Enjoy our tranquil backyard as you watch the hummingbirds fly by. Two giant redwoods and other beautiful vegetation can be enjoyed while sitting around a fire pit or at the outdoor table on the patio . A hidden climbing fort is a great place for kids to play. The front yard has a swing and rings to entertain the kiddos as well.
We're also a short walk to the Steven's Creek Trail, as well as CalTrain (a Baby Bullet train stop to San Francisco and San Jose) and Light Rail. Close to highways CA85, US-101, CA237 and I-280 (although you can't see or hear any of them). Less than 6 miles to Stanford University and Stanford Hospital and less than 2 miles to El Camino Hospital. We are close to Microsoft, Apple, (website hidden), (website hidden), (website hidden), and many more high tech companies!
If you have any issues with check-in and check-out times or any special requests for your arrival, please just let us know. Some friends from the East Coast cannot start a day without Dunkin' Donuts coffee. Not just any coffee, it has to be their brand. Caf or decaf? Soy milk or half-n-half? If you have a request, just let us know and we'll do our best to accommodate you.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Jenn and Andrew
Guests can enjoy the entire private home on a large downtown lot as well as the private backyard with a patio. The garage will remain locked.
We rent our entire property so we will not be staying there at all during our Guest's stay. We try our best to meet the Guest when they move in to show them around and at the end to collect the keys. However, we also have a secure process to exchange keys even when we cannot meet, and we have an easy access book that explains how to operate the theatre system and such. We're always available 24/7 by email, text or phone during your stay. Some guests like to interact a lot, asking for recommendations on restaurants, kid's activities, local outdoor activities, etc. Others we hear from at the beginning and then the end only. Whatever the Guest prefers!
Our home is in the Old Mountain View Neighborhood, just three short blocks from vibrant downtown Castro St. The people of Old Mountain View love their neighborhood and are very proud of it. We think our Guests will love it as well! The tree lined streets and gorgeous palm trees make walking downtown and to the local parks lovely.
No smoking in the house please. No pets in the house or on the property. Our family members have allergies. We remove our shoes at the door but we don't require our Guests to do so. Other than that, please just treat the place with the same respect you would expect from people living in your home and please respect our lovely neighbors.
Hello! We are two fun and quirky love birds who met over 15 years ago at Cornell University in upstate NY. Fast forward 15 years, 3 cross country moves, and 2 children later (9 and 7), and here we are in Mountain View, CA! We love exploring new areas and meeting new people. Jenn enjoys the summers off as a teacher to adventure with our kids. We can't wait to meet you and yours!
