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.

Thi is a wonderful host who understands her city. She can help guide you through questions you may have regarding transportation or leisure experiences. If your lucky, you'll be invited to sit and enjoy one of her warm dishes. She's a great cook! Her house is very clean and comfortable and you feel like your staying with a friend rather than a strangers house.

This was my 1st Airbnb experience and I cannot imagine a better one! Thi was prompt and helpful with all of the initial communication. Her home was ideally located within walking distance to the locations I needed like a market at the end of the block. She was there to meet and welcome me to her beautifully appointed home and my room with private bath and refrigerator. During my stay, she was very open and generous with her time to be sure that all of my questions were answered and particular needs meet. I was even invited to share in the family barbecue night. If there were 6 or 10 Star Ratings, she would still deserve the highest …! Overall, a Fantastic Experience! And, I travel to SFO fairly regularly, so I will most definitely be back…

I wanted to be original but everything about Thi and her house was already written here. She is a wonderful person, great host, the room was exactly like described. Thi is also a great cook. The place is pretty close to downtown San Mateo and has convenient connection with Silicon Valley as well as San Francisco. Can't say a bad word. Highly recommended!

An ideal home away from home. I stayed there for a month while working in the Bay Area, and everything worked out perfectly. Thi is very friendly and helpful, and if you are lucky enough to be invited for dinner, don't miss out!

Thi is a great host! She introduced lots of places to me and it helped me a lot. The room was just as described and has a private bathroom right beside the door. Also her cat and dog are so cute and friendly to strangers.

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.
