Our stay at Cactus Cottage was fantastic! Rich and Suzanne are the perfect hosts, whom we would stay with again in a heartbeat! During our stay they were very accommodating and such a lovely couple to speak with on a daily basis.
I cannot recommend them highly enough, it was a pleasure to stay in their home!

Rich & Suzi's studio space was a true gem of a find. I was pleasantly surprised by the layout - it feels roomy, has so much storage space, & is very comfy. Just 3.5 miles from my job at UCSF, right around the corner from TJs, Whole Foods, shopping, super close to SFO. Exactly as stated! No issue w/street parking. They are the sweetest hosts! So nice, laid back, welcoming, & sunny dispositions! I would happily rent again!
The cactus cottage was fantastic! The place is very spacious, even bigger than it looks in the pictures. It was very clean and had a nice homey feeling. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to cook at home. The bed was incredibly comfortable. Basically, it was just a perfect place to stay. The house is in a great neighborhood - safe, clean, plenty of street parking and only a few minutes to downtown SF. Richard and Suzanne were also incredibly friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this place and would stay there again in a heartbeat.
Great people, great place, I wouldn't hesitate to stay again, and heartily recommend it.
Rich and Suzanne are lovely hosts. Very friendly and helpful.
The apartment is very spacious and the pictures are absolutely accurate. So if you like what you see, don't waste any more time looking.....book it now. You will not regret.
Loved my stay. Thanks to Rich and Suzanne.,
My wife and I describe our 5 weeks stay in the Cactus Cottage in two words : comfortable and happy. Richard and Suzanne were the best hosts that made us feel very welcome and they both were very helpful.
We are former long time residents of San Francisco returning for family and friends visits in the area. Because we know the city well, we were fully aware of all the practical positive points mentioned in reviews by previous guest of Cactus Cottage. This includes a lovely , safe and quiet neighborhood plenty of free parking space ( a rare commodity in SF) and convenient proximity to shopping areas. We had a car to use but for those who wish to use public transport there are several bus and tram lines within walking distance from the Cactus Cottage. Easy access to leisure areas and to the freeway is an added plus.
The layout of the studio gives it a feel of a one bedroom apartment that is very tastefully furnished and decorated. The kitchen is fully equipped with utensils and equipment. The garden of the Cactus Cottage is a beautiful variety of cactus plants tastefully laid out.
Scott MacKenzie in his song about san Francisco says:If you're going to San Francisco....You're gonna meet some gentle people there, Richard and Suzanne sure meet the bill: they are both gentle and hospitable hosts.
We had a wonderful half year stay in Cactus Cottage. Convinient location, large clean light studio apartment, everything was the best for our family. Thank Richard and Suzanne for everything! They are really great hosts! Real San Franciscans!
