We have lived in the neighborhood for many decades. We enjoy everything San Francisco has to offer from the people to the shops and restaurants of the neighborhood to the music to life around a large beautiful bay with access to miles of beautiful ocean coastline. We have worked in the area and between us have enjoyed hiking, biking, golfing, sailing, tennis, cooking, writing classes, museums, nature hikes, urban hikes and more.
We developed the look and feel of this home over many years to bring out the beauty of the Victorian while adding warmth and style that will enhance any stay in Bernal Heights in San Francisco.
Bernal Heights reflects many wonderful sensibilities of San Francisco, from the love of food and art to culture and history. It offers a small town feel and at the same time well blended with overall San Francisco life. This is the experience both in the sweeping views where you can see downtown in the distance with Twin Peaks and Bernal Hill sloping off in either direction as well as in the superb taste of fresh foods,music and art available right our your door.
You will love the warmth of our home, cooking up meals in the gourmet kitchen while gazing at Bernal hill, enjoying your favorite music on an exquisite audio set up and most important enjoying your master bedroom with views, a fire in the fireplace and an incredible spa bathroom that will enrich your San Francisco experience and make you feel you belong. A surprise to us that travelers love is the flyway created by Bernal hill for a variety of birds to take wing - a master show outside a large window in the master bedroom - right from the bed! Hawks, sparrows, blackbirds, seagulls, and hummingbirds share this flyway creating a spectacular show.
The house is filled with carefully hand selected wood that creates cabinets, doors and panels. For foggy days, the wood combined with the tiles and lighting invoke warmth and a comfortable home base. Whether you are staying in for the day or taking off to view the city sites or beyond to a coastal cruise or wine county tour, the apartment is the perfect home. Visitors and people working in the area for a period of time have felt charmed by the area and have enjoyed relaxing and living in this craftsman Zen Victorian as an integral part of their stay.
