We stayed at Briana's home over the Thanksgiving holiday and it was perfect. We were two adult couples, a 6 year old, and a 2 year old. At times we had other adults in the family join us for meals.
Judging by the pictures, we thought it would be a bit cramped, but the house is much larger than it seems. We had ample space for our little Thanksgiving dinner. The kitchen was very well-supplied with pots, pans, dishes, utensils, tools, etc, and the fridge was large enough for us to keep a bunch of foodstuffs.
The house was absolutely perfect for the boys. There were lots of toys and books, a bunkbed, child-sized desks, and a huge back yard with a playset and full-size trampoline. The boys had so much fun!
The house's location is great. It's in a part of San Mateo we were already very familiar with. Walking distance to fun parks and excellent restaurants. The drive to and from SFO is very quick. Having access to the house's long driveway was absolutely essential, since we had rented a car.
Lastly, Briana was very helpful, thorough, and transparent about the ins and outs of the house. I am allergic to cats, and although the house was set up to keep the cats confined to the laundry room and outdoors, I was expecting to have some issues. But the house was well-cleaned before we came, and the proof was that I had no issues at all.
Basically, the house was perfect for our needs, and was a big part of our holiday going so smoothly. Thanks Briana!
