Hello! I'm from northern California and spent half my life in Hawaii. I love the outdoors, traveling, and finding moments to just relax and enjoy life's simple pleasures.

This was our first time using Airbnb and we were pleasantly surprised. The apartment was lovely, very quiet, close to the ocean and it had all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. For us, the location was ideal as our daughter lives only 5 blocks away – a short walk. Checking in and out was easy and Laura was very accessible. She and Mana (the cat) were the perfect hosts!
The Land's end apartment from Laura was great. It's far out from the rest of SF but if you're targeting Land's end and visiting the upper west side the location is great. It was super-easy to check-in and out and Laura was a warm and welcoming host.
Anyone looking to stay on the west side of SF should highly consider staying at this apartment.
Laura's place was an incredible find in San Francisco and she was always available and helpful if anything was needed! It had spectacular views and a warm comfy feeling like a friends place. The kitty was really sweet and just sat quietly a majority of the time we were there but always loved a little attention! Laura left the place with some food (fresh fruit and a few things in the fridge) but were were unfortunately not there much to enjoy them but it was an incredibly nice touch which lent to the cozy atmosphere. The ocean was a very short distance away though we elected to drive down and park when we went to eat at the Cliff House. Over all an excellent location and place to stay in San Francisco without being in the hustle and craziness just a few miles away! Highly recommend!
The apt is located in a beautiful and calm neighborhood, with plentiful parking space. It looks like every detail in the apt was well thought of and nicely finished which make it a very cozy place to stay. It was cleaner than most of the hotels! Laura was very helpful and Mana (the cat) was fun to be with. Overall a very positive experience, highly recommended.
The apartment is in a fantastic location, with lovely views of the bay. There was more than enough room for 2 or 3 people to stay, with lots of space and all the amenities (kitchen, closet space). Laura's cat was a sweetheart who loved to be petted and was unintrusive. Laura was very communicative and gave us all the information we needed for a quick and easy checkin process. Parking was extremely easy - we had no trouble finding spots right in front of the apartment. We had a great visit!
It is a perfect place to enjoy from the serenity from the Pacific ocean while diving into the exhuberance of San Francisco. Laura's and Mana's sanctuary is a definitely lovely place to be :).
Laura is an excellent Californian Host.
Everything about this place was great! You can't beat the location, only 0.5miles from the ocean and beautiful sunsets and views of the Golden Gate Bridge. Easy access to anywhere in the city via public transportation, or if you're feeling adventurous, by foot. Laura was incredibly welcoming and friendly, always positive and polite, very helpful navigating the city and offering suggestions of activities. The accommodations were lovely. Very comfortable and good night's rest. She has anticipated everything to make your stay feel at home and there wasn't anything I felt I was lacking. Would absolutely stay here again!
My girlfriend and I were lucky enough to grab Laura's place for our trip to Outside Lands this year!
Laura was quick with communications and very professional.
The apartment was very clean, comfortable and well appointed. There is a Walgreens right across the street which is super convenient. The walk to the park (Golden Gate) is about 20 minutes - perfect! I love the neighborhood as it is quiet and out of the way. It was fun and convenient to explore Lands End and get breakfast at Cliff House.
Laura's cat, Mana, was one of the best parts of the stay! He was very polite and great friend when he wanted to come hang out for a little bit :)
My girlfriend had this to say:
"I was pretty much starving when I got to the apartment since there was horrid traffic like I'd never seen coming into San Francisco. We were at least 3 hours later than planned. Thankfully Laura was sweet enough to have food there!!! At first I saw Garlic Mint Cheese spread and was like saaaaaaay whaaaaat? I don't know about that but being the adventurer I am I had some anyway. OOOOMMMMMNOMNOMNOM. It's now one of my favorite things. Thanks for that cheese introduction, it was a life changing experience.
Also there was a cat who was a super cute chub chub. I almost had to go 3 full days without a cat. I think I would have died."
Had 3 days in Laura's apartment up in Ocean beach. Beautifully decorated and cozy. The bed was super comfortable and she even left some granola and bits and bobs in the kitchen for me - very handy after arriving late. Would thoroughly recommend. My only disappoint was that I didn't get to meet her cat :(
The apartment was very clean and comfortable with all the amenities you would expect from a thoughtful host.Comfortable bed, nice sitting area, pleasant ambiance and nice neighborhood.
Laura was a great guest--respectful, clean and good to communicate her plans. She is welcome back anytime!
Laura and her sweetie were awesome guests, very friendly, perfectly on time for check-in and low impact on the apt.
Laura was a sublime guest. She was a great communicator, as well as very friendly. We certainly hope she comes to visit again sometime.
Laura was a great guest. She was friendly, easy going, courteous. I would have her back any day.
I worked with Laura for six months and know her to be open, responsible, and dependable. Since we worked together leading an expressive arts group, I also have a sense of her good taste and creativity and know that her place will reflect that. She is someone who really values her home space.
