About this listing
Please come and enjoy our master bedroom suite with a private 1/2 bath, in an 1880's Victorian in sunny Noe Valley. Centrally located to Noe's shops and easy walking distance to Valencia corridor, Dolores Park and the Mission, along with public transportation a block away.
The guest suite is two rooms with a bay window in the bedroom (queen size bed) and a decorative fireplace in the sitting room; these are joined in the middle by a vanity with a sink and an enclosed toilet across from a large closet. The main bath is located off the kitchen and is equipped with an Ofuro tub and shower.
The neighborhood has a small town feel, while being a half hour to downtown (on public transportation) or an hour to Napa or Silicon Valleys (by car; traffic permitting). Yet, it is only a short walk to all the smaller dynamic locations for dining, arts and cultural events.
For stays of 7 days and longer access to washer and dryer is provided or there is a wash and fold one block away.
We ask that our guests that smoke do so outside.
The deck is a beautiful space to spend time, smoking or not.
In consideration of our friends and next door neighbors, please do not have cell phone conversations on the deck.
The kitchen is opened for use; we asked that you clean it after your meal or snack.
For those guests, whose stays are longer than a week, access to the laundry is provided Mon. through Sat. with the last load in at 9 pm.
No additional guests besides those listed on the reservation,who have e-mailed a copy of a photo Id. are permitted. There is a 2 guest maximum.
Lastly, a quiet house between the hours of 11 pm. and 7am. is the norm.
Please, no partying.
Our stay with Lauren & Sarah was great! Our room and the rest of the apartment was amazing! Also the neighbourhood was exactly what we expected of San Francisco! On the one side there was a nice family friendly neighbourhood with great restaurants and super markets and on the other side cool and hip restaurants, cafés and night clubs. I would highly recommend staying there to get an authentic experience of San Francisco!
If AirBNB was envisioned as a revolutionary new experience of the sharing economy, than staying at Sarah&Lauren is the perfect representation of this vision. Sounds a bit too much? Trust me, it isn't. The openness, kindness and energy of the people in San Francisco is completely reflected in (the house of) Sarah and Lauren. I fell in love with the city on my first day and that was largely due to these fantastic women. So this will be an AirBNB+ experience, I can ensure you.
On the basics: beautiful home, great and safe neighborhood, very pleasant room, great facilities, very nice shower/tub, great insider tips, hotel quality sheets/towels, private sink & toilet, patio (!), wifi, cabinet space in the kitchen, great variety of coffee makers, everything you could wish for basically.
Must do: rent a bike (or perhaps you can borrow L&S's) and cruise around town (make sure to find the roads with bike paths, like Valencia and Market, and google 'The Wiggle').
This is as good as it gets, wonderful hosts, comfortable bed, beautiful home that they totally shared with us, great location.
We felt like we had our own apt in the city, Sarah and Lauren went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. We hope we get to return, cannot even imagine staying anywhere else in San Francisco!
Notre séjour chez Lauren & Sarah était parfait, elles sont toujours disponibles, accueillantes, généreuses, sympas, rigolotes, on se sent chez elles comme chez nous. La chambre est très propre, atypique avec une belle décoration idéal pour un séjour à San Francisco. Le quartier est calme, proche de tout et très bien desservi par les transport. On y retournera sans hésiter !
Merci beaucoup !
A perfect stay from A to Z. Lauren and Sarah were the best hosts we've ever had during our trips with Air Bnb. We shared beers and chocolate, and really felt home in their lovely and extremely clean studio. They also gave us plenty of precious advice, which we followed to discover things only locals know. Conclusion: never hesitate to stay at Lauren and Sarah's!
This was a wonderful place to stay in San Francisco! The room was exactly like the photos, very beautifully furnished and you have everything you need. The location is fantastic, around the corner there is transport to take you into the city, and there are lots of interesting little shops and eateries in the area (such as Mission Cheese on Valencia for cheese & wine, Bi-Rite Creamery on 18th Street for the Salted Caramel & Balsamic Strawberry icecream!). Overall 10/10! Thanks Lauren & Sarah for having us and all your efforts in making it such an enjoyable stay, SF is our favourite bit of our trip :) I would definitely recommend your place to family and friends and will stay again with you both if we visit again!
We absolutely loved our stay with Lauren and Sarah. They made our holiday even better than we could have hoped! We felt like we were staying with our good old friends- they made us feel so welcome and were lots of fun and fantastic company. They couldn't have been more accommodating making their home our home.
And the house...Its a real gem. Its very beautifully decorated with lots of character. If you are a design fan you'll really appreciate the love and attention the ladies have given this place. It feels like you are staying in a little boutique hotel with bathrobes in the bedroom and lots of thoughtful touches such as a complementary bottle of wine! The bedroom is a great space with a lovely little living room and the 1/2 bathroom is great for a little privacy. But oh my- the Japanese wooden bath in the shared bathroom! What a treat it was to have a bubble bath in there!
And the house is also in a great neighbourhood that's quiet but really close to lots of nice restaurants and bars.
We really can't recommend Sarah and Lauren's place enough. Its fantastic value in an expensive city. We'll be back.
