Other Things to Note
This space is mainly used as my husband's office and drawing studio. If he needs to access it during your stay, it would only be during daytime hours, and he will prearrange it with you. Thanks for understanding!

We took great care to set up this apartment for you, please respect it and your (temporary) neighbors as if it were your own home.
The place was great and in the perfect spot to explore mission. We spent our mornings eating pastries at tartine up the hill in Dolores Park. Every night we'd try to go outside mission to explore other restaurants but there were just too many on mission to leave! Our favourites were Hawker Fare, Ken Ken Ramen, and LoLo. All less than a 10 minute walk from the (website hidden) was really helpful and answered all questions super fast. I will agree with one of the comments about eye mask and earplugs- we did that too. The apartment is in a big house of multiple apartments and you can hear a lot of what everyone is doing. Having said that, we weren't that bothered and would 100% stay here again. And don't fear the scruffy edges of mission, as Lu said its just the 'urban' vibe. Stay above mission (if you feel you should) and you'll be fine. Best neighbourhood in SF. Thanks Lu!
The apartment was exactly as described. Very clean and spacious.
Location was excellent. Close to good restaurants and cafes in (website hidden) stopped by to say hello on the first day and checked in during my stay to make sure everything was okay.
I really loved my stay here and wish to stay again!
This apartment is spacious, clean, well furnished and well (website hidden) checked in with us on the day we arrived, and we enjoyed staying in such a convenient location to the best of the neighborhood.
Our apartment was so cozy and everything had been thought of. There were spices in the kitchen, utensils so we could cook, and a selection of toiletries. It was just like a home away from home and we would recommend it to anyone. The area of the mission was absolutely gorgeous- very trendy with lots of things to explore
We needed a spot for a work trip and Lu's apartment was excellent. It was clean and (website hidden) was easy to communicate with and her instructions were simple and effective. We'll definitely think about staying here again.
We had an amazing stay! Lu was very helpful and the instructions were so easy to follow. I would definitely recommend this place and the area was so convenient and beautiful!
The apartment is exactly as shown on the ad. Beautiful, clean, with a well equipped kitchen for those who want to make small meals. It's located in a privileged area of Mission, in a quite street just one block from Valencia street and all it's hip bars, restaurants and stores, and Mission street, the heart of the mexican community and very good for public (website hidden) is a great host, very friendly and with a lot of tips on the neighbour and San Francisco itself. We exchanged emails all the time.

I am interested in historic architecture and interior design and have worked hard to make a comfy and creative home everywhere I have lived.
I have traveled to many Spanish-speaking countries, including Mexico (DF, San Miguel de Allende), Spain (Barcelona), Cuba, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Columbia, as well as Brazil, Israel, Tunisia, Grenada, and Sicily.
I presently live on the top floor of an 1885 Victorian in the Mission District of San Francisco with my husband, daughter, and a sweet mutt.
