Potrero Hill is known for its excellent and diverse restaurant offerings, close proximity to downtown, to Caltrain and the airport, the and to the startups South of Market such as T w i t t e r, Airbnb, and TaskRabbit. Three minutes to Mission Bay's biotech community, 12 minutes (walking) to the Caltrain station. The (website hidden) shuttle is 2 blocks from here.
Buses and small trains to downtown nearby. Uber, Lyft, and regular taxis come quickly.
Lots of excellent restaurants and cafes 1 1/2 blocks away.

Parking is easiest with a small or compact car. Let me know if you're bringing a car so that I can advise you about street cleaning times and two hour areas, and the best spots to park.

Guest Access

There is a shared laundry room, and the shared garden where guests are welcome to enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine.

Interaction with Guests

I enjoy meeting my guests when they arrive, if possible, to say hi and get them oriented. Then they may relax and know they can get ahold of me if they need anything-- I live and work next door across the garden.

The Neighborhood

I love this neighborhood and my guests say the same thing. There are great restaurants and cafes nearby, the sunniest weather in all of San Francisco, and easy access to all parts of town. The people here are really nice too.

Getting around

There are buses and the trolly nearby, to downtown, or the Mission/ Castro/ Haight Ashbury and beyond.

The Getaway is a warm and inviting unit, very clean and well organized. My guests are always happy when they are here!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The space was awesome: clean, well appointed and very comfortable - plus, it's walking distance to great local shops and restaurants. We wished we could have stayed longer! And we LOVED the outdoor shower (there is a full indoor shower/ bath/ bathroom as well) - what a treat!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Garden Getaway! It is so comfortable and well stocked with things to make your visit enjoyable. The outdoor shower is awesome too! We had a great view of the city from our window, and But our favorite thing was Kepa's garden. It is so incredible, immaculate and relaxing. She is a very talented gardener and friendly host. We would definitely stay here again.

  • So due to a sudden death in the family, I was not able to make this trip. My colleague Kristen covered the conference instead. Kepa was gracious enough to transfer the reservation to Kristen. I talked to Kristen this morning who said the place was quiet and beautiful and that Kepa was a great host. Kristen biked to downtown one day and took a cab the other couple of days.

    Thanks for being so flexible, Kepa.

  • Always a 5 Star stay with Kepa!

  • Kepa is awesome. We spent an hour chatting over a beer about architecture and city planning. She continues to be the best host I've ever stayed with.

    June 2014
  • We had a great time staying at the Garden Getaway! It was exactly as described, very large, light and airy. The location is good, it's easy to get pretty much anywhere you'd like to go. We only met Kepa as we were leaving but she was lovely and let us keep our luggage safe for a few hours before our flight - a nice touch!

    We'd definitely stay again..

    June 2014
  • The place was wonderful and Kepa was such a lovely host! Her instructions were perfect and we found the place with no trouble at all. She was quick to answer any questions we had and was great at giving us tidbits such as where to grab some dinner (only walking distance away!). The place itself was very lovely, in particular we enjoyed the seating by the window where we had our morning tea while looking over the city. The garden was beautiful with the lights strung up. The highlight was getting to speak to Kepa and having a very charming conversation that included a bit about the interesting history and development of the place. Our only complaint is we didn't get to stay long enough to enjoy the place all the more. We'd love to visit again and hope any future guests appreciate this lovely place as much as we did!

    June 2014
  • Kepa was a great host - very welcoming and flexible throughout my stay. She was very responsive, and we had a few interesting conversations.

    The Garden Getaway where I stayed was just lovely. Quiet, clean, and homey - with wonderful artwork throughout. It was exactly what I was hoping for, and I will try to find another reason to stay again!

    June 2014
  • Very, very nice place to stay in San Francisco, lovely garden, a lot of space in the apartment and very clean and nice decorated. Kepa was a really nice host to us.
    Neighborhood is quite calm, with some nice restaurants to dine in very close to the house.
    It takes a bit long to be in the city center if you travel by public transportation but this is also part of the experience of the city.
    We would stay in any case by Kepa's again and recommend to everybody!

    June 2014
  • Amazing spot! I wish we could have stayed longer. It's got a beautiful garden/back yard, welcoming interior and an outdoor shower. Loved it :)
