What Past Guests Are Saying
Fantastic Holiday Rental
Everything was arranged through SF Holiday Rentals before we left home, they were great to deal with. The apartment is owned by Margot and Peter and they are fabulous hosts. Margot has done a wonderful job of decorating. Her photography and artwork is stunning. We felt at home.
We are a family of four and stayed here for 5 nights while we explored San Francisco. It is a short walk down the hill to catch a bus to Fishermans Wharf. We were able to connect to other buses from this route and made our way around with ease. Riding a bus in San Francisco is a different experience. The walk up the hill at the end of the day was a bit strenuous, but sitting on the verandah with a glass of wine and watching the sunset over Forest Hill is an absolutely magic way yo finish the day.
I would recommend this apartment to anyone. It is clean and neat and has all the facilities you need for a short stay holiday.
Margot is a wonderful host.
A convenient house in a quiet neighborhood
We have stayed at the house for four nights, a couple with 3 grown up girls. There is a master bedroom, a room with a single bed and a sleeping sofa that can accommodate two. However, there is only one restroom and bathroom. As we booked the house at a short notice, we knew that there is a compromise. Nevertheless, we managed very well.
The house is convenient and very well equipped. The only thing I was missing is a dish washer. The view from the balcony is very nice and in a sunny day it is great place to seat in.
The neighborhood is very quiet and one can always find parking. We had a car and it was very convenient to get from there to all the touristic sites.
There is also a "Safeway" a few blocks from the house which is open 24 hours.
Annette and Coila, the agents, were very kind and cooperative.
I would recommend the house for either families or 3 adults.
Visitors from Boston
What a great place to stay! Our family of four (2 adults, 7yr and 9yr) had an wonderful stay at the Garden View Hideaway. It's private, well equipted, very comfortable and has a great view. We lived in the Potrero neighborhood for six years so we know the area well. We had a car so it was very easy for us to navigate around the city and do a quick run to Whole Foods. If you don't mind the hills, there are parks, coffee shops, a new library and great restaraunts with in walking distance too.
We will definately be back!
nice rental but possible bed bugs
Was fairly easy to book the rental. The house itself was nice. Lots of SF charm. Kitchen floor was crooked but we managed. Was nice to have laundry. The backyard was really nice. Wish that we could have used it but were too busy. The back balcony provided beautiful views especially during a lightning storm. Location was good, was able to drive to San Francisco attractions really easily. The place was stocked with cooking utensils and cutlery. This up to save a lot of money on meals. The wireless internet was very fast and very helpful for planning our day. Hd cable TV was also nice.
I booked this about 2 weeks in advance for a mid august stay. I was shocked that such a nice place was still available during peak season and naturally was skeptical of what the place would really be like. I was pleasantly surprised.
I was a little upset about having to pay a daily extra fee for my 1 year old niece especially since she didn't require anything extra to accommodate her. Apparently only 4 people can stay with the price. Also all 5 of us appeared to have bedbug bites afterwards.
Parking was a bit of a pain since there was no included spot. We had to park 2 blocks away but could pretty consistently find parking.
Sterling Heights, Michigan
This place is fantastic!
My Husband and I stayed in this flat for our vacation in October 2011. This was kind of a last minute thing for us as I panicked with my hotel reservation and saw this place available. I have never rented a vacation property before. This flat was a the best idea I have ever had! It was so nice to be able to have a whole apartment for our use during the week. Well stocked kitchen with pots, pans, dishes and the like. Comfortable bed and nice living area with a flat screen TV. The best part of this place is the deck off the back. We have the most beautiful views in the early morning and in the evenings. I wish I could post one on here just to show. I will miss that view!! The back yard has a huge Dogwood with blooming fruit and a lemon tree in the back as well. We were greeted by many hummingbirds as there is a feeder on the deck and many flowering shrubs for them to get their nectar. I cannot recommend this place enough. I met the owner while we were there and she was a very nice, warm and welcoming woman. Very sweet. I cannot wait to get back to San Francisco!!!
Relaxing and Enjoyable, the apt is so quiet and cute
Well worth it. Enjoyed my trip and the apartment. Would definitely stay there again
Great View! Very Cozy and Private
Really enjoyed our time at the Garden View Hideaway. Would highly recomment the rental, and the Potrero Hill location is very charming.
Paradise in San Francisco
Perfect. Views are unparalleled, the cozy apartment charming and light filled, the hosts are extraordinary. A nice oasis above the hustle and bustle of the city, within everything you need within a short drive or walk. The hills were not a deterrent for me. Loved every single minute I stayed here. Highly recommend!

Very Nice Apartment - highly recommended
Nothing bad at all to say about this place, we spent a very pleasant two weeks here. Lots of space for two people, very light with nice garden & good amenities. Location is a little out of the centre, but not too far, and is actually nice to be a little bit more removed. Nice distance from Mission, various shops etc. Only issue is that it's a bit of a hike up the hill, but where isn't in San Francisco, and as a result it has a nice view and manages to avoid most of the fog.
New York, NY
Home away from home (with a view!)
This apartment is a nicely appointed basement unit on Potrero Hill with a great view westward of the Mission and Castro districts below. It's away from the hustle of the downtown area, and a relaxing, comfortable and spotlessly clean place to spend some time in SF living like a local - the kitchen lived up to its billing and had everything needed to cook a good meal.
If you are on a short stay looking to do more 'touristy' things, this is probably not the best choice as the area is mainly residential and quiet - amenities in walking distance are fairly limited. However, the area is serviced by a few MUNI bus lines so you don't absolutely need a car - we got around quite easily using public transportation. If you do have a car, it's pretty easy to find parking nearby, as long as you have good parking brakes!
The owners, who live upstairs, were friendly and welcoming but not at all nosy - a perfect balance. And as the apartment had several guidebooks left by previous tenants as well as a thoughtful directory (closest groceries and cafes, how to log onto the free wifi connection, some delivery menus, etc.) we didn't need to take them up on the offer to head upstairs to ask them questions.
All in all, an enjoyable place to spend a week in SF!
What an awesome little place!
This was a great place to stay. The rental unit was very clean, bright and quiet. The balcony off the dining room was a great place to sit and read a book or enjoy your morning coffee. They had a lovely back yard too. The next time I am in San Francisco I will definately book this place again.
Sweet Valley Vista
This little spot on Potrero Hill is a bright and sunny view over the central San Francisco peninsula; a quiet place to relax over the nearly two weeks I stayed here on vacation. Even though my intention in retaining this rental was to venture into an unfamiliar city I almost passed up for Portland and Seattle, I found myself staying in, day after day, stopping over at the nearby Whole Foods Market once or twice for little pleasures to keep me from having to go anywhere. The unit is fully equipped, and the homeowner living above briefed me on the laundry, trash, and backyard amenities, not to mention the binder and books on area services and local attractions they make available to renters. Most, if not all of the permanent indoor lighting is on dimmer switches for creating just the right mood at night. The front garden, the backyard, the decor and multiplicity of windows all conspire to make the place feel light, airy and delightful during the day. If you're okay with hillside San Francisco living, you'll like this place. Otherwise, parking on the street's steep incline and hoofing the hills to access public transit may have you cursing the city's topography. Beware of parking on streets that require permits- the ticketing officers ARE diligent. A wireless hot spot extender like Apple's Airport Express may be useful to amplify the wireless internet signal provided by the homeowner. I can't recommend this haven highly enough. Its a sweet little place to write, celebrate a relationship or to simply relax while you bask in the light and take in the view; and the rental manager and the homeowner were both a pleasure to work with.
