Overview

San Francisco Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Great location on a hilltop that overlooks San Francisco. One of the best microclimates in the city. It is frequently warm and sunny while the rest of the city can be cold and foggy.

According to real estate website Redfin, Bernal Heights North Slope in San Francisco is the hottest neighbourhood of 2014 in America.

We compiled two documents to share with our guests with tips on visiting San Francisco and vicinity: 30+ attraction points, activities, restaurants, public transportation, suggested itinerary etc. Our past guests found it very helpful. Please contact us at 650-8629417 if we can provide more comfort and convenience during your stay.

Very quiet location, no through traffic at our location. This two-bedroom unit includes a full bath, spacious kitchen, refrigerator, gas stove, dishwasher, hot water dispenser, microwave, iron/ironing board, and washer/dryer in garage downstairs.

Street parking is REALLY easy on our streets, unlike the tight parking situation in the rest of the city.

Please take off your shoes to enjoy the freshly-done hardwood floor. Two bedrooms are apart for privacy. Comfortable queen size bed with memory foam mattress, and ample closet space in each bedroom. Living room sofa can be adjusted to three positions or turn into one more double size bed (with a memory mattress topper). HD flat screen TV (Basic TV package with Roku & HDMI cable for online streaming services such as Netflix, youtube) and wireless Internet. Backstairs access to the yard with full view of the city.

Walk downhill to Precita Park surrounded by cafe, restaurant, deli, corner grocery store. Just one street turn to Bernal Heights Park and walking trails with spectacular panoramic views of the city. The hilltop is perfectly serene and romantic spot to watch sunrise, sunset, star gazing and fireworks. Walking distance to Cortland street (a lovely shopping street in the neighbourhood with organic grocery store, coffee shops, bakeries, unique gift stores, yoga, massage, art galleries, library, and a variety of restaurants: Japanese, Nepalese, Italian, Peruvian, Mexican, California cuisine etc.), the new trendy Valencia street, the Missions and 24th street shops and restaurants.

We developed a web site for our guests to check the bus arrival times for each bus line and bus stop. MUNI (SF bus transit system) 67 bus stop around the street corner to the BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) station (24th & Mission), or walk to the BART station in 15 minutes. A short drive to Noe Valley/Castro, Civic Center/Union Square. 3.5 miles (10-15 minutes drive) to downtown San Francisco.

Only a couple of minutes to get on 101/280 freeway, very convenient for business travellers to commute to Peninsula and south bay. It's within 15 minutes drive to San Francisco International Airport.

Our check-in time is 4 PM, and check-out time is 11 AM. 3 nights minimum stay. Exception can be made for dates between reservations or last minute bookings.

Please observe the quiet hours (10 pm - 8 am) for our neighbourhood. Please help us keep the noise level down in the apartment and outside on the street.

The rates are based for two persons. We charge additional $20 - $25 per person per night, adult or child. Please include the TOTAL number of guests at the time of inquiry or booking request. We charge $100 cleaning fee and $200 refundable security deposit.

If you arrive before the check-in time, please inform us beforehand and arrange to put your luggage in our garage.

Please treat our place like your own home and have the right expectations on home sharing. It's different from your hotel experience. Thank you!

Perfect trip, will definitely stay again

  • 5 of 5

Michael's house was a perfect choice for our business trip. We had meetings in sf and down in Silicon Valley. It was easy for us to get around to all of our meetings and then do some sightseeing in our downtime. There were also plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars near the house. Michael was very accessible, like a real b&b host. We locked ourselves out and he was home to let us in. The house was clean, modern, and spacious. The view from that hill is beautiful. Would definitely stay here again.

Michaels apartment is spot on

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our five night stay. Michael the owner was exceptionally good at providing us with detailed information ahead of flying out to San Francisco and this came in very handy throughout our stay. The apartment is at the top of what may be the steepest slope but we found the it was really ideally situated. We drove to a nearby station and caught the BART (Bay Area Rapid Transport) - parking is just $3 for the whole day and free at weekends. This took us "rapidly" into the city and you come up right where the trams operation. Michael's apartment is very light, airy and very spacious. Michael warns you not to expect anything too modern as the apartment was built in 1949. Nevertheless the beds were exceptionally comfortable and everything you needed for a self catering stay was available. I would highly recommend staying here. I left some clothing behind and texted Michael to see if he could forward them on to Palm Springs which he did same day - not only that he laundered some of the items which was really nice of him. I would have no hesitation in staying here again.

Great Base Camp

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was a great base camp for our three-night stay in San Francisco. Michael is a GREAT host. Very accommodating and helpful. Apartment has all that you need for a comfortable stay. We had two adults and two teenagers. Plenty of space for all. It was fun being in a neighborhood and at Michael's suggestion, we walked to the top of Bernal Hill for a great view of the city. We were surprised at how easily we found parking near the apartment and how easy (and cheap!) it was to park in downtown San Francisco compared to Chicago.

Clean, tidy and comfortable apartment.

  • 4 of 5

Thank you so much for the help assistance during our stay. The owners were on hand with help and advice but also left us to enjoy the apartment. The beds are super comfy and the apartment has everything you could need for a short stay in the city. I'm really glad we had our car as there aren't any shops or cafe's in the local area that don't require a very steep walk to get to. My mum had bad knees so this was an issue for us. If you have a car as we did there is no trouble with parking nearby, just took a bit of time to get used to the gradient of Ripley street....LOL. I would highly recommend this apartment for a short stay in San Francisco having the car was essential and parking downtown was reasonable, as we had 4 in the car it made it more cost effective than taking public transport.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your good review. Our house is located on hilltop (but on a flat street), as the listing title says. There is a bus stop right around the corner of the other end of our street. One-third of our guests chose public transportation over rental car, and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the city, and our neighborhood as well.

great apartment, great neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples and one teenage boy. The bedrooms were comfortable and the couch in the living room converted to a bed for one - all made up ready when we arrived. Michael gave clear check in instructions and was there to greet us. He gave detailed information about restaurants within walking distance and public transportation schedules. It was easy to take the bus from the neighborhood into the city to connect with BART (the subway). We enjoyed walking to breakfast down the steep hill, and also walking down the stairs to the south to another area filled with restaurants and shops. The views from the apartment were awesome - the bay to the east and looking down over San Francisco out the back. It was fun to hike up to the top of Bernal Heights in the park to get panoramic views of the whole bay area. We were always able to find a parking place somewhere within a block and often right across the street from the apartment.
