We stayed here as a family of 4 with two young kids. Overall, it was great! Our kids stayed in one of the bedrooms: one in one of the twin beds, the other in the provided travel crib. The travel crib was a bit old, but still in good shape and definitely got the job done. Much better than lugging our own through the airport, etc. The kids slept great. My wife and I stayed in the master bedroom, which was good. The bed was a bit on the firm side for us, but we prefer incredibly soft beds, so I imagine it's perfectly fine for most people. There was enough space to spread out and move around. The entire place is in great condition. It's fairly new, and we appreciated all the different lighting options and dimmers around the whole unit. The washer/dryer was incredibly helpful. Cable (not HD) and Internet were good. All the essentials were there (kitchen stuff, shower stuff, etc). It's also quite private. You're tucked away in back of a house, so it's very quiet. There's great natural lighting, too (huge glass sliding doors and skylights). Another perk is being literally on the J-Church line. The muni stop is seriously about 20 steps away from the front of the house. We had a car, and honestly, parking was just OK. It wasn't trivial, but it wasn't impossible, either. Maybe we just didn't know the best places to look. We were also a bit more reluctant to park more than a block or so away because we always had 2 kids in tow. But you have to constantly be on the lookout for street cleaning signs, construction, driveways, etc. Anyway, it all worked out, so I guess it's not a real concern. Overall, we really loved this place. Oh, and last but not least, Ed was a really great guy. Very responsive and helpful when you message him, too. 100% recommend his place.

Very comfortable cottage in a quiet neighborhood that is very centrally located and has everything you need within a few blocks. Access to public transportation couldn't be easier. Great place to stay with a family.

We loved our weeklong stay at Ed’s cottage in Noe Valley. Wonderful residential setting with great restaurants and cafes and excellent access to both street car and MUNI bus. Really nice furnishings and amenities, great light, super quiet, perfect size for our family of 4, including 2 teenagers. Really spacious. We looked forward to returning home each evening. Ed was great, so easy to work with. Already looking forward to our next stay at the cottage.

Ed's place is in a perfect central location. Public transport is right outside the door and shops and restaurants are walking distance. That being said, the cottage is tucked away behind a residential home making it beautifully peaceful and serene. We did have rental car and were able to find parking without much fuss. The cottage is well appointed and exceptionally clean. The place is lovely--everything we needed!

Everything about this residence is great! - Residential neighborhood: quiet, blocks from a supermarket, Muni right out the door, excellent coffee shop two minutes' walk (Martha & Bros), safe, well lit - Space is ideal: comfortable furniture/mattresses, good layout, every appliance/kitchen item you could possibly need, clean, quality provisions - Great host: Ed is communicative and responsive, kind and helpful I'd stay in the cottage again in a heartbeat my next time in SF!
