Overview

Property Details

Updated: Oct 29, 2014
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 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.

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!

Favorite of all my San Francisco Stays

  • 5 of 5
This apartment and neighborhood definitely made this SF stay better than all of my others (and for the record, I've been to SF probably 20 times, and stayed at a variety of hotels and apartments!). Potrero Hill is close to everything, but is tucked away in an area that feels very residential and quiet. You'll feel like you live in SF. Every morning we would walk down to go to World Gym, or get groceries at Whole Foods, or eat at one of the cute restaurants in the neighborhood. Ubers were always very close.

The apartment itself has terrific views, and a big open 2nd story living room and kitchen. Great space to prepare meals, eat, relax and watch TV. Wifi was quick throughout the unit. We only ever saw the only once, when we first arrived. I highly recommend this property to any VRBOers looking for a unique, comfortable spot in SF.

Terrific place

  • 5 of 5
Highly recommend this apartment. The view is gorgeous, the space is airy and delightful and well-organized. The neighborhood is trendy and interesting but sufficiently non-touristy that there is plenty of parking. Owners are solicitous and available, and have thoughtfully furnished the place with lots of storage, comfortable seating and beds, and amenities that include a fold-out ironing board behind a full-length mirror. Lots of interesting literature about the Potrero Hill neighborhood, San Francisco, the Bay Area and Northern California, public transportation, where to eat, etc. Prompt return of security deposit. Would definitely stay here again.

Rent This House!

  • 5 of 5
If you are planning a trip to the San Francisco area, and are not sure of accommodations, do yourself a HUGE favor and RENT THIS HOUSE! My family are experienced travellers, and my wife and I have been to San Francisco several times and this was by far the best stay we had in the city. Dan & Emily's house is in a quiet and safe residential neighbourhood and the pictures can not convey just how nice the house and the view is. You are within steps of the Muni Bus service to get anywhere in town, or if you rent a car, there is plenty of street parking available. The house itself is modern with all the conveniences of home- Updated Kitchen, Wi-Fi, Comfortable Beds, clean modern bathrooms, Flat Screen TV's and tastefully decorated. There is a grocery store, as well as several corner stores, excellent restaurants and coffee shops all within walking distance of the house. Dan & Emily were attentive and helpful to any requests before or during our stay. The only issue for any potential renters may be- you can not underestimate the hills- and if you are familiar with San Francisco- you will know what I am talking about. This house is at the top of a BIG hill. This did not bother myself or my family, but if you find walking up large hills challenging - this could affect your decision. My family and I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this excellent property and it's owners. Just do yourself a favor and Rent This House! You will not regret it.

Lovely home! Fantastic stay!!

  • 5 of 5
This is a GREAT place to stay in a really fun neighborhood, Dan and Emily were personable and friendly but completely non-intrusive. The pictures don't do justice to the house, or the view - which is sweeping and spectacular from the large living room. We had a wonderful time, would definitely recommend for those both new and returning to the Bay Area. Thanks again for being such great hosts and offering such a lovely place to stay!!

Perfect VRBO bargain

  • 5 of 5
Great space and location, comfortable and elegant. Fabulous views of the East Bay, on and near convenient bus lines, a brief walk to the Anchor Steam Brewery with its welcoming, unforgettable tour. I was able to work quietly in the morning and explore the city the rest of the day. The nearby hosts were helpful and friendly, but you are really in possession of this comfortable and spacious urban cottage.

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).
