Enjoy living in downtown Mountain View in the heart of Silicon Valley. It's a beautiful home in a fantastic location for both work and play.
Our home is a 1922 Spanish style bungalow. As our kids outgrew the original house, we added a second story to make it a 1750 sq. ft. 3 bedroom, 2 bath. From the outset, we were determined to preserve the character of the original house.
Every room is filled with period detailing recalling life from a simpler time with the comforts of modern living. The bathrooms feature hand made tile set in Art Deco patterns. New custom cabinets mimic the built-in originals. Refurbished vintage fixtures light the rooms.
Every detail was planned. The house really is a work of art. It's been featured in a magazine and local charity home tour.
It doesn't stop inside the house. It's surrounded by a lovely garden with fruit trees, seven types of custom paving, a trampoline for the kids, a barbeque, and a patio for outdoor dining.
In terms of accommodations, there is a Queen bed in the master bedroom upstairs. The two downstairs rooms are kid's rooms with a single bed each. The sofa downstairs makes into another double bed.
We do have a cat. It has its own door and automatic feeder. You probably will not see it much. Unfortunately we have to say no to dogs.
If you have any special requests with check in, check out or arrival times, please just let us know. If you want soy milk or decaf, we can pick that up for you. We're happy to suggest area activities as well. Let us know what you're interested in.
We look forward to hearing from you.

Entire home with private backyard.
The house will be yours when you arrive. We have a secure way to exchange keys. We should be able to work out any accommodations.
My wife an I were raised in Stockton, California. After I graduated with a degree in computer engineering, we moved to Silicon Valley for work. Currently I'm managing a chip design group for Advanced Micro Devices.
My teenage kids attend local schools and my wife teaches first grade. I volunteer in school related activities.
In my free time, I run far. I run a couple of ultra marathons a year. I also work on our house.
I love living in Silicon Valley. There is great talent here producing myriad technologies that are changing people's lives around the world. It's a beautiful and exciting place.
