Excellent house and neighbohood
We spent and excelllent time in SFO . The house was great, it had everything we needed. Dan's daughter who lived just next to us was always ready to help. Thank you very much.
Always a Pleasure
This is the second time we stayed here and it all works so well for us. The two levels, the view and the convenient location to our kids near The General. The unit is very clean and well maintained and enough for just the two of us. I am sure we will stay here again.
Comfortable place, excellent views, all you need to work or play in San Francisco.
We have stayed twice in this condo on Potrero Hill in San Francisco. It's quite comfortable, on two levels with generous storage in bedroom and bath, a full kitchen with adequate pots, pans dishes and utensils, pleasant living-dining room and a lovely deck with views of the bay and all of San Francisco. Washer-dryer is nearby, in the garage; parking is on a flat place at the end of 19th St. We loved it. The only drawback is its cost, which increased significantly in the 6 months between our visits.
We loved being close to restaurants and ate at several of them. We liked being close to family and able to walk to see a new granddaughter.
your home away from home in San Francisco!
Loved our stay here....very clean, comfortable, and the views of the city are incredible! It was the perfect base from which to explore the city. I'd recommend to any out-of-towners hoping to get a real San Francisco experience.
Comfortable and Convenient
This townhouse is well equipped,clean,well maintained & very comfortable for two people.The views across the bay from its balcony & sitting room are pleasant and the neighborhood is quiet with restaurants and shops conveniently close.Easy to get to downtown or out of San Francisco.
Happy to recommend it to friends.
Ideal for our Needs
It is always great to visit with family but we find it also necessary to have some quiet time to begin and start each day. With our daughter and her family just six blocks away, this home was perfect for our needs. The location provides a fabulous view of the downtown area and Bay Bridge from the deck and the same enchanting views from the living area. The two levels of the home meant that I could get up early (still on east coast time) and do my thing without disturbing my husband. The kitchen was plenty big enough for the two of us and beautifully renovated with many items useful for meal preparation - although we didn't because there are no many great restaurants nearby. Also very nearby is a Whole Foods and another neighborhood market. The home was very clean although not suited for small children as there are lots of things (books and glassware) on low shelves. Will definitely look to stay here again.
From the Owner
“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.”

From the Owner
“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.”
