SAN FRANCISCO SHORT-TERM RESIDENTIAL RENTAL REGISTRATION NUMBER: STR: OOOO852

Possession of a San Francisco Short-Term Rental Registration Certificate certifies that the registration certificate holder has agreed to comply with the terms of the San Francisco Short-Term Residential Rental Ordinance (San Francisco Administrative Code Section 41A). This ordinance does not require an inspection of the unit by the City for potential Building, Housing, Fire, or other Code violations.

*************************************************

A private, quiet, comfortable flat in the heart of up-and-coming Dogpatch--a funky, arty, real San Francisco neighborhood with a distinctively urban point of view. Easy access to all SF has to offer including great coffee and restaurants, without the hustle and bustle of downtown crowds and chaos.

Enter through the front lobby of a stately Victorian home into a peaceful, private flat. Beautifully appointed and comfortable, the apartment opens into your own patio leading to a shared, verdant garden oasis. The suite is on the ground floor of an owner-occupied 3-level home situated in the sunniest part of San Francisco— the Historic Dogpatch neighborhood of Eastern Potrero Hill, just minutes from all the Bay Area has to offer.

Completely furnished with linens, blankets, towels, and kitchenware, the flat has a comfortable living/dining room simply decorated in a modern, relaxed style including original artwork. PLEASE NOTE: there is NO TELEVISION in the unit, but with wireless access, movies and TV can be accessed through your laptop, if desired.

The fully equipped kitchen has new high-quality cookware, utensils and appliances, including an electric stove and oven, fridge, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, blender, juicer and food processor. The intimate bedroom features a king-size bed with a new custom mattress and pure cotton linens. The bathroom has a shower over tub. Every room has adjustable dimmer lights. 3MBPS Wi-Fi internet access and adjustable baseboard heating are all included.

Ideal as a hotel alternative for vacationing or business, the very convenient location is 1/2 block from 22nd Street's growing assortment of restaurants and coffee shops including Piccino and Serpentine, and just down the hill from Potrero Hill’s 18th Street shops and restaurants (including Turkish, Vietnamese, Sushi, French Bistro, Pizza & Mexican) plus a bakery, wine bar, groceries and laundry. We're located two blocks from the bay, where the Blue-Greenway bike route traces the water's edge 1/2 mile to the Embarcadero downtown, then out to Fisherman's Wharf--and for ambitious riders, to Crissy Field Park which leads over the Golden Gate Bridge.

TRANSPORTATION & PARKING: We are a 3 minute walk to the TK-3rd tram line 20th street stop to downtown, as well as the 22 bus line that travels up to the top of Potrero Hill and directly into the Mission, then to the Fillmore and the Marina. Downtown is 5 minutes by car via two nearby freeways (101 and 280). PARKING: There is ample street parking after 5PM and daytime parking is 2-hour in front of this address, though all-day street parking can usually be found close by. Daily guest parking passes for all-day street parking on our street are available in the flat for $10 a day.

*We are 12 minutes by car or taxi from San Francisco International Airport.*

CANCELLATION POLICY: Final payment may also be made upon arrival, by cash or check--simply let us know what you prefer. Rates are subject to change until reservation is confirmed. Please note that cancellations are accepted with a 100% refund, minus a $20 admin fee, up until 1 month before the reservation date. After that, the deposit will be refunded (again, minus the $20 admin fee), if the apartment is re-booked.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a non-smoking house and property.

Sorry, no pets.

Rate based on 1-2 person occupancy, minimum 2-night rental.

About Katherine Doumani

A native Californian and Jersey girl, we have lived in Dogpatch for almost two decades. We are actively involved in our community and love sharing it's charms with visitors, friends and family.

Why Katherine Doumani chose Potrero Hill

Dogpatch is a funky, arty, real San Francisco neighborhood with a distinctively urban and rapidly changing industrial point of view. Easy access to all SF has to offer including great coffee and restaurants, without the hustle and bustle of downtown crowds and chaos.

What makes this apartment unique

Dogpatch, on the eastern edge of Potrero Hill, just south of the Giants Ballpark, is one of the oldest neighborhoods in San Francisco. Made of up charming Victorian cottages and historic warehouses, it is a hip multi-use area with a growing restaurant scene. Bustling by day and quiet at night and on weekends, the T-third tram to downtown is around the corner and the airport is a 12 minute, $30 cab ride away.

A really wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Jared and Katherine's garden flat is an absolute delight, and is so very well furnished, equipped and provisioned. It is comfortable, quiet and secluded whilst being part of Jared and Katherine's own main home. We had privacy yet always felt able to contact the hosts with any queries should the need arise - which was never the case due to the excellent provision of information in the Guest Information Book. The get-in procedure if Jared and Katherine were not around at the time, was simplicity itself. During our stay in Dogpatch we enjoyed the luxury and comfort of the flat. The kitchen was so well equipped that one could have prepared all meals in the flat during the stay but, given the great number of great eating places in the immediate area, it's probably best to sample these in preference. As visitors from the UK we did not drive during our visit. Instead we walked and walked around the local areas, and then used the local Muni service from 20th Street to Folsom to reach downtown San Francisco - initially the business district and then on to such areas as Chinatown. Or one could walk the Embarcadero from Brannan to Fisherman's Wharf. Whatever, this is a stunning part of San Francisco. Jared's and Katherine's flat is superbly placed to do so many things - to just rest up in it to relax and reminisce, or use it as a base to explore and use the locality of Dogpatch, or to move out from it to explore, for example, wider fields such as the wine growing country of Sonoma or the Bay Area Discovery Museum. There is so much potential - the choice is yours. We've had a most enjoyable stay at Jared and Katherine's garden flat and we are most grateful for their hosting and hospitality during a period when we we were visiting San Francisco to see our granddaughter. Everything has been just wonderful. Bob and Sue

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

When staying in San Francisco one of my top priorities is location and this property has that with easy access to CalTrain and Muni. No car needed. Another thing is quiet at night as I'm a light sleeper. I didn't have any trouble sleeping at all.

The pictures are accurate in showing you what you're renting. Extra thought was taken in making sure you had a few basics such as coffee and kitchen staples. There were large containers of shampoo and conditioner is the bathroom in case you forgot those. To me it's a little small for an extended stay but it worked well for the 4 nights we were there.

When I walked through the backyard garden with its water feature I could picture myself in one of the lounge chairs reading a book in warmer weather. The internet worked well.

The reason I rated this property a four instead of five is because every sound from upstairs carried down. I worried about disturbing our hosts with our noise so I constantly told my husband to speak softer and keep his tablet turned down.

Although I didn't meet her Katherine was prompt in answering any questions I sent her. I'd stay here again on a short trip. The location will be hard to beat.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the flat. Very clean with a comfortable bed. We enjoyed our stay and the location was within two blocks of family. Plenty of places to eat within walking distance. We felt safe in the neighborhood and secure in the flat. No TV, but WiFi was fast and we were able to stream movies without issue. Would love to stay here again.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Katherine was a fantastic host! She greeted us with roses and champagne, we were staying there to celebrate our Honeymoon. She and her husband were very helpful and knowledgeable. The flat was 1 block from the tram and very easy to navigate to and from. It's was clean, well kept and just what we needed. The room was nice and cozy and the king size bed was extremely comfortable. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. The kitchen although we didn't use it was perfect size. Katherine and Jared were amazing and so was their flat. Book this place while you can!

Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

The Garden Flat was perfect for us. The neighborhood has excellent food venues and entertainment opportunities. Although we missed not having a TV to see what was going on with hurricane Irma, we were comfortable with all the amenities.

Dated and could be cleaner

  • 3 of 5

People are nice but kitchen and bath are in need of cleaning, updating and softer towels.

Garden is lovely but benefit from power washing.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry the decor was not to your taste, the flat is well-maintained and exactly as pictured in the listing. That said, I am very concerned about your remark on the cleanliness of the apartment. We pride ourselves in offering our guests a very clean, comfortable, quiet space in which to enjoy San Francisco. I either clean or inspect the flat myself between stays, and am therefore very surprised to hear there was something amiss. I would very much appreciate if you would contact me directly and let me know exactly what was amiss so we can ensure an enjoyable experience for our future guests.
