Interaction with Guests
We live upstairs and will be respectful of your privacy. Having lived in the Bay Area for many years, we are happy to answer your questions, orient you to the neighborhood, the city and the bay area.
Bernal Heights has been named the 2014 hottest neighborhood in the nation by Redfin, a national realty company. We are high on the north slope with views of the city. A short walk down the hill will bring you to some of our favorite spots, Precita Cafe, Hillside Supper Club, a great corner grocer and park/childrens' playground. Or walk up to Bernal Heights Park and its spectacular views. Its just a quick 15 minute walk to the Mission and 24th street with great coffee shops, taquerias and restaurants, farmers market and night life.
Easy access to bus lines to downtown & BART. We often walk to the Mission and stop at the 24th Street or Valencia Avenue shops and restaurants. It's easy to call for a car or taxi via uber. To and from the airport is generally a 15-20 minute ride with a cost of $40-$45.
Other Things to Note

The apartment is all yours! You won't be surrounded by someone's clothes or personal possessions as in other spaces where the occupant leaves for the night(s). There is a good sized closet in the bedroom as well as shelving in the hallway closet with room for your luggage and purchases. The bedroom has a 6 drawer dresser and a dressing table that makes a fine desk. We want you to be comfortable and feel at home, so don't hesitate to inquire about special needs.
We live a top a lovely hill which makes for great views, a quiet neighborhood, and speedy down hills- but please note if you are hauling a few suitcases from 24th BART it can be a 25-30 min hike with the last part uphill (or a @ $10 Uber ride)
This is a quiet neighborhood and we expect guests to be respectful. This is no smoking in the apartment or deck area. Sorry, no pets.
My husband Fred and I have lived in the bay area for over 20 years. We both work closely with organic farmers in California and abroad and we may gift you with lots of seasonal delicious fruit during your stay. We are passionate about food, art and travel and have a tiny daughter named Scout. We think our neighborhood is one of the best kept secrets in SF with its great views, parks, and quick walk to the Mission. It's quiet yet close to lots of fun stuff.
