Clean, cute, private, exceptionally well appointed studio garden apartment in my Noe Valley home.
You will have a completely private entrance through my garage into the apartment. The apartment looks out onto a lovely garden which you can access through french doors. If you are a smoker, you are welcome to smoke on the private garden patio (but please, do not smoke in the apartment). The unit has a very comfortable queen-sized bed, ample closet space, a fully stocked kitchen with small dining table/chairs, and a sitting room with a small couch where you can watch basic cable TV. There is a large bathroom with 2 sinks, a shower with excellent water pressure, and a bathtub. Wi-Fi is included, as is access to the washer/dryer in the shared garage.
This is a lovely, studio apartment on a quiet Noe Valley block with good street parking and easy public transportation. You will love it.
The apartment is private, although it is connected to my Noe Valley home where I live upstairs. Guests have access to the garden, and may use the washer/dryer in the shared garage.
Interaction with Guests
I am an attentive, but laid-back host, who will gauge our level of interaction to your taste and needs. If you are independent, I'll greet you upon arrival, give you a set of keys, and send you on your way! If you prefer a bit more interaction or recommendations on local transportation or nearby restaurants, Bay Area day trips, etc., I am here for you.
Noe Valley is one of the most sought after residential neighborhoods in San Francisco. Centrally-located, safe and family-friendly, it is known for its' good weather, beautiful housing stock, and a commercial strip packed with fun shops, restaurants, grocery store, etc.
There is ample free street parking on my block, and the unit is convenient to public transportation. It is a 15-minute drive from the SFO airport by taxi or shuttle-bus.
No smoking indoors (you may smoke on the patio).
I booked Ellen's apartment for my parents who stayed there for 3 weeks while visiting me in San Francisco.
Ellen and her daughter Emma were nice, welcoming and easy to communicate with; the apartment was clean, comfortable and had everything one might need for a convenient stay.
The only down side was the air conditioning which is controlled from Ellen's apartment (above this apartment) so guests have to ask Ellen's family to turn the ac on and off, which is somewhat inconvenient. Other than that everything was perfect.
My parents would gladly return to Ellen's apartment next time they're in town, and would definitely recommend it to others.
Thanks for a great stay Ellen and Emma!
Had a fantastic trip, Ellen's daughter did a great job in getting me settled in and connected to the internet.
Location was perfect, and the studio apartment is lovely.
Thanks also for the flexibility of a late check-out.
Ellen's studio was a dream. It looks exactly like the pictures. We didn't have very much interaction with Ellen other than our introductions and her showing us the place but she was lovely and very welcoming.
The space itself was perfect. It had everything we needed and was very comfortable. The location was great too. Noe Valley is the perfect spot for those that are looking to still be close enough to all the happenings (ie. The Mission, Castro, etc.) but still tucked far enough away if your looking for a quiet, comforting evening.
We would most definitely recommend her space to anyone in the future and would stay again ourselves. :)
Ellen’s place was the perfect place to stay in San Francisco. We loved it. The location is close to public transportation and there are great shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. The space itself was very clean and stylish, and exactly as described. We loved seeing the sunlight in the backyard each morning. Ellen was friendly and eager to provide advice regarding our stay in the City. Parking on the street was no problem. We highly recommend this space to anyone looking for a comfortable and convenient place to stay in San Francisco!
How can I say? So lovely that is felling when I move in Ellen's apartment at my first sight. Cleaning and full functional inside this apartment indeed. Ellen the host is a very warm-hearted lady give us so many helps during this trip. Next time wish I can have more time to stay in here!
It was a pleasure to stay at Ellen`s apartment. Noe Valley is a lovely neighborhood with lots of cafés, shops and restaurants (and a big Wholefoods supermarket for everything you might need), very charming and relaxed, and the buzzing Mission district is within walking distance. Travel to Downtown takes some time with Muni, but it's absolutely worth staying in this non-touristic area of town. The apartment itself is maybe a bit shabbier than it looks like on the pictures, but everything worked fine and we enjoyed coming back "home" after a long day in the City. Ellen is a very welcoming and easy-going host. Thanks for sharing your home, Ellen!
The description and photographs are fully in line with the house, all very clean and tidy house with plenty of natural light and a magnificent private garden. Ellen made us feel at home with their hospitality and helped us with all the paperwork we had to do during our stay in San Francisco
La descripción y fotografías coinciden totalmente con las de la casa, todo muy limpio y ordenado, la casa con mucha luz natural y un jardín privado magnifico. Ellen nos hizo sentir como en casa con su hospitalidad y nos ayudo con todos los tramites que tuvimos que hacer durante nuestra estancia en San Francisco
Native San Franciscan and mother of 2 recent college grads. I work in public health & host on Air BnB! I love to travel; take care of my home and garden; and explore the amazing places, spaces, food and events here in SF & the Bay Area. I'm an attentive but laid-back host. Having grown up in SF, I am probably as knowledgeable a host as you will find about all things 'San Francisco'.
