We have a two-bedroom, two-bath home on the Redwood City/Menlo Park border, and we're renting the guest bedroom with its own private bathroom. Our home has convenient access to Highway 101, and it's just 10 minutes to Palo Alto. San Francisco, San Jose, and the coast are about 30 minutes away.
The house has a beautiful back yard with Koi pond, redwood trees, a dozen fruit trees, relaxing sitting areas, and a hot tub. The bedroom has a newly refinished wood floor, queen bed, dresser, television, desk, and plenty of closet space. The house is equipped with Wi-Fi. The kitchen is available for prepping light meals, and the washer and dryer are at your disposal.
Across the street, the shopping center has restaurants ranging from Chinese and Mexican to pizza and sandwiches, along with a mom and pop bakery/ice cream shop. Of course, there is the ubiquitous Starbucks. In addition to other services, the center also has a handy grocery store to suit your needs.
For those who have a car, there is plenty of street parking with no time limitations. For those relying on mass transit, the house sits midway between the Redwood City and Menlo Park Caltrain stations. Caltrain is a comfortable and convenient way to travel most Peninsula towns from San Jose to San Francisco. The train drops San Francisco passengers off right on the waterfront just outside of downtown. SamTrans, the county bus system with service to San Francisco, stops just a block from our house.
On January 19, we adopted a two year old cat from the shelter. So far, he's adjusting very well to his
new digs. He's not allowed in the guest bedroom but if you have issues with kitties, you might want to take Pete, the cat, into account.
Very nice experience. Kevin and David are terrific hosts and we enjoyed our conversations with them. Fresh brewed coffee in the morning with a danish.
I was surprised they had a cat, but fortunately we love cats. The home is located adjacent to other homes on both sides. The road is busy and there is a small shopping area across the street. However, our room was very quiet and comfortable. The house is well kept and the back yard is lovely. My wife and I would stay again.
It is a wonderful place, this is my first airBnB experience and it is so great. also my wife and I both like the lovely kitty:)
We had really wonderful time with David, Kevin and Pete. They are really very nice host and recommended us a lot of place for visiting. Pete is an out-going lovely cat and we became very good friend during these days. I will certainly miss the days stay with such a warm family and will stay again if I go there someday.
You also must have a look at the garden, it is wonderful with so many interesting plants and trees. It belongs to those who love nature.
I always absolutely enjoy staying with David when I'm working at Stanford. It has become my go to place when I'm Palo Alto for work!
David has a lovely home, aesthetically furnished, in a convenient location if you have business in Redwood City. The room was comfortable and private, and there was no traffic noise to disturb sleep. David was an excellent hose. I especially appreciated his quick response to inquiries and follow-up requests for information, and how he went the extra mile to make things easy and convenient for me. I definitely recommend this Airbnb location.
David's place was great. David was very accomodating - making arrangements for us to come in even though we were coming in very late. He left croissants for us for breakfast, and it was a very nice experience for our quick 2 day stay.
David and Kevin were lovely hosts, graciously sharing their beautiful home. The backyard is a very calming space, we spent some time in the evening relaxing in the hot tub, looking up at the stars, and listening to the water trickling in the Koi Pond. Very nice. We were only there for one evening, but David and Kevin were so warm and welcoming that we were sad to have to leave when we did. Would definitely stay here again.
David was an excellent host and we had a great experience. The house is super clean and very comfortable. There is also a relaxing garden in the back that I wish we had been able to spend more time in. I would definitely stay again!
it was a great place to live, I was able to have a private part of house of my own and it was very comfortable and convenient for me. David is very friendly and helpful, and it was a great experiece to live here
We have had a perfect short stay with David. Everything was clean and he was really nice and communication was easy. Would stay there again anytime.
