Sunny Bernal house just off Cortland

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

My three bedroom, two full bathroom house is great for any visitors to SF.

Our recently remodeled home is close to all the charm that Cortland Avenue has to offer. It's also near Bernal Hill, which has amazing views, and the highway, for folks wanting easy access to the south bay. My place is great for couples, business travelers, and families. We have a washer and dryer, and parking is plentiful.

UPDATE ON PARKING, April 2017: San Francisco has just imposed a restriction on parking on our block between Monday and Friday, 8am to 5pm. You can still easily unload baggage in front of the house, but you'll need to park your car one block up the hill or in my garage (if the garage is available).

For more info on Bernal, do an internet search for "Bernal Heights" and "new york times."

The upstairs master bedroom has a queen bed and a television (with a Roku attached). The other upstairs bedroom has a full bed and a television with a Chromecast attached. Downstairs there is one bedroom (with a queen bed) with an attached, private full bathroom (with a shower). This downstairs room does not have a television.

The living room, recently renovated kitchen, and another full bathroom (with a tub) are also upstairs. We also have a small backyard and a little outdoor landing.

Although there is no television in the common area upstairs, there is a projector which turns the upstairs into an amazing little movie theater.

Also in the common area is a couch where someone can sleep and, if need be, a very comfortable air mattress. Assuming two people are in each actual bed, and one person on the couch and air mattress, my house can sleep eight.

Some guidelines:

-Please remove your shoes when you're in the house.

-If you are throwing out large amounts of trash/recycling/compost, put it directly into the bin in the garage. In the kitchen, the trash is the silver bin and the recycling is the plastic bin.

-Do not flush anything other than toilet paper in the toilet.

-No smoking of any kind inside.

-To open the front door lock press the “Schlage” button and enter the code I have given you. Be sure to leave the bottom lock (the knob) unlocked. To lock the door from the inside, shut the door securely and simply turn the deadbolt. To lock the door from the outside, close the door securely (make sure you pull it tight) and press the “Schlage” button. When the door locks correctly the green check mark will light.

-To open and close the blinds in the living room, just pull them down or lift them up. The blinds in the bedroom have a button in the middle you need to press before pulling them down or lifting them up.

-Parking is generally available on the street. Don't leave anything valuable in your car (see parking update above)

-Please, no parties and no drugs.

-Note that VRBO will charge an extra 2% fee for international credit cards. If this is the case, the extra 2% will be taken out of your security deposit.

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect. Victor was always quick to respond to any questions we had and was incredibly accommodating. The home was in a great neighborhood with a grocery and quaint restaurants within walking distance. House was clean and nicely updated. Our family especially enjoyed the projection tv in the living room. Parking was always available even for our 15 passenger van!

Wonderful place to stay when exploring San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this clean, well appointed, comfortable, roomy house. Everything about it was great and it was perfect for our family. The movie projector was really cool and Victor went above and beyond to help me with technical help so we could watch a movie from my computer. Thank you Victor!

Sister's trip

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for my sister's and me for our trip to San Francisco. Bernal Heights is a great little town with awesome shops and restaurants. We did not rent a car and had a very easy time getting affordable uber rides everyday into the city, even at 4:30 am for our trip to the airport. With 3 bedrooms there was plenty of room for all 4 of us and playing cards/watching movies in the evenings was fun and comfortable in the kitchen/livingroom. All in all we could not have asked for a better experience. Thanks Victor!

Awesome place at an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

I went on a family trip to the Bay Area with my sister and her family (a baby), my parents and my family (two kids). We all absolutely loved this house, it's modern, nicely decorated and very comfortable. We were very pleased with the location, since we were able to take the bus or Lyft everywhere for a good price and not have to worry about parking in the city. The neighborhood felt very safe and very typical San Francisco architecture, there is a good brewery one block away which was a plus for us. The owner was very responsive and nice. I would definetly stay in this house for any future San Francisco trips.
