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.

  • Really enjoyed staying at Mark's place. Clean, quiet, easy to find and in a nice neighborhood on a quiet street.

  • Although Mark was traveling, he reached out to me several times to be sure that I had what I needed. He had appointed an onsite representative -- Lyn -- who helped me get settled and answered all my questions. She even streamed some of my favorite TV programs for me! There is no cable, so streaming TV shows is the practice there.

    The other people staying at Mark's were very nice and I enjoyed talking with all of them. And Kenji, Mark's dog, was a delight!

    I had never been in an Eichler home so it was an interesting experience with the Atrium just inside the entrance and the rest of the house configured around it. It's very open and airy and therefore very cool in the house. The room I stayed in was nice with a very comfortable queen-size bed.

    I would recommend Mark's house for an economical retreat!

  • We spent quite a long time in Mark's house with my husband. I should say that this is the best experience I had on airbnb - Mark is an amazing host, his house is really unique - atmosphere, all the little decoration details and everything you can need! You can spend the fist day just observing all the details here. And then you meet Kenjii! The cutest and funniest dog ever!! He would definitely insist on you playing with him!
    As for the facilities - Mark is very kind to help you in case of any need. I became a lazy wife here - the house is cleaned, you have only to wash your clothes - press one button and to dry it - press one more button :)
    House is big, I definitely liked the yard and the atrium inside - there are a lot of flowers and greenery.
    Mark also allowed us to invite our friends and colleagues to have a barbecue. We were a bit loud, so I should say sorry for that.
    So, how I can give more then 5 starts? 6, even 10!! Do not hesitate choosing this place!!

  • Awesome place to have landed. Mark was a gracious host. I was able to take over his kitchen to cook which made it feel like .. Fresh juice from his trees was another great treat. Kenji the dog of the house was sweet and a great buddy since we had to leave our pup at home. Mark is now part of our family. We loved our experience.

  • I stayed here for a month while relocating from Miami to San Francisco when I landed a job at eBay. This place was a perfect relocation spot! Mark is a very kind and loving person, he completely went out of his way to help me out, he even came to pick me up at the airport which was very kind of him and showed me around San José and San Francisco. I come from Barcelona and I really appreciated having a local show me around. The place is conveniently located only 2 miles away from the eBay headquarters. The place is also very nice with all the amenities and the room was comfortable and cozy. I completely fell for Kenji, Mark's dog, who is very sweet and loves going to the park near the house to fetch some ball. My overall experience was better than I ever imagined, specially because I didn't feel like being in a lonely hotel and Mark is a great host. I highly recommend booking this place and meeting Mark and Kenji. This place felt the closest to home for a relocation landing spot.

  • I stayed here for a month while moving back to the Bay Area. Mark is a great host and a lot of work has been put into the home for making the bedrooms comfortable for guests. The bedrooms have unique touches with wall art and set up with a desk with pens, paper, even a water bottle upon arrival.

    The shared spaces are very roomy and clean. There's a huge kitchen with a little extra of everything. Overall very positive airbnb experience.

  • Stayed here for 2 weeks and had a great time, Mark is an excellent host and was very responsive and helpful much before my move-in date. Both the other guests and Mark are very open and laid back, makes it very easy to make yourself at home.

  • Mark has a friendly, open and inviting home. I enjoyed my stay and the fact that his home offers a number of amenities. Staying there felt like being part of a small community and Mark went the extra mile to answer any questions I had about the area. The location is in a nice, older neighborhood and was very convenient for my purposes, traveling to Santa Clara University and exploring San Jose, and has convenient access to shops and restaurants. Would recommend to anyone open to meeting new people. I enjoyed the company of his crafty canine companions as well!

  • I used this room for a visiting academic of 20 years. The location in San Jose is good, the room is good. There where a few small things, however none of this was a distraction.

    By far the best is that the host Mark is superb. He is a great individual, a gracious host, his whole house is available to you. He helped a new person to the area superbly and went out of his way on any request.

    Kind Regards,
    Kees Vissers
