I stayed at John's apartment for close to 2 weeks. John is an awesome host. He answered all my queries before and during the stay. He had to travel abroad during the period I stayed at the apartment so couldn't meet him in person however he made sure that I had step by step instructions with pictures and directions, on almost everything from checking-in to laundry. :-). The apartment was tidy, clean and everything was in order for a wonderful stay. Overall an excellent stay. Location too was perfect - easy access to 101, San Mateo downtown. Aptly titled 'Cozy place in San Mateo'. I am surely going to book this again whenever I am in SF Bay area.
Was in the San Mateo area for a course and John's apartment was perfect for access to freeway and was close to downtown San Mateo as well. The apartment was clean, quiet with convenient parking. As a host John was quick in his communication making it an easy process for us.
I stayed a week at John's cozy apartment in San Mateo in December, and I found the experience to be outstanding. It was warm and comfortable, very clean, and well equipped. I didn't do any cooking, but it would have been easy to do as far as the kitchen equipment goes. The apartment is in a comfortable neighborhood a short walk to downtown San Mateo, with its eclectic mix of coffee shops, restaurants, and so forth. John made me feel very comfortable in our communication before my stay, and he was also very accommodating when I contacted him with questions or requests. All in all, I would give John's place and my experience there a 10 out of 10! Ron
While it had a good location, it did not seem like John was prepared for our stay. For example: there was a used washcloth left in the shower, clothes left on the back of the bathroom door, no dish soap, and a moldy sponge in the sink. John gave us the impression that this was his primary residence.
The bed and couch were very comfortable and the place was roomy. Parking was easy and right by the entrance. It was close to a cute downtown area with great food options. It was central to all the different places we went during our stay and the location felt safe. John was very nice and told us if we had any problems, to give him a call. We did not need to, as everything in the apartment worked well. Overall, we were happy, but we hope that John is better prepared for his next guests to improve the experience.
About the Host, John
One of my passions is traveling. As a traveler, I know the importance of getting to a comfortable place where you can regroup from a long day, relax and re-energize for next day. As a host, I hope I can provide that kind of experience. A place where my guests can feel like home.
