About Rahel Michael
Dear Traveler, Thank you for considering my home for your next travel accommodation. It means a lot to me and I appreciate it. My name is Rahel Michael and I hope to be your next host. My number one priority is to provide you with the best possible service and make you feel at home and hopefully put a smile on your face. We are a family of five, with three kids, including our twin daughters Melody (11) and Mikal (11), and our little princess named Melia (4). I am stay-home mom married to a wonderful husband who is executive in the tech industry. I am relatively new to these sites but I have been managing our rental properties for a while. We used to live in this house for 15 years until we moved to another home in the area. I love this house and I love the neighborhood. I hope you will too. If you would like to make reservation, please send me your request with a brief note about your group and the dates you would like to make reservation for, and any questions or comments you may have. I will get back to you very quickly. Thank you! Rahel Michael

Our family of 7 stayed in this house during a wedding event. The home was beautiful, well-maintained and cozy. We were so busy with wedding events that we didn’t cook or spend much time here, but it would have been great for a quiet retreat.
The hot tub was wonderful and Rahel was a great host. Would definitely stay again.
Thank you for staying with us, Laurie, and for the 5-star review! I am glad you had a wonderful stay here and that the wedding went very well. You left the house super clean. Thank you! We will be pleased to welcome you back when you come to the area again. Best wishes and thank you! --Rahel

Loved out stay in Union City. House was clean, hot tub was a nice add for winding down after long days. Close proximity to everything you need, and a great starting hub to explore San Francisco and the San Jose area.

Thank you for staying with us, D'Arcy. We are glad that you found everything great and you had a good time hear. One thing though, we did not hear back from you acknowledging receipt of a couple items we shipped per your request, which you forgot. It took us some 2 hours to go to PO and back, was long line there. Shipping cost us more than the value of the items. Anyway, we are glad we could help. Thanks. --Rahel
