About This Listing
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.
Loads of space for your clothing. In the background is the staircase upstairs. This bedroom is on it's own floor. No noise!
Ponge is a really nice guy. He made us feel at ease as soon as we arrived. He let us use his kitchen (with oven, microwave, gas hobs) and terrace (with a barbecue). We also watched baseball matches with him (he is a huge fan of Giants), and he kindly explained us the rules of this sport.
The room and the bathroom are as described on the website. Ponge let us clean towels and soap.
The neighborhood is calm and well served by public transport. There are shops near Ponge's.
As he is nice and has a huge experience of Airbnb, Ponge is a fantastic host. We definitely recommand him. We really felt welcome in his home and enjoyed our stay in San Francisco.
Ponge est très sympa. Il nous a mis très à l'aise dès notre arrivée. Nous pouvions utiliser sa cuisine, très bien équipée et sa terrasse qui dispose d'un barbecue. Nous avons également regardé ensemble des matches de baseball (Ponge est un inconditionnel des Giants) et nous avons discuté ensemble de choses et d'autres.
La chambre et la salle de bain sont telles que décrites dans l'annonce. Nous avions à notre disposition des serviettes propres et des produits d'hygiène.
Le quartier est calme et bien desservi par les transports en commun. Il y a des magasins pour faire les courses à deux minutes à pieds.
Sa gentillesse et sa grande expérience sur Airbnb font de Ponge un hôte fantastique. Nous nous sommes vraiment sentis les bienvenus chez lui et avons passé un agréable séjour à San Francisco.
Ponge est un hôte parfait. Il est venu nous rencontrer à la station de métro pour nous montrer le chemin de sa maison. Il nous a tout de suite mis à l'aise, présenté le voisinage, la maison... Il a été très disponible et amical. Toute la maison correspondait parfaitement aux photos. La chambre et la salle de bain étaient très propres. Nous avons vraiment aimé séjourner chez lui et nous y retournerons sans hésiter !
Nuestra estancia en la casa de Ponge fue grandiosa, la ubicación está muy bien, es una zona donde hay restaurantes y comercios a unos pasos. Está a una distancia cercana al centro y a otras zonas importantes como Mission y Castro. El cuarto y el baño estaban muy limpios, Ponge limpiaba diariamente el baño. Cuenta con calefacción, y hay mucha privacidad en el cuarto. La cocina está equipada y no le falta nada para cocinar.
Ponge fue un excelente anfitrión, nos hizo de cenar el primer día que llegamos del aeropuerto y estuvo al pendiente para cualquier cosa que necesitáramos. Él lleva casi tres años con airbnb y sabe realmente atender a los huéspedes.
Mi novia y yo recomendamos ampliamente esta estancia.
Ponge was very welcoming and accomodating. He is warm and caring and provided us with useful tips. The place is well located and clean. We would most definetly rent Ponge ´s place again.
We stayed at Ponge's house for 3 months and really loved it! The basement apartment gives you a lot of privacy, if you want, but we really loved to hang out with Ponge, have a joint beer or dinner. He is such a nice person and we really became friends now. There is also a nice balcony to the backyard which is nice to relax. As I was working on a research project I often did home office there or in the nice living room. Living together with Ponge was totally harmonic and we really felt at home. We also appreciated the nice, calm and totally save neighborhood. Bernal heights has a lot of nice tiny restaurants. In general, we were totally happy with the location, as there is good bus connection to the Mission district and to Noe Valley, Castro and Divisadero, which are all wonderful areas to hang out. The connection to downtown is also quite easy with the BART. Whenever we come back Ponge's place would be our first choice!
Abbiamo trascorso due mesi insieme a Ponge, un lungo periodo dove ci siamo sentiti come a casa. La stanza era perfetta, la sistemazione è molto accogliente e puoi avere tutta la privacy che vuoi. L'appartamento si trova in un quartiere fantastico e molto tranquillo, a pochi passi trovi buonissimi caffe e ristoranti e un market ben fornito. I mezzi pubblici sono praticamente sotto casa.
Ponge è un host strepitoso..! Molto disponibile, divertente, pronto ad aiutarti e a darti consigli su come muoverti e cosa fare in città, se sarete fortunati e trascorrerete più tempo i casa magari vi farà assaggiare anche il suo fantastico barbecue...
Per quanto ci riguarda, quando torneremo nella Bay Area, Ponge sarà la prima persona che contatteremo..!!!
