Clean, comfortable, and convenient. Only a few blocks from the Steven's Creek Trail!
Kristen and her family live in a charming little house on a pleasant street just blocks from the action of downtown Mountain View, yet quiet and peacefully situated. They are always welcoming and friendly. The Airbnb cottage is behind their home and has its own entrance and attached bathroom with a very nice shower. You definitely have your own private space. We have stayed with them before and likely will again. We recommend this rental highly.
My office was on Castro and the walk from Kristen's place was under 10 mins. The room & bathroom were private, clean and comfortable. Although I was hardly in the house, the few times I met Kristen, she was very helpful and accommodating.
Overall a very good stay with Kristen. Plenty of room, clean and a very private space. The space was really comfortable and the location in perfect with only short walk to downtown Mountain View. The only downside of this guest house is the lack of wifi.
The reservation was canceled 6 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Kristen and her home were lovely, quiet and hospitable.
Her cottage has wonderful space: there are basically two walls of windows, a simple desk, and a shower with great pressure.
I would suggest the spot for anyone looking for some reprieve and decompression after a busy day in the silicon valley area.
Thanks so much again Kristen.
I am a business traveler who was simply looking (email hidden) to sleep while keeping it local. This did (email hidden) and was as described.
The cottage-style room is in the backyard of the house. It has a private bathroom and entrance. It is very clean and cozy. The bed was comfortable. It even has a heater, which was very helpful during these cold days. The host was great to spent extra effort to solve my booking problems. The only thing I could think to improve would be to add wifi to the place. I had to work late in the office in order to make sure my work is completely done before going home.
This is a nice little guest suite that I stayed at for a week just after moving to the Bay Area. Overall, a pleasant experience. Kristen was a very accommodating and friendly host, a pleasure to interact with.
Pluses: great location (two blocks from Castro, close to CA-237). Let me re-emphasize the great location; maybe I'm speaking from someone that was until then staying in large Sunnyvale hotels, unable to walk anywhere. It was also very clean and nicely comfortable. The yard seemed fine, but it was getting cold by this part of the year so I didn't spend any time there.
Minuses: the futon was OK for comfort, not great. I was staying there in November and it felt pretty drafty, though the heater helped. The two biggest minuses for me are nothing to the fault of Kristen or the place, as it was as advertised, but I came to realize how important kitchen access and wifi are for extended stays. In the future, I'll opt for places with this.
Very convenient yet private location in Mountain View. Walking distance to all the attractions on Castro street, easy to get to major roads. The room was clean and equipped with everything I needed during my stay. If you're staying during winter months, make sure to ask how to operate the heater.
