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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I always stay there when in San Francisco, like staying with a friend, but with privacy for each. And each unit has a different sensibility so I move around. Everything there set out from the guest's perspective--you will find the wifi password in all the places you would logically expect to find it, you don't need help to turn anything on (like cable), there are ample towels, and tissue--have just never found I was without anything that I needed, or forgot. Great neighborhood also. My 21 year old even fell in love with Kepa!

  • Great stay in a clean bright 1-bedroom. Kepa happened to be coming home right when I arrived and we had a lovely conversation. She gave me the tips on the local restaurants which are a quick 1 1/2 blocks away. Portrero is the sunniest part of the city and a quick 5 minute walk to my office, so it's the perfect place to stay for me. I'll be back!

    March 2014
  • Kepa was extremely nice and informative! She even met up with us when we initially arrived and that made us feel even more welcome. Her place is great and very convenient to go around the whole city. Thanks again Kepa!

    February 2014
  • I cannot recommend Kepa's getaway highly enough. It manages to strike the perfect balance between being quintessentially san franciscan (the bay windows and classic bathroom style) while still providing some unique touches that are hard to find in the city (the outdoor shower and immaculate garden). Kepa was an incredible host, quick with an excellent recommendation and truly interested in her Guests' experiences. I spent most of my time there sending messages to my wife about how excited I was to come back and share with her this wonderful place.

    February 2014
  • Kepa is just so efficient and the place is lovely --- easy parking and v close to Dogpatch and the coolest parts of SF

    February 2014
  • The Garden Getaway was really lovely -- a true oasis in the city! The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable. And it came with great internet. The spare toiletries in the bathroom were a nice, homey touch. The garden itself was tranquil and lovely. I hope to come back when it's not so rainy and enjoy that and the outdoor shower more.

    Kepa was great as well -- immediately available when I had trouble with the lock box and very helpful in recommending restaurants and taxi services.

    Would not hesitate to recommend or stay again!

    February 2014
  • My parents stayed at Kepa's while they were visiting and had a fantastic time. This is what they had to say:

    "We just arrived home in Wisconsin from a fantastic AirB&B run by Kepa on 157th Missouri Ave. San Francisco. I definitely would recommend this charming home away from home. We had very clean accommodations, beautiful outdoor gardens, and an extremely friendly host. I would stay here again, it was very easy location to our daughter and we felt that all the things that were offered went beyond the normal expectations of a 5 star hotel. We had a super comfortable bed, small kitchen to make coffee in the morning with snacks provided. Also the AirB&B offered maps and recommendations of restaurants in the area. I was very, very pleased."

    February 2014
  • A great studio at the base of Potrero Hill. Kepa's architectural background is evident from the moment you walk in the door. The layout of the complex is beautiful, and this studio is bright, immaculately clean, very well furnished and extremely comfortable. I immediately felt at home, and Kepa's attention to detail and care for her guests is evident.

    January 2014
  • The Garden Getaway was the perfect landing spot for my work trip. It was homey while also being immaculately clean and stylishly furnished — a restive retreat within walking distance of our Portrero offices, and many great bars and restaurants. Kepa was immediately responsive and helpful throughout my stay from booking to check-out. I find myself coming up with reasons to visit our SF offices just to stay here again!

    January 2014
  • Staying with Kepa at the Garden Getaway was an absolute delight. I was there for five nights and could have cheerfully stayed much longer. The rooms are spacious, airy and light, sleeping came easily on a very good bed, and all of my needs were anticipated before I ever walked in the door. Easy access to the lovely outdoor garden in the back of the property, and ample parking in the area (two hour limits on the street during the day, but that was quite manageable). The location is in walking distance of a Whole Foods and lots of restaurants, so there were no issues around finding something or somewhere to eat. Kepa is a wonderful and available host, very respectful of one's privacy but responsive, resourceful and helpful on pretty much any subject you can come up. She loves her neighborhood and San Francisco, and greatly enjoys sharing both with her guests. I recommend this location and host highly, and will go straight back to Kepa's the next time I need a place to stay in the Bay Area.
