In short, a phenomenal experience. No amount of photos or well written descriptions can capture how special Joe and his property are. I felt immediately at home within a few minutes of walking the grounds with Joe, and that spirit lasted my entire stay. While my room was located in the main house, I felt that I could easily slip between have complete and utter privacy to engaging my incredibly warm hosts. You quickly surmise that it is indeed a very special space with some incredible stories behind it, from the property's construction to the incredible caliber of guests Joe has hosted over the years. If you are looking for a tranquil place to stay be it work or family or both, you can't do better than Joe's home. And you'll almost certainly walk away with a wonderful new friend, too.
joe is a very gracious host . the house is beautiful and immaculate. the neighborhood is beautiful and peaceful...a nice break from the hecticness over hyper-growth of the silicon valley. it was raining when i was there and also i left early in am and got back after dark, but the glimpses of the grounds of the estate looked beautiful and i imagine that if you are here during daylight hours and nice days, it would be very nice. saratoga is a quiet peaceful community but actually quite convenient to many parts of silicon valley. the room/ bathroom was very clean, comfortable, private. and parking conveniently right in front of front door inside a secure gated area if you are concerned about having a safe place to park your car. its like pulling up to the front of a hotel to check in..so even though it was pouring rain when i was there..i never got wet going from car to house. : )
The world needs more people like Joe and his wife. Their hospitality is second to none and they are so humble. What I really valued most was the environment. It was quiet and peaceful, the neighbourhood calming and full of tranquility surrounded by beautiful nature. A rare find these days and it was actually hard to leave this place and area. I truly appreciate Joe and his wife opening up their beautiful home as it made my entire business trip actually enjoyable by not having to stay in a regular hotel this time.
Thank you guys, I had a great time there and hope to come back another time to the valley and your home!
It was a pleasure staying with Joseph. His house is awesome and has its own air filtering and water cleaning system. And I can state that you can feel the difference, a good sleep at night, and almost no jetlag impact, wow! Also Joseph is a great host, providing everything you need and very friendly. It was a pleasure meeting Joseph and staying at his place! Will come back there again when I am in the Bay Area!
Joe's place is incredible. From the moment you come through the gated entrance, you are in an oasis of calm and comfort. The grounds are retreat like and beautifully kept.
I stayed in the small room off the entryway. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom very nice with a large shower, plenty of hot water and water pressure.
All the water in the home is spring water too so you get great tasting water right from the tap!
One of the things I really liked about Joe's was how quiet and peaceful it was particularly at night. It was so quiet. The house didn't make a lot of weird noises that can usually keep one up when traveling.
Being completely gated, there is a great sense of security. As a woman traveling on my own, security is a priority. I felt very safe staying at Joe's house.
Joe is an eager host, committed to making your stay a pleasant one. I had full use of the kitchen with plenty of room provided to store my own food as well as dedicated fridge space.
I brought some friends in late one night after we had been out to dinner and Joe was gracious to them as well, even offering persimmons and fresh lemons from the garden and iced spirits.
I was able to do a load of laundry in the laundry room without any trouble.
Joe's place is everything you want an airbnb property to be--comfortable homey but also luxurious and clean, with a host who is friendly and engaging.
Not only would I stay here again but strongly reccommend it to my friends and others as well.
My wife and I had an excellent stay at Joseph's place. The hospitality that Joseph showed us is something we won't forget. Joseph was very generous with letting us use his kitchen, living room and outdoor patios. He has fresh fruit growing from his trees (plums, apricots, lemons, etc) which you can eat. If you haven't tasted freshly picked fruit before you are in for a treat. One of the unexpected bonuses we found to staying here was how great we felt. It might have something to do with the high quality air and water. We slept really well.
The room we stayed in was quiet and very comfortable, and the amenities are very good. If you spend a night here, you'll love it.
Joe, thank you so much for making our first experience in airbnb so great. You certainly made us feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. Tom enjoyed his stay a lot and would absolutely recommend it. Your place is very neat, comfortable and offers the opportunity to meet sharp people.
