About the Owner

I am a traveler and global culturalist at heart, with a fondness for learning new languages, understanding different life perspectives and meeting wonderful people from all walks of life who are equally open-minded and perceptive. Having lived in many places around the world, San Francisco is home and I look forward to welcoming you to my city! Safe travels and be happy!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent a very enjoyable week in this apartment which was well appointed and perfect in every way.



Prior to our arrival we received lots of helpful information on travel routes to the apartment. Although our arrival time was very late at night Lisa was there waiting to welcome us and show us around the apartment.



The apartment's proximity to public transport was ideal for exploring this beautiful city, an added bonus being that Bernal Heights missed much of the fog which affected the downtown areas.



Lisa was a most attentive host and was readily available and happy to answer any queries we had.



We would definitely recommend this apartment and would love to stay there again on any future visits to San Francisco.

Just What We Needed

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I wanted to get away for our 5 year anniversary, and this was the perfect spot in San Francisco. The neighborhood was quiet and the owner had sparkling wine and fresh fruit ready for us. The place was clean, everything worked well, and it was the perfect size for the two of us. We decided to ride MUNI busses everywhere and there was a stop just feet from our front door, which was super convenient. It took about an hour to take the bus all the way to Fisherman's Wharf and surrounding areas, but it was worth it to us not to have to pay or worry about parking. We just parked our car right outside the apartment (for free) and left it most of the week. Even when we did take our car out (like to cross the Golden Gate Bridge), we easily found parking when we got back. The owner was friendly and attentive. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Lisa's apartment

Lisa's apartment is super cozy, clean and a perfect location!
Very close to Mission district where is the best area to eat, drink, shop and having fun.
In front of her apartment, the bus #67 takes us directly to the 24th Mission street station. Easy access to BURT.

Great apartment for not only foodies fashionistas and cool people, but also nature lovers. When you reach the top of the trail behind her apartment, you can experience wonderful view of entire city of San Francisco.

I love to go Progressive Grounds (400 Cortland Ave) to have a cup of coffee and a little pastry in the morning. Great way to start the day!
It is also a good idea to take a class, Restorative Flow at Vernal Yoga (908 Cortland Ave) where is across the street from Lisa’s. I enjoyed it after the long flight from Tokyo.
It was so good to release the tension on my back and stretch over the body.
No reservation required. Just drop in and sign up a lesson. Pop in there and ask for schedule of a day or visit their website! CHAMALYN, the tea shop (317 Cortland Ave),
is good place to find various types of tea. 

Wonderful host, beautiful apartment. Very relaxed and tranquil atmosphere.
Love it! I cannot believe that Lisa’s apartment is in the middle of the city.
I highly recommend it!

Lisa’s hospitality made me feel so confortable at the apartment.
I definitely stay her place again when I come back to San Francisco.

Thanks, Lisa!

We returned to this lovely apartment for the second time, and found it, just as before, clean, comfortable, and convenient. We were able to walk up Cortland to The Good Life grocery store, which we love. The kitchen is well-equipped, and we were able to make breakfasts, as well as a few other meals. Plenty of space for clothing to hang. Plenty of reference information to help us. We will be back... Thanks, again, Lisa.

Charming apartment in a hip SF neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at the stylishly furnished apartment which was comfortable, clean and well-maintained.

The apartment is on street level with lots of windows to let in the morning sun. There is also a folder full of information on Bernal Heights and San Francisco vicinity carefully curated by owner Lisa which we found most useful during our stay.

The neighborhood is hip and upcoming with an eclectic mix of artisan bakery, gourmet mart, goodwill shop, church, yoga studio and a wide array of cafes and restaurants. There is also a famous flea market every Sunday morning.

Walking around the hilly neighborhood is a treat in itself with a good vantage point of SF on top of the hill. There is easy access to the city by bus and Bart, or have a long stroll along nearby Valencia, Folsom and Mission streets to take in the exotic street art and culture that is uniquely Bernal Heights.
