We are a young professional couple living in the heart of Silicon Valley. We are located two miles from (website hidden) and nine miles from Stanford. We have a very comfortable, modern room for rent in our spacious condo. We are five minutes walk to the San Antonio Caltrain Station (8 mins to Palo Alto, 4 mins to Mountain View, 45-60 mins to San Francisco) and the San Antonio Shopping Center where Trader Joe's, Wholefoods, Walmart, Target, Safeway, 24 hour fitness are all within 10 minutes walk, as are some great restaurants. Our complex is quiet and secluded. There is also a really nice local produce store within walking distance that has great cheeses, fruit and vegetables.

The condo is on the second floor of a three story building and has a nice balcony overlooking a large redwood tree. The apartment has wifi, hardwood floors, a lazy boy, couch and fireplace making it a great place to relax and unwind or do a little work. Our open plan kitchen has granite kitchen tops and modern amenities which you are welcome to use. Your room is located in one half of the apartment and is quite separate from our side. Your room comes with fresh clean sheets and towels on a very comfortable queen size bed and you have your own private bathroom, tub and shower. We have a washer / dryer in the apartment.

Outside the apartment is a nice hot tub, heated all year round. There are also two pools which are heated May-October, and a sauna. The complex has beautiful gardens and tiny streams running through it with ponds and fountains. It is great for jogging or walking. If you have a car, you can park it in a secure underground parking space. You will no doubt enjoy your stay here :)

  • I stayed with my wife the first time with AirBnB at John and Yings appartment, and it was absolutly amazing. They took care of us, gave informations about the city and we had a very good time in the famous silicon valley.
    The room was absolutly comfortable, and we slept very well, so that with the help of John and Ying we could discover the area.
    Thank to both, and hope we keep in touch.
