Emily is a San Francicso native, biologist/environmental activist. Dan is a software entrepreneur. We are both semi-retired. We live in the house where Emily was born and raised, which is next door to the rental.
When we moved back into my wife's home, we built the rental house for parents, family and friends. It was custom designed to take advantage of the views and to make guests comfortable and happy. Now we have decided to open the house for others to enjoy as well.
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.
Dan and Emily's home is wonderful. They keep it clean, warm and very comfortable. The view is to die for, although the rain throughout our stay was a bit of a disappointment. Was hoping for sunshine to enjoy the wonderful deck. The home is in a great, safe neighborhood; easy Uber ride to downtown and even easier walk to several great restaurants. Dan was very responsive to my inquiries, and helpful in every way. I strongly recommend this property.
We are a family of cooks, our 11 year old daughter appears on the FoodNetwork and my wife is in culinary school. The kitchen is honestly not set up for cooking in. Regardless, for the money the kitchen should be better set up. Also the kitchen drawers were not very clean. We've stayed in other SF rentals and kitchens were "cooking in" friendly.
Windows dirty and given the views this was disappointing.
Wi-fi intermittent due to service issues which the owner addressed in a timely fashion, but the internet speed was very slow, almost like good old dial up.
Washer/dryer in the garage which was not self evident and laundry area was dirty and cramped around a car.
Given some of the issues of cleanliness I just hope the cleaning service does a better job for the next vacationers esp since the cleaning fee is paid by the renter.
Beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood with a wonderful view of the City. I have nothing but good things to say about my experience at this property. The accommodations are very nice and comfortable, the neighborhood very friendly, and the views amazing. Highly recommend staying here.
We really enjoyed our stay here. The location is great with easy access via transit or vehicle. Parking was easy right in front of the house.The house itself had everything you need to make your stay comfortable. We only had a light breakfast there but the kitchen is well equipped. We liked the layout with the sleeping area down and the activity area up. Two bathrooms was nice to have. The upstairs area was quite large. With only two of us it was more than we needed but if there are more staying there, the extra space would be beneficial. The deck is small but it has a terrific view of the bay. It was pretty warm when we were there so we used the deck quite a bit. The house is well kept and clean. Having access to a washer and dryer was a real plus as we were there for a week. The area was safe and we had no concern with being out in the evening. There is a nice small area with restaurants nearby. We ate at four different restaurants there and were not disappointed. Be ready for a steep walk between there and the house, though. All in all highly recommended and we would definitely stay here again. Not a complaint but a note that there is no air conditioning. It got unusually hot (into the mid 80s) when we were there and the house got pretty warm as well. There's lot's of windows to open to cool it down but with the bus and other traffic on the street, having the windows open in the bedroom at night is not practical. I will emphasize that with the windows closed, noise was not an issue for sleeping.
I love staying in Potrero Hill or Dogpatch because the weather is usually more reliable than the outer neighborhoods. Plus Dogpatch is very cool with lots of great eateries, and Potrero Hill offers great views and a local Whole Foods.
This is a great property, very spacious and high quality in construction. Awesome views from the little deck. Well furnished. I love the location although it can be 30 min drive to anywhere in the city not nearby. Dedicated parking spot is a plus.
It's high end in pricing, but not out of line for San Francisco and the space offered. Well worth it if you want a real pied a terre with full kitchen, spacious bedroom, all new, high end construction and finishes. A few minor details in presentation keep me from giving it 5 stars (I am in the hospitality business and see things many do not), but I have passed these along to the owner and trust they will be addressing them. Hope to give it 5 stars next time!
If you are considering this place, book it!
This home has a wonderful view with lots of windows in a nice neighborhood. There was everything we needed and the parking right in front is a nice perk. The owner greeted us when we arrived to make sure we knew where everything was and said to call or text with any questions. Great place!!!
