Eden Cottage is our 686 square foot space in west San Jose. It is a custom built (in 2018) 1 Bedroom cottage with a private entrance, fast WiFi, 50 inch flat screen TV, skylights, full kitchen and a bath with a huge shower.

The cottage is entirely separate from our home and has a small yard and patio under a large Oak tree that provides shade to entire area.

The space
Your cottage is behind our home with a fenced, private entrance. Self check-in is available using an electronic combination deadbolt. However we are also happy to greet guests personally.

The unit has it's own full kitchen including a refrigerator, gas range, dishwasher and microwave. Most importantly, we provide a coffee maker and free specialty coffee, freshly roasted on the premises by your hosts!

Great for professionals, couples and small families. Rental includes a Graco portable play yard that includes a bassinet, changing table and play pen accommodating infants to toddlers. A full size sofa bed in the living area is perfect for young children (or adults) and there's a queen bed in the separate bedroom.

The cottage has it's own small yard which has a lawn, brick patio with chairs and an orange tree. Other landscaping is still in progress.

Where you’ll be

San Jose, California, United States

We live in West San Jose, with great proximity to Silicon Valley employers including ebay (2.6 miles), Apple (4.1 miles), Nvidia (4.8 miles), G00gle (14.4 miles) and Faceb00k (19.8 miles).

The Winchester Mystery house and Santana Row are within walking distance at just under a mile. Great Thai and Vietnamese food are right around the corner and beautiful downtown Campbell (2.0 miles) has restaurants of every stripe and numerous watering holes.

We are also close to Levi's Stadium (8.2 miles) and the Shark Tank (SAP Center) (5.0 miles) in downtown San Jose.

Our family loves to travel. While others might save for a car or high-end TV, we save for trips. Top destinations have been Africa, New Zealand, Japan, Australia and several destinations in Europe. We typically prefer independent itineraries that we develop ourselves which focus on learning about the local culture as opposed to the usual high profile tourist stops. However, we have used tour companies when we might be out of our depth. (eg our Africa trip) Closer to home, we love camping, backpacking and paddling. Melinda walked for 3 straight months on the Pacific Crest Trail, covering 1284 miles from Mexico to Northern California. She covered all kinds of terrain from desert to mountain passes over 13,000 feet. Our son recently graduated from UC Davis with a degree in Biomedical Engineering. He is working for the UC Davis Medical Center and is an Eagle Scout. We believe flexibility, resourcefulness, an open mind and a sense of humor will get you through just about any of life's challenges.
