Interaction with Guests
I can help with suggestions on restaurants, sights and itineraries. I am a long time resident of SF.
The apartment is situated 2 blocks from Cortland Ave. where you'll find a grocery store (The Good Life), restaurants (Piqueo's (Peruvian), Liberty Cafe (American), Vega's (Italian)), cafes, bakeries, and a yoga studio (Bernal Yoga). The top of Bernal, 5 blocks up, offers a panoramic view of the city and the Bay, and is an open space park.
There are several bus lines close by, and ample street parking.
To get from the airport (SFO) to here:
1) Take a taxi. This will take 20 minutes, and cost around $35.
2) Take a Shuttle. For example, Super Shuttle charges $17 one way for 1 person, and $27 one way for 2 people.
3) Take public transportation.
Take BART from SFO to 24th and Mission $(8.50), and then take the 67 Bernal Heights to Folsom and Tompkins ($2.25). Walk 4 blocks west on Tompkins, and turn left on Anderson St.
Alternatively, you can take BART to
Glen Park Station, in San Francisco ($8.25). Then take the #23 Monterey bus ($2.25) at the corner of Diamond St.
Other Things to Note
All cookware is stainless steel or ceramic. I provide tea, coffee beans, coffee grinder, olive oil, strainer, etc., all the basics you would need to make a good meal. I have some maps, and can offer a comprehensive knowledge of the city to help make your stay memorable. There is no TV.
I would prefer respectful guests, preferably over 30, who would treat this apartment as they might their own. I live upstairs, so please observe quiet time after 11 p. m. I will allow 1 dog, at $20 extra per night. There is a small dog door that leads out to the garden. Dogs must be house trained, well behaved, and must stay with their owners. No smoking in the apartment, but you may smoke outside.
From Jul 26, 2015 - Jul 27, 2016 the minimum stay is 3 nights.
Pearl war eine großartige Gastgeberin! Sie sorgte dafür, dass wir uns in S. F. Wie zu Hause fühlten - mit tollen Tipps für Shopping, Essen gehen, Clipper Cards...
Bernal Heights ist ein sehr gemütliches Viertel, mit angenehmen Bewohnern und nicht zu weit von Downtown SF entfernt. Das Appartment hat alles, inclusive eines kleinen Patios zum Relaxen und Plaudern!
My boyfriend and I stayed at Pearl's places for 4 nights. We knew right away that Pearl was going to be a great host. She took the time to show us a map of SF and gave us tips on how to navigate through the city. She even had Clipper cards ready for us to use, we just had to refill them before leaving. Her place was clean, neighborhood was quite, and safe. The bed was super comfy too! We needed an ironing board and she let us borrow hers with no issues. It was the perfect place to stay for the weekend and we'd definitely stay there again.
Pearl was such a wonderful hostess! My boyfriend and I enjoyed four nights in her garden apartment and wished we had more time. The pictures don't do justice to how spacious, sunny (even though it's garden level!), and colorful it is. Pearl was so fantastic to work with - she was responsive to messages and really accommodating to our arrival time, and even met us to give detailed information about the apartment and neighborhood. And the apartment has THE MOST comfortable bed!!
Pearl est une hôtesse de grande qualité, très aidante et chaleureuse. Le quartier est très bien, très calme avec toutes les commodités à proximité, restaurants et supermarché.
Nous recommandons vivement ce logement. L'appartement est bien équipé et vaste. Seul bémol, il est un peu sombre.
Clean, comfortable, tranquil and located in the heart of Bernal Heights. I highly recommend Pearl's apartment!
Pearl was a wonderful host! She welcomed us warmly. The apartment was well-equipped, cozy, clean and stylish. We had a great time in San Francisco and would definitly stay again there!
Our stay at Pearl's was great: the apartment is cozy and (website hidden) was very easy since the kitchen was fully-equipped. We were travelling with a toddler, so the rear garden was great for him to play in it. Pearl also provided us with a high chair, which was very helpful during meals. Regarding the neighborhood, Bernal Heights is a quiet area with nice restaurants and some little shops, perfect if you wish to spend some relaxed time in San Francisco.
