GREAT find for too many reasons to list! Don't hesitate to stay at Steve's place. However, if you like a soft bed, this won't work for you--as the bed was very firm (which was fine for us). Thanks again Steve! We will definitely come back next time we are in town.

TLDR; Fantastic place, stylish, clean, comfortable. Okay.. This place is GREAT. I really liked it. I'd been staying at the Hilton (San Jose) for work prior to arrival, and this place far exceeded the Hilton. The place was very stylish, modern, super clean, and private. It was a very convenient location for me, in town on business. Stephen was great with communication, very approachable via email, but I was left to it for the duration of my stay (which is how I like it). If you're considering staying here, do it! Stephen has considered every detail, from the lovely, thick towels to the beautiful shower, to the mini fridge. I SO wanted to give 5 stars, but the pull-out bed didn't do it for me. It was adequately comfortable, and didn't bother me, but made it 4 stars over 5. (I'd give 4.5 stars if I could). That said, the super comfortable Temper-pedic pillows certainly help. Overall, would I recommend this place? Absolutely!

Steven's place is just as described - clean, pleasant and well-equipped. The snacks and wine are a thoughtful and much appreciated touch. Great magazine selection too.

This is a fantastic detached garage conversion in a lovely, quiet neighborhood of Redwood City. Although the sofa doubles as a bed, it is very comfortable as are the sheets, pillows, and bedspread stashed in one of the many cabinets within the living space. The bathroom is dominated by huge shower, containing a rain shower head in the ceiling at one end as well as a separate hand-held spray attachment affixed to the wall of the other end of the shower room. Very nice! Outstanding attention to construction detail made this a real winner for my wife and me.

Easy check-in and check-out. Stephen is a great host. This was my second time staying at Stephen's place and will stay again. Place is new, clean, parking is no problem and Stephen is a great host and accommodating.

Hi Steve, thanks for the feedback. I don't watch much sports but will check and see how much it costs to add a channel. What is the best channel to get?
