The flat is a modern, stylish, clean and quiet 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom Edwardian with a large living room, a working gas fireplace, dining room and a full kitchen with granite counter tops.
Each bedroom can accommodate up to 2 adults. There is a very comfortable queen size bed in each room and it's fairly sunny during the day (unless we're fogged in) and pretty dark and quiet in the evenings (perfect for sleeping). There is one bathroom.
Guests have access to everything in the flat except the computer. However, if you are in need of internet access, I can give you use of an Ipad. I also reserve heavy laundry use for guests staying for 5+ days.
Interaction with Guests
My sister owns the flat upstairs which is where one of us will be, so someone is always around if you ever need anything. However, we will respect your privacy and you may hear us upstairs from time to time, but you will only see us if you want to :).
Experience the real San Francisco and stay where the locals live. Whether you're visiting for business or pleasure, this is the perfect location. This is a quiet, safe neighborhood which makes it great for families and couples traveling together. Parking can be tricky in San Francisco which makes my area a bit more desirable if you have a car. It is further away from the main tourist attractions, but still accessible.
You're just a 15 minute walk to Baker Beach, a 15 minute walk to Presidio, a 20 minute walk to Golden Gate Park and 12 blocks from Lincoln Park Golf Course. The Legion of Honor, The DeYoung Museum and Land's End (Coastal Trail that runs about six miles along the bluff above the sea boasting spectacular views) are also a 20 minute walk.
Your charming neighborhood coffee shop is just a few doors down and there are lots of great restaurants just within a few blocks including the best wood fired pizza place in the city (in my opinion) and the best vietnamese crab restaurant (also in my opinion).
Muni is nearby and can get you anywhere in the city. The #1 California is 1/2 block away and the #38 Geary is 2 blocks away. Both lines can get you anywhere in the city.
Other Things to Note
Garage parking can be included for an additional fee but only with prior approval. There are time when the garage cannot be offered.
We live in a quiet building and neighborhood. If you would like to invite additional friends or family into my home while you are visiting, I would appreciate you letting me know in advance.
Just treat my place as you would your own and be respectful of my home.
This listing was just as advertised - a comfortable, nicely furnished two- bedroom flat in the Richmond district. We never met Noreen, who was out of town, but her sister was very gracious, and lives upstairs.
Noreen stayed in touch until I was checked in. She has made the effort to have a notebook with essential apartment info and an introduction to the neighborhood.
The apartment is as advertised and is even nicer than the photo.
Very clean, Very comfortable.
L appartement etait tres agreable. Un dossier complet des comodites au alentours etait a disposition. La soeur de Noreen nous a accueilli chaleureusement nous proposant son aide pour toute question. Noreen semble etre un fin gpurmet et les commentaires sur les restaurants sont tres pratiques. L ocean, le presidio, baker beach, golden gate park et golden gate bridge sont a proximites et avec une voiture nous n avons eu aucun pb pour nous garer et avons pu silloner l ensmble de la bay avec facilite.
Un grand merci a Noreen et sa soeur
Nous reciendrons tres volontiers
This apartment was a perfect choice for my first visit to San Francisco.
I enjoyed every minute of my 1-week stay here!
Noreen is an excellent host. She is always ready to provide the best answers to any of the questions.
Location is perfect for exploring San Francisco.
Quiet and cozy neighborhood.
Even at the late evening there is an opportunity to find the parking space (and free of charge) on one of the streets nearby.
Just 30 minutes ride by bus to Downtown.
2 bedrooms with ‘real’ beds, not air mattresses.
A lot of space with excellent kitchen, a special room for dining and nice lounge room. And everything looks very beautiful there!
My stay at Noreen’s apartment was well above any of my optimistic expectations.
Noreen is very organized and responds efficiently and quickly. . She is a very nice person who is very professional. This was our first time to book through Airbnb. This was a great experience due mostly to Noreen. Her flat had terrific wifi. This was very important. It was comfortable and clean. Her flat is in a terrific neighborhood. We can not thank her enough for allowing us to stay there. There were plenty of towels too. Her suggestions for neighborhood places to eat breakfast was appreciated and taken.
Airbnb in San Francisco now must collect a hotel tax of sorts, which I did not realize. This additional tax came on the charge. I believe this is new for 2015. I will be mindful of this in the future when comparing lodging options.
Noreen, was a brilliant host met us on arrival, and Was very helpfull. A beautiful apartment, just as the pictures showed with everything we needed. Perfect quite location with great bus service to downtown. many thanks for making our stay so enjoyable . Mary Kay and Helen .
Very nice home! Noreen was accommodating during the check-in time and was great with showing me around the beautiful apartment. Thank you!

Like most San Franciscans, eating good food and trying all types of restaurants is one of my favorite past times. I enjoy cooking, entertaining and listening to live music. I have as much fun doing indoor activities (IE: reading, watching movies, dancing), as I do outdoor activities (IE: hiking, kayaking, scuba diving). I live for a weekend getaway whether it’s planned or spontaneous. I consider wine tasting through any wine region a good way to spend the day, and I am in constant search of the perfect beach. So far, my vote is Anguilla. I work in the Travel Industry, so my short list gets longer and longer. I would love to get to Africa very soon!
