A newly furnished 3bed/2bath condo in one of the most desirable and safe cities in the Bay Area - Redwood Shores. Since I really liked my "Airbnb" experiences, I wanted to provide such an experience for those who visit here from out of town.

The Space

The master bedroom is equipped with a California King bed, and the second bedroom a Queen bed (almost brand new!). I put a desk and a twin bed in the third bedroom, so up to 5 people can comfortably stay here. All the bedrooms have built-in closets. This will be a perfect temporary housing for your family, and it's also perfect for those traveling together. If you split the cost three ways, it's already cheaper than those cheap motels around.

Highlights
* Brand-new mattress (California King and Queen)
* Brand-new bedding sets
* Desk and Chair
* Full set kitchenware (brand new)
* Comfortable leather recliner sofa
* Fully renovated kitchen with stainless appliances and granite countertop. New dishwasher

Guest Access

* 42'' LG LED Smart HDTV (1080p) on the Wall with HDMI/USB ports
* Powerful Sound System for iPhone / iPad / Android, or any other MP3 devices
* Satellite TV (Dish) that offers hundreds of channels.
* High speed Wifi Internet (6Mbps)
* Large community swimming pool (with nice neighbors) and a hot tub
* 1 car garage and a carport (2 car parking spots)
* In-house washer and dryer
* All the utilities are included
* Linens and towels are provided
* Patio with BBQ

Interaction with Guests

I am renting out the whole place so I am not there, but my office is close-by. You can call me any time for any questions.

The Neighborhood

Redwood Shores is an extremely safe and nice town, located right in between San Francisco and San Jose. The moment you turn to Ralston Ave from freeway 101, you will see what I mean. Immediately, you get away from the hustle-and-bustle, and enter into a quiet town with lots of green trees and clear water. There are trails abundant, and neighbors are very nice and kind.

Other Things to Note

As a comparison, Sofitel in Redwood Shores charges $350 per day for a much smaller suite, but there is no kitchen and the car parking is far from your room. I am sure this is a much better deal. Please email me or call me at (phone number hidden) if you are interested. Thank you.

  • We had an amazing stay at Sung's place! The apartment is super clean, comfortable and well-equipped. Sung gave us an incredibly clear instructions regarding the house, was always there if needed, provided us with help, warm welcome and a big smile. Garage and a community pool were great additions to the overall experience. It would be hard to get out of this district without a car (quite far from the market, city center, etc.) but with a car, this spot is definitely a great choice and Sung is an incredible host! Hghly recommended!

  • Great place. Exactly as advertised. High quality condo with nice amenities.

  • My experience with Sung's place was superb. I can tell that he is serious about making his place as enjoyable and hassle-free experience as possible for his guests. The apartment is very clean (both in the sense of "not dirty" and "not cluttered") and has all sorts of amenities. Sung's pre-arrival instructions are detailed and clear. The apartment is spacious - even though I was the only guest, Sung's place could easily accommodate a whole family.

    The only things I would point out to future guests are location and parking. If you aren't familiar with this part of Redwood Shores (this was my first time staying there), it's very residential - I didn't see any supermarkets, convenience stores, or restaurants very close by - not a problem, but guests should plan accordingly. Also, the parking in the complex is highly organized and all assigned. Sung provided a map that clearly showed his apartment and his assigned parking space, but I arrived late at night, so it still l took me a little while to figure out the location of the apartment vis-a-vis the parking spot (they're close but not that close).

    Overall, I would definitely want to stay here again, especially if I'm traveling with family.

About
I love traveling. I am one of the early adopters of Airbnb. My wife and I frequently plan our get-away vacations with Airbnb. We picked Airbnb condo also for last year's Hawaii trip. It was amazing. Since we went there with my in-laws, spacious living room, 2 bedrooms, and an equipped kitchen made our trip much more enjoyable. I wanted to spread such experiences to other travelers. So I went ahead and bought a condo in a very nice neighborhood. It's fully renovated, and everything is new. I am certainly excited! I am originally from Seoul, South Korea. I work at Oracle as product manager, and have done a mobile gaming startup before. My wife and I have a 6-month-old daughter. I enjoy golfing, swimming, hiking, and cycling.
