We had a very lovely stay. And the house sits in a very quiet and convenient location. Marcia is a great host.

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 it. Our host oscillated between charming and condescending/annoyed for no apparent reason. This confused us quite a bit. When we first arrived, the space was messy and sparingly stocked. The furniture and whatnot were a mismatch of old antiques and incredibly cheap furniture. The bed slats kept on breaking off for the whole month and were even cracked before we got there. At one point we had to sleep on the floor. When we first arrived, we were immediately disappointed at the false advertising. On the host’s page, she stated that she had a fridge and freezer— something that we even messaged her to confirm about. We found out that there were merely very small wine cooler and even smaller ice maker. On move in day, we went out to buy our own fridge and freezer, which the host later reimbursed us for. The pictures she provided were also deceiving in that we were not initially allowed to use the swimming pool nor hot tub, even though it was included in the listing. Also, the internet speed was only 2 Megabits per second (average is 80-100 Megabits), which is obscenely slow (especially for a place this expensive). Even more, Marcia would often come into our space unannounced. We found this a huge invasion of privacy and she didn’t seem to understand that it actually was not okay. She also talked badly about previous guests, which we thought was in poor taste. When my partner and I were taking out the trash, the neighbors mistook us for cleaning people. We found this to be an offensive assumption. Not to mention that there was never enough space in Marcia’s one small garbage can to accommodate for our own garbage. When we were leaving, she said that it would be a “huge inconvenience” for her to have to ‘restock’ the pantry. I only remember ramen noodles and some tea in the pantry when we first arrived. Keep in mind that we stayed for a month, so she shouldn’t have been surprised that food was gone anyways. I guess the food wasn’t for us? Overall, we did not have a great experience with this AirBnB and we hope that this review serves as a caution to others.

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) 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) 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 the room, with various tools Marcia provided. Also, Marcia is very nice! She is very friendly and she took good care of us. We are so glad that we met her and had some nice talk! I will definitely recommend Marcia's place to our friends!

Petite, secluded studio with basic kitchen. Lovely host, great steam shower, and beautiful view into eucalyptus forest. Feels like you're in a treehouse. Close enough to Burlingame/Airport, uber found us, but having a car was helpful.

Our host Marcia was absolutely wonderful, a pleasure to talk to and always making sure we had everything we needed. We arrived late in the evening and since she was waiting up for our arrival we didn't stop for groceries. She had put fresh bread and everything needed for a nice breakfast in the morning as well as a snack upon arrival! The bed was so comfortable and the shower amazing! The property is relaxed, a bit rustic but comfortably elegant in a quiet secluded neighborhood and close to walking trails. You will need a car but the peace and quiet from staying here is worth it!
