About this listing

If this room with the queen bed is booked, there is a second room with a king bed.
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 our quiet, private, bedrooms one with a queen bed. The 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 and 1 year old Tibetan Terrier that has hair so hypoallergenic. Organic bathroom soaps and shampoos and cleaning items provided. Ironing board and iron, hairdryer etc.

If you are more than two people, 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.

Looking forward to meeting and hosting you!

Carol's house is absolutely gorgeous and decked out with character. The room itself was clean, colorful, and quiet. Carol was so wonderful to us and gave amazing travel recommendations which helped guide our trip. We loved it!

The bedroom was comfortable and the garden, as many reviews have noted, is a great place to spend time. Maybe it's my own fault for not reading carefully enough, but there wasn't really any breakfast. I would expect there to be coffee at least.

Carol may be the nicest person I've ever met. The room I rented was clean and just spacious enough. She offered me advice, and while I didn't have a vehicle, she told me exactly where to go and what to do within the location. The bathroom was very clean as well. I only left because the room was not available. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay.

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.
