Our stay with Elizabeth was an absolute delight. The location is extremely safe, and the space is so beautiful and calming. Elizabeth left us chocolate, and wine. She made herself available if we needed anything. We even left our keys behind, and she was so kind to mail them to us after our stay. If we ever make it back to San Francisco, we will not stay anywhere else. Highly recommend!

Elizabeth was great. She met me when I arrived and was very warm and welcoming. I loved staying at her place and hope I can stay there again. I loved looking out on the beautiful garden. Her place was perfect and had everything I needed and more. The bed was super comfortable.

This gorgeous place is even more beautiful in person! If you are looking for a wonderful place to stay with privacy and cleanliness, this is your place! We loved staying here and Elizabeth was so kind and helpful with all our questions and requests. The bed was super cozy and the shower was very good. I brought my 6 month old daughter and Elizabeth was so kind to bring her her own blanket and towel, she had a blast and we loved staying! There are some places to eat down the street about a 10 min walk and the apt is close to buses. Elizabeth was so kind and really made us feel welcome, she had a great list of places to go nearby to help us navigate, we thank you for everything!

Our host was very accommodating, and provided all the necessary information re: the apartment, restaurants, shopping, and the general area. The location is lovely, quiet yet with easy access to the rest of the city. The apartment is very comfortable, quiet, with all the amenities--very peaceful. Elizabeth has created a charming, unique space, with a beautiful garden, and artistic touches to soothe the spirit. Our stay was very relaxing. I strongly recommend this apartment.

Location, location, location. You can't beat this beautiful house within walking distance to shops and the Golden Gate Park. My favorite feature was the meticulous garden right outside the door. The pictures, lovely as they are, cannot capture the comfortable and airy rooms of this accommodation. The hosts were gracious and accommodating. I stayed here on a business trip, much preferring the home-like atmosphere to cookie cutter hotel rooms. The bus stop is very close (4 houses down) and I made it easily in and out of downtown every day. 2 big thumbs up!

Elizabeth's apartment was a stunningly beautiful and comfortable space, indoors and out. Her friend Trish who played hostess while we were there also invited us to see the art and decor upstairs-so inspiring! It was a great location, close to services, but in a very quiet neighborhood. We loved our stay there.

The apartment was lovely and the location is great. We walked and/or rode the bus everywhere. The back garden is very inviting and relaxing after a busy day if sightseeing.

I am a visionary artist and teacher. I live in San Francisco at the gorgeous Palace of the Soul where I love to welcome my tribe of Cosmic Cowgirls as well as mystic adventurers from other lands!!! I have been a traveler all my life, from the time I was 6 months old and it is a great pleasure to open my very unique home to other fellow adventurers.

I adore people....all kinds and all ages and as a host I will welcome you and I am willing to be your guide to this wonderful city or let you discover it for yourself. I do my best to be sensitive to what it is that you want from your stay and to provide you with a warm, welcoming and peaceful sanctuary from where you can explore this incredible city.

I work at home as an artist and so have a very flexible schedule that allows me to be available for check ins and visiting with my guests if they like to visit. I live with my sweetheart, Fast Freddy Sims who is a very talented blues musician, songwriter, artist and landscape designer. My three children come and go (25, 22 and 20). I would describe our household as a loving, kind family who are very passionate and dedicated to creative self-expression and the arts.

I have lived in Italy, England, Brazil, and Mexico and traveled to Greece, Scotland, Peru,Germany, Holland, Portugal, Spain, the Seychelles, the Caribbean, France and there are probably countries that I am forgetting. My style of traveling has changed throughout the years and so I believe that I understand and am open to travelers of all types.

I love being an Airbnb host for a multitude of reasons. These include what I see as a new culture and community that Airbnb has given birth to. For me it means being part of a loving and inspiring perspective that views the world and all people in it as part of one human family. I have discovered that we are so often connected in ways that are wonderful and enriching and delightfully surprising!! I am passionate about the importance of hospitality in our interactions with others!

A little bit about my ART;

I am a Contemporary Symbolist. I create art to heal myself and others and work with prayer, meditation and sacred symbols and archetypes to reweave and re-story my life in a way that is legendary, passionate, joyful and ALIVE!!

My art depicts a spiritual journey, the telling of a story that contactsthe viewer at the level of the soul. My art inspires others to look more deeply at the work and at themselves as they view layers and layers of prayer,hope, paradox and spirit woven together between particles of paint, bead, rhinestone, shell, bone and glitter. As a teacher, I encourage my students to explore materials that animate their sense of wonder, joy and play.

By playing with the sparkle of jewels, beads & glitter the divine sparkle of imagination that lives within them is awakened and they gain access to their own healing and personal transformation. Creating in this way leads to the understanding of how the sacred exists in matter and this wisdom integrates the spiritual, emotional and physical selves. My world view is that of a symbolist. I am present to the meaning in all aspects of life.

I am a trained energy healer as well as being a visionary artist and teacher. I maintain the energy of our home with a beautiful array of different techniques, including working with the Archangels and clearing heavy, dense energy with sacred sage spray, blessings and prayers. I love to add extra blessings for all my guests so that their stay in my home is peaceful, relaxed and joyful. It is a delight to me to hear how well people sleep and how wonderful they feel when they are visiting.

I believe that the greatest gift of my life is the presence of other people in it and your presence in my home is a gift that I am grateful for.
