Judy made us feel welcome from the very first email response which she sent very promptly by accepting our request and answering my first questions. She continued this welcome by providing precise yet full details on our respective responsibilities as host and guests. She completed this welcome by introducing us, on our arrival, to the workings of the apartment, which was indeed a 'luxurious' apartment and exceeded our expectations grounded on our fairly extensive prior Airbnb experiences.
This was one of the most wonderful stays I have had in the Bay Area. Judith was just wonderful, and the apartment is exceedingly well equipped, and very quiet. When I arrived, Judith had already stocked food in the fridge, something I really didn't expect. One evening, when I came home, I found a really touching note and home made brownies in front of my door. How nice is that? It was a fantastic experience, and one I would love to repeat next time I am in the area.
We were welcomed by a gracious host. Our month on Judy street was very comfortable. The apt. Is very clean & well furnished. Good location. We were very pleased wth the place & the hospitality.
Ilene & Ron
Judith is such a nice host and her room is so beautiful and my parents just love it!
One of the best home away from home we stayed as Airbnbers. Judith's warmth & thoughtfulness marked almost everywhere we touched in her well organized, clean & neat apartment. Judith, we also like to thank you again for the eggs from the family hen, & artichoke from your garden.
Judith's place was exactly what I needed. She was extremely generous and made sure I had everything I needed for the stay - breakfast, laundry, etc. The apt is very well kept and cozy. Would certainly stay again on a future trip.
About the Host, Judith
My husband and I have lived in Cupertino for over 20 years. We are glad to call Cupertino our home as we enjoy the mild year around climate and the cultural diversity of the area. With the mild weather, we look forward to having fruits and vegetables grown on the property year around.
In 2009, we purchased this home to allow a parent to live with us when the time is right. Until then we have a fully furnished private apartment (attached to the main house, but fully separate). The apartment can be used by someone while traveling or working in the Bay Area. We have enjoyed staying in high end hotels and tried to create an ideal space that we personally would enjoy staying at while traveling.
One of our life goals is to travel the world. We still have many many places to see! In the meantime, we enjoy reading and hearing about places that we should visit! The San Francisco Bay area has so many fun things to do that I sometimes think there just aren't enough hours in a day :)
Wishing you a safe travels and memorable experiences. As we want your stay to be enjoyable, please feel free to ask me any questions regarding the apartment.
