Dear Guests,

This is an Adults Only accommodation.
My "cabin- like" units garden were 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 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) and no pets.
Thank you for helping to insure a quiet environment for all of us.
I look forward to sharing my home with you.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Our stay at Kepa's garden cottage far exceeded our expectations. It's location, views of the city and accessibility to public transportation made it ideal during our July 4th stay. It was especially fun to meet our host and share a love of gardening. The cottage had all the amenities of home. We have been traveling the coast for two weeks and this was voted our favorite place. Thanks Kepa we'll be back for sure.

  • The suite was perfect! I stayed for one night due to construction to my apartment in SF. I was able to book this suite the night before my stay. Kepa was very quick to respond and accommodate me for my stay. The suite came with all the necessary amenities and more! I only wish I had more time to stay and enjoy the entire property as I had to work the following morning. Highly recommend booking this suite!

  • We truly loved our stay at the Potrero Hill Garden Suite. Perfect location for those who enjoy getting to know a quieter, under the radar neighborhood--Potrero Hill has wonderful restaurants and views. The parking was stress-free and Kepa's accommodations were the best. She has a fantastic shared garden that feels like a getaway itself within the city--we had a hard time deciding whether to go out for a drink or stay in the garden with a beer! Kepa is a gracious and helpful host--so friendly with a great knowledge of the city. We would absolutely stay here again and again.

  • Really enjoyed the place and offered every amenity one could hope for. Would definitely stay here again.

  • Thank you Kepa. We enjoyed your hospitality and your wonderful garden. A true oasis in a busy city. Local cafés were great with really friendly, informal staff. Highly recommend for those wanting a special San Francisco experience.

  • Kepa was kind enough to let me book her place for my aunts visiting from Vermont -- here for my wedding. They had such an amazing time. According to them, Kepa's place was a beautiful respite from the city. I am very grateful for her attention and wonderful hosting skills, and for making my aunts feel so at home.

  • Kepa and her place were great! The apartment was spotless and the garden inviting. She was very warm and welcoming once we arrived and provided excellent recommendations for places to eat, how to get around, and where to park. She had a very streamlined and professional check in and check out process that enabled us to come and go easily. Out of all the places I have stayed using Airbnb her place was definitely one of the best. I would definitely book again!

  • Me and my friend stayed here for the night for our friend's graduation and it was just lovely!! The garden looks incredible and the area is really nice. Kepa is also very nice and even offered to take me and my friend's photo. :-) it was very relaxing being able to have lunch and just hang out in the garden. Kepa is very detail focused when it comes to her guests. You'll find maps, list of places to eat, and even some snacks in the room! Would love to book again!!

  • Complete jaw dropping gardens...we had a great stay with Kepa in the Garden Suite. We found the place just as described; very clean, comfortable and many fascinating things to explore within. Books, pictures, maps...right up our alley.
    The neighborhood is very close to AT&T Park (we walked), good restaurants, parking was "hassle free" and Kepa's place was easy to find. We will absolutely return but might choose the suite without people above us. Thank you Kepa for taking time to speak and share a few stories...really enjoyed and appreciated your hospitality.

  • Really nice place. Great location with beautiful gardens. Nice restaurants nearby. I was at a conference at the concourse exhibition and it was easy to take a bus with less than 2 blocks of walking but it's also an easy walk. Also great if visiting adobe zynga or any number of high tech companies. There are few hotels in the area so this is a great alternative.
