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.
Wonderful view and a very helpful host. (website hidden) maps wasn't completely accurate with the directions from Hwy 101 (the turn off of Helen Street), so if you're coming that way, you might want to consult with Nils in advance. I found the way without much trouble. Large room and lots of privacy.
Imagine finally landing at SFO after a full day in transit. You're tired, on edge, and aren't entirely sure of the local time. Fifteen minutes later you arrive at this home, look out onto the San Francisco bay, smell the fresh air, and take a deep breath... A-a-a-ah. Relief. You've made it.
OK, recharged? Drive five minutes to downtown Millbrae and enjoy restaurants, cafes, grocery stores, and free parking. Or hop onto I-280 -- just a three minutes away -- and zip north or south along the peninsula. When it's finally time to call it a night, you'll be glad you're staying here.
Nils was a very kind and helpful host. His family is a joy to interact with. The house and room are very dated, but clean, comfortable, and safe. About 1.5 miles from the house is some of the best Asian food anywhere. I highly recommend eating there once or twice. Thank you, Nils.
Nils was a perfect host and his family were wonderful. The room was comfortable and I had a restful night.
Enjoyed my stay with Nils. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. The location was convenient. I will definitely stay again when in the 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 is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
