Interaktion mit Gästen
When I am there, I love to host, but (as a slight introvert) will happily respect your solitude and privacy as well. The house usually has a casual, fun, entertaining atmosphere.
I sometimes stay in the second bedroom, sometimes rent it out. If it is occupied, you will have another (positively reviewed) housemate or so.
I enjoy meeting and hosting diverse people (international travelers, LGBTQ, old, young, etc.)
A housekeeper may arrive between 10am and 6pm (usually early afternoon) to clean the common areas and prepare (the other room) for the next guest.

There is no TV, but feel free to stream video to your laptop/tablet over the fast WiFi. The bathroom is shared, but the shower/bath has endless hot water.
You may be sharing the house with another guest or so, possibly me. If you book both rooms, you get the whole house to yourself (and a 10% discount).
Please make yourself at home, be considerate, and enjoy yourself while you are here!
Please try to keep the common areas tidy for others. We are happy to vacuum, strip beds, and launder sheets, towels, etc., between guests.
Approved pets are OK with the deposit, please just clean up after them. (Again, we will sweep/vacuum.)
No smoking anywhere on the property, please. The paint is new, and we don't want a lingering smoke smell.
If you read this far, please mention green m&m's in your inquiry, and I won't repeat this stuff to you, and you're already likely to get a great guest review. :)
It is fine to stay later than the "checkout time" of 11am, but please finish any laundry and pack before 11am so we can launder linens before the next guest arrives. You can stash your packed stuff longer (possibly days) -- just ask where.
I've been a Silicon Valley denizen for 20+ years now, working most recently at a startup, , TiVo, Apple, and NeXT. I'm an engineer at heart, and love to figure out, design, and build things. And I'm super helpful.
I'm only in San Mateo part-time, often away caring for my family in Idaho. When I am local, I am a friendly, helpful host, but will happily respect your privacy if that is your preference.
I really only speak high-school Français and Español, but I enjoy trying (if you are willing to listen to me mangle your language).
