SUN-FILLED COTTAGE IN A GREAT BERNAL HEIGHTS LOCATION

Bernal Heights House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Ideal for vacations or as a home away from home for business travelers--a peaceful oasis with easy access to all that San Francisco offers. This unique 1-bedroom rental is not an apartment, flat, or in-law unit, but a fully detached San Francisco home. It features soft and hardwood floors and is drenched in natural light. Front and rear decks provide a great place to enjoy breakfast or an evening glass of wine. A well-equipped kitchen makes it easy to prepare meals or reheat tasty leftovers from a night out. The bathroom features washer/dryer, stained glass windows and a clawfoot tub. The house is newly painted and furnished and comes with a queen-sized bed that comfortably sleeps two. An American Leather queen-sized sleeper couch in the living room pulls out to accommodate two additional guests. If you need baby gear (pack and play, stroller or carseat) during your stay, please ask – the owners have a toddler! No dedicated parking, but street parking is readily available.

The house is located in Bernal Heights, a friendly and sunny neighborhood that has its own vibrant community. You'll be a block and a half north of Cortland Avenue – the heart of Bernal Heights – putting you in easy walking distance of great restaurants, bakeries, shops and the grocery store. Also a pleasant walk to the weekend Alemany Farmer's Market and Flea Market. Hike to the top of Bernal Hill to see panoramic views of the City or over to Glen Park Canyon to stretch your legs further. Stroll into the vibrant Mission district for tasty burritos, along artsy Valencia Street or over to Noe Valley for the 24th Street shops.

Public transportation is within blocks to take you into the theater district, downtown or the Castro - even to Berkeley and Oakland in the East Bay. By car, you can quickly get around the Bay Area with freeways 101 and 280 in close proximity. We're a quick zip to SFO airport.

We're a family of three, including a very active little girl. Michelle is an SF native, and Ryan has been excited to call SF his home since 2006. Given our backgrounds in design and environmental science, you'll see our passions infused in the house in many of the details from the amenities to the solar thermal heating system. This cottage was our home for 4 years, and we absolutely loved it. We hope that it will be a great home away from home for you, too!

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

We love Bernal Heights. It has a great neighborhood feel while still being close to many busier areas of the city. We still live in the neighborhood and commute to work via public transportation. On weekends, we love being able to walk/take the bus almost anywhere. We also love how sunny Bernal is and the many great spots on Cortland Avenue. So easy to grab a great meal or find a last minute gift in the variety of shops. Plus, people are very friendly!

The cottage is very quiet and gets great natural light with windows and skylights throughout. It's an excellent home base for exploring the city and provides a welcome respite from all the hustle and bustle when you're ready to relax. The two decks provide a perfect spot to hang out on sunny days. With a full kitchen and a washer and dryer, you have everything you need in the house and within easy walking distance - shops, restaurants, the library and the grocery store. Great for extended stays. Also, there's a non-functioning hot tub in back that we hope to have up and running very shortly!

Best in Bernal Heights!

My husband and daughter and I stayed here in early Oct. This is such a cute place, completely renovated and filled with sunlight. We have relatives who live in Bernal Heights and this is the fourth rental we've stayed at in as many years. This is by far the best! The big advantage is you are not above or below someone or in an apt. attached to a garage; this is a stand alone small home and that makes it unique and private.

What a great place to stay. My wife, son and I enjoyed the cottage so much. The location is excellent and the house is on a quiet, dead-end street with ample street parking. The back deck is fantastic for enjoying a cup of coffee, reading, or just staring up at the enormous pine tree....Down the hill on Cortland street is great shopping for food, cafes and bookstores.
A lovely touch for an experienced VRBO-ers such as us was the kitchen being stocked with coffee, tea and fresh fruit. Not a small thing for weary travelers arriving at their destination!

Cozy cottage in sunny Bernal Heights

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 12, 2013

We are returning to San Francisco after living abroad for many years, so decided to try a new neighborhood to explore for a week. What a delightful surprise! Bernal Heights is a sunny alternative to summer in San Francisco, yet conveniently located to freeways, local transportation and a wonderful 'village' feeling with several good restaurants (Moki's, Piqeo's and Vega) all within walking distance.

What made this cottage so special, was not only its good location, on a street easy to find parking, but it was completely private, safe and full of light due to its several skylights and beautiful flower views out every window. If you wanted to cook, it was very well-stocked with all necessities, spices and olive oil and offered a selection of dvds for a comfortable evening in. Decks in front and back got sun at different times, so were a welcoming place to relax, before or after a day out.

The owners were wonderfully responsive, welcoming and understanding, as we had a small mishap at the airport coming in, so our arrival was delayed a couple of hours. They were there to greet us and make us feel comfortable. The cottage was clean and well kept.

We'd highly recommend this cottage to anyone visiting San Francisco and we have already recommended it to our friends in the City who may need a place for their visitors to enjoy.

Wonderful Wool St. Cottage

  • Submitted: Jul 31, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
We love this cottage! It is so well-equipped, comfortable and cozy. The front deck is a lovely place for morning coffee or an afternoon glass of wine and the interior rooms are sunny and bright even in a chilly San Francisco summer (which is when we visited). The only problem is this: the cottage is so wonderful that we didn't want to leave it to do any of the touristy things we had planned. That said, the Glen Park BART stop is just a 15 minute walk away and MUNI buses run through Burnal Heights. So when we did tear ourselves away from Wool St., we had easy access to museums, parks and city attractions. We can't wait to return.
