Description of the cottage:

This cozy & quiet guestroom cottage is located in the heart of the Noe Valley area of San Francisco. The spacious cottage with a 1-bedroom with queen bed/full bath/with walk-in closet accommodation overlooks and has access to our sunny backyard garden. The entrance is completely private from the street level and is accessed by a keyless combination lock for guest convenience. Plenty of street parking available.

Centrally located in Noe Valley just 3 blocks from the 24th Street neighborhood shopping district that includes a wide variety of boutique retail shops, restaurants/bars and coffee shops. Within a 20-minute walk to the Mission and Castro Districts and to a BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) station. A 5-minute drive to 280 Freeway, a 10-minute drive to the 101 Freeway and a 20-minute drive to SF International Airport. Public transportation to downtown is just ½ block away.

Room amenities include shampoo and body wash, soap, hair dryer, clothing steam press, coffee maker with coffee and tea provided, bottled water. Refrigerator, Cable TV, and WI-FI as well.

And who knows? The fluffiest and friendliest dog in the world (our bichon, Jefo) may just greet you upon arrival.

However, NO SMOKING on the premise.

Guest access

Access to washer and dryer in garage.

Interaction with guests

Since there is a private entrance to this private cottage, with a combination lock on the door for guest convenience, so there is no need for interaction with the host if you do not desire. However, we do live in the main house so we do enjoy the interaction with our guests as much or as little as they would like. I have met many wonderful people and love the interchange with them.

Other things to note

My career for over 35 years was in the hotel and visitor industry business, and I am very happy to have this cottage business and host wonderful people from all over the world.

We really enjoyed our stay at the clipper street cottage. Doug is an excellent host who made our stay comfortable and pleasant. We also loved the location and walked around 24th street almost every evening. Would definitely recommend staying here :)

Doug and his wife are considerate and flexible hosts. Communication and check in were easy. The accommodation was as described and the garden which we were welcome to use exceeded expectations. The nearby 24th Street provides an interesting range of cafes, bars, restaurants and shops. There are convenient transport links to downtown SF.

Never actually met Doug, but easy communication via the app about check-in/out. Free parking was a huge plus, and walkable (albeit with some big hills) to restaurants/ice cream/shops. We were greeted with a nice handwritten message. A few areas for improvement-- walls are thin, could hear the tv from upstairs, etc. Also, bathroom door doesn't shut all the way. Overall not bad place to stay!

Doug's Clipper Street cottage is an excellent choice for staying in San Francisco. I was struck by the care and pride of ownership with which Doug approaches hosting. There was excellent, clear communication beforehand; seamless check-in and check-out processes; fruit in the room; a welcome note; and plenty of information about the area. Doug seems to have thought of everything. I highly recommend it for its location (charming Noe Valley), cleanliness, and value.

My wife and I are empty nesters and love to travel, ski, bike, hike, cook, go to the movies, dine in San Francisco's great restaurants, and spend time in the Napa/Sonoma Valley wine country. Spending time with family and friends is the best and meeting new people is right up there as well. We feel so fortunate to live in the great city of San Francisco and look forward to sharing it with you.
