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.
Our home is located in the "burbs" of little, friendly San Carlos right in the middle of Silicon Valley and San Francisco. Our neighborhood has a "woodsy" feel and is very quiet and private. We are minutes away from our "downtown" on Laurel Street which has plenty of good restaurants, coffe shops and nice bars.
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
Perfect experience! I spent a few nights in Tara's house, and it was great. The home is beautiful, has a very calming feel and is as clean as a whistle. I stayed in the back bedroom, which was very quiet (on the back side of the house) and had a comfortable bed. Nice bathroom was right next to the bedroom. Tara is a very lovely and generous host. She always went out of her way to make sure I felt at home. Highly recommended.
My colleague and I stayed at Tara's place for almost 3 weeks. We enjoyed quietness of the luxury house, large terrace and very welcoming host - Tara.
Tara was a very welcoming host and went to great lengths to make sure that we felt at home in her beautiful house. She accommodated all of our needs, was friendly and stayed in touch, and our dogs got along great! Her house is incredibly clean and cozy and there's plenty to do. Would recommend staying with Tara to anyone considering it, thanks Tara!
A very nice, cozy and pet-friendly house in a quiet neighborhood. Tara was really welcoming and attentive host.
Tara is the Hostess with the mostess!
Great place +great neighborhood + great hostess = AWESOME time!
The house is spacious and well furnished (just as pictured). The stay was a great value compared to the hotels around. Tara is nice and personable. I wish I stayed longer in SF.

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.
