This charming house is fully-equipped and ready for your visit to San Jose. Both bedrooms have queen beds. Full kitchen, off-street and on-street parking. Gorgeous private deck for outdoor living in the fantastic California weather! Washer & dryer.

The Space

A very cute two bedroom, one bath house conveniently located in central San Jose. Tons of vintage charm with clean fresh paint and furnishings. Typical of its era, this house is small (~900 square feet) but has a great layout. Get a great night's sleep on comfortable Serta mattresses.

One unique feature of this house is the 'Jack & Jill' bathroom. The bathroom is located between the two bedrooms, with a door into each one.

Full kitchen, washer/dryer and a small desk/work area as well.

Out back, enjoy California's spectacular weather on a gorgeous private deck.

Interaction with Guests

I will meet you at the house to check you in, and then will be available/on-call if any needs arise. I live just a few miles away.

Getting around

Centrally located near downtown San Jose and within a few blocks of bus routes, and easy freeway access. Approximately 10 minutes from SJC airport. Parking for 2 cars in the driveway, and street parking available as well.

Christmas trip

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I would recommend this property to anyone. Russel is so accommodating and nice. The neighborhood is quite and close to everything. Russel meets you there to show you around and answer questions, the house is clean and very quaint. We loved it and would use it again providing he would have us.

Great San Jose Rental

  • 5 of 5

This little vintage bungalow is spotlessly clean and well stocked with nice towels, decent kitchen items and a very comfortable bed. The photos and descriptions are accurate, and host Russell is very gracious and welcoming. The layout is efficient and intimate: ideal for a couple or a small family, or maybe two good friends. We were attending a multi-day event at the SAP Center, and the location could not be beat! While I normally reserve 5-stars for deluxe, “oh wow” rentals, Russell’s attention to detail and warm hospitality definitely merit 5 stars!
