Interaction with Guests
When they arrive and only if needed during their stay. We live upstairs, so if there is anything that the guests need, we are usually available.
We love Noe Valley. It is a wonderful friendly upscale neighborhood. There is a teriffic mix of people who live here, many of whom commute to Silicon Valley via (website hidden) busses that stop a few blocks away from our home. There are lots of charming stores and restaurants within walking distance and our location makes it easily accessible to all parts of San Francisco by public transportation. Noe Valley also has more dogs (pets) than any other part of San Francisco.
Public transportation is easily accessible - the street car to downtown is 1 1/2 streets away and there is a bus that is also 1 1/2 streets away that would take you to Golden Gate Park.

I stayed at Arlene and Leon's place for three months during my stay in San Francisco. This is really an excellent place. The place is spacious enough, good lighting and clean. The bed is comfortable. The apartment has all essential amenities and facilities such as well equipped kitchen, washing machine, television, wifi and so on. There is a backyard where is an relax place for taking a break with a coffee and enjoying the leisure. The photo showed is exactly the same as I lived.
Arlene and Leon's place is at Noe Valley where is a wonderful place. It is quiet but convenient. There are lots of good places to have coffee, lunch and even dinner. There are different cafe or restaurants nearby providing variety of cuisine such as American style, Chinese, Mexican and so on. There are few groceries and a big supermarket nearby as well.
It is also very easy to go to downtown by taking the (Street car) light-rail J-line at the Church and Clipper street where is only few minutes walk from Arlene and Leon's place to the stop. Moreover, there is an overnight bus (bus 24) at Noe Street and 26th Street. It is only two short blocks away from Arlene and Leon's place and takes less than 5 minutes walk to the bus stop.
Last but not the least, Arlene and Leon are nice host, They are friendly and helpful. They provide excellent hospitality.

Arlene and Leon are wonderful hosts who made us feel very welcome in their cottage. We loved the big appartment, the cosy garden and silence. It's placed 2 mins walk from the streetcar stop that connects directly to Union Square, few blocks away from restaurants and cafes. Thank you very much

We were warmly welcomed after our flight from NYC and spent a most pleasant week in Arlene & Leon's studio apartment. This is in a great friendly neighbourhood with plenty of good food available and easy to get around San Francisco with BART, buses etc. The garden area is a bonus and most evenings we had drinks there as the weather was superb during our stay. Highly recommend this accommodation.
