The Neighborhood

_Wake up in a morning to a jaw-dropping view of the sun rising over San Francisco Bay, make yourself breakfast while watching boats sailing, have some afternoon tea and see fog rolling in from the ocean, sip wine and enjoy city and bridge lights, fall asleep under a fog-horns lullaby.

Getting around

This area is probably the most motorist friendly. There is a plenty of street parking and easy access to major freeways and routes, including 49-miles scenic route.
The street is located on the very top of the steep hill, a treat for hiking aficionados. The closest bus stop is about 0.5 mile walk, but for quick, fun, inexpensive and truly San Franciscan transportation we recommend using Lyft.

If you are flying to/from SFO and not renting a car we can arrange a pick-up/drop-off for an additional fee $40.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My sister and I had a short but sweet stay at Natasha's beautiful abode. As others have commented the view of San Fran is magnificent. Only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!

    February 2014
  • This place was absolutely stunning. My husband and I were in love with the view. It was hard to leave the place and explore the city, when it was all right in front of your eyes. Natasha was very nice and communication with her was quick and reliable. Not only was the place amazing, the awesome hike to Twin Peaks is definitely not something to miss. Highly recommended.

    February 2014
  • Natasha's house is beautiful and comforting. The pictures in the listing don't capture how peaceful and elegant the space is. The light is perfect and I felt like I was staying in a spa instead of a house. I've stayed in many AirBnB houses and this is one of the best. Highly recommended.

    February 2014
  • Great hosts, great space, and a fantastic view of San Fran.

    The only issue we had was getting taxis to pick us up or drop us off at this location (I guess they think it remote, despite it being smack dab in the middle of SF). To get around this we used Uber and Lyft for friendly, clean, dependable rides!

  • My first time using Airbnb and it was extremely positive. Accommodating host went above and beyond - meeting some of our extra and quirky demands as a film crew, recommending great places to eat on the neighbourhood, etc. The place (and view it offered) was gorgeous. My only complaint was that I had to work instead of enjoying this rental on holiday.

    January 2014
  • From Vistas & Zen above SF/ Twin Peaks we had the best view at the City - incredible! Natasha kept everything in clean condition and we felt very comfortable. If I have to stay again in SF, I will come back to this place for sure.

    January 2014
  • The house and the view are fantastic.Everything about the home is super nice. We enjoyed being up on Twin Peeks as well. No problem parking. I would like to stay here every time we are in San Francisco.

    January 2014
  • We had a wonderful stay at our Twin Peaks Zen apt. Natasha was very hospitable checking in with us and helping us to plan our trip. The apt. is in the middle of the city, yet very quiet. We were only minutes away from anywhere we wanted to go. The views are incredible. We would definitely return here again.

    December 2013
  • Natasha was a great host. Their place is incredibly nice with truly amazing views in a peaceful neighborhood atop Twin Peaks. Very centrally located but a quiet escape if you wanted to get away from it all. Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful sanctuary in SF.

    December 2013
  • I loved staying with Natasha and Tess. Their home is beautiful and comfortable with an incredible view of the city. They were the perfect hosts. I had a wonderful time and I wish I could have stayed longer. I will definitely stay there next time I'm in San Francisco.

I'm an avid traveler, curious about people and things. Professionally I studied Economics and Photography. Areas where I have a strong interest include Cultural Anthropology, Art History, Jungian Psychology, Literature and performing arts to name a few. I'm very excited about the prospects that sharing economy promises and am proud in taking part in it. I hope that platforms like this will bring an authentic travel back, when the travelers learn about new places from the locals. Throughout my travels I stayed in all types of lodging, from campgrounds and motels to five star resorts and boutique hotels. While being a host I strive to bring the best practices in hospitality. For that my credo is "Nothing in excess, but necessities are of the highest standard".
