About the Owner
I enjoy speaking foreign languages, helping others to be their best, exercise, decorating, spending time with my family and travel.
I grew up visiting my family in Norway during the summers and have duel citizenship with Norway. Thankfully my relatives enjoy visiting often. I hope to be able to visit them more in 2015. The more guests I have the easier it will be to make that a reality :) SO stay at my place!!
I love to share my home with vacation rental guests. I have met so many kind and thoughtful people from all over the world. I grew up traveling frequently so now hosting brings the world to my door. YAY! It brings me great joy to have the opportunity to open my cherished home, and to share it with others. You can enjoy the space I have created and get to know San Francisco from the South of Market (SOMA) perspective. Right now SOMA really is the pulse of the city of San Francisco with all of the new restaurants, start ups, and wine bars. Not to mention SOMA is central to San Francisco highlights such as: Union Square, the Ball Park, the Cable Car ride, Westfield Mall and Market Street. It's even better to be one block from the Moscone Center, considering many of my guests are attending conferences during their stay! It is a pleasure to be able to offer everything at your fingers tips just steps away from my home and your home away from home.
I have had a photography business for over 14 years where I support women to be their best. It is an honor and privilege to have photographed over 2,500 exceptional and inspirational women. As well as incredibly fun and heartwarming.
This year I am studying Integrative Nutrition.
I hope to have the chance to host you here in the loft or studio. Although I am not there during guests stay's I am easily reached to answer any questions. :)
Guestbook comments from the owner
Ive stayed in Karina's apartment for a month and enjoyed every minute. The place is beautifully designed and fully equipped with everything you might need. The location is perfect, both close to public transport and a walking distance to Market Street and Union Square. But the thing that mattered the most to me was the personal attention and care that Karina has given me - She always respond quickly and happy to help or advise. If you are to stay in SF this is the place I would recommend.
5 based on 7 traveler reviews
Karina was very thorough with everything. Me and my husband only stayed one night. It was his birthday and I wanted to surprise him with dinner in a very romantic and personal space. This amazing loft was all that. Very clean, bright, romantic, and I fell in love with the artwork and vintage home decor. She has beautiful chandeliers which absolutely gave a nice touch to the living space. I wouldn't mind staying longer next time! The area was located around convenient liquor stores, coffee shops, and restaurants. Parking was in the building which made it easy for us to load and unload. We even checked out the roof top and it was a beautiful day. I'd prefer this place to anyone and everyone.
Thanks for the stay Karina! :)

As a frequent traveller it is nice to see people still put in a lot of effort into providing personal touches; and this place does it well. Fantastic layout with everything one could need and very cosy for couples. This will be one place I will be recommending to my friends and colleagues. Thanks again Karina.
Excellent stay for our conference at the Moscone
Karina was an excellent host and her loft is simply amazing. The walk to the Moscone Center was only 10 minutes and the SOMA area had a lot going on. The place had a nice air mattress downstairs that was very comfortable and a bed upstairs that was also very comfortable. There was plenty of space to put our things and the weather was beautiful and made even more enjoyable by the windows in the living area that allowed a nice breeze to enter the apartment.
Next time I'm in San Francisco, I will definitely be staying here if it is available!
Karina is a great host! Always ready to help. She is also very organized and everything was nice and easy. The apartment itself is amazing, quiet street near everything you might need. I will stay in this apartment when I get back to SFO.
Lovely SOMA Retreat
Just got back for a girls' weekend in San Francisco, and we felt extremely lucky to call Karina's loft home. It turned out to be just as pictured: a modern and inviting space where you could completely relax and recharge, rooftop deck included. We had a car with us, since we drove up from Los Angeles, so the garaged parking space was a huge bonus. But the loft is so centrally located (within easy walking distance to anywhere downtown), that we ended up ignoring the car until it was time to check out. Karina has put a lot of thought and care into decor--there's a beautiful black and gold canopy in the living room--and provides a truly unique and lovely place to stay.
Karina has a beautiful space in downtown SF. The location is great, the free parking is helpful and convenient, and her home is full of light. My sister and I had a relaxing time in Karina's home. We weren't looking for a crazy, just a pretty and comfortable space to catch up on sleep, take a bath, and watch loads of tv at night. This was the perfect place! Karina is a wonderful host who keeps in touch on the regular and I would definitely recommend her home!
