*** SPECIAL LOWER RATE due to CITY Construction of a new park adjacent to house. Construction is between 7:30am and 4:00pm Monday to Friday only. ***
This is a 5 year old new construction home with 2 levels. There is plenty of space and natural light in the living areas. On the 1st level, there is beautiful hardwood floors throughout the rooms that include a living room, dining room, kitchen, bonus family room, and a powder room. On the 2nd level, there are 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a laundry area.
For those that have severe environmental allergies (like my son), we have taken care to ensure that this is a pet free and smoke free home. We also encase our mattresses and pillows with dust mite + allergen encasings. Throughout the house, we only use all natural seventh generation or other similar organic/natural products.
Now, let's take a tour of the house... Once you arrive at the house, you will see a front porch to the right of the house. The door into the house has a special combo keypad that we set for each guest. This ensures your safety and maximizes your convenience so you never have to worry about losing or forgetting your keys. As a bonus, I let you choose whatever combo you would like.
After you open the front door, you will see a living room that has an inviting sofa to lounge on to your right.. to your left is a 55' Samsung LED Smart TV with quad processor for fast streaming of movies or if you would like you can choose from an abundance of TV channels with our provided premium cable service with Comcast.
As you look past the living room, you will see the dining room with an oversized dining table that can be extended to accommodate 10 people. It sits on top of a luxury decorative mat and is surrounded by 8 leather dining chairs.
As you walk past the living and dining room, you will come to a family room to your left and a kitchen to your right. The family room has a wall mounted 40' Samsung LED TV that sits overtop a gas powered fireplace. There is a comfortable leather sofa, a leather ottoman, and two additional chairs to sit on. The kitchen is well stocked for gourmet chefs. There is stainless steel appliances to use along with an abundance of pots/pans/mixing bowls/cooking utensils, and even baking sheets. There is enough cutlery and plates for 12 people (including wine glasses!).
Beyond the kitchen and family room is a sliding door that leads to a private backyard that adults can sit and relax or children can run around.
Returning back to the front entry of the house, let's continue our tour upstairs. As you ascend the steps to the top, you will be impressed with the view of the dining room and living room to your right.
At the top of the stairs, you will can see all 4 bedrooms, the 2nd bathroom, and the laundry room (so you don't have to carry clothes up/down the stairs for laundry!).
Starting in the Master bedroom, there is a king bed, 2 night stands, dresser drawer that has a 50' Samsung LED TV, a walk-in closet, a little table, and a huge walk in bathroom with dual vanity and shower/tub combo.
In the 2nd bedroom there is a queen bed, 2 night stands, and a working desk.
In the 3rd bedroom there is a queen bed, 2 night stands, and a working desk also.
In the 4th bedroom there are two twin beds and a nightstand.
For business travelers, one of the benefits of having a house rather than 4 individual hotel rooms is that you have the dining and living area to spread out and collaborate with your colleagues. The dining room has an oversized table that will seat 8-10 people. There is also a family room and a living room to spread out even more.
The dining room/living room are joined together with no walls, and we have a brand new Samsung 50' LED TV placed there with premium cable. Beside the TV will be a wireless laser printer that you will be able to use to print things out like maps, documents and boarding passes.
The king and 2 queen beds are Sealy Posturpedic Gel Series that has titanium innersprings and gel memory foam.

About Gerry and Jeanne
We are a family of four living in Los Altos, CA... we have a beautiful brand new home that 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 9 and 11 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.
Gerry and Jeanne purchased this House in 2014
Why Gerry and Jeanne chose Los Altos
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. What has brought us back to Mountain View, is the amazing downtown that is just 10 minutes walk away. There is also the tranquility, beauty, and safe neighborhood with all the places we shop often within a 10 minute drive (Target, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Safeway, Costco, REI, Best Buy, and Bed Bath and Beyond). 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 a 10 minute walk. There is the beauty of downtown Palo Alto and the bustling downtown Mountain View to discover amazing places to eat. We love that you are living an urban area but yet with the calm, tranquility, and beauty that Mountain View, Palo Alto, and Los Altos have to offer!

Sports & Adventure Activities
Spotless, excellent beds and linens! Plenty of room for four adults. All the necessities and more special touches for busy travelers. Gerry was an amazing host!
We will return in the future.
Clean, great location and Jerry and Jeanne are great hosts!
This house is very clean and close to downtown Mountain View, Eagle Park, Palo Alto and Cupertino. Jerry and Jeanne take their job as hosts seriously and are very accommodating to their guests. the house is incredibly clean and hypoallergenic. They are also very responsive if you need anything. The house is very well maintained, but if there is even a small problem, Jerry will be there right away to fix it. There are good restaurants nearby - all of downtown Mountain View plus Tommy Thai, Amber India and other on El Camino. There is air conditioning, which was nice during those hotter August and September days. I would recommend this to locals needing a place to stay for a longer term stay during a remodel (like us), people relocating to the area, overseas visitors and even family.
Excellent lodging in Mountain View
EXCELLENT and fabulous stay for my whole family! Jerry is awesome. The house is very well maintain. It was clean and neat by the time we arrived. The house is clean and cosy, thus, making us feel like we were back home again. Everything was provided without being asked. Jerry stocked enough supplies for the Keurig coffee maker and all the snacks for the kids. The kitchen is well equip with all the utensils. Neat, simple yet comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the living & TV room with the comfy sofa. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean with a nice smell. The bathroom was also clean and the washer and drier were very convenient. Very good details all through the house. The neighbourhood is safe and conveniently located. It just a short drive away from attractions such as Stanford, Palo Alto and Los Alto. Quiet environment at night for a good night sleep. There were good restaurants in the area too. My wife and kids had a wonderful time and absolutely loved this place. We will definitely return to this property when we are visiting Mountain View in the future. It truly was a 5 star experience staying here. Thanks a lot Jerry!
Great location, comfortable accommodation and great host!
I rented this house for my aunt and family (couple with 3 teens) visiting from Malaysia. Great location within 10-min drive from my own house and 5-min drive to Downtown Castro Street for food/farmer's market on Sunday/Caltrain to SF. Gerry and Jeanne made sure the house is clean and well-equipped for a comfortable stay. I did not have to worry about my family not having enough bottled waters, snacks and toiletries especially when they were so jet lagged for the first few days. Located in a very nice and quiet neighborhood. High recommended!
Perfect lodgings in Mountain View
Very helpful and attentive owner. The house was well kept and maintained. All our queries and requests were promptly dealt with and taken care of by Gerry and his maintenance team. The location is excellent, and is a short drive away from attractions such as Stanford, San Jose and Milpitas. Strongly recommended to all, and hopefully one day we will try Gerry's other houses.
