Spacious master suite in custom-built, luxury house that is a 2 minute walk to the bus, 15 minute walk to Caltrain, lightrail, grocery stores, and restaurants. We are world travelers and rent our spare bedrooms on Airbnb to other professionals.

The Space

We have a custom-built, internationally-inspired 2300 square foot 4 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom house in the Rose Garden neighborhood, just 1 block from the 22/522 Bus and 1.5 miles from Downtown San Jose and Santa Clara CalTrain Stations. We are a couple who has lived abroad and traveled extensivel and are opening our home to fellow travelers.

The bedroom for rent is a bedroom with its own bathroom, 42" LCD TV, and DirectTV in the bedroom. The bathroom has its own shower and bathtub.

If you're feeling friendly, you're welcome to hang out in one of the two living rooms or use our gourmet kitchen. There's a cozy backyard garden with a sun umbrella, lounge chairs, fruit trees, and roses. The front porch has teakwood furniture and is the perfect place to cuddle up with a book or chillax for a bit.

Guests will have access to the free washer and dryer in our house as well as the kitchen. We also have room in our garage if you are bringing your car.

Interaction with Guests

We are happy to hang out with you a bit if you'd like to socialize, or we can leave you alone if you prefer solitude.

The neighborhood is an up-and-coming mix of Spanish style villas, apartments, older homes, and new construction near the Alameda (a main street in San Jose). It is walking distance to Caltrain, busses, downtown San Jose, and Santa Clara. There's convenient access to highways (phone number hidden) and 87 as well!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • I was staying here while I looked for an apartment due to a job change, and the place was great. Close to downtown, Target, and Trader Joe's. I would stay here if I did it all over again. Great Place, Great People, and Great Safe Location.

  • I was in San Jose in March for 10 days. I'm very happy with my experience, Kinh's house is awesome and she and her husband are amazing guests. My plane was late and I arrived to a different airport and she helped me find my way.
    The room I stayed is very big and has a private bathroom, very nice furniture and a huge TV.
    The area where they live is very quiet and supermarkets, coffee places and everything one may need is close.
    I would definitely stay there again.

  • I was here for one week on business. While I didn't meet Kinh she was always available via e-mail. The place was great to stay and her housemates made me feel really welcome! Large room with private bathroom and location was excellent for me getting to work. I will definitely be staying again when I'm back - highly recommended! (John)

  • Kinh is a great landlord. I had a great stay at her really nice house with her kind roommates. I definitely recommend staying there!

  • 657 Helweh is a beautiful home! The roommates are really nice and welcoming. It was nice to have such nice guys living there during my stay. Kinh is very responsive and attentive. Overall, it was a great experience.

    May 2013
  • Even though I did not get to meet Kinh because she was traveling herself when I stayed at her place, my impressions of Kinh are very positive.

    She was frequently in touch through email to make sure that my stay at her home was comfortable. Kinh had attended to every little detail prior to my arrival. Therefore I had a very comfortable stay.

    Her roommates Ameya, Preston and Mustafa are great. Very friendly and welcoming. We had a great time watching the super bowl together!

I am a counter-cultural yuppie that works as an International Recruiter by day and Roller Disco Queen by night (so what if the latter is mostly in my dreams). I love learning about other cultures so in my spare time I take travel photography, Arabic, and international dance class lessons. My host style is really hands-off, you'll have use of a Master Suite so you can retreat to your own den or if you want suggestions for something, I'm happy to help. My fav destinations are Istanbul, Cannes, Minneapolis, and my garden!
