Great neighborhood (Potrero Hill), close to transportation (SF Muni Bus Lines (phone number hidden) & T-Line), Caltrain, BART) and Hwys. 101 & 280. Conveniently located to nearby shops including Whole Foods; excellent restaurants (i.e. Chez Maman, Aperto, Sunflower, Serpentine, Piccino, Smokestack, etc…); with easy street parking. The peace and quiet of the country in the heart of the City!
Potrero Hill is the sunniest part of San Francisco, and feels like a village within the City, with lots of trees and gardens. There are great restaurants, boutiques, coffee shops, and wonderful views.
There are several bus lines within a block or so of the household. One can walk to the Caltrain stop at 22nd & Pennsylvania in about 15 - 20 minutes to head south down the Peninsula. From the airport, one can take a Shuttle, Taxi, or BART (which then would require a taxi ride). There is also easy street parking for those guests who will have a car.
SAN FRANCISCO SHORT-TERM RESIDENTIAL RENTAL REGISTRATION NUMBER: STR(phone number hidden)
Possession of a San Francisco Short-Term Rental Registration Certificate certifies that the registration certificate holder has agreed to comply with the terms of the San Francisco Short-Term Residential Rental Ordinance (San Francisco Administrative Code Section 41A). This ordinance does not require an inspection of the unit by the City for potential Building, Housing, Fire, or other Code violations.
Guests are welcome to share the kitchen, living and dining room areas (and the decks at either end of the house on the top floor). They also have their own bathroom, which is not shared with host.
Interaction with Guests
Depending on everyone's schedule, guests and host are able to interact whenever it's convenient for all.
Potrero Hill is like being in the Country in the middle of a City. Lots of greenery, more sunshine than anywhere else in town, terrific restaurants, views, shops and boutiques are all close at hand. Plus it's convenient to get to other parts of town or the Bay Area, being very centrally located.
There are several SFMUNI bus lines within walking distance, as well as the 3rd Street "T"-line to get to downtown San Francisco easily, and Caltrain, if you're going down the Peninsula to Silicon Valley destinations.
You can find travel information at 511.0rg website.
Other Things to Note
The "Nest" is situated at the top of Potrero Hill, which means that to explore the neighborhood on foot requires strong legs ~ it's always an uphill walk home...
There is, however, generally easy (& free) street parking nearby, for those who opt to have a car during their visit.
Share kitchen/living/dining area with owner. Smoking OK outside on deck(s). Please respect my home, and enjoy your time in San Francisco!
From Mar 1 - May 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
Cathryn was a great hostess...welcoming with lots of suggestions on what to do and where to eat (even emailing some ahead of time at my request), yet also very considerate of our privacy. The Nest was just as described, with comfy bed and great views! We loved it.
I highly recommend the scenic 40 mile drive of San Francisco. (Google on it and download the maps.) What a great way to spend a day.
Our bed was so very comfortable that after a day of travel we slipped in between the sheets and slept like babies. Our room looked out to a view with no neighbors across the street. And the view from the common living room, looks out across the Mission, all the way to Twin Peaks, where the fog was held back from covering the whole city. From the balcony, I watched a pair of hawks soaring through the wind, looking from South Bay all the way around to the tall buildings of downtown and the towers of the Golden Gate Bridge, peaking over the hill.
Our schedules synced with Cathryn's enough that she was able to show us the best way for us to make our selves at home. And so we did. Relaxing in our room, and in the living room and kitchen. And every way you turn, you see more art and decor that you missed the first time. Thankfully the location worked perfectly for us. We were able to use public transport and Lyft to get wherever we needed.
Absolutely stunning apartment, the views are incredible.
Very well located and Cathryn was such a lovely host.
Cathryn is a delightful and gracious host, always attentive yet not intrusive. She ensured I was comfortable and felt welcomed. Her home is elegant, clean and comfy. I was always very impressed by the stunning views. I was able to commute from Potrero to downtown easily using the T train. The neighborhood is convenient and lovely with lots of nice restaurants on 18th Street as well as a Whole Foods nearby on 17h Street. I highly recommend Cathryn's place and look forward to another opportunity to stay at the Nest.
Cathryn is a perfect host. Very friendly and helpful. The location is superb with great views over the city. Parking can be found easily around the place.
Great, comfortable home with amazing views and very hospitable guest. Enjoyed my stay.
