Remember that this house is shared with the homeowner and other Airbnb guests Please be respectful of the space and the people so we can all enjoy our stay here.
Because of a few incidents, I’ve outlined some explicit rules below. But most importantly, use common sense as your guide. Do your best to keep the place clean and tidy during your stay and leave it in good condition when you go.
Please follow these guidelines while you are in my home:
Please take off your shoes when you enter and do not wear shoes inside the house.
The bamboo floors are pretty, but also delicate. Please do not slide heavy objects across the floor and use caution when wearing high heels.
Unless otherwise noted, you can help yourself to food in the fridge and the cupboards. If you use the last of something (cooking oil, spices, condiments, dish soap, etc.), please replace it.
Clean up after yourself as you go. Wash your dishes (or put them in the dishwasher) as you use them, wipe down surfaces in the kitchen and bathroom after each use, etc.

If something is not working properly or breaks, please let me know right away.

A few favors to ask. Your help with a few things is greatly appreciated:
If any mail or packages arrive for me, please set them aside where I can find them.
If you are staying longer than a few weeks, please do me the favor of watering the plants. They don't need much. A little water every few weeks and they're happy.
Please treat my home as you would your own and leave it in good condition for the next guest. Before you go, please:
Leave the house in good order (furniture in place, no big messes, etc.)
Strip the beds. Put used linens and towels in one pile on the floor.
Wash your dishes. Or run a final load of dishes in the dishwasher.
Take all of your personal belongings with you.
Leave extra keys on the kitchen counter. Use the house key to lock the front door and then slide the key back under the door.
Thanks for your cooperation!
The town home was exactly as pictured and was a great living environment. Laura was very nice and the whole experience was quite pleasant.
Laura's place is clean, neat, comfortable, and easy to access. The private room as well as the entire home is exactly as pictured and prior to my arrival Laura made me feel comfortable with the arrangements. (I also used the laundry which worked out fantastic.)
I stayed at Laura's house for a month and everything was perfect: the house is spacious, clean and tidy, and the room is very comfortable. The private bathroom is awesome and the parking garage was very convenient.
Unfortunately Laura had to be away and I didn't get to meet her, do I had the house all for myself and the guest of the other room (which was away most of the time anyway :) )
Great host, very friendly and prepared everything for us. The house is comfy and convenient surrounding, such as supermarket,shopping mall.etc. we will comeback again! Absolutely!
Laura was a great host! It was always very nice to chat with her and great to have her around when she was home. She was also very flexible when I had to make some changes to my booking. I felt very comfortable living there and I really appreciated that she always made sure the apartment was clean for the next guest and informed me when someone was going to stay in her room (when she wasn't home).
The apartment is very beautifully furnished and tidy. I had a great time there and can highly recommend this place if you stay or work somewhere in the Silicon Valley.
I have lived at Laura's place for about 3 months and I had a great time there. Within this time frame I lived with her for about 3 weeks and always felt very much at home and very welcome. She made sure I knew where everything was when I arrived and that I had everything I needed. Also, she was always happy to chat with me whenever we both felt like it. In addition, she always informed me about new arrivals or the like when I was there. She really gave me the feeling of being welcome and at home.
Her apartment is just lovely...beautiful and very homely and warmly furnished. I loved my room and enjoyed staying there very much.
I would like to thank Laura again for her hospitality and for opening her home to me. I wish we had had the chance to share the apartment longer. I can highly recommend this apartment to everyone. It is safe, very clean, very conveniently located in the bay area and comes with a great host! ;-)

About the Host, Laura
I love living in the Bay Area and all that it has to offer. On the weekends, I enjoy going to Santa Cruz, Half Moon Bay, Big Sur or into San Francisco. I also travel out of the area quite a bit - for work and for pleasure. Some of my favorite spots include destinations in Latin America, Africa, and Europe.
When I'm home, I rent out one of the bedrooms and share my place with Airbnb guests. When I'm away, I rent out my entire place. (I have multiple listings for each scenario.) I've had great experiences with Airbnb so far and look forward to many more!
