    My first mention must be about Rahel. Rachel is the nicest person I have dealt with in some time. While be a professional, she manages to project warmth and an extremely welcoming demeanor. She is a solid gold person and welcomed us with open arms. She met everyone in our family last week and was a charmer to the kids. I know this has little to do with the home but first impressions are significant. We were welcomed, accommodated, assisted and made to feel like the home was our own. Rahel is the landlord from heaven. The home is pretty much as it appears in the photos. It is beautiful and spacious. Everything was clean and neat. The inside is impeccable and the outside well-maintained. Our family from several states were all so impressed! The house location is pretty convenient as well. There is anything you need within minutes. We traveled all over the region from San Francisco to San Jose to Santa Cruz, Livermore, Dublin and Pleasanton. The house was geographically convenient. The BART station is close and BART takes you to Downtown SF for $12. Our was a perfect stay. Look at the other choices out there and you will see that this home is a great option. I am more than satisfied with our choice and would come back without a second thought. Bb 18 August 2016 - 16:22:00

    Die Vermieterin ist sehr hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend. Der in vorherigen Kritiken erwhnte Empfangskorb hat auch auf uns gewartet. Kleine Leckereien nach einem langen Flug. Perfekt. Super gepflegte und saubere Unterkunft. Pool jeden Morgen zum Schwimmen genutzt. Gerne wieder 26 July 2016 - 15:46:00

    First off all the reviews before this one are true, about the owners Rahel and Mulugeta and the condition of the house. Everything worked out well for my mother and family of eight adults. The house was roomy and very comfortable. Be prepared to take your shoes off inside the house , and relax and enjoy your stay in this affordable gem of a home in the Bay Area. 02 December 2016 - 13:50:23

    My family and I had a wonderful vacation to California. This house was beautiful, exactly as the pictures showed. We had 6 people traveling so the four bedrooms and 3 full baths were perfect for us. We especially liked having a bedroom and full bath downstairs. Rahel and her husband met us at their home the day we arrived. She even left us a basket of goodies and bottled water in the refrigerator. She also checked on us during our stay to see if we needed anything. She definitely makes her guests feel welcome. The neighborhood was great and was close to several restaurants. We went to Menlo Park and Palo Alro several days and the commute was easy. We will definitely stay at this house again and highly recommend it! Rahel is excellent to work with and she responds very quick to any questions I ever had. 13 April 2016 - 03:11:00

    Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home with our family. Everything was cozy and comfortable and your hospitality while we were there was wonderful. We are grateful for meeting you and for welcoming us in your home. The location was perfect for all our touristy destinations. And the shopping center minutes away had an abundant amount of shops. Again, thank you !! What wonderful memories we will bring home from here!!! 18 October 2016 - 17:14:00

    This home totally lived up to the beautiful photos the owner had posted, and the backyard is professionally landscaped. Rahel, the owner, was there to greet us personally. She showed us everything we needed to know about the house, and had the most wonderful basket of goodies waiting for us on the kitchen counter. We were very appreciative of that basket considering that we had spent the entire day traveling, were tired, and unfamiliar with the area. We could rest up and start out fresh the next day. There were a few hiccups we'd like to mention. We didn't have use of the hot tub for the week. Rahel had noticed it wasn't working and had a repairman come to look at it. He had to order a part, and it hadn't come in. The pool had some sort of hose that cleaned the bottom all week long, but the skimmer that took bugs off the surface never worked all week. The upstairs window screens needed repaired. Other than those three things, we had no concerns. The house is conveniently located just off Dyer Street. Everything you need, restaurants, movie theaters, grocery stores, etc., can be found on Dyer St. We used this house as a "home base". The Giant Redwoods were about five hours to the north, so we got a hotel room there for one night, then came back to the house and pool the next day. San Francisco is only an hour or so away. The San Jose Airport was only about twenty minutes away. We had a great trip and will definitely book with again. 08 June 2016 - 15:36:00

    We arrived at this Union City home and were greeted by great owners and with fresh flowers and freshly picked lemons. The house itself was beautiful and large, fulfilled all of our needs, and was centrally located for us to access San Francisco, Monterey/Santa Cruz, and the wine country. It was also close to so many restaurants, grocery stores, and shopping. Our little guy even braved a dip in the pool in February weather. We're hoping the house is available next year too! Thanks for great experience Rahel. 25 February 2016 - 13:54:00
  9. We have had the pleasure of staying at Rahel's home in the second week of August 2015. We absolutely loved it. The house is very beautiful, clean, organized and impressive. The home was well-furnished and stocked. We loved it. We had a great time relaxing in the backyard by the swimming, gazebo and hot tub. Rahel was very nice and welcoming throughout and readily available. She even gave us welcome gift basket filled with wine, cheese, fruits, chocolate, candies, popcorn, etc. The fridge was stocked with water for us. We really appreciate it. We would definitely stay in this home again. Highly recommended. 15 August 2015 - 17:02:46

    Recently spent 3 nights in this perfect rental. The house is large and has plenty of space for a large group. The rental is spotless and in a quiet neighborhood. Rahel is an excellent host . if you need to spend time in the Bay area you would not go wrong to stay here. We will stay here again in the future. 09 February 2016 - 21:29:37

    Host welcomed us and showed us around. The house is BEAUTIFUL and clean. The welcome basket with snacks, fruits, wine and nuts was a big surprise. Bottled water was also provided. Definitely an A+ home. 11 April 2016 - 04:07:44

    My family and I just finished our vacation in California. We stayed in Rahels home the last two days and we really enjoyed our stay! The house is beautiful, and the backyard with swimmingpool and hot tub was perfect for relaxing. Rahel and her husband were excellent hosts, nice and welcoming. We even got a welcomebasket with wine, fruit and goodies:) We would absolutely come back another time, and we really recommend this home for others. 11 August 2015 - 21:42:20

    My familys first Thanksgiving in San Francisco and we had a fantastic time. Thank you Rahel for making it happen. Your home is warm and very inviting and comfortable. We all stayed around the kitchen making Thanksgiving dinner. Our MOST MEMORABLE holiday away from home and were all grateful! 28 November 2017 - 16:42:00

    There is not much i can add to the previous reviews: The house is fantastic, Rahel was extremely nice to deal with and was very helpful. The location is great to get away from the city and relax but also ideally situated to the freeways and BART station to get in and out of San Fran. The house itself has everything you could possibly need, would highly recommend staying here. Thank you Rahel, it was the perfect place to end our vacation. 11 September 2017 - 16:23:00

    My party of 7 stayed for a week at this wonderful house. Everything was indeed pristine upon arrival, and we were met and shown around by the gracious owners, who were kind enough to provide a "welcome basket" of goodies for us. First, the location is on a corner, very conveniently just enough away from the bustle of shopping malls nearby to provide a nice, quiet stay. The neighbors are really nice, and the atmosphere is old-time suburbian U.S.A. in the best sense. The rooms are spacious and well-cared for, and the photos do not do justice to just how nice they are. Someone in an earlier review mentioned this house as being "pricey", but that is just not fair. For 4 rooms and 3 baths and all this spaciousness, plus a pool and hot tub, not to mention the ideal location: this is as fine a deal that anyone can find on VRBO! The BART is very close by, and there is bus service to the station from just around the corner. The traffic is heavy in rush hour on the freeways, so one can easily park at the BART for a nominal fee and avoid all the hassles of a day in the City simply by taking the BART. Still, the traffic is not that bad other than the morning and evening commute jams. One thing: as with most vacation homes, there are no phones on the premise, so some form of communicating device is essential. We were doing fine until one member had his SmartPhone stolen in Japantown, and that was the only one that was truly capable of calling from anywhere, so we were in tough straits until we got back to the house where we were able to take advantage of the excellent Wi-Fi system that let our other devices work fine. In all, top recommendation! 24 February 2017 - 05:13:00

    Host has included amenities to make this very comfortable. Location is convenient to stores, restaurants and hwy (mile or so). Plenty of room for each of us to have our own space. Kitchen is large as well. We greatly enjoyed our stay! Only minor drawback is Amtrack blows its whistle in the distance as it comes through town. 29 December 2017 - 18:41:00

    Property owners are great people who accommodated an early arrival, warm greeting and showed us around the beautiful home. I'd highly recommended the property and it's my only choice anywhere in the bay area. Excellent value! 10 December 2017 - 15:18:00

    My wife and I were planning a trip to the bay area for our anniversary and decided to invite some friends to join us. Our party ended up being 8 people large, and we wanted something that was nice and affordable that would accomodate all of us. When searching for places to stay, I came across Rahel's beautiful house, and immediately reached out to her to see if it was available. Being the wonderful host she is, she responded within a few hours. Being the person in charge of planning this whole trip, I was in constant contact with Rahel to make sure everything would be smooth sailing once we arrived. Rahel was courteous and accommodating throughout the entire process! Being from Hawai`i, I truly appreciate when others exhibit the "aloha" spirit, and Rahel definitely exuded this throughout. She accommodated us when we arrived late friday evening. The pictures she has up are 100% legit, and the house was just as beautiful in person as it was in the pictures. Rahel even provided us with a stocked fridge of bottled water, and gave us a welcome basket filled with lots of treats! Our vacation was jam packed with things to do, and the house was a very welcome and relaxing place to return to after a long day of activities. The house itself was located in a very nice neighborhood and was close to the BART station so traveling into the city of San Fransisco was a piece of cake. If you have a large group that you are traveling with, and are looking for a relaxing, quiet, and beautiful place to stay, I highly recommend you check out Rahel's place, you will not be disappointed. The next time we are in the Bay area and we need a place for a bunch of people, Rahel and her beautiful house will be the first place I turn to! 16 October 2015 - 03:15:36
