Why Kamala Mostert chose Bernal Heights
This is a lovely property for a visitor who would prefer to enjoy the comforts of home in a wonderful location as they visit the extraordinary city of San Francisco and surrounding Bay Area.
What makes this House unique
Over a century old, this beautiful Victorian is a stunning home. The 11' high ceilings, the bay window, the old douglas fir wood floors, the marble mantle, the double hung windows, the quaint garden with all of the modern amenities you desire for a comfortable visit.

This house is everything! From the location, to the architecture! Wow! I felt lucky and honored to be in one of these iconic houses on the best neighborhood in SF!
Take a walk to Whole Foods, get yourself dinner and cook in the best kitchen! Dolores park is great in a sunny day, worth the walk!
Thank you Kamala and your family for sharing your lovely home with you! We will be back and hopefully lucky enough to stay at your place again!
Just gorgeous with artistic details throughout. It reminded me of a European townhome.
Kamala welcomed us with a hand written note and a bottle of wine! She was very easy to communicate with throughout our stay. The home was bright and airy with a balance of original details and modern additions. I used instacart for groceries and enjoyed cooking in the ample kitchen while the kids played with legos. The backyard was relaxing with a well cared for garden and hot tub. We felt very at home here and enjoyed our stay! *If we stay again I will use a rent car rather than bus. The use of a garage is a rare find in this city!
Great family home - stay July 2018
Not sure what the last review was all about. Nice house, all amenities as you would expect. Kids loved the hot tub, it worked fine. Muni is a short walk away and it takes 40 mins to get down town. Nice restaurants nearby as well. It’s on a main road but no noise, so you get a good nights sleep. Garage took our car, a Ford Expedition so no issues with parking. Safeway Supermarket short walk away. We are a family of 5 and we’re very happy with our stay, we would Recommend this house.
Dirty and not all appliances are working properly
This property looks much better on paper than in reality. The pictures used on the site are clearly from when the Reno was first done. Now everything is just dirty. The front door blows open if not deadbolted. It has a crack running through it that lets dust and air in. The landing is dirty and could use a good cleaning job. Bad 1st impression. The stove top was dirty, the oven was filthy. Not sure when it was cleaned last. The oven door didn't work properly. All their condiments where in the fridge, sorry but I'm not using them. The light in the fridge didn't work and we got a couple of shelfs in the fridge. The towels were ripped and musky smelling. The cushions on the chairs in the backyard were filthy dirty as where all the chairs. The 1 night we actually used the hot tub it stopped working within 5 minutes.
There's only 1 TV in the entire house and you have literally 5 remotes to use.
We were asked to take out the garbage & recyclables to the curb. We forgot. We are on vacation and that was not on our minds at all.
This was a very disappointing experience. The location was great and I'm sure it looked great when it was first renovated, but now it just looks used, tired and dirty.
Our friends who never used VRBO before where not impressed.
Nice and quiet location but close enough to everything
Nicely appointed house in a quiet neighborhood but still close enough for a quick walk to shops, coffee, markets and food. House has lots of amenities that made it feel like home and a much better experience than a hotel.
Overall the stay was wonderful. The house had everything we needed and was in a location that was easily accessible to everything we wanted to see. There were restaurants and a grocery store within walking distance. The owners were very accommodating and responded to all our questions quickly.
San Francisco is an extraordinary city as it is a peninsula offering access to the bay and ocean. Windsurfing, surfing, fishing, whale watching, and sun bathing are available along our shores, with a beautiful historic city at the center.
Enjoy lovely restaurants, bars and entertainment right in Noe valley and the Mission district, or grab the MUNI or BART to head downtown to China Town, North Beach and Telegraph hill for exquisite sites and sounds. Bike riding along the Pacific Hwy. or hiking the Lands End Trail north of Hwy. 1 are lovely sites accessible by MUNI. Golden Gate Park has the Academy of Sciences, The DeYoung Art Museum, the Botanical Gardens, The Conservatory of Flowers, the Japanese Tea Garden, Stowe Lake with the paddle boats, and so much more to enjoy! All accessible by MUNI.
Closer to our home is Valencia street; venture out on foot to find the best local cuisine, bars and entertainment in the city. Lovely cafes and shops with a farmer's market just blocks away on 24th Street.
Have a car? Head over the Golden Gate Bridge and enjoy the National Parks and State Parks of Marin. Or head south down 280 to Rt. 1 and you'll be in Half Moon Bay in 15 minutes to enjoy tide pools, surfing, body surfing, mountain biking and hiking.
