The Space

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 3 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 only 15 minutes away and the easiest to come and go.

Guest Access

Private room, private bathroom, shared office with printer for boarding pass, cable TV, shared use of outdoor patio and living room.

Interaction with Guests

It depends on guests' interest, length of stay and schedule. We are busy people who respect others time but are friendly to connect in our home over light conversation and to make all feel comfortable and at home.

The Neighborhood

There is a bike path to Mountain View, downtown, South SF bay shoreline and many tech companies, including (website hidden)'s Quad campus a block away. There is a good burrito spot and small shopping
area 3 blocks away and one mile from downtown. We are in a fine neighborhood of homes, condos, apartments, people, children and animals.

Getting around

There is a light rail a half mile away and the Cal Train a mile away. We are available for easy and local transport if we are around, especially to or from San Jose airport, a 15 minute drive.

Other Things to Note

We are close to San Jose airport if your travels can fly you there rather than SFO.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Laura and Lisa are great hosts, very warm and welcoming, and easy-going, and the home is nicely appointed, interesting art on the walls, and other tasteful decor. The room is comfy, with a very comfortable queen-size four-poster and period pieces. Being a few blocks from Moffett field, I was concerned about noise at night, and found it to be very quite all night. Their 3 dogs and 2 kitties are sweet and add to place's. The backyard has great flowers, veges, a barbeque, and a fountain. I highly recommend this spot, and look forward to my next stay.

  • Full points; five stars. Lisa and Laura have a wonderful home and shared it graciously. The room was comfortable and quiet, the location convenient, the wifi reliable, everything neat and tidy and well-appointed. I would stay with them again without hesitation.

  • Staying with Lisa and Laura was an amazing experience! I was in San Jose last week for a training for my new job and was looking for an affordable place to stay. I had never used airbnb before and was unsure about it. Lisa and Laura accommodated me even though my request was last minute and my account was not yet fully set up. I felt welcome immediately: during my first evening, they invited me to a delicious home-cooked dinner with friends. Coffee and breakfast treats were available every morning. My flight was not leaving until later in the evening on my last day and they let me stay longer and I thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful, beautiful garden. The room was lovely, the bed extremely comfortable (I was knocked out immediately every night), and their pets were adorable! I will definitely return and recommend this stay to anyone traveling to Silicon Valley. Lisa and Laura are wonderful hosts and made me feel right at home in a brand new city.

  • Lisa and Laura have been very good to me. They have a lovely house with a quiet patio. They were truly welcoming to me, even leaving some pasta for me to have for dinner when I arrived late. The docs are sweet and fun. For those who are concerned the dogs can't get I to the guest bed or bathroom. We had nice chats, L&L are extremely well travelled so there is lots to talk about. Overall a very pleasant stay!

  • Lisa and Laura were great hosts! Beautiful home in an excellent location in the heart of Silicon Valley. The bedroom was very cozy and the bed super comfortable. I wish I could have stayed longer.

  • I had 2 weeks of lovely stay with Lisa and Lara. They were amazing hosts
    and made sure I was comfortable at all times (Lisa even picked me from the
    airport since she was around). The room was really cozy and clean and I had
    a bathroom to myself. I was free to use the kitchen and the fridge;
    overall, I felt at ease in the space . We enjoyed some great conversations
    and the dogs and cats were super friendly. I’d definitely stay again if I
    have the chance :)

  • Lisa & Laura were delightful hosts. They made sure I was fed and comfortable. We had great conversations and realized we had mutual friends. The room was well appointed, the bed very comfortable and the private bathroom was great. The dogs are very friendly; they made great quiet company when I wanted to relax.

  • I had a lovely time staying with Lisa and Laura! Their house is cozy, clean and very inviting. Not to mention their wonderfully cute dogs! I needed a place to stay the night before a full day of interviews and this was the perfect choice. I was comfortable, I got a great sleep and had all the space and privacy I needed. I felt like I was staying with friends, what more could you ask for?

  • My partner and I really enjoyed staying with Lisa and Laura. The accommodations were exactly as specified. Having several dogs ourselves it was nice to have pups around :)

    The Tempurpedic bed was a lovely bonus and just as comfy as our Tempurpedic at home. The private bathroom was right next door to the bedroom and was cute and clean. The back yard was beautiful and relaxing.

    We will definitely be back if your future travels bring us to Mountain View!
