Everything you read here is correct. John and Joan are hardworking and attentive hosts, with the instincts to put guests totally at their ease. Joan is a dab hand with eggs at breakfast (chèvre soufflé with poached strawberries, pancakes, scrambled with bacon) and the Tartine bread is to die for. Wonderful location in the Lower Height meant that the buzz of Hayes Street restaurants was a short walk after a long day downtown. No air con but we did not find the street noise over intrusive. Strongly recommended.
