About Gerry and Jeanne

We are a family of four living in Los Altos, CA... we have a beautiful new home that we lived in for 8 years and now we rent out to individuals or families that are looking for a place to call home rather than 4 walls in a stuffy hotel. I work nearby in Mountain View as a Partner Technology Manager. My wife looks after our beautiful 2 children 8 and 10 years old. We are both from Toronto Canada and have lived in Silicon Valley for 13 years. If you have any questions about Canada and making the move to the area, we can help!

We are a very active family and love the outdoors. Since I do triathlons, I can share with you the best cycling and running routes in the area. I also love snowboarding, so if you would like to learn the best of what Lake Tahoe ski resorts can offer, I can provide suggestions!

Since both of our children have severe environmental allergies, we believe in whole and healthy living and we strive to eliminate chemicals from our daily living. We eat only Organic foods and use only all Natural cleaning products. I have been a vegetarian for my entire life!

We have travelled extensively throughout United Kingdom, France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Turkey, Italy, Austria, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Canada, and the United States.

My life motto: 'Live each day as if it were your last'

Gerry and Jeanne purchased this house in 2005

Why Gerry and Jeanne chose North San Jose

When we first moved to California in 2000, we lived in Mountain View. Since that time, we have moved to San Jose and Santa Clara. We bought this house because it is in a beautiful, safe, and quite neighborhood that has lots of young professional families that we enjoy spending time with. The school is excellent, the community is excellent, and the Rivermark Shopping Village with the brand new library, restaurants and groceries is just so convenient.

Working in High-Tech, we love the convenience of this centrally located home that is essentially in the heart of Silicon Valley. From this location, it is an easy and fast 'reverse commute' to most companies including Google, Apple, Facebook, Cisco, LinkedIn, VMware.

What makes this house unique

We are a very active family, and we love the proximity to nature trails and bike paths that are within 2 miles. I love biking, running, and swimming, and this area has all of these recreational activities available.

We also love going to restaurants, and their is a very broad range of top dining experiences that are within 5 miles. There is the ethnic Chinese Restaurants in Milpitas, the Japanese, Korean, and Indian ethnic restaurants in Santa Clara, and a variety of restaurants nearby.

We love that you are living an urban area but yet in the heart of Silicon Valley!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was so happy to have booked this beautiful home for my friends and I on our visit back to the Bay Area. The home was immaculate, clean, and comfortable. It was soothing, welcoming, and quiet while being conveniently located near a park, Safeway, public transit and freeways. I also can't say enough about how wonderful our hosts were. Gerry and Jeanne were warm and responsive to our AirBNB request and even helped with advice regarding being in the Bay. There was a football game we weren't aware of at the stadium nearby and Gerry advised us on the best way to deal with traffic which saved us a ton of time getting around. I will absolutely save this listing for possible future booking if I am in the Bay with friends or family again. Thanks so much!

Nice place and location was very convenient.

The property is nice, the location is convenient. The two car garage parking is a must as the street parking is not practical. Enjoyed my stay and will return.

Best property and best owner of the year

  • 5 of 5

Before booking this property, we reserved a place in Milpitas near my parent's home, and we were turned down because of having three young kids. We booked this property near midnight, and Gerry responded right away at night. Gerry tried his best to make our kids to enjoy and to feel comfortable; Gerry had multiple stuff animals and placed the bed rails for both beds. Gerry offered free stay for several days before our arrival and expressed his willingness to meet with my brother/parents in San Jose to plan for our arrival. While he was traveling, Gerry checked on us regularly to make sure that we felt comfortable at home.

The house is clean and cozy near the Levi's stadium. Our kids love to hang out in front of the fire place on the first floor; therefore, we were be able to sleep in the morning without hearing their loud noises from playing. The dinning table is perfect to do some artwork with he kids or to have drinks with friends, and Gerry even left a wine bottle for us to entertain family/friends. The round small table in the kitchen is perfect for 5-6 persons to enjoy home cooking breakfast. Our kids were excited to operate the chocolate/coffee machine. All the beds are comfortable without hearing noises from cars on the street. The property is only 5-10 minutes from a plaza that has the Safeway and different restaurants. It's very convenience for us to make frequent trips to Safeway for the kids. This part of the Santa Clara, near the Mission college, is clean and safe with short distance to the Airport and Milpitas. I would recommend this property to family and friend.

Beautiful home in quiet neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

Best stay on VRBO so far! I stayed here for about a week with a colleague of mine, and it was an absolute dream vacation. We attended the Blockchain expo and NCAA championship game. Both were just a walk down the street! It was a HUGE plus being able to retreat back to this luxury home when we got tired. Also, the owners were very attentative and went above and beyond when I had any questions about the property. I will definitely be staying here again!

Pristine property and thoughtful owner

  • 5 of 5

I visited Santa Clara for a conference and brought along my husband, mother and two kids. Gerry, the owner, was incredibly thoughtful and kind. He stocked the house with baby gates, strollers, pack n plays, toys and even diapers. Gerry was also super responsive. The house was in pristine condition and better in person than in pictures. I highly recommend. Thank you!
