Ken was the consummate host for my parents who visit us every year and stay close by. He was always immediately responsive and helped immensely with last minute changes to our schedule. The property was clean and as represented. My parents would stay there again.
My teenage daughter and I spent five nights at Ken and Richard's place, and it was great. The pictures are very accurate. It was clean and nice. It has two twin beds (and a pull-out sofa) so the sleeping arrangements were good for us. Everything worked including the wireless connection. It was very easy getting to and from the airport on BART. The cottage is only 3 blocks from a BART station, and we used BART several times to get downtown. It was also very secure because there is a locked gate and then a sidewalk back to the cottage behind Ken and Richard's house. Ken and Richard met us when we arrived and greeted us farewell when we left. They were great hosts. The neighborhood is among the more diverse areas of San Francisco, and we always felt safe. There are many nice restaurants in the area and Philz Coffee, which is right around the block, is great. I highly recommend the Cozy Cottage and if we go back to San Francisco we will stay there again.
It has been a real pleasure for my friend and me to be hosted by ken & Richard.
They welcomed us warmly, and explained us everything concerning the accommodation, which was totally as expected. And they also provided us advices concerning the Mission district.
The location is great, close to the public transports. We highly recommand ken & Richard's guest house, we would definitely come back again.

Ken was a great host, and the cottage was perfect for me and my friend. The location was awesome, very close to everything happening in the Mission, but surprisingly quiet overnight. Ken gave us several good recommendations for places to eat, and he was very accommodating of our schedules. No complaints! Would definitely recommend this place to my friends.
Ken and Richard were very inviting and made us feel right at home when we picked up the keys. The space is very private and has a beautiful outdoor patio. Perfect location to explore the Mission. Would stay again
The cottage was exactly as pictured, and even more adorable than we'd thought. It was in a perfect location, close to shopping, restaurants, bakeries, bookstores, and public transit to get to other areas of the city. Ken and Richard gave us great recommendations for where to go in the area, and they made the trip very smooth. Having a kitchen was a great way to save a bit of money and the backyard such a nice additional place to sit and relax. We only wish we'd been able to stay longer! Highly recommend, will definitely consider staying here next time I'm in SF.
Ken was a great host ! He did everything to help me, especially when i lost my keys. The studio is great, well furnished and so cozy everybody will feel at home. Location with a LOT of great places to eat and hang out is probably one of the best in SF. Bart takes you in 5 min downtown. Just one remark : Wi Fi didn't worked on my Vaio and HP computer...
My partner (Richard Leger) and I have occupied and owned this Victorian for 31 years. We were married in July, 2013. We love San Francisco and take pride in our home. We enjoy classical music, eating out, reading and visiting museums. I sing in a large community chorus (San Francisco Choral Society - Tenor) and my church choir (First Congregational). We are members of the San Francisco Historical & Museum Society and the Fine Arts Museums of SF. We are looking for guests who are seeking a lovely home base for their visit to our world-class city. We hope to provide ideas and directions to make your stay as rich an experience as possible. We can possibly provide a city tour in our '79 VW convertible if desired.
