Lovely and elegant home and host. Very comfortable and peaceful suite in a well-located (easy walking distance to downtown, train, walking trails), pretty setting. Though I seldom saw her, given both our schedules, VJ was friendly, welcoming, and helpful. Highly recommend.
Vj was such a gracious host, and her place was just perfect for what I needed. I stayed for three weeks, and her home was very comfortable. She is a sweet and generous lady and we had some wonderful conversations about love, life, and some great local restaurants. I would definitely stay with Vj again.
The apartment is elegant, very clean, and cozy, and extremely well located - very close walking to Castro Street and to the Caltrain. The room is quiet and the bed big and comfortable. I felt immediately at home. There is a pool, but I did not have time to use it, nor the small balcony that faces the pool area. Vj is a busy professional that gives you space, but also can make you feel at home with her good manners and friendliness. I met and had dessert with her and her sister (and her husband) one night they were visiting and had a super interesting conversation.
VJ made me feel very welcome upon my arrival. I had everything I needed including a very comfortable room and bed. The location was perfect for my trip. Walking to downtown Mountain View was a treat each night to work off my business meeting lethargy. An excellent place to stay.
The apartment was extremely beautiful and clean. I was there about a month and VJ was the best host. When I got there, she had water ready for me in my room. She also got me a flower for my room for Valentine's Day! She also helped me pack up my room and get my luggage out to my car at 4 am. She was so sweet, and often offered to make me coffee in the morning. I have spent time in many AirBNBs and VJ was by far the best hostess.
This was my first time doing Airbnb and it was a great experience. VJ answered all of my questions and was very helpful leading up to the trip and made me feel very welcome during my stay. Her place was very clean and was in a good location.
We also talked about the area in general and had a great conversation. I would definitely stay with VJ again and highly recommend staying at her place.
Vj was a fantastic host. Very kind and completely accommodating! The room was nicer than any hotel room I've stayed in, and the location is perfect. If you're in the area, Vj's place should be at the top of your list. Not to mention Vj has great restaurant recommendations!
