This is a very comfortable suite of rooms with an art collection. The art collection has been put together over 40 plus years and has been assembled from around the globe. The collection features American and European art pottery, Art Deco objects, illuminated sculptures and a vast array of reference books. The collection of Louis Wain Futurist cats is the largest in America.
The neighborhood. We are located on the north slope of the Potrero Hill neighborhood. From this location you are a one-block walk up to 18th street where you will find 5 restaurants on the 4 corners. The next three blocks down 18th street have 7 additional places to eat a bookstore, wine shop, espresso café with huge magazine selections, a mailing store, a Laundromat, a great local bar with an amazing view of the city and a massage/ chiropractic clinic.
Two blocks up on 20th you will find a great organic grocery store, liquor store, library, coffee shop and stunning views of downtown SF and the bay. You are walking distance to Dog Patch, another neighborhood with wonderful food and shops. Downtown is a 15 minute walk. We are a block from 2 bus stops. Easy street parking. The Potrero Hill neighborhood is accessed by both Highway 101 and 280 so access in from the airport is an easy 12 minutes. If you are going to the East Bay, your access to the Bay Bridge is excellent. If you are heading south down the coast you are 6 blocks from the S-280 on ramp and in 13 minutes you are at the ocean.
This is a 1892 Victorian. The rooms that the Suite occupy are in their original trim and finish. The rooms have 11-foot ceilings with great east and south light. The 4-story home was split into two condo’s in 1983. We occupy the bottom two stories and friends occupy the top two. We have been in the house since 1986 and can’t imagine a better place to be. The furnishing and surroundings are contemporary and eclectic. If you are interested we are happy to take you through the collection.
The suite has a queen size bed with memory foam mattress ( a single sleeper is available for 3rd person.) There is central heat in the gallery and sleeping room plus electric heat in the bathroom. The newly remodeled tree house bathroom has a double sink with views of downtown and our koi pond. There is a bath/shower combo and toilet. The verdant plant life in our yard reaches up above the bathroom windows and creates a tree house feel. There is a porch just off the bathroom where you can sit and enjoy the yard we call a jungle. We have a microwave, mini fridge, toaster and electric kettle. We do not offer any formal cooking facilities. The gallery room has cable TV with HBO, CineMax and Showtime. There is also free WiFi. We have an 11 PM noise curfew. Our bed room is directly below the suites and the old Victorian resonates sound from the top down. Talking in normal tones and watching TV is fine - Rates and booking: We charge $160 per-night (taxes included) with a 2-night minimum stay. To reserve a room we accept a deposit via PayPal or personal check. The balance of your charge can be covered by check, cash or PayPal. We do not accept credit cards. Your deposit will be refunded if you cancel 2 weeks before the date of your stay.
Other: The house has a family in the upper condo, my family on the first floor and we have a small dog and ancient cat that will be in the yard and most certainly greet you when you return from a day out. This rental has a non-smoking and no pets policy. We don’t recommend this as place to rent if you wish to have a party or gathering of more than a few friends.
My wife and I are San Franciscans; we know the city and are very happy to help you plan any local trips. Our favorite sport is eating so we are very familiar with the myriads of restaurants in the bay area and can recommend many.
