The Space

Hello Airbnb guest!

My home is a older cozy home located near downtown San Jose.

Very new medium firm mattress, very comfortable, encased to guarantee no bed bugs , plus an additional waterproof protective cover that can be washed/bleached each use. Purchased this bedset at Sleeptrain 11/24/12.

Student Desk available in room for whatever work you're like to do.

I have a 170 degree Far-Infrared Sauna in back room, Hi-Speed Wifi, private bathroom w/shower. Very secure & safe neighborhood, garage to park your bicycle if you have one, lots of cycling clubs and choice areas to ride within 5-15 miles. Driveway parking is available if you have a rental car. BBQ Grill is also available for your use if you like.

Please no smoking in house/illegal drug use, although you're welcome to overindulge in wine or whatever alcoholic beverage your prefer as long as you're happy and civil : )

Also, I have been a Mary Kay representative for a number of years. All guests are welcome to purchase any products they want or need at a 25% discount. Just ask, otherwise I will not mention it out of respect for your privacy.

There are 3 air cleaners in the air house, great for folks with sensitivities to chemicals, smoke and pet dander allergies. I currently do not have any pets at this time. I am however, a big animal person growing up in Ohio in the farm land, I often take care of friends dogs/cats walking/bathing and help them with general pet sitting.

Back yard is very large for the city, excellent for relaxing, sunbathing, or chilling! I have a hammock that is very nice. This is safe and relatively quite neighborhood on a dead end street. So street traffic is very minimal. There is also a convenience/liquor store on the corner to meet any last minute snack needs/beer/coffee or whatever you like.

This house is in fairly quaint and very friendly neighborhood called Willow Glen, and we are only a few miles from an even smaller town Campbell. Excellent dining choices in both communities, plus downtown San Jose is quite good. The house is a couple of miles from EBay, Xilinx, Adobe, San Jose State, and have easy access to all freeways. Los Gatos is only 8 miles away, Santa Cruz is 25 miles, Palo Alto is 22 miles, San Francisco is 48 miles, Los Angeles is 310 miles, so we are close to everything. Amtrak comes in at Diridon Station, and Lightrail/Caltrain is $2 per 45 minute ride, if you'd like to explore San Francisco, go shopping, see the Golden Gate Bridge and so forth.

I am located within eight (8) minutes each of 3 different 24-Hour Fitness, and a Gold's Gym locations and ALL the main highways (Hwy 17, Hwy 85, Hwy 87, Hwy 280, & Highway 101). There is also public transportation just three (3) blocks away.

Kitchen is available if you like to cook something now and then, or have a nice breakfast..or you can walk to a Starbucks about 2 blocks away. Plenty of local restaurants or grocery stores within minutes of the house.

Washer/Dryer is available for your use as well. Your bathroom will be stocked with fresh toiletries/hairdryer and towels.

Friends enjoy my home here in the bay area.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Very good stay as usual ( I think that was my fourth time). Angela is just a very nice host, witty, good humor. The house is conveniently located :) See ya and thanks again.

    February 2014
  • Angela was a very gracious host. I really enjoyed her company and appreciated her kindness.

    January 2014
  • Angela was so pleasant and interesting and helpful. I was only there to sleep and shower but she parked on the street to make it easier for me. I am walking with a cane but her home is so nice, and accessible.

    January 2014
  • ANGELA was warm and welcoming.
    Love the area of Willow Glen. It was a chilly sunny day but I walked and shopped the boutiques of the cute village before grabbing a 14 minute cab ride to the airport.
    We had wonderful margaritas in the Willow Glen hub...industrial strength! !Angela was gracious as I was exhausted and flaked out quickly!
    Great stay!!! When back in san jose I will return!!!

    December 2013
  • Angela was a great host and she provided lots of the little things that made it a great stay.

    December 2013
  • Angela was an awesome host and the room/house is situated in a great location close to restaurants and easy access to the highways if needed. Angela was able to show me around the town on several nights even though she was busy, and she was very personable and approachable at all times. I would highly recommend future airbnb'ers to rent from her place and if I am ever in the area, I would most likely book again! Thanks Angela for the stay.

    December 2013
  • Thank you Angela for a great 2 days. Good location to get to Stanford and for the South Bay. See you again on my next trip.

    November 2013
  • It was great staying at Angela's place. She is warm and helpful, and I felt very welcome there.

    October 2013
  • What a wonderful host. My second stay at Angela's house. Conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood, also good for jogging in the morning before work starts.

    October 2013
  • Angela is a delightful person and a wonderful host! She is personable, easy-going, helpful, fun to talk to and just plain sweet. The guest bedroom is just right, with an ultra-comfy bed and some of the softest cotton sheets I've ever slept on. Full use of the kitchen was essential to me and this was no problem. There are nice outdoor spaces to hang out in, and a beautiful living room with comfy couches, a nice TV with DVD/Blu-Ray, and a great movie collection guests can enjoy. I don't think I could have done better for a fun place to stay in San Jose.

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.
