Great for Business Travel!

  • 5 of 5

This is hands down one of the nicest places that I have stayed for the cost and the location. The home has been remodeled so nicely and is walking distance to shopping, and mass transit. It is, if you are a runner a GREAT flat, safe neighborhood for a short 3 - 5 mile jog!!

The hosts are very responsive and are full of information about the area! I work in Fremont and have several other meetings in the San Francisco area, and it was very easy to drive to both locations. IF I wanted i could walk 3 blocks and be at the station for mass transit. This is a gem!!!!

This home should always be a hit on your radar as the best place to stay for business travel in the San Francisco area.

Great house!

  • 4 of 5

Had a very pleasant stay here - the house was perfect for 3 guests. All bedrooms were great size with their own bathrooms and clearly recently redone/brand new. House is also walking distance to the Whole Foods which was very convenient. Katrina was also very quick to get us hair dryers when we needed them. One negative is the living room could use a second couch for lounging and the TV channels are limited. But otherwise would absolutely stay here again!

Unseasonably warm weather during my stay, but Katrina was super responsive and brought over fans and portable AC. Awesome. Walking distance to CalTrain, Grocery and Restaurants. Home was completely remodeled and beautiful. Would stay again!
