Elizabeth was just lovely. She could not have been more accomodating or helpful. There were all the amenities of a hotel with a private bathroom and toiletries plus a door lock. Wonderful view and a creative space to rest up in. The house is charming and highly original. Her partner Fred was also very charming and helpful. I did not make the best of my time in that end of town which I would have been more likely to do if it was not my first time in SF. Uber Share was very useful and it only costs around 5$ to get pretty much anywhere. Bus is even cheaper. Recommend this Airbnb as a slice of creative yet calming SF.

Wow! Elizabeth's art has to be seen in person! It was so lovely to be surrounded by such creative juiciness! The place was clean and the room private with great bathroom. Great view from the bedroom window and kitchen/ balcony area. Had all I needed and communication was easy. I was charged an extra $20 for late checkout which I agreed to pre stay and the place is expensive (as is most of SF)

Elizabeth's place is absolutely beautiful inside and out. She was a great host and so helpful. Home was clean and very warm and inviting. Will definitely be back! The bathroom was even stocked with every amenity you could want to need...like at a spa hotel. Location and neighborhood are great too! Near USF and St. Ignatious Church and Parks.

This was my first Airbnb experience. I prefer not to stay in hotels as I enjoy experiencing the neighborhoods of the cities I visit. In the past I had always used VRBO, but had become frustrated at the lack of delayed or good communication in attempts at booking a stay while using VRBO. My experience with Elizabeth was top notch, starting with the communication on her part. She is a warm, friendly host who provided clear, timely communication, directions and accurate information. I can't compliment her enough on her attention to to detail and thoroughness. Her house is a large, peaceful place in the Lone Mountain neighborhood. It is clean, quiet and features tremendous westerly views of the city and ocean. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, which is a premium as San Francisco can be quite busy with a discernible hum. The home is short walk from beautiful Golden Gate park. I was visiting my son who is a student at USF and the proximity to his school was very convenient. All in all, it was a very pleasant experience and I highly recommend Elizabeth.

Elizabeth User ProfileElizabeth is a superhost.

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 three children come and go (25, 22 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.
