Second stay, the room is in a separate cottage containing a comfortable bed and desk, while the bathroom is in the main house a few steps away. the cat is friendly, and Johann is interesting to talk with. A very good value for the area.
It was a great stay: Clean room separate from the main house well located on a quiet street in Mountain View. Gabriele's husband, Johann, was a pleasant host.
Also there's a *very* friendly cat - so good if you get on well with cats.
Would happily recommend and stay sagain.
Thumbs up! Thanks for having us :-)
Good place to stay few days, Johan was very friendly and all was as they promise.
Definitely it's a good option to stay in Mountain View
Johann was very kind and accommodating. The room is somewhat cold in the night but turning on the portable heater solves this well. If you are cat person you are in for a pleasant surprise :-)
Nice, private space in an excellent location. Gabriele was not there but her husband Johan made sure that I had everything I needed. The room has it's own entrance, a comfortable bed and desk. The bathroom is in the main house. There is a friendly cat and a nice lawn. Great value for the area.
Great location, we could walk to down town Mtn View..
However room, kitchen and overall living spaces were not clean.
The bed is not a real bed, but a futon and was not comfortable. Not sure we saw that in the ad.
Host was quite pleasant, accomodating and eager to help.
We enjoyed staying here very much. Easy access to El Camino Real but very quiet. The room and the shared bathroom were clean. Also, the cat was very friendly. I would come again.
Great hidden find. Loved the privacy of the self-contained room. Johan (Gabriele's husband) was a very nice host. Hope to be back!
Johann was a great host and everything was perfectly suited for what I needed. The room has a bed and desk and has a separate entrance from the main house. The location was great for me, it's about a 20 minute walk from Castro St and 25 from the San Antonio CalTrain station. I am allergic to cats, but the cat didn't bother me.
