Soothing BR with shared bath in a modern home. Offers a jacuzzi tub, sunny deck, great cooking space and amenities. Situated between Redwood Shores and Palo Alto, close to shopping, hiking, bike trails and San Francisco. 1 friendly medium haired cat.

The space

Spacious bedroom, newly carpeted, queen bed with a zen-like feel. Big screen tv in bedroom, wifi, washer/dryer, remodeled kitchen with lots of cooking and counter space. The house includes one medium-haired cat who doesn't shed much.

Guest access

Guests will have access to their bedroom, shared bath, kitchen, and deck.

Interaction with guests

I'm quite busy so often not home but I am friendly, informative about the area and happy to share information and space with guests, while being respectful of other's space and privacy.

Other things to note

One quiet short-haired cat -- if you're allergic, this may not be the place for you though she sheds only when the weather starts changing and I brush her often.

Cable TV

House Rules

I welcome guests that are considerate of others and shared space. Good communication a plus. Smoking allowed on deck.

Very cozy house, friendly cat, lovely back porch. Some construction was going on while we were there that meant the water was out for a few days, but Valerie was very kind and apologetic for that. The bed is very comfortable, and the room is a good size and has plenty of storage space. It's about a 25 minute walk or 10 minute bike ride to the Caltrain and groceries if you're staying there without a car. Great home base for a 3-month stay!

Valerie's place was centrally located, quaint and quiet. Free easy parking. Would stay there again.

I had a great time (one month) at Valerie's place. It was comfortable and cosy. Valerie was very helpful and friendly and I enjoyed the company of the (extremely) affectionate cat. I would have appreciated a better equiped kitchen, fully functional stove and more modern washing machine, because I like cooking everyday and I try to take care of my more delicate clothing.

The room and the house was so cute and great! As a solo female traveler to SF, this place was safe, cozy and everything I needed! I had more than enough space with the room and closet for my things and in the kitchen and Valerie was always easy to reach if I had any concerns. Definitely recommend for a long term stay

Valerie is a wonderful host and very easy to communicate with, even while she was out of town for the first part of my stay. Her house is a cozy and quiet place to unwind after a day at work. The shared spaces were very neat; cleaning people were there twice in the six days I stayed. There's a great deck in the back and a very cute cat. It's about a 25-minute walk, a 9-minute bike ride, or a 6-minute trip by car to Caltrain. Thanks Valerie!

Valerie is a welcoming and kind host. The place is relatively walkable from the Caltrain station. The neighborhood is very peaceful and quite. The room and bathroom are as described - clean and tidy. There is some room for improvement in terms of cleanliness and organization in the common area and kitchen. Overall, it's a good place to stay in the bay area and the host is super sweet.
