Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Jason and Carolina were great hosts, they were friendly and open and very nice people. I had the great pleasure of grabbing dinner with them one night during my stay. The place was clean, comfortable, cozy, quiet, and peaceful. I had full access to the kitchen, fridge, and the common living room area. I had everything I could ask for. The location was absolutely convenient as well, being in downtown Mountain View. I am very happy I chose to stay with them.

  • Great place and a short walk from everything in Mountain View. Jason was super welcoming and the place was nice and clean, awesome hosting, awesome space. Check it out if you're planning on heading to Mountain View!

    March 2014
  • We stayed with Jason and Carolina for two weeks while relocating to the area, and had a great stay. The apartment is just as in the photos - peaceful, comfortable, and incredibly clean. The location is amazing for not only exploring Castro Street but the entire area, as the Caltrain is so close. Having seen the high price of real estate in the area, I think their listing is great value!

    Jason and Carolina were wonderful and friendly, and encouraged us to make use of the space. We cooked in the kitchen every day, and enjoyed the living room and patio. In sum, we always felt relaxed and at home while staying with them. Highly recommend. Thanks again Jason & Carolina!

  • Carol and Jason house was my temple in Mountain View. More than a beautiful and cozy place to stay, this couple shared with me the feeling of "home sweet home" that they have there. All my gratefulness!

    February 2014
  • Great spot. Comfy room and a perfect location. Walk to the train, light rail, downtown.

    February 2014
  • Jason is a great host, very welcoming and friendly. He has made sure I had a great stay and I would recommend him and his place to anyone staying in Mountain View.

  • Great host, great location. If Internet is important to you, be sure you can use an Ethernet cable with your laptop.

    Response from Jason:

    Right after I saw this message, I purchased a USB-to-Ethernet Network Adapter so that anyone with a USB port can plug into our fast Ethernet connection. It works for Macs, Chromebooks, Windows, and Linux systems (and most systems don't require installation). We're also replacing the Wifi router to see if that will give a better wireless signal as well. In any case, we'll have these USB adapters to use for backup just in case - we've ordered two of them. We appreciate feedback. It's surely useful to let us know these things in person so that we can do something about it while staying. Great to host you Steven. Thanks. Jason.

  • For my first AirBnB stay; have to say it couldn't have been more pleasant. Jason and Carolina are such genuinely nice people and amazingly welcoming. Their place is spotless, peaceful and in a great location. Jason is clearly someone who knows the area better than most and gave me an underground "to-do" list, it was a great guide. Highly recommend it.

  • Great location (3 minutes away from Castro Street / Mountain View Caltrain), nice and spacious room (very comfortable mattress!) and wonderful hosts. I loved staying with Carolina and Jason that much that I even extended my stay. AirBnB at it's best!

  • I've had a great stay in Jasons and Carolinas Appartment in Mountain View! Everything was clean and cosy, nice contact.
    Nothing to complain about..
