Emily is a San Francicso native, biologist/environmental activist. Dan is a software entrepreneur. We are both semi-retired. We live in the house where Emily was born and raised, which is next door to the rental.
When we moved back into my wife's home, we built the rental house for parents, family and friends. It was custom designed to take advantage of the views and to make guests comfortable and happy. Now we have decided to open the house for others to enjoy as well.
Potrero Hill is our home. We enjoy the quiet, the warmest weather in SF, the instant access to freeways and public transit, the proximity to Downtown, the Embarcadero, and the Mission District, and the many parks and gardens (some with panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin, and NW SF). The Hill offers a wide array of local independent shops and gourmet restaurants, all minutes from our home.
This house on Portreo Hill was perfect for our San Fran getaway. Close in- but away from city congestion. Views abound, lush grounds and transit right out front. Parking spot a huge plus. The house is well appointed and tasteful and sunny! Owners were great to work with. We will be recommending to our friends & family and would rent again.
Dan was wonderful to work with, answered e-mails quickly. This was a perfect location for our stay as we needed to make several trips to UCSf mission bay. Parking spot was right in front of the house for our a rental car. Easy access to grocery stores as well as a gym close by. The house was well supplied with cookware and everything else you could possible need for cooking including all the spices you could possible need as well laundry soap,tp, Kleenex, paper towels and more. The bed was super comfortable and a great place for my partner to recover. VERY quiet and safe neighborhood. I highly recommend this property. I have stayed at many VRBO, this one is definitely on my top 5 list.
perfect location for our needs. every possible amenity. NO issues and everything as represented. this is the gold standard for VRBO.
A wonderful , well-equipped and maintained property , perfect location and very business-like and gracious owners make this a perfect place for a couple. We will absolutely rent there again
Lovely, airy, spacious apartment on top of Portero Hill equipped with everything a traveler might need. Wonderful spot for cooking and entertaining, with incredible views of downtown, Bay Bridge and the Oakland hills. Comfortable bed and a shower with a view on the lower level again with plenty of light. Very convenient to Whole Foods and the great restaurants on 18th street. Highly recommend.
This is a truly incredible gem in Potrero. I used to live in the same neighborhood, and staying in this place truly felt like coming home. A bottle of wine in the fridge on arrival, and everything else set up just perfectly. It was the perfect place to reconnect with the neighborhood and the city, and combine work and vacation. I was ready to move in!
The hosts went above and beyond to be helpful, and worked with our late arrival, and helping with packages that were delivered.
I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
