This week, the vacation rental service Airbnb launched a rather gorgeous new webpage that highlights the glamour and charm of Bernal Heights for potential visitors who might want to avail themselves of the 140 places to stay here.
The page is half travel brochure and half photo essay, and here’s how it summarizes Bernal Heights:
Outdoor enthusiasts, indoor bookworms, and pet lovers rejoice! Bernal Heights’ accessibility extends far beyond its practical commuter conveniences. Warm and inviting, Bernal Heights’ bright Victorian homes, organic markets, and gay and pet-friendly bars and cafes enhance its welcoming atmosphere. Nestled between the peaks of San Francisco’s rolling hills, this casual and approachable neighborhood is a charming residential respite in the City by the Bay.
The images are lovely and the description sure makes this sound like the kind of place we’d like to visit:
Sidewalk benches, farmers’ market food stalls, and bookstores that invite you to stay awhile define this friendly neighborhood removed from the rush of of the city.
Bernal’s key attributes are said to include:
Charming, Far from Downtown, Lesbian Friendly, Quaint, Cottages, Hilltop, Cafes, Small-Town Feel, Artsy, Views
One noteworthy oversight: They neglected to mention our convenient, slopeside access to Ski Bernalwood, San Francisco’s premier wintersports resort destination. Oops.
Overall, however, the page makes Bernal Heights sound great. We’re sold! Let’s book it! And the best part of all is that we get to vacation here every day.
