I really enjoyed my stay, the room was great and the house was conveniently located. Craig and Meggie were excellent hosts, very friendly and welcoming. They also provide a booklet with information regarding practical information such as the location of grocery stores and restaurants nearby, which was great.
We loved the place. Meggie and Craig are great people to talk to and very welcoming. The place is just like in the pics and perfectly located near the airport and close to SF. Highly recommended.
The host was prompt with their responses. They greeted us upon arrival and explained the basics. Since we were out and about all the time we never got a chance to mingle too long, but both Maggie and Craig seemed very nice. The room/house was very clean and close to public transit. Parking can be tricky, but we always found space. We enjoyed our stay here.
Craig and Meggie were very welcoming after our long drive up the California coast. Their beautiful home is located within walking distance to Downtown San Mateo and the Caltrain, which made it very easy for us to find great restaurants and to get into San Francisco. Their home was the perfect place to unwind and relax after our very long days. I would definitely stay here again on my next trip up to San Francisco.
Really enjoyed my stay with Craig and Meggie, they were very welcoming and the house was in the perfect location.
Craig and Meggie were very hospitable during our stay. They have excellent information about the area and were flexible with our coming and going. We wish we had more time to chat with them during our stay.
The room was exactly as pictured. The location had many excellent ethnic restaurants (we especially enjoyed the Middle Eastern cuisine in Burlingame). The only shortcoming was a lack of parking. We tended to get in quite late in the evenings and typically had to walk 5 minutes to get back to the house. Otherwise the location was great. It was equidistant to San Francisco and San Jose, and a very enjoyable 1.5 hour drive through wonderful mountain roads to Big Basin Redwoods State Park. All in all, an excellent stay!
We stayed for 3 nights. Everything was (email hidden)e hosts, the room, the house, the wifi. Just parking can take a few minutes when you arrive at the wrong time...
All in all we would not hesitate to stay here again.
