Q: How many people can the studio sleep?
A: The studio is perfect for 1 person, but can accommodate 2 people if they're a couple. It's less ideal for roommates given the layout of the room. There's a full size bed (real bed, mattress +box spring) as well as a pull-out sofa bed.
Q: Is there wi-fi?
A: Yep. There's dedicated high-speed wireless internet in the cottage.
Q: Are there shared walls/a shared entrance?
A: Nope. The studio sits behind my house but is it's own structure. Separate entrance (via driveway/backyard) and no shared walls. It's totally private!
Please make yourself at home by helping yourself to anything in the cottage (it's stocked for your arrival). Feel free to enjoy the outside patio/garden or cook a meal on the bbq.
No smoking please! I hope you'll feel right at home in the studio and treat it as though it were. Finally, though I'm close to downtown, this is a residential neighborhood so please respect my awesome neighbors (ie- If you're looking for a raging party, head downtown and not into the backyard. I can even recommend some great bars!)
Erin's studio made a long term stay away from home much more bearable. It's comfortable, private and in a perfect location. Walking distance to MANY great restaurants and bars along Castro.
Erin is a great host. Her studio is in a great location close to dining and entertainment. Comfortable bed and all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. I highly recommend.
Absolutely one of the best AirBnB experience ever. The studio was immaculate with everything I needed. Private entrance in a quiet neighborhood that is walking distance to many restaurants and bars on Castro street in the heart of Mt. View. Erin is a great host and always helpful when asked.
This studio was quiet, very clean and comfortable. If you have business in downtown Mountain View, you couldn't ask for a better location (few short blocks to Castro Street). Erin was an extremely gracious host. Very attentive and available while respecting privacy. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you Erin!!!
Staying at Erin's amazing cottage is always a delight. Super clean and really charming, the cottage has everything you need for a week or more in Mountain View
Das Cottage von Erin ist traumhaft und enspricht genau der Beschreibung und den Bildern. Erin ist ein großartiger Gastgeber - professionell, hilfsbereit, absolut zuverlässig und fürsorglich. Ich habe mich immer wohl gefühlt und kann diese Unterkunft nur empfehlen!
About the Host, Erin
I think meeting new people is the best part of traveling and hotels can sometimes be isolating. I grew up in Mountain View so I know the area like the back of my hand. Looking for a great restaurant, place to explore, or may be your next apartment or home? Let me know I'm happy to help with recommendations or neighborhood insights.
Some of the best burgers I've ever had made from grass-fed beef and an incredible selection of beer. You can't beat the outside patio for people watching.
The bar is small but mighty. Thy specialize in American small batch liquor and beers. The specialty mixed drinks can't be beat.
Delicious sushi just three blocks away
