Guestbook comments from the manager

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 and comfortable home, near to stores, surrounded by roses

  • 5 of 5

Our family (two parents working at Stanford, two teenagers on vacation) stayed in this charming house for our fourth time this summer. The home has been in the Badgett family for decades, now rented out permanently and lovingly tended by family members. Comfortably carpeted throughout the living areas, the house contains several older, “character” furniture pieces with carefully crafted textiles to complement them. The kitchen is better appointed than many in which we have stayed, with a new ceramic-top cooker and many tools and gadgets. The new High Efficiency washing machine with dryer is an excellent upgrade. The two bathrooms are clean and bright, furnished with copious linens as well as shampoo and body wash.

The garden affords secluded spots to sit and enjoy the summer sunshine and breezes, including a porch at the front and a picnic table and chairs out back. In July, the garden is a riot of roses, with fresh herbs and lemons for the picking. The garden is also lovingly tended by the family, an attention that has paid off in beautiful displays of color and scent for visitors to share.

Centrally located on the peninsula, the house gives very easy access to 280 and 101, the freeways that run its length between San Francisco, San Jose and beyond. It is also extremely easy to take 92 over the mountains to the pacific coast; turn southwards to beat the ocean mist and to find some of the most beautiful golden sand beaches one can imagine. If public transport is preferred, the stop for the local bus is just steps away, and the station for Caltrain, the commuter train which connects to San Francisco to San Jose, is about 30 a minute walk away. Closer to home, there is an excellent shopping center within walking distance down the hill, with restaurants, coffee and bagel shops, and two supermarkets, one selling specialty Italian and other goods.

This comfortable house has become for us quite literally a “home from home”, one to which we hope to return whenever business brings our family back again to the Bay Area. Whether you are visiting the peninsula for a business trip or for a vacation, we hope you enjoy this exceptional home as much as we do.

Wonderful stay in Belmont.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Belmont. The house was spotless and was well equipped with everything needed. We especially loved sitting on the front porch, sipping morning coffee in the sunshine and enjoying the beautiful flower garden. We would love to return!

Cozy spacious, complete with everything cottage!! Fabulous stay!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Belmont house was just heaven! The house is adorable and everything is there that you need, comfy beds and all kinds of extra quilts, thick bathroom towels and every kitchen utensil you need. The house is very spacious, with bedrooms and bathrooms on either side of house with living in between, very private for everyone. Incredible huge yard spaces and beautiful flowers everywhere plus a Meyers lemon tree!! Right over the hill and down to half Moon Bay and route 1 and access to the whole coast in less than a half hour!! Shopping at bottom of Hill and restaurants...yet totally private spot, could not be more perfect!! Great hosts, all the information you could need for you there, great communication,easy check in check out. Would love to stay again!

Thank you to Sue, Bill and Stacie for a great stay two weeks ago! Our first impression of the beautiful and fragrant gardens in the front of the house set the tone for a very relaxing stay. Their home is beautiful; spacious; very clean; organized; and more than met our needs with all the provided conveniences as listed. Sue has an extremely informational binder in the dining room with information about the inside and outside of the house; the surrounding areas and a very interesting history of Belmont Heights. Also, Sue was very pleasant on the phone and gave us some great travel advice! The stairs leading to the front door of the house are very wide and I had no problem going up and down even though I am very out of shape. Their house in Belmont Hills is conveniently located to so many areas we visited during our stay there (San Francisco; Half Moon Bay Beach; Muir Woods; Napa Valley; Golden Gate Bridge and San Jose). The area is very safe and everyone we encountered in Belmont Hills was very pleasant. The proximity to San Francisco Airport was extremely helpful as we had to leave early on the last day. We would definitely like to stay here again our next trip to San Francisco.

Charming home met all our needs

  • 5 of 5

This lovely house was just what we needed when we decided to travel to Belmont for our grandson's 1st birthday. Three bedrooms, and all the beds were comfy. Master bath has shower; guest bath has tub. I was so glad to have a bathroom with an actual tub!! There is ample storage space for clothes and personal belongings. All linens are provided with lots of extra blankets. The kitchen seemed pretty updated with new appliances. Dishes, glasses, pots, pans etc provided and some spices. But no food whatsoever. So if you plan to arrive late, bring some snacks, canned soups, peanut butter, bread, or something. If you don't have a car, the grocery store is a hike. It's not far, but it is a very hilly area, so you'd better be in shape. The grounds are lovely with lots of flowering plants and herbs and numerous seating areas. The owners were very easily reachable if we needed anything and obviously care about this property very much. I would definitely recommend it to anyone going to the area. Be aware that there are about 10-12 steps to climb up to the front door, so if you have heavy luggage that could be a problem for the elderly. We look forward to staying here again when we visit.
