Hello! Thanks for looking at our listing!
Please read my description in its entirety to see if we have a potentially good fit!
We look forward to hosting guests of different backgrounds and welcome you to our sunny tranquil family home in San Mateo with a view of San Francisco Bay. Our home is spacious and cozy, and is very kid friendly. Our home is ideal for vacationers or those on business, and we will always make you feel at home.
We are in an ideal location, close to hwy 101 and 280, and public transportation.We are 20 miles south of San Francisco, 30 miles north of San Jose, 36 miles west of the Tri Valley and 13 miles from half Moon Bay and beaches. We are 10-15 minutes from SFO.
If you must use public transportation, Sam Trans #53 passes close to here.
A little more about the location: You are within walking distance to the Laurelwood shopping center which includes Piazza's grocery store, and several eateries. The College of San Mateo, and Sugarloaf Park, which has hiking trails, are nearby. There is also a farmers market at CSM on Saturdays featuring lots of organic produce.
Our perfect guest is someone who loves life and sharing good conversation. We enjoy learning about different backgrounds and interests! While we would love to share our space with you, and will most likely invite you to join us when we are around, we also appreciate very self sufficient guests! We are a very busy family and need our guests to make themselves at home and take care of themselves. This means tidying after yourself, like loading and unloading the dishwasher, and being respectful of our home.
We do not allow any smoking on the property, inside or outside. Also, we have no TV, so bring your laptop! We have plenty of toys to share with your children- we just ask you to clean up after they enjoy them.
A little about us: We are an active household, homeschooling our young children. We speak English and Italian in our home and we have a passion for cooking, especially with fruits, veggies and herbs from our own garden. We love to experiment with gluten free international vegetarian cuisine. We love art, books, gardening, inventions and creativity in general. The animals in residence are fish, a leopard frog, and four lovely chickens who will lay eggs soon! (Then we will share fresh eggs with our guests!)
About the accommodations:
A private bedroom upstairs. There is a double bed that can sleep two, a twin futon, and if need be, there is room on the floor for a fourth person, ideally a child, on air mattress or camping mattress. There is a lovely view of the bay from this room. The primary sound you can hear from this peaceful room is the fountain running in our garden. There is a bathroom en suite.
You also have use of our garden and patio, kitchen and laundry.
Organic coffee and tea available.
Cleaning fee: There is a $25 cleaning fee per stay.
Children are included in the extra charge per additional guest.
How to book with us:
a) your full name(s): include everyone in your party.
b) something about you and the other people in your party, so that I can verify you online.
c) what you expect to be doing during your visit
We look forward to meeting and hosting you!
