Sunny, quiet private bedroom with own bathroom in 3 story townhouse (host lives on premises). Room is good-sized (approximately 11.5' x 13.5'), comfortably furnished, with bay window, and own private adjacent bathroom. Bamboo hardwood floors throughout, with two decks, views overlooking the whole city, fireplace, tall ceilings in common areas (kitchen, dining, living). There are laundry machines in unit, plus dishwasher, gas stove, cable and WiFi.
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.
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.

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!
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 as a host and Cathryn's flat are just great. Cathryn answered quickly on our mails and it was easy to check in. The rooms and the bath are clean and comfortable, the view unbelievable. Thanks for sharing your flat with us.
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.
Catherine gave clear instructions as to how to check in. The apartment is in a great quiet neighbourhood and it was easy to park. The open plan kitchen/living area was beautifully decorated and homely. It was very inviting on a quiet evening in. Catherine is an interesting lady and very chatty and welcoming. We felt at home straight away.
Everything was great- the place was beautiful, just like the photos. Out host was gracious enough to accommodate a late night arrival, and everything was ready when we got there. The room was clean and comfortable. Thought we didn't get to meet Cathryn, we enjoyed the quiet location, amazing views, and hospitality that included complementary tea and coffee in the cute and clean kitchen. We had no trouble parking on the street, and getting in and out was easy with the provided key. We so appreciated the info Cathryn left for us, and the travel books in the room. Thanks for a great stay!
