Quiet neighborhood so no significant noise after 10pm.
The cottage was as advertised. The size and space was perfect for my wife and I. The location was great...tucked away in a very beautiful and picturesque quiet neighborhood only a few freeway exits away from the SFO airport. The property is nice and feels like you're out in nature and staying in a rustic cabin. If you want privacy, peace and quiet, and to be close enough to the conveniences in the nearby downtown area, this is a great choice.
I did not have a chance to meet Radhia because I had to cancel at the last minute. She was so understanding, compatiionate (I was sick) and generous in her response and refund. I was really touched by her gesture and words. We need more people like her in the world to soften the hedges of our selfish and greedy business world. Thank you Radhia.
Accueil très sympathique de Radhia et son époux. Le cottage est tres confortable,la literie excellente et il est situé dans un magnifique jardin.
Le quartier est residentiel et tres calme.
Je vous recommande vraiment ce logement.
The cottage was comfortable, quiet, and cozy. It had everything you could possibly need. Radhia and Patrice were excellent hosts. The cottage is very close to the airport and rails. We really enjoyed our stay!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Little Cottage on the Hill. Both Radhia and Patrice were friendly, hospitable and helpful. The cottage was comfortable and well appointed and conveniently located for our itinerary. We would not hesitate to recommend this option for travel to the San Francisco/San Mateo area.
I really enjoyed my stay at Radhia's place. The cottage was quiet, comfortable, and private and would be good for a vacation or business stay. I'd highly recommend this spot to anyone and hope to come back!
Radhia was such a welcoming host. This was our last stop out of 4 Airbnbs in 8 days and it was so cozy and relaxing. Radhia and her husband Patrice went out of their way to make us feel at home and gave us the space needed to recooperate after a long Honeymoon. Thanks for everything!!
