About this listing
We have a charming, 2 bedroom 1 bath Victorian home high on a hill with sweeping views, a garden and a deck. There’s free on street parking and a bus stop is a 2 minute walk away at the corner. Downtown is about 30 minutes by public transportation.
You have your own bedroom with a comfortable double bed and you share the single bathroom with us. You’re invited to sit out on the deck and soak up the view whenever the weather permits. You're also welcome to light use of the kitchen.
The first morning of your stay we provide a simple make-your-own breakfast such as fruit and granola. After the first day, feel free to store your own breakfast food in our refrigerator. Safeway and Whole Foods Markets are both nearby popular places to purchase groceries. Most of our guests opt for one of several incredible breakfast options nearby. We always have coffee and tea available for you.
My husband and I are welcoming, friendly hosts, happy to help you find your way around you. I am a yoga teacher and body movement therapist, and my husband is a mortgage broker. Although we both have active lives, we enjoy meeting and interacting with our guests. At the same time we know that you have your own plans and priorities, and we want to respect your alone time and privacy.
We live in a great part of San Francisco. The air is fresh, the people are friendly and we're close to great dining and neighborhood shopping. 24th Street in "downtown" Noe Valley is one of the most delightful neighborhoods in San Francisco. It's like being in a small town in the midst of a big city. We are in a great location for walking, driving, and taking public transportation.
We're a 10 min. walk downhill to 24th St., the trendy, shopping and dining street of Noe Valley; a 5 minute walk uphill to Safeway supermarket, Walgreens pharmacy, post office, and a few eateries
Some of our more ambitious guests walk to nearby neighborhoods including the Castro, the Mission, and Glen Park. We are on a steep hill, so be prepared, especially on the way back! Remember, you can always hop on the bus!
Our house is close to several bus lines: the 35, 24, and 52 lines are all a short walk from our house. The 35 is particularly close, a leisurely one minute and ten second walk from our house to the bus stop. (Yes, we timed it!)
The 35 will take you to "downtown" Noe Valley and the Castro within minutes. At the Castro St. Station you can connect to many other lines that will easily take you downtown and beyond.
The 24 and 52 are both within 5 minutes of our house and will take you to many other neighborhoods as well as to other lines that will connect you to the entire city and to BART. We're happy to assist you with bus schedules and answer your questions as best we can. All of this information can be found online, too.
One other popular option is to take the J-Church streetcar to downtown. It's a 10 minute walk downhill from our house to the 27th St. stop. This tram goes mainly above ground and offers interesting and lovely views of different neighborhoods and Dolores Park along the way.
Driving: We're in a terrific location for those of you who are driving.
Parking on street near our house is easy and free (unlike many parts of San Francisco). Our house is on a steep street, but most guests park in front of our house or within a few houses of ours. Occasionally a guest will park down the hill or on the nearest cross street as it is flatter, after first dropping their bags off.
We are convenient to other San Francisco neighborhoods as well as to highways that will get you to anywhere in the Bay Area including Berkeley, Oakland, Silicon Valley, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Marin County, Point Reyes National Seashore, Sonoma County and Napa Valley wineries, and more.
Taxi: Taxi rides are easy to arrange and very affordable. Choose from traditional taxis to services like Lyft and Uber to get around town!
Having a smart phone for maps, transportation schedules, and mapping is a real convenience, although not a necessity. We have wireless internet to assist in your searches.
The telephone number listed does not accept texts as it is a home phone so feel free to call and leave a voice message or use email. If you need to text do so to Ed’s cell which we'll provide once your reservation is confirmed.
Respectfully quiet after 10pm, though free to come in anytime. Light kitchen use including making breakfast and putting together a light lunch, but no major cooking projects.
No smoking please.
Judy and her husband were very welcoming and sweet. We had a lovely stay with no issues, and they were very flexible with time. They even let us bring our bikes into the entryway. A great home with a beautiful view, would love to return someday.
Judy and Ed are very nice and approachable. We felt welcomed at their place. The house is in a quiet and nice neighborhood. And it has a great view of the city. Availability of street parking was a great bonus.
We had a great time at Judy and Ed's : they were very welcoming and friendly and couldn't do enough for us, providing maps and handwritten instructions for everywhere we wanted to go. Our room was very comfortable and we spent a lot of time drinking coffee and chatting in the kitchen, as well as admiring the lovely view from the deck!
Thank you very much, Judy and Ed!
Judy et son mari sont des personnes charmantes et accueillantes. Ils nous ont laissés très libres d'utiliser les parties communes, d'arriver quand nous le souhaitions, etc. Nous avons aussi eu d'agréables conversations avec eux, ils sont très ouverts d'esprit et disponibles pour chaque questions que nous avions. En ce qui concerne le logement, il s'agit d'une chambre simple avec un petit lit double et quelques rangements. Le reste de leur maison est correct pour passer un agréable séjour surtout si ce n'est qu'un point de chute pour dormir. La terrasse avec la belle vue est la cerise sur le gâteau. En tout cas, Judy a contribué à notre bon séjour à SF, de bons conseils, une bonne humeur générale, etc. Si vous cherchez un point pour dormir chez des San Franciscains chaleureux, n'hésitez pas !
It was our first experience @ airbnb and it could not have been better!! Judy was an amazing host, she was so helpful & it was really nice to talk to her!
The bed is also really comfy so go and write Judy! :)
it was a tremendous moment,
We will come back..
Thank you for your kindness.
Judy provided great support, although we arrived very late. In the morning we received valuable information about what to do & to see from her which helped a lot. Great experience with her, please do not miss the chance to relax and enjoy the view from her deck.

About the Host, Judy
I'm a Yoga teacher and body movement therapist, happy to share my skills with you for a deeply discounted fee (just give me your tired, your poor). When I'm not doing yoga or helping others feel better I'm often imagining myself in a Latin American country such as Guatemala where I lived with a family and studied Spanish. If you're up for it, I welcome the opportunity to practice with you.
