The space

Your bedroom is upstairs in the front of the house with a private entrance. The Living Room is your personal room as is your private bathroom; all separate from our part of the house. It's like 4 star hotel accommodations; queen sized bed, hair dryer, bath towels, soap, shampoo, cream rinse and on and on. We have it all. (Its nice to be older)

Full access to a great kitchen; dishwasher, gas range and cooktop with granite countertops.

High speed WIFI, of course.

TV: We only supply over the air TV but it is with a 40" TV and a DVD player in your room. Also, an HDMI cable to hook up to you computer if you wish. AC & USB power ports built into headboard. Maps of the area supplied free.

We are in a quiet residential neighborhood with easy public transportation connections to San Francisco or San Jose (SJC), CA via CalTrain.

We have a large back yard garden with 2 Weber charcoal grills and a gas grill and ample seating for guests.

Flying in, check San Francisco (SFO) and San Jose (SJC). We are 1/2 way between both and sometimes SJC is cheaper by far.

We are old hippies, travel junkies (70+ countries and counting), we have lived and worked on 4 continents and are still having fun and in love after 40 years together.

We are, of course, LGBT friendly.

And no stink'in Cleaning Fee! Who thought up this idea? Probably the same folks that charge for bags on airlines!

Interaction with guests

I am always available to assist our guests.

Super comfy place. Josh and his family are super helpful hosts. 15/10! Close to the Caltrain station. The room is full of amenities. Private bathroom. Highly recommended.

Travelers's Rest was occupied with relatives so I stayed at Travelers's House. It is a large suite of rooms and even though you share the kitchen it is a very private place to stay with your own entrance.

Josh, was a great host. Very friendly and courteous and did provide anything and more than I needed for my stay, he made me feel like home. The room was great! Large enough, clean and with several things not easy to find in a normal room: drawers, desk, closet, carpet, and excellent Internet bandwidth. The bathroom was nice too, clean and large. The kitchen is awesome, large enough with access to coffee and pans to do your own cooking. I won't hesitate to stay again here when I come back

The house was meticulous and the room very comfortable. Great shower and bathroom as well. Josh has thought of everything and is a fantastic host! He even drove me to/from the office during my stay. I really enjoyed sharing stories over a glass of wine each night.
