About this listing
This sunny, cheerful, and calm room is nestled in a quiet countryside-like setting minutes away from Yosemite-like hiking trails, yet it's in the middle of Silicon Valley.
I offer a private serene room in a beautiful house in Silicon Valley. The room comes with a shared bathroom with tub and shower and lots of free street parking.
There is a family room and a fire place to hang out, as well as a relaxing patio and two decks for enjoyable outside seating. I am an easy going, open-minded, well-traveled person, who enjoys good company and conversations.
The house is in a quiet neighborhood in Emerald Hills. Restaurant and shops are within 2-10 minutes driving distance. I offer free wireless internet, a library with TV, and coffee or tea if needed. Please don't expect absolute perfection though, because the price reflects what expectations should be. The hotel room prices in this area are $165 per night for a single room for three-star accommodations.
I love eating out and have lots of good recommendations for ethnic restaurants on the peninsula as well as in San Francisco.
There is easy access to 280 and 101 and you are within minutes in Palo Alto/Stanford. San Francisco is a 35 - 40 minute ride by car depending on traffic. SFO is 25 minutes away and there is Caltrain access
Guests are welcome to ask me for anything they need. I'm the kind of person who has just about everything on hand - my mother always said I should open a neighborhood store! But for my Airbnb guests, I won't charge anything of course.
Obviously, as well, absolutely everything that a top hotel would provide, like comb, razor, toothbrush and toothpaste, sewing kit (am I missing anything?) will be provided, just ask.
As someone who lived in Paris and Tokyo just before coming here, I love the incredible feeling of living in the countryside, yet having the most modern amenities of urban life just five minutes away. I still marvel that such luxuries actually exist. My favorite is Edgewood Park and preserve, with forests and hiking trails, just three minutes away!
There is bus and Caltrain.
