The Neighborhood

Lovely, new, and lively neighborhood. Walking to downtown CBD, with plenty of privacy and quietness.

The location is very convenient: about 40 min driving distance to San Francisco, 20 min to Half Moon Bay, Stanford University, most parts of the Silicon Valley. With walkable distance to downtown San Mateo, your night life will be versatile here: no need to worry about safety or the awful parking in downtown San Mateo. Also the Caltrain station is within walking distance. So you can visit your friends in San Francisco, Palo Alto, or San Jose for the day, and take a convenient Caltrain trip back at night. In case you will need to rent a car, the closest Enterprise is just 0.5 mile away. As we are here for several years, we will also be happy to share with you about interesting places and tips of travel around while you are here!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great location, very quiet. The apartment is pretty new and the in-room bath is quite spacious . Hosts are very nice and helpful. Highly recommended.

    June 2014
  • I had great experience staying at Sherry and Mark's place. Room and bath are really neat and clean. Sherry and Mark are both very friendly and nice. I had nice time with them.

    May 2014
  • Had a great stay at Sherry and Mark's place – their home is beautiful, and very well looked after, and they were really helpful!

    Wish I could have stayed longer!

    May 2014
  • Although there was a cleaning fee, the bathroom had not been cleaned. Also, although the appliances had been there for months, there was still plastic wrap on the refrigerator, lamp, etc which gave the place an uncomfortable feeling. I was given one bread plate (not a full size plate), one cup and one small bowl to use for my stay there.

    I hope they can fix these issues for future guests. It would also be good if they start recycling as San Mateo has a recycling program rather than throw recyclable items in the trash.

    Response from Sherry:

    We hope you communicated your concerns immediately instead of only letting us know after you left. We could have accommodated your special dietary. The bathroom is cleaned thoroughly after each guest's stay. We are sorry that you didn't appreciate our effort to keep the place clean and look new. As for kitchen, there are plenty of dishware & utensils upon request. There are recycling bins in the garage for cardboards and bottles. You could have asked us.

  • Sherry and Mark have a great home in a safe, central location in Downtown San Mateo. You are a few minutes drive from the heart of downtown and from the various freeways and Caltrain station. The room itself was clean and bright with its own bathroom, and many extra amenities were provided. Sherry and Mark were very friendly yet respectful of my space and time. Would definitely stay again!

  • I stayed at Sherry's while I was thinking about moving to San Mateo, and it was a great experience. She had helpful recommendations about the area :)

    February 2014
  • This is the first time I ever used Airbnb. I can just say that was a great experience Sherry and Mark! They are such nice people. Regardless of their busy schedule and the short stay in their house, they showed me around town, and we even had the time to enjoy dinner.
    The house was also really clean and spacious. the room was awesome and I had a really good sleep in a long time in the comfy bed!
    The area is quite and is recommended for people who love quite places and are ok with being just in the right distance from downtown San Mateo.

    January 2014
  • I had a great stay with Sherry & Mark. They were extremely friendly without being at all intrusive, and made my stay in San Mateo extremely easy! The room was clean and comfortable, as was the rest of the house.

    December 2013
  • Sherry and Mark are amazing hosts! I felt like at home!!!

    The house is brand new (furniture, appliances), everything is extremely clean (kitchen, towels, bad).
    Having your own bathroom is very comfortable as well.

    I definitely recommend this place!
