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 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.
Quiet residential neighborhood. Downtown Redwood City, Menlo Park and Palo Alto are close by. A supermarket and smaller restaurants are in walking distance.
Highly recommend having a car. Street parking is ample and free.
Initially we had a difficult time to come up with house rules because most seemed to us common sense. However common sense is not always so common. So we learned along the way that some rules may be worth sharing to avoid misunderstandings.
First thing is to be aware that you are renting a room, not the entire house. We, the owners will be here during your stay and we ask to treat the property with respect and in the same way you wanted guests to treat your place. We don't care when you leave the house or when you return we just ask to be quiet when returning home late. We will do the same.
Since we have carpet upstairs we ask to remove shoes when entering the house.
Should you come here for work we prefer for you to not work from our home.
We also ask to not bring any visitors into the house that stay here overnight (unless it is properly booked through airbnb) or just hang out here. For pick up, etc. this is of course not a problem.
Last but not least, you can use the kitchen to make a coffee or tea in the morning but we ask to please not cook. If you are unsure about certain things just ask. We want your stay to be mutually enjoyable and we are happy to help out with any questions you may have.
We look forward to meeting you.
Sylvia met me on arrival and explained all the amenities and house rules. Their home is very clean and modern. My room and bath were just as described. I had a great stay.
I had a great time staying with Sylvia and Dominick. Their place is stunning. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for comfortable and convenient place to stay, with fantastic hosts.
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 is a wonderful host. Home is beautiful. Both her and her husband gave great advice on the area. Highly recommended. Very gracious and welcoming. I enjoyed my stay.
Sylvia is a great host, very friendly, warm and welcoming. very comfortable room and spacious house, clean and well decorated. really enjoyed my stay and felt like I was staying home. Sylvia even prepared breakfast and coffee on Sunday morning including nutella. :)
Highly recommend! and would definitely stay again!.
Absolutely wonderful hosts. Clean and very comfortable. I recommend staying here hands down!
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.
I'm from Germany and moved to the US 10 years ago. My husband was born in England, grew up in Germany and has been in California for over 20 years. We are working professionals with no kids, we love the outdoors...hiking, windsurfing, running, etc and are both very easy going and resourceful people.
