This modest yet beautiful duplex opens onto a private brick courtyard filled with Mission District Sun. Recently remodeled, it boasts lots of natural light, and hardwood floors. It sleeps four with a double bed and fold out couch on separate floors. Since it is off the street, it is serene and quiet.
The cottage is accessed via a path from the street so it is a private and quiet oasis, like your own getaway in the heart of the city. Easy street parking and access to public transportation make it an ideal spot to enjoy what the city has to offer. It is an easy 15 minute drive from SFO.
In addition, the Garden Cottage is a short walk from the world-class restaurants and cafes of Mission and Valencia Steets as well as 24th Street. Precita Park, directly across the street, is great for picnics and just enjoying the Bernal Heights neighborhood, one of the city's undiscovered gems. There is plenty of easy street parking if you are driving, but it's also just blocks from public transportation.
Patio & outdoor furniture, luggage storage, laundry facilities.
We enjoy providing our garden cottage to travelers of all sorts. We have put a lot of love into it over the years (it's in great shape), so we only ask that our guests keep it in good shape and respect our neighbors.
We would like to note that check out is noon, for we virtually always have another guest coming in the afternoon. We can store bags for you though.
I book this listing for my boss and his son for a SF getaway and it was perfect. The place was adorable, clean, bright and so close to the coolest neighborhood in SF, Mission!
My boss and his son really enjoyed their stay and highly recommend it to others.
Peter was very quick to respond to all my questions. It was a super easy, enjoyable experience.
The garden cottage was great and just as advertised. A quiet, private place in a lovely neighborhood.
This is a super place to stay for your visit in SF. Very convenient central location, sweet neighborhood with park across the street, very quiet situation. Lovely garden setting; very neat and clean. Listing is completely accurate. Hosts were friendly and helpful. Peter's suggestion to climb the Bernal Heights hill was great advice - do it!
The Garden Cottage in the Bernal Heights are of SF was terrific. Peter, our host, was there to greet us and help us with anything we may have needed. The cottage was equipped with everything we needed. Parking was easy, the neighborhood was safe, quaint and within walking distance of a great park, an special neighborhood market and some cafes. We will definitely look this place up again when we return to San Francisco. Thank you, Peter!
Loved it. Quiet and private with sweet yard which we used because weather was lovely and warm. Clean and well maintained. Owners let us just be! They live in main house. We were able to do laundry and we had a nice kitchen. Only other addition would have been a microwave but we used kettle to make tea and coffee. We will hope to stay there again. It is in such a great location with little park, cafe, and even a market at other end of street. Also easy ride to airport , did it in 15 minutes at night, 20 during heavy day traffic. A really fabulous place to stay
The cottage is great. It's very clean, well-maintained, comfortably furnished, well-stocked, quiet. And the gardens are beautifully kept. Peter was not only very accommodating; he was the perfect balance of responsive and respectful of privacy. I highly recommend this great space, setting, and neighbourhood.

I'm Peter. I'm a carpenter/contractor living in SF since '92. When I'm not building things, I like to read, climb, ride and swim in SF Bay. I also like to travel everywhere for as long as I can.
