Guest Access

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.

The Neighborhood

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.)

Getting around

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!

Public Transportation:
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!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Judy was a warm and gracious host. Although my schedule in San Francisco kept me out most of the day, Judy was great to talk to whenever I was around and very accommodating. The house was in a great location for all that I wanted to do in the city.

  • Judy and Ed were absolutely wonderful hosts and emanate an explosion of positive energy. My girlfriend and I were in search of a comfortable, picturesque and affordable stay in the hidden gem that is Noe Valley. Judy was extremely responsive when I contacted her with a couple of questions prior to booking. In fact, Judy and Ed were completely flexible with us in terms of checking in/out and gave us several great recommendations for food (Toast) and people watching (Delores Park). The view from their deck is unreal!

  • Judy and Ed are excellent hosts, they are super friendly and helpful. I stayed at their house for 3 days and it was great, it is at a perfect location and the views of the city are amazing.

  • We stayed with Judy and Ed during a brief visit to San Francisco. They were wonderful hosts! Unfortunately, we were in the city for a very brief period of time and as a result had a lot of errands to run in a small amount of time. However, Judy and Ed did not mind at all. They made us feel comfortable and at home as we came and went, trying to hurriedly accomplish as much as we could. We would love to stay with Judy and Ed again in the future.

  • It was wonderful to be around Judy and Ed. It made our San Francisco Trip even more special. We enjoyed the neighborhood and the sense of how residential it was. We also had a car so it was easy for us to get around from Judy's place. All in all it was a relaxed, easy and happy experience…(we shared some Ayurveda recipes!! they were my special highlight of the stay ;) )

    March 2014
  • We stayed three nights at Judy and Ed house. We had a nice welcome! It was really pleasant to discuss with Ed!! He was helpful and gave us a lot of suggestions to get around SF. The view from the apartment terrace is just amazing, the garden gorgeous. We had the visit of a cute raccoon in the morning. It is practical to stay there if you rent a car since you don't have to pay the parking. We enjoyed! Thanks Ed!!!

    March 2014
  • My husband and I had a wonderful first Airbnb experience at Judy and Ed's beautiful home in San Francisco. As Judy was away, Ed was our host during our two-day stay. He was very welcoming and a great conversation partner. Our talks with him not only helped us navigate the city better, but gave us an understanding of life in the Bay Area. Getting around was very easy, either by walking or by the bus that stops half a block away. The view from Judy and Ed's home is fantastic, quite the backdrop for some remarkable vacation photos. Overall, it was a pleasure to visit their peaceful home and to interact with Ed. Thank you again for your hospitality and making our stay wonderful!

    March 2014
  • Judy is great and the apartment was sweet!

    March 2014
  • The room was nice, on the street side but it is a quiet neighborhood. Judy is very friendly and easy going and I enjoyed chatting with her. I would definitely recommend this place.

    March 2014
  • Judy and Ed made us feel welcome right from the start! They were easygoing, interesting and intelligent and the conversation with them flowed. They were also great with my 14 year old daughter. I especially enjoyed their "organic" lifestyle and sharing my views and ideas with Judy. The location was great especially in a city where it is so important! It made it easy to come and go... and we did not mind walking up the hill which was a block from the nearest busstop at the most. Their comfortable refuge is also blessed with a dynamic view of San Fransisco! We would not hesitate staying there again. Thank you Guys for being great hosts. It was great meeting Ed and 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.
