A cozy 1920's era home on a quiet street 2 blocks from Santa Clara Ave(the main street). We are 4 short blocks from the university in the heart of downtown! Spend time exploring the city, or learn how to make homemade beer and sausage and roast coffee at our house!
Guests will have access to the whole house except for our bedroom and our bar.
Interaction with Guests
We are very social, so there's no need to tip toe around the house or worry about disturbing us! On weeknights we go to bed around 9:30. Weekends are whenever.
Convenient bus stop 2 blocks away that goes through downtown and stops at light rail and main downtown station Diridon where you can catch Caltrain to SF, 17 bus to Santa Cruz and pretty much anywhere else you might want to go in between.
I couldn't imagine a better experience than what we had with Cory & Lisa. My boyfriend and I drove overnight from Oklahoma with our large breed dog and Cory welcomed us with patience, kindness, a delightful home, and cold brew. Lisa baked pastries nearly every morning for us, and Cory brewed fresh-roasted coffee. They were absolutely welcoming to our big girl and considered her a guest, as well. Aside from the exceptional hosting, Cory & Lisa provided us with friendship and an exceptionally comfortable good time with great food, beer, coffee, and stories. Not to mention their sweet babies Wally and Mr. Bandit. (I'll miss that long-legged prancer!)
It was an absolutely refreshing experience to find such genuine people to spend time with. Now, if we could find a way to spend more time in beautiful San Jose!
Cory and Lisa's home was perfect- very clean and cute and within walking distance to pretty much everything we needed. The room was clean and had its own bathroom. Cory was quick to give us suggestions on where to eat and what to do. Loved our stay!
Cory and Lisa are lovely people and extremely accommodating. The room itself is very comfortable with a lovely bathroom. When I needed help with something Cory was a brilliant local advisor. When I came home late I hung out in front of the TV with Lisa, chatting about American stuff (I am Aussie). I got along with both of them very well and I highly recommend staying there.
Cory and Lisa were awesome hosts! I would definitely recommend staying with them. I loved the cute San Jose neighborhood and their friendliness. If I'm ever back, I'll be calling them!
A great spot to stay in San Jose! Cory and Lisa were great with communication and Connor enjoyed his stay. I definitely recommend, especially if you need access to SJSU.
I had a warm reception with Cory and Lisa when I arrived. I stayed nearly a week here and my schedule kept me leaving early and out late so I didn't see much of them most of the week, but when I did they were very fun to talk with. The location is great and very safe walking to in the night and from in the early morning. The back door as they say is unlocked all the time, but I never felt unsafe. Their renter in the garage behind is awesome as well. The room is perfect and the bathroom surpasses some hotels. The bed is soft and comfy and their dogs are quiet and very friendly, but won't bother you. I highly recommend this AirBnb location.
Cory was a great host! He was friendly and informative about the area. The place was perfect for me to get away for a two day certification and get some studying done in the evening. I definitely recommend!
Cory is a wine and spirits salesman, and Lisa is an art teacher. Our house is always well stocked with whatever you need to loosen up! In our spare time we brew beer, roast our own coffee, and make homemade sausage. If beer is your drink of choice, we have two selections on tap in the garage for you to enjoy!
We also love cooking. If whatever we decide to have for dinner suits your fancy, you are welcome to join us! Good food always tastes better with good company.
