About this listing
Private and peaceful room in a classic, newly-renovated house designed by Joseph Eichler in 1960s. Located in the middle of Silicon Valley, 5 mins from Apple, and minutes away from groceries. Perfect for traveling, student, and intern/employee.
This is the common living area. Everything you see here is just as much yours as it is ours. Feel free to hang out and enjoy the sunshine.
**The mattress is a special, imported, "super-firm" full-size mattress from Taiwan, which is very good for your back, usually for older people.**
There is a ton of life in this area with a lot of opportunity to embrace, and yet this room is set in just the right spot to enjoy peace and quiet when you come home. The local area is full of people who are up to amazing things - from startup founders to software engineers, researchers, interns, managers/directors, and investors - there's a lot you can accomplish here.

Your private bedroom comes with everything you see in the photos, including a lot of closet space.

• Common courtesy, consideration for others and a good sense of humor are always a good idea.
• You can leave your sneakers outside and use the sandals provided inside the house. The floor is cleaned regularly.
• You’ll have access to the kitchen and the dining area. You can cook light foods such as instant noodles. Intensive cooking (meats, fish, curry) and baking which will cause lots of smell are not ok. Please clean up after yourself and keep things the way you found them.
• Longer term guests please use one set of bed linens and bath towel, and wash them with your own load of laundry.
• No smoking inside or around the unit or on the balcony.
• Quiet hours Sunday through Thursday are between 10:45 pm and 8 am for your consideration as well as other housemates - please no loud music or calls that might disturb others during this time. Friday and Saturday quiet hours start at 12 am.

Gio is a fantastic host. His house was the perfect option for me while I was searching for a job.
Gio and Willy were amazing hosts. I spent more than one month and had a beautiful experience. So far the best airbnb's place I've ever been. The place is very quiet and confortable. I sincerely recommend it.
Excellent host!, Gio is a great friend, so kind and smart guy. The house is very comfortable, with all the services, great location, super fast wifi, food, TV, garden, etc..
Yosen was always there to help out whenever a problem arose. He and the other roommates were all very friendly and we all got along well.
Amazing Experience! Yosen speaks a lot of language! And he learns pretty fast! The location is really nice. I especially love the huge tree in the back yard. The styling of the house is also my favorite.
Giovanno was a great host! I'm a video journalist and used his home to film an interview. He was very accommodating and happy to help out with my somewhat out of the usual request.
Yosen was a great host. I was warmly welcomed and he will not hesitate to stop whatever he is doing to have a conversation with me. He's a great guy and tries to help in whatever way he can too. The house is located at the heart of sunnyvale, super convenient with a car. Its a cool place and i will definitely go back again if i have the chance(:
