Hello fellow Airbnb-ers!
I'm a longtime SF resident and a native Californian. I love film, books, art, good food, museums, photography, writing, and of course, travel! My favorite places are: Paris, the West, and the window seat. :)

Alissa's place was a perfect base for me: the apartment is roomy, cozy, and nicely kitted out. Comfy bed too! The location was pretty much ideal for me, and there's lots to explore within walking distance. Alissa was a great host, providing lots of info about the apartment in advance and even left a handmade guide to the best local restaurants, etc.
Alissa, went to so much trouble to make the experience like a homely hotel. The area is lovely and her place reminiscent of Holly Golightly's in Breakfast At Tiffany's.
Alissa's apartment is lovely and perfectly-located in one of SF's best neighborhoods. The building feels very quiet—not a bad thing at all (some travelers will really appreciate it) but something you should know. The check-in process was totally pro—couldn't have been easier or more convenient.
If you stay at Alissa's place, don't miss Thorough Bread (up the street at Church near 15th) or Tartine (around the corner at 18th and Guerrero).
I stayed in Alissa's place for a week and half and couldn't have had a better experience. I was traveling for work and didn't really want to stay in a hotel for that long. Alissa's apartment is so comfortable and close to so many great spots. All of her recommendations for places in the neighborhood are spot on. I highly recommend her apartment for any type of visit to SF--you'll love it!
Alissa's apartment was the perfect base for me in San Francisco. The apartment was charming and well located in a great neighbourhood. With great breakfast options just over the road and many other conveniences close at hand I couldn't have asked for much more.
The wi-fi worked well and although I didn't use the kitchen much, it was well appointed with everything one could need. Alissa was a great host, easy to communicate with and had even left a bottle of wine as a welcome gift.
I would definitely stay again. Recommended.
Great apartment, so charming, and Alissa was the perfect host by providing all the right information and leaving us to ourselves.
Alissa is by far the most accomodating and generous host we have come aross. From the beginning Alissa was very welcoming, she emailed us in advance with everything we needed to know, left us fresh flowers and a bottle of wine for our arrival and was always on hand to answer any questions we had during our stay. The apartment was very clean and tidy and the location was perfect for us, minutes to the Castro and to Mission Street with close distance to all forms of public transport. Alissa's apartment is charming and she obviously cares for her guests, she has great attention to detail, like the pink folder she keeps full of information for places to eat and things to do in the area. Thanks Alissa, had a great time!
Loved the Apartment, we loved the area we were in. Everything thing that we wanted to do was within walking distance of the Apartment. Great restaurants were just a couple blocks away. I will definitely add this place to my list of future stays in San Fran. Thanks Alissa!
I had a wonderful stay in San Francisco and it was made even better by having a gorgeous apartment to return to at the end of a busy day. I can't rate Alissa and her beautiful studio highly enough (especially the bed which is to die for).
Alissa provided lots of useful information prior to my arrival and I always felt as though I could contact her at any time if I needed to. On my arrival I was greeted with a lovely bunch of flowers and local bottle of wine....so kind! The studio itself was warm, welcoming, bright and spotlessly clean. It really did feel like a home away from home instantly.
I loved the area and found the transport links great for getting around San Francisco. As previous visitors have mentioned, Bi-rite's is a must visit - a beautiful little deli where you could literally buy everything in it. There's also lots of other grocery shops, cafes, bars and restaurants right on your doorstop.
All in all, I would certainly recommend staying in this lovely studio and I hope to be back one day. Thank you for everything Alissa!
We needed a nice place in the city where I could relax and prepare for some work tasks. The apt was lovely, the neighborhood was fabulous. Alissa was responsive and accommodating. We loved the apt! It was soooo much better than a hotel.
