Clean, convenient location, well-stocked, easy parking.

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a quiet neighborhood and we were easily able to find street parking nearby every day. The house was the perfect size for a family of four or five, and it came well-stocked and with amenities. Extremely comfortable beds, fluffy towels, and picture-perfect decor made this VRBO a relaxing place to unwind after busy days in the city. Restaurants and shopping (as well as Whole Foods) were only blocks away, and Dolores Park was a wonderful walk. Carla was very responsive to inquiries.

Cozy cottage, wonderful location,

  • 5 of 5

I truly loved our stay at the Clipper Cottage. The cottage was private and extremely comfortable. There was plenty of room for us and our teenagers, the space cozy and the cottage roomy enough to relax, work, and not be on top of each other. I found the beds quite comfortable, and the kitchen and bathroom more than functional, the entire cottage clean. Carla was communicative, accommodating and supplied the cottage with the essentials, plus some extras for our arrival. All in all, it was a perfect stay in a perfect location. I can't wait to return!

Carla was great and the cottage is quiet, clean and well-stocked.

  • 3 of 5

Carla was easy to contact, her responses were immediate, and she keeps the property very clean, which I very much appreciated. The cottage is behind her house, in a lovely family neighborhood. The cottage is quiet, and well stocked with pots and pans, dishes, glasses, etc. The cottage is old as are the appliances, bathroom, kitchen--but everything worked just fine with one exception-- the toilet didn't flush well and I had to reset the flapper almost every time the toilet was used. I alerted Carla and she said she would look into it. The other complaint is the beds, in the master bedroom the mattress was very soft and sagging; for some folks it might not matter, but my back was not happy while I was there. In the other room Carla took the time and trouble to put a mattress over the sofa bed, but that was uncomfortable too. So if you have a cranky back, this might not be the best place for you. If your young and your back is good, then go for it! Overall a pretty spot, clean and lovely and Carly is great.

Owner's Response: It was a nice rapport to have spoken to Carolyn and tried to accodate all her needs. As requested, I comply to add an additional vef for her colleague to stay last minute and make their stay as pleasant as possible. Felt really bad that Carolyn arrived one day late due to her flight delay. The main bedroom has a brand new bed and medium to hard mattress latest model and it's unfortunate to hear about about this back pain experience. I have never had a complaint about it, ever. Always trying to appeal to the guest request and ensure that all works well for my guest. Best wishes to Carolyn and colleague!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, both 67 and retired, enjoyed our stay at the Clipper Cottage from March 31 to April 3, 2017. We were joined by our 44 year old son and our 18 year old grandson, a graduating Senior in High School. We had booked another property previously, but the owner cancelled due to family emergency. We scurried to find a replacement and were lucky to find Carla and the Clipper Cottage!

Carla reconfigured the Cottage to adapt to our sleeping arrangements and we were very satisfied. The cottage is comfortable, included all the conveniences of home, and we were able to cook and live in a "home-away" environment! There were so many conveniences within the cottage along with a very inviting outdoor area for having coffee and relaxing.

Carla also surprised us with some starters in the refrigerator, including wine and cheese, water, and bread and jam! Did I mention the Ghiradelli Chocolates! The Whole Foods store was a short 5 minute walk to 24th Street, where there were plenty of restaurants, stores and nightlife... always felt safe.

We used some public transportation, but an Uber ride was about $15 from Fisherman's Wharf, which took much less time and we saw the city! Finally, Carla was fantastic and helpful in our pre-planning, and I Highly Recommend the Clipper Cottage in Noe Valley.

Terrific, quiet cottage in the heart of Noe Valley!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the end of March 2017 in this terrific, quiet cottage in the heart of Noe Valley. It's a well-designed, very clean detached structure behind a main house. The traffic and school across the street might be a bit noisy, but in the back, it was perfectly quiet. There is also a lovely garden area. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a place in Noe Valley. Carla was also super sweet and got us some wine, bread, eggs and cheese before we arrived. Thanks for a great stay!
