The Space

We are looking for roommates and people that become a family member to us!!!
Our price includes breakfast and dinner daily!!
We will also wash/change your sheets/towels once every eight to ten days, clean your room and your bathroom.
We have own this fabulous house since 1994. It is a blessed single own home in one of the best neighborhoods in town!!! The sophisticated neighborhood that we live in is very safe. We have our own homeowner's association govern by our CC&Rs (the covenants, conditions and restrictions), our own police, water fountains, parks, gardens, basket ball/ tennis courts and I personally love the fact that our home overlooks the Pacific ocean.
Our home is what my kids call: "Safari"! I, the mom, am the one in charge of creating babies and multiplying our existing wonderful plants that have been part of our lives since my children were born...some of them have 19 years of age.
Our home is full of fantastic people, not only my own children but people that become my children as they join our lifestyle in the United States and this great city of San Francisco, when they come for international exchanges programs of all sorts.
We love our dinners together, our sharing and story telling time of the day! We expect the family at the table between 8 and 9 pm at the latest if they wish to have dinner here at home.
We have 12 bedrooms, 5 bath, family room, spa, sauna, kitchen, living room and a fabulous garden (San Francisco standards. Our BBQ place in the garden is our most special time of fun in summer!
I am all about family and for me it is all about the children and all that live here! Home is the save and happy place that we should all be blessed to go back to at the end of every day!!!
Smokers have a bench outside our main door where there is a table with an ashtray.
We recommend that everyone bring warmer clothing as our weather in San Francisco can be very foggy and cold specially in summer. We do not use portable heaters but maintain the temperature between 60 to 70 degrees by central heating.
We do not have locks in ANY rooms in our home!
Welcome home!!!

Guest Access

Breakfasts and dinners are shared at the table in the kitchen every single day. Many evenings we have the fireplace and we will eat in front of it hearing music and chatting until late. This happens mostly during vacation time and during summer and winter nights. Our living room is always open for us all.
We are a family!
You have parking exactly outside our door all year round!

Interaction with Guests

I or one of my kids will receive upon arrival. we will show you everything around for you to be able to enjoy! My favorite role in the whole world is to be a mom and that is what I hope to be for you, regardless of your age.
I take care personally of all matters in my life and in my family's. I am a single parent whose husband died but has been blessed to always provide the food for my family. You will be another member joining my life, as far a s I am concern so what I hope is to be treated as family and my home with equal respect.

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood is safe, beautiful and greatly located in the city San Francisco. We face the Pacific ocean and even though we are known like "The Beverly Hills of San Francisco" we are VERY low key,, VERY private! People can walk in our streets AT ANY time, day or night without ANY problems, thank goodness!

Getting around

We are six blocks away from our subway and few blocks away from several bus stops. It will take you a half an hour to get pretty much anywhere from our home, including to and from the airport!
You have 100% all time FREE parking at our door. Our street is completely quiet and secure! Our home is next to a beautiful park that has a water fountain...well, what can i say? God blessed me with my three kids and a kingdom of a home in San Francisco!

Other Things to Note

If you are coming for ONE night we will NOT give you the security access code to the door or the security alarm to the house, we will open and close the door for you! If by any reason no one would be home, then certainty you will give you the codes!
Our weather is VERY COLD ALL YEAR ROUND! It is VERY unpredictable so please travel accordingly. Our house temperature oscillates between 50 and 70 degrees all year round. Our city is known as “the coldest winter in summer” because of our fog. It becomes very humid. However we have many different micro-climates so we must dress to undress, always have a couple of layers on you! :D
San Francisco is one of the 5-7 most expensive cities in the world so we cannot have our heating system running at 80 or 90 degrees like in some countries. I personally think it is ALSO very unhealthy to have your body temperature change from 90 degrees to 45 degrees suddenly if you were to go out in a very cold evening. Our winters sometimes are warms than our summers. This past December, 2013, we were sun tanning all month long!!!!
We want everyone to have a home away from home! Truly!

  • I was originally going to stay at this house for only a month. But then it was so nice that I stayed for many months! The dinner's that were provided were wonderful. The house was very clean and everyone was super friendly.

    The room I stayed in had an amazing view of the Pacific Ocean. It was also pretty close the the Muni. So you could walk to the station and be downtown rather quickly.

    It was a great experience that I won't forget.

  • I lived two months in Lulu's house and I can say without a doubt that my stay at SF would have been less nice, rich and interesting had I stayed somewhere else.

    The house is great, the location ideal (shops, restaurants and transportation nearby) and the food fantastic but this is not what make this place special. It is by far Lulu and her family. You will get to meet an incredibly nice, interesting (why is there no Hollywood biopic yet is a mystery) and energetic (she could probably power the whole California by herself) lady. If you have time, you will also meet the various long-term or short-term residents of the house, which make for interesting discussions, stories and sharing of ideas.

    I doubt there is anywhere else in SF where you will feel more at home, more taken care of or more part of a community than in this house.

    My darling Adrien, equally beautiful words I say about you! Yes, our home is like the United Nations but it was complete when you got here! I loved all your fantastic inputs every single night at dinner and all the moments shared as a family! I miss you a lot and we totally love you! You rock!!! I am so glad that God sent you here!

  • I booked a couple of rooms for my uncle and parents (this is one of them) during my stay at the house, so everything was perfect too for them.

    As I said in my other review this is the place to be in San Francisco.

  • He pasado 4 días en esa maravillosa casa para visitar a mi hijo, que ha pasado 3 meses allí, la habitación y el baño son grandes y tiene unas bonitas vistas.

    La casa está bien y el barrio es bonito, seguro y bien comunicado.

    Las cenas son buenas y es muy agradable compartirlas.
    Pero sobre todo tengo que agradecer a Lulu lo bien que me hizo sentir a mi esos pocos días y a mi hijo en esos 3 meses

    Espero poder volver

  • Lulu (email hidden)e really took good care of my girl friend. Although my girl friend and I didn't have a chance to try her cooking, I observed all her guests enjoyed so much about it. The room was nice. However, the mattress was kind of soft to my girl friend because she likes super firm type of mattress.

    Response from Lulu:

    It has been a real pleasure to have you both! Fine, warm and totally kind guests!!!
    I wish I had known about the mattress a bit softer than needed I could have put a big piece of wood underneath! Anyway, next time! God bless you both!

  • Silvana is a wonderful and caring host. She radiates energy everywhere she goes and you can tell she really loves what she's doing. The house is full of interesting individuals from all over the world and it is impossible for you not to learn a thing or two when staying here. Silvana went out of her way to make sure my family and I were comfortable during our stay. She was very sweet and I felt as comfortable with her as I do with my aunts! If you're open to new and interesting experiences, I highly recommend this house, but if dry and boring accommodations are what you're used to, you should look elsewhere!

    Response from Lulu:

    Yeah!!!! It is all about love! Definitively, in Spanish we say that God gives us birth and we get together, meaning we choose the people we stay close with in our lives... you and your adorable family are staying in mine! Your mom is really a sister in my heart! Loved you all!!!
    xoxo
    Always, your "aunt", better American mom!
