Interaction with guests

I live on the premises and operate a small architectural firm out of my lower level space. I love to meet new people and love to share my knowledge of 33 years living in San Francisco.

The neighborhood

Bernal Heights is a really a small town smack dab in the middle of a big city. We're located within a block of three major transit lines and just steps from shops and restaurants on Mission's "La Lingua" district and Cortland Street shopping district.

Getting around

I'm close to the J-Church (train), the 14, 28 and 49 Muni line (bus) and 6 blocks from 24th Street BART.

Other things to note

The bathroom is not directly accessed from the bedroom.
Just added! Fire pit in the garden!

The stay was great, the room comfortable and, with the absence of the host, quiet . Be aware, there's no TVs in the house.

Response from Gregg:
There actually is a TV in the kitchen, but you'd need a little help to get on the content you desired. I've found only twice in two years did anyone ask for a TV, therefore, I've decided not to clutter an already small bedroom with equipment rarely if ever used. Thanks for the feedback though :)

Response from Gregg:
Hi Yumi, I hope I'm not crossing a line but I think you meant this for my public review so I took the liberty to post it here. Thank you for both wonderful reviews. "We had a wonderful stay in Gregg's beautiful home. We chose his place since we were visiting our family who lives in the same neighborhood. His house is just so beautiful and clean. His communication with us was excellent. It is very close to good stores and restaurants. Very easy to get to anywhere with public transportation. Thank you for a wonderful accommodation. Yumi and John

Gregg deserves his superhost status - great advice on what to do and generally brilliant company! If/when we come back to San Francisco we'll be knocking at his door again for sure. Gregg has a lovely house in a lovely area all in all. Him and his friends are a good laugh too - great company!

I had a great time staying at Gregg's place, This was a genuine Airbnb experience, the way it was meant to be: staying in a local's house, enjoying true hospitality. I really felt privileged to be able to benefit from Gregg's infinite knowledge about the wonderful city he lives in. (And to enjoy his great sense of humor ;)) And then there's Jake, the majestic cat: it was a magical moment when His Majesty finally deigned to nuzzle up to me! Bernal Heights is a great neighborhood, you will find everything you need there, restaurants and café's, a brilliant little supermarket (The Good Life) and then there is Bernall Hill, which you should really climb to enjoy spectacular views of SF. And don't feel inhibited when you spot the swing that's up there. Enjoy it - as I did! Have fun!

I should have pointed out the reading light! It's small but works really well. Oh, well, next time 3

I'm a fun loving 56 year old gay man who has lived in San Francisco for over 32 years. I have lived in this house for over 22 years. I'm single and very laid back, nonjudgmental and pretty open minded to the views of others. I expect the same in return. I'm very friendly and will always be there to lend a helping hand. I'm been told I'm quite reliable. I love design of any kind, movies and books. I love to laugh too! I'm interested in meeting others from near and far. I love to trade stories and learn how other people live and what their cities are like. I want to hear your story.
