Comfortable home with views to die for.

  • 5 of 5

The house is centrally located and well designed. It's an upside down townhome with the bedroom and full bath on the bottom and the living area on top. There are ample windows in every direction. This makes it a very bright and sunny home. We'll miss the gorgeous views of the city, the bay, and the Bay Bridge from the windows and the balcony.

The house had almost everything we needed. Whatever very minor things it was lacking, we left for the next guests. :)

Whole foods is 2 blocks away on the same street. The house has a parking space that you can use if you rent a car or have guests.

Thanks to Dan for his hospitality. We would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic Rental at Potrero Hill!

  • 5 of 5

I feel very fortunate to have found this rental in San Francisco! It is in a nice neighborhood, very quiet, and the owners, who live next door, answered my questions promptly through texts.The view off the balcony is as beautiful as the picture! The property is a bit of a climb up the block, but there is a bus stop across the street. I will definitely stay again if the opportunity arises.

Great Location, great accomodations.

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of four and all agreed the house was perfect for all our needs. The beds were comfortable, kitchen well equipped, lots of towels ,great view from the balcony. Safeway and Whole foods near by for groceries. The bus to go to Fisherman's Wharf is one block over , the bus back stops right across the street from the house. I would highly recommend Dan's home for your visit to San Francisco. Dee Boshaw and Family

Quiet, Beautiful View, Convenient to Everything

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 4 of the 6 nights we were in San Francisco. Having never visited San Francisco, I was unfamiliar with the area and not quite sure what to expect. We were VERY pleased when we arrived. The home is very simple, but well appointed. We cooked meals in most nights and had everything we needed. The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful with easy access to I-280 which takes you to Pier 39 where most of our tours departed from. The view from the deck was breathtaking...even better than the pictures. Our last 2 days, we spent at the Hilton in downtown San Francisco just so the kids would have a pool for a couple of days. While the hotel was nice, we all agreed we should have stayed at Dan's place the entire time. I can't say enough good things about this home. I would definitely stay again if I were to go back to San Francisco.

Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views from every window. Large open upstairs where we watched 4th of July fireworks in every direction. The house had everything we needed and was very comfortable. We loved San Francisco and our visit to Potrero Hill!

About Dan Feldman

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.

Why Dan Feldman chose Potrero Hill

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.

What makes this house unique

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.
