The Northside Tiny House is a brand new tiny house in Japantown/Downtown San Jose. It’s the perfect location in the heart of the Silicon Valley: close to public transportation, and highways. If you’ve ever wanted to try out tiny living or are just looking for a beautiful place to stay at an affordable price, this is the place for you! Unlike some studio apartments, our house has a FULL CHEF'S KITCHEN, 3-piece bathroom and all the amenities you need for a perfect stay. Perfect for 1-2 people.

The space
Have an entire house to yourself for the price of a single room! The Northside Tiny House is a newly built, pinterest-worthy, modern rustic tiny house in the heart of the Silicon Valley in Down Town San Jose (just next to Japantown). The house features everything you’d want in a vacation house, just scaled down to fit into 250 square feet. The perfect location for business or pleasure, the Northside Tiny House is just 10 minutes from the San Jose airport, within minutes of highways 880, 87 and freeways 101 and 280/680, and bikeable to all major public transportations (Bus, Lightrail, Caltrain). Also within walking distance of restaurants, grocery stores, coffee shops and shopping in Japantown, and 2 blocks from a huge park with basketball, playgrounds and walking track, or 7 blocks from a park with tennis courts and handball walls.

Perfect for single person or couple. The sofa bed if available bust best suited for children as it is on the smaller/fuctional side.

House Amenities:
-Fully Equipped Chef’s Kitchen: 4 burner stove + oven, microwave, dishwasher, 3/4 apartment fridge + freezer with all the pots, pans and dishes you need to prepare an awesome dinner. We have all the basics you need for cooking and baking as well.
-Stocked 3 Piece Bathroom: 32” x 32” Shower, sink, toilet (with running water), plus toiletries
-Connected Home: Wifi and 30” Smart TV are available to use
-Dining for 2-3: The coffee table in the living room transforms into a dining table using the sofa as 2 seats and lux folding chairs for the other 2 seats.
-Sleeps 4 total (best suited for 1-2 Adults): There is a lux queen memory foam mattress in the sleeping loft and the sofa converts into a little wider and little shorter than a twin bed. The sofa bed is functional, not the comfiest, best suited for children.
-Light, Airy & Spacious Feeling: The house is 8.5 X 22 feet with a 8’ X 9’ sleeper loft. 10 windows including 2 skylights paired with a totally open concept make for great natural light and leave the space feeling much larger than it is. The rustic modern design aesthetic paired with lux finishes make for a great stay.

---Filtered drinking water
