Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great place to stay! Valeria was an awesome host. Close to everything! Parking was easy. Stayed a couple of days for our wedding moon. Very cozy, and beautiful backyard that you have all to yourself! Would definitely stay again!

    February 2014
  • Thank you Valeria for letting us visiting your beautiful city! Your accommodation was perfect for us and we enjoyed our stay. Well located, tidy and clean!

    January 2014
  • Valeria was a great hostess, she was very helpful - helped us with directions, recommended great places and shared some wine and homemade baked goodies with us :)

    We felt right at home while in town for the Dreamforce conference, the location of the apt. couldn't be better and she was kind enough to let us block her driveway (parking in the neighborhood is tricky)

    There was no TV (which is NO problem since we have Netflix on our laptops) and no stove ( which is also NO problem, we made eggs every morning in the microwave - no stove required)

    All in all, beautiful garden - comfy beds - great coffee - great stay!

    We love San Fran & we love Valerias apt!

  • Great stay at Valeria's place! We've been able to visit San Francisco from a very charming location, close to everything !
    Valeria was so nice with us and really accommodating.
    Thanks again !

  • I could not have asked for a better first Airbnb experience. As a host, Valeria hit the perfect note: offering plenty of information about the area and sharing her contact information during our stay, but leaving us to explore on our own. The photos are accurate and the apartment is lovely and comfortable. If it had been a tad warmer, I would have spent more time in the beautiful garden and patio. Proximity to many excellent restaurants and Golden Gate Park, and to the conference we were attending, were a big plus. We completely enjoyed our stay and would definitely book Valeria's suite again next time we visit San Francisco!

  • Spent four nights in this cozy charming apt. with a lovely backyard. Came to SF for a wedding in Golden Gate park so the location was perfect. Also enjoyed the convenience of bus lines to downtown. There are several good restaurants in the immediate area and Burma Star was the one we really enjoyed. Valeria was very welcoming and helpful when we arrived and we can recommend her place to others who are visiting this interesting and beautiful place.

    October 2013
  • Staying at Valeria's place is my first ever Airbnb experience, and it was great! Valeria was very welcoming, and this apartment was more spacious than it appears in the photos. Located in a very convenient neighborhood, we thought parking was difficult, yet surprisingly we never had a hard time finding a parking spot close by when we return at night! So no matter what you come to SF for, Valeria's apartment is recommended for everyone!

    October 2013
  • Valeria's place is cozy in residence area. She was really nice and try to help me answer all my questions. She lives just upstairs, so it is convenient to reach her. Beds r comfy too. She provides some tips for restaurants and tourist attractions, also transportation.

    October 2013
  • Very stylish and clean apartment in a quiet and cosy neigbourhood. All you need is well accessible. We highly recommend the apartment and the polite host Valeria!

    September 2013
  • le logement est bien placé dans un quartier très calme et possède une entrée indépendante. très bon accueil de Valéria. Malheureusement il est très mal insonorisé : bruits de chasse d'eau, de pas, de voix.. et le lit d'appoint est inconfortable.

20 years of living in San Francisco is not enough to uncover and enjoy all the gems the Bay area has to offer! I am still exploring my favorite city of San Francisco and I am happy to help you in your journey! I love hiking and can share my most beloved hikes in the area. My passions are indoor and outdoor rock climbing, Argentine Tango, traveling, and cooking. I worked with and am friends with local artists. In fact, all art pieces in the apartment are made by local artists. I can arrange a private tour for you of our numerous art studios if you are an art lover or collector.
