Located on Porter Street in the southeast part of San Francisco, this former Carriage House has a colorful past. Once a Speakeasy during Prohibition, it was later purchased and remodeled by a Merchant Marine who lovingly created an atmosphere reminiscent of a ship. Two units are available for rental. This a quiet location in a bustling city. There is plenty of street parking in this area, no parking permits required and no restrictions on length of stay, once you park your car.
Excellent nearby public transportation makes this ideal for those who are afraid to drive the steep hills and one-way streets of San Francisco. The #23 bus line is a few doors down and will take you to either Mission Street or the Glen Park Bart Station. The Carriage House is located a 10 minute walk from Mission Street where you can catch buses to downtown and connect to just about any part of the city. Bernal Height’s main shopping district, Cortland Avenue, is four blocks away and contains numerous shops, restaurants, video stores, grocery stores, deli’s, laundromat, bank, bars, library and much more. Be sure to take a walk down Cortland and enjoy all this busy street has to offer. The Farmer’s Market is held on Saturday, just down the hill - farmers from the central valley come to sell their produce, flowers, herbs, chickens, seafood, honey, nuts and breads. Arrive early to buy the freshest ingredients.
PAYMENTS CAN BE MADE THROUGH PAYPAL OR BY PERSONAL CHECK.
Dates Available: All Year Round.
Hi, I'm Annette (the one in the blue top); I manage vacation rentals in San Francisco and the two units listed here I own. So, if my units are not available, I usually have something else in the area. I travel around the world with my sister and we are avid scuba divers. I've lived in the Bay Area all my life and also have a great place for rent in Sonoma County in the redwoods (3 acres) which I rent out. I like to cook so you'll find my units with good knives, spices, oils and all the utensils you need for making a fine meal. I hope you enjoy your stay here - at least half of my renters are here to visit family and friends in Bernal Heights and the other half come from all over the world to stay in an affordable clean place near good transportation. At least a third of my business is return customers...I hope you'll stay with me and get to enjoy the Bernal Heights neighborhood life!
It was a long term rental until Rent Control ruined my prospects for profitablility.
