Interaction with Guests

We live in a separate part of the house with its own entrance.

If we agree on certain time to meet and your plans changed please give me a notice as soon as you can.

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.

  • This house is absolutely amazing. The view is out of this world.

  • This place is absolutely stunning. The architecture, decor, and spectacular view all conspire to create an ethereal realm that will transport you someplace else, far above the mundane. You will feel like you're floating above the city, like you've found a secret zen-like space where everything is serene and heightened all at once. I've stayed in a lot of amazing airbnbs, and this one is definitely among the most sublime I've ever encountered. Natasha has an incredible aesthetic sensibility, and has created a very very special realm that you should definitely experience if your travels take you to SF. Oh, and she's also an awesome communicator, gracious and helpful and just way cool. You will be absolutely blown away by this place, I promise. If it's available, grab it, and prepare to be transported into a place you never could have even imagined.

  • This place was great! Very hospitable, top notch view. Much better way to vacation than a hotel!

  • Great place to stay

  • It will be very difficult to find the will to leave this place. The fireplace (email hidden) to warm up after a day of surfing down in Pacifica, and the view in every room is amazing. Natasha is very accomidating and it never feels like either party is underfoot.

    April 2014
  • Natasha's place was so beautiful! I've lived in the city and never have seen such a wonderful view. It's a little out of the center of town but I loved that it was secluded, quiet and relaxing. Don't let that deter you! It's worth the extra $5 cab ride. It was clean, well-kept, modern and welcoming. Natasha was very patient to explain the details to my mom and grandma, who were using an Airbnb for the first time. She made them feel very welcomed.

    April 2014
  • 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.

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".
