Description

The Space

Private bedroom with shared bath in the upstairs 2br 1ba home of a duplex. The bed is a queen size inner spring futon with a 3" dense foam pad. It's very comfortable, I know, having slept on it a few times already. Both the bathroom and kitchen are 5 years new. The rest of the house is colorful with many plants. There's a small deck off the kitchen that looks over the trees and the creek, where you can watch the hummingbirds or other critters that live among us. There's basic cable TV and over 100 DVDs and tapes you can watch. Sometimes I have a foster cat or two who stay with me.

Breakfast is included for stays of 10 days or less and you are free to use the kitchen. I work during the day most of the time, and when I'm around I'd be happy to drop you off at the train or some other place.
The house is located at the dead end of a street and has many trees around the back and sides of the property. We don't get the noise of a street that has through traffic, but it does sometimes get neighbors double parking. With some maneuvering we can get a second car in and out of the right driveway.

Downtown Redwood City is a couple of miles away and has many restaurants, shops, a multiplex theater and outdoors events during the summer months. There is also a large community park a block away.

Public transportation is either .5 miles or 1 mile with a bus that goes to the Caltrain station or down El Camino to the airport or Stanford.
Driving times (without traffic):
8 minutes to both 101 and 280 freeways
SFO 30 minutes
San Jose Airport 30 minutes
Stanford: about
15 minutes
By bike : I've had several longer terms people going to Stanford by bicycle. Their commutes have ranged from 25 to 40 minutes, or they ride a mile down the road and put the bike on the bus to Stanford.

I have traveled all over the world and speak French, Spanish, some Italian, Portuguese, German and Arabic.. It would be my honor to host domestic and international travelers.. so bienvenue, willkommen, اهلًا و سهلا!

Guest Access

Access to most areas, kitchen, living room/TV and garage for storing a bicycle or suitcases.

Interaction with Guests

The Neighborhood

I love that it's quiet. I particularly like spending time in the back where there is a garden and a creek and birds..

Other Things to Note

We're experiencing an severe drought that is unlikely to end soon, so short showers are necessary. We also recycle and compost at the house. There is a spot in the bedroom where the floor creaks.

House Rules

In order to provide a comfortable place for my guests to stay, study or just sleep, the following are the rules of the house. It is your responsibility to not only read the rules once, but to be aware of and follow them throughout your stay at my home. Most of them are common sense and are meant to ensure an environment that works for everyone.
-This is a fragrance /chemical free environment - no perfumes/colognes, "air fresheners" ---- shampoos/soaps/shower gels/lotions with fragrance are fine.
-No smoking or heavy drinking please.
-Shoes indoors are okay, but please don't wear hard heels indoors as there is a person living below whose peace we need to respect.

-Bathroom -the state is in drought mode so short showers are required. There's a blue bucket in the bathroom to catch the first 20 seconds or so of cold water. I can show you what to do with that when you're here.

Kitchen- There will be space in the refrigerator and pantry. For guests staying over one week, please help with removing trash.

Room- I may ask you on occasion to open your window so that air can circulate. Sheets will be changed between guests, longer term guests can change their own sheets when the need arises.


-Wifi - Don't download torrents or do anything that can get us in trouble with Comcast.
-No outside guests in the house without prior ok. You will be responsible for them.
I will orient you to the house when you arrive.
I look forward to meeting you!
