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.

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!

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.
