I live in Bernal Heights neighborhood. Full of charming shops/places to eat.Bus is on corner and about 15 minute walk to BART station ( our rail system) which will take you downtown SF. Also 15 minutes to US 1 Coastal Route (Monterey, Santa Cruz, Monterey). Easy on/off freeway to US 101/280


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Just a down to earth person with a lot of life experiences. I have a 17 year old cat with no tail named 'Elvis' (indoor cat) who lets me live in his house! San Francisco is where I live/work. i know about every inch of the City and there is no street I dont know! I am well traveled and can help you get around City. I just want you to have the best time while visiting... I know when I travel I appreciate somebody who can give good directions or is familar with City.

Why the Owner Chose Bernal Heights:
I choose this area for the beautiful old homes and neighborhood feel. Its an old very established neighborhood. My house is in a very convenient area near all transportation and typically you can get to anything from my house in about 15-20 minutes (major attractions) I am freeway close for those wanting to go to Silicon Valley, Monterey, Santa Cruz or just trip down scenic highway 1. You dont have to drive across down to get to the freeway... Very in-out. EXCELLENT transportation hub. Bus is a 5 minute walk, BART our rail system is 15 minutes (easy ride downtown to all tourist attractions/business)

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
First affordability, SF is very expensive and you wont get anything like this downtown or you will pay twice the amount, plus pay for parking! Its a very quiet neighborhood. You will come home to a nice apt you can relax in after a day of tourist activities. Maybe sit on the deck with a glass of wine. You will get me as a host and my goal is to make your stay as nice and fun as possible. My experience of 35 years living in San Francisco will be of value in helping you make reservations, insight on SF and just getting around... I know how to get around and that includes by foot, bus (public transportation), and car.
