Potrero Hill House Rental Photos and Description

Large Home, 3 BR, 3 BA, 5 Decks/Balconies

Enjoy San Francisco's sunniest neighborhood, Potrero Hill, in this luxurious and charming 3-story Mediterranean style retreat. 5 patios/decks all with amazing views even from the always ready hot tub.

This spacious three-story, three-bedroom home and its five patios and balconies feature stunning views of Twin Peaks, Downtown, East Bay, and AT&T Park. The house is set away from the street with a gracious front patio/garden and is very quiet.

Potrero Hill is not only known for its sun but also easy access to the hot Mission District, AT&T Park, and Downtown - all are walkable and the area is well served by city transit.

Don't miss soaking in the outdoor Hot Tub: great views to Twin Peaks, Downtown, and even the top of the Golden Gate Bridge. It is always hot and ready for your enjoyment.

The main (2nd) floor's open floor plan provides a spacious living room, dining area, and gourmet kitchen with everything you might need to serve up a feast. A separate office/sitting area opens to the sheltered and unique front patio and garden. This floor also offers an additional full bathroom with bathtub and shower.

The French doors in the large Master Bedroom suite open to the garden and hot tub. The large room includes a King Bed, large TV with cable and Apple TV service. After your hot tub enjoy the large two-headed shower in the master bath.

Upstairs (3rd floor) you'll love the two large bedrooms on either side of the large sky-lit bathroom.

The West-facing bedroom features a balcony with fabulous views of Twin Peaks and Downtown. The large bedroom includes queen bed, desk, TV with cable TV, and large closet.

The East-facing bedroom features a queen bed, desk, and closet. Off the bedroom is a very large sunny deck with views of Twin Peaks to the west, the East Bay, and AT&T Park. The deck also has a new Weber gas grill and patio furniture for your dining pleasure.

Guests have commented on the comfort of the beds and the terrific showers. I take care to ensure that the rooms are fresh and clean - good linens, comfortable pillows, and nice towels.

There is an additional sleeping area (if your group is large) in front sitting room with comfy queen air mattress.

Amenities include gourmet and well-stocked kitchen, washer and dryer, and exercise room with spin bike, TRX, TV/Apple TV and light weights.

This home is fully furnished and accessorized with Southwestern flair.

Sitting between highways 101 and 280, access to the rest of the city and the entire Bay Area is easy. Plenty of public transit including the Muni 9 and 19 lines as well as easy access to BART. Uber and Lyft provide convenient and less expensive access. I provide every guest with a guide to the neighborhood, discount codes, and can try to answer any question you might have on the neighborhood and San Francisco.

Street parking is plentiful and does not require a permit. Garage parking can be negotiated for guests with more compact cars.

About Fran

I returned to the Potrero Hill area of San Francisco after living in the East Bay for nearly 20 years. I've always loved this part of San Francisco and so pleased to own this Mediterranean home. I left Santa Fe NM (where I have another rental property) to attend Stanford University and have lived in the Bay Area since.

I'm a veteran of several Internet start-ups most notably and TRUSTe (privacy solutions). I rent my home when I travel on business or vacation or visit my other home in Santa Fe. I also rent rooms in my house through Airbnb.

Fran purchased this house in 2011

Why Fran chose Potrero Hill

Location, Views, Location, Luxury. This house is both luxurious and comfortable, drop dead views and everyday comfort. Close to the airport, freeways, Downtown and walking distance (yes the hills are steep) to ATT Park, the hot Mission District and nearby restaurants and pubs. Lots to explore including the true crookedest street in San Francisco (Vermont), Anchor Steam Brewery, and many hot spots in the Mission, Potrero or Dog Patch

What makes this house unique

Decks and Views, Casual Luxury, Quiet in the heart of San Francisco

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was our first time to use vacation rentals and it became excellent experience that we will definitely repeat. Fran was easily accessible with any questions and requests that we had before our arrival and after as well. The interior was tastefully decorated for entertaining or relaxing and our daughters loved it very much. We even wanted to extend our stay! We parked our car just in front of the house which was really convenient too. So glad that we found Fran’s house. We love to come back again.

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in San Francisco and we loved it (OK my wife wasn't keen on the hills). The house was far enough from the main city to be peaceful, but close enough (on public transport) to make sightseeing easy.

My now husband and I rented this beautiful home for our elopement in San Francisco (beautiful San Francisco City Hall). Everything was perfect, we loved the detail and the owners taste in decorating. We felt as if we were in our own home. from the gardens and paintings not to mention the hot tub view and views from bedrooms were splendid. We would definitely recommend this home and would rent it again in a heartbeat. We rented a car fora few days, used Uber another couple of days and took advantage of having so much close by that we spent another 2 days walking, it was simply amazing!!!

Thank you so much Fran!!

SF trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in San Francisco with the house as our home base. Public transportation was just a block away and a direct line to fisherman's wharf and the cable cars. Plenty of street parking and so quiet at night. Also great to have a dip in the hot tub after a long day of sightseeing. Fran has the house stocked with everything you could possibly need. Would rent again in a heartbeat.

Fabulous Views, Quiet Neighborhood, Perfect San Fran Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully furnished home with spectacular views of the city. Very comfortable for us and teen sons. Appreciated use of kitchen, hot tub and other amenities. Walking distance to grocery and restaurants, but not to attractions. (We used Uber and never waited more than 4 mins for a car, so transportation was easy. Plenty of parking if you have a car.) Very quiet at night!

Also appreciated the owner's house information and sightseeing guide. Lots of helpful information and answers to all of our questions. We would definitely stay at this house again - highly recommend!

Winter Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying in this house for our winter break and New Year's Eve/day. Myself, my husband and our children, ages 4 and 6, along with my brother and his fiancé stayed there and there was tons of room! The sweeping view of the city from the front and back of the house, the hot tub in the back, the amazing decor throughout the house all added to the charm of the city. The house was just a couple minutes to everywhere we wanted to be in the city, but had the bonus of being in a very quiet neighborhood. We highly recommend staying here!
