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.

Great appartment in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely appartment in fantastic location. Lots of lovely touches in the appartment make it a pleasure to stay there. Great shops and restaurants in walking distance and easy bus ride downtown. It felt a lovely safe neighbourhood. Food wise Red Hill Station was our favourite!

Ramona was lovely and very helpful. They live upstairs and although sound travels very easily within the building, it was always quiet after 10.

Would highly recommend !

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay in Bernal Heights. Located in a leafy sidestreet next to the main shopping area, this location offers both shopping opportunities and myriad restaurant choices.

The secure street level apartment itself is delightful. There is a private patio in the backyard, an efficiency kitchen handy for snacks and light meals, a comfortable bedroom, a large bathroom, and a nice-sized living room for relaxation.

Ramona and Aaron, the owners, live upstairs with their family.

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.
