Private Cottage: Modern + Spa-Like

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Chabrant Way, San Jose, CA 95125, United States

The Space

Welcome! A private cottage in the heart of Silicon Valley awaits your arrival! This clean, adorable and beautifully furnished cottage has a private entrance, a patio area and plenty of open space inside and out. Inside, it's light and bright, complete with sky lights with built-in sunshades that can open or close with a touch of a button. The cottage sleeps 2-4 and is suitable for a professional, couple, or small family. The queen bed is comfortable and almost new. The couch turns into a second - and very comfortable- queen bed. All bedding and towels are brand new (updated since these photos were taken).

The kitchen area offers basic cooking necessities, and the kitchen appliances are in excellent condition, including a full sized refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee machine and BBQ for whatever else you want to cook up! There's also a desk for you to get some work or studying done. The bathroom is clean and spacious, with a full-size bath (soaking tub) and ample counter space and storage.

You’ll love the weather, vibe, and location of this charming community known as Willow Glen. Walk a couple blocks for Pete's Coffee, great pizza (Willow Street Grill), Jamba Juice (smoothies) and more (Thai, Indian, Japanese, Italian, etc). Within about 7 minutes by car, you’ll be in downtown San Jose or at the doorstep of several popular companies (IBM, eBay, PayPal, Adobe and more ). Are you a shopper or foodie? High-end shops (Louis Vuitton, Nordstroms, Lulu Lemon, H&M, etc) and dining (Including steak houses and live music at El Jardin Tequila Bar) can be found at Santana Row / Valley Fair Mall. You can get there by car in 10 minutes or by cab for ~$10. Other nearby facilities are San Jose State (8 minutes by car), the new 49er stadium (10 minutes away) and the San Jose Airport (~$15-25 cab fare or 15 minutes away).

Care to explore other parts of the Bay Area? Don't miss the drive to Santa Cruz (about 35 minutes away)... continue up Hwy 1 to San Francisco for BEAUTIFUL coastal day-trip. You can also drive to San Francisco directly in about 1 hour, or take the CalTrain to downtown San Francisco from downtown San Jose.

Upon arrival, you'll meet Victoria, the home owner (and good friend of mine). We hope you'll relax, unwind, and enjoy the warm weather in this spacious retreat in the heart of the San Francisco Peninsula!

  • It was another wonderful Airbnb stay in this great space! We spent more time than usual indoors because we enjoyed the quarters and the special touches.

  • Had a wonderful stay! Cottage was clean, comfortable, and right in the middle of a great neighborhood. Great restaurants are a short walk away. Enjoyed the fruit, yogurt and coffee in the mornings too. Highly recommend for those looking for a great place in San Jose!

  • My daughter and I had a wonderful time at this beautiful cottage in San Jose. Victoria and Mark were wonderful hosts. When they found out that I was visiting my brand new granddaughter they provided a congratulatory bottle of wine! The cottage is spotless. We loved the free internet, the goodies that Mark and Victoria left for us to eat and the spa like atmosphere. We will definitely look to stay here again during our next visit. The cottage has citrus trees all around it and it is conveniently located within walking distance to a nice downtown area with restaurants, a bank and a Starbucks!

  • Amanada and Victoria were truly fantastic. Everything was entirely as advertised and they have the "BNB" model down to a science. It is also a terrific location with a nice short walk to the restaurants in downtown Willow Glen. Thanks for your terrific hospitality!

  • Wir waren für 14 Tage dort und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Alles war so wie beschrieben. Am Anreisetag waren Lebensmittel für die Erstversorgung vorhanden. Die Wohnung war sauber und es fehlte an nichts, auch nicht an der Kücheneinrichtung. Mark und Victoria waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Es gab nichts, was wir vermisst hätten. Wir würden die Unterkunft jederzeit wieder buchen.

About
I work in tech and am fortunate to have lived in London for 4 years, back when mobile technologies were first taking off. I've traveled extensively, and have grown to appreciate a good host! When I'm not hard at work, (or traveling), I'm usually found engaging in outdoor adventures, such as snow skiing, water skiing, road biking, or spending quality time with friends. I've been a landlord for 8 years, and I am regularly hosting out-of-town guests, especially international visitors. I firmly believe that staying in someone's home in a nice neighborhood beats Starwood or Hilton Hotels ;) Because I enjoyed the Airbnb experience so much, in addition to renting my home in Menlo Park, I'm also managing my good friend Victoria's and her neighbor's guest houses in San Jose and my friend Debbie's house in Tahoe. We all used to work for the same company and have found that by working together, we can provide the best experience for our guests! Same quality, efficiency, communication process, etc. plus we've already learned all of the tips/conveniences and can apply it to multiple properties. We look forward to welcoming you to the Bay Area or Tahoe. All five properties are well-located, quiet, charming and family-friendly with friendly hostesses and a personal touch to make your stay a pleasant one!
