Loved this airbnb so much I've booked it twice now. I travel every other week for work and this place is perfect: convenient, cozy and clean.
Beautiful location. Clean and comfortable place to unwind up in the hills. Great Mexican restaurant nearby, too!
Great place. Beautiful bed as in picture with great view out the window. Very easy and swift communication and coordination with Hillary. Thank you.
It was great! Bed is super comfortable, everything was exactly as pictured. I will definitely be staying there again. It is a little oasis in the hills.
Great location that's minutes away from downtown Redwood City, but feels like a private mountain retreat. If the weather had been a bit warmer I would have enjoyed a cookout on the patio overlooking the bay. Amazingly comfortable bed, and full provisions including coffee and shampoo.
Would definitely stay again!
Hillary's place is very cozy and comfortable. It looks out a great view and the bed was comfortable that you melt into it. The place is kept clean and Hillary was very responsive to some of my questions via SMS to sure that we are all set up. My friends did have some kind of allergic reaction like sneezing (maybe dust mites? I didn't have any reaction... ) and Hillary said she will look into it. I will definitely stay here again.
Great place to stay in Silicon Valley. It was quiet and comfortable, and had a great "up in the clouds" feeling, as you could see out to the Bay. Both beds were perfectly comfortable and Hillary was very helpful in getting us situated.
We rented Hillary amazing house for a 3 days (website hidden)-workers flew in from Chicago and New York and stayed in the house. We were previously booked to have the meetings at our offices but the house is so great, spacious, clean and with such a view! We couldn't resist and the meeting took place entirely at her house.
Hillary is the BEST host. She thought about every detail to make our stay the best possible. The house is clean, fully equipped (first time we saw a dish washer with lights inside), we could make our expressos during breaks enjoy the amazing view of the Bay. The main floor is large enough to comfortably accommodate 18 people in the living room (we even could project our presentations on the wall) and also allows reserved meetings in the other rooms.
I totally recommend Hillary house for meetings and retreats! We saved money and enjoyed million times more than if we were in a conference room and staying in hotels!
Perfect location in the hills. I loved waking up to the trees and sun! Bed was super comfortable. Clean, nicely furnished, great for our weekend away from the city.
Was only there one night but it was awesome and would certainly recommend it to anyone staying in the area!
