We have surveillance cameras around our common entrance and exit areas.
Smokers have a bench outside our main door.
You will need to learn our alarm system which is constantly used.
Background check required.

Cons: No personal laundry, no guests/parties allowed.

Below are a few reviews I have received from my generous, magnificent guests.

"BE WARNED! Lulu is PHENOMENAL!! Haha! She has a mother’s heart for each and every guest that she’s graciously opened her home up to. When you walk in at the end of a busy San Fran adventure, you feel at home. Also, you cannot get more secure of a home than LuLus. She runs a very tight ship to make sure everyone has the utmost feeling of tranquility. In order to maintain this, you will be expected to get on board with the house rules immediately. It sounds intimidating, but it really isn’t. Learn the codes, never have shoes on in the house, leave things just as you found them, and conserve water (admittedly was the hardest part for me lol), and you’ll have a tranquil space to call home. It’s a lovely lens that she lives life through, and I guarantee you’ll leave her home having learned some beautiful life lessons as well as having had the opportunity to rest your head in her sanctuary or a home. Love you mom! Thank you for your support and for showing me a different angle to living life."

"I have been to San Fransisco many times in Airbnb's, but this place is far and away the best stay I have ever had. I am almost tempted to not write a review so that I can keep the secret for myself. It is a beautiful home in a prime location right next to the train and in a beautiful neighborhood. The home is placed on the edge of the hill giving all the bedrooms a fantastic view. Also there is a park right outside. Lulu is the sweetest and most helpful host I have ever had. Be kind and respectful enough to follow her very reasonable house rules and you will have an amazing time. Simply cannot beat the value of this place and what you get for the price. I hope to be back soon!"

"Staying at Lulu’s was an excellent experience. She herself is a beautiful person with a very positive and refreshing personality. The area is very very nice and her home is extremely nice/clean. She gives local tips for hotspots along with a map. My time at her place was a true pleasure and I would highly recommend her place and definitely come back in the future if ever in town again."

"I came to SF as a student in software engineering trying to kickstart my career. Lulu has been my SF mom over the past four months, cooking delicious dinners, sharing our ups and downs in life, and caring for me as a person. SF is an incredibly expensive city to live in and I am glad I was able to find a place I could call home for a reasonable price in one of the nicest neighborhoods in the city. Without such a safe, quiet, and comfortable room to return to every night after school, I believe I would have been far more stressed out than I was. Lulu goes to great lengths to keep the entire house pristine so as guests, we can always enjoy a clean space. Guests from all over the world (Argentina, Germany, China, and India just to name a few) and all walks of life stop by this house and share their stories at the dinner table, which is one of my favorite parts about living at the house. I have been able to make several good friends at Lulu's house and tons more connections. My room is pretty spacious for one person, with a queen-sized bed, large desk, and big closet with lots of compartments for storing belongings in addition to hanger space. And there is still enough room for me to lay out a yoga mat and stretch! West Portal Avenue/Muni Station is a 10 minute walk away. You can find a wide variety of restaurants and shops there. The muni station has three different lines that can take you to downtown, which is quite convenient. Staying at Lulu's house is a truly wonderful experience if you are visiting SF."

"Everything that Lulu does is in a magnificent spirit of a caring and nurturing humanitarian ethos. Lulu Marco is larger than life, high spirited, extremely positive and precise in her dealings with all people and a blessing to be around....she is loved by all that know her...I give her 10 stars out of 5....Thank You for supporting her."

"My co-workers were totally jealous! They about died when they found out where I was staying, how great the location was, and the fantastic host, price, etc. I was traveling on business and needed a quiet, calm place to go back to after long days. (Also, I had to do a little more work at night as well.) The house was so clean and in a very safe neighborhood that is GORGEOUS!!! The bed was extremely comfortable. I traveled into the heart of the city door to door in about 20/25 minutes making this EXTREMELY convenient. I felt totally safe walking to the station through one of the best and most gorgeous neighborhoods in the city. There's even a little park next to the house where you can sit and look out at a fountain! I slept so well, and it was the perfect quiet place for me to come home to after very long days of work. Oh - breakfast is simple such as bread/toast. So if you're looking for a more hearty breakfast, it's just a short and quite convenient (Maybe 6 or 7 minutes tops if you're a fast walker?) walk to several great restaurants near the MUNI station. The host was AWESOME - perfect and simple directions to MUNI (short walk), very quick to respond, kind, and helped me figure out navigating the city/whether or not I should get a rental for driving in, etc. Her son met me at the house to check me in, and walked me through everything. The rules are totally not hard (just put a note in your phone for security codes), and they had perfect directions to MUNI that were very easy to follow. Do yourself a favor and stay here!"

"Lulu is the best. I wasn't sure what to expect because of how many rules there were on the Airbnb posting. But, upon reading them, I found them reasonable - especially in the context of the Airbnb being in her home dwelling. Basically, leave things as clean as you found them, respect others' privacy, and keep the house safe.

When I arrived, I was greeted immediately with a warm smile, open arms and a hug and, 'Welcome home, sweetie! I'm happy you made it safe!' Lulu is trusting, loving, friendly, caring, and also fiery when the situation calls for it. I was traveling alone which makes me feel vulnerable, and Lulu helped me feel safe with her hospitality. And! she encouraged me to take chances and actively seek what I want out of life. Just, good shit all around.

The place is clean and beautiful - the house has incredible views of San Francisco, TONS of plants and art. Lots of vibes. The neighborhood is also beautiful - just about every house there has a garden with huge succulents, weird Dr. Seuss plants, and even lemon and lime trees! There's a jasmine tree two doors down from Lulu's house that I enjoyed sniffing as I walked past every day.

I'd recommend any loved one stay there, so they could meet Lulu, who is a badass, and explore SF from a safe home base. The hype is real - you will not regret staying here."
