Bernal Heights townhome description

Charming Carriage House in Bernal Heights.

Crows Nest
This upper level junior one bedroom has individually hand-crafted woodwork throughout. The beautiful workmanship is carried through the entire unit, creating a nautical ambiance. Soak yourself at the end of the day in the deep antique clawfoot tub/shower. Or, cook yourself a warm meal as you look out over the yards of this quaint area. The kitchen boasts new granite counters, fixtures and appliances. Everything you need to cook great meals is supplied, including spices! There is more closet and cupboard space than you will be able to fill and plenty of light pouring in from the east and west facing windows. A double bed is located in the landing alcove; additional sleeping accommodations are available by way of a futon couch in the living room. The unit also has antiques and new furnishings.

Captain’s Quarters
This cozy bottom level studio apartment has new hardwood floors, a built in 'captain’s bunk' (double bed) and plenty of storage space. A very comfortable queen size Murphy Bed with new pillow-top mattress is also available in this unit. The bathroom has been completely remodeled with glass brick, tile and marble, allowing light to filter in. The newly renovated kitchen opens up to the living room and allows you to chat with your partner or guests as you prepare meals. The kitchen window looks out east upon a lovely garden and light filters through from both east and west facing windows. Everything you need to cook great meals is supplied, including spices! There is no shortage of closet and cupboard space in this unit. Antiques and new furnishings are found throughout the unit.

Please indicate if the whole duplex (both units)is wanted during the same time period. $50 cleaning fee per unit per week of stay. Half rent plus cleaning deposit required to confirm. Full rent due 30 days in advance. Cancellation fee of $100 if cancelled 21 days or more before arrival. Maximum occupancy per unit: Three per unit.

Located on Porter Street in the southeast part of San Francisco, this former Carriage House has a colorful past. Once a Speakeasy during Prohibition, it was later purchased and remodeled by a Merchant Marine who lovingly created an atmosphere reminiscent of a ship. Two units are available for rental. This a quiet location in a bustling city. There is plenty of street parking in this area, no parking permits required and no restrictions on length of stay, once you park your car.

Excellent nearby public transportation makes this ideal for those who are afraid to drive the steep hills and one-way streets of San Francisco. The #23 bus line is a few doors down and will take you to either Mission Street or the Glen Park Bart Station. The Carriage House is located a 10 minute walk from Mission Street where you can catch buses to downtown and connect to just about any part of the city. Bernal Height’s main shopping district, Cortland Avenue, is four blocks away and contains numerous shops, restaurants, video stores, grocery stores, deli’s, laundromat, bank, bars, library and much more. Be sure to take a walk down Cortland and enjoy all this busy street has to offer. The Farmer’s Market is held on Saturday, just down the hill - farmers from the central valley come to sell their produce, flowers, herbs, chickens, seafood, honey, nuts and breads. Arrive early to buy the freshest ingredients.

              Owner info

              About the owner: Hi, I'm Annette (the one in the blue top); I manage vacation rentals in San Francisco and the two units listed here I own. So, if my units are not available, I usually have something else in the area. I travel around the world with my sister and we are avid scuba divers. I've lived in the Bay Area all my life and also have a great place for rent in Sonoma County in the redwoods (3 acres) which I rent out. I like to cook so you'll find my units with good knives, spices, oils and all the utensils you need for making a fine meal. I hope you enjoy your stay here - at least half of my renters are here to visit family and friends in Bernal Heights and the other half come from all over the world to stay in an affordable clean place near good transportation. At least a third of my business is return customers...I hope you'll stay with me and get to enjoy the Bernal Heights neighborhood life!

              Why the Owner Chose Bernal Heights:
              It was a long term rental until Rent Control ruined my prospects for profitablility.

              The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
              Farmer's Market; close to Cortland Street and BART
