  • I can't say enough good things about Lily and her place. San Francisco was a blast but it was so nice to come back to such a wonderful home. There were 6 of us guys staying there and we never felt crowded. Everything was so nice, clean and organized. Lily met us immediately and answered every question we had. She was available for us any time if we had questions or needed recommendations. The location was superb. We never had to take public transportation or a cab during our stay. We were walking distance to everything and the food and shopping selection within a 2 block radius was great! I will definitely try and stay here again when I come back. Thank you Lily for being awesome!!!

  • Lily was an amazing and gracious host, she was available to answer all our questions and help us plan a great week in the city! The accommodations were great, very clean and organized with plenty of space for all of our luggage and room to move about. The location was right near a transit hub that made getting around the city a breeze and there are more places to eat and drink then we could take in! We would definitely stay with Lily again and highly recommend her as a hostess!

  • I stayed with my team mates in Lily's apartment during a corporate trip and it was really nice. Located in the heart of Mission, with a great cultural vibe, surrounded by great restaurants and next to the Bart stop. The rooms are large and really well decorated.

  • Lily's house in the Mission was the perfect setup for myself and four colleagues as were down in the Bay Area for a launch event for our technology non-profit in downtown SF.

    The house is charming with its original flooring, moulding, doors and windows but with some beautiful modern updates to the kitchen and bathroom. The beds were comfy with high-quality sheets and plenty of blankets - with the aerobed and the couch - five of us slept soundly :) The bathroom managed to accommodate all of us too with ample hot water and the plush towels were a nice touch. The kitchen provided a nice central place for congregating and working together on the large table. Along with the fresh fruit, Lily provided we were able to find enough stuff for breakfast for each of the days.

    The location can't be beat. You are literally one minute away from the 16th and Mission BART station to head in or out of town. Footsteps away are some of the best restaurants and bars and one of the most vibrant cultures in the city. Yet you're tucked away in an alley which kept the entire house relatively quiet even late at night.

    Lily is a superb host as well. She was in active communication with us before our arrival, greeted us outside the home, and helped us squeeze in a tight parking space when we arrived. She informed us of what was in the area and even left us with a bag full of fresh fruit. Lily's only a short distance away so she's ready to respond if you need anything.

  • This is a wonderful apartment in a great location with a great host. I stayed there with several other work colleagues on a business trip to San Francisco and it was perfect. Lily was very accommodating of our schedule, greeted us all personally, and was very helpful. The apartment itself is very nice, and was very affordable for a group to visit San Francisco. The beds are comfortable and there's a great kitchen with everything you need if you want to stay in. But there are lots of places to go locally, and you're so close to the 16th and Mission BART that you have access to anything you want in the Downtown area. Despite the proximity to the BART station, it's on a very quiet street and we had very pleasant and relaxing evenings. I highly recommend Lily's place and I will definitely try to stay here again.

  • Everything about this place was great! Lily met us and gave us the tour when we arrived. Plenty of space for the 4 of us. Plenty of linens and towels. Great, comfortable living room and big kitchen with everything we needed. Location was awesome too, just a block from BART and a few minute walk to Dolores park. This place has everything!

  • Nice place, and nice host

  • Lily's place was beautiful - nice big bedrooms and an enormous kitchen. We stayed with our 2 year old, and two sets of friends, and had a fantastic week. Lily was incredibly hospitable - always on hand to give us local recommendations and advice - and even bringing us some ice when the weather got hot! The location was just perfect. Right next to the BART, but also just off Valencia, where there are loads of great bars and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.

  • We enjoyed our stay in this apartment and loved our host Lily. She helped us a lot and recommended a nice show. We liked the neihbourhood even if it´s a bit from center of SF.
