At Home in San Francisco
Bernal Heights is a family-friendly community of neighborhoods, parks, restaurants, and shops. This is a charming house on a quiet residential street. A weeklong stay let me, my husband, and two longtime friends from New Zealand (all in our 70s) sample what it means to live in San Francisco—and to see why that’s so popular today. The house is roomy and well appointed. The arrangement of bedrooms and baths on different floors offered quiet and privacy for two couples traveling together, while families with children may appreciate the extra bedroom with twin and crib that adjoins the ground-floor master suite. We used the well-equipped kitchen and comfortable dining room for breakfast every day and dinner most nights. Conveniently located within walking distance are gourmet food and wine shops (up on Cortland) and a fully stocked supermarket (down on Mission). This area, like much of San Francisco, is hilly; our small rental car was welcome for grocery shopping for the week as well as for trips from the city, though we also walked or used nearby public transportation. On-street car parking was generally available right in front of the house. This is a great San Francisco home base for a vacation or a long-term stay.
