About this listing
Enjoy fabulous views of Downtown and Twin Peaks from this well appointed bedroom atop Potrero Hill. The hot tub, with its own fabulous views of The City, is always ready. Parking is easy. Check out 100+ 5 Star reviews.
Your Room: French doors open to a balcony with breath-taking views of Downtown and the windows above the desk look onto Twin Peaks.
My home is ideal for business travelers (easy access to Moscone Center, Downtown as well as the freeways) and tourists alike.
This third-story West-facing bedroom includes a European Sleepworks queen bed, fine linens and towels, Cable TV, desk, computer speakers, large closet and wireless internet.
Be sure to soak in the backyard hot tub. It is hot and ready for your enjoyment (before 10pm please). The views are phenomenal: Twin Peaks, Downtown, and even the top of the Golden Gate Bridge.
You'll access a large and luxurious sky-lit bathroom featuring a large shower with 2 heads. There is additional full bathroom available downstairs (on the main level) if needed.
The house is set away from the street with a gracious front patio/garden. Despite its convenient location, the home is very quiet, a welcome retreat after work or your day exploring San Francisco.
I always have coffee and tea, and either English muffins or whole wheat bread available for you. You are welcome to use the kitchen (always for breakfast and snacks, but please coordinate with me for other meals).
In addition, feel free to relax in the living room and outdoor patios too.
Let me know if you need access to the washer and dryer as well (more appropriate for guests with stays longer than 2 nights).
Interaction with Guests
I'll be in the home to help with any questions about your room, Potrero Hill and San Francisco. My master suite is on the bottom floor providing great privacy for all.
Potrero Hill is not only known for its sunny weather but also for its friendly vibe. A variety of restaurants and bars are in walking distance. Whole Foods is an easy amble down (and up!) the hill. And the Mission District beckons to the West. 85 Walk Score!
If you're interested in San Francisco Giants Tickets I have 2 tickets in the Bleachers section. Let me know if you're interested and the specific date.
I'll send you my custom GoGoBot guidebook (works on smartphones too), links to nearby transit routes, as well as promo codes for discounted rides on Uber, Flywheel, and Lyft (only good for new users of the service).
Potrero Hill offers easy access to the hot Mission District, AT&T Park, SoMa, and Downtown - all are walkable and the area is well served by city transit. Sitting between highways 101 and 280 access to the rest of the city and the entire Bay Area is easy. Lyft and Uberx provide easy accessible taxi-like service (ask me for promotion codes).
If you are renting a car or driving, there is plentiful parking outside the home. No meters or permit required. Just remember to "curb" your wheels on the hill.
Other Things to Note
Note that there is one bathroom on the third floor, between the two guests bedrooms (the other bedroom is down the hall). There is additional full bathroom with tub available downstairs (on the main level) if needed.
Also, I work out of my office on the main floor during the days.
Check out pics of new solar panels!
Bonus: Check out pic of Steve McQueen outside my home while filming Bullit in 1967!
I hope you enjoy my home as you would enjoy the home of your friends or family. To me this means being quiet late at night or in the morning, cleaning up after yourself, and communicating any issues as soon as possible.
Here are a few specific rules:
Please let me know how many people in your party. It is important for me to no whether I'm hosting one or two people.
I have a 2 persons per room limit except for babies with parents. No exceptions.
No additional guests allowed - for a visit or over night - without prior permission granted. Please understand that this is an important security precaution.
As the hot tub is used by myself and other house guests, please limit your hot tub time to 45 minutes (you'll likely be too hot anyway and it starts to cool down with use). The hot tub is near my bedroom so please use the hot tub between 8am and 10pm. Do not bring glassware to the hot tub (I have plastic glasses). Clothing is optional, I will respect your privacy (but can't vouch for the neighbors).
Absolutely no smoking except outside, and please pick up after (even on the sidewalk).
Guests with children must be careful with use of hot tub and decks.
Guests are expected to pick up after themselves.
Absolutely no pets.
Off Limit Areas:
Master bedroom and bathroom
Downstairs storage areas
Bikes and any other outdoor recreation equipment.
From Jan 11 - Feb 29, 2016 the minimum stay is 3 nights.
