Just a down to earth person with a lot of life experiences. I have a 17 year old cat with no tail named 'Elvis' (indoor cat) who lets me live in his house! San Francisco is where I live/work. i know about every inch of the City and there is no street I dont know! I am well traveled and can help you get around City. I just want you to have the best time while visiting... I know when I travel I appreciate somebody who can give good directions or is familar with City.I am a car kinda guy and you might catch me in one of my old Mercury Cougars going to car rally or catching a Giants game.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2008

I choose this area for the beautiful old homes and neighborhood feel. Its an old very established neighborhood. My house is in a very convenient area near all transportation and typically you can get to anything from my house in about 15-20 minutes (major attractions) I am freeway close for those wanting to go to Silicon Valley, Monterey, Santa Cruz or just trip down scenic highway 1. You dont have to drive across down to get to the freeway... Very in-out. EXCELLENT transportation hub. Bus is a 5 minute walk, BART our rail system is 15 minutes (easy ride downtown to all tourist attractions/business)

First affordability, SF is very expensive and you wont get anything like this downtown or you will pay twice the amount, plus pay for parking! Its a very quiet neighborhood. You will come home to a nice apt you can relax in after a day of tourist activities. Maybe sit on the deck with a glass of wine. You will get me as a host and my goal is to make your stay as nice and fun as possible. My experience of 35 years living in San Francisco will be of value in helping you make reservations, insight on SF and just getting around... I know how to get around and that includes by foot, bus (public transportation), and car.

This property is equidistant between Bernal Heights and Glen Park. Glen Park has a handy BART stop, so really you have both buses and subway to get you around. It is about 20 min by bus to downtown. As a couple, we found the place is very well kept, and comfortable. We met Eric the day we arrived and he was very helpful and accommodating. Much better than renting a hotel room. I would highly recommend staying here and we would do so again!

Owner's Response: Great having you both stay at my place! and thanks for letting people know of the ease of transport around the City. You really dont need a car here. Staying here is like being part of the neighborhood experience... Your with the locals and not in a hotel with the tourists! Hope you both come back again and have a great Holiday Season...

Eric is a wonderful host, picked us up at BART station, which was a short walk, and he had basic food in the kitchen for us. Nice neighbourhood, and close to transit if that is how you are travelling. The apartment is cute and clean, just as shown in photos. Only complaint - mattresses could be better but everything else made up for that minor detail. Lovely little garden and deck in back (better than in the pictures), which was perfect for enjoying a glass of wine in the evening and a relaxing cup of coffee in the morning. Would stay again, and recommend to others.

Wonderful Stay!

We loved it! My husband an I stayed here for a week in August while visiting our favorite city and new grandbaby. It was wonderful. Eric was so hospitable and friendly. He was a great "innkeeper" and even provided us with great coffee. The place was safe, clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed it. And the parking was great, always right in front of the house. This was the first time we had done a VRBO so I was a little nervous...no need to be as everything went smoothly. We were able to walk to different restaurants and shops and when we drove it was close to the freeway. Also, the deck was great for reading, sipping wine or drinking coffee and the sun always shines at that end of the city! Thanks Eric for a great week. There is no doubt we will be back again. Hopefully soon!

Well-kept, updated, beautiful rental! Love the half kitchen!

Recently- a friend and I both traveled to San Francisco for a 'girl's trip' for a few days!! I arrived at the rental (which is surprising close to the airport) and was impressed as soon as i walked in! The living room area and kitchenette area were decorated nicely and kept up! The bathroom updated and the sleeping quarters were also updated and nice size. Now we only had 2 females, so I think any more than 2 people you may get a little cramped! We also had a rental car and it was really nice that we had ample parking near the garden apt. We didn't do public transportation, but I believe the BART is right down the road! We had everything we needed to make our stay great- even a few 'groceries' which was a definite plus! Eric did a great job in making sure anything we needed was available for us. Also he did a great job in securing that we were able to get in touch with him or someone else if we needed anything. Outside had a really nice patio area that we would have utilized, but we did not bring enough warm clothes (crazy Louisiana girls) because we were not expecting it to be so windy and cold!
Our ONLY complaint was probably the bed. Now - granted my friend and I both have super soft comfy pillow top beds, so the bed for us was not comfortable. All in all we were able to improvise, but it was not enough for us to not want to stay here again. Would definitely recommend if you are a couple or again two people staying there!! Highly recommend Eric and this property!! If I ever return to San Fran and need somewhere to stay- I would definitely stay here again! Thanks again! :)

We had a fantastic 10 day stay in San Francisco and the accommodation was even better than we could have hoped for. It was very clean, quiet and safe. This made it an ideal location to stay within easy reach on public transport to see all the sights. Eric was a great host who went out of his way to make us feel very welcome with lots of helpful tips. We would definately recommend this accommodation to friends and family. We would not hesitate booking again with Eric as dealings with him were honnest and very straight-forward. Thank you for a great stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! Honesty and integrity is really what I am all about. I will tell you what I think only after you have asked. One of the questions I get often is Can we do all of this during our short visit to SF? I can pretty much organize (maximize) your time while visiting with ideas. One of my favorite things is providing a bus route that will take you through many of the little charming neighborhoods of SF. Things you wont see on the giant tour bus!
