We both love to travel and enjoy dining out and any new experiences. Now that we have 2 young kids, we've slowed down a little on both these fronts, but we still get out when we can (we just got back from a trip to Costa Rica!).

Kelly and Martin are so sweet and generous. Their home is clean and smells great. The guest bed is SO comfortable, with a plush mattress topper and super soft sheets. Great shower. Their animals are SO cool, and their kids are adorable. A great place to call home for a night or a few. Very good A+ would stay again.
Martin and Kelly's home was everything we hoped it would be. The bed was extremely comfortable. The amenities such as the bathroom and shower were clean and an almost spa-like atmosphere.
Martin and Kelly are great hosts who went out of their way to make sure we felt welcomed. They have very friendly and lovable dogs. I would highly recommend staying at their place and would easily stay there again the next time I was in the area.
Kelly and Martin are great hosts - welcoming and friendly. The bedroom is comfortable (very comfy bed), well lit for reading, and provides plenty of space for two guests. The bathroom is also spacious, and the shower is great! The house location - up in the Santa Cruz mountains outside of Los Gatos - is beautiful, and an easy drive into Los Gatos.
This place was clean, cozy, and ideally located. It felt very isolated but is only 5 minutes (or less) from the highway.
Kelly was very nice accommodating, as was her massive Great Dane.
The patio off the room is quite charming although we did not use it.
I would have to agree with the previous reviews stating that one could hear all of the little footsteps of their children on the floor above the bedroom. However, that did not bother us at all because we have children of our own. I would sat it is no different than the morning rush in a hotel.
I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
The Buhr family was simply awesome! They are very welcoming and opened their home to me like I was one of their own. The room and bathroom are very nice. The bed is super comfortable. Their dogs are simply awesome and gigantic. The location of the house is very close to 17 and it is easy to get anywhere in Santa Cruz mountains. My only complaint was sometimes the Buhr's little ones got a bit rowdy. The room is beneath their living room so you can hear them as they play their games. I love children so it really didn't bother me.
This is a gorgeous property! Kelly was very sweet and greeted us upon arrival. She introduced us to her two large, but very gentle dogs, and showed us to our room. The room was very cute and had its own private entrance with charming little patio. The bathroom was out in the hall, not connected to the bedroom. Kelly & Martin's home was great for our short two day stay, and close to everything we needed to get to while we were visiting San Jose. Note that they do have small children and the room you stay in is on the bottom floor of the house so you tend to be able to hear just about everything going on above you. Perfect if you're just looking for a place to sleep at night and explore the area during the day!
Staying in Kelly and Martin's guest room was like visiting a spa in a family environment. Very very nice, peaceful, clean. They have beautiful big dogs, so I got a dose of dog love too. Warmly recommended, and I am sure I will return if the need shows up again!
Great location close to San Jose metro but up in the redwoods in a peaceful setting. The room and bath are very comfortable, and Kelly and Martin are warm, welcoming hosts. There is a wonderful positive energy in this family's great home. We enjoyed our stay very much and hope to return.
Kelly and Martin's family is so lovely. We had a great experience staying with them over the weekend. First, we arrived a little late around 9pm and they were so accommodating around our check in time. They even offered us some dinner that they had left from that night. Next morning Martin made delicious french toasts and we had a wonderful breakfast together with the entire family. It was so fun and we definitely felt like part of the family. Their 3 year old son, Zander, is a total sweetheart and would make anyone laugh. They also have 2 gorgeous dogs that love people. I am usually allergic to dogs, but these two were so cute that I couldn't hold myself back and play with them a little bit.
The house itself is on the hill right off the highway, but you don't hear or smell any cars. You feel like you are in the middle of the woods with humming birds flying around and baby dears running right by :)
The room is downstairs and very private. It was clean and the bed was very comfortable.
Overall, lovely place, amazing people, perfect location!
Everything great, nothing to complain :) Kelly and Martin were very helpful with everything (they even gave us their little sched in the garden to set up a temporary office there). They could not be home when we arrived and arranged everything upfront with neighbors so our move-in was smooth. Communication and responsiveness was excellent, before and during our stay.
The two dogs are such good dogs, "they don't even know they have teeth". So if you consider moving here, don't worry about the dogs. They perfectly got along with the two little kids and they even got along with our little dog. Even though our dog was looking for problems all the time they just ignored her.
The house is in the mountains right between Los Gatos and Santa Cruz. It is half mile from highway 17 and up a mountain, so there is no noise from the cars, but it's still close enough so that reaching either side of the mountains is a matter of minutes. If you have a car, the location is the ideal combination of living in a totally safe place in a beautiful natural setting, but with the convenience of being able to drive to the beach or The Valley within minutes. The house is on a cleared lot, so despite being in a redwood forest, there is lots of sun.
The house is clean with everything intact and the room is newly renovated with a good high-quality mattress. Even though the bathroom is across the hallway, there is enough privacy as the room is downstairs and the rest of the family is mainly using the area upstairs. The internet is much faster than what we would have expected, as Kelly and Martin have a point-to-point connection down to the valley.
We had a great time, would definitely rent again and can recommend this place. (Although not on airbnb, but we have a lot of travel experience as we are always on the road, and this definitely was one of the very good experiences.)
Martin was a wonderful guest for his short stay! He was so clean and tidy, very respectful of the apartment and very easy to communicate with during booking. We would happily rent to him again anytime he's in Seattle!
Kelly and her family recently rented my San Diego condo and they were kind and thoughtful guests who were very easy to communicate with and who left the place in excellent condition. Highly recommend. Thanks Kelly! You are welcome back any time!
