About this listing
Large fully furnished bedroom with refrigerator and sitting area and private entrance. Clean, bright, queen size bed with new mattress.
Hello. Thank you for looking at my listing.
I have two fully furnished large bedrooms available in my newly remodeled 1900+ sq ft home in San Mateo, CA. (There's an identical listing for the other bedroom on this site. I have to make two separate listings because the calendar can only show availability for one listing each.) The house is in a residential neighborhood with ample parking, 15 miles south of downtown San Francisco. It's about 15-20 minutes drive to SF border, or you can take the bus to Millbrae BART station or walk to the San Mateo or Burlingame CalTrain stations to get to SF, or south bound to Mountain View or Palo Alto. For those days/nights when you want to explore the suburbs, nearby within two miles are downtown Burlingame and downtown San Mateo with shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. A little more south are Palo Alto and Silicon Valley. I am also two block from the bay trail where you can go for a run or a bike ride for miles and miles. It is absolutely beautiful and will lighten your spirit. San Mateo is below the fog line so you are almost always guaranteed to see the sun in the summer and most of winter, which is more than you can say about SF.
There is a daybed with trundle in one bedroom and a queen size bed in another. As you can see from the pictures, the entire house is flooded with light. There is wi-fi through out the house. All bathrooms are new and with shower over tub. Towels and linens are available for your convenience. For those guests who are staying for more than a week, washer and dryer are also available for your use. Rentals include utilities and wi-fi.
If you are interested in booking a room but the calendar shows it is unavailable, please check my other listing. The other room may be available.
I frequently travel on business so you may have the whole house to yourself for the entire or part of your stay. I have an indoor cat and a toy poodle dog but the house is immaculate as I have a cleaning service every other week. The cat stays home while the dog goes to a sitter when I travel.
While I welcome tourists and travelers, my house is also perfect as short term rentals for those students who are doing internships in nearby Foster City, Palo Alto or Mountain View. Genentech is even a short drive to the north toward SF.
Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or concerns that I have not addressed here. I hope you will come and stay with Lulu (dog) and Titi (cat) and me as we love our clean, spacious and beautiful home. But if not, we still wish you a memorable visit to the beautiful and magical Bay Area.
No smoking, inside or outside. Please be conscious of closing the door behind you because the cat cannot be let out of the house.
Both Thi and her home are lovely and could not be more hospitable. I'd relish staying there again and look forward to it. I learned a lot about the agree from her too.
Thi is very friendly and easy going. She really made me feel like home and showed understanding and patience although the changes in my status.
Her house is beautiful and quite, on a 20 minutes walk to the Downtown, I definitely recommend it!
I had an excellent experience staying at Thi's. She was very welcoming and generous. The house is very clean and well kept and I liked the location very much. While you can't walk to the restaurant (san Mateo is a 5 minute drive), it's great if you need to move north to San Francisco and South to Silicon Valley (and very close to the airport).
All in all, I would stay again and recommend it.
My 2nd stay here at Thi's place. Great location, private room, private bath. Clean and comfortable.
I had wonderful 5 weeks stay at Thi. Her kindness , hospitality exceeded my expections. Very cozy home with lots of privacy and really easy acces to 101 freeway.
I know where I'm staying next time if I need to and I would recommend staying at Thi to everyone.
Thank you Thi.
I spent a week at Thi's gorgeous house. My room was absolutely nice. . I needed a private clean and quiet place, with a good desk and solid wifi to work. I was provided with all of that and beyond. The house is located couple blocks away from the seashore where I enjoyed jogging everyday with California sunshine.
Thi is kind, warm, helpful and very respectful lady. She is also a gorgeous chef! Enjoyed her cookie and crabs :)
I don't think I can recommend it enough. If you are planning a trip to SF this is definitely a good choice.
I don't know where to start. Thi, the host has exceeded my expectations in terms of hospitality, accommodation, and generosity. Even my other half doesn't treat me like this. Kidding aside, Thi, the host is great. On my third day, I was invited to her backyard barbecue get together with her friends. It was fun and yummy. I wanted to know more about a nearby neighborhood. She showed me around and took time to answer my questions. She's not obligated to do this but she did. She went above and beyond to help me navigate the bay area. I'm very fortunate to have her as my host. There are too many intangible things to list that made my stay absolutely wonderful. If you need a place to stay in bay area, she is it.

About the Host, Thi
Hi. I'm a professional woman, working as a lawyer in San Francisco. I have two spare bedrooms on offer in my beautiful and clean home in San Mateo, twenty minutes from San Francisco and equal distance to Silicon Valley. I travel on business at least once a month and stay in very nice luxurious hotels, but when I travel for fun, I like to have the "home feel". I have had great experiences with Airbnb so far, both as a host and as a guest.
