Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our stay at Casa Andover. The furnishing are brand new - feels like at an upscale B&B: comfortable bed, quality bedsheets, good coffee, even organic shampoo and soap. We came to visit friends who live in Bernal Heights, and the location fantastic - easy walk to our friends house, but also to the nice grocery store down the street, cafes, and bookstore.

The host was very friendly and accommodating. We have two teenagers who didn't want to share the sofa bed in living room. We asked for an extra mattress and the host provided it, along with bedding. We really appreciate it! Highly recommended for families.

Loved staying in this charming one bedroom apartment. It was the perfect location and allowed my family feel like we lived in San Francisco. We are family of four, two adults and two teens, we fit perfectly in this quaint space. It had everything we needed. Loved the short walk to some delicious restaurants and unique gift shops! Ramona was a wonderful host! Can't wait for our next visit!

Nice place!!! This was a really clean and well designed, maintained apartment. Well-stocked little kitchenette that could really be useful in longer stays, but we only stayed two days and just really wanted to try all the great restaurants! Super close (1/2 block) to some great shopping: boutiques, eateries, markets and coffee specialty shops. Only a block and half away from some great hiking trails around Bernal Hill Park with fantastic views of the city. Our hosts were very nice, accommodating and hospitable and we enjoyed getting to meet them, loved all of Arran's beautiful artwork in the apartment too.

Peace and Quiet with lots of style

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in Bernal Heights as my partner's son now lives nearby and we wanted somewhere close to walk that was interesting and near public transport for getting about the rest of San Francisco during our holiday before we headed back home to Australia. This apartment suited us perfectly, comfortable, spacious, spotlessly clean and in a great location just off Cortland St. The separate bathroom was quite luxurious with a stand alone claw foot bath and stacks of good quality towels. The small garden with seating was a pleasant place to sit and relax when the sun was out. There is sufficient cookware to eat in and there are number of great restaurants and cafes nearby. Ramona and her family are wonderful and unobtrusive hosts and we were very pleased to return for a few days after a side trip to Sacramento. We have no hesitation in recommending the apartment and hope to return in future.
