The perfect place for your home away from home! Beautifully and comfortably decorated, you may find that you'll simply want to "stay home" once you arrive.
Welcome to the Garden Getaway- a suite of rooms in the heart of San Francisco's sunniest neighborhood. My property was 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 days spent 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) under 18 years old and no pets. I will be here to help you as you get acquainted with San Francisco.
Thank you for helping to insure a quiet environment for all of us.
I look forward to sharing my home and garden.
There is a living room (sorry NO SLEEPING for a separate or extra guest on the couch), a bedroom behind the French doors, a small tropical atrium, and a large bathroom with tub/ shower. No cooking: I offer a "Coffee Bar" with coffee maker, local coffee, tea maker, tea selection, microwave, toaster and small fridge which is perfect for a quick breakfast, snack, or leftovers. Enjoy the local Anchor Steam Beer in your refrigerator! The room is designed for one or two adults to share the full bed, two adults maximum thanks, no kids (no infants/ toddlers/ children or teenagers) under 18 years old, and no pets or smoking, no parties.
The Garden Getaway is perfect for business travel or vacationing. Enjoy the beautiful garden where many lush plants welcome you to a hidden oasis.

Lots of excellent restaurants and cafes 1 1/2 blocks away.

Sorry no kids or pets, and no smoking.
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.
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'll be here.
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.
There are buses and the trolley nearby, to downtown, or the Mission/ Castro/ Haight Ashbury, the Ferry Building, downtown and beyond.
Other Things to Note
The Getaway is a warm and inviting, and very clean and well organized. My guests are always happy when they are here!
This is a listing for mature folks.
NO pets, no kids (no infants/ toddlers/ children or teenagers) under 18 years old, no smoking, two adults maximum per room, quiet is very much appreciated as other guests may be arriving with jet lag and sleeping odd times.
PARKING: If you plan on bringing a car please tell me ahead of time so that I can explain to you where you can park on the street to avoid a ticket. Please try to rent an Economy or Compact car-- spaces can be tight otherwise.
Thanks you for not blocking my neighbors' driveways even for a moment-- it's a point of concern for me as they will be very upset!
My stay at the Getaway was super quick--I was in and out for a business trip--but it was exactly what I needed. Kepa was extremely helpful, responsive, and all the information was super clear so that my stay was totally stress-free.
The place was very private and quiet, but walking distance to great places to eat, which Kepa did a great job leaving recommendations on in my room.
I wish I could have stayed longer to enjoy it more fully!
Kepa is a wonderful and welcoming host who was there to greet us upon our arrival. The Garden Getaway is nicely decorated, clean and comfortable and totally lives up to the photos. Kepa generously shares her beautiful courtyard garden with her guests and we enjoyed spending time there. The neighborhood has views of the city, it's convenient to public transportation and there are several small cafes and stores nearby. We would highly recommend staying at the Garden Getaway and we will probably do so again in the future.
The unit was exactly as advertised. Light filled, spacious apartment with a very comfortable bed. The courtyard/garden area is beautiful and lovingly kept. Kepa was a warm, friendly host. Altogether this was an excellent stay.
The house is so sweet and the bed is very comfortable. Everything is perfect ! We had a really good time there. We wish to live here if we come to SF again.
The stay with Kepa was absolutely magical. Kepa is such a warm, engaging and accommodating host. It was such a pleasure to get to spend time with her. She has the most beautiful garden oasis I have ever seen. From the moment you walk into her home, a sense of calm sets in, which is a hard feeling to come by in the bustling city. The Garden Getaway is cozy and has all the amenities you need. Kepa's thought of everything. Once you get here, you will never want to leave - sitting outside, under the stars in her garden is the best place to be in SF. Thank you for such an incredible stay. I cannot wait to come back again!
Kepa's place was by far the best Airbnb experience I have ever had! This was an extended day, making it a week long stay in total. Walking into this space really felt like home to me. I really appreciated the small details that she had, such as the armoire with bathrobs inside, easy access to the ironing board and extra towels, and the outdoor shower! Everything was really clean, it looks exactly like the pictures shown. One of my favorite features of this space is her amazing garden! It is filled with so many interesting plants and succulents, you can tell she really put a lot of love into every aspect of her home. Kepa was also a great and caring host, she was there to help me when I wasn't feeling well. It was nice to know that she is only a few doors away in case I needed anything.

Thank you for considering staying with me during your visit to San Francisco. Whether you're coming for business, pleasure, or to visit family, I think you will enjoy my rooms and my neighborhood.
You can see me with Katie Couric of (website hidden) news in the third picture- when she came over and interviewed me about being an Airbnb host, and took a tour of the Cabana and the garden.
I've been here in San Francisco and in Potrero Hill since 1978, and I can help you figure out what to do and how to get around. I've had construction and design businesses all my life and I'm enjoying adding Airbnb hosting to my daily routine. I've travelled quite a bit and enjoy having the world come to me!
