Description

The space

Hi Guests,
ADULTS ONLY over 18 years old: NO EXCEPTIONS whatsoever so please don't even ask.
Welcome to the Garden Getaway- a suite of rooms in the heart of San Francisco's sunniest neighborhood. My property was designed with the quiet and mature adult in mind, the guest who is looking for a respite in the City, for a place to catch up on much needed sleep and restoration between days spent working, visiting relatives, or exploring San Francisco. Many of my guests arrive with jet lag, so please- no kids (no infants/ toddlers/ children or teenagers) under 18 years old and no pets. I will be here to help you as you get acquainted with San Francisco.
Thank you for helping to insure a quiet environment for all of us.
I look forward to sharing my home and garden.
Getaway details:
There is a living room (sorry NO SLEEPING for an extra person on the couch), a bedroom behind the French doors, a small tropical atrium, and a large bathroom with tub/ shower. No cooking: I offer a "Coffee Bar" with coffee maker, local coffee, tea maker, tea selection, microwave, toaster and small fridge which is perfect for a quick breakfast, snack, or leftovers. Enjoy the local Anchor Steam Beer in your refrigerator! The room is designed for one or two adults to share the full bed, two adults maximum thanks, no kids (no infants/ toddlers/ children or teenagers) under 18 years old, and no pets or smoking, no parties, no commercial use such as for photos and video shoots.

Okay Airbnb-ers - read and trust your fellow travelers' reviews here. Kepa is one of the best (if not THE BEST) Airbnb hosts I have met. Super communicative, and clearly she's given outstanding attention to detail to her travelers' needs. Highly recommend staying with Kepa!

The place is super nice. I loved it ! It's clean and a bit secret (because of the entrance door), and there's an hidden outdoor shower just 2 steps away from the bed. Kepa's been very nice, welcoming me with refreshments in the fridge and maps and everything needed to enjoy the city. The bed is comfy, and the arrangements are perfect for a comfy weekend. Oh and, the view from portrero hill is marvellous to see :) Don't miss looking from the front windows !

The apartment had a warm comfortable and stylish feel with nice light. We liked the close walking proximity of great breakfast/dinner/coffee spots, a local bar for a late night drink, and a venue with live jazz. Muni is just a hop away and took us everywhere we wanted to go. If the weather's nice, there's a beautiful garden in the back with a picnic table and chairs. A very pleasant place to stay and Kepa was helpful and easy going.

Hi Guests,
Thank you for considering staying with me during your visit to San Francisco. Whether you're coming for business, pleasure, or to visit family, I think you will enjoy my rooms and my neighborhood.
I've been here in San Francisco and in Potrero Hill since 1978, and I can help you figure out what to do and how to get around. I've had construction and design businesses all my life and I'm enjoying adding Airbnb hosting to my daily routine. I've travelled quite a bit and enjoy having the world come to me!
