The space

Hello! Thanks for looking at our listing!
Please read my description in its entirety to see if we have a potential fit.

We look forward to hosting guests of different backgrounds and welcome you to our sunny tranquil family home in San Mateo with a view of San Francisco Bay. Our home is spacious and cozy, and is very kid friendly. Our home is ideal for vacationers or those on business, and we will always make you feel at home.

We are in an ideal location, close to hwy 101 and 280, and public transportation.We are 20 miles south of San Francisco, 30 miles north of San Jose, 36 miles west of the Tri Valley and 13 miles from half Moon Bay and beaches. We are 10-15 minutes from SFO.
If you must use public transportation, Sam Trans #53 passes close to here. The Caltrain station is 1.5 miles away. You can park there or walk there. Keep in mind if you walk, it is a rigorous walk back up the hill. The train is a 20 minute ride to SF. I can send you a referral code for a free ride from Uber or Lyft if you have never used their service before.

A little more about the location: You are within walking distance to the Laurelwood shopping center which includes Piazza's grocery store, and several eateries. The College of San Mateo, and Sugarloaf Park, which has hiking trails, are nearby. There is also a farmers market at CSM on Saturdays featuring lots of organic produce.

Our perfect guest is someone who loves life and sharing good conversation. We enjoy learning about different backgrounds and interests! While we would love to share our space with you, and will likely invite you to join us when we are around, we also appreciate very self sufficient guests! We are a very busy family and need our guests to make themselves at home and take care of themselves. This means tidying after yourself like loading and unloading the dishwasher and being respectful of our home.
We do not allow smokers or any smoking on the property, inside or outside. Also, we have no TV, so bring your laptop! We have plenty of toys to share with your children- we just ask that you clean up after they enjoy them.

A little about us: We are an active household, homeschooling our children. We speak English and Italian in our home and we have a passion for cooking gluten free international vegetarian cuisine. We love art, books, gardening, inventions and creativity in general. The animals in residence are three lovely chickens who lay eggs.

About the accommodations:
(This is one of four ways to sojourn here; please refer to my other listings for the other three ways.) Please note we may have guests staying in the other 3 listings during your stay.

Upstairs semi-private loft with a view. There is a comfy full futon bed for two, a corner desk, a large work station, and a dresser.

The loft is the only access for the private bedroom, so guests staying in that room would be passing through. Your bathroom is located in the garage-turned-into-a-workroom downstairs.

You also have use of our garden and patio, kitchen and laundry(laundry is available only to guests booked for a week or longer; please see Guest Access).
Organic coffee and tea available.

Regarding kitchen access: You will have access to light cooking in the kitchen. We have cabinet space for dry storage and a small refrigerator just for guests. I run a food business, so will occupy the kitchen when I have an event. If you need to use the kitchen heavily, this may not be the ideal lodging. On the other hand, if you need kitchen access for light use, you will more than welcome to enjoy my cooking- we love to share food!:)

We enjoy sharing our knowledge of the Bay Area, so please feel free to ask for advice.

How to book with us:

When you make a booking request, please make sure to include:

a) your full name(s): include everyone in party.
b) something about you and the other people in your party, so that I can (website hidden) you
c) what you expect to be doing during your visit (for instance, please let me know if you will be working from my home during the day so that I will know if I can accommodate you).
d) confirmation that you have read through the description of the accommodation you are requesting to book, and specifically, that you understand this is not a private bedroom.

We look forward to meeting and hosting you!
