Nice, clean self contained garden apartment. Convenient location close to lots of cool restaurants and shops. Streamlined welcome experience. We had all we needed and more. Thanks!
The cottage is wonderful, lots of space and stocked with all the amenities that we needed (and more). Check in was easy and we were completely independent. We ran into Ed a few times and he gave us a tip on a good spot to get coffee in the morning - then we ran into him again on his way back from the coffee shop. We really enjoyed our vacation and the peacefulness of the cottage. It is also located within walking distance of Safeway, a great produce stand, Mitchell's ice cream, and many restaurants. The J-Church muni stops right outside the front. Very nice, very convenient spot! We will look up the cottage the next time we are out visiting San Francisco! Thanks Ed!
We came to town for my brother's wedding and had a wonderful time spending 11 nights at the cottage. Ed and Sunny were so accomodating in every way possible. There was a clean, crisp feeling at the cottage.....the rooms fill up with sunlight and the sheets are so smooth! My husband is a carpenter and appreciated their attention to detail in restoring this previous old barn. The kitchen was especially fantastic and came with everything we needed. The neighborhood is quiet and grocery stores are close by....we didn't need a car at all. With the J train stop right in front of the cottage we were easily connected to the city. Ed also recommended the park across the street for our daughter which she enjoyed very much. As someone else said in a review I read..."a five star" rental....and it's so true! Thanks again Ed and Sunny.
I booked this home for my Mom and her 2 older friends, and they loved it! "It was very clean, equipped, and comfy. Ed was very friendly and helpful. We liked the neighborhood, and the metro was right out front so we were able to connect to everywhere in the city we wanted to go. We would recommend chez Ed to anyone looking for a nice well-priced place to crash, vs staying in a hotel!"
A safe and cozy base for a longer stay. New, tasteful and completely quiet and private with a wonderful host taking care of us and helping out with local and regional sights, foods and transportation. Ed, we will be back!
No hesitation to recommend Ed and his cottage! Everything was as described in the profile and everything was nice and new. We also appreciated the little details, the well-stocked coffee and laundry cubby, and the basketball he lent my sons to play in the nearby Upper Noe Recreational Centre.
Sunny & I (Ed) are married with two active boys. We work in San Francisco. Our boys go to a neighborhood school. I am construction contractor in the city and Sunny is a CPA / finance consultant. When we are not shuttling our boys to swim meets, wrestling practice and music lessons, we enjoy entertaining with our friends and families, skiing, and enjoying the outdoors.
