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!
The walkability score of our neighborhood is very good since is a 10 minute walk from public transport and many stores/restaurants.
Sorry, no pets/smoking/drugs. Please also take your shoes off when you first come in the home since we have white carpets in the bedroom and travertine floors downstairs which can easily stain. Please also turn on the fan when using the shower so mold doesn't build up and make sure the water doesn't get behind the shower curtain.
We take really good care of our home so we ask that you leave it in the same condition it was before and you be respectful :)
Kinh was incredibly kind and helpful to me during my visit, getting me me to a grocery store the first day and providing lots of helpful information about the area and getting around. Even without a car, using Uber, Lyft and the bus was easy to get where I needed to. The bed was wonderfully comfortable and the bathroom spotless. I hardly spent any time at the house because of my commitments to the conference I was attending, but wish I'd had more time to visit with the host.
Kinh is a great host! I was well taken care of, felt at home, and had a very great overall experience. I stayed 11 nights- and it was great to have a house rather than hotel. If I'm back in sj I'll definitely rebook. Thank you!
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)
Perfect for a short stay! Has a private bathroom with a nice master bedroom. The room is also very quiet and tranquil. Highly recommended.
Kinh is a great landlord. I had a great stay at her really nice house with her kind roommates. I definitely recommend staying there!

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, 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!
