Interaction with Guests
We provide a confirmation as soon as the booking is completed and again about a week prior to arrival. We send a complete description of the unit, access, transportation, local restaurants, etc. Once someone has checked in, we often text ~ 1/day to check in on them. Occasionally we'll see them in the back while grilling.
Noe Valley is central to so many things. It is a real San Francisco neighborhood with cafes, shops, restaurants, recreation and the all important access to transportation.
Muni 24, Muni 36, Muni 14 and 14L, Muni J all about block or so away.
One full bedroom including the bathroom. May not work for 3 persons who don't fully want to share a bathroom that would include those staying on the SOFA BED (not a pull out but full fold down style). In order to get to the only solo bathroom, you have to go into the bedroom.
We were very happy to stay at your place again and felt right at home when we arrived! Thank you for being a great host, we had a great stay. Our dog loved the backyard, thank you for being pet friendly! We would happily stay again and highly recommend your place!
We couldn't have picked a better place to start our San Francisco journey than at this beautiful cottage. The cottage was incredibly comfortable, with all modern appliances and amenities, a bed that makes you feel like you're sleeping on a cloud and the most peaceful backyard you can imagine. The location is excellent! Quick access to tech shuttles, public transit and many yummy cafes and restaurants close by-- we didn't really need a car. Above all, Michael and Brad made us instantly feel at home. They are great to interact with and have so much knowledge about the community. I always enjoyed running into them and having a friendly chat. To date it has been my favorite AirBNB experience and an amazing introduction to San Francisco living. I will be referring them to all my friends who come visit the area. If you have an opportunity to stay with them, don't miss out!
We had a wonderful stay, Michael was a great host and ensured that we had everything we needed! The cottage was perfect and very well appointed. It was conveniently located and was close to several awesome restaurants. We loved that the place is dog friendly and our doggie loved the huge backyard. We would highly recommend staying here!!
Great place! We live in the neighborhood, but had to relocate for a few days. Michael and Brad's place is the perfect spot. Michael has been super welcoming, meeting us and showing us around (pointing out the great hot tub in the wonderful backyard!). Will definitely keep this in mind for friends and family coming to SF to visit.
Our experience was amazing. Our hosts were extremely professional (replied to my enquiries within an hour), friendly, and very accommodating. They were able to arrange an early check-in after we arrived after a long flight from Australia. We were travelling with our baby daughter and they organised a diaper bin, travel cot, high chair and pram for us to use. There was a welcome message waiting when we arrived and shortly after they stopped in to introduce themselves and let us know they were there to help if we needed anything.
The check-in process was easy and seamless thanks to the helpful info pack they emailed prior to arrival. It also contained great info about how to use all the appliances, local amenities, helpful transport and local contact details etc.
The apartment itself is beautiful - tasteful, comfortable, cosy and very well-appointed. Spotlessly clean and looks exactly as in the photos. The bed is super comfortable and the place is kitted out with good quality linen and towels. Great shower and bathroom stocked with lots of useful toiletries. The garden is gorgeous and tranquil and there's even a hot tub and BBQ. From a welcome bottle of wine, to great pantry items to a first aid kid, thoughtful touches abound. It really feels like a home away from home.
Location is fantastic - 1min walk to lots of great restaurants, cafes, a grocery store, tram and bus stops direct to downtown. 24th street which has dozens of cafés,shops, restaurants, and a whole foods is only a ten minute walk and there's also more places along the way. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, recommend it to anyone coming to San Francisco and will definitely be back.
Michael was super thoughtful when organizing the place for guests. Everything was laid out, with detailed instructions for getting into the cottage, turning on the television, working the hot tub, etc.
The Garden Cottage was fantastic. It was everything we could have asked for and more. Loved relaxing on the outdoor patio, and slipping into the hot tub after a long day of walking through the city. Just a perfect space to stay.
This was our first time in the Noe Valley area, and we really enjoyed it. There's plenty of amazing restaurants and shops within walking distance. Hopping on the MUNI to head into the city was a breeze.
Brad and Michael were super friendly and accommodating, and the Garden Cottage was a wonderful place to stay for our time in SF. Thoroughly recommend it. We will be back for sure.
Michael and Brad's place is beautiful! We loved the fact that they had thought of everything and did it will style. The indoor space is super clean, well decorated, and has everything you could possibly need and then some, even down to to-go cups for your coffee if you're on the go. The best part of their property is the outdoor space: it's so lovely...fire pit, hot tub, space heaters, and grill. We cooked steaks one night, hot tubbed under the stars, and warmed our toes around the fire pit.
My wife and I slept in the bedroom - very comfy bed, and our friend took the futon fold out couch, which he said was also comfy. It was in a cute neighborhood and walking distance to some yummy brunch spots. We highly recommend this place, and would stay again.
5 things to know about my travel habits:
1) I enjoy being centrally located.
2) I love using local transportation whenever possible.
3) I have to unpack and "nest" before I can sleep or enjoy the sights.
4) I think technology is amazing and love how it has created a virtual marketplace for EVERYTHING.
5) Sometimes I over estimate when I create lists...couldn't think of a 5th. (or read that as "GOOD SENSE OF HUMOR")
