“Sweet Place”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2014

The apartment is in a great part of the city. Wonderful local neighborhood with good restaurants and fun shops. It was very clean. The owner gave us good tips about places to eat in the area. Comfortable living room and lots of space. Our only complaint was the queen bed mattress seemed on the worn out side of its life. We would stay there again.

Owner's reply: Mose, Thanks for your visit. All the mattresses are only 5 yrs old so I wouldn't think they need to be replaced so soon. I will have the cleaners turn and maybe flip the mattress to see if that helps. We bought very good mattresses so hope they are not bad already.

“Outstanding location, very accommodating”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2013

Three adults travelling together stayed in the bottom unit. Making the booking was easy, Tim provided all the information we needed and was very helpful and communicatios were always easy right up to checking in. The unit itself is clean and tidy with great ammenities and was very confortable for the three of us, would comfortably accommodate 6 - 8 adults. Protrero Hill is an outstanding location, warm and sunny with great local restuarants, cafes and markets. We were warmly welcomed and looked after by many locals in neighbouring bars and eating establishments. The unit is located very close to several transport options allowing easy access across San Francisco. Would definitely recommned.

Owner's reply: Thanks Matt, It was nice having you visit SF. If you ever need me to give a reference for you to rent any other places just let me know. I would be happy to rent to you again if you plan a return visit to San Francisco or Palm Springs CA. Tim

“A Wonderful Place to Stay!”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2008

This house is such a wonderful home away from home. It was much more spacious then we were expecting it to be and Tim was such a delight to work with. He responds very promptly to emails/phone calls and even provides additional emails about things to do in San Francisco, information about the city, etc. Tim goes above and beyond to ensure your stay is perfect. We had six girls who stayed in the upstairs three bedroom condo and there was more than enough room. The beds were super comfy and the place was extremely clean. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you so much, Tim!

“I left my heart in San Francisco....”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2008

One word; WOW! More words: What a great way to vacation in the city of San Francisco! There were four of us (had planned on six) in the upper, three-bedroom apartment. We were delighted to arrive in the Potrero Hill area---just off the freeway---and to have an off-street spot for our car. But the inside! Surprise, surprise! Spacious and gracious. Classy and sassy. Comfy and...well, that's enough of that. We felt completely at home and each arrival back after a day of walking or touring or shopping or whatever---each of those arrivals back was a treat--we each had a favorite spot to sip a glass of wine and enjoy the spectacular view. We cooked one night (Maman's Bistro is GREAT if you don't want to cook) and it was an easy well-equipped kitchen. T There were many little niceties--from the provided laptop and wireless connection, to the french-milled soaps and luxurious shampoos...would I go back again? in one beat of the heart I left in San Francisco!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

In the 100+ Bed and Breakfasts places and executive suites/apt's I have stayed in on my business travels, this is certainly in the top 5 best(if not the top). Don't let the modest exterior set your expectations as the inside of this place feels like a home with the designer's choices giving it just enough of a rich Victorian finish. In addition, the owners are truly wonderful people and are very willing to help with all of your requests/needs. I have traveled extensively as a business professional throughout the United States, Canada and Europe, this place is comfortable, clean, incredibly spacious, and the views are absolutely amazing. The fresh flowers and Josef Schmidt chocolates were added nice touches to welcome me to SF. The Protero neighborhood also unexpectedly housed many fine restaurants and cafes within walking distance. I give this place a 5 star rating.

Tim Thank you for your hospitality you have a wonderful place here- The views are spectacular and you have easy access to the city and Napa. 18 th St. is a treasure. It's like being in Europe- great shops & Bistros in walking of your place.
I highly recommend Aperto, Hazel's Kitchen, Chez Papa Bistro, and Mama's Bistro for Lunch, Farleys for coffee & Goat Hill Pizza For!..Pizza. If you need to do laundry there is a Wash & fold around the block. What else could you want.
Thanks for everything Bill
