Frank is good for a quick reply through the AirBNB app and a friendly conversation in person. The house has a gorgeous view of the bay and is located close to 280 via a 5 minute drive.

It is a great place with very nice views for Silicon Valley. Franklin is a great host, house is clean. It’s a nice area, you’ll definitely need a car to move around. Communication with Franklin was super smooth and he was so responsive.
