My husband and I are friendly hosts, happy to help you find your way around or let you alone, if that is your preference. I am a yoga teacher and body movement therapist, my husband is a mortgage broker. We enjoy meeting people from everywhere and like to practice Spanish whenever we can.
You can store some items in our refrigerator and prepare breakfast and lunch in our kitchen.
Many of our guests enjoy having a cup of coffee or tea on our back deck with its fabulous views of downtown San Francisco and the Bay.
You can also enjoy wireless internet access during your stay with us.
Interaction with Guests
Although we both have active lives, we enjoy interacting with our guests. We'll let you know when we're busy.
Likewise, don't feel obligated to be sociable with us. We know that you have your own plans and priorities, and we want to respect your privacy.
We live in a great part of San Francisco. The views are lovely, the air is fresh, the people are friendly, and parking is free and readily available in our part of Noe Valley (as opposed to many other parts of our neighborhood and the city).
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're also convenient to the "Big City" and to all parts of the Bay Area. We are close to public transportation and to highways that can easily get you to nearby cities and attractions if you have a car. (See "Getting Around" for more details.)
We are in a great location for walking, driving, and taking public transportation.
Many of our guests enjoy walking to nearby stores and restaurants. We are in the Noe Valley neighborhood which is well known for its cafes, restaurants, and shops. You can either take a 10 minute walk or a quick bus ride to 24th Street to enjoy the neighborhood.
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. It will connect you with other lines that will easily take you to any part of San Francisco.
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.
We're in a terrific location for those of you who are driving.
Parking near our house is very easy and free (unlike many parts of San Francisco).
We are convenient to other San Francisco neighborhoods as well as to highways that will get you to anywhere in the Bay Area including Silicon Valley, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Marin County, Point Reyes National Seashore, Sonoma County and Napa Valley wineries, and more.
Taxi: Our convenient location means that taxi rides are easy to arrange and very affordable. Choose from traditional taxis to services like Lyft to get around town!

Respectfully quiet after 10pm. though free to come in anytime. Light kitchen use including making breakfast and putting together a lunch but no major cooking projects.
I was the first time toUSA, but Judy and her husband helped me a lot. I met some trouble in my trip, Judy helped me. I am glad to meet them. Wish them and their daughter happy.
Me and my friend stayed Judy and Ed's house. If you are not good at driving and parking a car on the hill, you might be scared, but also you can see the nice view of San Francisco. Judy and Ed gave us many tips of San Francisco, and it made our trip awesome. We wish we could have stayed their house longer.
Judy and her husband were amazing. The house was clean and convenience . The bus station is very close if you don't care about time ,the bus comes every 30 mins.
It's my first time to use Airbnb, I am very satisfied with that.
Staying in Judy's house was an amazing experience. As soon as we arrived Judy gave us a lot of tips about San Francisco that made our staying even more especial. The house is really lovely and comfortable, and the view of the balcony is beautiful. We absolutely loved.
We had a great time staying at Judy and Ed's house. They gave us a lot of great Tipps about the neighborhoods and things to do in SF and were really helpful and caring. I felt really comfortable living with Judy and Ed, they made us feel like home, gave us coffee and tea in the morning and were really nice. The view from the balcony and the kitchen is great! The neighborhood is quit and nice and eben though it's not right in the center of the city, there are bus stops two blocks from the house that make it easy to go anywhere downtown.
All in all, one of our best stays with airbnb!!
We had a great experience at Judy and Ed's place. They are a lovely and helpful couple. They did everything to make us feel at home.
Their place is really quiet and peaceful and it has an astonishing view over San Francisco.
We shared great moments chatting and having dinner together.
We will always keep their sweetness in mind and we strongly recommend then to all Airbnb community.
Not sure what I can say that hasn't already been said in other reviews about Judy and Ed so I will hopefully give you some useful information when deciding whether this is the place for you. First, Judy and Ed are both awesome people. As Airbnb hosts, you expect welcoming, pleasant people, which they of course are, but they're also just great people to have a conversation with. Frankly, if I hadn't had plans the evening I arrived, I would've enjoyed just going out to dinner with the two of them. And though I only stayed one night, I spent a chunk of the morning with them as well and can't say enough nice things so rest assured you're getting great hosts. As for the house/room itself, the room was very comfortable, good size and quiet even though it faces the street. Speaking of the street, when you walk into this house, you will be blown away by the view, but you might anticipate that because this is the "heights" of Noe Valley--for those of you who haven't been to San Francisco, the drive up to Judy and Ed's is exactly what you expect--a very steep hill (hint: don't walk from BART or Muni unless you want a workout). And therein lies the charm. Their place is a 5-minute walk down the hill to Noe Valley, one of SF's nicest neighborhoods, and a 15-minute uber ride from downtown, but you really feel like you're a) in a "locals" neighborhood and b) removed from the noise of the city. Of course if you want to be in the center of it all, it's probably not the place for you, but I fully recommend staying here if you like having easy access to downtown SF, but want a little bit more of a chill space before or after work/sight seeing.

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.
