Lovely Thanksgiving Visit -2015

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion in San Mateo and found this location perfect for our needs. With our rental car we traveled to downtown San Mateo as well as south to Palo Alto and North into San Francisco.

The first few days were warm and sitting outside was lovely. Even when the weather became cooler, it was lovely to look at the water.

Preparing our breakfast and lunch was easy in the kitchen. The house has lovely art work and we were happy with our decision to rent a home. The owner kept in touch by phone during our stay although we never had any problems.

It was big enough to accomodate our family and was accessible by car for food shopping and restaurants. Hope to return as the opportunity arises.

Terrific Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family experienced a terrific week at this beautiful home! The setting was peaceful, the views extraordinary and the home very accommodating! Homeowner Nancy was very gracious, responsive and supportive at every contact - including the brief meeting during our visit! The outdoor kitchen area was well utilized to enjoy family dinners and morning coffee with the waterfront setting the tone. I would highly recommend this property and homeowner Nancy for any future visits to this area! Thanks Nancy!

We just got back from a two week stay at this rental home and it was perfect. The house is beautiful, clean and spacious, and the location couldn't be better. My family had the pleasure of meeting Nancy, and she could not have been more gracious and accommodating. This home is extremely warm, inviting, and relaxing, and I would highly recommend it!

This was our first experience renting a vacation home, and it was WONDERFUL. Since our first contact with Nancy she was amazing. Always providing all kind of informations and worry with our family well being make us feel very comfortable even before we get there. Nancy's home is just AMAZING. Very well located in a quiet neighborhood with an extraordinary backyard to the lake. Our favorite spot was the outside living/kitchen area, from the breakfast to the dinner this spot was just perfect to spent time with the family. Nancy did a great job with the day to day information at the house as well providing her phone number. We would HIGHLY recommended this home and if we have the opportunity in the future we would like to stay here again.

Thank you for everything Nancy..

The perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with renting a "vacation" home, and it could not have been better. Our son's wedding ceremony was taking place at Coyote Point, so Nancy's house was the perfect location, just about 10 minutes away. Also, we were making 12 pies for the wedding, so it really helped having 2 ovens (1 inside/1 outside). Our favorite spot was the outside living/kitchen area, perfect for sipping that first cup of coffee each morning and watching the sun rise, and it didn't take us long to feel "at home." Nancy did a fantastic job providing information for the day to day, as well as her phone number and emergency numbers. When friends and siblings came the weekend of the wedding, the house provided a relaxing place for us to gather rather than an impersonal hotel lobby. We would highly recommend this home and if the opportunity arose in the future would love to rent here again. Thanks, Nancy!

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We truly felt at home here, especially liking the large living room, which had large glass doors that opened to an outdoor living room, kitchen and dining table with a beautiful view of the lagoon, the homes across the water and the sky. Also has a very cosy, very small backyard building, perfect for writing or quiet contemplation. The location is very accessible to the 101 freeway and a few minutes drive to the shopping and restaurant area of San Mateo.

Why Nancy Smith chose East San Mateo

This is a wonderful property for a long term rental. It has been my family home for many years but I will be out of the area for a while, so will be looking for a long term renter.

What makes this house unique

Fantastic style and comfort, with an unbeatable location


Going north or south, east or west, this is a great location. Twenty minutes north to San Francisco and 20 minutes sound to Palo Alto/San Jose area. 20 minutes west to the Pacific Ocean and 20 minutes to the east bay. Extensive shopping, groceries within 5 minutes. Plus, the location on the water is beautiful. Sit out on the deck or patio and enjoy the occasional boater or water skier. This is a magnificent setting and a beautiful home; casual elegance.
