The Space

Just one block from Lincoln Avenue (The Avenue), this upstairs unit of a remodeled Victorian home is an ideal place for a business stay or a nice visit to this beautiful neighborhood of Willow Glen.

It has an En-Suite Master Bedroom with a King-sized bed, adjacent to a gorgeous Master Bathroom.
The other bedroom has a Queen-sized bed and a separate Full Bathroom with Claw-feet tub.

A sitting room equipped with a breakfast kitchen (toaster oven, coffee maker, a refrigerator, electric water kettle) and a 32" TV with hundreds of comcast channels will make your stay even more enjoyable.

There is also a Veranda at the front of the house where you can enjoy the day.

Guest Access

The Suite is on the second floor of the house where guests can enjoy the entire private unit, as well as a private front porch. Please do not go to the rear of the house as it belongs to a different unit.

Interaction with Guests

We're here to help but also respect your privacy. So you have an option on how much or how little interaction you'd like to have with us :)

I check emails very frequently and respond quickly but not always available to answer calls. Therefore please call for emergency only - please dial twice within 3 minutes.

The Neighborhood

Willow Glen is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in San Jose. You can enjoy a nice stroll looking at beautiful houses with amazing architecture.
It is also very convenient to get anywhere in the Bay Area from here. It's only a few minutes drive to Downtown San Jose and you can walk to Campbell if you like on the beautiful Los Gatos Trail. You can take the Caltrain to San Francisco - the bus stop is only a block from the house. Or you can drive to Carmel by the Sea that takes only 1.5 hours. Santa Cruz and Capitola are only 30 minutes away. If you are a shopper, the Great Mall in Milpitas is only 20 minutes away and so is the Premium Outlet in Gilroy.

Getting around

Bus #64 and #82 stop a block away from the Suite and will take you to downtown San Jose.

15 minutes from Mineta San Jose International Airport
10 minutes from downtown San Jose
10 minutes to Diridon Caltrain Station
50 minutes from San Francisco

Check In
  • We had booked Jojo's place for a family visit. Jojo was very accommodating to our numerous demands. The place was immaculate, and very nicely decorated. If given the opportunity again, we would love to book with Jojo again.

  • Wonderful location close to the main dining/shopping area of Willow Glen; also within enjoyable 1/2 mile walk of where our daughter and son-in-law live. Very nice living arrangement; master bed/bath was quite nice & excellent cooling system. Very quiet.
    Would definitely go there again.

  • Jojo responded quickly to our request and to our questions. This gorgeous suite is exactly as pictured. And I do mean gorgeous. My friend and I felt like we were living in a palace. Best shower EVER. I could hear my friend sighing with contentment before, during, and after. The place is immaculate. That said, it takes a certain guest to appreciate it. It would not be suitable for casual, hanging out type people and certainly not for children. Jojo sent us a list of rules emphasizing quiet and shoe removal. We were a bit intimidated to be honest. But after we saw the place we understood why.

  • What a great discovery! Located in Willow Glen, this rental was the perfect antidote for jet lag. I was up very early and headed a half block to Starbucks. I stayed in the apartment with my adult son. We each had our own rooms and bathrooms. Every amenity was provided. Meticulously clean, attractively appointed, luxurious baths, comfortable sleeping on great mattresses, and perfectly located, our stay was seamless. We parked on a side street steps from front gate, had very easy ingress and egress and plenty of privacy. We were on the go with no time for adjusting or learning. This was a "user friendly" place. Highly recommend it!

  • We loved staying in this beautiful suite. Everything was clean, tasteful and perfectly well appointed. The location in Willow Glen is fantastic. Walkable to all the lovely shops and restaurants that this neighborhood has to offer, and a quick drive to downtown San Jose. We will forever dream about the amazing master bath shower! Jojo very graciously bent her policy on no children (for an extra fee) and we brought our two kids, but we were worried the whole time about their noise level and might only consider this for a grown up trip in the future. Still, how accommodating to allow us to try it out with kiddos! This is a very quiet and extremely comfortable flat. Fantastic!
