I with our my daughter in the adjacent main Victorian house. I work for a technology company. We are a busy family, but are here to help you with anything you may need during your stay. We just started with Airbnb and look forward to our guests' input in order to improve our service and amenities. Our goal is to make you feel at home and experience a very pleasant stay.
Right downtown, on a tree lined street populated with beautiful Victorians, and in front of the quaint O'Donnell's Gardens, a small manicure public park.
La Casita is right downtown, 5 to 10 minutes walking distance to SJ Convention Center, SJSU, shopping, restaurants, The Tech Museum and SJ MOMA, the California Theater home of Opera San Jose, art galleries of South First Street with its South First Fridays events, movie theaters, and the light rail system which takes you to different surrounding areas. It is just 5 min drive from Santana Row, Westfield Mall, SJ Airport, and Caltrain station to Palo Alto (27 minutes one stop to University Ave).

I've stayed in this apartment for 6 nights because of the conference in San Jose. The main house looks like it is from a fairy tale, but you enter through a "secret" garden (which is just amazing) to a very cosy cottage, which is autonomous, clean and nicely furbished. It has a very high ceiling, light and very spacious. The kitchen and bathroom had necessary equipment, and air conditioning was really useful, too! Jose-Maria was quick in communication, and even helped me, driving me with my luggage to the place where I had to take an airport shuttle with my colleagues. I really enjoyed my stay, and highly recommend this place. Thank you, Jose-Maria!
The description was very accurate, it was a great space. She had the extra bed for my son ready and extra towels as well. Very clean, including the bathroom and kitchenette. The host was very prompt in texting replies to my questions.
The neighborhood was extremely convenient and quiet. Great restaurants in easy walking distance.
Great location and very accessible. Just as presented. The host was very interested in making sure my needs were met. Thanks for everything.
This place was great. It was easy to find and easy to access. Everything seemed fairly clean and well kept. The host was available and helpful. It was less than 3/4 walk to the San Jose conference center. I would stay there again.
It was very nice and clean, just like the photos. The hosts were open for communication all the time.
Thanks Jose-Maria, you have been a very welcoming host. Your location is very nice and convenient. I came on a business trip to get an experience different from hotel and I was pleased with my choice. "La Casita" is a very decent place to stay at. With a few touch ups it will become a 4 stars experience!
