Carol was an amazing host and welcomed me into her home. She was very hospitable throughout my stay and I even got to go to a local farmers market with her. It was wonderful.

Carol is extremely warm, caring and an absolute gem of a host! She was very welcoming when I arrived. Room was very quiet, location is terrific, as you can walk to the vibrant downtown restaraunts. The bed was very comfortable , and I'm picky, so that means it was extremely comfortable. The gardens are just gorgeous , her home is a little oasis in Mountain view! I will definitely be back! Thankyou Carol for the terrific experience!

I stayed at Carol's place for just over 5 weeks this summer and had a wonderful time. I was in town working at a business in Mountain View that was within a 10-minute walk from the Airbnb. It's located close to downtown Mountain View (~10-minute walk) so I found it easy to walk there for food. The lodgings were very nice. The room was very comfortable and quiet - and private. Carol rents out two of her extra rooms to Airbnb guests and the guests share a bathroom, which was nice and was never a problem. During my long stay, I had access to the washer and dryer to clean my clothes and a maid came by approximately weekly to clean my room. I loved being able to occasionally chat with Carol when coming home in the evening and resting outside in the garden (in the hammock in the back or at the table in front). The gardens were wonderful and it made the home feel so much more inviting. Carol was always sure to contact me to let me know if they were going to be out late or if other guests would be arriving, I never felt out-of-the-loop. Carol has two cats and a dog whom I enjoyed getting to spend some time with (especially the adorable cat Bodhi). I felt very welcome, and comfortable, during my stay and would stay here again in a heartbeat. Next time I'm in town I'll be booking this lodging immediately.

My stay at Carol's home was exactly as expected and so lovely. She takes care in making her home your own, and is a very easy person to talk with. Her pets are quite friendly, and the bed was a dream. I'm looking forward to coming back!

What a wonderful experience! A lovely home surrounded by gardens, a quiet and restful space, and a sweet hostess. The location is convenient to downtown Mountain but being on a side street with no through traffic means that it's very quiet and restful. Carol is a dear, friendly and pleasant, willing to talk or give you space as you wish. By the time I left, I felt like she was an old friend. As an added bonus, you get to share a house with a sweet-natured Grumpy Cat lookalike.

Hi, I was born and raised abroad, though have been a Bay Area native for 30 years. I've had a relocation business for many years and am very familiar with the activities and places to visit, which I'd gladly recommend to you. My 11 year old son and I travel often, and he goes to Waldorf school. We have been "green" for the last 15 years - we love to give back to the earth in all the ways that we can.

I am a seasoned Airbnb host and have also stayed with a number of wonderful Airbnb hosts. Our guests have been travelers from many parts of USA, South Africa, Spain, Australia, Germany, India, France, China, Colombia, Denmark, Russia, England, Hong Kong, Belgium, Greece, Canada, Slovenia, Indonesia, Scotland, Ireland, Panama, Hungary, Taiwan, Japan and I am excited about hosting you too.

Welcome to our organic home or the furnished, downtown, corporate apartment, two blocks down from my home.
