Wonderful hosts! The place is beautiful and so clean, the lush garden and hot tub out front is a huge added bonus. Easy access to public transport and tons of restaurants nearby. Grocery store only a few blocks away. Enjoyed our visit!

Kristoffer's place is clean, spacious and very comfortable. The garden is very beautiful and the place is quiet. But it is also very close to shops and restaurants. The check-in is smooth and Kristoffer is very responsive. I had a great time there and would recommend the place to other travelers!

Kristoffer's place was incredible. Walking in, the home looked even better than it did in the pictures- and the hot tub was an amazing part of the listing. In terms of location, it was secluded and quiet, but still close enough to public transportation and many restaurants. Everything from check in to check out went smoothly, I would absolutely recommend his place.

Hi! My name is Kristoffer and my partner Dan and I love meeting new people from all around the world. We have been successfully renting out our lower apartment in this lovely home for quite some time now and have met amazing people from Europe, Canada, South America and all over the United States.

Having traveled quite extensively as well as living abroad, we both can appreciate other cultures and the different needs of travelers based on their ages and priorities of their trip. We both love to experience the cities we live in and travel too. We love eating out and heading to museums and exhibits as well as relaxing in local parks and shops and cafes. This love of enjoying the city has allowed us to build up quite a list of recommendations and suggestions for places to eat, shop, visit and relax in San Francisco.

We love to be as involved with our guests as they would like for us to be. We are quite respectful of peoples privacy and desire to enjoy their vacations without the intrusion of hosts and in those cases you will hardly notice our presence on the property. At the same time, we love meeting new people and have had dinner parties and wine and cheese with some of our guests that desired getting to know us better and had the time in their schedules to allow them this option.

Whatever your trip needs and you desire, trust that you will enjoy your stay with us here, Beyond The Palm, and have a truly remarkable, luxurious and wonderful time.

Cheers and we look forward to you staying with us soon.

Kristoffer and Dan
