A private apartment (no personal stuff) with private entrance for you to enjoy and make it a home away from home for your San Francisco trip.

The Space

A few fast-facts (we got these questions all the time, so here goes:)
Street parking, in front of the building and it is free of charge. Just make sure you don’t park during Street cleaning on Wednesdays from Noon-2.00pm.

There are a few grocery stores within a few blocks, the closest one being Chiotras Grocery, on Rhode Island & Southern Heights Avenue. You can get milk, cheese, sandwich, tea, coffee, etc. here.
The larger one is the Whole Foods, 5 blocks away, on Rhode Island & Mariposa Ave.

THERE IS NO AC in this unit: Houses and flats in San Francisco don't normally have AC. It's only warm a few days in a year :)

The Veranda Penthouse is a completely remodeled 1 BR/1BA Flat in Stylish Potrero Hill Neighborhood that has everything you need for your San Francisco visit. The Flat is located on the Top Floor of a 3 unit building.
The Bedroom has a King-sized Bed and there is a sleeper sofa in the Living Room for an additional guest.. Even though you have countless restaurants within 15 minutes’ walk, you have the option to enjoy meals at home in the Chef Kitchen equipped with all Brand New kitchen appliances. Washer/Dryer are also available for your convenience.
There is a brand new 42" High Definition SMART TV with local channels and Apps as well as Hi Speed Internet with Wi-Fi connection.
The spacious Bathroom has the state of the art shower complete with shampoo/shower gel and body lotion provided for you.

Interaction with Guests

We're here to help but also respect your privacy. So you have an option on how much or how little interaction you'd like to have with us :)

I check emails very frequently and respond quickly but not always available to answer calls. Therefore please call for emergency only - please dial twice within 3 minutes.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This apartment is great and super clean. The kitchen is excellent (we used it every day) and it has all what you would need. The bathroom has an awesome shower and the bedroom is really nice.
    If you are moving without a car, there are at least two bus stops (one at 20 m and the other at 3 blocks) that take you to the fisherman's wharf or downtown.
    The communication with the host was perfect and he always answered very fast.
    I definitely recommend this place if you are planning to visit SF.

  • The veranda penthouse was just gorgeous! Clean, modern, great view and great neighbourhood. Not to forget the awesome shower.

    I will definitely stay there again when I come visit SF next time!

  • My wife Lind and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay at "The Penthouse on Potrero Hill". The accommodations were wonderful, had everything we needed, loved the veranda, of course the views, the ease of having the muni bus service right out our front door, the ease of free parking, such close proximity to food stores, great local restaurants,the rec center and The Catholic Church just blocks away,

  • We enjoyed a week at the Veranda Penthouse. The apartment was fabulous very clean with all the amenities of home. The view from the apartment is amazing! Very quiet area. The location was ideal for us as we both enjoy walking. Close to the local transit. If you are looking for vacation spot with all the amenities of home we would highly recommend the Veranda Penthouse. Owners are extremely helpful and will assist you in anyway they can.

  • The check in worked very smoothly without key transfer but a code, so I could come at any time. Jojo was very helpful and always available and phone. Especially when all a sudden the fire alarm started during cooking my steak :). The apartment is modern furnished, clean, perfect in size and stuffed with everything I needed. I would stay there again when I come to SF.

  • I've lived in SF previously, and when back, I like to experience different neighbourhoods -- however, I think I may just come back to Jojo's Veranda Penthouse from now on.

    Super high up, lovely vistas, superb sunrises, and the apartment couldn't be more delightful. Every mod con, great for eating in (I baked cookies!) or going out.

    It's very hilly, and a 3 flight walk up, so be prepared (we were) - but super-convenient to downtown and to 101/280 if you need to get down to the Valley.

  • Beautiful views! The place was so immaculate you could eat off of the floors. Will definitely be coming back!!

  • Joanna was very responsive during the planning stage of our trip, which ensured we didn't worry a bit about our stay. We arrived two hours early due to our travel companions' schedule, and hoped we could drop off our bags before our afternoon adventures. Joanna was there finalizing some details; though she was surprised to see us early she was wonderful and welcomed us in - the two of us staying there, plus our four traveling companions! She was absolutely lovely and helpful, and then we were off to explore.

    The penthouse was beautiful - just as described and portrayed in the photos. The views were phenomenal. The shower was better than my boyfriend's shower at home, and he has a swanky set up! We had everything we needed (and more) for our six night stay.

    The 19 bus stop is a block and a half away, which is super convenient. The 33 is a bit more of a hoof but totally manageable. There are tons of cute and delicious restaurants in Potrero Hill (Chez Maman and Aptero in particular) and the Mission (you *must* try Lolo).

    We'll definitely be back!

  • We felt very much at home in this beautifully appointed one bedroom penthouse apartment. Contemporary furnishings, a HD xfinity flat screen TV, panoramic views of the town below from the living room and front veranda. Kitchen has updated appliances, the rain shower with additional jets is great. If you plan to cook meals, the kitchen is well equipped, but we could not find a cutting board.

    Jojo is quick to respond to any concerns. The day we wanted to use the grill in the back patio, the propane seemed to be empty. Jojo replaced the tank the next day.

    One important note: this property is a three story walk up with steep narrow steps. Also we were not prepared for how hilly and steep this Potrero Hill neighborhood is. Not a good walking neighborhood unless you are fit and prepared to walk long, extremely steep hills in every direction. However, if you rent a car, street parking is usually available out front.

    When we sent to Sonoma and stayed in a hotel, we missed this lovely, comfortable vacation rental quite a bit!

    October 2013
  • Great stay. Last minute booking and between Jojo's quick responses and the seamless entry directions, the place was a lifesaver. Very clean, amazing view on the deck, and lots of privacy.
