About Tracy Zhu

I am originally from China but have been a Bay area resident for more than a decade now. I love food and travel, and I enjoy tea much more than coffee. My husband and I have two kids - a boy and a girl. I am a stay home mom but with a busy schedule - sending kids to all kinds of after-school activities. I hope Airbnb will be a fun way to meet with people around the world!

Tracy Zhu purchased this house in 2015

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house with a group of friends and really enjoyed our stay. Tracy was great and very accommodating. The house is located conveniently to many of the sites we visited and had plenty of space for all of us. We especially appreciated the cleaniness and updated features of the home. We will definitely will be back!
