Wonderful Carriage House in Noe Valley

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in November 2016 at this unique Noe Valley property. The host was great leaving wine and cheese upon our arrival. The house is very quiet with a charming private garden. It is a short walk to the shops and cafes of 24th Street. It's in a superb location in San Francisco. The house was very well equipped. Would highly recommend it.

Wonderful Apartment in a great San Francisco Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We have fond memories of the Clipper Cottage. When we lived in San Francisco (Noe Valley) and having our 1st child, our parents stayed here. We became very familiar with this lovely apartment and Carla & Julien's hospitality.

Fast forward 6 years, and we wanted to take our two kids back to San Francisco and show them around. We were delighted to get the chance to stay at Clipper Cottage once again and can't say enough good things about the property. The Noe Valley neighborhood is a real gem in San Francisco - plenty of great restaurants, coffee shops and bars within walking distance (plus a Wholefoods to stock on groceries).

Highly recommended - we will always plan on using Clipper for future stays in San Francisco!

Charming and comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a lovely and comfortable stay here. The cottage is tucked away behind a larger home in Noe Valley in a great location. It is designed very nicely, gets great light, and was really a comfortable to place to sleep or hang-out between activities for both parents and teenagers. Kitchen is very usable and Carla left a very nice continental breakfast for the family. Beds (and sofa) were comfortable for all. Nice laundry set up. Would definitely try to stay here again. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Dear and greta Guest,, It was a positive experience to have had you here with your family. I try to address all the needs of the guest to make sure they do not walk out having a second thought of their stay. You handle the cottage as I would had done my self. Traveling with family it's a unique experience no matter how old they are in their lives. Every time will be much better I hope and come back some time soon,

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Clipper Cottage and we settled in like natives. Walked to dinner and back each night at several very good local places. We even walked down to La Coccia on 30th Street. We used Google maps and the biking recommendations for routes which were mostly flat. Carla and Julian are such good hosts and we are already looking forward to visiting again soon.
