SUNNY POTRERO HILL - 2BD WITH PARKING - PERFECT TOURIST BASE

Potrero Hill Condo Rental Photos and Description

Modern Renovated Flat - 2 Master Bedroom / 2 Full Bathroom

**The Potrero Home**

Come and stay in my 2BR 2BA home for your next visit. I bought it and then put in extensive renovation to provide a high-tech modern experience for myself - which you get to benefit from.

Features wood floors, new carpet, breakfast bar, high-end furniture, stainless steel appliances, large bedrooms, walk-in closets, 58' 3D HDTV, and wifi internet.

Ok, I'm being honest about your SF visit....Parking in the city is NOT fun!! There might be street parking...but don't get caught on the day they do street cleaning which is different on every street. Tickets are NOT fun.

That's why I bought THIS property - it comes with 1 dedicated parking spot in a safe underground garage. Great to use for shopping trips (shopping!!) and to see outside the city like Napa, Monterey, and more…

When you don't need your car, it's the perfect easy location to walk in and around the city. Less than 5 minutes to stores, bars, restaurants, public transit....

**The Potrero Condos**

The apartment was built in 2007, so really modern style and architecture. The apartments are well insulated for sound from your neighbors and retaining the heat.

Need to see a tree? No problem...There is plenty of landscaping in central mews and garden courtyards that let you bask in the sun in silence whilst the city bustle surrounds you. And parks within walking distance in all directions.

Are you active and fit? Plenty to do outside, but maybe it's just 1 member of your group or it's raining, or you want that specific weight equipment. No need to find a gym or pay....The Potrero has a 24/7 gym on-site. Cardio, Weights, and Pilates equipment ready to go. Sweet!

Do you want to just have a glass of wine and watch the sunset? Head up to the rooftop deck where the view of the city is as vast and brilliant as the stars above. Remember to take your camera though as you will want to share the view with friends to make them jealous.

**The Potrero Hill Location**

If the measure of a neighborhood is the neighbors, Potrero Hill has it in the bag.

Take a stroll down Mariposa Street and breathe the sweet aroma of malt and hops. That’s Anchor Brewing Co., a very popular neighbor since 1979. They do free tours (and sampling for ages 21+) but book early on their website as it's a hot trend right now.

At Connecticut and 18th, Goat Hill Pizza’s sourdough crust is the stuff of legend. Make it a Monday and it’s all you can eat.

Is it music you want? No self-respecting rocker comes through San Francisco without hitting the Bottom of the Hill – no address necessary.

Along bustling streets, you’ll find cafes and restaurants, galleries and theaters, watering holes and wine shops…and a family neighborhood nestled in between.

Young and old, first and third generation, all are welcome in Potrero Hill.

TOP NOTCH!

  • 5 of 5
What A Condo!! Luxurious, inviting and well appointed. The quality is evident everywhere; linens, dishware, furnishings all topped off with a HUGE television in the lvg room that gets every movie channel! The personal "bellhop" that meets you at the door to walk you into your "home away from home" makes you feel very pampered and special. No need to worry about the hows and whys of a new place and keys because he explains it all. Very nice fellow that answered all our questions before arrival as well as during. Lucy, the owner, is also unbelievably helpful and quick to respond to any needs or questions. The condo is very convenient to the airport and to the city. The underground private parking place next to Whole Foods is invaluable! In other peoples reviews I read only 2 negatives that I would like to address. 1. air conditioning- indeed you won't find AC in most San Fran hotels and homes. The condo keeps quite cool even during the quite unseasonably warm week that we were lucky enough to have. The fantastic fan is really all you need. 2. noise- yes, there is a little noise in the living room if you have the window open when Whole Foods is closing. It's a city, close the window for 10 minutes! On the upside you're on top of a Whole Foods which we found deliciously convenient. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the Bay area!!

5+ STARS FOR THIS HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed with my husband and college age son for five nights in this fabulous condo. It was truly a home away from home. This spacious apartment had everything, music, TV, kitchen, parking, and laundry. The home is very well appointed, modern and uncluttered. Two bedrooms and two baths make for a relaxing stay. The complex also has two gyms which we utilized daily. At street level is a Whole Foods Market that made grocery shopping easy. There are plenty of restaurants in walking proximity as well.

More importantly, the owners were 5+ stars. Nigel and Lucy's hospitality is truly the icing on the cake here. They arranged for a concierge, Kevin, to meet us on site and answer any question that we had about the condo, complex, and city. Additionally, Nigel checked in with us during our stay to ensure that everything was going well. Communication was excellent from booking through deposit refund.

We look forward to returning to this wonderful home.

EXCELLENT BASE IN SAN FRANCISCO

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful holiday for 9 days over Christmas/New Years Day. The apartment is very nice and just as it looks in the pictures. It is well stocked. The location is convenient, especially if you have a car so it was great that a parking spot came with the apartment. The Wholefoods downstairs also was extremely convenient.
Potrero Hill is a charming neighborhood. We tried several restaurants nearby (Sushi Live, Goat Hill Pizza, Papito's) and all were good. It was great that they were within walking distance.
My husband works out every day so the fitness room in the building was great. But it is a bit tricky to find so if you plan to use it, ask the urban bellhop to take you there rather than just describing how to get there.
Nigel kept in touch and was extremely responsive even though it was during the holidays. I highly recommend this apartment and would consider staying here again if we return to San Francisco.

GREAT LOCATION AND GREAT OWNERS!!

  • 5 of 5
This place has absolutely everything you could want. Having a big screen TV, Netflix, and Hulu was a huge bonus for us. The owners, Nigel and Lucy, we're wonderful and began helping us plan our trip and sightseeing destinations as soon as we reserved their place.

When we arrived, we were greeted by Urban Bellhop Chris, who was very knowledgable about the apartment and also about the city. He gave us some great recommendations on food gems in the city!

I completely disagree with the review posted by Nora N. The apartment itself is very clean and organized. The "leftover food" she mentioned is actually coffee grounds, pancake mix, spices, etc that are left in the pantry for guests to use. I have to say...we found these items to be huge help when we were cooking.

And I really disagree with the comment about the owners not allowing heat. The week we were there was an unseasonably cold period, and not only did we use the excellent heating in the apartment, but Nigel even offered to courier over some extra heaters if the central heating wasn't good enough (it was...so we didn't need to take Nigel up on his offer).

If you're looking for a place that's central to everything, and provides great service and value, then you should definitely stay here.

PRETTY SHABBY FOR THE $$.

  • 1 of 5
1) 'Welcomed' by a gal who knew absolutely nothing about the property, how to operate any of the appliances or TV; and she arrived late. And she didn't know how to get us into the garage.
2) The apartment could use a good clean: carpets dirty, food areas with lots of 'left overs'; the dishwasher was not emptied and was full of dishes, and there were dirty utensils in the drawers. That said, there was a Very unpleasant smell of cleaning liquids on arrival. The clothes dryer was going when we arrived and was packed with towels and sheets. No one offered to fold them or put away. So we had to.
3) Way too many personal items (photos, knick-knacks) in the apartment for our taste, and likely for anyone else's. Pretty dodgy furnishings: a 'dining table' plopped in the living room which looks like it belongs in a dorm room.
4) Living room curtain doesn't close properly so you are exposed to a rather unpleasant street scene, at nearly eye level.
5) Owner states they do NOT want any occupants to use the heat in the apartment, Ever! There is no heat provided in the building. SF can get chilly.
6) If you are looking for the charm of SF, you will not find it here.

Owner's Response: We welcome feedback from all guests, the good, the bad and the ugly. We take great pride in our home and strive to make each guests experience the best possible. Sadly, this particular guest was very unpleasant, unapologetically demanding and downright abusive to our Urban BellHop check-in service. So much so that we almost had to deny her entry to the property, unfortunately, we decided to honor her stay and for that I am truly regretful. We have spoken with the Home Away and VRBO leadership team and recommended that this individual not be allowed to rent from other property owners. We really do not wish someone else to have to go through the experience we had with this particular guest.

All that said; we encourage all future guests to please take a look at our previous reviews to get a more representative opinion of our home and what to expect. We try to be extremely responsible owners and have accommodated many requests from our prior guests to make our home more comfortable for our global travelers. So rather than respond to the unfounded negativity this guest has chosen to leave us with. We will instead make a donation to the SF Food Bank Foundation from the money received from her stay and let karma take care of the rest.

Sincerely,

Nigel & Lucy (Home Owners)

GREAT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Very nice place, well equipped and furnished. The owners even leave food, which they invite you to eat. I needed to call Urban Bellhop to repair a closet door and change light bulbs, but that was taken care of promptly. We definitely plan to rent it again.

Potrero Hill is one of the sunniest neighborhoods in San Francisco. It's a residential / urban mix location with restaurants, bars, parks within 2 blocks. A perfect home base for touring the city sites with a bus line, CalTrain, and Bart all within 5-10 min walking distance. Oh and 1 block away is the Anchor Steam brewery, starting in the Gold Rush era, and offering tours to the public.
