I’ve been itching for an Airbnb trip for about 2 months now. My last visit to San Francisco was in January. So visiting San Francisco last weekend for a little rest & recreation with my husband is definietly needed. It was also my husband’s 31st birthday, so having a nice getaway together was absolutely well deserved.
For new readers to my blog, welcome! Once a month for business my husband stays in SF for a couple days at an Airbnb. Working remotely from Sacramento, he gets the chance to meet with his team, and be in the office. If schedule’s work out between him, the kids, and myself, we can usually squeeze in some mommy daddy time during his visit. This past weekend….We made it work. I’ve made the executive decision to skip out on one of my sons basketball games, including missing out on pictures!! (Yes! I know, bad mom!) BUT, am I really a bad mom?! A little weekend –parents only– getaway never really hurt anyone. Plus, I keep devote all my time to children here in Sacramento. So….Missing his game, and pictures. Not a huge biggie to me.
Every time my husband stays in San Francisco, he always at an Airbnb in one of our favorite “dream neighborhoods,”Potrero Hill. Potrero Hill is a residential neighborhood in San Francisco, California. It’s actually our dream neighborhoods if ever we return back to the Bay Area. It is known for its views of the San Francisco Bay and city skyline (right along 18th-20th St. CHECK it out!!!), and its very close proximity to many destination spots, and its sunny skies.
We’ve been using Airbnb for about 4 years now, and haven’t really turned back to hotels during vacations/mini-getaways.
UNLESS we get to stay for FREE using our Points we receive from our Chase Sapphire card. ;P
We do occasionally stay at a boutique hotel, which we did last February for our 16year anniversary – which we spent in Santa Cruz.
You can read more about our Santa Cruz weekend HERE at Hotel Paradox.
Overall, our getaways are usually at an Airbnb. I just love all the different options you get at an Airbnb that you would never get in a normal hotel. Some really unique places can be rented out. For example, you wouldn’t expect Airbnb, a HOA and long term shipping containers to go together but there has been an Airbnb made out of shipping containers approved by a HOA. How crazily awesome is that? Only on Airbnb!
Running our own Airbnb is definietly a goal within the next few years!!!
Soooooo please stay tuned to watch me turn from an Airbnb renter, to host!!!!!
Our visits to San Francisco have been way more frequent than ever! Even while we were living in the Tri-city, we rarely came into San Francisco. So it’s just funny how life works in mysterious ways as we’ve moved to Sacramento, and now visit every month or so, and stay at a fabulous Airbnb for a few days to live like locals.
You can check out a video of one of our last visits with the kids in San Francisco. I made a separate YouTube Channel away from my TiffanysTidings channel to hopefully share more traveling adventures!

It’s a Classic Victorian apartment in sunny Potrero Hill! As I mentioned earlier, Potrero Hill is my husband’s and mine’s FAVORITE neighborhood. The host Bethany, is originally from Seattle, and love’s the outdoors, traveling, reading, eating, meeting new people, and playing games, especially Settlers of Catan (Who doesn’t love Settler’s of Catan?!?!?! Junior version is also dope as well!!!)
Bethany’s Airbnb is again, in the sunny and quiet Potrero Hill, 1 bedroom/1 bathroom lower unit in a 1900s Victorian house. Great central Potrero Hill location, close to The Mission, Dogpatch, SOMA and walking distance to many tech companies (close to my husbands work, which is why he booked it!) Shuttle stops and Caltrain are near, plus, easy access to 280 and 101 freeways for those commuting down the Peninsula. Whole Foods is around the corner along with many great neighborhood restaurant options and local businesses so a car is not necessary when we stayed.
The place was so perfect for us! It’s a beautiful house in a great location. It’s so lovely, comfortable, and a well-appointed space. Bethany replied instantly to every communication and was very responsive to any request or question – KUDOS to being such a great Airbnb host. Loved how private and light-filled the apt was.
I love gathering home decor inspiration from all the Airbnb’s I stay at!! Can’t wait to host!!!!!
