The house was great and both Ken and Richard were very welcoming. I loved the garden and sat outside in it every evening. I was in town to run the SF Marathon, the house was just off the Bart & Muni for the airport and the start line. Great restaurants nearby and many places to explore as well.
Fabulous! Spent three nights very comfortably at this delightful cottage. The location is excellent and Ken and Richard have thoughtfully provided all you could need and more. Gorgeous garden to relax in as well. Highlight of our visit was definitely the guided tour in the restored VW Beetle, thank you Ken and Richard for such a wonderful fun time, we both loved it!! - recommend to all who stay here to do this if you can, it was excellent! If ever I have the opportunity to visit San Francisco again ( which I would love to do) I would definitely try and stay here again. Again, fabulous!
Ken and Richard's apartment was great and truly lived up to its billing! It was cozy, beautiful, clean, private and in a great location. When I arrived, Richard showed me around the apartment and wonderful courtyard and provided me with information on local coffee shops and restaurants. I would highly recommend this home and look forward to staying there again when I am back in the area!
We had a perfect stay in Ken and Richard's cozy cottage. We had everything we needed and the garden was a lovely place to come back to after exploring beautiful SF. Ken and Richard were perfect hosts- very helpful and the introduction was great and we loved all their recommendations. The Mission area was also perfect - really interesting with an array of eateries and only a short stroll to a BART station was a real bonus. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this Cozy cottage.

Everything about this place was perfect. The location could not have been any better, Ken's recommendations were amazing. The cozy cottage was cozy, comfortable, and very quiet at night. The back patio was perfect for coffee or wine especially when the sun was out! I would stay here again!
Lovely accommodation in a great part of the city. The cottage is just as described and was a great base for our time in the city
Great stay at Ken's place. Nice cottage, beautiful backyard and in a great part of town. I'd recommend it. Several places to sleep in the apartment, as well. It was very comfortable for us. Ken is a great host.
