Wonderful Stay, Beautiful home, very warm and welcoming hosts. John and Lana were super hosts and the space is clean, well lit, and the surroundings refreshingly green. The house is very well organized and it was super nice catching up with both of them on arrival.
I spent one week in this beautiful home. John and Lana are very warm, welcoming and helpful, giving many useful recommendations on how to explore the Bay Area and San Francisco.
Both the house as well as the area around it are beautiful. The house is very nicely designed, cozy, comfortable and tidy with large rooms. Close to the house is a natural resort with some small hills and a gorgeous view over the bay area, which is great for running. The whole area is very quiet and upscale, beautifully located in the hills.
I also liked the overall location of the house. The next city, Redwood City (5 minutes) has a nice and cozy downtown area, with a number of nice restaurants. The house also is only a short drive from Palo Alto & Stanford and San Francisco is not too far either.
Overall, it was a great stay, which I am hoping to repeat, next time I am in the Bay Area.
Thank you for the pleasant stay and the great BBQs at the pool. It's been a pleasure to stay at Lanas and Johns home with the 4 other guys. The room is great and works just fine as a part-time office in the bay area, too.
Thoughtful & attentive hosts in a fabulous setting. Lana & John's hospitality is exceeded only by their hospitality. They open their marvelous home with care for guests and great attention to detail. Staying in their spotless, ultra-quiet, spacious, comfortable home was in every way: a delight...and I plan to do so again when business takes me near Redwood Shores.
John&Lana are some wonderfull host. This is the second time I come to their house which is greatly located near in the hills between SF and Palo Alto. I would stay there again! Thank you
Sunny, peaceful house, and hospitable and friendly hosts. John and Lana did their best to make me feel at home, we made and had wonderful lunches and dinners together. Very relaxed ambience, in a great location, I highly recommend staying at the Emerald Hills Resort!
