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.
Our neighborhood is quite charming, safe and has some of the best weather in San Francisco. It is also very convenient for retail shopping, eating, coffee houses, newsstand as well as convenient stores such as Walgreens and Whole Foods and a post office within just 2-5 blocks from the cottage.
It is very conveniently located just 1 block to a municipal bus stop that runs regularly all day and night. You can buy a muni card at Walgreens which is just two blocks away that you can use for the transportation system throughout the city. If you are renting a car, there is plenty of available street parking on the street the cottage is located.

No smoking on premise and no pets

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Clipper Street Cottage. Doug and his adorable dog Jefo were fantastic hosts. The cottage was cozy (bed is super comfy), clean, and well appointed with all the amenities one would need during their stay. The weather was good enough that I was even able to sit out on the backyard and take in some sun with Jefo before it set - such a peaceful setting. Doug was kind enough to provide fresh fruit upon my arrival which was a great extra. The pictures accurately depict the apartment. Loved the location - quiet area, adorable neighborhood, and within a short walk to the closest Muni. Would love to stay again - thanks Doug & Jefo!
The Clipper Street Cottage was perfect for my parents' stay in the neighborhood, just a few blocks from my place. They had everything they needed and said the bed was super comfortable. They enjoyed meeting and chatting with Doug. As a resident of the neighborhood, I can say this is a fantastic and quiet location with a very short walk to 24th Street with shopping, restaurants, etc. Thanks, Doug, for being a great host!
Clipper Street Cottage is the perfect place to stay in Noe Valley! There's a bowl of fruit waiting for you when you walk in and the backyard garden is absolutely gorgeous. Comfortable, convenient and a no-brainer, I'll be back the next time I'm in town!
Doug has thoughtfully addressed every nuance a traveler could want in this charming, private, cottage respite. I've been seeking a "home-away-from-home" for frequent cross-country visits to the Noe Valley area in SF (to visit my daughter), and I've finally found home. Now, my only concern is that this review will cause it to be over-booked! Thumbs up, many times over, for the Clipper Street Cottage and its lovely host.
This place was as advertized and reviewed by others. On-street parking was available close by at each parking attempt. Walking is nice to 24th street shops and restaurants. The entrance is about 200 linear feet up a a moderately steep hill so might be a consideration for elderly walking.
No sitting room other than bed and desk chair. Basically a bedroom. Otherwise, great! Had welcoming note and fruit, good ground coffee and filters for coffee maker.
Excellent host!! Convenient entry and exit with minimal interruption.
Perfect location. Close to so many different type of stores.
Room was immaculate and organized. Back yard garden to enjoy your spare time. Doug was very friendly. Would visit there again.
About the Host, Doug
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.
