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.

The space

You have your own bedroom with a comfortable double bed (smaller than a queen size 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.
Additionally:
We provide a simple make-your-own breakfast such as fruit and granola. , Feel free to store additional breakfast items 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.

Walking:
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!
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. 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.
Three important things to know about parking (we'll help you with all of them!):
1) Be careful not to block anybody's driveway.
2) Be sure to "curb" your wheels on hills like ours.
3) Pay attention to the parking signs.
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 in our listing 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.

Guest access

In addition to your room, you have access to the bathroom you share with us (and our cat- her litter box is in the bathroom).

Although you are welcome use the kitchen and dining area for breakfast.
we ask that you not use the kitchen for cooking your lunch or dinner or dinner.

You can use our outside deck most anytime that we are not using it.

Interaction with guests

We both work from home, but are enjoy interacting with our guests when we are not engaged in our work. That said, we also want to respect your privacy. We try to follow your lead when it comes to talking about your day but please let us know if we've missed your cues! Your comfort is important to us.

Other things to note

We have a very delightful cat named Emily. She doesn't go in your room, but she does roam the rest of our house. So if you are allergic to cats, we may not be the best choice for you.

We live on a steep hill. Most people have no problem with this. However, if you have limited mobility, this may be a challenge for you and we suggest choosing another place on easier terrain to navigate.

No smoking on our property, thank you.

This was a lovely space close to Noe Valley and with good public transport links. We stayed for three nights and enjoyed lots of time in San Francisco, the breakfast Judy and Ed provided, chatting with them, and petting Emily their elderly cat. The room is well equipped and has space to unpack a suitcase. The view from the balcony would have been lovely if only the mist had raised for a few minutes! It's about 30-40 minutes to central San Fran, but only 10 minutes to Noe Valley itself. We used a variety of different ways in and out to see more of the city. Judy and Ed were great hosts and provided lots of useful info on the local area and favourite hikes. We'd love to stay here again one day!

Judy and her husband were very kind. They enjoyed sharing with us tips on how to explore the city. It felt like through them we had a true insight of the life of the locals. They've lived in San Francisco for so many years and can offer an authentic experience of this city as hosts. I think that they both embody the spirit of San Francisco! On top of that, they suggested to us to one of my favourite restaurants in the city, La Ciccia, whose owner is where I am from, Sardinia! One of the best discoveries ever for me :) thank you! I

This little spot is wonderful. It was my second time staying with them in SF. My family and I explored noe valley a little more, what a gem! Great restaurants and shops, especially for families. Judy and Ed offered a list of recommendation and they were all great! Emily, their kitty, is very sweet too. Close bus access and walkable stores!

Judy and her husband were fantastic hosts. They were very easy to communicate with before check in. It was wonderful to have a flexible check in time. Upon arrival we met both Judy and her husband. They showed us around their home and made us feel very welcomed. The view from their house is fantastic. Judy gave us some great tips for things to check out. We went to Twin Peaks and then explored their neighborhood for dinner. We would most definitely come back and stay here again!

Judy and Ed are fantastic hosts - super helpful, warm, and welcoming. We got many helpful tips for our short visit to SF, and we were extremely comfortable in their lovely home. The bed and bedding were great, the view was magnificent, and the environment was relaxed and pleasant. One of our favorite Airbnb experiences! Thanks again Judy and Ed!

Judy and Ed were lovely hosts. Sure, the room/the bed was a bit small (travelling as a parent with my son), but it was highly compensated as we could use the whole living room as we desired. Besides from all, the view from their terrace is magnificent. Having breakfast there makes you want to explore the city even more. Public transport is within one-minute walking distance. The neigborhood Judy and Ed live in (Noe Valley) is worth visiting by itself.

This is a great value in terms of location and friendliness of the hosts. It is a small, older home in which you share living and bathroom space. The views are incredible; best you can find anywhere. Our hosts' sleeping quarters were in a loft above the guest bedroom and the creaking floors bothered me the first night. Earplugs solved this small issue the second night. I loved getting up in the morning and doing yoga with my host in their spacious and light living room. Bathroom sharing situation was tolerable. We both felt welcomed and comfortable in this very zen space.

Judy User ProfileJudy is a superhost.

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.
