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.
Judy and Ed were great hosts. From the very moment I arrived to the time I was leaving, they were helpful and sweet with me.
As a tourist I did receive the full experience of San Francisco that I feel this specific location can provide. The tranquility of their home truly made my trip to San Francisco all the more comfortable. Thank you Judy and Ed!
I had a great experience with Judy and Ed. They were welcoming, gave great advice, and gave me my privacy - to me, these are essentials while renting a room in someone's home. They made sure to communicate with us, letting us know how to reach them and how to use their kitchen supplies. They also allowed us to use their coffee and coffee maker daily, their dishes, and gave us space in their fridge. Both Ed and Judy are friendly people who seemed to genuinely care about us having a good time in their city. Their advice about where to visit and how to commute were extremely useful, so it was all much appreciated. Overall, I had a comfortable time in their home.
Beautiful house, Judy and Adam are very nice! My boyfriend and I had a good time in this building.
Judy and Ed are wonderful people. They are so friendly and welcoming. On my first night I arrived late and they offered me a delicious meal and good conversation. The house is in a great location and has beautiful city views. Stay here!
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.

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.
