Our condo comfortably sleeps four with additional beds for children. There is a large kitchen, full bathroom, deck, easy street parking, large screen tv, wireless internet, and it's got loads of style, with high ceilings, a comfortable pull out couch, and a grand view from almost every room.
It is ideal for people without a car as it's 3 minutes from 6 diffierent Mission Street bus lines, 7 minutes to BART, 5 minutes walk from Mission restaurants and clubs. Street parking is easy and even better, there's no street cleaning.
Hardwood floors, comfortable queen size bed and fold out queen size couch in seperate living room, hardwood floors, plenty of sunlight, and Bernal is a great neighborhood with supermarkets and laundry 5 minutes away. It's very safe and child-friendly. We have an infant and it is well-equipped with a crib and changing table if you've got a young child.
Our place is the entire top half of a Edwardian home built in 1906. It's very spacious and comfortable. It's the house we live in so more homey than a hotel. Noise is minimal and you're welcome to sit out on the deck and look out over Twin Peaks and the back garden.
As you're so close to BART, it's 15 minutes to downtown, 30 minutes to Berkeley, and it's an easy drive to Silicon Valley.
One dog is allowed for $25 a day extra.
Even though it's right in the city it feels like a quiet oasis in the hills and the light is bright and cheerful. It's the ideal place to live like a local and at the same time be near everything you want to see.
We can negotiate stays of less than 4 days at a higher rate. Feel free to write if you have questions.
No smoking, no cats, guests are responsible for all damage and theft, $200 cleaning fee will be charged if condo is left in unusually dirty condition. Neighbors live right below so respect as far as noise is a must and large parties are not allowed. We do not allow large parties. Any questions, just ask!
Mark is a great host, he makes sure that everything is fine and answers rapidly. The flat is really nice, with a wonderful view and big. We felt well in this flat and it is also well-furnished. The neighborood is great, and we have the bus in two minutes walk. I would definitly recommend it. Thank you Mark for your kindness !
Mark's place was great for us. Very easy check in. Very quiet neighborhood and apartment. Comfortable sleeping arrangement. Good home base for exploring SF. The Bart is a few blocks away so getting downtown is not a problem. I would highly recommend Mark's place.
marks place was great fot my family and me . big and spacious.
public transport. supermarket. pharmacy. one block from the house.
san francisco is an amazing city to discover and not staying in downtown is a good idea. tou get to know much more.
couldnt meet mark but he was always online to help.
Bernal Heights is a really pleasant area to stay - far enough from the city to feel quiet and neighbourhoody, close enough to be able to bike around easily. Mark's place is conveniently close to some great restaurants and lively bars, a Safeways, a Walgreens and the J stops nearby.
Mark was very accommodating about my bicycle, and we had good communication throughout. The lack of apartment-wide heating was a drawback at this time of year: the only source of heat is a gas fire in the living room, which is probably not an issue during the summer, but makes the kitchen a chilly place to dine. In general the apartment was a little uncleanly - not to any extent that made me want to complain to Mark, but if you're sensitive to dust this might not be the place for you. There were a lof of mousetraps around, which I don't mind, but might upset some people.
Overall I had a great stay.
David and his guest were fine renters and I would recommend them.
There are heaters for the kitchen. If I had known this would be an issue I would have set them up. In the future I will make this more clear in my instructions for the condo.
There was a mouse problem in the 2 weeks proceeding the time David stayed at the condo, and the condo board hired Clark to come in and deal with the problem in an aggressive way, thus the mouse traps. The problem seems to have been solved in all the units by this point. There was also some construction near the house, which might have caused some of the dust. A cleaning company is hired before each stay.
Thanks as always for the feedback.
Great location, great view, and great host. I would definitely consider it again for my next trip to SF. Coupled w/ a rental car from a shared car service and your visit is complete. Thanks again Mark.
Beautiful place with a view, close to everything (24h Safeway, restaurants, transportation, etc.)
We enjoyed our stay, and Mark was a great host.
Great apartment, overboardingly full of Mark's life. Certainly not the empty and sterile hotel booth, but a great sunny flat in a very nice neighbourhood. Even though we didn't met him in person, we experienced Mark as a relient and caring host. Thanks Mark for hosting us.
