The Space

We offer a private serene room in a beautiful house in Silicon Valley. The room comes with a private bathroom with tub/shower and lots of free street parking.
There is also a patio for enjoyable outside seating. We are an easy going, open-minded, well-traveled, international couple (German/American) who enjoy good company and conversations. We also have an indoor cat.

The house is in a quiet neighborhood in Redwood City, right next to Atherton. Restaurant and shops are within 2-10 minutes driving distance and there is a small mall in walking distance.
We offer free wireless internet, a library with TV, and coffee or tea if needed.

We love eating out and have lots of good recommendations for ethnic restaurants on the peninsula as well as in San Francisco.

There is easy access to 280 and 101 and you are within minutes in Palo Alto/Stanford. San Francisco is a 35 - 40 minute ride by car depending on traffic. SFO is 25 minutes away and there is also access to Cal Train.

Guest Access

Guest have access to the guest room, the private bathroom and to the library upstairs. The library has a TV , however no cable - only Internet TV.
The patio is also open to hang out when it's warm which is most often but not all times.
As for the kitchen guests can use the coffee maker, make tea, and place food items in the fridge but we ask you to refrain from cooking.

The Neighborhood

Quiet residential neighborhood. Downtown Redwood City, Menlo Park and Palo Alto are close by. A supermarket and smaller restaurants are in walking distance.

Getting around

Highly recommend having a car. Street parking is ample and free.

  • This is why I love Airbnb vs a hotel. It is always the people that make the difference and Sylvia was outstanding! She communicated beautifully and was very tolerant of my crazy schedule.

  • Sylvia and Dominic are amazing, hands down. They are wonderful hosts in addition to wonderful people. They are very friendly, warm and inviting.

    The house is very spacious and clean with beautiful decor. It is in a very good location with easy access to
    inner roads as well as highways. I moved down for work from Seattle WA and was a bit nervous for the move.

    Also I was 1st time airbnb user but staying with these amazing people allowed me to get comfortable quickly and the living
    situation became the one aspect that I didn't have to worry about. Overall I had an excellent experience staying with them. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

  • Sylvia and Dominic are excellent hosts. They warmly welcomed me into their beautiful home and shared their dinner with me on the first night! The bedroom is large, very comfortable and spotless like the rest of the house. The bathroom and kitchen are both amazing as well. I've also enjoyed spending the evenings on the back patio with the kitty cat. Highly recommended, I would definitely stay again, and I will be!

  • This was my first time staying at a place through AirBNB. It was a great experience. My fiance had booked me at a hotel in the area a few days earlier and there was no comparison. Sylvia's place was so much nicer & she even served a German-style breakfast with excellent coffee in the morning. Being able to book with Sylvia the same day and get there fairly late was a godsend. Her place was absolutely beautiful and she was a delight to talk to. It was a very relaxing place to be. Exactly what I needed. I would highly recommend her place to anyone looking for a comfortable, beautiful, relaxing and affordable place to stay in the heart of silicon valley.
