“Lovely bed and breakfast in a great location”
Reviewed 21 September 2011

Stayed here to be close to a friend living in Noe Valley- such a great location! Lots of restaurants and bars within walking distance, street parking was manageable and the house itself was lovely. The owner also helped arrange a lovely breakfast bridal shower for us, which was a hit with the bride and guests. My husband had a bit of an issue with his allergies since this seems to be a pet friendly bnb, but otherwise it was great.

We reserved six of roughly 8 available rooms for the immediate family of the bride and groom for a wedding held on the California Coast. We were graciously allowed the run of the house and even ordered take-out dinner for a party of twenty or so family members the night before the wedding. My wife and I stayed tow nights in the downstairs Cabana room which features a private entrance, a breakfast nook (with microwave, bar sink and refrigerator) opening into a beautiful flower garden, a king size bed, antique desk and wardrobe and a large-screen wall-mount TV. Our son, partner and grandson had the top floor doll suite with a jaccuzi tub and a shared kitchen. Delicious self-serve breakfasts in the kitchen and dining room featured smoked fish, sliced fruits, bagels, pastries, eggs, fried potatoes, and more - all prepared by a cook who arrived early every morning. The proprietor, Sheila Ash, is a fascinating fashion maven very active in the social circles of San Francisco and the beautiful home decor reflects her eclectic tastes. Many famous people have stayed at Noe's Nest and we certainly would choose it again. Just be very clear about arrival time so that someone is there to check you in and give you keys to your room and the entry gate.

Room Tip: The Cabana room and Sheila's rooms are quietest since they are farthest from the street but no o...

I just returned from a lovely 3 night stay at Noe's Nest. The location is perfect if you are exploring or visiting someone in Noe Valley or the Mission. The Nest is right between the two and is also near public transportation. Sheila, Cindy and everyone else at the Nest makes their guests feel most welcome and I noticed several of my breakfast mates were returning guests and had become friends over the years.

Cindy gave me a great tour of the garden that she is most proud of and it was a wonderful place to spend time either in the morning or evening. This garden is a delight and Cindy has taken great care with it.

The bed in my room (Kendra's room..ask about it) was so COMFY! They have several excellent cooks for breakfast and will custom-make anything you wish that is not already present on the breakfast counter.

Talk to Sheila if she is around. She is a wealth of knowledge about the area and loves meeting her guests. She does do it right and you will be glad you booked with the Nest and the people who take your needs to heart. I'll be back the next time I visit my son in Noe Valley.

Room Tip: Call ahead and explain your needs.

When travelling around SF you see these amazing Victorian era houses and you wonder, what would they look like inside? Noe's B&B will give you great insight into what it's like living in these gorgeous houses. They have amazing windows and high ceilings, and the way Sheila has decorated the place with photos it really does feel like you're in the midst of someone else's sentimental memories, which for me feels really nice and homely.

I stayed in the Kendra room which faces out to the street which I quite liked. It wasn't noisy at all and it had all of the amenitiies we needed, a clean bathroom, TV, lots of wardrobe space to store our luggage. It was cosy but in no way small for a couple. The Wifi kept cutting out but on the day that I checked in an IT guy had come in to either fix or install a new router. I hope they get that fixed soon.

That bed is amazing, had the best sleep of my whole trip on that bed! I don't know what the thread count was on those linens but it was a dream to sleep on.

Had a lovely conversation over breakfast with the other guests in the B&B and had a great pesto and fetta cheese omelette prepared by Chef Daniel. He left at 10am that morning so please make sure you get up early to get a chance to have some breakfast. We didn't have anything else as we don't tend to have a big breakfast but we did see a few small muffins, pastries and fruit.

We only stayed the one night as planned. If you could stay for longer and your budget allows it, I would recommend staying at Noe's as your base to explore SF. You're only two blocks away from the 24th and Mission BART. And it was only a few days later that we realised how close it was to the Mission, a slightly dodgier part of town where you're constantly wondering whether you should walk on the other side of the street instead. But I can safely say that if you're staying at Noe's you will be pretty safe, just don't venture too close to the Mission after hours.

We stayed here in May on a Sunday and then the following Wednesday while visiting our daughter who lives in the Mission. Sheila, the host, is friendly, but scattered. She had left us the key for our Wed nite stay, but ended up knocking on our door at 11pm because she forgot we were there. Breakfast is less than we are used to at a B&B - help-yourself bagels, fruit, cheeses. Beds were very comfortable. We were in the Sheila room one night, beautiful view, private deck, windows around the bed, steam shower, wifi and a TV. Price is a value for SF.

Room Tip: Ask for the Shelia Room (not on the website)
