We had a wonderful experience staying in the guest house. We spent 15 days there, and couldn’t have been more pleased. Marcia was the best, and made us feel almost like family.

Stayed in both guest house and north wing portion of main house. Peaceful and spacious, Marcia is very accommodating! The guest house especially is a great spot with skylights and a sauna.

My partner and I stayed in the guest house behind Marcia’s main house for one month. While the space had a beautiful view and nice amenities — such as the sauna and well-stocked Kuerig— there were definitely some down sides that make this space not worth the 5k that we paid for i…

Response from Marcia:
I have answered below each point discussed in the narrative above, since this is the first negative comment I have received after hosting around 50 guests. Yet, the biggest item of concern for me as a host is the disregard of property by these two college students, Nadine and her boyfriend. These guests admitted that they dripped a "take out curry food" across the carpet from the entry to the kitchen and then attempted to remove the spots with an incorrect solution which enlarged the stains. My professional carpet cleaner was unable to remove the stains and this negligence neccessitates replacing the carpet. It is only 5 years old. The carpet to be replaced is (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) square feet. I have an estimate from Home Depot for $3270 at 3.09 dollars per suqare foot to replace the same quality carpet. I will post the scanned estimate as a claim for $2000 considering that the carpet is 5 years old on airbnb. Corrections and comments to the above narrative: 1.Nadine paid $4510 for the one month visit not 5K. 2. Furniture was clearly shown on airbnb and was purchased at Joss and Main. 3. All amenities are clearly defined on the airbnb website. It is unclear what you expected and you did not communicate any further needs during your stay. 4. Sleeping on the floor. Only when I knocked on the door and messaged the guest prior to entering your space at 1PM in the afternoon with the housekeepers to clean and to deliver supplies did I find a child sleeping on the floor in a large cardboard box with no adult present. This darling Asian child stated that she was staying for the week and was from Nadine's boyfriends home town in the valley. No communication regarding this extra guest was forthcoming or stated and thus Nadine avoided a $10 per day fee, which I just ignored. 5. The 1200 square feet room space does have an icebox that Nadine mistaken thought was a wine cooler ( 4ft by 20 inches with no slots for wine) and separate freezer (2 ft by 20 inches which also can be used as an ice maker) adequate for 2 people. You did not state that it was a problem before you order a large ice box and large freezor and fit it into the space by moving the large antique food stage cabinet -WITHOUT MY PERMISSION OR KNOWLEDGE! I was gracious and said that I would accommodate you needs and pay for these two items. 6. Nadine never complained to me about the slow internet speed from the booster. After reading the only negative review I have received in 50 bookings, I am looking into the validity of this complaint. 7. I do not remember speaking badly about the last guest for this is very poor manners. I do remember mentioning that the previous guest used the CD player had switched the TV connections. 8. MY apologies for the neighbors thinking these two college students were housekeepers, one African American and one Asian. My neighbors are Asian but I think that they must have thought them to be very young. 9. Nadine had booked a house in Foster City that was not available the month she stayed in the "Guest House". She took permanent items such as salt and pepper that were the antique pantry that did not belong to her, especially since she mentioned that the pantry was poorly stocked. 10. As usual for two college students they must have had huge appetites and produced more garbage than other guests that have booked for 2 months with a baby! Two huge garbage cans are available for recycle item and wet garbage and are picked up once a week. Even with compaction, I had to hold there numerous bags of garbage in the main house for next weeks pick up. 11. The biggest item of concern for me as a host is the disregard of property. These guests admitted that they dripped a "take out curry food" across the carpet from the entry to the kitchen and then attempted to remove the spots with an incorrect solution which enlarged the stains. My professional carpet cleaner was unable to remove the stains and I will need to replace the carpet. It is only 5 years old. The carpet to be replaced is (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) square feet. I have an estimate from Home Depot for $3270 at 3.09 dollars per square foot to replace the same quality carpet. I will post the scanned estimate as a claim for $2000 considering that the carpet is 5 years old on airbnb. 12. I did express my displeasure with two items-the ruined carpet and the unannounced abandoned child. The remaining encounters were pleasant including pleasant message conversation prior to arrival, introducing these two guest to my family when they arrived, politely paying for the larger icebox and freezer, politely collecting their extra bags of garbage until the following pick up week and putting these bags of garbage in the large house from the garbage area, asking about their past college experience on their departure date and lastly politely informing them that I would have to get my carpet cleaner to remove the large stains from the entry to the kitchen or replace the carpet if needed.

Marcia's place is very awesome! The room is very clean and spacious and has a beautiful forest view. My parents stayed there for a week when they came visiting me. They took walks every morning and every afternoon in the forest and the beautiful neighborhood. They also cooked in …
