Interaction with Guests
We live in the home and are happy to offer sightseeing suggestions and advice.
Interaction depends on the guests preference, but we greatly enjoy meeting and getting to know our guests!
Bernal Heights was voted America's #1 neighborhood! It sits just above the Mission District, our vibrant Latino neighborhood.
It has the best weather in San Francisco. It has the best views. It has a safe, friendly village feel to it.
A fifteen minute walk will take you to Cortland Street, a lovely shopping street complete with healthy grocery market, unique gift store, yoga, massage, library, bank and art galleries. There you will find a multitude of delicious eating establishments - Japanese, Nepalese, Peruvian, Italian, Mexican, California cuisine, excellent coffee shops and bakeries.
Right outside our door is Bernal Hill, a beautiful piece of parkland that affords a 360º view of San Francisco. Come here for sunrise, sunset or for star gazing!
Don't miss our Alemany Market which becomes a fabulous Farmers Market on Saturdays and a Flea Market on Sundays.
The convenient MUNI 67 bus line stops right across the street and will take you to the 24th Street BART station in five minutes.
BART will take you downtown in minutes.
MUNI buses connect here to all points in the city including Golden Gate Park, Fisherman's Wharf, AT&T Park, all museums and city attractions.
STREET PARKING IS REALLY EASY AND FREE ON OUR STREET! Just be sure to read the street cleaning signs.
From SFO the least expensive option is a BART/MUNI ride which takes about 50 mins. A taxi/rental car will take about 20 mins.

Your room "The Saffron Sanctuary" looks out onto the Magical Garden and breathtaking views of San Francisco
Though we expected a great experience, our stay with Jeannie and Skate far surpassed our expectations. They were excellent hosts, providing us with a full tour of their beautiful home and breathtaking garden that you really have to experience to understand.
The Blue Room was warm and pretty, the beds were comfortable and the bathroom was neat and clean. Jeannie and Skate also offered tea and coffee, and a variety other amenities that really added to the whole experience.
My only regret was not having the time to talk more with our gracious hosts and spend more time in their amazing garden, just listening to music and taking in the atmosphere.
I'll definitely be looking for another room with Jeannie and Skate the next time I am in San Francisco.
We had a great stay with Jeannie and Skate. The house was big and the outdoors area was even bigger. Lots of room in the backyard to enjoy the sun setting over San Francisco. They also had three lovely cats we got to spend time with. Both Jeannie and Skate provided us with lots of good tips about activities and how to get around in the area. Would recommend anyone to stay here who wants a nice quiet retreat. Also quite close to good restaurants in the Mission district.
Jeannie and Skate are awesome! They welcomed us at the door and showed us their beautiful home - the city and bridge views from the garden really are spectacular! The room was exactly as described. The nearby Mission neighborhood (walkable - but the walk back up the hill is a workout) was fascinating. For a great restaurant the Precita Park Cafe at the bottom of the hill is fantastic. Overall, highly recommended!
Beautiful house and great location. It was a lovely stay and definitely enhanced my vacation.
I work at Airbnb and booked Jeannie and Skate's place for a special guest of ours. I am SO happy I did. Not only are Jeannie and Skate incredibly gracious hosts (not to mention funny and talented), but their home and garden are absolutely gorgeous. It's hard to believe a place like this even exits in the city.
Magical only begins to describe it.... I can't wait to book again in the future!
Jeannie and Skate are welcoming and warm and their home is a wonderland of eclectic art. We especially enjoyed the amazing garden and the quick hike up to Bernal Heights with it's incredible views and friendly people walking their dogs. Our room was comfortable and private and we met some interesting fellow travelers as well. Thank you Jeannie and Skate!
It was simply amazing.
Jeannie and Skate are wonderful hosts with a beautiful home. They have a really cool terraced backyard with many nooks to have breakfast or enjoy a drink and watch over SF. I can rave about this backyard forever. It's so gorgeous!
They live right next to a bus stop so it's really easy to get around SF without having to drive. A great amenity since SF parking is notoriously hard to find.
The wonderful hosts, gorgeous backyard, friendly cats and close transportation make this the best spot for exploring SF. I would love to visit again.

About the Host, Jeannie And Skate
Hi, We're Jeannie and Skate and we are looking forward to meeting you!
We love to host guests in our home. We want to provide our guests with privacy while also offering them travel and local recommendations based upon our over 30 years as San Franciscans. We always enjoy meeting new people and making new friends.
We like spending time in our garden and with our family, listening to live music, singing karaoke, eating good food, traveling to new and exciting destinations, snorkeling, camping, and sunshine.
One of our favorite things to do is to travel simply and affordably by either camping or staying in homes so that we get to really experience the culture and people of the region we are visiting.
For us Airbnb is a wonderful way to travel and meet new people while still staying at home!
