight Street, Noe Valley, 7 blocks to the 24th Street BART station, multiple MUNI lines within blocks, plus easy access to the 101 and 280 freeways too.
Rates based on double occupancy. Maximum occupancy is 4.
Fees for each additional person beyond 2 are $25/night (children under 2 are free).
Two night minimum. Three night minimum on all federal holidays (can be waived when less than 7 days advance).

For stays of 14 days or longer, we require an additional cleaning fee of $205 and ask that the guest accommodate the cleaners in vacating the apartment for an afternoon at their convenience.
Pets are welcome for an additional $25/day fee.
Smoking permitted in outdoor areas only and with use of ashtray.

The flat is the first floor residence of a 2-unit Victorian, where the upper floor is occupied by quiet middle-aged couple; the spiral staircase in yard is rarely used and it's primary purpose is to provide emergency access from the upstairs unit.
For folks with mobility issues – please note there are approximately 12 steps from the street level to the front door.
This residence is also not ideal for people with toddlers or other young children who are not kept under constant supervision due to the presence of original artwork within reach in most rooms.
This gorgeously restored/renovated 1885 Victorian residence is located in the heart of the Liberty-Hill Historic District. The district is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in San Francisco as a representation of nineteenth century middle class housing and was one of the earliest residential "suburbs" to be developed in the city. The neighborhood survived the fiery aftermath of the 1906 earthquake (the fires stopped 1 block away at 20th Street) and thus it is one of the few tree-lined streets boasting 100+ year old growth as well as examples of all architectural styles prevalent during between the 1860s and early 1900s.
There isn't a more diverse and dynamic neighborhood in SF! Boutique shops, ethnic eateries, small live theater venues, bakeries, cafes, world-class dining establishments, street art and murals are all within blocks of your doorstep and easily accessible by foot.
The location is mid-way between the 16th St and 24th St Bart stations. Many buses run down Valencia St. too.
Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES is smoking allowed anywhere on the property. If you must smoke, please do so on the public sidewalk in front of the house and be sure not to place butts in the garbage cans in the garage.
Quiet hours in the yard are after 9 pm on weekdays and 10 pm on weekends.
Dogs are not allowed on the furniture/beds and may not be left alone in the house or backyard at any time.
Please be respectful that others live directly above the residence and keep excessive music/TV etc noise to a minimum at all times.
Aside from a small gathering (such as a quiet dinner party) with a MAXIMUM of SIX people on the premises at any given time, parties are forbidden without prior approval. It is of the utmost importance that the upstairs residents NOT be disturbed in the least or the ability to rent this space will be revoked.

Jordie is simply the best host. Thank you for accommodating our last moment request. Space is gorgeous as ever and probably my favorite listing in San Francisco.
Our stay was great, the appartement is really adorable and calm, we enjoyed the garden a lot ( even in February), very well equipped! Great location ! Highly recommended! Jordie was very communicative and helpful, many thanks for this!!!! I will surely recommand this place to my friends :)
This is a perfect home in a perfect location. Everything about it was convenient and effortless. A perfect stay.
Jordie was quick to respond to us and the house itself is phenomenal. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the quintessential SF home!
My host, Jordie, was absolutely accomodating and helpful in every way. He arranged a Christmas tree for my family and was completely available for any questions - he is delightful and gracious. The house is absolutely stunning - it's clean and modern, has lovely art, and is stocked with lots of professional cookware, which was a plus since I love to cook! The neighborhood is quiet and lovely and walking distance to quaint shops and fabulous restaurants and markets. We had a blast and completely recommend this gorgeous property.
Jordie never fails to go above and beyond for her guests. She truly made us feel welcome to a beautiful home and was attentive, accommodating, and gracious throughout our entire stay. The location is phenomenal and I cannot wait to book again!
The house is the most gorgeous and modern victorian house I have seen before. Extremely bright, comfortable and packed with art and beautiful furniture. I couldn't believe there were even 2 redwoods in the backyards!
Jordie was extremely helpful and accommodating, shared lots of insightful info about the area and always just a text message away.
Finally the area has all the greatest restaurants, cafés, and shops on Valencia.

I am a property manager/environmental scientist/entrepreneur/artist/builder from the mountains of Montana who relocated to the Bay Area to attend college...and I got hooked! Since that time I have come to call the Bay Area home and love it especially because it has such a fabulous diversity of residents and activities. I enjoy helping visitors with discerning tastes take delight in our spaces and I especially like helping travelers discover the insider’s perspective on the many world-class destinations/arts/restaurants/events the Bay Area (and beyond!) offers.
