The space

Located in the vibrant Bernal Heights neighborhood I'm offering a double bedroom with private bathroom on its own floor in a turn of the last century house. Use of the shared kitchen and adjoining dining area is welcome. The private bathroom is new with a tub and shower.

The house is on a quite street just steps away from the amenities of Cortland Avenue.
Cortland Ave. is a tree lined street has everything one might need . There are excellent restaurants, gourmet bakeries, cafes and bars with outdoor patios, a book store, gift shops, banks, a wine shop, a library and playground just to name a few.

The 24 Divisadero bus line passes along Cortland. This line is a great way to see the city. It passes through the heart of town hitting many major points of interest and connects to everything. It passes through to the Mission, Noe Valley, the Castro, the Height, the Western Addition, up and over Pacific Heights and down to the bay and the Marina Green. Glorious! A great resource to the tourist on a budget.

The house has wireless internet connection. On street parking is easy.

It was very nice staying at Ponge's place. He is very friendly and helpfull, the private room with bathroom is very clean and with an Uber you can get downtown San Francisco within 20 minutes. For a lower budget, this is perfect.

Ponge was very hospitable, we loved our stay with him. We felt very safe in the area and could easily walk to several restaurants. We used Uber to get to the tourist places, which is pretty cheap if you pool. We would most definitely stay here again :)

Ponge's location was central to where my daughter lives and I could walk to her apartment easily. Even though the house is close to Cortland where there are plenty of shops and restaurants, the house sits in a very quite neighborhood. I didn't use public transportation but I know there is a BART station that is walkable and bus routes nearby. I would stay here again.

We stayed with Ponge for over a week and we really enjoyed our stay. You get a lot of privacy as basically all basement (with windows) is yours - that includes little hallway with drawers, double bedroom with study desk and comfortable chair - as well as massive press for your clothes. Bedroom is spacious enough for 2 people. Then there is your bathroom which is just for you. Ponge also has washing machine and dryer which is super handy if you are staying for longer. Internet connection in the bedroom is excellent and very reliable (Do not remember exact speed but defo over 10 Mbps). There are plenty of great restaurants really close to the house (5-10 min walk) as well as grocery shops and breakfast places. We loved Italian - VinoRosso and Peruvian restaurant. There is also Sushi and few others. Bus is just around the corner. Pongie was one of the nicest hosts we have met on the road - and we stayed in over 40 AirBnb accommodations. We even managed to have dinner twice. Really wonderful experience.

Ponge was an amazing and very welcoming host. He made us feel like home from the moment we walked in. He had a lot of good suggestions for the area and always willing to answer our questions. You get the basement basically to yourself which gives you a lot of privacy. Ponge gave us towels, soap and everything else we could have needed. He lives in a very nice and safe part of the city. We had a great time and would look him up again should we come back to San Francisco

Ponge’s accommodations were very clean and tidy. The location was great. Walking distance to Mission District and transportation was easily accessible. The back patio was very nice to use. Ponge was very friendly and helpful with his suggestions of where to travel and what to do while in SF. I would recommend staying here.

Ponge is a lovely host. He helped us to wash our clothes in the washing machine and loved to hear our stories of the day. He lives alone in his house, which is 15 minutes away from the sightseeing objects of San Francisco with an Uber. The room is a little bit dark, but the bathroom is new and comfortable.

My family is originally from India but I grew up in San Francisco. I enjoy sports and cooking. I’m proud of my hometown and I enjoy sharing it with other people.

My daughter has gone off to college leaving me with a quite house and spare bedroom. Since then I have been hosting foreign exchange students from around the world. I though it was time to try air bnb too.
