Bernal Heights, San Francisco has been voted #1 neighborhood in the USA! This is a spacious room with bath in a lovely home with magical, park like gardens. City, Golden Gate Bridge and skyline views. Full and twin bed. Easy bus access/parking.

The Space

This is a spacious private room in a unique, colorful Bernal Heights home with plenty of street parking! The home opens onto a magical, park-like garden with many terraces where guests can enjoy views of San Francisco, watch the birds, listen to the relaxing sounds of the "WaterContraptions" or just enjoy a cup of tea or a glass of wine.

The spacious room has a full size bed and a single bed. There are two bathrooms in the house available to guests, each has a shower and one has a tub. The airy kitchen is fully equipped and available for use by guests.

There is also a nice outdoor living area/chill space with a propane heater - a nice place to hang out in the evening.

The garden is also a perfect location for a wedding or a family gathering. To book the space for an event please go to https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/791503

Bernal Heights (voted as "America's hottest neighborhood!") is lovely, safe, quiet and sunny and sits just above the vibrant Latino "Mission" neighborhood.

We are steps away from Bernal Hill Park - a great place for a walk, sunset viewing, star gazing and the best 360 degree view of San Francisco.

A fifteen minute walk will take you to Cortland Street, a lovely shopping street complete with healthy grocery market, unique gift store, yoga, massage, library, bank and art galleries. There you will find a multitude of delicious eating establishments - Japanese, Nepalese, Peruvian, Italian, Mexican, California cuisine, two good bars, excellent coffee shops and bakeries.

The Alemany Farmers Market on Saturdays and the flea market on Sundays are fun excursions, just a short hike away.

The convenient MUNI 67 bus line stops right across the street and will take you to the 24th Street BART station in five minutes. BART will take you downtown in minutes. MUNI buses connect here to all points in the city including Golden Gate Park, Fisherman's Wharf, AT&T Park, all museums and city attractions.

STREET PARKING IS REALLY EASY ON OUR STREET!

Guest Access

Guests have access to their rooms, both bathrooms, kitchen, dining area, outdoor chill space and the many terraced garden.

Interaction with Guests

We live in the home and are happy to offer sightseeing suggestions and advice. Interaction depends on the guests preference, but we greatly enjoy meeting and getting to know our guests!

  • Jeannie and Skate exceeded our expectations with this truly magical residence. When we arrived we were greeted by smiles and welcomed home. I immediately fell in love with the entire property, especially the back yard and the way it is terraced and the breathtaking views of the city. I enjoyed coffee out on the balcony daily and conversations with friends by sunset. I am not sure I have ever been so relaxed away from home. The room was comfortable with plenty of room even for three people who overpacked. The be were comfortable and I appreciated the basket of maps, tour guides, etc. Included in the information binder was a bundle of menus from local restaurants. One night when we needed a break, we ordered Chinese and it was fabulous! Please take their advice and walk the local area including Precita Park and Bernal Heights. It is hilly but worth it! I was charmed from the beginning and for the duration...everything from the beautiful scenery, to eclectic decor, to Skate playing guitar and singing, to the water art, and on and in. I will be back for sure. You cannot go wrong here. Thank you, Jeannie and Skate! I made memories with my friends there that I won't ever forget.

  • We used Jeannie and Skate's back yard for our wedding, and house some out-of-town guests in their spare bedroom. They're great hosts and took wonderful care of us. We would highly recommend them to anyone.

  • Jeannie and Skate were great hosts and had a clean home with a magical garden. We enjoyed exploring the neighborhood, eating at the cafe down the hill, having wine & cheese adventures in the garden while watching the sunset, and meeting the Chilean family that was staying in the other guest room. Prepare for possibly being around a lot of people in the house, depending on who is staying in the other room. Overall we had a great experience!

  • We enjoyed our stay at Jeannie's and Skate's typical Californian house very much. They are very kind hosts and so helpful, when you need authentic tips in San Francisco. Sitting in this awesome garden is a pleasure, we also loved the great view and the tranquility of the surrounding neighborhood. A very good place to stay in town but not beeing in the crowd. Nice and comfortable room. Thank you so much! M & B from Vienna/Austria

About
Hi, We're Jeannie and Skate and we are looking forward to meeting you! We love to host guests in our home. We want to provide our guests with privacy while also offering them travel and local recommendations based upon our over 30 years as San Franciscans. We always enjoy meeting new people and making new friends. We like spending time in our garden and with our family, listening to live music, singing karaoke, eating good food, traveling to new and exciting destinations, snorkeling, camping, and sunshine. One of our favorite things to do is to travel simply and affordably by either camping or staying in homes so that we get to really experience the culture and people of the region we are visiting. For us Airbnb is a wonderful way to travel and meet new people while still staying at home!
