Our neighborhood is quiet and clean.
CalTrain is 1 mile away, other than that we are like any other No. American city. We live in our cars. I can take you and pick you up at the CalTrain Station.
All I can say, is that if you are visiting the San Francisco area, redwood city, San Mateo or Burlingame...stay here. The place was spotless, had wireless, and the host Josh was accommodating with my late arrival. I intend on staying there again!
Josh and his cottage provided the best experience a first-time airbnb user could wish for -- superb in every way. A pleasant and very comfortable detached studio cottage with kitchen and bathroom, thoughtfully outfitted, perfectly clean -- better than being home. Josh was attentive without ever being obtrusive, ensuring that he knew when I'd arrive, briefly welcoming me, providing a little folder with clear instructions about the coffee maker etc. And it's a great value in a town with terrible hotels. I hope to return to Josh's place every time I'm in that area.
The reason for my stay was "no room at the folks' place" and this apt was close/looked comfortable, and it was. I wish there had been time to relax and enjoy the deck/garden.... Josh was a very accommodating host (arrival was much later than planned), thank you!
An oasis of peace. Welcoming hosts.
A car necessary but location easy to find and a good place from which to do day trips.
Who could possibly want to stay in a hotel when Josh and Rosa's private cottage in Redwood City is available? Immaculate, super-comfortable and private, with every amenity I needed and more-my stay was a delight from start to finish. The cottage is on the back of their property on a beautiful quiet street.
I felt safe and enjoyed the privacy of my own peaceful retreat
Everything about our stay at Travelers Rest was wonderful. It was our first experience with Airbnb, so we had no idea of what lay in wait. Rosa was there to welcome us and the accommodations were perfect. Ideal location for access to shopping, freeway, and places we wanted to visit.
