Snatch it up while you can- a home away from your home. Quiet, comfortable and spacious.

Paget't place was wonderful! It was easy to access the keys upon check in, and it was nice that we were able to arrive at whatever hour we needed to. The place was very clean and set up for us already. There were so many great aspects of the place, such as shampoo and body wash provided, kitchen utensils provided, and coffee, tea, and oatmeal for breakfast. Overall, it was an amazing stay.

Really nice hosts and a very cozy apartment. Only thing that wasn’t all great was the beds. The air madress and sleeping couch could have been better. But a great place!

Clean, comfortable and thoughtfully appointed, Paget's home is a great value. The only problem we had with it were the steps between the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen, which were hazardous for us when getting up in the night in an unfamiliar place. Of course, folks with better balance and less arthritis wouldn't find them a problem, though it would have been nice to have known. There were snacks and coffee, comfortable sleeping arrangements and local area information. Communication was timely and thorough.

This was our first Airbnb! Many things were perfect about the home, and a couple of things that did not work for us. The communication was spot on, the area was quiet, the bedding was very nice, and I found a parking place right across the street even though we came in rather late. I felt very comfortable and safe here. What didn't work was that I have two teens and the pull out in the front room was not long enough or wide enough for both of them. I liked the privacy the bedroom provided, but not the steps that needed negotiating within the home. So I guess it just came down to the configuration wasn't perfect for my group this time. All and all a very nice home.

Paget and Philippe are a couple in their mid-forties who are blessed with a beautiful almost six year-old son. Philippe is a chocolatier, relationship coach, and event producer hailing from Quebec. Paget has been teaching ESL and literature for many years and was born in Mountain View, so she is a Bay Area native.

Paget and Philippe have traveled to many countries outside of the USA (including Thailand, India, Guatemala, and Fiji). Paget also lived in Morocco (doing Peace Corps) for two years. We live in a friendly and diverse neighborhood and love being with all types of people.
