I am a corporate traveler who usually stays with the St Claire or Marriott downtown. I stayed with Angela this week and the experience was awesome. Angela was extremely friendly, and the place is very clean, with clean towns and complimentary drinks, snacks. I highly recommend staying with Angela if you are in SJ.
Angela is a very nice host. She allowed me to check in early because of my flight schedule and gave me a key and a little tour when I arrived. My bedroom was very clean and she turned on the mini-fridge so I would have a place for my groceries. The curtains kept out lots of light and the bed was very comfortable, so I got good sleep here. The house is close to the highway, so my walk to work in downtown San Jose was a little dicey, but Willow Glen was a beautiful neighborhood and I enjoyed walking to Lincoln Avenue where there's a nice amount of shops.
The bathroom is small. Because the other bedroom was also occupied and we shared this space, I kept most of my things in my bedroom, though I could fit a few on a shelf that Angela cleared off. The shower is so small that I took half of my showers at work that week.
Though Angela writes that she currently does not have pets, she has since gotten a very sweet giant schnauzer who is friendly but will certainly try to eat whatever you're working on in the kitchen! Angela also dogsits, which meant that over the weekend there were four dogs in the house, as well as four people (Angela, myself, the other AirBnb guest, and a friend who is staying with Angela for the time being). The kitchen was very cluttered when I arrived but after a day or two Angela cleared off the counters a bit so it was easier to cook. The living room was full of dog beds and other things so when I was home I spent most of the time in my room.
Overall, the room was nice, but the house was a little more chaotic than what I had expected.
Cassidy wrote a few things that are bit harsh and seemed to rate everything in my home which is not appropriate. The small guest shower is small and there is a picture of it, and I actually added a handheld shower wand but she did not like it, so I took it out for now. The overall listing does mention that I do pet sitting, however this 1 weekend, I had friend who last minute changed the date to include a weekend which is why there was an overflow on that weekend only, usually it is 1 or 2 pets max. And, the extra guest is here for a bit while I'm in recovery from an illness, I currently have a new Picc line in my arm for this past month and I need help keeping things picked up for the house and help with the picc line. I couldn't of made it through the first week without assistance on the picc line. I"m sure Cassidy must of noticed this. Sorry, life happens to all of us. My home is not a Hilton or a Hyatt and I do the best that I can, the rooms are as advertised, very economical and much improved over the past few years, plus I sold off 1 car and now have room for folks to park in the driveway. In addition, I've added a new microwave to the larger Airbnb room and a new expensive mini-refrigerator was added right before Cassidy checked in for her room that she used.
Another great stay with Angela! The place was incredibly clean and quiet, and Angela herself is a great host. She's very welcoming and friendly, and made checking in and out easy. Felt at home the whole stay, and I would absolutely come again!
Angela was very caring and the room was great. Recommended, unless you don't like dogs.
The room was clean and spacious and the neighborhood was very nicely located to transit and other amenities.
The host was very warm and welcoming. She was always helpful and made my stay in San Jose so nice and easy. I would stay here again. Great place and person!
Absolutely love Angela ! She is the kindest person ever. She is considerate and very helpful even if you just want to talk. I enjoyed my stay here. I love her aura and she is always so positive and always smiling so the start of your day is always good. She helped with anything I needed. I would highly recommend Angela and anyone who stays here will feel the same. Thankyou Angela ! Xx Tasha

About the Host, Angela
I'm a well educated, diversified individual that is easy going and yet pretty well accomplished in both the military and as a civilian over the past several years as an Engineer.
I'm excited about this Airbnb service, I think it's a great way to meet corporate travelers on work assignments in the bay area that prefer a home environment and it would be a great networking tool and a good way to make the holidays more fun.
Please view my linked profile for more specifics.
