About Robin

Hi there! Pleasure to meet you. Growing up as a navy brat, I moved around at least every three years from Guam, Southern California, Northern California, Northern Virginia near Washington DC and Newport, Rhode Island. Since college at UC Davis, I've lived in the bay area. I have a townhouse in Menlo Park and a single family home in Redwood City that I rent out, ideally long term furnished. I've really enjoyed meeting the folks I've rented to from all over the world and US and look forward to meeting you. I'm an actuary and financial analyst. When I'm not working, I love to trail run, bicycle (20-100 miles), kayak, read, and enjoy dinner parties with my friends. I'm open to becoming the property manager for your property.

Robin purchased this house in 2013

Why Robin chose Redwood City

My Woodside Plaza retreat is a lovely recently remodeled home on a tree lined street in a wonderful family oriented neighborhood. For those that like bicycling, you'll notice the many cyclists passing by on the way out to Woodside and beyond for their rides. The back yard offers a lovely retreat for outdoor dining and for kids to kick around the ball. Down the street you'll find tennis courts at the high school and a park for kids to play. I love walking/running around the neighborhood and in Woodside which is a couple blocks away. Downtown Redwood City, Woodside, Menlo Park, and Palo Alto are all close by for shopping, nightlife, restaurants and entertainment.

What makes this house unique

Currently this is my home that I make available for renters. I hope you enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Chris was a respectful guest who took great care of my property during his stay. He left the house clean and in great condition. I'm happy to host him again.

Beautiful home, convenient location, friendly host

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Robin's lovely home for three weeks during the holidays. The home is very nice. For our family of four, it was well laid out with a private master suite, two bedrooms upstairs, and a beautiful private yard. The kitchen is well stocked, and groceries and restaurants are very nearby. It is an easy neighborhood to walk, and 280 is very close, making it easy to get to both Southern destinations like Santa Cruz and into San Francisco (we were visiting friends up and down the Peninsula, so this worked well for us). Robin was very accommodating and friendly. We missed having our own home in Menlo Park, so Robin's lovely home was the next best thing!

Treat yourself to this Redwood City rental

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to all that the Peninsula has to offer. It has easy access to 101 & 280. It is beautifully decorated and well appointed with a great deck for enjoying dinners outside. I loved cooking dinners in the kitchen. It had the perfect combination of feeling luxurious and like my home away from home. (Bonus: Great bike riding routes begin from the back door!)

Great house

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed my stay. The house is exactly what I was looking for. The back yard deck was a pleasant place to relax in the evening. The location was great, easy to get on 101 or 280. The host was pleasant and communication was easy. Thanks for being a great host!

Redwood City is within the high tech meca of the bay area. Lots of great job opportunities, Stanford University, and lots of fun fun things to do outdoors in sunny northern California. Redwood City is known as best weather by government test. Great hiking/running/mountain biking trails and road bike routes are near by. In the summer, there is weekly free music at the Redwood City Courthouse Square and blues music at the Fox Theater many nights a week. Downtown RWC is bustling with many fun restaurants and movie theaters. Downtown Woodside is only 2.5 miles away.
