Less than 5 mins walk to "The village"branding opening shopping mall.

Also, Walking distance to Box, Crown Plaza, Residence Inn Hotel. Price range is 150$+. Better than staying in hotel.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My wife and I stayed 10 days and it was a really nice time. Betty and her partner are so kind and friendly. We could not speak English very well, but we managed to communicate. They are nice host. I want to see them again.
    Location is also good. Los Altos is safe, clean and comfortable.

  • I was scrambling for a place to stay last minute, and Betty was the most responsive person in the area. She and her husband were very welcoming and accommodating. It was nice to be able to come and go as I pleased (with a key code on the front door, no key to worry about carrying or losing). Everything was clean and tidy. If there is no one else staying in the other room, you have the bathroom to yourself, which is nice (the bathroom is between and accessed by both bedrooms). I had an issue using the guest wifi, which I informed them about and I'm confident they will fix, but probably a good idea to make sure it works for you when you arrive.

    Many restaurants within 5 minutes walking distance (try the bulgogi at Su-Dam). It took me closer to 20 minutes to walk to the Caltrain station, but it is an easy walk. There is also Safeway and other grocery stores nearby, between Caltrain and the home, so they are also within walking distance.

    I appreciate the small touches, like the drawer in the bathroom provided a toothbrush and mini toothpaste. I felt like I was staying with relatives who give you your privacy and space, and I prefer that over staying alone at a hotel. I would definitely stay here again!

  • Very clean and private. I never saw my hosts. Everything was organized and communicated effectively via email. The room was clean, comfortable with direct access to a shared bathroom. The location was convenient and the street had sufficient parking so that I was able to park right at the front door both nights. VERY convenient and practical. I will stay there again when I need to be in the area.

  • I stayed here when I was looking for a permanent apartment for my visit at Stanford. Everything went smoothly and as promised: no surprises. Betty was the most helpful and friendly person: she saved me from a lot of troubles. The most easiest way to get there is Marguerite SE but only on evenings.

  • Very quiet place to stay. The room was clean enough. There are a lot of restaurants nearby, that means a lot of options to eat with different price ranges. The hosts are good people, they allowed me to stay a few more hours after check out time. Happy 2014!

  • Very gracious hosts with a nice home in a great location in San Antonio/Mountain View. There were a few restaurants just a few blocks away that blew my mind. Very convenient for a Silicon Valley business trip, including being a walkable distance to the CalTrain station.

  • Betty's house is really nice and clean. The house located near Caltrain and shopping mall. Hosts are also kind and considerate.

    I really enjoyed my stay there!
