Property description

THE SPACE

This luxurious two-bedroom is a lock-off "in-law unit" in the lower level of the house with private entry. It features a spacious sauna for your exclusive indulgence!

The majestic Autumn Room has a king-size super comfortable Simmons Beautyrest bed. The romantic Spring Room has a full/queen-size bed with Egyptian cotton down blanket.

The spa-like bathroom has a tub and is adjunct to the sauna room. Relax in your private sauna after a day's work and play!

The large family room has a fireplace, TV with cable, and a stereo system. A queen-size sleeper sofa with memory foam mattress can easily accommodate two guests without sacrificing the comfort of sleeping in a bed.

The kitchenette has everything you need for simple cooking. It's equipped with toaster oven, coffee maker, toaster, and electric kettle. A microwave with Inverter technology allows you to cook evenly anything from breakfast to appetizer to dinnertime meals. Guests can also use our outdoor Weber gas grill (with stove) to cook your favorite food while enjoying California weather.

Tab water is drinkable with our state-of-art water purification system.

In the resort-like backyard, a 1000-square-foot deck terrace is nested in redwood and cedar trees. Two fountains, one outside your bedroom windows and another in the backyard, give soothing sound from morning to evening. Immerse in nature's healing energy and just relax and enjoy!

The house is built on a slope such that the upper level of the house (where my husband and I, plus our little dog are living) is at the street level, and the lower of the house (where you will be staying) is at the level of the deck and backyard. Your private entry is located at the side yard. The suite is very quiet and peaceful, but you may hear us upstairs sometimes.

GUEST ACCESS

Your reservation includes:
- welcome snacks with bottled water
- wireless Internet
- complementary coffee and tea
- private Sauna
- olive oil and vinegar, salt and pepper, dishes and utensils in kitchen
- hair dryer, shampoo, shower gel, etc. in bathroom
- laundry facilities, laundry detergent, iron and ironing board in laundry room (shared)

The laundry room is located at lower level of the house. If you stay more than one week, we may need to use laundry facilities, in which case we will coordinate a time that is convenient to you.

INTERACTION WITH GUESTS

We respect your privacy and would not disturb you during your stay, but we would be happy to chat whenever convenient.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD

We are located in a 5-minute walk to downtown Saratoga where you will find top-rated restaurants and boutique coffee shops. The neighborhood is safe and quiet. Air is fresher and cleaner than busier cities such as Sunnyvale, Mountain View, and Palo Alto. Nearby are picturesque hiking trails and biking paths in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

GETTING AROUND

It's best to have a car to get to our house. It is 35 miles south of San Francisco Airport, 18 miles from Stanford University / Palo Alto, and 14 miles from downtown San Jose.

For business travelers, our house is located in less than 5 miles from Apple Headquarters in Cupertino, 10 miles from G00GL and Microsoft in Mountain View, and 5 miles from Netflix headquarters in Los Gatos. Other Silicon Valley companies such as Facebook, Tesla, etc. are all within 20-30 minute drive.

For vacationers, Big Basin Redwood State Park is only 22 miles away. San Francisco, Santa Cruz beach, and Monterey are all within a 45-minute to 1-hour drive. If you want to venture a little further, Big Sur - spectacular west coast - is less than 2 hours, and Yosemite National Park is less than 3.5 hours away.

Whether you are on a business trip or vacation, this is an ideal place to stay as a home away from home.
