Millbrae city has several good grocery stores (Trader Joes , Safeway, Luckys, Wallgreens), weekend farmers market, and lots of Chinese and Asian restaurants in downtown Millbrae, which is a 26 mins walk from the house. Some of the grocery stores are open 24 hours per day.
Millbrae is extremely safe and quiet at all hours of the day and night.
BART or Caltrain stations near our house provides easy access to downtown San Francisco and San Jose. Day parking for cars is available at Millbrae BART station for people wanting to avoid the San Francisco parking problems.
If you need to rent a car, we recommend (website hidden) rental, at around $20 per day. This is about 50% lower than most of the SFO airport car rental companies. We have no affiliation with this company, but like their service and cars. Keep in mind they have limited office hours on the weekend, if you are arriving late in the day.
The home is a 15-20 min walk from downtown Millbrae and is near the SFO airport. Walk to Starbucks, great restaurants, bank, post office and anything else you could possibly need in downtown Millbrae. Twenty six minute walk to BART or Cal train stations from our house.
Our house is located within 5-10 mins driving to the San Francisco airport, BART and Millbrae Caltrain stations. It will cost about $20 to take taxi from the SFO airport to our house, or you can walk to BART/Caltrain stations from our house.
Our neighborhood is quiet and safe. The backyard faces forest area and within walking distance to the large San Andreas Lake and park system - ideal for walking, jogging or bicycling.
We have blue skies for 9 months of the year. The weather is normally warm and we are not bothered by the fog-belt, like so often in nearby San Francisco or Daly City.
We love Millbrae for the many good restaurants and good weather. We know Millbrae very well, and will be happy to give advice and suggestions for places to eat good food. Let us know if you have any questions about our city or the San Francisco Bay Area.
Nils is a passionate technologist and clearly knowledgeable about a lot of topics, including but not limited to programming, hosting international visitors, health juicing and coin mining. We had a great time at his place.
Nils the host is interesting and fun, with lots of inventions. He went out of his way to make sure tub stopper and towels etc were equipped for guests.
Beautiful house, great location near to SFO and close to the millbrae center! you definitely need a car to move around! Great host and great family!
This was my first time using Airbnb. Nils was an excellent host. He picked me up from the BART station when I arrived and showed me around the house. It's a really nice space because you have your own entrance so outside of the bathrooms, it's like you have your own private studio. Nils was both professional and friendly. I would recommend him to anyone looking to stay in the area.
Nils was an exceptionally friendly and accommodating host. The view of the city and the bay from the house is spectacular. The room was clean and comfy.
This was my first time doing airbnb, and everything was great. Took the worries off of finding a place to stay while traveling.
The listing was just what I needed. I had to work remotely one of the days, and the high-speed internet allowed me to (website hidden) and chat and access work without a single hiccup.
The neighborhood was amazing just to drive through. It was peaceful and quiet, and hilly. Towards the Bay, there were plenty of restaurants and shops. The whole area felt very safe.
The bed was comfortable, and the electric heater fan kept the room to whatever temperature I set it to. There was also a deep-seated couch where I did most of my work. On my day in I stored some groceries in a shared space in the kitchen refrigerator. Other amenities that I did not use were a work desk with a computer, and laundry.
Nils was also a great host and was available to answer all my questions. He was very prompt and also attuned to traveling needs. It was also great to chat with him. I would have taken him out to dinner on my last day, but unfortunately he was busy at work!
Nils was a nice and friendly host. The room was exactly as described and very clean. He also offered me a computer free to use, free wlan and a whole compartment in his fridge. The view from his house to San Francisco is awesome and the neighborhood is beautiful.
I had an excellent stay at his place and can highly recommend him as host!!
Nils was very accommodating and extremely prompt on responding to my questions and inquiries through Airbnb prior to my arrival. Once arrived, he lead me to my private room which has its own separate entrance. It was clean, tidy, and professionally done. Internet was lightning fast and he even provided a desktop computer in case I didn't have a laptop with me.
The view of San Fran was incredible from his place & especially from the shower window, I would certainly stay again next time I am in the area.
Thanks for your hospitality, Nils!
Very nice people. Can do laundry anytime of the day as it is in the basement. If you have a car but want to go the SF by bart, recommand you find a way to leave your car near Bart station instead of at the place. As from Bart Station back to the place is climbing hill. Find a parking by that Bart Station shouldn't be too hard as it's the last station
Nils was excellent host. The house and amenities were as pictured. He also gave me ride to the airport and main area. Overall excellent experience and highly recommended.
