Alex and Trish were amazing hosts. they Left us some food and wine to enjoy. They were on every detail to make our stay (very short unfortunately) perfect. And sure it was.
The place was beautiful, the garden was unique, we truly recommend their home to anyone who wants to stay in a great location in San Jose but at the same time quiet and peaceful.
Our stay at Trish and Alex's place was delightful. The description of the listing was accurate. The place was very clean, nicely decorated, and had all the amenities we needed. Trish was very accommodating and went above and beyond with special touches such as having our favorite breakfast foods, beverages and coffee ready for us upon arrival. She also made our children's experience exceptional by leaving toys and a wonderful gift bag filled with goodies that they loved. All questions we had while we were there were answered promptly and she spent time writing up thoughtful recommendations of restaurants for us to try/visit based on our preferences. The neighborhood is downtown San Jose, so there was some noise and urban type activities (construction, cars, ambulances, etc) . The house is situated next to a parking lot of a retail building and across from what looked like an apartment complex; the neighboring house on the other side is very close, however when you are in the house and especially the gorgeous backyard, it feels quite private and secure. Because we were attending an event in downtown San Jose at the convention center for most of the week, the place was a good choice for us due to proximity of the location to the convention center. It was very hot while we were visiting (high 80s to 90s), there is no A/C but both bedrooms had fans which helped a little.
The host canceled this reservation 25 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
