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.
Craig & Meggie were great hosts! I had no issues with the place, and they were really organized / friendly with providing suggestions & help regarding the area. I didn't get to spend much time with them given my hours, but the room / bathroom were great for my needs!
Very accommodating hosts that are excellent resources for the area. Excellent location, close to downtown San Mateo. Highly recommended.
Craig and Meggie are both great hosts. Clean and comfortable house. Fantastic experience.
We lived at Craig and Meggie's place for one week. It was a great place. The location is close to the caltrain station, which is very convenient to us. We like that there is a desk in the room and the internet is fast and stable. The bathroom is clean and for guest use only, which is as described. I would choose this place again if I had chance.
Craig and Meggie are friendly but not intrusive. The room and bathroom were clean and as pictured. Street parking was not terrible. I have no complaints! It was a pleasant stay.
