Please Note: If you are looking for a party pad, this is NOT the right place. San Francisco has a noise ordinance after 10 pm in residential areas as these and they are enforced.

No pets please: Though we love pets, we have a "no pets" policy in the Garden Apartment.

Quiet time after 10 pm. That means music, TV as well as loud conversation. Noise travels easily here due to the closeness of homes and please be conscious of this.

Also if you do go out to the garden at night after 10 pm, please be cognizant of the fact that any loud voices or laughter carry straight into all the single family homes and cause complaints.

We are all adults and can show the basic courtesy we would like to receive ourselves.

Please do not dispose of sanitary towels or napkins in the toilet. There are bags provided for disposal of the same in the drawers in the bathroom.

No smoking in the garden patio or in the Garden Suite.

Please inform the host of any problems that need fixing immediately.

Please do not burn candles in the unit or bring candles from the garden indoors.

Use the Recycling bin, Garbage Bin and Compost bin outside the unit by the garage door to dispose off any rubbish you have put in the dust bins provided in the unit. The compost container for food waste is under the food area basin during your stay, to be emptied out in the green compost container before you leave.

Please ask the hosts if you have not used Apple TV for a quick overview, so you can avail of the entertainment amenities. Of course, most guests do not spend a lot of time watching TV, but if you have the uncontrollable itch to find out what happened in episode 89 of your favourite show, you can do so as long as it is available to view for free or via your own account.

Feel free to contact your hosts anytime by for anything you need or have questions about.

Extra Towels and Toilet Paper provided in the bathroom cabinet under the basin. Shampoo, Facial Tissue, Hair Conditioner, Body Soap all provided as are ear buds in the cabinet drawer in bathroom along with a hair dryer.

An iron and ironing board are permanently in the unit, so feel free to use as you wish.

Note: PLEASE take out the rubbish, and recycling and compost and deposit in the bins outside the garage. And washing dishes and cutlery makes it convenient for us.
This extra gesture really makes a difference for a 2 hour turn around allowing a guest 22 hours stay at the Garden Suite.

Kunal's home is extremely comfortable and situated on a quiet street. There are shops and stores and restaurants just a block away. I booked this place for my 90 year old dad and my brother and sis-in law on the occasion of my wedding. They all had a positive experience. Kunal was friendly and good with communications

Kunal is a great host. Received us with beverages and baked goods both times. The house is old and a little oddly laid out but that only adds to the charm. We visited the city with our 2 adult sons and really enjoyed the location. Close to Mission and Cortland Avenue - with ample eating and interesting retail. Sunsets on Bernal Hills was another highlight. If you like quiet residential areas with easy access to services you cannot go wrong with this choice.

Awesome neighborhood. Hiking to Bernal Hills and great restaurants and cafes at your doorstep make this a great location for taking in the city.

My family recently rented this gorgeous and comfortable home. It had everything we could possibly want or need and the owner, Kunal, we a terrific and thoughtful host. Very communicative and attuned to our needs. Everything was comfortable and clean and its location in Bernal Heights couldn't have served us better in terms of parking or getting around the city. I would most definitely stay here again should the need arise. Thanks for making our trip less stressful Kunal!! Tanya, Dave, Lily & Daisy
