Short stroll to downtown San Carlos (3 blocks) - plenty of great restaurants and coffee shops. 4 blocks to Trader Joe's!
The original owner built several houses in the neighborhood. He kept the biggest lot for himself. We continue to make many updates to improve this one-of-a-kind beauty. This is an old house and does have it's quirks!
About San Carlos:
It is a tiny town - less than 6 square miles. After WWII, San Carlos experienced it's first growth spurts, becoming a popular suburban destination. In 1944, Dalmo Victor established the city's first large electronics plant, followed soon by Eitel McCullough. Establishment of these two firms quadrupled the population. We are now home to several technology companies, as well as many biotech and medical instrumentation firms. San Carlos is the northern end of Silicon Valley. Current population: 28,406

San Carlos is called 'The City of Good Living' ... come and find out why!
The climate here is ideal ... a little south of the fog, so it's usually sunny ... close enough to the coast to stay cool in the summer. Nice quiet street, yet close to everything in the Bay Area. Great walkable location... convenience abounds! Plenty of room to relax. Great home for entertaining guests. Large front lawns with fruit trees. Huge backyard with in-ground swimming pool.
My wife, newborn daughter, and mother-in-law and I stayed at this wonderful place. Very nice kitchen with high end commercial appliances. comfortable bed. renovated large tiled shower and bathroom. it was perfect for our needs. this is the entire upper level of the house. the basement is rented by another tenant. pool is old, not perfectly clean, but not disgusting. house furnishes chairs and lounge chairs to lay around the pool.
we rented the house for about a week. and it really fit our needs. it was well prepared from everything. I will start with the kitchen, it was in a very good condition and my really liked it. she found all she needed like the kitchen stuff and the spices except the grocery stuff for sure. rooms were cleaned and have all what we needed. there were extra blanked and pillows, and a nice extra foam mattress. it has two living rooms with fire place for each and one dining room. all of them were nice organized and well cleaned. the pool and the backyard were clean and nice; however, the wall of the pool needs more cleaning because it has spots.
the location is good. it's between San Fransisco and San Jose. So, you don't need to travel a lot to go to everything around you. there are shops, park, grocery markets, some banks, and etc close to you. walking distance from the house to most of them.
because we care about other people comfort who are living down stair, we were very careful when we are walking especially at night. the house makes noises when you walk and needs to be fixed and some of the windows as well, which is normal for a house has been built in 1930s.
last but not least, the house is what you are looking for in general.
A wonderful home in a great neighborhood location. The house was very clean with tasteful modern updates and included everything you needed. We enjoyed the great kitchen space preparing meals was easy and the area large enough for all to be together. Staying here a week gave us the time to explore Stanford, Santa Cruz and San Francisco. There is easy access to the 101, I-280, Caltrain, BART. Many restaurants within walking distance along Laurel Street; Trader Joe's walking distance and the park was great fun for kids as well as the pool and BBQ.
The owners are responsive and easy to work with, promptly responded to emails and questions. On our next trip we hope to book again.
A wonderful home in a great neighborhood location. The house was very clean with tasteful modern updates that enhance the ambiance of the "classic 30s" architecture. We enjoyed the great kitchen space and made most of our meals. Staying here a week allowed us to feel what it would be like to live in the Bay area. There is easy access to the 101, I-280, Caltrain, BART. Easy to explore the Bay area in all directions. Many restaurants within walking distance along Laurel Street; Trader Joe's walking distance. We walked to Burton Park almost daily with our grandson--the playground is great!
The owners are very easy to work with and promptly responded to emails and questions. Thank you for sharing your rental home with us!
This classic home was very comfortable and stylish. Though showing some signs of age, nothing interfered with our enjoyment of the house and grounds. Lots of open space and eating areas, so we never felt crowded. Terrific kitchen, contemporary, well-stocked with very high-end appliances and well-designed to accommodate 2-3 cooks. Media offerings included two TV set-ups and free easy-to-access wi-fi. We enjoyed the backyard and pool area because we had lovely weather. Excellent location - walking distance to Trader Joe's and numerous eateries and an amazing children's playground. Our hostess was helpful and responded quickly when contacted. We would definitely stay here again.
Lots of space and light and air. Clean and bright. No surprises. We stayed for about a week.
The layout of the house is good for gathering together and for getting away from each other, too. The kitchen (with dining table), family room, and formal dining room are adjoining so when we hosted the extended family for dinner a couple of times we could all eat and hang out easily together. The kitchen is very well equipped for cooking for a large group and it is laid out to serve buffet style so easily on the center island.
The bedrooms are distributed so that one can lay down and be well away from the action for a nap or a long sleep in. That was great because we had two young children in the group who needed midday rest.
The pool was enjoyed, though we didn't have hot days. We grilled in the backyard a couple of times, too.
When a lot of little cousins were around we ended up having great fun on the front lawn. The kids had balls to kick around and they played chase and wrestling as we old timers looked on snapping photos. The children also enjoyed the playground that was a couple of blocks away.
None of us watched TV, but we made full use of the good WiFi to get maps and traffic info for our outings.
The owner is a sweetheart. She was welcoming and helpful throughout, though we didn't really need to ask much - just what to do for trash pick up. Then, when I inadvertently mistook our departure day (thinking we had one more day - don't ask!) the owner was very calm and helpful as my family and I put on the quickest packing and tidying up effort imaginable.
We would certainly rent this home again and would recommend it to friends and family.
2 blocks to park with basketball, bocci, tennis courts, baseball, soccer fields, children's play structures, water feature, BBQ, picnic tables, community center, restrooms.
