Location Location Location~ Our home is close to the Mission, Lower Haight, and 2.5 blocks from the Castro theater. The underground is 3 blocks away, with a street car even closer. The room is small and cosy, but a great price for one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the US! Please fill out your profile if you are interested~and make sure to arrange a time to meet prior to your arrival, I lead a busy lifestyle, work full time, and wouldn't want to miss anyone! Check in is at 5 and we are 37 steps up from street level. Restaurants are plentiful and beautiful Dolores Park is quite close.

As much as we love bikes, and we do, we don't have space for storage. If you rent one please return it at the end of the day or lock up on the street at your own risk. Please ask if you would like to have a friend for a short visit.
  • I felt immediately 100% comfortable in the house, and Brenda is very open, kind and welcoming. It's a small room with a little bed, but I was at ease using the kitchen, lounge, etc, and Brenda is good company :)

  • Brenda, Thank you for my wonderful stay in my old neighborhood. I failed to mention bc we started talking about all sorts of things, but I used to live right on dorland st and it brought me back to such happiness. Give boo and moomoo kisses, and lmk when you're in ny! <3 C

  • Seriously-- such a fabulous experience. Amazing location and the room was great. Brenda was a warm and charming hostess, along with the fun Boo! Definitely recommended.

  • Brenda was a great hostess, really helpful with directions and good restaurants. Her place is gorgeous, the kitchen is a great spot to rest after a long walk in SF. The neighborhood is vibrant and full of good restaurants. I recommend staying in her home !

  • Really wonderful experience in everyway - room and flat are comfortable with great style and Brenda is a kind, thoughtful and gracious host. Cant recommend it highly enough.

  • The location was perfect, very close to the Mission and Delores Park, and the room was just right for me. Brenda was a great host; very hospitable and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to a single traveler.

  • Brenda was the perfect host and her apartment was incredibly clean and pleasant. If you are a first time user or have any skepticism on doing Air BnB, this is the spot to give it a go.

  • I have been for a week in the home of Brenda. the house is beautiful, with attention to every detail, clean. It is the home of my dreams! It is located in a safe neighborhood, with stylish bars and cafes where you can eat very well. Brenda has been very kind, gave me a lot of advice. It's a really smart people and refined as his home. I recommend to everyone this house! Thank you so much Brenda

    Bernal Heights is a very popular neighborhood. It's interesting, safe, convenient, beautiful, quiet. The best place to live in SF!
  • Mike hat uns sehr geholfen und gute Ratschläge gegeben. Das Quartier ist sehr geräumig. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

  • Wir haben den Aufenthalt im Appartement von Nik und Mike sehr genossen. Es ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und das Haus hat eine sehr gute Lage, ruhig, nicht weit zum Zentrum (downtown) zu fahren, es gibt Supermärkte und viele Gaststätten in der Nähe. Es gab ein paar kleine leckere kulinarische Willkommensgrüße. Wir haben die Beiden erst bei unserem zweiten Aufenhalt kennengelernt und erlebten Sie als sehr freundlich, unaufdringlich und charmant. Einziger (kleiner) Kritikpunkt wäre vielleicht die Kücheneinrichtung, die allenfalls zum Aufwärmen von Fertiggerichten geeignet ist, aber nicht zum richtigen Kochen (was wir eigentlich wollten). Mit etwas Mühe gelang es uns immerhin Nudeln mit Sauce herzustellen, (aber vielleicht war da unser Anspruch zu hoch). Trotzdem volle Punktzahl, weil ansonsten unbedingt weiterzuempfehlen, wenn man sich mit damit arrangiert! Ich würde selbst auch wieder einen Aufenthalt dort buchen.

  • Komonication mit mike war sehr gut Die wohnung und die lage war super Danke mike & nic und alis Gerne wider

  • A perfect hideaway in the heart of Bernal Heights. My partner and I loved this locale and appreciated the proximity to bus lines, the impeccable cleanliness of the apartment and the warm interior decorating. From the moment we walked in the door we felt as though we were staying at a friend's house. Just lovely.

  • We had a great stay for our first time in San Francisco. The space was very clean and well kept. Mike and Nic were great hosts that responded quickly to our messages. We would definitely stay here again!

  • Mon séjour a été très agréable ! Communication facile avec l'hôte, bien que je ne l'ai jamais rencontré. Il s'est assuré que tout allait bien durant mon séjour, ce qui fut bien apprécié. Appartement avec beaucoup de cachet ! Comme mentionné auparavant par une autre personne, il y a parfois une odeur d'humidité dans le logement, mais en ouvrant un peu une fenêtre tout est réglé ! Le quartier, très tranquille, est un peu loin du centre mais il gagne à être découvert. Il y a du transport disponible à proximité (bus). Fortes côtes : attention à ceux qui, comme moi, aiment se déplacer à pied pour visiter une ville ! Il y a un studio de musique à côté du logement : j'ai entendu de la musique à quelques occasions mais cela n'a jamais duré longtemps et ce n'était jamais trop tard en soirée. Il y a quelques produits de base fournis. Le logement est ouvert, pas de chambre véritablement fermée (juste un rideau) : pour une personne seule ou un couple, ce logement est un excellent choix !

  • Nice, one Big room appartment with a littel kitchen. Very quite and nice nabourhood worth to Explorer.

  • I rented this adorable nest for my Mumsy & Aunt, who were visiting from the East Coast. Mike & Nic were a complete pleasure to deal with. Great communication & prompt response to any Emails. The apartment is just as pleasing as in the pictures. The kitchenette is nicely stocked with all the amenities you would need for preparing some nice light meals, although we didn't actually DO any cooking there. How could we in THIS town?!?! They were also very sweet to have a few things like Coffee, Tea, Cheese, Crackers & more on hand when we arrived. I'm sure they don't make any promises for stocking supplies, but you can tell that it has the vibe of a well-maintained rental unit, where people who come & go often leave things for those coming after to enjoy, & there's always a touch of homeyness to it. Everything seemed fresh & nice though, not like a bunch of weird moldering stuff left over from who knows when! It's a fantastic, quiet, SCENIC neighborhood, although it IS a bit hilly. I find that that adds to the charm & really only matters if you have mobility issues. My 78-year-old Mum still managed to get down to the main drag on Cortland for lunch & back without difficulty. If you don't mind parking on hills, it's actually one of the most IDEAL places to stay in SF if you have a rental car. There are no parking restrictions on the adjacent streets except for a weekly street-cleaning, so you don't have to worry about getting tickets & the street parking always seemed prevalent. The views while coming & going from this place are always gorgeous. I, as a native, was grateful to have an excuse to come over to one of my favorite neighborhoods for the week! As long as you are fine with being a little off the Beaten Path, I think this is one of the nicest little places you could find in SF, for a great price. Thanks again, Mike & Nic, we had a BLAST!!!

    One bedroom sanctuary with a beautiful garden view and cozy fireplace. Comes with it's own entrance just steps from bus lines, train and all that Haight Street has to offer. Complete privacy with a separate bedroom, bathroom, and breakfast bar.
    If you want to be within walking distance to Golden Gate Park, Haight St, Buena Vista Park, and Cole Valley, this is the spot. Full size bed in the bedroom with 400 thread count sheets and a pull-out twin in the living room. Just installed fireplace and large screen tv makes hanging out fun in the comfortable living room. Bathroom has a shower within the tub and white fluffy towels.
    You will hear from many that this is the best neighborhood in SF. I chose this area for the many Victorian homes, the ease of mass transit, the walkability, and the abundance of parks,restaurants, and nightlife nearby. As a recent transplant to this area I can tell you that the stores, coffee shops, restaurants, and pubs are great here. I forget I have a car most of the time! Street parking is easy except for Wednesday 8-10 due to street cleaning.
  • Sehr nette Unterkunft mit zauberhaften Gartenblick. Die Lage ist sehr Zentral und eine Hop on Hop off Haltestelle in der Nähe. Sara ist eine gute Gastgeberin.

  • Der aufenthalt in San Francisco war bei Sara perfekt.

  • This was my first Airbnb experience. I loved Sara's home away from home. It is just like the photo's. Very clean, comfortable and so relaxing. Sara is a wonderful host with all the little personal touches, like milk, orange juice, and (my favourite) a chocolate. Quality linens are provided. Even had a hair straightener ! Access to a washing machine and dryer was very much appreciated. Public transport is abundant from Haight Ashbury to downtown.

  • My boyfriend and I had an absolutely perfect time staying at Sara's beautiful place! Sara was a wonderful host with fantastic communication! She greeted us exactly on time and was extremely friendly but was also so respectful of our privacy. When we first arrived we discovered that she had even left us some welcome treats, as well as milk, orange juice, and coffee! The bathroom was also fully stocked with a variety of essentials and some great white plushy towels. The suite is at the back end of her beautiful house so it was so quite, aswell as opening onto her beautiful cozy backyard! The suite itself was very clean, bright, and beautifully decorated and even had a fireplace which meant for cozy romantic evenings. The location was more than we could ever ask for with only a 1 minute walk to Haight Street which we loved because it was so close to all the action and hustle and bustle that we were looking for. Once again it was a perfect stay and we will be back as soon as we can!

  • Sara was waiting for us when we arrived from the airport and everything went really smoothly. Sara's apartment is very well located in the colorful neighbourhood of Haight-Ashbury. There are many nice restaurants and small cafés to have different bites every single day of the week. The apartment itself is quiet and tastefully decorated. All the amenities correspond to what was described in the announcement. Some chocolate and local wine were waiting for us upon arrival. Thank you Sara for those treats :).

  • What a beautiful secret garden and quiet, cozy living room with tasteful furniture! My friend and I shared the one bed room space, there is a comfortable sleeping sofa. It's very spacious and soft carpeted floor to relax and work. Fire place and lush green reminds me a country living even it's in the 15minuite bus to the down town. Also bus stop is only one block way with down hill.

    Private entry, sidewalk-level suite of living room, kitchen, bedroom and bath with artful touches in 1911 Edwardian. Close to beaches, GGate Park, GGate Bridge, groceries, cafes, restaurants on city-wide trolly line for memorable vacation/business/retreat. Easy drive to Marin.
    The private sidewalk level suite, is clean and comfortable with original windows and doors providing natural light and fresh air. It's San Francisco living so you can be sure to hear the sounds of a trolley passing by and footsteps from people in the flat above. SF STR permit number (4 zeroes) 949
    We live in a friendly neighborhood with cafes and restaurants, and are perfectly situated to walk or take local transportation to nearby visit museums. Step out the yellow door and there are walks through wooded trails to Baker Beach, the Golden Gate Bridge, Land's End, and Ocean Beach -- to the Legion of Honor Museum in Lincoln Park, the DeYoung Museum and/or the Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park, with its lakes and beautiful gardens of the Arboretum. If you prefer to sidewalk explore, it's fun to walk down Clement Street from 25th Avenue to Arguello, stopping in at the pubs and Chinese restaurants (little Chinatown) -- head a bit further to Fillmore Street, or take the full journey on the California 1 trolley (electric bus) - 7 miles to the Ferry Building (about a 2 hour walk) through the distinctly different neighborhoods that make San Francisco such a great place to visit and live. If you are looking for a movie and dinner -- Pizetta 211 and the Four Star Theater are just around the corner. There's something for everyone.
  • Nette unkomplizierte Gastgeber, sehr gute Gegend und Anbindungen, leckeres Cafe um die Ecke, liebevoll eingerichtet...würden wir (2 Erwachsene plus 1 Baby) jederzeit wieder hin!

  • Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt und das Apartment sah genau aus wie auf den Bildern

  • Tolle Lage um den Golden Gate Park, Lands End und das Presidio sowie die Golden Gate Bridge zu erkunden. Ins Zentrum mit den Öffis etwa 25 Min. Das Appt ist liebevoll eingerichtet und sauber. In der Küche ist alles da was man braucht. Dennis ist sehr nett und gern behilflich wenn man etwas benötigt.

  • Nette Wohnung in guter Gegend!

  • Sehr nette Gastgeber in einem wunderschönen Teil San Franciscos. Der Bay Beach ist 10 min zu Fuß entfernt und auch am Golden Gate Park ist man mit dem Bus sehr schnell. Sehr gute Bus Anbindung - die Linie 1 hält quasi vor der Tür. Auch die Unterkunft ist sehr sauber und großzügig. Die wenige Schallabdichtung in der Souterrain Wohnung zur darüber liegenden Wohnung lässt einen gewissen Geräuschpegel zu, daher ist es manchmal etwas störend. Ansonsten haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Vielen Dank an Dennis und seine Frau Nancy für die Gastfreundschaft.

  • Ein gemütliches und sauberes Appartement, dass mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet wurde. Es war ein schöner Aufenthalt!

  • Wir würden die Unterkunft weiterempfehlen! Die Wohnung ist sehr gemütlich, es gibt alles was man braucht. Das Bett ist sogar beheizt. Die Nachbarschaft ist ruhig, aber es gibt Lebensmittel auf der anderen Straßenseite und tolle Pizza um die Ecke. Bus in die Stadt direkt vor der Tür, Golden Gate Bridge ist auch einfach zu erreichen. Wir hatten einen tollen Aufenthalt :)

  • Mit viel Herz eingerichtete Wohnung, mit dem Bus circa eine halbe Stunde vom Zentrum entfernt. Bushaltestelle befindet sich gleich neben der Wohnung. Die Vermieter waren sehr freundlich.

    Unterkünfte in San Francisco erhielten 4.7 von 5 Sternen bei mehr als 660.000 Bewertungen
    Das Zimmer / die Wohnung waren Super schön & sauber! Chris ist eine absolut perfekte Gastgeberin!
    Die Unterkunft und deren Beschreibung stimmten gut überein. Einzig überraschend war, dass das Appartement sehr dunkel ist und nicht so hell wie auf den Bildern dargestellt. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und gut ausgestattet. Lindsay hat uns sogar einen Ordner mit Tipps und Vorschlägen für die Region und Verkehrsmitteln zusammengestellt, was sehr hilfreich war. Eine schöne Aufmerksamkeit waren die Snackriegel und gekühlten Getränke, die sie uns zur Verfügung gestellt hat. Die Kommunikation war sehr gut und das Ein- und Auschecken verlief reibungslos. Das Einzige, was uns nicht gefallen hat, war die Umgebung. Lindsays Beschreibung stimmt zwar mit dem Angebot überein, aber das Viertel beheimatet sehr viele Obdachlose, wodurch wir uns in der Gegend nicht sehr wohl gefühlt haben. Ebenfalls ist die Unterkunft etwa eine 30 minütige Fahrt weg vom Zentrum und dem Hafen. Wir haben nicht damit gerechnet, dass wir so weit ausserhalb wohnen werden. Dazu hätten wir uns aber selber im Voraus besser informieren können.
    Der Aufenthalt war wirklich toll!! Die Lage ist hervorragend und die Gastgeber sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Die Wohnung ist mit allem ausgestattet, was benötigt wird. Great!!
