San Francisco House Rental Photos and Description

Convenient to Moscone, ATT Park, SoMa, and Mission Districts

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 room can be transformed to a fourth bedroom for larger parties with comfy queen air mattress.

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 rent my home when I travel on business or vacation or visit my other home in Santa Fe.

Fran purchased this house in 2011

Why Fran chose San Francisco

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.

The best stay we've ever had in San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

I can say without hesitation that this is the best place to stay in San Francisco. We went with our family of five, three boys and my wife. When we arrived into Potrero Paradise it was immaculately cared for and decorated. It truly is a home away from home. My suggestion is that you take the opportunity to read her description and her recommendations and you will not be disappointed. This is your home, look no furhter. Thank you again to Fran for your home and hospitality. Ernie

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I've secured a lodging experience in this manner and I can say it's a little awkward in the beginning making sure you find a place that will meet the needs of your stay but also represent the pictures you are seeing online. If anything, I'd say the pictures don't do justice to the beauty of this home. Everything met our needs and more. If you're looking for a place to party this is not the place and anyone who stays here should take care of this home. The back area was perfect for lounging and the hot tub was easily accessible. The rooms all had comfortable beds and with 3 full bathrooms, it makes for easy prep times to get ready to go out.

This is a home that you respect because of its warmth with beautiful artwork and worldly artifacts. Easy to get around and the home owner had plenty of information setup to make the stay as easy as possible. There are a lot of asks and rules but wouldn't you if you had a home like this? The views are wonderful and the neighborhood is quiet which is nice to back to after a night on the town.

I would definitely stay here again if I needed a place to stay in the city is a group of people. Fran was accommodating and let us drop our stuff off a little early before check-in and never had any issues with communication. She even left a wine magazine because she knew we were going to Napa for the day.

It really is a little paradise in SF!

Potrero Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to San Francisco and staying at Fran's house was perfect for our family of five. It was set up wonderfully with several outdoor areas to sit and enjoy the beautiful views of the city. The hot tub was amazing! The neighborhood is so peaceful and quiet with several restaurants within walking distance. Whole Foods is nearby as well. I would highly recommend Fran's house to anyone wanting a lovely, comfortable place to stay while in San Francisco. She was very easy to work with from beginning to end.

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.

You may notice that VRBO started charging service fees to guests.
