About Cynthia Holiday

I spent my life creating art and traveling the world. My experience in corporate housing and hospitality began in 1993 when I moved to Germany. At the time, I traveled through Europe and the US enjoying a variety of furnished accommodations ranging from plastic sheets, crispy shag carpets, burnt utensils, and yes some cockroaches ..As well as some very charming and homelike accommodations with local flavor.

In 2007, I drew upon my favorite personal experiences as a furnished accommodation guest and I began offering my home to travelers. I designed my home to include my favorite things about staying in unique places which were crisp clean white sheets, cozy soft couches, clean bright kitchen, and most especially local ambiance and collecting unique experiences.. I live close by with My son Ashton ,my partner Glen ,and our giant Maincoon cat, Moonlight.

Cynthia Holiday purchased this apartment in 1999

Nice location

  • 4 of 5

My (adult) parents and I stayed here for a week in January. The location in relation to Downtown Campbell was great. Parking was not a huge issue, as we generally left all day, and after 6pm, when we came back, there was a spot available in front of the house, which we took. If you are coming/going all day long, it may be more of an issue to find parking.

The rental is half of a house (the other half is also a rental). Our side was spacious, the bedrooms not huge but well sized (good size closets to hang clothes, and space on the floor to lay suitcase to unpack). The bathroom wasn't huge, but the water pressure in the shower was great, and water hot! The kitchen had everything we needed (we didn't cook meals, but could have). Coffee was supplied, which was a nice touch.

The downsides for us were two things.

1.) The sound transmission from one side of the house to the other (another review also mentioned this). There is a wall that splits the house in two. The hallway on our rental was to the middle of the house, and I assume the hallway on the other half was also in the middle of the house. Consequently, you could hear footsteps as the other renters walked back and forth along the house. Many times I thought my mother was walking down the hall on our side, only to realize it was sound from the other half of the house. I never heard voices/talking/tv from the other side. Just foot prints/sounds echoing. There were also two mornings that the other renters were doing something (maybe morning calisthenics/burpees/jumping jacks??), and a loud THUD was heard throughout the house, which shook the house. Only lasted about 10 minutes, and was after 8am, so I didn't really feel I could complain. But sound/noises DO transmit through the house.

2.) The other thing we all felt was that our side of the rental seemed dimly lit. It's a Victorian style rental (and victorian style tends to be darker in colors), but the photos online show the place MUCH brighter/lighter than it was during our stay. The light fixtures had dim bulbs in them, and my father even commented that the Dining Room had really poor lighting. The owners had the old fashioned "edison-style" bulbs, which were charming to look at, but were not the most functional at throwing light.

Owner was VERY responsive to any questions I had before arrival. And while I didn't need to get ahold of them during the stay, I think I would have gotten a prompt response if needed.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response. I just wanted to respond quickly to the dim lights and Edison bulbs. One of the challenges I have noticed is that all the lights are on dimmers. Sometimes the dimmers are turned down and to get better light you just need to to turn up the dimmer switches. Also the Edison bulbs are in reality Edison style Led bulbs.

Fantastic location for cruising the downtown restaurants and the duplex unit we rented was gorgeous

  • 4 of 5

Because the duplex walls where paper thin, when people where in the other unit it sounded like they where going to walk right into our bedroom. We are bummed because everything else about the property was awesome
