About Sean Braden

We are a California family who have lived in San Francisco for almost 10 years.

Why Sean Braden chose San Francisco

We are a 3 block walk to hip and quaint Cortland Avenue - home to 5 star restaurants, local coffee shops, bakeries, sweet boutiques and stores. We are also walking distance to Holly Park and Bernal Hill that have some of the best wrap around views (photo op!) in San Francisco as well as great areas for dogs and kids. You might also like Alemany Farmer's Market (Saturday) and Flea Market (Sunday).

We are less than a mile to Mission Street - bustling with the full diversity and flavor San Francisco has to offer - an array of restaurants offering local California cusine as well as food choices from all over the world. There is a great selection of trendy and ecletic bars with many types of fun live entertainment.

What makes this house unique

We close to BART and MUNI and have access to all parts of the city. There is easy street parking in our neighborhood if you wish to drive. We are also very close to the 101/280 if you need quick access to the pennisula/silicon valley or for a day trip down the coast.

We are happy to help with tips on various sightseeing activities for all ages. If you have children, we are happy to accomodate with beds, toys, highchairs, booster seats.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this apartment very much!! The owner's description and our expectations matched very well with the experience of our stay. We especially liked the extensive equipment and personal touch of the apartment. We had a car and I think it was valuable that there was a parking lot outside the apartment.

Luxury Indeed!

  • 5 of 5

This property is all as advertised - and more! We had four very pleasant days here in early May. This was our very first time in the USA and we were so glad we stayed here rather than an expensive hotel downtown which only gave a fraction of the quality. Thank you Sean for opening your home to us.

This is an excellent holiday apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This lovely apartment is in a charming Victorian house in the heart of Bernal Heights. Our stay was extremely comfortable and there is everything one could possibly need in the apartment; it's exceptionally well equipped for a holiday let. We enjoyed everything about our stay here, including a very pleasant garden. Bernal Heights is an attractive & interesting neighbourhood and Cortland Avenue, the main shopping street with a variety of restaurants & cafes, is a short walk away. There are spectacular views of the city from the top of the hill. Access to other parts of San Francisco is easy as the public transport system is so good. We would be more than happy to stay here again and will recommend it to friends.

Luxurious, comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful well kept home from home. We found this property most comfortable & clean. Kitchen has all mod cons & everything stocked if you wished to bake or cook. The fridge was even stocked for when we arrived! We had every thing we needed for a family off five - Situated in a beautiful quiet part of the city with close proximity to the bus routes & shops. Relaxing garden with beautiful flowers & water feature. Great weather & the smell of flowers filled the streets, I would most definitely recommend this home for your stay & we will definitely book it again when we go back.

Thankyou Sean Sonya & Boys!

Great family size and location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at this place. Sean was a fantastic host from the start, with great information about bringing the kids down and necessary equipment (I am so thankful I didn't bring the BOB stroller!) The actual location is centrally located and beautiful - with the home providing a comfortable but luxurious stay. We had ourselves plus 3 kids 16, 8 and 2 and there was plenty of room. The kitchen was the stuff of daydreams and the bathroom can only be described as opulent. There was a nearby grocery store, great restaurants and fun bars - easy walk to nearby bus stops too. It was an amazing stay.
