About this listing
Come enjoy our large studio apartment in San Francisco's charming and convenient Bernal Heights neighborhood! You're sure to enjoy having your own cozy and private apartment with a romantic gas fireplace, wood and stone floors and artistic decor.
Once a corner store the apartment has been tastefully remodeled to make it a very comfortable living space. It consists of one very large room plus an attractive bathroom and a closet. There are separate areas for sleeping, dining, cooking, working and relaxing. The kitchenette has a fridge, two burners, a microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and filtered water on tap, as well as all the kitchenware and tableware you may need. The bed has a very comfortable new queen size mattress. It's quite romantic, but you can also sleep an additional two people on the comfortable fold down sofa. You'll have the use of wireless DSL internet and widescreen dish TV with blu ray. The apartment is completely separate from our living space so you'll have it all to yourself. It has a grand and gracious yet completely comfy feel.
We like to host visitors and we'll be happy to give you information and tips on request. You'll love our neighborhood where you'll find some of the city's sunniest weather, best affordable restaurants, great views and easy parking. Street parking is safe and generally available either right outside or on the block. The house is on a quiet residential street two blocks from Bernal Hill Park, which has spectacular views of the city and The Bay. Our electricity comes from solar panels on the roof!
Everything you need is a short walk away on Cortland Street including quality interesting and affordable restaurants, cafes, bars, groceries, shops, services, two bakeries, a bookstore, a library, even an art gallery! There's also a farmer's market nearby on Saturdays, and two lovely parks. We love our neighborhood which is so friendly and livable!
Transportation to Downtown (about 3 miles to Civic Center) or any of the San Francisco attractions is easy with frequent buses. Two minutes from the front door you can catch a MUNI bus to the nearby BART (underground) station.
