The Space

We are a friendly family of two who love hosting and meeting wonderful people from all over the world, and look forward to welcoming you to our 3 bedroom 2 bath inviting, colorful and relaxing home. We are situated in a safe and vibrant downtown neighborhood.

You would stay in one of our two quiet, private, bedrooms one with 2 twin beds and the other with a queen bed. Each room has a window and closet space and there are hardwood and bamboo floors throughout the house. The beds are super comfortable and have really nice linens. Guests always comment how well they slept and how quiet it is. The bathroom is shared with the other room and has a shower filter so chemicals are filtered out. There are the basic bathroom organic toiletries provided and if anything is needed I will be able to provide it.

We are 15 min walk to Mountain View's vibrant downtown Castro Street where you will find great dining and cafes, Ava's grocery store, shops, 3 bookstores,library, swimming pool and more. A 20 min walk to train and corporate shuttle bus. Whole Foods and Trader Joe's are all close by.
We are a pleasant walk to 500startups, Y Combinator, other Castro street starups. Bike to Stanford University, LinnkedIn, NASA, Goooggle, and many others.

Light use of the kitchen and self serve breakfast of tea, fruits and yoghurt. If you are here when I am cooking you are always included to join in what we are having. Guests are always included in movies, parties at the house or other parties, lectures, concerts, hikes...generally we include our guest to any extent they would like to be included.
There is use of washer and dryer, backyard hammock, living spaces and the beautiful serene front garden with a table to work from. There is WiFi fast internet. We have 3 very friendly indoor/outdoor cats and they are very happy to sit in laps. Organic bathroom soaps and shampoos and cleaning items provided. Ironing board and iron, hairdryer etc.

If you are more than two people, I will add an air mattress to your room. We offer another private room with a 2 twin beds, plus another twin air mattresses, thus accommodating up to 5/6 visitors. Please do check with me first if you are a group of 3 or more guests. There is also a family room where the air matresses can be set up.
I have a 6 unit apartment building 2 blocks away and have one of the units furnished and listed on Airbnb and that can accommodate 4, one room with two twins and another room with a queen bed. Great location 5 minutes closer to downtown Castro St.

I was born and raised abroad, though have been a Bay Area native now for 30 years and am very familiar with the activities and places to visit. I had a relocation business for 20 years.

PHOTOS - Please note, our photos are a bit out of date and not showing some of the recent upgrades like addition of a queen bed and recently installed hardwood floor in the bathroom. We will be adding new photos soon.

Looking forward to meeting and hosting you!
