The Space

Private entrance room available for one person, and it is located on the first floor of our house. The room has a separate entrance from the street and has its own door key so you can come and go without worrying about making noise.

There is lots of parking directly in front of the house, for those guest that are looking for free parking while traveling to/from the airport for a few days.

We have installed a 'full sized' airbed (a few inches smaller than a queen size). The pictures may show the smaller 'twin sized' bed, but we will update the photos to show the full sized bed.

You will be able to use the bathroom and kitchen upstairs. The common area (living room and dining room) is not shared with AirBnB guests.

You will receive your own key and can come and go any time of the day and night without needing to walk through the main house entrance and worry about noise.

We are a family of computer professional, and work from home. We offer free Wifi at a super-fast 50 Mbps speed, and also provide free use of a Windows 8 computer with a computer chair and (website hidden) There is plenty of safe street parking available in front of the house, with nearby access to San Francisco International airport. Some AirBnB guests park their car on our street while they fly out of town from SF airport. We provide heater and electrical blanket for those cold winter nights.

Interaction with Guests

Please enjoy the private entrance room, in a beautiful home with unbeatable views. No interaction is required with us, but we enjoy making friends and meeting new people from all parts of the world.

The Neighborhood

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. Safeway grocery store is open 24 hours per day.

Millbrae is extremely safe and quiet at all hours of the day and night.

Getting around

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 Super Cheap Car rental (just do a (website hidden) search for it), 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. You can walk to BART/Caltrain stations from our house, which takes about 30 mins.

Other Things to Note

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 was an excellent host who was very helpful during my stay. He helped me out with small trips to the shopping area and car rental until I had my car.

    The room is very comfortable and private and having separate entry with its own outdoor area which I liked very much. I would stay there again.

  • Nils and Rachael certainly do everything they can to make the private room, which is quite large, your area to rest whilst eyeing the amazing scenery from their vantage above much of the Bay. They have quite a view of SFO Airport from their front porch and even the bathroom. You can get your wake-up call from the sound of those jet-engines! If you like plane-watching, even a bit, there will be much to enjoy starting at 6 am and ending only around midnight. There are many nice touches: little LED lights to guide your way to the room at night, amenities, tea/coffee in the room, and reserved spot for your groceries in their fridge. The wifi also performs as advertised. Nils and Rachael respond very promptly and are fun to chat with. It's a great location to spend a stopover at SFO. Note, the place can be a little warm during mid-day, though water in the showers are refreshingly cool, and the bed is, befitting the airbnb theme, an airbed.

  • The host was friendly and welcoming. The room was very clean and comfortable. The most wonderful thing was his allowing me to leave my car while I was traveling. I very much enjoyed meeting the host and his daughter.

  • Host and Accomodation:
    Nils is a friendly and accommodating host. He greeted me when I first arrived, showed me around his place and made me feel at home.
    The room was spacious and private, everything was clean, place was neat and basic essentials like towels were all provided.
    The location itself is set on a very high hill, with great views of the airport and Millbrae station. Walking to the station takes about 50 minutes by foot, probably best to own a car or hire a taxi/uber driver.

    Local Area:
    Friendly and quiet neighbourhood, the shops have the daily necessities and some comfy restaurants like Nils' suggestion (Ben Tre Vietnamese - great Pho)
    The airport is about 15-20min by taxi and it suited me as my stay with Nils was just a relaxing stopover.
    If you don't need to head in the city, have a car and want some peaceful time alone then this is a great place to book.

  • Private entrance with good wifi, low key and welcoming household members. Location was very convenient to drive around Bay Area or to get to Caltrain park car there and play in San Francisco sans car. Millbrae as a town is gorgeous and quiet, and was safe, so you could jog or walk the area and see fantastic views, pretty neighborhoods, and yet be central to entire Bay Area and airport.

  • I have stayed 6 nights at Nils's and enjoyed very much, place is very close to SF airport, Millbrae is a nice and safe neighborhood and close to many other places. Place has a also separate entrance, if you like your privacy and dont want to bother the host every time you come in. Overall, it was a good stay. I can definitely recommend Nils's place.

  • Nil made sure I was having a comfortable stay at his place. You have complete privacy with the private entrance. Having the heater was great because it does get quite chilly. Nil was really friendly and accommodating. He also has a great Omega juicer he let me use. Easy access to the airport.

    April 2014
  • I had a restful night before my flight back to Brazil at this place. The room is extremely comfortable and is located in a quiet neighborhood a few minutes from the airport. Furthermore, Nils is a very friendly and flexible host (no problems with late arrival). I highly recommend it!
