About this listing
Two comfortable, quiet guest rooms and private baths in well-appointed and stylish townhouse. On top of one of the famous SF Hills, in the desirable Potrero Hill neighborhood. Great views! Easy transportation & street parking.
A cozy, sunlit filled contemporary, comfortable townhouse with two bedrooms, and two bathrooms (master bedroom with bath ensuite). All at the tippy top of Potrero Hill with incredible views overlooking the City. Bamboo hardwood floors throughout. Gas stove, dishwasher, washer/dryer in unit, WiFi, cable. Quiet and interesting neighborhood, with easy street parking, close to great restaurants (Chez Papa, Aperto, Piccino, Serpentine, etc...), shops (Whole Foods, Good Life Grocery, Chiotras Market, etc...), and public transportation (SF Muni Lines 10, 19, 48, and 22) and the CalTrain at Pennsylvania & 22nd Street. Near UC Mission Bay, CCA (Calif. College of Arts), easy proximity to the Mission, SOMA, downtown SF, Hwys 280 and 101.
Just a note: This is my home/primary residence, but there are occasions when I travel or can make arrangements to be elsewhere if there are guests interested in renting the whole place. I do have a home office in the lowest floor of the house, that I'd perhaps come and go from, as needed and with coordinating of schedules. All of those logistics can be discussed, of course, when a booking is made, or during your stay here.
This is a very special place to call 'home' on your next trip to the San Francisco Bay Area!
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 may use the kitchen, and do a bit of laundry, if needed. I have all of the basics for cooking on hand, and just request that if anything is used up by a guest, that they please replace it before they depart.
Interaction with Guests
Depending on the situation, I am around to have a visit, make suggestions of places to go, things to do, or where to eat. On occasion a meal is shared.
Potrero Hill has the best weather and views in San Francisco. I like the feeling of being a bit in the country (many trees, birds), but also really being in the City. There are excellent restaurants nearby (mostly on 18th Street or in Dogpatch), as well as some lovely unique small shops.
There are several bus lines that run within a block or two of my place (the #10, the #19 Polk, #48, etc...). Generally I recommend taking buses to go out, but if a guest is coming home later in the day, a taxi is an easier way to get home. I also live in a rare corner of San Francisco that actually has fairly easy street parking, so having a car and stayin here is not an issue.
Other Things to Note
I am located at the top of a fairly steep hill, so being in good enough shape to walk up it (and having good, comfortable shoes) is a plus!
Please treat my home with respect, and leave it as you found it. Smoking is permitted outdoors only, on the deck (not inside!). No pets.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our week at Cathryn's Potrero Townhouse. It was "sunny," and very comfortable. Her "Nest" nickname was appropriate as it was a great place to come to, warm, clean, homey, welcoming. We appreciated the views of the city from her deck and from just outside the townhouse. And the living / dining room area (shown in the main picture) was an excellent place to have a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of win in the evening after a day in the City, or in the surrounding Bay Area.
The description and pictures were accurate, beds comfortable, bathrooms and showers clean, and her instruction sheets detailed and quite helpful. We appreciated her recommendations and guidance as to stores and restaurants in the area. The neighborhood was pretty good, with easy access to the freeway. You do have to be comfortable driving and parking on hills, however.
We also enjoyed getting to talk with Cathryn and learn a little bit about her. She is an interesting, enjoyable person.
We highly recommend Cathyrn as a host and her place to stay at.
Wonderful time staying at Cathryn's place on Potrero Hill. Beautiful view, beautiful home. Thanks for a great stay!
Appreciate your feedback re: the floors, and will endeavor to do more on that front, moving forward (plus, I generally wear slippers in the house, so wasn't aware of that issue). Also, wish you'd let me know while you were here, and I would have made an effort to rectify the issue during your stay!
This cozy nest is both beautiful and close to all the wonderful spots we wanted to explore. The view is spectacular, and our host was so warm and hospitable; she made sure to make everything easy for us. She had great recommendations for eats and things to check out. If you are visiting SF, please check this spot out. It is worth EVERY penny.
We enjoyed our stay at Cathryn's beautiful home. Though we didn't get to meet her, but she left no stone unturned to ensure that our stay was most comfortable. She was prompt in answering all our queries.
Potrero hill neighbourhood has a lot of character and a unique SF feel to it, and Cathyrn's house is perched on a hill that affords majestic views!
We loved staying here. Nice and quiet, great view. Fantastic Host.
Everything worked out great for our Thanksgiving in San Francisco. This townhouse was very clean, quiet, convenient to our family, and perfect for what we needed. It has great views including a glimpse of the golden gate bridge towers when it is clear enough. Our son brought us a bag of Philz Tesora coffee and the coffee maker brewed it perfectly. We'll definitely stay here again when we need two bedrooms. Even the radio in the master was tuned to NPR station KQED, so I didn't have to search for it.
The view from Sunny Potrero Township of san francisco is one of the best view you can get.
The house is really comfortable and we had a really nice time in that house.
I definitely would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a good comfortable stay in SFO.
Canthryn was kind enough to call and let us know that it might rain during our stay in SFO and we can use her umbrellas. She also informed us and let us used other house hold utensils like washing machine and kitchen. She is definitely a kind hearted and nice host.
