About this listing
Lovely afternoon sun streams through the windows of this peaceful room with a queen size bed, in our 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.
Your room is furnished with a very comfortable queen 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 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.
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
We prefer non-smokers and if you are smoker, we ask that you smoke away from our home (25 feet away). No 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.
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.

Me and my wife stayed there for 4 days and loved it so much. The room was beautiful, clean, comfortable and with a lot of space. Feels like in a very good hotel. The host were very kind and communication before arrival was easy and they gave a lot of valuable information about San Francisco. It was easy to find free parking on the street close to the house and location was close to nice restaurants and not too fare from downtown and other parts of SF. I would definitely want to stay there again if I go back to SF.
We had a lovely stay--our first Airbnb experience--in this bright and beautiful home with our warm hostess Nsomeka (Marie was away). Andy notes--loved that thick raisin toast! Carrying away some of her kindness as we drive down the highway!
This was our second stay in Marie&Nsomeka's house. This time we were with our rental car, only on the street cleaning day we could not easily find a place to park our car but the other day ,thanks to Nsomeka, we parked just in front of the house. Again we had a perfect communication to get the keys when we arrived and also when we left. We really liked the city, their house and our room.
The house and the room were great,spacious and comfortable so that we felt welcome and had a place to rest after all the sightseeing!They even prepared a guidebook which helped to get an overview and get around pretty well!When we met Marie and Nsomeka they were very nice and great to chat with!
Bernal Heights is a nice area and if you take a little walk you find lovely shops,restaurants and cafes in Cortland Street!Just up the hill you have a great view above San Francisco!
If you take the BART/Metro you will reach downtown pretty quick!
We are a young couple and we really liked Marie&Nsomeka's house. It was exactly the same as described in the website. The guestbook was very helpful for our stay in SF. We did not have the opportunity to spend some time with our hosts but one morning Marie helped us to discover the city by the map and for transportation. The complimentary water and breakfast was very well thoughtful. I really liked the little notes around the house for some reminders :) When we arrived our hosts were not in the house but we easily reached the keys thanks to their manual in our messages. We were all the time in contact with them via Airbnb messages and did not have any problems in communication. The location was very good , in walking distance to the BART station and the Muni busses were also even closer. The bathroom was not in our room but we did not have any problems in using it, it was just next door and was quite big and was private for us. I would really recommend this nice house and our kind hosts to all.
Marie and Nsomeka are amazing! We spent 3 nights at their place which is even better than described and showed in photos. Room was fantastic, bed was super comfortable and the bathroom was spotless! We had our own key which made getting in-out of apartment super easy, and their house is very conveniently located in a very colorful and safe neighborhood. There is a bus station just down the street, so getting do different part of city (Downtown, Golden Gate etc) is very easy. Marie and Nsomeka were hospitable beyond all our expectations: gave us all kinds of different advice about public transport, places to eat, things to see, made us coffee and cinnamon raisin buns every morning...But what we liked the most about our stay with them was that positive energy, that vibe, that flowed through the house and that really made us feel like home after long day of walking through the city. We will definitely recommend them to everyone going not just to San Francisco, but California as well, and we are hoping that we will visit them again.
