Hello from Lisa and Laura, We are new to Airbnb as of Nov. 13, 2013 but have been hosts to many friends and travelers for a long time. So, welcome to Mountain View, whether you are visiting (website hidden) or other nearby tech companies (one block to a few miles away), the San Francisco Peninsula or Santa Cruz mountains and beach. We are less than a mile from the Light Rail and less than two miles to CalTrain. Downtown Mountain View with its wonderful restaurants, bars and shopping opportunities, is an easy two miles away. The Stevens Creek bike path, public tennis courts and a local park are one block away. Our home is 3 bedroom, 2 bath including a gas fireplace, large outdoor deck and yard with gardens.
We are a 50 something lesbian couple, sharing our home with 4 dogs (2 of them small) and 2 cats so obviously, you must love animals and not be allergic, although we keep the home very clean. You would have your own second floor guest room and bathroom with no one else on the floor. There is an office and TV room adjacent that you are welcome to use. The master suite is on the third floor and the the living room and kitchen and outdoor space is on the main floor. You have full access to the lovely outside deck and the sounds of a large fountain.
We are happy and healthy people who don't do drugs or drink much. The house is drug and smoke free, including outdoor areas, but feel free to have your own cocktails. We will provide breakfast of light pastries and fruit at a minimum and often bake homemade goods and eggs. We hope to say hello in the home and be great hosts but offer you privacy as you need. We are in a residential neighborhood, near parks and bike paths.
Second floor private bedroom and bathroom; second floor TV room and desk (room shared with cats who are often there on their cat climber); Kitchen and Dining room shared with Laura and Lisa; Outdoor patio and deck.
Lisa and Laura are friendly and social but Laura is working full time job. Lisa likes to help guests make sure they know their way around the home, the town and the area. We like to respect the guests' need for space and privacy but are open to nice connection and talking time.
Bike trail to SF Bay and surrounding area starts at the driveway; Redwood trees surround the property; Close to high tech industry standard companies.
Walking and bike trails surround; Bus route at end of block; Light rail around San Jose and Silicon Valley a mile away; Cal-Train to SF 2 miles away.
We try to be helpful hosts. Please ask if you need a ride or help with something and we can see if we can do it. Flying into San Jose airport is easiest!
My second stay was also enjoyable. Now it's off to explore other Bay Area neighborhoods.
Wonderful hosts and great location. The bed was soooooo comfortable! The furry friends were very entertaining.
Would I recommend this place? Yes, I am returning on Monday for a 2nd visit.
It was outstanding experience of hospitality. I love this house and hosts. They made me feel at home and really cared to make my experience the best possible.
At the very first day I left my backpak with huge part of my life in Caltrain. They was as rescue party and done everything to bring it back. It was a miracle, something you can expect only from the very best friends. Lisa and Laura, thank you so much!
I can only recomend this hosts and I wish to visit them again.
Host sat in my lap, flirted with me then sniffed my shirt (I'm talking about the nice little pug dog who seemed to find me very interesting).
The human hosts were just as nice! Didn't get to visit much since i was on a quick one night visit to town but both Lisa and Laura were very welcoming and friendly.
Property as described -- good quiet location and clean. They even had two kinds of pillows (I like the firm ones) and private bathroom seemed new.
Was able to walk to downtown Mtn View for dinner - just over a mile and sidewalks the whole way.
Cats didn't pay much attention to me (normal cats) and the dogs friendly but well behaved - no night time barking etc.
All in all a good AirBnb experience.
It was a real pleasure to have found my way to Lisa and Laura's home. Their dogs were really sweet, the room was welcoming, the bed was very comfortable and I had my own bathroom with a nice warm shower. I rested well for the time I was there and it felt like a quiet respite for a quick rest each night. Lisa was also really kind and took me on a small trip to acquaint me with the neighboring streets and pointed out directions to the venue I needed to be at. Really glad I chose to stay with them. You would be too.
Lisa & Laura have a lovely, warm home, and are equally wonderful hosts! The room is spacious and with its own private bathroom. I appreciated all of the organic bath products and the delicious breakfast treats on offer. Definitely recommend!
A great location - Lisa and Laura are fantastic hosts! Dogs and cats are friendly, private bedroom and bathroom comfy and well appointed. I will definitely keep this place on my short list! Highly recommend.
