My home is a older cozy home located near downtown San Jose. I'm a pet lover, so there is a dog in my home called Brody, very lovable and social, and I also pet sit and will have other dogs from time to time in my home. House does not smell like dogs. : )

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

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 by walking/bathing and helping them with general pet sitting in my home. I now have large Schnauzer named Brody in my home who is very lovable and energetic.
Back yard is very large for the city, excellent for relaxing, sunbathing, or chilling! 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'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.
