The Space

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 another 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 blocks 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.

Both bedrooms have new and comfortable queen size beds and private entrances. As you can see from the pictures, the entire house is flooded with light. There is wi-fi through out the house. The two rooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom that is professionally cleaned by my cleaning service every other week. The bathroom is 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 all utilities, laundry 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 San Mateo, Foster City, Palo Alto or Mountain View. I have had interns from Visa, Sony, EA, Palo Alto Medical Center and Stanford.

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.

Guest Access

All common area, including my beautifully landscape back yard. No cooking in the kitchen though.

Interaction with Guests

The two rooms are in the back of the house and are separated from the living room, kitchen and my bedroom by the kitchen and pantry. As you have your own private entrance, you don't have to see me if you don't want to. But on the other hand, I'm avail to hang out and chat if you'd like. I cook often when I'm home and not traveling. If you're open to it, you'll likely be invited to sit down to dinner with me and my friends from time to time.

The Neighborhood

Quiet, residential neighborhood with plenty of street parking. A few blocks from the beautiful Bay trail where you can walk, run or ride your bike along the San Francisco Bay.

Getting Around

20 mins walk to the San Mateo Caltrain station.
