About this listing
Our garden studio is so peaceful you'll be sure to wake feeling refreshed. Designer-owners have meticulously detailed a modern cozy feel. Conveniently located just 1.5 blocks from the Cortland Avenue amenities. The studio is on it's own level giving it a private feel. Parking is available.
It's a huge space. You will feel like you're in a private apartment; although it is not a separate unit of the building the space is on a separate floor than our living space and feels very private; almost like a studio without a full kitchen. We offer a Nespresso machine, tea kettle, refrigerator, microwave and toaster. We leave breakfast for you in the room so you can enjoy when you like. We recommend enjoy breakfast and lounging in the sunny garden. You will also be within close walking distance of Cortland Ave. the core shopping/ eating area of Bernal Heights. Your room also includes a private bathroom that feels like a spa. The garden is incredibly relaxing, and the parking is quite spacious. We think you will enjoy!
It's not a private entry but you will feel very separated and can fully enjoy your privacy.
Interaction with Guests
As much as desired. We are home and available for advice on the area. We are local (currently having resided in SF for 13 years) so we can offer our favorite places to explore, eat, and take in the city. If you prefer privacy, you will hardly notice us as we live just upstairs and only interact with guests when they look for it.
Bernal Heights is great for families and those who want to enjoy a peaceful yet fun side of San Francisco. We're close enough to the fun to be able to enjoy leaving the car at home and walking/ taking public transit around yet we live in a quite area where you can sit in the park or garden and sometimes forget than your in a city at all. Bernal is also famous for being one of the sunnier/ less foggy areas of the city.
A quick but steep walk from the house will take you to one of the most spectacular views of the city from the top of Bernal Peak. We're also only 1.5 blocks from the restaurants, shops, and public transportation on Cortland. We can recommend our favorite bakery and dinner spots nearby. We are also very close to the Alemany Farmer's Market. It's the oldest market in California and is open every Saturday morning.
Other Things to Note
We are family-friendly and Bernal Heights is the perfect place for families. Although we only allow 2 adults, we will allow additional guests if you have children. The room is quite large and easily accommodates room for a child. We offer a pack'n'play for tiny guests and we also have a little one of our own. Our Madeleine was born in July 2013. She is well behaved and we've never had guests complain of her noise.
San Francisco is an amazing city and we really do hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Oh, and feel free to help yourself to the pears and lemons growing in the garden. Although the pears only ripe in the fall; lemons are available year round and the neighbors trees are often full of delicious goodies as well.
Respectfully quite later in the night like after 10ish. We do have a family and like to make sure we can sleep.
The space is modern, light and spacious and a relaxing and comfortable place to stay. Nichole and Julian and Madeline are very good hosts and I hope I can stay there again.
We had a great stay with Nichole and Julien! The neighborhood was perfect- quiet yet close to everything. Nichole and Julien were extremely welcoming. They provided fresh bagels, fruit and coffee for us each day. Their place was very clean and exactly as described. We even shared a few bottles of wine with them one evening and they are both such amazing people! I would highly recommend their place and we hope to be back.
It was really great. The room is the same as the picture. Location and parking were good either. The hosts were kind and helpful to us. One minor thing to consider is the soundproof between room was not good. But, the whole house was quiet during the night.
Check in was smooth, we were an hr late due to traffic and the host was able to accommodate. The space is just as pictured and was quaint and clean. The hosts were very helpful and offered to provide suggestions to local areas. The breakfast items provided and garage parking were great as well!
This is a family residence and we didn't consider the fact that they have a young child at home before booking--- aside from early wakeups due to noise above, no major noise issues.
This was our second stay and it was as comfortable, efficient and well managed as before. Our host was able to accommodate a last minute change in schedule and responded promptly to our query. The room was clean and quiet and we continue to be appreciative of the generous breakfast makings provided. We hope to return in the fall.
The apartment was perfect. It was very clean and nicely decorated. It had a lovely backyard. Nichole and Julien were vey nice and gave good recommendations. They even stocked the fridge with juice, yogurt, fresh raspberries, and more. The neighborhood was safe and the apartment was around the corner from great neighborhood restaurants and shops. It was easy to park. Really nice! Thanks!
For our first time in the US, I found a sweet and modern house with very nice hosts, who make us feel confortable at any time. Julien provides my friend and I with precious advices to visit beautiful San Francisco. I spent two weeks living like a real San Franciscan. Their neighborhood is a calm and friendly one with the typical cool atmosphere of the city. We got all accommodations for us to enjoy our stay with a parking, a nice breakfast, washing machine and a beautiful terrasse with gorgeous lemons. Our time in SF was a great and memorable one. Thank you again for having us. Take care all of you!
