Amazing abode in an incredible part of city

We really can't express how much we enjoyed staying at this location...but we will sure try. After a long flight from Boston, Tony met us at the Bart station (a nice 15-20 min stroll from the house) and gave us a lift back to the apartment, but not before giving us an impromptu driving tour of Bernal Heights, restaurant recommendations, and general tips about navigating the area and getting down town. He was so incredibly nice and helpful that even after a long night and morning flight we were jazzed to explore the area. The apartment even had some snacks and drinks for us - major plus!
The apartment itself is wonderful. Clean and quiet and in a safe area close to some really cool shops and restaurants, as well as the oldest farmers market in California (about 6 blocks down the street on Saturday, not to be missed). Bernal Heights itself is wonderful, with great little wine bars and some truly exceptional cafes.
Getting around also proved to be much easier than anticipated. Using either the Bart or the bus (which I must admit are much nicer and cleaner than the Boston MBTA) was quick and efficient, as was getting a cab downtown or home at night. One major unexpected plus was that being so close to the highway ramp actually proved quicker for getting back via car or cab from downtown as opposed to staying deep in the center of the city.
In any case, we really cannot say enough good things about this apartment, about Bernal Heights, or about Tony.
