Lovely afternoon sun streams through the windows of this peaceful room, in a comfortable, well kept home. The comment we get the most about this room from our guests is, "I slept like a baby."
Come stay in the charming neighborhood of Bernal Heights, within walking distance of the Mission District and only 10 minutes away from downtown. From our deck, you will see the famous "Hill," which offers a panoramic view of the entire city and is a 6 minutes walk from our home.
You will have unlimited free off-street parking (no permit required) and easy access to public transportation.
Our home is a wonderful 2 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, well-maintained Edwardian, on a safe and quiet street. Our home has a wonderful healing and spiritual vibration. We take pride in its calm and peaceful energy.
We have a deck over looking the bay, a large kitchen with a sunny nook, and a living room with a working fireplace.
Your room is furnished with an extra thick, large, and very comfortable full size bed. It faces west so it catches the wonderful and yummy afternoon sun. There is new Acacia hardwood floors, a large walk-in closet and custom made diamond light bay windows typical of Edwardian homes.
Your private bathroom is located next to your bedroom.
Our neighborhood is full of cafes, restaurants, yoga studios, a bookstore, library, a wine bar, parks, and pleasant hikes with sweeping views. There is permit-free off street parking available; just be mindful of street cleaning signs to avoid parking tickets.
We are 2 to 3 blocks away from major bus lines. You can also take a 7-minute bus ride to the train station (BART) or walk just 15 minutes and explore the neighborhoods of Bernal.
We are a lesbian couple and welcome queer and straight folks from everywhere! :-)!
You will have access to the entire kitchen, with full amenities, the deck and the living room. Kitchen hours are 8 to 11am and again in the evening, 7-10pm. There is a dedicated shelf in the refrigerator for you to store your food and counter space for your dry goods.
There is also an extra bathroom downstairs you can access (but not to shower)
We also have a guidebook with information about transportation, local sites, and menus.
Interaction with Guests
We interact with guests in an easy and organic way that feels appropriate to each person and situation. We offer plenty of privacy since this bedroom is upstairs and we're always downstairs on the main level. And sometimes we travel and may be away while you are here.
We love our neighborhood! We have many charming restaurants, cafes, bakeries, bars, parks and short trails on Bernal Hill, which has a sweeping 360 degree view of our city.
There are two major bus lines within 2 to 4 blocks from our home, including the BART train lines. We are also 12 minutes away from the airport and next to two major freeway systems (280/101).
Other Things to Note
We provide complimentary coffee/tea/yogurt/fruit.
We prefer non-smokers and if you are smoker, we ask that you smoke away from our home (50 feet away).
We also will not tolerate any drugs of any kind and minimal alcohol use.
Our home is also a shoe-free zone so all street shoes can be parked on the shoe rack located in the foyer when you walk in.
We suggest you bring your own slippers to use during your stay or socks.
We compost and recycle whenever possible and ask for your mindfulness with that.
If you are sharing a bathroom, we ask that you pick up after yourselves. For your convenience and peace of mind, we provide a different color towel for each guest and a separate toothbrush holder to avoid any confusion.
I am a picky person when it comes to accommodation. A 4-day stay at Marie & Nsomeka's was nothing but amazing! The house is clean and neat, reminds me of home. Most favorite part of the house is the kitchen, with incredible view and the lovely breakfast provided. They are very helpful with the "must-do" and "must-eat" places around the neighborhood and downtown. Love the house, Love them, Love the neighborhood, Love San Francisco :D 3 Thank you Marie and Nsomeka for the wonderful hospitality.
Couldn't have felt more welcome! A calm
and beautiful place--just spotless--and such
a lovely old building. We were very very comfortable and would love to stay there again.
We had an excellent stay with Marie and Nsomeka. They were generous, gracious hosts who made us feel extremely welcome in their very beautiful home. The location is fantastic, well situated for public transport both downtown and to the airport. The immediate location is also excellent, lots of good restaurants and cafes nearby. We would certainly stay there again.
The reservation was canceled 7 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Marie and Nsomeka are lovely hosts. The house was clean and comfortable. They set the table for breakfast every morning and provided coffee and toast and cereal. They are both very easy to get along with.
This was my first experience with Airbnb and it couldn't have been better. Marie and Nsomeka were so welcoming, kind and generous! Their house has a very peaceful and accepting spirit. They made every effort to help orient me and make me feel at home in the city! I would definitely stay again if I am back in the city!
Marie and Nsomeka were delightful hosts – among the best ever – and their place is superb! We’d always wanted to explore Bernal Heights more and this gave us the perfect chance to do so. Their home really is an urban oasis, complete with sunny deck and incense. Our stay could not have been more pleasant and smooth. Marie and Nsomeka are cheery, kind, full of good ideas and information, and basically a lot of fun. We’ll definitely recommend to others and are glad to have made a couple of new friends too! :)
