About This Listing
Vintage/Modern style Private Queen Bedroom + Private Bath in sunny Potrero Hill, SF. Small view of GoldenGate Bridge from the room and other SF views from the living room. 1 block from bus that runs straight downtown. Come hang and take in the SF culture!
You will have access to the the kitchen and laundry if needed.
Interaction with Guests
I work 10am-4pm so you might see me. I'm in and out on the weekends and sometimes not there at all.
Po hill is AMAZING. Wouldn't change neighborhoods if you payed me. Known for being one of the sunniest neighborhoods in SF plus we have awesome views of the city.
You can catch the 19 bus about a block from the house. This will take you downtown to the rest of the transit. Caltrain & BART is a few blocks downhill.
Other Things to Note
We are renovating parts of the house. All areas are accessible but some spaces are not the prettiest because they are currently getting a face lift. Mainly the entry way stairs, kitchen, and laundry room. If you don't mind this - we don't mind you staying :)
Smoking OK on the back porch. Don't touch the dogs without asking - they are usually in our room during the day and out roaming the house only when we are home. I would consider Pets depending on size and manner.
We have a family living underneath us so try not to come in loudly in the middle of the night. Just be considerate.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the city. Karl was more than accommodating when I had a booking fluke. He went out of his way to make the space welcoming for us with only a couple hours notice.
The space was wonderful, with an absolutely gorgeous overlook of the city. The description and reviews are spot on. I could see the Golden Gate Bridge from my bedroom window. Not to mention the space itself was very comfortable.
The neighborhood is quiet with ample street parking. The space is near a bus stop making it incredibly easy to get to the heart of the city.
We had a great time and would highly recommend his space over any hostel or hotel. If you are looking for a deal on a room with a view, this is your space.
Karl was a great host!! His house is very nice and well located. There is always free parking in the block and also has a bus stop in the next block.
We felt like home and had a great time in SF.
Karl was always available and he was very helpful, telling us los of things to do and places to go. We enjoyed a lot chatting with him and also hearing his records!
Logement tout à fait conforme à la description et bien placé. Nous avons pu visiter très facilement la ville avec le bus 19 à proximité qui passe à peu près toutes les 15 min. Karl est très sympathique et a pu répondre à toutes nos demandes, en même temps nous avons pu profitez de notre intimité. Nous recommandons ce logement sans hesiter et encore merci à Karl pour son accueil.
We had a great stay at Karl's house, we definitely recommend to stay there rather than in a hotel in a touristic area.
The location is amazing, residential, clean and quiet with beautiful views from every street corner. It is on a steep hill but bus 19 stops just in front of the house! To go downtown, you have to walk only 2 blocks down, you have either bus 19 or 10, then it is 15-20 minutes depending on where you are going of course (just have in mind that you can have to wait for the bus). We also used UberPool, you pay just $7 from anywhere in town!
We enjoyed the small grocery store right next to the house and a small coffee shop by the bus stop. Felt like we were living there, we really appreciated it.
Going to Karl's house was easy with a code replacing the key and he gave us all the indication. Karl was very welcoming and made us feel at home, even the two dogs were very social and cute. The room was perfect, bright and clean, and as everyone mentioned it I agree on the fact that the bed is amazingly comfortable! Also, the view from the house is breathtaking.
We loved our trip to SF and staying at Karl's house was part of it!
Karl had great instructions on how to find his place and get in should he not be there. We came from SFO using Ride Share and were let out directly front of the house. The room was ready when we arrived. This was our first experience with AirBNB & we were not sure what to expect. We were also not familiar with San Fran and found we had chosen a part of town with the steepest roads! Bus transportation one block away was very convenient for our escapades to the Wharf and other parts of town. TOO much to do in too little time. Great for single traveler, backpacker and young couples. Climbing up two flights of stairs not easy for older couples. No handrails on the inside of apartment, be careful. Dogs were GREAT! Needed pet therapy after leaving our 2 at home!
We enjoyed our stay with Karl this past week. The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable. Karl made every effort to deal with any problems that arose. We enjoyed conversing with him in the short amounts of time we were all there and the dogs were delightful. At ages 67 and 77, we were pleased to be able to climb Potrero Hill from Whole Foods on 3 occasions.
Karl's place was a perfect refuge from the city. Bright sunny room, amazing view of the city, ample street parking - and his dogs are adorable. Highly recommended!
