see you soon!
The proximity was very convenient for my purpose of visit and close to the ocean and parks. I had everything I needed in this small studio and pricing was reasonable.
I stayed here just under a week and loved it. The only issue I had is that it was a bit further away from where I needed to be for work stuff (my visit was for work purposes only) - but that's MY fault for not properly using a (website hidden) map (haha)
For those that care about such things, the photos on the listing didn't represent the layout of the furniture when I was there, and I'm actually happy about that. I loved the layout they had for the space, and for 1 person, it was perfection. It seemed be way more spacious than what it shows on the pictures, which was nice :) I would probably not have an issue staying here in the future with my spouse, as far as space was concerned.
The studio was much nicer than pictured. It was cute, comfy and cozy, and had everything I needed to be comfortable.
This might seem odd, but my favorite thing was the hot water! I've stayed at many hotels, one other airbnb and the thing I always miss is good water pressure, and water that gets hot enough. Both were fantastic here, and after a hard day of work, and commuting in the rain each day, it was much appreciated! Plus the bottle of wine... Thank you Noelle!
Your setup is great, and the house rules weren't an issue at all! There's also a great "market" across the street which had vegan microwave dinners,nice cheeses, and all kinds of other yummy foods you wouldn't expect at a corner store (like Reeds Ginger Beer, my all time fav which is HARD to find in my home city!)
Others mentioned the noise. I was up very early in the morning, and went to sleep way late (I worked like crazy, only getting about 3 hours of sleep a night), so I heard the kids occasionally and I never had an issue with noise. I didn't use the noise fan. Didn't need it. I don't mind hearing people walking upstairs, that's common if one lives in an apartment anyway. Nothing out of the ordinary regarding noise during my stay. I slept like a baby, but maybe I can sleep through anything?
Thanks again Noelle!! Great studio!
My wife and I enjoyed our week's stay at Noelle's place. It was clean and comfortable. Price was very reasonable. I liked having the separate entrance. Short walk to full service grocery store, Walgreens, several coffee shops, restaurants, etc. We would definitely stay again at her place.
We rented this apartment for 2 months. The location was wonderful, close to Golden Gate Park and ocean. Bus stop to city is nearby. Everything was perfect, the flat was clean with everything we need. Noelle was an excellent host- she was friendly and approachable, responded to our questions promptly. We had a wonderful time on our trip!
Great Airbnb...modern refurnished apartment with its own separate entrance (we barely saw the hosts during our stay). We were able to arrange a late entrance as we had a late flight arrival. Location is good for people with cars (we were always able to park within 2 blocks) and bus stop to city is nearby. Lots of restaurants and cafes on Balboa st. Although the apartment is a little cozy there is decent storage places for bags and clothing. Internet works fairly well and there is also a tv. Little Kitchen with all the basics.
The only really issue was the morning noise of kids upstairs but we found running the fan at night effectively blocked this out (highly recommend leaving the fan on).
Overall great option
We had a great stay at Noelle's place.... The only very small issue was the parking but she does mention it to you ahead of time. It was nice to come back to a place that was away from all the hassle and bustle of SFO. Close to the ocean, a park and amenities. You have to to go and say hi to the Swedish owner @ Victoria Pizza on Balboa approx 4-5 blocks east (right)....great pizza! Thank you Noelle and we hope to come and visit again!
We had a great stay at Noelle's place as we spend our honeymoon in SF. The apartment is very cozy. Even though it wasn't spotlessly clean, we did find it comfortable. Noelle is definitely a 'hands-off' host, so we didn't feel we were watched and need to tip-toe around her place one bit! We had a great time and enjoyed ourselves!
We had a great time staying in the studio, it was close to the beach and easy to get into the centre on the bus with the bus stop right outside. Noelle left wine and a welcome note so we felt at home straight away and she was kind enough to let us leave our luggage in her garage while we were checking out. Would highly recommend if you're staying in San Francisco!
This was an awesome place to stay! Super safe and comfortable! A wonderful place and a great deal! Noelle and co were exceptional hosts!
We loved staying at Noelle's apartment that is attached to her home. The neighborhood was quite and quaint. We traveled to San Francisco on vacation. It was so nice to come back "home" to a quiet place after busy days sight seeing in the city. Her home is located very close several local restaurants, a small grocery store and the beautiful Ocean Beach! We loved the location.
The apartment was very clean and plenty of space for us. It was very nice to have a small stocked kitchen for breakfast and snacks during our stay. The bed was also very comfortable too.
Thank you to Noelle and her family!
