The TV has Netflix built in. You can also choose to stream from your laptop using chromecast (already connected to TV)

We live in the Bay Area, in the heart of Silicon Valley. We love living here - great people, culture and an outdoor lover's dream. We love exploring the neighborhood, meeting new people, hiking a different place each time (ask us about our favorites!), windsurfing - the bay area has it all!
We love to get away too. Seattle and Portland are our favorite west coast destinations. We've been to France quite a bit and love the people and the culture there, especially when you get out of the city. We have exchanged homes a couple of times with some lovely people from France, and hope to do it again.
Yoga is our favorite way to balance city life and slow down the pace. The Bay area quite possibly has the best Yoga teachers anywhere, and classes that vary from relaxing to really difficult. Ask us about our favorite Yoga teachers & studios (We have a number a short bike ride away)
Part of our desire to rent our room is to meet new, interesting people. We'd love to have a cup of coffee or (better still!) a glass of wine, and get to know you.
