About this listing
This is a great little apartment for people who just want a reasonably priced spot to sleep and then are off to work, explore, or visit friends and relatives.
This fully furnished apartment with one bath is conveniently located in sunny Potrero Hill, just 2 blocks from 18th street shops and restaurants. The unit is on the ground floor, has a private entrance, a fully equipped kitchen, separate living, dining and office areas, bathroom with bathtub, and access to a quaint back yard.
The apartment was built as a convenient spot for grandparents and other relatives to use during their visits. Please note that while the space is usually quiet, you will hear all of the steps from the hardwood floors above you mainly in the morning and evening hours.
Note: our apartment has lower than usual ceilings. If you are 6'2" or under, there should be no issue. If you are taller than 6'2", you probably won't be comfortable during your stay.
This unit is a true in-law apartment and gets very little natural light. There are some small windows to open for fresh air.
Non smokers only, no pets.

Interaction with Guests
This is our home - we live on the top floors with our growing children. This sturdy old house was built in the late 1800's with hardwood floors on the upper levels and uninsulated walls throughout - you will hear us and anyone else staying here.
We are two working parents who spend a decent amount of time with our kids commitments and working in our community. We are not always around and guests will often self check-in and check-out. If you are looking for ever-present hosts of a more classic B&B experience, we aren't it. Having said that, we are very reachable via text and will strive to get you any information or supplies ASAP. We are home nightly and want to be sure that you have a great stay with us in San Francisco.
About the Potrero Hill District
Potrero Hill is one of those wonderful, undiscovered neighborhoods in our iconic city. Relatively quiet and laid back, the residential streets are unusually clean (for San Francisco ; ), and every house seems to have a small garden, flower box or tree planted out front.
Potrero Hill also boasts some of the best weather in the bay area. On the Hill, you can relax in brilliant sunshine while watching fog engulf the rest of the city. The sunny weather lends itself to another of the Hill's main attractions: the view. Many streets in Potrero offer breathtaking panoramic views of the city and the bay.
Lastly, although Potrero is probably best described as "residential", recent development activities along the waterfront have ushered in a host of new restaurants and shops along the 18th Street corridor (2 blocks away) and in the nearby Dogpatch neighborhood (6 blocks away).
If you're looking to explore other parts of the city, the unit is just a 5 minute drive to downtown and is 2-3 blocks from major MUNI bus and train lines (Bus lines 22 and 10 are both within 3 blocks; the Third Street "T" line is less than a 10 minute walk; The 22nd Street Caltrain stop to other points on the Peninsula and San Jose is 2 blocks away). There's also easy access to Interstates 101 and 280 and reasonably easy, free street parking.
Other Things to Note
We want you to enjoy your visit to San Francisco. If you need advice of any kind or something for the apartment, just let us know. We want you to feel welcome and get the most out of San Francisco.
Absolutely, positively no smoking.
Quiet after 9pm. Reasonable noise is totally fine.
Please feel free to spend time in the backyard, but remain on the ground floor to respect our other guests' privacy.
