John and Svwtlana met us upon our arrival. They showed us their beautiful home and our accommodations. Afterward we sat and visited with them like we were old friends. John and Svetlana were very personable and truely made us feel right at home!
Our accommodations were as described on their web page. Our master suite was clean and spacious with a private entrance so that we could come and go as we pleased. John and Svetlana were very knowledgeable about where to eat, things to do, and directions on how to get there. On Sunday morning they took us on a teriffic four mile hike in the hills above Redwood City. I especially enjoyed the heated.swimming pool and jacuzzi which I used frequently. This was our first experience with airbnb and my wife and I highly recommend it!
Authentic living on Redwood City hills. Very nice hosts, pool, hot tube, large apartment inbuilt into a big hill villa. Did it for a business stay in redwood, 15 min drive to seaport blvd.
I stayed at the house on a business trip to Mountain View. The room was absolutely fantastic. Lots of space, impeccably clean and a really nice bathroom.
Svetlana, the host, was very considerate and made sure at every step of the way that everything was working well for me.
The area around the house is very nice on top of the hills at Redwood City, I'd recommend a GPS to find it if you don't know the area though.
I would highly recommend this place and will hopefully visit again on my next trip.
Svetlana is a very gracious host, with a great place to offer in Redwood City. It is spacious, comfortable and well appointed. The location is fantastic for access to various points in the Silicon Valley. Communications were very good, from the point of booking the space to checking out.
I stayed in the honeymoon suite while traveling for work. Everything went off without a hitch, and the room is large (very large) with easy private access. Didn't get to try the pool.
John and Svetlana own a beautiful home in the rolling hills of Redwood City. The check-in process was hurried because we were delayed by Friday traffic, but we soon learned that we were staying in the downstairs master suite, had full access to the home, and that they were leaving for the weekend. The suite was very comfortable with a cable tv and large bathroom with double sinks. The walk out to the beautiful pool is just outside of the room and the water was nice and warm in the mornings. There was great access to a washer and dryer. There was no community food so we bought food for the refrigerator and figured out how to use the coffee maker. We also learned that we were not alone - there are at least 2 permanent borders in the house and 1 in the poolside cottage. We met 2 of them and they were quite nice. Overall, we had a very pleasant stay. The location also has great access to 280 for trips either into the city or towards Santa Cruz and the ocean.
Beautiful home, great time swimming and watching World Cup on big screens :) and very nice hosts.
