My stay at this place was great. Layla and Antoine were lovely people to stay with, and more than accommodating for our needs. On occasion they would even make breakfast for us when the timing worked out.
The room was comfortable to rest in, and the fan that Antoine prepared for us really helped in the hot climate. I highly recommend staying here.
Layla and Antoine are very nice people and made me feel welcome. The location is great as it's very close to the Central Expressway. I was given the hall bath to use mostly exclusively. Unfortunately the shower wasn't working correctly, so the water was either very hot or ice cold. I used the room's desk everyday. Antoine made me space in the fridge and freezer. I liked the bed but only because I like a firm mattress. I had no assigned parking space but got lucky and was able to use a space at the end of the building.
Layla and Antoine were wonderful hosts right from day one. They made me feel right at home and they are great conversationalists. My stay there was much better than expected and I definitely recommend these hosts to anyone who may be thinking of staying in the area.
Thanks Layla and Antoine!
The owner are very nice, the room is not very roomy, a good place to sleep. The Bathroom is very clean. overall is very good.
Great place to stay and awesome family, Layla and Antoine are super friendly, also the house was in the most convenient location for me since I was working in the near area, if you want to go to the City, there's a station to go to Castro St and then take the caltrain from there.
We loved every day that we spent at Layla and Antoine's place. The house is beautiful and clean and the location is very convenient for people looking to stay in Mountain View. Layla and Antoine went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. I wanted a place that is good for kids as I have a 7 month old and this place was perfect. Layla was kind enough to share her daughter's stuff with my baby and we had some really good conversations over meals together.
The house is beautiful and the hosts exceptionally friendly. Definitely recommended.
