When requesting a booking please provide as much information about your planned stay as possible. Are you here for work or tourism? Will you be using the house as a "base camp" gone most of the day site seeing or traveling for business or will you be on a laptop working in the house? If working, are your hours standard or night shift?etc... This will assist in making sure all guests and accommodations are a good match
Thanks for your interest!
We grant guests access to the kitchen and common areas, as well as the "outdoor room," yard and hot tub/pool.
Interaction with Guests
We are friendly and private folks! We are here to help you acclimate to our home and the area and assist in any way so that you enjoy your stay. We are social and offer you the welcoming comforts of home along with the privacy to do what you like.
San Carlos is Walkable. Caltrain is about 1.5 miles from the house and Samtrans buses run by. Overall, public transportation is not the best in the Bay Area as a whole. A car is recommended.
Other Things to Note
We have been hosts for over 1.5 years consistently and have traveled as guests as well, in the U.S and abroad. If you are a seasoned Airbnb guest you will appreciate the experience of our home. If you are new, you may not realize the quality of the experience until your next stay somewhere else! There is a reason we rank as superhosts! We look forward to having you in our home!
Absolutely NO smoking
There is a whole list of house tips available in each room to make your stay more enjoyable and to increase communication.
We are not big on rules but here are a few general guidelines that may help you choose or not choose our place:
1) treat our home as you would your own...respectfully with regard to cleanliness, courtesy and care.
2). We are early risers ( up at 6am) and early to bed ( usually by 10pm) on weekdays as we both work. This doesn't mean you have to be early to bed and early to rise too but, if coming in at 3 am nightly after partying is your plan, we are probably not the right place for you!
3) there may be other guests staying as well...see rule # 1 & #2 and that's about it
I had an excellent stay. Everything is as expected and explained on his profile. Tara is a very uncomplicated host what I appreciated very much. Her place is very clean and very well maintained. The bath is newly renovated. There is on property parking, fast WiFi, full kitchen and access to pretty much the whole house.
Tara and Mike are very friendly, helpful hosts and their place was beautiful, clean, and tidy. They also have two friendly, well behaved dogs. Very much enjoyed staying with them and I would not hesitate to stay with them again or recommend them to a friend!
I had very nice and comfortable stay at Tara's. The place is exactly as advertised : Quiet, Clean, Tasteful, Convenient. Tara is a very nice host. Don't think twice.
Tara was a wonderful host; her home was convenient, wonderfully decorated; all conveniences available. I especially appreciated Tara's obvious experience with AirBNB and the guide that she prepared for the house and the local area. A fine place to stay! / Paul (Helen's husband)
Our stay in Tara's lovely home was perfect in every way. Accommodations are impeccable-comfortable-well appointed and maintained. Tara is generous and organized. Truly fulfilled the idea of home away from home! Will definitely stay with Tara again.
Very nicely decorated home with tasteful design. Super spacious. The back yard was very tranquil to get work done. It was a very peaceful sanctuary from business, especially coming from Hong Kong. Tara was great and I hope to be back again.

About the Host, Tara
We are both busy folks! Gone most days working hard, hitting the gym after. We love to be active, to laugh, to dine, to visit, and travel. At home We are fairly quiet. We hang out, garden, putter and relax by the pool when the climate is right. We have enjoyed hosting a myriad of people from around the globe and hearing their stories and entrepreneurial adventures. Our goal is to see that you are comfortable and assist where needed. We give you the independence to come and go to do what you need to get done while you are here. We provide you with your own "comforts of home" spot at the end of the day to relax as well. We look forward to having you in our home.
