About the Owner

We love living in Noe Valley! We have two young kids and have enjoyed having a separate legal unit on our property for the grandparents to use when they visit. In fact, we enjoy it so much we want to make the convenience available to others in the neighborhood, which is how we decided to make our in-law unit available as a vacation rental! :)

"We loved our stay here. Such a cozy nest to come home to after the always fun-

filled days in the city! We took the full moon walk in the Botanical Gardens and

enjoyed the SFMOMA exhibits. Thanks for helping our son and daughter with

the flowers, chocolate and wine gathered for our arrival - such a sweet

We knew we were in for a treat when we received warm and inviting email responses from Lara when we booked our stay at "Noe Place Like Home." She was thoroughly informative regarding check-in procedures, and shared helpful written "lay of the land" tips via neighborhood-parking, shopping, public transportation, etc.

The apartment is beyond wonderful. It is immaculate and the attention to detail (stunning wood cabinetry/lovely window coverings/comfortable furniture) is impressive. The kitchen is beautifully-stocked and thoroughly modern. I meant to check the brand of mattress on the bed because I slept like a log! The sheets and duvet were comfortable and cozy.

We walked to a wonderful restaurant @ couple blocks away for breakfast (Toast Eatery on 24th -- yum!), and loved feeling like "locals" in the vibrant, charming community. Whole Foods is close, as well as a variety of shopping and business interests(clothing/candy store/restaurants/wine store/coffeehouses/real estate/dental, etc.).

We want "Noe Place Like Home" to be our go-to San Francisco home whenever we visit our son. Next time, we shall dine al fresco on your charming patio. Thanks again, Lara and Alex, for graciously offering your much-loved apartment.

The apartment was lovely. I had a car and parked on the street with little hassle. The location is perfect - just a block from cute shops, Whole foods, and great food. The apartment was quiet, cozy and modern, the kitchen was well-equipped and the sitting area opened onto a little patio. I was there to visit my daughter and do the the SF half marathon and this was the perfect location and ambiance. Alex and Lara even gave me a little congrats note after I finished! I plan on staying here again on my next SF trip!

A true home away from home.

I have stayed here twice when visiting family in Noe Valley and love this apartment. It is exactly as shown in the photos on line and has easy access to transport and the great 24th Street shopping strip. There are good restaurants and cafes in the area, a post office, banks, Wholefoods and Walgreens, a farmers market and more.. I attended yoga and pilates classes just a block away and made use of the local library. The apartment itself is warm, light and well equipped. There is plenty of storage space and lots of helpful tourist information. Alex and Lara are on hand to answer questions and give advice if required, but never intrude on your privacy. I look forward to my next visit and would recommend this apartment without hesitation.

This apartment was excellent - clean, comfortable, tastefully decorated and fully equipped. 1.5 blocks from 24th street and restaurants, bookshop, florist, nail salon, frozen yogurt, etc. We'll definitely try to book this place on our next SF trip.

This apartment was in the perfect location in the popular Noe Valley Area. The place was warm and comfortable and the kitchen was better equipped than my now home. Even though I did not cook, I could see that a family would be very happy to stay here for several weeks as there was ample closet space, a charming small backyard and all sorts of information for visitors. Lara was so friendly and helpful, and I think that when I come back again, I will stay here for sure.

Fantastic Noe Valley Apartment

  • 5 of 5
This was the second time we stayed at 'Noe Place Like Home'. It is not only convenient to my family in Noe Valley, but it is a beautiful place, complete with back garden and a lovely Meyer lemon tree. It is set up perfectly for a couple (though has a high-end sofa bed if there are more than two people). The kitchen has everything you could possibly need, and the apt. is modern and very, very clean. Lara is friendly and helpful. I recommend this property without reservation.

From the Owner

Our guest unit is actually quieter than the main unit where we reside, because the guest unit faces almost entirely on our enclosed, private, peaceful garden.
