Very beautiful, clean apartment with a separate entrance and within walking distance to restaurants, parks, shopping and public transportation. The apartment was accessorized with everything you would need for a lengthy stay. Elizabeth was very gracias and attentive host to all our needs and questions. She made us feel very comfortable from booking our stay and all the way to our departure.
My wife and I would defiantly rent from Elizabeth again and highly recommend her to anyone.
I don't even know where to start. This stay was PERFECT! Elizabeth was very easy to communicate with and was very flexible for check in and check out. She's also incredible sweet. The place is amazing. It's an extremely private 1 bedroom. The bed is comfy. The bathroom has all the amenities including amazing towels, spa-level soaps, hair dryer, you name it! The kitchen is fully stocked. She left me wine, sparkling water, and chocolate, all of which were delicious. Finally, the neighborhood is ideal - quiet and peaceful next to the USF campus, with easy access into the city and plenty of parking. I've stayed in a lot of AirBnBs and I've never felt more sad to check out. I'm spoiled now. Thanks, Elizabeth!
Cozy. Convenient. Private.
We enjoyed our stayed at the Palace of the Soul that we never wanted to leave. Elizabeth is very organised and makes you feel welcomed and at home from the second you arrive. Everything is impeccably clean and prepared for your stay.
The studio is just absolutely gorgeous and it is in a very nice area with easy access to public transport/parks/supermarkets and restaurants.
I recommend this place to anyone, it is nice and relaxing but then also very easy to get to anywhere from it and Elizabeth is a fantastic hostess.

Great location, the apartment is as pretty as it looks in the picture, it shares a beautiful garden with a water fountain. The apartment has everything that you need. walking distance form the grat golden gate park. I will stay there again
My wife's sister and husband stayed in this wonderful private and self contained garden apartment while we stayed upstairs in the main house in an equally wonderful bedroom during our stay. This combination worked out well, giving us a beautiful bedroom and private bathroom upstairs while allowing us to share the apartment downstairs with its full kitchen and dining table on the ground level that opens out onto the beautifully landscaped garden which was always a welcome to wake up to every morning. This beautiful backyard is frequented by Humming & Love birds that swooped in daily to hang out in an array of fragrant flowers that adorn this private oasis.
Please read my other review for the "Palace of the Soul Peaceful Retreat" to hear more about this wonderful home and the hosts that await you.
Stay in the palace was a dream experience! I truly loved it and Elizabeth and Freddy was very kind and supporting. When I go back to SF, I will definitely stay here again. The apartment is very beautiful and close to public transportation. It is very quiet, neat, comfortable, and again, beautiful. Truly recommend this place!
Pleasant space. Comfortable bed. Good wi-fi. Wonderful garden. Easy access to shops & transport. Peaceful surroundings. Charming hosts.Nice area, near the Golden Gate Park.
Looking forward to another visit.
Let us just say: Wow! This appartment is truly a space for the soul! We wish we could've stayed a few more days to also enjoy the art tour of the house.
We arrived an hour early but thankfully it was no problem. Elizabeth is very warm and welcoming. We loved talking with her. The house is amazing! And the appartment was clean, with fresh cut flowers on the table and just simply amazing!
Parking was easy. Even if we had to drive around the block, it's easy to find a space. Even without the car, it's so easy to go by bus and there are amazing restaurants in walking distance. Just have to walk a few steep hills;)
Elizabeth had a whole list of great restaurant possibilities, maps, information about San Fransisco and even a "concierge service" ;)
Compared to other Airbnb options in San Fransisco, Elizabeth's offer is more than fair. It's perfect!
Elizabeth, we will return when we come back! Thank you for letting us stay here!
