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.

Comfortable, clean, private

  • 5 of 5

this is the second time we have stayed at the Andover House. It is private, comfortable, clean, and spacious. It's very convenient to the downtown area of Bernal Heights to our favorite little restaurants and coffee shops. The owners were very gracious.

Very good. Extremely conveniently located. Adequately equipped. Very comfortable. Lovely patio.

  • 5 of 5

We were there for Thanksgiving and my daughter lives in the neighborhood, so it was only a 7 min walk. Cortland Avenue, a 3 minute walk away, is a terrific little street that has everything you might need for a short stay including a market, restaurants, and fun little coffee places. The apartment is located close to SF public transport so easy to get around the city. There are a couple of really great parks very close by, so if you have kids, this is perfect. There are two small playgrounds for younger kids and tots, plus a larger park on Bernal Hill, which is a lovely walk with a fantastic 360 view of the city.

The apartment itself was well maintained with lots of room for three adults - one bedroom and a sleep sofa in the living room. The rear patio was fun altho because of the fall weather, we were not able to take advantage of it. I assume it would be perfect in spring and summer and perhaps early fall. All in all, it is a good value for San Francisco.

There was a hot plate and a toaster oven rather than a microwave , probably because there is no regular stovetop and oven. However, for a short stay, there is everything one needs to be comfortable.

Wonderful hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

We love this place. It is bigger than the photos show. Bathroom is large and plenty of shelves, large dresser. Plenty of chairs and nice kitchen area and table. It is just steps from great food, a lovely neighborhood and parks. It is clean, comfortable and has everything you need. Wonderful friendly owners. Our toddler liked the sweet backyard area. Highly, highly recommend.

Casa Andover was roomy, neat, and very comfortable. It fit all our needs.

  • 5 of 5

The Harvey property was in a perfect location. Our main reason for staying there was to visit our daughter and her family. They live on Cortland Street which is only nine blocks from Casa Andover. It was perfect! We definitely would return in the future. The Harvey family was most gracious and accommodating. We highly recommend this property!

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!
