Other Things to Note
The kitchen is self service. As a reminder there are 3 domesticated cats on the premises. Tommy can be especially friendly, but please don't allow him to sleep in your room...he might get too comfortable there.:) Thank you!
My expectation is that you will wash your own dishes after use and turn off all lights, heat, or fan when not in use.
There is a mini fridge in your room. Please keep your perishable food items there if possible.
I will try to be flexible with check in time, but check out time is 11:00 so that I can prepare the room for the next guest. Please leave the dirty linens in the room and the spare keys on the desk prior to your departure.
I am happy to suggest restaurants, shopping centers, or local tourist attractions upon request.
Please be Kind, Courteous, and Respectful.
Maggie is a very thoughtful host in every aspect! The room is well equipped with TV, microwave, mini-fridge, heater for a comfortable stay. I enjoyed the privacy and was able to work in the evenings at the well lit desk. Maggie's house not far from the highway and the morning traffic was smooth to Woodside where I took classes. Thank you and wish you all the best, Maggie! Hope to see you next time.
Maggie and her family made me feel welcome. The room was exactly as advertised and fit the bill for what I needed. The neighborhood was more lively than I would have preferred as there are a lot of families in the neighborhood but did not pose a problem but for one night it got quite loud quite late but this was the exception during the my week; not the norm.
Maggie was a wonderful host! Very easy going and very helpful and considerate! I enjoyed the stay and the room, and there's really not much else to say. :)
Maggie was a great host! Her house is very nice, and she and her family were all very welcoming.
