The space

Studio/cottage with private entrance. 15 minutes away from Stanford University and near Silicon Valley. Only 25 miles from San Francisco too! This lovely, clean cottage is located one-half block away from Stafford Park in a quiet, tree-lined neighborhood. The nearest CalTrain station (Redwood City stop) is less than one mile away or a short 10-15 min walk. This station provides easy access to San Francisco, San Francisco- SFO or San Jose- SJC airports. Nearby is a great downtown Redwood City area as well with restaurants, shops and a movie theater in addition to the multitude of city-sponsored summer movies, events and music performances near City Hall.

We provide coffee beans, grinder along with all the other coffee fixins. The cottage has great natural light with large windows and a queen bed made up with new linens, a down comforter along with extra pillows and blankets. An additional queen size blow up mattress is available on request.

Kitchen amenities include stove, microwave, mini-fridge, freezer and garbage disposal as well as dishes, utensils and some basic cookware. Bath towels and some incidentals are included.

Additionally, this quiet, private space is equipped with a full bath, 39" LED TV (+ Xfinity 160 channel package), secure WiFi, and a large closet.

If you have kids, we can also provide a small selection of toys!

A clean and comfortable place in a beautiful, walkable neighborhood. About 15 min. drive (on weekend) to Palo Alto; nice county park with wooded walking trails/hikes nearby. Hosts were great.

A perfect Airbnb experience! I stayed for about nine weeks over Chris' cottage while working at Stanford, and everything is even better than described. In addition to echoing all the rightful references other people made, I'd highlight Chris' promptness to resolve any emergent issues, the quiet and peaceful surroundings, and the lively Redwood City downtown.

This was our second stay at Chris and Beatriz's cozy cottage. As before, everything was great. We will try to stay there again the next time we visit our son who lives nearby. It's difficult as the cottage is almost always booked up, it's that good. Thank you Chris and Beatriz. John and Colleen
