Parking There is also 2 hour free street parking and/or metered parking on 5th street. Please note that there is no parking available on-site. There is a parking garage on 5th and Mission for overnight parking.

HOMELESS Yes, there are homeless in SOMA (South of Market Street) as well as other parts of SF. The homeless are pretty harmless. They usually will not engage in conversation with you while you walk by. It is hard to see the homeless sometimes. It has gotten much better in the last 15 years I have lived in my home that you will be renting. Seeing homeless people in reality is a part of living or staying in SOMA and experiencing San Francisco. I do not give them money personally but I do say hello and acknowledge them with goodwill in my heart. This seems to be well received. I have had my nieces and nephews stay with me and walk to Union Square. There have been hundreds of guests with babies and children over the years without any problems. Welcome to SOMA San Francisco. It could be helpful to know that apartments on this block can sell for a million dollars, so you are in good company with well educated professionals. I welcome you into my home and have done my best to paint the scene so you can make an educated decision about your stay.

NO SMOKING This means any smoking inside the home or common areas in the building as well as leaning out the window and smoking. In the event that smoke is detected the full deposit will be withheld. Thank you!

DID YOU KNOW? Walkability rating in SOMA is 97% = Walkers Paradise. Due to the schedule for deep cleaning between each guest early check-in and late check-out is not an option for guests or bags. Check out the CUSTOM GUIDEBOOK we created with the best local spots near the studio. If you find any new gems please let me know and I will add them.

P.S. If the price seems a bit steep for such a small space, welcome to SF! But honestly, its hard to find a place in the city that is so easily accessible and convenient, car or no car. It's all about location, location, location!

Arguably the most exciting neighborhood in SF, with new restaurants and bars popping up weekly. This is the apartment you want to stay in when you come to San Francisco!

Cozy accommodation

Karina was very hospitable during our stay. She allowed our dog to come with us which very convenient and everything is within walking distance. Definitely recommend this place to others. Note: if you drive and have a car make sure to park your car in a paid spot. My girlfriend's brother had his truck broken into and had all his things inside st... Read More

San Francisco Medical Conference

Karina's SOMA Loft Studio was great. I was in town for a medical conference at Moscone Center. The studio was a couple blocks walk to convention center. Very clean, lots of room. Karina was a great host....made my stay very comfortable. If visiting San Francisco again I'd stay here without question.

Disappointing experience

If you want to feel overlooked and ripped off, then stay here. I booked this apartment 2 months in advance, to stay with my parents during our visit to San Francisco. The owner was originally very responsive to my emails. However, when I sent her an email one week prior to check everything was in order before we arrived, I never had a response. Whe... Read More

Karina was a good host, and studio was large enough for a couple. Location convenient to BART and Muni Bus, as well as nearby restaurants.
