A private apartment (no personal stuff) with private entrance for you to enjoy. This is ideal for Business Travelers to go home to and unwind in this beautiful Suite or walk to great restaurants/bars within blocks.
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.
Here's a review from our recent guest that summarized the Business Suite quite well:
We were so impressed by the cleanliness as well as the very tasteful decor of Jojo's place in Willow Glen. I don't know when the house was built...early 1900's perhaps, but it seems that all the mouldings, doors, hardware are original and in pristine condition. That being said the bathrooms are totally modern with the strongest shower I've ever had!
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 Roku to watch Netflix, etc.
There is also a Veranda at the front of the house where you can enjoy the day.
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.

Although we live on-site, we do respect your privacy. So you have an option on how much or how little interaction you'd like to have with us :)
Email is the best way to reach me as I'm not always available to take your call.
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.
Parking: On the street, in front of or across the street from the house, or around the block. It is fairly easy to find a spot.
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

Loved the private entrance if fantastic and the suite is beautiful. I loved the Victorian feel to the space. JoJo was very quick to respond and checked in to make sure things were good. House directions and rules were very clear which I truly appreciate!
Jojo was an amazing host from the moment we requested the suite to saying goodbye when we vacated. The communication was easy (we did not have the pleasure of meeting personally) The executive suite was truly as beautiful as described in the photos, it was such a wonderful place and space to escape to after hectic conference days. It's location is in a trendy neighborhood with great little restaurants and coffee houses a 3 minute walk away. Downtown SJ was a 7 to 10 minute Uber ride away as well. We highly recommended Jojo and her executive suite and will hope to stay there on our next visit to San Jose.
The apartment was just amazing with beautiful bedrooms and gorgeous bathrooms! The best shower I've had whilst staying in the US.
Great wifi connection and I love that the house has recycling bins and an electric water kettle.
We were a party of two but the house is perfectly sized for up to four people with two large bedrooms and two great sized bathrooms. All beautifully decorated.
Easy transport connections to Central San Jose and getting to San Francisco airport was a simpler trip than I had anticipated.
There is a lovely selection of restaurants nearby and the Starbucks (visible from the front gate) being open so early on Sunday morning was perfect.
If I get the opportunity to return to San Jose I would look to stay here again.
Thank you Jojo for a lovely place to stay.
Beautiful, immaculate, home. Great locations. Quiet neighborhood. Cute downtown with restaurants, coffee shops and wine bar's 1 block away. My stay could not have been better.
We had a great experience. The place is beautiful, clean, comfy beds, slept like a rock, love the neighborhood, stone's throw from starbucks, restaurants and cool shops within walking distance. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. And Jojo was awesome to accommodate our last minute request. Oh, and plenty of on-street parking right in front of the house. Thank you Jojo, for everything!
Great place. Clean and very comfortable. Convenient to San Jose but out of the way enough to be quiet and find parking.
