  • Staying with Veronica is a breathe of fresh air in an otherwise disingenuous and corporate world of the "hospitality business". She takes great honor in making her guest feel welcomed and comfortable. As soon as you walk in the door she is already making you something to eat if you request. She loves to get to know you and will get very personal with you if you're comfortable with it. I would suggest that if you are a warm personable person, looking for someone to have deep meaningful conversations during your stay, you have found the right place. "V" really helped me to keep things in perspective and reminded me to live the life I should be living during some bad news I got while staying with her. I thank her from the bottom of my heart and I know I'm not alone from other stories of gratitude of her past guest. You feel instantaneously like family along side her son Carlos who enjoys your company as well. She truly enjoys giving and making you feel welcome even to go as far as offering her car which I declined of course. It just shows you though how much of great person she is and the lengths to which she will go to help you out. I feel as if I made a friend for life which I was not expecting but gave me a warm feeling when I said goodbye because I know it would not be for long. Don't take her giving spirit as a sign of weakness though because she is one smart cookie and won't allow anyone to take advantage of her she is woman of full integrity. There is one thing she has a passion for above anything else though is her deep love of "cumbia" music. "V" has a deep appreciation of this music so much so that she claims to play it out of an ivory tower in San Jose (JUST KIDDING she hates this music with a passion but we had some good laughs about it during my stay.) You should honestly consider yourself honored if she chooses you stay with her because she is a rare breed in an often impersonable world.

  • Veronica was an excellent host - very accommodating of our busy time table and extremely welcoming. If this is your first time visiting San Jose or Silicon Valley then Veronica's local knowledge will be very helpful. The room is very nice, with plenty of space to unpack should you need to and the bed is very comfortable.

    Thank you for a lovely stay Veronica

    Dear Simon,
    It was a real pleasure having you and your lovely friend stay with us and I also appreciate your kind words. In all my time hosting, I haven't come across such polite and kind people like you two. I wish you tons of success in your careers and in your upcoming grand event in Portugal. Please know that if you ever need a place to stay in San Jose, you are welcome to return anytime.
    All the best,
    Veronica :)

  • Enjoyed my second stay with Veronica. As before, Vernonica offered a "home away from home", including good conversation and an eagerness to be helpful. I look forward to visiting again.

    It was great having you visiting my humble place again. I hope this is not the last either. Please receive warm regards from Carlitos and I and know you are very welcome to return anytime you wish to visit San Jose.

  • Veronica is a very helpful and kind host. She picked me up from a drop off point on the day I arrived and had a very cozy room setup for me. The room is quite good and has a bathroom conveniently located. Overall I would say I had a very comfortable experience during my stay with Veronica and had a good time talking about the history of computer games with her son Carlos :)

    Dear Akshay
    So kind of you to take the time to do a review. It was a pleasure having you stay with us and I am very happy that you enjoyed your visit and was open to try Airbnb. I hope you continue to enjoy visiting many other hosts and places at Airbnb and know you are always welcome to return to visit as our guest it would certainly be nice to stay in touch. My son and I wish you tons of success. All the best, V :)

  • I stayed with Veronica for three nights while attending a conference at the Hilton Doubletree, near the airport. It was a convenient location, ten minutes' walk from the light rail stop at Japantown/Ayer. From there it is a few stops to San Jose Caltrain station in one direction and the Airport stop in the other.

    Veronica was a very warm and welcoming host. As mentioned in her description, the house is small and humble, but it had everything I needed. She even went and bought a hairdryer for me to use during my stay which was much appreciated.

    I had to wait until 7pm on my first night to check in as Veronica got stuck in traffic on her way home from work, but she kept me updated on her progress so it wasn't a big deal. Once I'd checked in, she gave me a key so I could come and go as needed.

    There are some good, inexpensive restaurants on Jackson, ten minutes' walk from Veronica's, which are worth investigating for your evening meal.

    Dear Rachel,
    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review and it certainly was my pleasure to have you stay with us. It is easy to enjoy such pleasant guests like yourself, so considerate and quiet. I hope that this is not the last time we hear from you and I wish you tons of success in all you do; know that if you are ever in need for a place to stay in San Jose, you are more than welcome to return.
    With warm regards,
    Veronica :)

  • Veronica is a wonderful host! She was incredibly welcoming and I felt right at home. True to what I expected after reading other reviews, we had an engaging chat the first night I was there. The room is very cozy and equipped with all the amenities - space heater, tv, and extra blankets and towels. I was traveling on business, so I appreciated the iron and ironing board in the room! The house is very easy to find and is about a 20 minute walk from downtown San Jose. I hope to have the opportunity to stay with Veronica again and I highly recommend her to others. (One word of advice - if you're taking a taxi to/from Veronica's, make sure to be explicit about N/S in the address!)

  • Veronica is very nice, friendly and welcoming person as well as her son. I had very pleasant stay at her house. They were very open to talk but also left me keep to myself when I wanted. We shared the bathroom and V she was considerate with my schedule and we had no problem with that. She generously prepared original Mexican lunch for me, which I enjoyed very much. And we had many great and funny evenings over a beer or wine, sharing stories. If you want to have nice stay and someone with whom to share stories and chuckle - V is your host :)

  • Veronica's home is as described, nice and cosy in an ideal location close to downtown San Jose. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Veronica's place. I have not come across a more hospitable and gracious host. She welcomed us with tea and felt at home right away. She was respectful in giving us our privacy but at the same time sociable and is always available to provide any information we needed. The room is clean and has all the advertised amenities and more. The memory foam mattress was great, and it helped us fight the jet lag soon. I would highly recommend Veronica's place if you like to feel at home in San Jose.

  • If you would like to stay at the house of a person with a big heart, Veronica is your host! She was extremely welcoming and helpful, and has a great personality. She offered me some wine as soon as I stepped in. Then, we had a great chat with her. The location couldn't be more perfect, very close to the convention centers and the airport. Overall, this was a great experience. I would definitely stay with Veronica again.

  • Staying at veronica's was like staying at a friends. She was available to help me with whatever I needed. Affordable, convenient, safe. Within walking distance of light rail. No frills, just quiet, warm, and comfortable.

About
My name is Veronica and the little one I am holding in my picture is my adorable son. Together we enjoy welcoming our friends, family and guests from all over the world. He is a bright, polite, warm, reserved, kind, playful and welcoming boy who enjoys our visitors and happily gives up his bedroom in order to sleep with me. I am his mom. I am a friendly, career woman; I am known for my welcoming warm spirit and gregarious personality. I am eloquent, kind, friendly and enjoy learning about various cultures through documentaries, traveling and the arts in general, I aim to create a friendly, restful, peaceful and fun atmosphere at home for anybody who comes to visit us. In the past, I often traveled around the world for work and pleasure, and those experiences provided me with the ability to easily relate to other cultures and to the mentality of my guests who are seeking for an affordable, comfortable, safe, clean and warm atmosphere during their stay. During my trips, I met people who kindly welcome me as a guest and their welcoming spirit transformed every trip I had into a journey of enriching experiences! Now, this is my opportunity to pay it forward welcoming those visiting California's Silicon Valley and attempt to transform their trip from a good one into an extraordinary journey!
