About this listing
We live in a safe community close to public transportation and major freeways, but not so close that you can actually hear them. We welcome you into our home and try our best to provide a nice warm family setting. We provide a home away from home.
This is a cute little room with a full size futon. The futon has a four inch memory foam mattress for super comfort. There is also limited closet space but, plenty for most people that have stayed with us. Lots of desk space with a pull out writing table.
The room is in a nice Mobilehome Park. The home is a manufactured home. Not a trailer or one of the older mobilehomes with paneling and such.
We have wireless internet. We have an average of 19 ping 58.49 download speed and 11.14 upload speed. We bought our own modem and router since Comcast/xfinity just wasn't cutting it in terms of their modem. We know how important internet access is to our guests. If your laptop doesn't have a wireless card, we can provide you with an Ethernet cable for a wired connection. We have an average of 19 ping 58.49 download speed and 11.14 upload speed. We have our own modem and router as Comcast/Xfinity just wasn't doing the job. We know how important internet access is to our guests. We just recently cancelled out cable service. Most people don't watch TV while they stay with us. So, we kept the internet and got rid of the cable.
Storage space available under the desk for your suitcases and also space in the entertainment center for storing things.
The bath is shared with whomever is staying in our other room and by my daughter during the night, because my boyfriend and I live together. My daughter only uses my shower, never the guest bath one. The bathroom is a full bath, with a shower and a tub. Nice and clean.
You may cook. I have a shelf space in the pantry available for you to store your food and room in the fridge as well. You may do laundry if you need to. Make yourself at home.
You may eat at the dining room table or in your room and I have bed trays that I can make available for your use.
You may use the laundry room to do your laundry. Fresh towels and sheets available in the linen cabinets.
Stay and make your self at home in your home away from home.
Due to the increase in the use of utilities, I've had to increase my room rate a little bit. Hopefully this is still affordable for everyone considering all that we offer our guests.
We are easy access to all public transit modes and really easy access to all the major freeways. We are also 15 mins. away depending on traffic, from the HP Pavilion, The Convention Center and Downtown.
We treat our guests like family, but we don't intrude. You can come and go as you like, just like a hotel. How ever much you socialize with us is up to you. Money is tight, so we don't arrange a nice meal like we used to do for our guests. But you are most definitely welcome to stay with us and enjoy your home away from home.
As our guest you have access to the kitchen, the laundry room and the dining area. Of course you also have access to the guest bathroom. :)
Interaction with Guests
We only interact with guests as much as our guests choose to interact with us. Some guests like to sit down with us and have a meal. Some stay exactly as they would in a hotel. We let our guests stay however way they like and choose how much socializing they do with us. After all it is their stay, their trip.
Our community is a safe environment and at night it is super quiet. You feel quite removed from the city even though you're not.
Bus stop right outside our community, that leads you to the lightrail or the train station. Wherever you like.
Other Things to Note
Currently we can't accommodate guests staying more than two nights. We are dealing with a situation that we are hoping to soon get resolved.
No drunk and disorderly conduct please. You may drink but not get drunk. I don't care how well behaved you are when you are drunk. We take no chances. No drug usage in the house. Please be discreet and mindful during bedroom activity.;) If you smoke please do so outside. Don't leave the front or back door open wide while smoking or stepping outside. Please always remember to take your housekey when leaving as we may not always be able to let you back in the house because we may not be here. Always remember to lock the front/back door when leaving and when returning to the house. An unlocked door is a safety concern. Also, please close your bedroom window when leaving the house. If you have a sensitivity to noise or particular hours that you keep, please communicate that to us. Advisable to bring earplugs, because although we aren't living in a noisy area, you will be in a home with other people that keep different hours and it may not be the silence you are seeking. It is however not a noisy home.
Maria is a great host. She quickly responded to my requests for stay (done on the same day). The room/house/complex matches its description.
Maria was a wonderful host and she made us feel so comfortable. Overall, it was a nice stay for me and my mom.
Maria was a terrific host during my stay in Silicon valley. She is friendly and will chat when engaged, but also let you have your privacy. I highly recommend staying with Maria if you are looking for a comfortable place to sleep while in SV on short assignments. Thank you.
Maria and Steve were a pleasure to stay with.
Highly recommended, and would definitely stay again!
Maria was a great hostess, she was nice and so was her family. The room was nice, the neighborhood was nice and quiet.
Maria was very helpful with giving directions and where to grab a bite to eat so late at night. She made use feel welcome and even messaged me to see if we were okay since we took longer than expected to get to her place.

About the Host, Maria
I am in a committed relationship with my live in boyfriend of a few years now. I am a Mom to a wonderful daughter. I used to be a Nanny, but I am now a full time Airbnb host. We love meeting people from all over the world and making new friends. My boyfriend works and my daughter does work as a cinematographer. It's her passion. Our rooms are very comfortable and we have easy access to all norms of public transportation. Easy access to the freeways as well and only 10 minutes from downtown. If you are looking for an affordable place to stay, please stay with us. We don't discriminate. All people from all walks of life are welcome.
