Accueil chaleureux, Linda a répondu à toutes nos questions et nous a offert un panier de bienvenue très utile. Maison très agréable dans un quartier tranquille et avec supermarché, banques, essence et laverie à proximité. Accès très aisé à San Francisco et à l'aéroport, plage à 10 mn. La description de l'annonce correspondait en tous points au logement, cependant le ménage laissait quelque peu à désirer. Nous avons apprécié notre séjour dans cette maison.
Linda nous attendait dans la maison. Elle nous a tres bien acueillie. Elle avait prévu un peu de nourriture dans le frigo. Elle nous a parfaitement décrit la maison et fourni toutes les explications nécessaires.
Elle nous a donné accès à une chambre supplémentaire en raidon de l'absence de sa nièce qui l'occupe habituellement. Nous avons donc eu un tres grand espace de vie.
Linda & Joe's house was wonderful and exceeded our expectations. Everything was a described, only better. We were welcomed warmly with a lovely variety of foot and a nice tour of the house. We enjoyed our two week stay very much and would recommend this house very highly. We definitely would want to stay here again. We are very grateful for Linda's excellent hospitality.
What a great place! Location was perfect and the home is delightful! Very spacious and had everything we needed and more. Linda had stocked us up with some basic groceries so that our late evening arrival was smooth sailing. She also had lots of San Fran info to help us get around. Our stay was wonderful! Would go back in a heartbeat!
Our family stayed for two weeks and had the greatest experience in Daly City. Linda was a great host and helped us with everything we needed. The house is in a quiet neighborhood and very cozy. There's a nice shopping center with a supermarket within walking distance and two other large malls within 15 minutes driving distance. Fort Funston is 5-10 minutes away and great for watching hang-gliders and hiking. Great house and great hosts. We would love to go back.
We had a wonderful stay at Daly city . Linda is an excellent host . We landed late in the evening and therefore had requested Lind for keeping a few items which would help us get started the next day morning without going shopping.
She had kept everything as required and that made our start wonderful.
The location of the house is just appropriate . Its not very far from airtport ( take around $32 in taxi ) , is walking distance from BART station ( which can take you to downtown SFO ) . There is a nice shopping complex which is again walking distance( it has a safeway , wallgreens , indian restaurant , T mobile shop - everything that you may need to have a comfortable stay) .
The best part is Linda has kept 4 BART cards at home for the guests ( you can get them charged at the wallgreens - open 24 Hrs ).
There is a Hertz car rental ( around 2 -3 miles) in the daly city which send you a pickup if you want to rent a car from them . Also the gas station is just round the corner.
Overall the stay was very comfortable and we did not have to struggle even a bit for everything that we needed.
I have stayed at this property before. I returned because the the host, Joe and Linda provide excellent service. They are willing to do anything in their powers to make you feel welcome in their home. Linda replies quickly to your reservation request and checks in with you before and after you arrive. They let you know many times if you need anything to contact them or the property caretaker. They will work with you to ensure you have every comfort.
The home is conveniently located close to public transent and freeways allowing easy access into San Francisco, local beaches, or any place along the peninsula.
The home is located in a clean, well maintained quiet neighborhood. Don't let the brown lawns fool you, California is in a drought and a brown lawn in a badge of honor. Two blocks from the house is a large shopping center with a large supermarket and many places to eat. There are several gas stations near by, as well as a very clean coin operated laudromat to wash laundry.
I can't say enough about the owners or their home. I really have enjoyed my stays and would not hesitate to stay there again in the future.
