Yes, we are a one minute walk to the Railway station.

Layla and Antoine are welcoming hosts. The room and the private bath were both very clean. The kitchen and dining are inviting. You can't beat the location, it's close to freeways, light rail, and town. The Stevens Creek Trail is less than a mile away.
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.
We had a great 10 days staying with Layla and Antoine. The house is beautiful and clean, the location convenient, and the hosts exceptionally friendly. Definitely recommended.
I stayed here longer term for work in the summer and the location was very convenient. It was only about a 15-20 minute bike ride to work and 10 minutes to Castro Street, where there's a lot of nice restaurants and the Caltrain. There's also a lightrail if you don't have a bike.
The room is just like the pictures and the decor of the whole house feels clean and modern but still inviting. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating. I'm more of a shy, quiet person, so they let me be, but if you're more outgoing you'll love their company. They're also really good cooks if you have a chance to try their food.
There's also a maid service that comes weekly if you're staying more than a week, which was convenient. And there's also a neighborhood pool that looked nice and well kept but I never tried it.
My only complaint is the neighborhood layout is a bit confusing like a maze so it was hard for Uber/Lyft drivers to find the house and hard for me while on bike at night the first few times. This is no fault of the hosts though, of course, and Uber had no problem when I walked out of the neighborhood first.
Layla and Antoine were very attentive and great hosts. The place was as advertised, which is fantastic. Highly recommended.
Layla and Antoine's house is super clean. They are very nice and welcoming. I enjoyed my stay there a lot.
Layla + Antoine were awesome hosts. They're both very smart and their daughter is a cool little girl who is going to be quad-lingual! Their home was 3 minutes away from where I needed to be so it was quite convenient. I had a great conversation with Antoine about technology and his work - I learned a lot from him in the short time I was in town. Their home was clean, very welcoming, and they made a nice breakfast for me. Oh and ask them if they have Organo Gold Latte - that's some good stuff!
