Overview

Property Details

Updated: Mar 31, 2015
1 Bedroom, !.5 Bath, Two-Story Custom House, City and Bay Views, Quiet, Privacy

Located on sunny Potrero Hill, this two-story, stand-alone custom house combines luxurious living with a convenient location and spectacular views.

The owners live next door.

The house was built in 2000. It has 1 bedroom and 1.5 baths and sleeps 2-4 people. It is fully furnished with designer built-ins throughout. The rental is a stand-alone two-story house.

You will be welcomed with a complimentary bottle of California wine, seasonal fruit and flowers from our organic garden, and a selection of gourmet coffees.

Upstairs, you will find an open plan living/dining/cooking area with vaulted ceilings, wood paneling, a cozy wood burning stove, powder room, balcony, and wide city and bay views.

The gourmet kitchen includes a glass top stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, and large refrigerator/freezer. All countertops are granite. There is also a granite table in the dining area.

The living area has a comfortable reclining window seat, futon sofa bed, and a 40 inch flat screen 'smart' TV with cable. It opens onto a balcony with panoramic San Francisco skyline and views of SF Bay, the Bay Bridge, Oakland, Berkeley, and the East Bay hills. The balcony also overlooks our large garden where you can watch hawks, humming birds, migrating song birds, and even the famous San Francisco Parrots.

The downstairs master suite has a queen bed, with garden, and East Bay views, and a full bathroom ensuite (including large granite counters and a view from the shower). Closet and drawer space are ample. The owners provide hand soap and shampoo as well as all towels and bedding.

The house is tiled throughout. There is access to a private shared garden filled with fruit trees, native plants, roses, herbs, and other flowers.

Convenient drive or walk to gourmet and natural grocery stores (Good Life and Whole Foods markets), restaurants, coffee shops, clothing shops and Christopher's (our terrific, neighborhood independent book store).

It is a 10 min drive to SF's two most renowned farmer's markets featuring local organic produce, meats, seafood, and crafts. We are also 10 minutes from the historic Mission District. It is 5 minute drive to UCSF Mission Bay, SF Design Center, ATT Baseball Park (Home to 2010/12 World Champion SF Giants!) and a 15 minute drive to SFO.

Plentiful street parking is available (with off-street parking also available for an extra fee) and there is a bus stop across the street for easy access to San Francisco's attractions.

The rental offers a high efficiency washer/dryer in the garage, high speed wireless internet and flat screen TVs upstairs and down with cable, and telephone with free local service.

No pets and non-smoking.

Dan was wonderful to work with, answered e-mails quickly. This was a perfect location for our stay as we needed to make several trips to UCSf mission bay. Parking spot was right in front of the house for our a rental car. Easy access to grocery stores as well as a gym close by. The house was well supplied with cookware and everything else you could possible need for cooking including all the spices you could possible need as well laundry soap,tp, Kleenex, paper towels and more. The bed was super comfortable and a great place for my partner to recover. VERY quiet and safe neighborhood. I highly recommend this property. I have stayed at many VRBO, this one is definitely on my top 5 list.

Perfect place to experience the city

Lovely, airy, spacious apartment on top of Portero Hill equipped with everything a traveler might need. Wonderful spot for cooking and entertaining, with incredible views of downtown, Bay Bridge and the Oakland hills. Comfortable bed and a shower with a view on the lower level again with plenty of light. Very convenient to Whole Foods and the great restaurants on 18th street. Highly recommend.

Could not imagine a better place!

  • 5 of 5
This is a truly incredible gem in Potrero. I used to live in the same neighborhood, and staying in this place truly felt like coming home. A bottle of wine in the fridge on arrival, and everything else set up just perfectly. It was the perfect place to reconnect with the neighborhood and the city, and combine work and vacation. I was ready to move in!

The hosts went above and beyond to be helpful, and worked with our late arrival, and helping with packages that were delivered.

I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Spectacular Home

  • 5 of 5
This home is architecturally designed with lots of natural wood and plenty of sunlight from the multitude of windows streaming in from almost all directions. The living room is very spacious - as is the kitchen. The bedroom is downstairs - making it a bit cooler (was was/is a very good thing since we hit a heat wave for our stay). The view is fantastic and, as an added bonus, we had hummingbirds visit us for lunch daily. The owners maintain the space with great care - everything was immaculate when we walked in. The residence is right on a bus route making travel convenient although we had business down the hill - so it was just a 6 minute walk for us and Whole Foods is less of a walk than that. We found excellent, inexpensive restaurant food on 20th street just across the freeway at the American Grilled Cheese Kitchen and fine dining is not much further away. Loved it!

Amenities

Potrero Hill is our home. We enjoy the quiet, the warmest weather in SF, the instant access to freeways and public transit, the proximity to Downtown, the Embarcadero, and the Mission District, and the many parks and gardens (some with panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin, and NW SF). The Hill offers a wide array of local independent shops and gourmet restaurants, all minutes from our home.
