Our home in NoPa is a classic San Francisco apartment in an ideal location.

The space

Our home in NoPa is located in classic San Francisco—a walking distance to some of the most beautiful and historical places in the city. Multiple scenic walks and picturesque parks are right nearby: the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood, the Panhandle and Golden Gate Park, Alamo Square and the Painted Ladies, and Buena Vista Park. Our neighborhood also boasts some of the best restaurants and shopping in the city: NoPa, Nopalito, Bi-Rite, 4505 BBQ, The Mill Bakery, Rare Device, The Parish Trust, and many others—two coffee shops and a gourmet grocery store are even right across the street!

Our home features a sunny, plant-filled, private bedroom and bathroom. The bedroom has a cozy queen size bed, a desk and chair (recently replaced the pictured dresser), and an arm chair near the classic bay windows. Provided is an electric kettle, and setup for coffee or tea. Lastly, we'll be updating our photos soon, as we've replaced the bamboo shades in the bay window with white blackout curtains, and our plants have gotten a lot bigger!

A funky living room is just outside the bedroom, providing additional space to sit and read, use a laptop, etc. The private, full bathroom is slightly down the hall and includes a toilet, sink and shower.

This is an urban neighborhood and the bedroom is adjacent to the street and garage, so there can be some street noise. It’s not usually a problem, but does pick up a bit during the morning rush. We’ve slept in this bedroom comfortably for many years, but we think this is worth noting.

Our home is a 4-bedroom flat, shared between 3 people. Carl works from the home office as a designer and photographer. Claire founded a music school called Little Mission Studio; she works from the home office and spends a lot of time at the school. Shauna is a producer at Joyable.

Guest access

You’ll be greeted at the door, and there is a short bit of steps. In addition to the bedroom and bathroom, guests are welcome to share our kitchen and dining room for light use. Street parking is pretty easy to find, although it is mostly limited to 2 hours between 8am and 6pm, Monday through Friday. Weekend parking is pretty easy though!

Interaction with guests

Because it is a shared apartment, you will likely see us around the house. We are very friendly and like to meet our guests, but we also can respect your desire to be left alone. We know San Francisco quite well, and are happy to share recommendations of all sorts.

Although it’s a private room, it is in our home, so we like to know who is staying with us. Please verify a piece of ID (like driver’s license or passport), and please post a photo of yourself as a profile pic.

Carl's place is a beautiful place to stay in San Francisco - well positioned to be in the heart of everything. We chose to walk more or less everywhere and found it convenient, especially to most of the great resturants and things to do at night. No matter how much we loved San Francisco itself we looked forward to returning to the bright, green and comfortable room almost as much.

We stayed at Carl's at the end of a two and a half week trip round California for three nights in San Francisco. Carl and Claire were really welcoming and helpful with recommendations about the area - which is great for restaurants and bars and has a nice neighbourhood feel. The room is a good size, decorated beautifully and is light and airy. It is on the road but unless you're particularly sensitive to noise you should be fine, we both slept really well all three nights. Would definitely recommend for a short stay in a fun part of town. Thanks again guys. Simon

Carl and Claire’s place is a must stay if you are visiting SF! The neighborhood is central to everything with plenty of walkable local spots. Everything about our stay was exactly as described and their house is so clean and cozy. Hope to stay here again next time we are in town! :)

Claire and Carl are really cool hosts. They are nice, flexible and have pretty cool suggestions for SF. The location is perfect to visit the different parts of SF with supermarket, cafés, restaurants, bars... close by. The room is big, comfy and bright, exactly as shown in the pictures - actually slightly nicer with new decorations. I highly recommend this listing.
