Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house was perfect accommodations for us during our time in the SFO area. It was clean, well-equipped, and comfortable. Loved the wood den--what a cozy room! With all the activities we had going on leading up to our daughter's wedding, it was a great place to unwind at the end of several frantic days. Thanks so much for making it available to us. We definitely recommend it to anyone planning a stay in the area.

'Charming' doesn't do it justice

  • 5 of 5

This comfortable Belmont hillside home on Covington exceeded our expectations in so many ways. Our family of five felt right at home. It had everything we needed, and the weather, gardens, fruits and herbs, excellent markets - Lundardi's in particular - made for some great home dining. Easy access to open spaces near Crystal Springs reservoir and Filoli mansion was rewarding. On the business end, Bill and Sue were very welcoming, flexible and professional. Deposits were promptly refunded.

We would come back in a flash. Five stars, most definitely.

Perfect house for staying south of San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

Very nice clean home in Belmont, CA. My wife thought it would be dark after looking at the pictures but it was very nice. Nice split bedroom plan worked great for the 5 of us. Nice gardens, quiet street but close to major routes and the airport. We would certainly go back.

Perfect Home Away

  • 5 of 5

This was our first ever VRBO rental. We chose it because it provided a convenient location to visit our daughter. It exceeded our expectations in every possible way. It was comfortable, homey, and provided all possible amenities. We loved sitting on the front porch and relaxing. And the location half way up the hill gave a mountain feel to the location which we liked. We had friends join us for a few nights and the extra bedroom and bath made for a perfect arrangement. The owners were beyond responsive to our every request (we ended up extending our stay...twice!) We are already checking the availability calendar to plan our next stay. Thank you Bill and Sue! Oh, and yes, there are deer wandering in the neighborhood.

Comfortable well located house.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable house with all of the amenities that you would expect. There are fruit trees on the property which provide oranges and lemons and some herbs as well. The owners are very responsive and quick to attend to any problems that arise. Shopping is a 2 minute drive or a 15 minute hilly walk away.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great about this property from the location to the breathtaking and meticulous yard/garden (fresh orange and lemon trees!) to the meticulously clean interior to Bill's exceptional correspondence. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you for making our family trip great!

Lovely cosy house

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice cosy home which is bigger than the pictures imply. The house was very clean and well furnished, and the kitchen was equipped with everything you could possibly need. There were some useful items provided, including cleaning products, herbs/sauces, soap and toilet rolls. The garden is delightful, with lots of herbs and fruit trees - the lemon tree was a particular hit with us! We enjoyed fresh lemon juice everyday with the seemingly never ending supply of lemons it provided!

The owners were very responsive and helpful. The local area is safe, quiet and suburban, with shops a short walk down the hill, however, to access the train or other areas, a car is a must. We found the location very central for both SF city visits as well as exploring the Bay area.
