About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

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.

Enjoy your stay!

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

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.

This house was exactly as described. Very clean and functional. My wife and I stayed here with another couple for 5 nights and it worked very well for us. Russell was great.

Comfortable San Jose Stay

  • 5 of 5

My parents and brother had a wonderful stay at this location! The house is very clean, quiet, and comfortable. It met all their needs. The location is a minute from the highway and close to restaurants and grocery stores. Russell was easy to reach and accommodating; the setup of the house for VRBO stays was well thought through for a very homely stay! :) My family will definitely stay here again in the future and recommend!

This house is clean and comfortable and close to everything! Russell was very helpful and nice to work with. (The beds are firm, and I have a fused back so they were too firm for me) probably not a problem for most people.

Nice, clean, and welcoming home !!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a this property during the week of 3/3-3/7/17. During our time staying there we got the chance to meet Mr. Gilbert, the home owner who was so nice and so helpful to us. His property is very clean, neat, and well organized. The area is quiet and close to SJ airport. There are lots of restaurants and shops within proximity of 15 minutes driving too. I remembered we came late in the evening and were concerned if we had to find grocery store in the area to buy few items like tea, coffee, water, etc... Well, Mr. Gilbert was so thoughtful to stock up some of those items for us to use. He texted us to check if we're fine or if we have any questions. The check out procedure is simple and quick. I am highly recommend this property to any family who would like to have a warm feeling of the home environment while traveling away from home. Thank you Russell for your kindness and hospitality. We will definitely stay at your place again next time when we are in the area.
