Beautifully furnished in a Pottery Barn-like style with special attention paid to exclusive extras including high-speed cable, Wi-Fi, and a 50” HDTV. The open kitchen with stylized wood cabinetry, beautiful granite countertops and quality appliances including a side-by-side refrigerator to fill with grocery favorites and a Bosch dishwasher for easy cleanup.

A laundry area and two-car garage are included as well. The neighborhood is quiet and welcoming. Less than two blocks walk away, is a neighborhood park, complete with tennis courts.

Santa Clara is the heart of Silicon Valley. A gateway to many world renowned technology companies such as Yahoo!, Intel, Apple, Google, HP, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Cisco, Facebook, Palo Alto Networks and major event centers such as Levi’s Stadium, the San Jose Shark Tank- SAP Center and the new Home of the Earthquakes - Avaya Stadium. Located right off of Highway 101, very near the San Jose International Airport (SJC) and connected to Highways 680, 880 and 280. There are many iconic and historic areas and experiences to be found in nearby Mountain View, Palo Alto, Los Gatos and Santa Cruz. San Francisco is a straight shot North about 45 minutes and important California universities including Santa Clara University, Stanford and San Jose State University, surround the area. https://visitsantaclara.wordpress.com

About Teresa

I was born and raised in California, as were my children. The weather, opportunities and the variety of things do is what I love about Santa Clara.

After 25 years of management in the technology industry, I converted our long-term rental property into a vacation rental. My mother and sister also have vacation rental properties, so we are able to share best hosting practices with each other from coast to coast.

Creating a 'home' away from home, and sharing our favorites for others to enjoy has become a family passion that I share with my husband, parents, sister and children.

Teresa purchased this house in 1995

Why Teresa chose San Francisco Bay Area

This is the perfect home base for family visits, work, sports fans, medical needs, adventure and entertainment. The house is spotlessly clean and spacious with a private patio and large yard with garden. It is located in a quiet neighborhood and very close to major entertainment/sporting events, medical care and education for all ages.

Santa Clara is cooled by a gentle breeze from the San Francisco Bay during summer afternoons, and the area has a relatively mild winters.

What makes this house unique

This three bedroom, single family home has a wonderful, private fenced back yard and covered patio. It provides a haven of rest in the heart of Silicon Valley and a bike ride to the Apple Campus. The house is more affordable than a 5* hotel, more private than an apartment, more spacious than a condo, more central than most other options and, it's very convenient!

Great stay, great owner!

We had a wonderful stay in Teresa's home. Everything was clean and ready for us when we arrived. The instructions to access the home, keys etc. were clear making our arrival a breeze. Everything we needed was provided plus more. All five of us would highly recommend this home as a vacation rental. And Teresa was great to work with, providing fast communication whenever we had questions. Definitely 5 stars!!

very nice house

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 5 nights with my family. The neighborhood is very nice and safe. The house itself is very spacious and can easily fit seven people. The parking is great. There is enough cooking gear in the kitchen but you can bring a good non-stick pan if you want. There is tons of toys in the house which is a huge plus if you are traveling with a toddler. The dishwasher and washer dryer are new and work very well. Overall it was a very nice stay.

Perfect home away!

  • 5 of 5

This home is the perfect home away! It is a very comfortable home in a quite neighborhood and close to everything we needed: Levi's stadium, grocery store, park and good restaurants. The patio and back yard adds another comfortable sitting area as well. The owner communicates well and offers helpful suggestions. This home made our time in Santa Clara very enjoyable.

It was a nice house overall! The outdoor sitting area was nice.

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home for a few of my family members that came into town for my mom's surprise party. The three families came from the Sacramento and Hawaii areas and they were impressed. They said it was a good stay in a quiet neighborhood.

Teresa was really good about communication and it was nice to know she would respond if I had any questions or concerns.

Overall, it was a nice home and things couldn't have gone any smoother.

Room to relax and central location

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed when I called the number provided during the search process and spoke directly with the owner! Immediately, I felt comfortable with the property, location and excellent service. We spoke and emailed other times with quick responses to all questions. It was a special weekend attending a wedding in Saratoga Springs and so wonderful to have a place to relax in the evening with friends and a table to gather around for morning coffee, inside or on the porch. Everything we needed was provided and we thank you for sharing this property with us.
