About Michelle Bourgault

I love our lovely vibrant city. I work as an ob/gyn and enjoy meeting guests from all over the world.

Michelle Bourgault purchased this Studio in 1992

Why Michelle Bourgault chose Noe Valley

central San Francisco with access to public transportation, on 24 divisadero line, two blocks from the J Church train to downtown and 15 minutes walk to the BART station to East Bay or down to the Airport. I love the sunny climate of Noe Valley (most of the time:) and the wonderful neighborhood restaurants and shops.

What makes this Studio unique

separate entrance. Central to public transportation throughout the city.

                                                            Sweet Suite Retreat

                                                            Linda M.

                                                            I love staying at Sweet Suite Retreat!! It is comfortable and great location.

                                                            Michelle is great and alway responsive to any questions or needs.

                                                            Alway my first choice when visiting San Francisco.

                                                            Bring earplugs

                                                            CarrieKalama, WA

                                                            The place was tiny, but it did the trick during our couple nights stay. We appreciated the offering of truffles and wine that was waiting for us when we arrived. For folks like us who are accustomed to quiet sleeping quarters, earplugs are pretty much mandatory. The cable cars stop intermittently right in front of the apartment all night long, and the fridge spouts gurgling and bubbling noises constantly. When we tried to nap during the day to compensate for the sleepless night, we were graced with the upstairs neighbor’s singing, reading out loud, stomping across the wood floor, running up and down stairs, and slamming the outside metal gate. These are clearly things that are out of the apartment owner’s control, and come with the territory of staying in the city. There was black mold in the bathroom, but otherwise the apartment was clean, and a short Lyft ride from everywhere we needed to go. We didn’t end up needing to use the kitchen, but it was nice to have that option if we wanted to cook in.

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            I'm so sorry you found the electric bus line too noisy. That is why we provide earplugs but I know for those sensitive to sound it can be disturbing.

                                                            As for black mold, I do check the unit at least once per week since I have it professionally cleaned and have never seen black mold

                                                            Quiet, convenient, perfect for what we needed!

                                                            Bella S.

                                                            The space is definitely a studio so a bit small (would recommend limiting to 2 people) but was perfect for what we needed while in town for a wedding. Convenient for parking / public transportation, clean & cozy. The info on the HomeAway profile was out of date, but we let Michelle know so that should be all cleared up! Was also lovely to be greeted with a bottle of wine after a long day of travel :)

                                                            Fantastic location

                                                            anne m.

                                                            Really nice apartment with no tourists. We had everything we need and its location has allowed us to discover new interesring SF areas not originally planned. Our host was perfect and very accomodating.


                                                            David K.

                                                            The cute studio apartment was very clean, and the pictures represent it well. However, the bed was very uncomfortable! One side was considerably lower than the other which resulted in an "uphill" experience that was almost impossible to sleep. We tried adding pillows to make a more even bed, but the slope was just too great. Also, the apartment is on a very, very steep hill even by San Francisco standards. Very difficult to walk down. We finally took the car three blocks downhill and reparked every day. We won't stay here again.

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            We are on a flat block but indeed are surrounded by one steep San Francisco block in all directions. I have added that to the listing.

                                                            As for the bed, it was a new purchase less than 18 months ago and I've tried it myself.

                                                            Very Accommodating

                                                            Good location. Place is clean

                                                            and well stocked. We did not do any cooking, but most necessities are there. Looks bigger in the photos, but space is fine for a home base. Quiet safe location, but noisy from the foot traffic in the upper suite. Bed was comfortable. We had a rental vehicle and could always find parking within a block or so at night. Overall quite happy.
