Cozy downstairs bedroom with private bathroom and separate backyard entrance. Great residential neighborhood, walking distance to downtown San Mateo and the train station. Regular queen bed with adjoining full bathroom, french doors lead to the back yard. Small but comfortable space, wi-fi available. The household does have two cats and there are chickens in a coop in the back yard. Ample street parking, we also have loaner bicycles available. We have installed a small refrigerator and microwave in the laundry area off the guest room.
We have an older single family home in the Baywood knolls section of San Mateo, 10 miles from SFO, 20 miles south of San Francisco, 20 miles north of Palo Alto and Stanford University. My wife and I live upstairs and have my stepsons part time, two well behaved boys ages 12 and 14. We are happy to visit and orient you to the neighborhood and the bay area, or not, as you wish. We both are frequently at work or out of town. Downtown San Mateo is a 15 or 20 minute walk with a vibrant restaurant and social scene. Cal trains runs from downtown San Mateo to San Francisco at least every hour or so, $5 each way. We do have a Sam Trans bus stop two blocks away that runs on weekdays.

Nick and Tiffany are wonderful hosts, very helpful and warm. The garden view room was cozy, with all the amenities we needed--with a wonderful shower. We especially enjoyed the back garden, where we could sit at the picnic table and enjoy the sunlight and breeze. They are sited in a quiet lovely neighborhood, close to downtown San Mateo, only minutes from the 101, an ideal location. We had a great stay!
Nick and Tiffany were great hosts! The room was quite private and because of the separate entrance it was like having the whole place to ourselves. The bed was also very comfortable, and the internet quite fast!
We had a lovely stay in this house, the room and bathroom are very private, so we could feel free to come and go without disturbing the hosts, who were really nice in welcoming us and available regarding the check-in. It is also very well located, in a quite street but also close to San Mateo downtown.
The setting was delightful and quiet. Accommodations included a small bedroom, connected bathroom and small kitchenette. Access was through a side gate and via a lovely backyard. Other then being received by Nicholas, I didn't see anyone in the household for the 3 days I was there.
We were very happy with our accommodations. The private room overlooked a lovely and peaceful garden view which was great to wake up to every morning. The room felt new and fresh, and the private bath was nicely finished with a wonderful shower.
Our hosts, Tiffany and Nicholas, were extremely accommodating and friendly. We had some special needs and they were quick to respond with a smile. This is our second stay here and we will definitely book them for future travel to the area.
Great stay. Nick and Tiffany were very nice, friendly, and welcoming. Nice studio all for you! Would highly recommend their place.
This was a good place to stay for quick overnight. The room was clean and the small kitchenette was perfect for all my needs. The neighborhood was absolutely beautiful. Took a nice evening walk and enjoyed the architecture.
Excellent second stay, just as good as the first one :) recommended.
This was pretty much perfect for my needs this weekend. Nick was great in getting me settled and making sure I had everything I needed, including his personal kettle for me to make tea with... there is a kitchenette with fridge and microwave... but I didn't need either - just a kettle.. and he made sure I had that. Which was really great.
Bathroom was perfect, bed was comfy, I had my own door to come and go from. Being at a conference all weekend meant I didn't really want company when I got home and they were great just leaving me to myself.... but were still totally available if I needed them.
One thing I would say is that it is a little noisey with them upstairs on wooden floors... I sleep with earplugs so it was all good... if you're a light sleeper I'd suggest you do the same! But all in all I was very, very happy in my stay here. Thank you so very much!
A very pleasant room with private bathroom (fantastic shower!) and a very decent kitchen for a brief stay (sink, microwave, one of those cool coffee/tea makers where you use prefab pods, small fridge). Tiffany is a delightful host. Hearing the family up above makes one feel right at home! :)
