The space

This listing is a guest bedroom and ensuite bathroom.

There is a loft with a ladder going to the top and a bed underneath it. There is also a desk in the room. There is room for 2 or even 3 but my preference is for 1 person.

Please note: I get a LOT of inquiries! In the spirit of sustainability, please don't send me a question unless you've read my whole listing. If there's something I haven't mentioned, then please do inquire!!

Here are some important requirements upfront:

1) You have a car or you don't mind using uber or lyft! Our house is not accessible by public transport.

2) You realize that we are 22 miles south of SF and 11 miles north of Stanford. I get many requests and questions from potential guests who want city or other locations etc.

3) You are a good mix of social and self-sufficient. While we love to share a dinner and conversation, we have really busy lives and you will need to be able to make yourself at home, take care of yourself here and even pick up a broom or load the dishwasher.

We are a community-minded progressive family living in a beautiful spot which we are happy to share.

Location: Our home is located in the hills of Belmont 30 minutes from San Francisco, 25 minutes from SFO, Stanford and the ocean at Half Moon Bay and about 20 minutes from the South San Francisco conference center. Our location is gorgeous. We have spectacular views of San Francisco and Oakland and our backyard leads straight onto wonderful and extensive hiking trails.

Our house is not the easiest to get to (but I'll give you great directions). It's a hidden treasure of a place; the deer found it first and apparently aren't going anywhere. They let us stay too.

Our Perfect Guest:
Come stay with us if you're a progressive-minded person coming to the area for a conference (or un-conference). You're especially welcome if you're moving here to get involved in the valley tech scene, to visit Stanford; if you're in start-up mode or an entrepreneur, scientist, artist or progressive educator. In fact, you're welcome if you have an adventurous and generous spirit and have something thought-provoking to say or a passion to share.


I have a hard time saying no to families since we are one ourselves but simply due to space constraints ideally you like kids but don't have them. Go ahead and try me though.

You also have the use of the open-concept kitchen, great room and laundry room.

Our kids don't go to school (we are Independent Learners) and we have a very wide variety of interests and pastimes. We are often very busy, sometimes at the house with other learners and friends, sometimes out exploring the Bay Area. Collectively we enjoy entrepreneurialism; Hi-tech and Bio-tech; Self-Science and Self-tracking; edu-hacking and bio-hacking; wine; progressive education; ballroom dance, West Coast Swing and Contact Improvisation.

How to book with us:
When you make a booking request, please make sure to include:

a) your full name
b) something about you and the other people in your party, so that I can find you online (that is my vetting process)
c) what you expect to be doing during your visit

We look forward to meeting and hosting you!

House Rules

We charge a cleaning fee for laundry only because we only accept guests who are willing to be a part of our family/community. That means cleaning up after yourself if you're cooking your own meals and lending a hand to help if you're joining us in what we're doing; You will likely be invited to join us for some meals if we're around, assuming the spirit is right (and we hope it is). We invite you to treat our house like your own and our time and space like you belong here.

Please absolutely no smoking!

Lisa and her family were fantastic hosts! I would highly recommend anyone to stay with them. I stayed in the queen suite room and could not have asked for better accommodations. The room was very clean and comfortable, the rest of the house was just as accessible. The locatio…
