HOMELESS
Yes, there are homeless in SOMA (South of Market Street) as well as other parts of SF. The homeless are pretty harmless. They usually will not engage in conversation with you while you walk by. It is hard to see the homeless sometimes. It has gotten much better in the last 15 years I have lived in my home that you will be staying in. Seeing homeless people in reality is a part of living or staying in SOMA and experiencing San Francisco. I do not give them money personally but I do say hello and acknowledge them with goodwill in my heart. This seems to be well received. I have had my nieces and nephews stay with me and walk to Union Square. There have been hundreds of guests with babies and children over the years without any problems. Welcome to SOMA San Francisco. It could be helpful to know that apartments on this block can sell for a million dollars, so you are in good company with well educated professionals. I welcome you into my home and have done my best to paint the scene so you can make an educated decision about your stay.

NO SMOKING
This means any smoking inside the home or common areas in the building as well as leaning out the window and smoking. In the event that smoke is detected the full deposit will be withheld. Thank you!

DID YOU KNOW?
Walkability rating in SOMA is 97% = Walkers Paradise.
Due to the schedule for deep cleaning between each guest early check-in and late check-out is not an option for guests or bags.

P.S. If the price seems a bit steep for such a small space, welcome to SF! But honestly, its hard to find a place in the city that is so easily accessible and convenient, car or no car. It's all about location, location, location!

Arguably the most exciting neighborhood in SF, with new restaurants and bars popping up weekly. This is the apartment you want to stay in when you come to San Francisco!

  • Karina's studio is very spacious and beautifully decorated. It was plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 kids. The beds and sofa were very comfy to sleep on. The location is great for attending a conference at Moscone, and just 2 blocks from Whole Foods.

  • We had a lovely stay in Karina's place - it was very much as advertised - central, convenient, homey and cozy. Checking in and out was a breeze and we very much enjoyed the thoughtful gift basket. Thanks again for letting us share your home! We can't wait to be back in the city!

    Thank you for being such thoughtful and easy going happy guests! I'm sure you make everyone's life brighter that you encounter :) Happy New Year!

  • We stayed at Karina's studio for one week during Christmas time. The house is spacious, well equipped and has the best location you could ever ask for: walking distance to Union Sq, AT&T park... and multiple bus stops are just steps away. It is very quiet at night so be sure to keep your volume down. We celebrated a bit too much during our stay but Karina was very understanding. She even gave us a lovely gift basket for the holiday. I would wholeheartedly recommend this place.

About
I enjoy speaking foreign languages, helping others to be their best, exercise, decorating, spending time with my family and travel. I grew up visiting my family in Norway during the summers and have duel citizenship with Norway. Thankfully my relatives enjoy visiting often. I hope to be able to visit them more in 2014. The more guests I have the easier it will be to make that a reality :) SO stay at my place!! I love to share my home with vacation rental guests. I have met so many kind and thoughtful people from all over the world. I grew up traveling frequently so now hosting brings the world to my door. YAY! It brings me great joy to have the opportunity to open my cherished home, and to share it with others. They can enjoy the space I have created and get to know San Francisco from the South of Market (SOMA) perspective. Right now SOMA really is the pulse of the city of San Francisco with all of the new restaurants, start ups, and wine bars. Not to mention SOMA is central to San Francisco highlights such as: Union Square, the Ball Park, the Cable Car ride, Westfield Mall and Market Street. It's even better to be one block from the Moscone Center, considering many of my guests are attending conferences during their stay! It is a pleasure to be able to offer everything at your fingers tips just steps away from my home and your home away from home. I have had a photography business for over 14 years where I support women to be their best. It is an honor and privilege to have photographed over 2,500 exceptional and inspirational women. As well as incredibly fun and heartwarming. This coming semester I am studying Anatomy! I hope to have the chance to host you here in the loft or studio. Although I am not there during guests stay's I am easily reached to answer any questions. :)
