It is only a few short blocks to Cortland Avenue, the true heart of this bustling village.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007
We chose to buy our vacation rental in this location because Bernal Heights is one of the sunniest and safest neighborhoods with some of the most friendly people in San Francisco. It’s close proximity to Cortland Street restaurants, shopping, and abundant amenities were first on our list. We also wanted our guests to have easy freeway access from SFO and Silicon Valley, as well as public transportation options to other parts of The City.
This location was perfect for us while our home nearby is torn apart for upgrades. This cottage is well equipped and maintained... over a garage with shared laundry facilites that were modern and efficient. We brought too much of our own stuff so we were jammed in there but if you only had luggage, it would be perfect.
The Location is excellent... one block away from a great butcher (who also has great sandwiches for lunch) and only a couple blocks away from a nice grocery store, bars and restaurants. Try the Peruvian, or italian, or seafood/sushi place. Great coffee shops and bakeries. one block from the bus and easy access to freeways if you have a car.
come visit! it is a great spot to relax after seeing all of San Francisco.
Just finished a wonderful 2 week stay at the "Cottage". The place is very nicely appointed with a full size range/oven, full size refrigerator, dish washer, etc. Very comfortable bedroom and living area. It can be a bit cool on winter mornings as the wall furnace doesn't
throw much heat to the bathroom on the far side of the unit. I still give it two thumbs up.
The Flat was fantastic. Not only the property, but the kitchen is stocked with quality glasses, dishes, pots & pans, knives, etc. The property was very clean. The posted description and photos are accurate.
The location is perfect for walking to two parks that accommodate dogs. My dog and I went to Bernal Heights Park daily where we met multiple friendly pets and parents; at Holly Park my dog enjoyed the grass under her paws.
The location is an easy walk to various local businesses on Cortland Ave; Safeway is also within walking distance. Parking was no issue. Regardless of the day or time I was able to find parking within the block that accommodated an Explorer. The streets are narrow, but once I went down them a few times it became easier.
The person I worked with to reserve the Flat (James) was quick to respond to my email questions. I had the opportunity to meet James on the day I left; a very nice guy.
The Flat was quiet, even though there was another occupied (including a dog) flat upstairs. Entry into the complex was via a locked gate. This provided an extra level of security as there was a code that needed to be entered in order to open the gate.
There is access to a high efficiency washer and dryer within the secured courtyard.
Overall I was very pleased with the Flat and its location. This is one place I will try to reserve upon additional trips to SF.
My partner and I recently stayed in this outstanding apartment in Bernal Heights. Perfection is the easiest way to explain the experience. Located in one of best and fastest growing neighborhoods in the city, it's easy access to everything...including groceries at the nearby Safeway. The apartment is impeccably designed and appointed. Nothing is missing. Every detail has been carefully and tastefully integrated into this apartment to create a comfortable, peaceful, and quiet retreat for a truly memorable San Francisco experience. James, the property manager, goes above and beyond in assuring an amazing stay. If you meet the property owners, you quickly see why everything about the place is wonderful. In our opinion, there is NO place else to stay in San Francisco!
When I lived in San Francisco a few years back, I used to venture on foot from my home in Noe Valley to Bernal Heights quite often. The views are extraordinary and there is a peaceful feeling in the neighborhood. And that's how I would describe this rental - peaceful and comfortable. Everything was clean and well maintained and there are windows all around to let all the light in you could hope for. As vegans, my husband and I like to cook for ourselves and we found that in the kitchen we could easily be working on two projects at the same time. The nearby street, Cortland, had some fun, quaint shops: a coffeehouse, a natural foods market, trinket stores, and more. In addition, we ran into the property manager a few times and he was very kind and pleasant to chat with. We would definitely recommend this rental.
Clean, well-furnished, and nicely decorated, this "cottage" proved to be an ideal base of operation for our week in San Francisco. Bernal Heights is a great neighborhood with a nearby grocery, restaurants, and coffee shops on Cortland. We had excellent meals at the Liberty Cafe, the Blue Plate, St. Vincent, and the Slow Club and came home each night to a very comfortable bed. Kudos to the owners and to James (the property manager) for creating such an attractive and congenial rental. We will be back!
