  • Isabel communicated well. The wood burner was wonderful. Located in a quiet residential neighborhood just a couple blocks off of a main road that takes you to grocery stores and restaurants. Easy access from the 101 or 280. Great place to stay if you need to split time between San Francisco and San Jose or want to be within 20 minutes of Stanford, but save money on a hotel. Had great water pressure and plenty of hot water. Bed was comfortable. Parking was right in front of the apartment and we didn't have to move the car for a street cleaner so no worrying about a ticket. There are stairs up to the apartment and to the master bedroom and the bathroom. The kitchenette includes a microwave, toaster oven and small refrigerator and sink. The apartment has great light and a good view. Very clean!

  • Great apartment on the Peninsula. Easy in and out with street parking. The wood stove was a nice addition. Would stay here again.

  • What can we say about this place? It was perfect! Spacious, comfortable, breathtaking view of the valley, well located and amazing hosts. Our 3 year old made friends with Isabel's boys and literally cried when we had to leave. Such nice people.

    The master bedroom is huge and the extra room, although small, is adequate as an extra bed. It is just off the main room though, so not soundproof (not an issue if you ask me...we managed just fine with a toddler sleeping in there). The kitchenette is ideal for breakfast, reheating stuff and they just added a cook plate and pans.
    What's not to love? This is the best value, most memorable place in the valley.

  • I enjoyed my stay in Isabel & Michael Parrillas’s apartment. The apartment is accurately and fully described in the write-up and pictures on the airbnb site. The master suite and full bath up a half flight of steps from the living area is quite delightful, spacious and comfortable. Excellent bathroom with three separate areas for the i) two sinks, ii) shower and tub, iii) toilet and bidet. Living room is also as pictured with a nice wood burning stove and supplied firewood. Fire is not absolutely necessary in the Redwood City climate but it certainly more than took the evening chill off the room. There is a small spare room off the living area just a little larger than the bed it contains.

    The eating area is not a full kitchen but does contain a small frig, electric oven and microwave. I brought my own electric kettle which I was thankful for.

    Isabel & Michael were thoughtful hosts, even supplying me with a strainer to wash my morning berries. They are busy professionals and I didn’t run into them a great deal. Isabel warns that she has two boys but I rarely heard them and never unpleasantly.

    My only complaint is that the advertised internet access is marginal. Internet access depends on accessing the router in the main house. I found it strongest in the master suite and very slow (about 1 gig download speed when it worked at all) in the living area. Michael is considering various alternatives to fix the problem (including hooking up a second modem to a cable outlet in the apartment). If this is important to you I would suggest inquiring before you rent.

    All things considered I would probably rate this a 4.5 but taking into account all the things that were quite wonderful about the apartment and its location I rounded up.
