Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This place is great! It's a quiet, clean, comfortable space that was very inviting and the perfect size for my family (there are four of us, including a young child). It's kid-friendly and was conveniently located near restaurants, ice cream, a supermarket, a rec center, public transportation and the Church from 'Sister Act'! We enjoyed our stay very much and were even able to host a few friends over for dinner during our week's stay because there was plenty of room in the dining and living area. We never felt crowded during our stay. The courtyard provides extra space, too, that's warm & sunny (at least in the summer) for dining, reading or relaxing. We'd love to stay there again for our next visit to San Francisco.

  • This place is awesome! You're staying in a nice neighbourhood in San Fransisco, excellent connection to downtown (muni across the door) and very quiet and luxurious cottage. The courtyard is really nice and quiet and our kids loved it. The owner is very friendly and willing to help. He gave a lot of tips, printed some maps,...
    The cottage is really clean, very well equipped and very bright. We'd definitely stay here again.

  • Can't say enough about our stay at Ed's place in Noe Valley. Ed was uber accommodating, from setting up arrangements to checking in and out. Not to mention friendly and helpful. His place is also great. It's modern, comfortable and was perfect for our family of four. And finally, Noe Valley is a great locale. Loved the neighborhood spots -- Toast right across the street is a good way to start the day -- and as he says online, the muni stops right outside his place. Hard to beat. Would absolutely recommend.

  • We enjoyed our stay at Ed's. The apartment is well situated right outside the tram stop which takes you downtown in no time at all, yet once inside the house it is perfectly quiet. There are good local options for dining and a supermarket nearby. It's very well equipped, spacious and nicely decorated. We were really pleased with our choice of accommodation for our stay in San Francisco.

  • This was an awesome apartment! The apartment has been fully renovated and they did an awesome job. Ed, our host, was extremely welcoming and very informative about Noe valley and recommended interesting places to visit in San Francisco, he greeted us when we first arrived and he met up with us again as we left. The picture matched the apartment exactly. Self-check in was very easy since Ed sent me an email of instructions on how to obtain a key to enter into the apartment. There's also an organized a binder of all restaurants nearby, instructions for appliances, local map, etc. We were a family of 4 adults, my parents, my sister, and myself and our stay was very comfortable. The apartment was super clean, very private, and quiet. It was a perfect place to relax and unwind after exploring the city all day. My mom has a very strict health dietary restrictions, which required her to cook most of her meals at home. So, we spent a lot of time during our stay in the kitchen cooking breakfast and dinner. The kitchen was fully stocked! We only had to buy what we needed and all kitchen accessories that we needed were already there. There was a little patio area in the front of the apartment that was a great seating area, however, we did not take full advantage of it because it was bit chilly out when we were there. But, I can see it being a nice place to have breakfast in the morning when it's warm. I would definitely stay here again the next time in San Francisco.

  • My family had a great stay at Ed's private cottage. Location is perfect, right by the MUNI and close to shops/restaurants, in a very quiet and great neighborhood of San Francisco. The apartment is very comfortable, very clean, spacious, quiet, and fully equipped (kitchen); plus a really nice backyard. Ed has been really easy to communicate with, he welcomed them when they arrived, and regularly asked if we needed anything! I would recommend his place for anyone staying in San Francisco!

  • We spent a very nice time at Ed's cottage. Ed is a lovely person, very kind in welcoming us at San Francisco and helpful in his advices. The cottage was as described in the notice, very pleasant and quiet, everything was in good order.
    If we will come back to San Francisco, we will book again with Ed.

  • I booked Ed and Sunny's cottage for my folks during their most recent visit to San Francisco as they like staying in our neighborhood. They absolutely loved this place! A solid 5 star experience, both for the accommodation and the hosts!

  • Staying at Ed and Sunny’s place was an excellent experience from the moment we first contacted them. Ed was incredibly accommodating, even when we changed our arrival date, and he was very helpful along the way. Ed welcomed us as soon as we arrived, and he was waiting for us with maps and instructions and tips on how to get around and where to eat in the neighborhood (which is great, by the way). The apartment is comfortable, spacious, very clean and fully equipped – not to mention super cute! We had a wonderful time at Ed and Sunny’s cottage, and we are already dying to go back. We would definitely recommend it!

  • We stayed with our two children in Ed and Sunny's cottage for a couple days only and I'm convinced we were able to have the best stay we could thanks to the friendliness of our host. The cottage is really comfortable, highly qualitative, situated in a great location. On top of this, we have been warmly welcomed and greatly advised on the activities worth the detour :-) We would love to come back and definitely stay longer!
