This was a great place to stay. We were here for three weeks, Doug made us very welcome. We were upgraded to a larger room with a comfortable bed and plenty of storage. The house is in a quiet residential area, has a big sitting room, very nice well equipped kitchen. Lovely garden, with friendly hens( fresh eggs!) There is Safeways supermarket only 5 mins walk away. We biked everywhere when we were there, so it was central for all our needs ( 10 mins to Caltrain station)
Best of all was our lovely laid back host.
Thanks Doug! Hope we see you again soon.

Loved my stay! The house: love the layout of the home with lots of windows to bring in natural light. I had the room toward the end of the hallway, and it reminded me of my own room. The color scheme, the minimal and comfortable decor, and even the yellow poppy in the vase on the desk made me feel right at home in the room. I got a little cold at night (bc I get cold way too easily), and Doug gave me free reign of the central heater. He also offered me extra blankets just in case, so I was fine. The host: Doug and his son Brett are great. I spent most my time in the house with Doug after work, and I felt welcomed from the beginning. He laid out breakfast foods and tea or coffee options. He also woke up each morning to make coffee in time for me to take it to go to work. And, he was extremely easy to talk to. He let me be when I needed to be antisocial and get some overtime work done, and we had great conversations about life when I needed the company. All around good person to be around and be your host!
Everything mentioned in the reviews is completely true. I just finished several days with Doug and his son Chris. What an awesome experience! I had been staying in various airbnb's for several months while I looked for a permanent home, and I wish I had found this place much earlier.
Doug is a wonderful host, and his son's Chris and Brett are very level headed, respectful and fun young men.
Thanks Doug for a great experience!
Doug is a great Airbnb host. Doug's place is very nice, both the house itself and the neighborhood. The room and bathroom were really clean and very comfortable. Looking forward to staying with Doug again
Cozy and quiet place to stay and friendly people! Doug and his whole family are very nice and considerate. We spent 2 weeks with them and enjoyed a lot. My 3-year old daughter likes Doug and his whole family very much and even would not leave.
Doug made us feel extremely welcome and at home in the US. We stayed for more than a month after moving here while looking for our own place. Doug is always in for a chat and just a great guy to be around. The place is very nice and well maintained, and big enough to share with Doug and another guest. We will definitely recommend this place to our visitors!

Hi there, I am a real estate broker from Silicon Valley. I enjoy traveling with my sons and meeting new people. When I was a younger, I enjoyed staying in youth hostels and making new friends. We are easy going and fun to hang out with. I can't live without good food, friends, family, music and adventure. I love swimming, biking, hiking and pretty much everything outdoors.
