This is the first time I used Airbnb. I had a great experience. Thanks so much to Carol. I made arrangement for my daughter and her friend to stay at Carol's cottage in May. Carol was very nice and very responsive to all my questions. The girls enjoyed their stay.
Stayed two nights instead of my usual 1 night this trip. Was great to not be in and out. Always a good experience staying here, very easy going, comfortable and convenient.
Carol's place is absolutely beautiful, highly recommended. My only regret is that I made a mistake with booking, and was only there for a day!

About the Host, Carol
Hi, I was born and raised abroad, though have been a Bay Area native for 30 years. I've had a relocation business for many years and am very familiar with the activities and places to visit, which I'd gladly recommend to you. My 11 year old son and I travel often, and he goes to Waldorf school. We have been "green" for the last 15 years - we love to give back to the earth in all the ways that we can.
I am a seasoned Airbnb host and have also stayed with a number of wonderful Airbnb hosts. Our guests have been travelers from many parts of USA, South Africa, Spain, Australia, Germany, India, France, China, Colombia, Denmark, Russia, England, Hong Kong, Belgium, Greece, Canada, Slovenia, Indonesia, Scotland, Ireland, Panama, Hungary, Taiwan, Japan and I am excited about hosting you too.
Welcome to our organic home or the furnished, downtown, corporate apartment, two blocks down from my home.
