About this listing

I offer a private serene room in a beautiful house in Silicon Valley. It comes with a shared bathroom with tub and shower and lots of free street parking.
There is a family room, a fire place to hang out, and a relaxing patio.

The space

I offer a private serene room in a beautiful house in Silicon Valley. The room comes with a shared bathroom with tub and shower and lots of free street parking. The room could comfortably fit two people.

There is a family room and a fire place to hang out, as well as a relaxing patio and two decks for enjoyable outside seating. I am an easy going, open-minded, well-traveled person, who enjoys good company and conversations.

The house is in a quiet neighborhood in Emerald Hills. Restaurant and shops are within 2-10 minutes driving distance. I offer free wireless internet, a library with TV, and coffee or tea if needed. Please don't expect absolute perfection though, because the price reflects what expectations should be. The hotel room prices in this area are $165 per night for a single room for three-star accommodations.

I love eating out and have lots of good recommendations for ethnic restaurants on the peninsula as well as in San Francisco.

There is easy access to 280 and 101 and you are within minutes in Palo Alto/Stanford. San Francisco is a 35 - 40 minute ride by car depending on traffic. SFO is 25 minutes away and there is Caltrain access.

Guest Access

Guest access

Guest have access to the kitchen with all the necessities for cooking and the refrigerator. They also have access to the laundry machine.
Guests are welcome to ask me for anything they need. I'm the kind of person who has just about everything on hand - my mother always said I should open a neighborhood store! But for my Airbnb guests, I won't charge anything of course.
Obviously, as well, absolutely everything that a top hotel would provide, like comb, razor, toothbrush and toothpaste, sewing kit (am I missing anything?) will be provided, just ask.

Interaction with guests

I interact with my guests as much as they want me to. I pride myself on having a sixth sense of what people want. A lot of the time it's privacy, so I provide a lot of quiet and privacy for my guests.

Other things to note

Parking to the right or in front of the house would be $5, because I have limited parking available. However, there is free street parking too.

The GOOD(s): - Maylen and everybody is this house is really friendly - The house is located in a really good neighborhood. The CONs: - This house is well OVERCROWDED. I haven't had the chance to meet everybody that lived at the house but I would guess between 8 to 12 people. - You're paying mostly for the room. There are so many people in the house that is practically impossible to receive guests or hangout in the living room (2 people are sharing the downstairs living room, and the upstairs living room is mostly for naps to whoever wants to take a nap). - Watch out to overnight guest fees! Overnight guest fees are $10/night only payable in CASH and not through AirBnB. Forget and you'll get a "friendly" reminder - DIRTY! Unfortunately keeping a place like that clean is nearly impossible with so many people sharing the same common places. Kitchen is used as bathroom and the bathrooms themselves are disgusting. - A lot of CARPETS! Okay this is not really a CON but I just thought it was interesting to share. The house is full of carpets everywhere (It personally didn't bother me but I know it will bother a lot of people). - NO SECURITY. I opened one of the drawers in my room one night, turns out the drawer has a child security system. Long story short, after trying to close the drawer for 10 minutes I gave up and decided to leave it open for the rest of my stay. One night, I come back and the drawer is closed!!!

Maylen did a great job of communicating with me and that made me feel comfortable. This was my first AirBnb. The house is on a beautiful street in quiet Redwood City. This was a nice economical place for me to stay for a week. I really enjoyed being in such a nice neighborhood, but keep in mind you would want a car to get around. This is not walkable to any services.
