Super splendid neighborhood with nicely landscaped houses and lots of trees. There is a small park just up the street along Sunnybrae Ave. Lots of great eats, especially Asian and Italian, on B St. just up 9th Ave. and to the right. Central Park on El Camino and 9th Ave. is beautiful with a rose garden, arboretum and Japanese garden.

There are local buses on El Camino, Grant Ave. and Sunnybrae Ave. - the Sam Trans System. Free parking in the driveway and along the streets. 20 minutes from Half Moon Bay and San Francisco, 30 minutes from the East Bay, 60 minutes to Santa Cruz. There is a BART station in Milbrae for heading north and a Cal Train station at K-Mart for heading south (or north). Taking a cab the 10 minute ride from the airport would be best.
