I'd say Foster City It's hipper than other peninsula cities without being so upscale, but still has a strong suburban healthy vibe, with plenty things to do...

Alex is a great host - very friendly, warm and helpful.
The room is awesome, very clean, fresh and cosy, with a very comfortable bed, place to work. An equivalent of over 4 stars in US/EUR hotels.
The bathroom is shared with another tenant (the host has his own), we have never had any problems with this. Towels are provided.
There are some problems with the wireless router ("hiccups"), this is probably a hardware issue - we found out that resetting the router helps tremendously (do not hesitate to ask Alex to do so is required).
The apartment house is located in Foster City, basically on an island cutting deeply into the bay. The air is different there than in e.g. Mountain View, Redwood City or Palo Alto, it's much more windy and you have a strong feeling of space around. Very refreshing.
I had a car, so cannot say anything about mass transit. There is a lot of parking space around and in the direct vicinity there is hardly any traffic. In the rush hours you can expect delays in reaching the 101, but this can be said about all the cities close to the 101.
A huge shopping mall (Fashion Island) is within 5 mins by car.
There are some restaurants and cafes in a walking distance nearby, as well as a large Asian food store.
I heartily recommend Alex and his apartment, I had a great time there.
stayed with Alex and his Mom for 3 nights. Lovely set up, i had my private room, lots of closet space, Wifi works. the living room is set up beautifully. Mom served simple breakfast. It feels like staying with a family friend. Lots of parking. Foster City is very clean and nice and easy access to restaurants, grocery stores, etc. I would definitely stay there again.
Stayed there Mon. thru Fri. Alex seems a really nice guy, and communications were smooth. Had a simple breakfast every morning, although got the feeling I could have asked for something fancier if I'd been so inclined. Place was very clean and attractively appointed. Lots of parking. Bed was comfortable, lots of closet space. WiFi was a little flaky.
Great place to stay. No problems at all. Recommended!
