About this listing
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 14 and 15. 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.
No Smoking please
No smoking, no pets, no loud noise after 10 pm. We are fairly easy going people and are happy to make our washer and dryer available to guests staying more then three days. We have an ironing board and hair dryer available on request. I will generally not accept reservations more then thirty days in advance unless they are for a week or more.
Tiffany hat mich sehr freundlich empfangen. Die Beschreibung des Zimmers trifft genau zu und bietet alles was nötig ist. Ich konnte frei und unabhängig kommen und gehen. Das Quartier ist sehr schön und man kann San Mateo bequem zu Fuss erreichen.
Nicholas was there to greet us when we arrived and showed us around the place. It was very comfortable and exactly as listed. We got in late and had an early morning flight to catch, so we didn't get to spend much time exploring the area, but the place was a perfect stop for us. Thank you!

We reserved this space for our friends who were visiting us in San Mateo. We'd stayed here previously and really liked the environment, the atmosphere and the host as well, and so were happy that we were able to book this for our friends.
Nicholas was gracious enough to let our friends stay and he was a great host. Our friends really liked the space, the bed was comfortable, the place was clean, and our friends enjoyed playing with the cats that were around.
Nicholas greeted us upon arrival and gave us a tour around the room. The house is located in a residential area which is quiet and peaceful but within easy reach of downtown SF. The room is exactly as described, clean and cozy. There seem to have a number of nice restaurants close by, but we did not have the chance to try any. Overall a very nice stay and would recommend the room to anyone who is looking for a place to stay near SF.
Nicholas was a very accommodating host. He made sure that I knew where everything was located. The place is cozy and private with doors that open to the garden. I slept well and enjoyed meeting him. Thanks!
Nicholas and his wife have received us very friendly. The residential area is very quiet and the room is placed in the garden. All utensils for the bathroom were provided and even snacks & coffee were there.
I would recommend a stay in the room to everybody!
Thank you very much Tiffany and Nicholas!
