Light, spacious 1 bedroom Garden Apartment in the heart of the sunny Bernal Heights neighborhood in San Francisco. It is blocks away from restaurants, shops, public transportation. It has a nice living area, private bath, separate bedroom, fully functional kitchen, and access
Nice living area, breakfast area. The mattress is a Simmons Beauty Rest.
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 Glen Park Station, in San Francisco ($8). Then take the #23 Monterey bus ($2) right at the corner of Diamond
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.
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.
The place was great for me and my friend. Everything was great, Pearl was really helpful and spent a significant amount of time explaining the city to us and also helped us out by letting us borrow her public transport cards.
Place was clean and the garden was pretty cool but we didn't use much because we where out most of the time.
It's just a little bit far from the main busses but if you don't mind walking 10min that is not issue at all.
We had a very pleasant stay at Pearls apartment which was a great base to discover the city. We loved the neighbourhood and Cortland Street and felt like arriving at home in the evening. The apartment offered everything we needed (even a high chair for our baby!) and Pearl was a very nice host. Merci!
A really nice space! Pearl was very helpful and accommodating, and everything in the apartment was really well-thought out. A nice, quiet neighborhood too, with plenty of stores and restaurants within walking distance, as well as easy access to public transportation and the rest of the city. Definitely recommended!
Pearl was welcoming and helpful. The accommodations were lovely. Site was perfect for us, with family nearby.
Pearl is a really good host she has everything you need on the kitchen, bath and to travel around the city. She left a milk bottle and some essensial ingredients to cook also Coffee. Pearl Enough towels, shampoo and soap. The apartment is confortable, nice and clean, also with a nice little patio. The neighborhood is good located and nice looking. 15 min to the airport and 25 downtown. Is 2 blocks from a commercial street where you find grocery, restaurants and more. There is also a hill few blocks away (recomended by Pearl) where you can see 3 bridges at the same time, awesome. Mission street is also walking distance, where is a Safeway, drugstore and public transportation.
Totally recomended. Thanks Peral
Pearl's place was exactly as described and pictured. She was a gracious and helpful host. The sunny kitchen looking out on the garden was a spacious and cheerful space. She allowed me to check in early by going out of her way to get me the keys. I will definitely look forward to staying here again. Thank you, Pearl!
Pearl was a very helpful and courteous host. The apartment was also great - comfortable and in a good location. Would definitely recommend.
