A Quiet Yet Vibrant Community

Set in the heart of the city, Eureka Valley places you in the middle of several vibrant villages - Castro, Duboce, Dolores Heights, the Valencia Corridor, and more! The neighborhood is a solid representation of an authentic San Francisco experience with public transit and endless amenities and attractions at your fingertips. 

This community is often referred to as one of California's best places to live due to the extraordinary balance of peaceful residential living and the endless selection of bars, restaurants, markets, and shops. Many choose this area for its dense urban feel, quiet residential vibe, and vibrant nightlife in the Castro District. Locals enjoy walking the hilly terrain to soak up spectacular San Francisco views from various vantage points throughout the neighborhood. Public schools are above average here, and the proximity to the interior greenbelt offers a plethora of outdoor activities.  

Eureka Valley is situated between prominent neighborhoods such as the Mission District, Ashbury Heights, and Buena Vista, providing easy access to nearby Randall Museum, Tank Hill, Mount Sutro, Twin Peaks, and Mission Dolores Park. Access to the Muni streetcar lines and other city buses headed in almost every direction will make your commute a breeze. Tech shuttles also have stops all around the neighborhood.
