Lisa was a fantastic host, always available if you need something. I had a big issue with my luggage on arrival in USA. Lisa immediately offered to help me , It was natural for her. Her help was precious.
The flat is very clean and tidy. Exactly as the pictures. Sofa is very comfortable. It was our first Stay in San francisco and I would definetely recommend to book this flat. Excellent transport links and nice neighborhood.
The space was amazing - super clean, excellent location, amazing host. Lisa was super helpful in giving us a sense of things to do and even had some incredible wine for us (we were honeymooners) at the apartment! Would love to stay again next time we're back.
The apartment is located on a main street with a bus line and quite a few choices for food. Its just far enough away from the busier parts of SF to be quiet, but close enough for easy access to the Mission and main thoroughfares. The park just north of the apartment is a special place to catch a sunset over the Bay. The apartment itself is cozy, clean and comfortable. All in all, it was a great stay and we would book again.
The apartment is clean and in a sweet neighborhood. The apartment is on a main road so it's a little noisy but there is a bus just out the front to get around easily. It was easy to check in and out and Lisa was around if we needed anything. There is a cash payment for cleaning and security that is listed in the apartment description but not listed when you go and check out through air bnb. Great views from the top of the street at Bernal Heights Park.
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Lisa's apartment. The apartment was very clean and nicely decorated, with nice extras such as a fruit plate on arrival. Lisa gave us excellent restaurant recommendations and great tips for getting around. We would love to stay again during our next trip to the area.
Lisa's apartment is just as lovely and fresh as the photos. There are many traveler-friendly amenities: great storage space for clothes in the bedroom, a nice towel rack and hooks in the bathroom, a great hot shower, and a well-equipped kitchen. All was so clean and organized!
Lisa was there to greet us when we arrived from the airport. She showed us around the apartment and explained how everything worked. We hope to come back soon.
Lisa's appartment was the perfect place for our stay in San Francisco.
Lisa was so kind, to reserve us a parking spot right in front of the building, which came in very handy for our arrival from the airport. She gave us a warm welcome, quickly showed us around in the appartment and gave us some helpful hints on how to get around in the city. She was always available for questions, while giving us 100% privacy.
The appartment itself had everything you could ask for and made you feel comdortable from the very beginning.
Bernal Heights is a nice neighborhood. The Park, which is a Short walk up the Hill from the appartment gives you an amazing view over the city. Public transportation is available right at the doorstep, which is convenient when travelling without a car.
Overall, i would definitely reconmend staying at Lisa's Place and would be glad to come again in the future.
I am a traveler and global culturalist at heart, with a fondness for learning new languages, understanding different life perspectives and meeting wonderful people from all walks of life who are equally open-minded and perceptive.
Having lived in many places around the world, San Francisco is home and I look forward to welcoming you to my city!
Safe travels and be happy!
