We enjoyed our stay with Mike and Nic. Everything was as described and the studio was large and comfortable. Checkin and checkout was simple and easy whilst Mike was always available for any matter. Wifi was excellent and the large desk very useful. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchenette serviceable. Bernal Heights is a very nice area, with restaurants and a supermarket, with easy access to the city. The 24 bus to Castro should be a tourist treasure! This is an excellent Airbnb property.
Lovely. Very comfortable and in an excellent location. We enjoyed our stay very much!
Nice apartment with good location. Perfect for me with a car just a short drive (10 mins)to mission area and easy access to the rest of sf. The parents about 7,8 mins walk. The view at night from the hill is priceless.
We spent a week in Mike and Nic's apartment in Bernal (website hidden) is clean, comfortable, spacious and quiet.There are restaurants, grocery stores, coffee shops, bakeries, laundromats etc. less than a ten minute walk away on Cortland. We enjoyed a lovely dinner at Vega.Climb to Bernal Heights Park for amazing views of the city.We used the muni and Bart to get into the city without difficulty but it is over a 30 minute ride.Mike was accessible and helpful.
This lovely space was just perfect for my parents who visit from the east coast. It's open, light and airy and feels quite large. It also doesn't have any steps at all inside, and it's one step up from the outside- perfect for my mom, who is a little less mobile.
Mike and Nic were super helpful and available, we felt in capable, caring hands.
Very cute and roomy for 3 people. Great first time experience using Airbnb. Would definitely use Airbnb again!
Mike and Nic are incredible hosts and I would definitely recommend their studio apartment to anybody. The listing is located in a quiet, safe area which was very important to me and my partner. We even had a walk in the middle of the night once with no danger in sight. There are many great and not too expensive restaurants in the area. You can get your laundry sorted easily at "Dan's Cleaners" and if you feel like ordering food into the listing, Nic and Mike have prepared a good selection of leaflets with local offers and free delivery. The fireplace works like a charm and the bed is super comfortable! The location worked just fine for me as I prefer to have a 10 mins drive to the city centre but be sleeping at my ease. An amazing place for people who can appreciate the effort put into creating this beautiful apartment.
Life is a play so enchanting! Mike is a songwriter/ musician/ carpenter. Nic is a painter/ trash fashion designer/ musician.
We're friendly and easygoing.
Nic and I met in Italy and we love to travel to visit friends and family. We also love to see beautiful views, historic places, great museums and different cultures. We really love being outdoors in nature. Nature is divine! We're vegetarian and non-smoking. Our space in SF is listed as 'Grand and Cozy 20's Bernal Studio'. Please come check it out!
