Interaction with Guests
We are a friendly family and are also sensitive to the needs of our guests. It is possible to have a great deal of privacy or to socialize as the guests desire.
One of the things I love about this neighborhood is that while it is quite central to many interesting sites and places to visit, it feels like a quiet, residential neighborhood. Our house is so peaceful and yet so convenient for finding your way around the city. The views looking west are spectacular as are the sunsets. Amenities like grocery stores, coffee shops, a great all American Diner (Mel's), drugstores, restaurants, Golden Gate Park with running and biking trails, great vintage clothes shopping( Haight St.) are all close by.
Yes there are several MUNI bus lines within a 1 to 4 block radius.
I have a great friend who drives a taxi and she gives special rates to my guests.
Other Things to Note
Yes I am an energy healer and do energy clearing on my home on a daily basis so if you are sensitive to energy this is a great choice for you!
This is a no smoking property. No raucous parties. We appreciate guests who treat our home as if it is their own. We LOVE to make your experience as comfortable and lovely as possible and we maintain the "energy" at our Palace by working with the Archangels and doing frequent energy clearing. It is a peaceful, relaxing and inspiring environment. We ask all guests to clean up after themselves in public spaces and to be thoughtful and considerate. Prompt communication of any issues that may be affecting your stay is appreciated so that we can do everything possible to accommodate your needs!
Thank you so much Elizabeth for a great experience last week! Greg and I loved staying at the Palace of the Soul : ) It was one of the most pleasant experiences staying outside of our own home. We only wish we would have had the opportunity to hang out, enjoy conversation and the space more so than we did. For that reason we will definitely be returning!
Beautiful, magical, artist's mansion as described in her profile. I was welcomed with a smile and a guided tour of the home and the beautiful art pieces. I loved my experience there. It was quiet and the neighborhood is exactly where I wanted to be. Close to my daughter's dorm room at USF as well as close to shops and restaurants. Elizabeth was very welcoming to both me and my daughter who spent a little time there. Overall, great experience. I will definitely be back!
It is a nice experience to stay in Elizabeth's place. It is a incredibly amazing house full with beautiful art works, the room is spacious and has very nice view. She has lots of tour brochures in her place, and very detailed shopping and dining suggestions are provided as well.
My hubby and I had a wonderful time staying in your beautiful and artistic home. I loved the gardens! The room and bed were so comfortable. We enjoyed visiting with Elizabeth, Freddy and daughter. We came by rental car & just took a taxi to & from the downtown or marina areas. The one night we stopped in SF after sightseeing in Monterey at a Diner, we came out & our car was broken into. So make sure you don't leave anything in back seat of car. We didn't have a trunk but got one for our next car. They stole my purse and duffel bag. But we had the best vacation, we loved Muir Woods, Chinatown, the Piers and Alcatraz. We really like Castlio de Amorosa in Castiloga (Napa valley) and also Yosemite and Monterey/17 mile scenic drive was breathtaking! Thanks Elizabeth & Freddy. Lori and Chris from WI
Elizabeth and her (very cool!) family were excellent hosts! The house itself is stunning, the room and bathroom were very nice with a gorgeous view from the window. Elizabeth is knowledgable about the area and was full of suggestions for eating out and things to do, most of all though we enjoyed the chilled out conversation with her and her family. We highly recommend them!
The accommodations were clean, comfortable and quiet. The property is located in a nice part of the city across from the USF Lone Mountain campus. The view from the room was amazing, as the property sits on a high hill, and there are beautiful gardens on the property. The entire house is quite large, with large common spaces and interesting artisitic decor. We were given a warm welcome by the hostess, and upon our arrival, there was a nice bottle of wine and a large bottle of water and drinking glasses for each in our room, as well as a package of chocolate wafers. (Definitely a nice touch!). The private attached full bathroom was also a definite plus. The bed was quite comfortable. Would definitely recommend this property to others visiting the City, and will consider it again on future visits to SF.
Fantastic house, extremely convenient room, amazing host!! This place is magical, amazing art and view of the city.

I am a visionary artist and teacher. I live in San Francisco at the gorgeous Palace of the Soul where I love to welcome my tribe of Cosmic Cowgirls as well as mystic adventurers from other lands!!! I have been a traveler all my life, from the time I was 6 months old and it is a great pleasure to open my very unique home to other fellow adventurers.
I adore people....all kinds and all ages and as a host I will welcome you and I am willing to be your guide to this wonderful city or let you discover it for yourself. I do my best to be sensitive to what it is that you want from your stay and to provide you with a warm, welcoming and peaceful sanctuary from where you can explore this incredible city.
I work at home as an artist and so have a very flexible schedule that allows me to be available for check ins and visiting with my guests if they like to visit. I live with my sweetheart, Fast Freddy Sims who is a very talented blues musician, songwriter, artist and landscape designer. My youngest daughter (18) still lives at home and my older two children come and go (23 and 20). I would describe our household as a loving, kind family who are very passionate and dedicated to creative self-expression and the arts.
I have lived in Italy, England, Brazil, and Mexico and traveled to Greece, Scotland, Peru,Germany, Holland, Portugal, Spain, the Seychelles, the Caribbean, France and there are probably countries that I am forgetting. My style of traveling has changed throughout the years and so I believe that I understand and am open to travelers of all types.
I love being an Airbnb host for a multitude of reasons. These include what I see as a new culture and community that Airbnb has given birth to. For me it means being part of a loving and inspiring perspective that views the world and all people in it as part of one human family. I have discovered that we are so often connected in ways that are wonderful and enriching and delightfully surprising!! I am passionate about the importance of hospitality in our interactions with others!
A little bit about my ART;
I am a Contemporary Symbolist. I create art to heal myself and others and work with prayer, meditation and sacred symbols and archetypes to reweave and re-story my life in a way that is legendary, passionate, joyful and ALIVE!!
My art depicts a spiritual journey, the telling of a story that contactsthe viewer at the level of the soul. My art inspires others to look more deeply at the work and at themselves as they view layers and layers of prayer,hope, paradox and spirit woven together between particles of paint, bead, rhinestone, shell, bone and glitter. As a teacher, I encourage my students to explore materials that animate their sense of wonder, joy and play.
By playing with the sparkle of jewels, beads & glitter the divine sparkle of imagination that lives within them is awakened and they gain access to their own healing and personal transformation. Creating in this way leads to the understanding of how the sacred exists in matter and this wisdom integrates the spiritual, emotional and physical selves. My world view is that of a symbolist. I am present to the meaning in all aspects of life.
I am a trained energy healer as well as being a visionary artist and teacher. I maintain the energy of our home with a beautiful array of different techniques, including working with the Archangels and clearing heavy, dense energy with sacred sage spray, blessings and prayers. I love to add extra blessings for all my guests so that their stay in my home is peaceful, relaxed and joyful. It is a delight to me to hear how well people sleep and how wonderful they feel when they are visiting.
I believe that the greatest gift of my life is the presence of other people in it and your presence in my home is a gift that I am grateful for.
