Description

The space

You are choosing a very unique home ...if you stay with us as a guest, you would be living in a Mid-Century Modern (1960's) home that has been updated, it's an awesome home built by Joseph Eichler. This is a four bedroom, 2 bathroom home, it has several areas inside and around the home available for you to spend time in.

Your bedroom has a very comfortable QUEEN sized mattress and bed frame, pillows and nice sheets, blankets, there is also your desk & chair. Bathroom has a tub/shower and is shared, there is a "tankless" water heater which supplies unlimited hot water, so no one needs to stress about being the last one in the shower or bath, you will have hot water !

We have Hi-Speed 24 mbs Wifi, Shower/tub,we live in a very secure & safe neighborhood, indoor atrium to park your bike, lots of cycling clubs and choice areas to ride within 5-15 miles. I cycle as well, and am willing to share my knowledge. Only item of note is I have one medium sized dog Kenji, once he smells you, you'll be alright, the dog is part of the family and the household so you have to be okay with that. He does not sit on the couches or chairs nor sleep in any of the beds, but he very much thinks he is part of the tribe and he likes to hang out with the humans. And he is protective of you and will expect some occasional back scratch once he gets know you.

Back Yard has a very large redwood deck for relaxing, sunbathing, or chilling! There are five citrus trees, plenty of wind chimes, neighborhood birds and squirrels for your auditory and visual delight. We also have an awesome 104 degree Hot Tub available to you from 7:00am - 11:00pm.

I am an avid bicyclist and motorcyclist, I have a few extra motorcycles around the house, because I ride and work on them. I live in a fairly quaint and very friendly neighborhood called Willow Glen, and we are only a few miles from an even smaller town Campbell. We are 1.3 miles from EBay, 2.5 from Xilinx, 3 miles from Good Samaritan Hospital, Kaiser-Santa Clara is about 9 miles, 5 miles to Adobe San Jose, 6 miles to San Jose State, and have easy access to all freeways. Los Gatos is only 8 miles away, Santa Clara is 12 miles, Santa Cruz Beach is only 25 miles, Palo Alto is 22 miles, San Francisco is 48 miles, Los Angeles is 310 miles, so we are close to everything.

We are within eight (8) minutes each of the three (3) different 24-Hour Fitness locations and minutes away from ALL the main highways .... Highway 17, Highway 85, Highway 87, Highway 280, and Highway 101. There is also public transportation just three (3) blocks away.

Parking is easy and never an issue directly in front of the house.

You have full use of the very modern kitchen, family room with Bose sound system, and have use of our laundry room to wash & dry your clothes. We have a great Press Pot coffee pot....or you can walk/drive to a Starbucks about 8 blocks away. Plenty of local restaurants or grocery stores within minutes of the house. There is a stainless gas BBQ grill in the backyard, and the entire home functions is a great place to entertain.

The house has a very good vibe, we occasionally burn incense, and have a house sound system that plays many musical styles from Pandora on the Bose Lifestyle sound system. We are WiFi enabled so you can surf, listen, watch video with no problem with the Turbo Speed (24mps) AT&T internet that we have. You can also hang out in the back on the Redwood Deck and do computer work, the WiFi works outside as well! We do have a centrally located 50" Plasma TV to watch movies or play Games on.

Basic things like toilet paper, towels, bed sheets, laundry detergent / softner, dishwasher soap, and cleaning supplies, utilities are all included in the guest price!

I don't want to over sell the space, so I'll leave it at that! Questions are welcomed.

All the Common Areas, living room, dining room, Atrium, Family room, Back Yard, the 17' entertainment table, the 350 SF Redwood deck, and all the lemons and grapefruit that you can pick and eat.

I am a fairly interactive host, I do enjoy discovering about who they are, what they may know more about than me, and talking about the world, music, food, travel, people, animals and culture (NO POLITICS!)

The weather, the trees, the animals, sitting in the back yard there is always the sound of the lovely wind chimes, or the sound of birds first thing in the morning. Its pretty darn quite and very safe.

Yes there is the VTA (Valley Transit Authority) that runs the buses and light rail here in Silicon Valley. I can also recommend downloading the smart phone APP "UBER" it works with superior reliability and ease in the area.
