This beautiful home is filled with light, high ceilings, sweeping views of the city, a deck which is part of the living space and extends from the living room and the master bedroom. The master bedroom has a fireplace and also sweeping views.
Free garage parking, two fireplaces (one in the bedroom!), TV, hardwood floors, full kitchen (with microwave, big stove, modern coffee maker), washer/dryer, a Brookstone music tower (plays your iPhone/iPod music for you), shower and/or tub for bathing, high speed internet access, and direct street access to the house (no stairs).
The home is located in Bernal Heights, on a lovely, quiet street one (1) walking block from Cortland, where you will find local coffee shops, restaurants, grocery stores, wine bars, butcher shops, two bakeries, a bookstore, a library, an art gallery, a play ground for your kids, a farmer's market on Saturdays, and two lovely parks. We are also an easy waking distance from various other well known neighborhoods, including the Mission District, Dolores Park, the Castro and Noe Valley.
Frequent buses allow for easy access to any of the great San Francisco attractions such as Fisherman's Warf, Chinatown, North Beach, MOMA, Yerba Buena Gardens and more. One block from the front door you can catch a MUNI bus to the nearby BART (underground) station. Freeway access to the South Bay is ideal as well.
We look forward to having you as our guests and are happy to accommodate any particular needs you may have. For example, if you would like the flat cleaned during your stay, we will have someone come in to take care of that with pricing arranged for you depending on your needs.
The guest will have access to the entire home, a deck and a garden.
Interaction with Guests
I am available to guests at any time for any concerns they may have. I ensure that on the day of their arrival the access code is provided and they find everything in order. I may never meet the guest, however, depending on the circumstances.
The neighborhood has great coffee shops, restaurants and a hill with views of the entire city all in walking distance. It is also very child friendly as there is a playground, a library, children's toy stores, Wholefoods, etc. etc. A very authentic and typical SF neighborhood as mentioned by many who have stayed at the home.
A bus line runs a block away into the Mission and BART is available from there to go downtown or wherever BART runs.
We welcome guests who are looking for a cozy and quiet home to enjoy the views of the city after a busy day out. Who can resist views, a fireplace, and a glass of wine? My favorite is the fireplace in the bedroom.
You're welcome to have friends visit, but please no parties. We also request that you not smoke in the house, and although we love animals, we cannot allow them as future guests may be allergic.
If you end up taking photos while there that you think are fab to post on Airbnb, we would welcome that. Enjoy your stay and hope to see you again.
The NordicTrack you use at your own risk.

A washer and dryer are on the premises and available for rentals that are a week or more in length.
I look forward to meeting you and to address any questions you may have. We hope you have a comfortable stay!
Helena had a gorgeous place. It was in a great location short b
Cab ride to the city. All in all a great way to spend our 5 year anniversary!
Thank you Helena! This was my first AirBnB experience and Helena was a great host. She was easy to get a hold of, friendly and went out of her way to get us into the place earlier than check in.
The flat is modern and comfortable and the view is amazing. It is a bit out of the way from downtown ($20 Uber) but worked great for us, with easy access to the HWY and about half an hour to Silicon Valley AND close enough to San Fran for the evenings.
We were very happy staying in Helena's house for this demanding trip.We felt ourselves at home.Nicely Decorated very Artistic way and furnished as well. Very convenient to reach anywhere if you have a car .if I stay in San Francisco I would like to stay again .Thanks
We had a wonderful time! Great, quiet location, very nice neighborhood and lovely views of the bay from the terrace! Walk just a block up the street and hike to the top of Bernal Heights Hill for stunning views of San Francisco. Perfect spot for a romantic get away or a small family vacation. We would go back in a heart beat and highly recommend it to anyone! Thank you, Helena, for being a gracious and accommodating host!
This was a home away from home in the city. House was warm and cozy with everything you need to make the most of your stay. The views were amazing and the bed was very comfortable. There is a master bedroom with a fire place and a second bedroom for the kids. You are provided with a garage door opener to park in the garage, but the space in front of the house was always available. 1.5 blocks from the house was choices for coffee, breakfast, pizza, convenience stores, and a perfect little health food grocery store. After paying online you are provide a code to access the home as soon as you arrive. No checking in or out, paying for parking, or hotel tax. There was absolutely no noise at night and other than a peaceful wind chime singing you to sleep. We will definitely be back soon.
Helena's home was lovely. We had everything we needed. It was a great very walkable location, convenient to lots of different amenities. The few is spectacular!
We live in San Francisco and work a little south of the city. Biking is a favorite, scuba diving a passion, triathlons a past obsession (Ironman Canada 2004 everyone! :)) followed by good food, and hanging out with good friends. But nothing comes close to the love I have for my little boy. He is the Apple!
But we love just about everything about this city and hope you will too!
