I spent a month at Carla's apartment and can't recommend it enough. The place is clean and tastefully decorated, everything was in perfect working order and Carla even kindly provided steaks and wine for my first evening! The apartment is literally two minutes walk to the boardwalk and all the bars and restaurants that Venice has to offer. It's got great access to the 10 and 405 if you are driving and only 15 minutes form the airport.
Carla was a wonderful host and the neighbours were all very friendly, I'll be calling in again when next in LA
Carla opened up San Francisco for me. Having recently moved from Toronto, Canada to the Bay area, I eventually found my way to SF. But hardly knowing anyone in these new places, the feeling of disconnection was becoming severe. After living with Carla and the fascinating array of characters passing through her ruggedly beautiful home, SF is less of a strange land and more of a home.
The neighbourhood is full of character, and once I became familiar with its patterns and flow, I never felt uncomfortable. There are some amazing coffee shops in the area, and Bernal Heights is a short bus ride away. The many gardens are not to be missed. I also had great affection for the local cats, not to mention Carla's dog Romeo; always abounding in whimsey and life.
Finally, the room has wonderful light, the bed comfortable, and the size neither too small nor too big. The other rooms of the house are spacious and pleasing to the eye. The atmosphere always convivial, fascinating and down-to-earth.
Here I have made friends, enjoyed life and discovered much. Carla is a wealth of local information. I am grateful for the chance to live so richly.
Lovely home. Helpful host.
Living in Bayview with Carla opened pages of San Francisco to me that I would have normally never experienced. Gardening, neighborhood, night life, kitchen talks, weekend trips, friends, former roommates, networks...I felt like I had lived in the city for a while although it only were eight weeks. I am so glad for all the special moments, ideas, trips and thoughts that made my time a very special one...
Carla stayed with us for only one short night and she was a lovely energetic guest! We had a nice chat together about life and other zany things.... she would be welcome to stay in our house anytime. Thanks Carla:)
All dealings with Carla were easy and straight forward, I think she is also a host on Airbnb, the house was left in mint condition and she is welcome to come back anytime.
Carla and Romeo were so amazing, i would definitely host them again.
We had such a fun time! Romeo is so good too!!
This woman is awesome!!! Her dog is gorgeous and they are great guests. She is super down to Earth, and very easy to get along with. Quiet in the evenings, if you're sleeping, and has a busy schedule, which is good, if you work from home, like I do.. I would rent over and over to her. :)
I have known Carla for 15 years. She has always been a woman of her word and a woman of integrity. I trust her implicitly and recommend her highly for any business arrangement. Apart from business, she is a fun-loving person with a sense of humor and winning smile!
