You are visiting the Valley and want something more comfortable and personal than a hotel room? My apartment is cozy, quiet and full of light with a south-west balcony towards the pool and BBQ area. Very high wooden ceilings make this place spacious and comfort was my motto when I furnished it.
Parking is available on the street and the Caltrain station is one mile away. By car you can reach (website hidden) in 8 min, Apple in 10 min, Microsoft in 8 min, downtown Mountain View in 6min, different supermarkets in 3min, Stanford university in 20min. With Wifi, Bose Bluetooth Speaker and Nespresso machine you can get your days started the right way before exploring the area. Washer and dryer are available within the complex.and are paid with coins. A bicycle can be borrowed upon request.
Second stay was good. Carla was on top of a few issues that arose which was great. Thanks Carla.
My second stay at Carla's apartment was every bit as perfect as my first. Everything is always so clean and uncluttered and inviting when you arrive, and for anyone who likes to work as much as they like to sleep...it is unbeatable.
The kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly think of, and the whole complex is meticulously well landscaped and maintained, so that arriving home is always a pleasure no matter which entrance you choose to use.
Myself, I combine staying at Carla's place with frequent use of Uber...that way I can get to anywhere in the Valley without the slightest problem. It is equally well situated for Mountain View, Palo Alto or San Jose. And for runners it is just a hop and skip away from the Steven's Creek Trail, which in turn leads to the Bay Trail if you enjoy a longer run.
My mother and I fell in LOVE with this apartment. I wanted to book it again for the next time she came, but it was already booked. Get it now if it's available!
Carla is an amazing host. So accommodating and sweet. The place is immaculately clean like a nice hotel while being cozy and relaxing like a home sweet home. Great bathroom (bathtub and separate shower) and great kitchen.
I am sorry to have to say it, because you are not going to believe me...but I simply fell in love with this apartment the moment I walked in through the door, and I remain in love still, three weeks after leaving it.
The swimming pool looks inviting 24x7, the property is immaculately maintained, the central air is easy to regulate, the water is always piping hot, and the power-shower is to die for.
I am totally smitten. I will be returning, indeed I cannot imagine being in Silicon Valley for any period of time without being in this wonderful space. I was able to work and rest and feel "at home" in a way that no hotel room could even begin to get close to - and I have stayed in some pretty fancy hotel rooms over the years, including ones with boardrooms and multiple bathrooms!
In summary then: very highly recommended, as is the host, who settled me in, in person, when I first arrived, and from whom I received full instructions on how to operate everything right from the get-go.
This is the second time I've stayed at Carla's place and everything was great. The place is neat and homey with all the amenities for an enjoyable stay.
What a great hostess and a lovely apartment! From the welcome fruit, use of her brilliant bike to the excellent Nespresso coffee on offer; Carla really goes out of her way to make you feel welcome and the stay a pleasure. Nothing seemed too much effort, even getting up early to book me in for a session at her local gym. The apartment was immaculate, quiet and lovely to stay in. In easy reach (by bike!) of the amenity of Mountain View and the (website hidden) campus. I hope to come back soon!
Beautiful apartment, very nice to look out the window and see the pool. Never heard any noise from other apartments. Convenient location to downtown Mountain View. Easy key pickup. C. was available to answer questions whenever we had them.
The place was great, clean, quiet, and in a good neighborhood. Everything was set up ahead of time and the host was very responsive. Would definitely stay again.
Clean and orderly, everything we needed, easy parking, quiet safe neighborhood.
C is a terrific host and her place is wonderful. She has been incredibly flexible and accommodating and very welcoming. Her place very clean, comfortable, up to date, and with the high ceilings and modern furnishings, it has a great feel. You'll love it!
