About Peter Wurr

I have been managing this property since 2003. Before that, I was helping my Dad maintain it while attending school in the area. Our objective has always been to have the best property around. We've made an enormous number of improvements to this building and grounds over the past 4 decades and it really shows.

Peter Wurr purchased this apartment in 1974

Why Peter Wurr chose San Jose

The location is perfect for someone (or a couple) who want or need to visit the area and want a more home-like environment with a fully functioning kitchen. The unit is cool in summer and cozy warm in the winter. It's almost always a lovely day in San Jose. The complex has a pool and a small fitness center. It also has a beautiful outdoor picnic style courtyard with built-in swimming pool. There's on-site coin operated laundry too.

What makes this apartment unique

Westgate Shopping Center is across the street from this location. If you don't drive or don't want to drive, you can find everything you need within a short walk of this rental.

Great place to stay in the heart of Silicon Valley

  • 5 of 5

to be honest, the apartment complex is not that great looking, so we had some trepidation when we pulled up, but the apartment managers were very nice, and when they let us into the place, we were very pleasantly surprised. The entire apartment has been very recently redone. Every room looks great, with new appliances in the kitchen, a big screen TV on the wall, and a beautiful modern bathroom. The apartment is nice, but the location is the big winner. My wife was left without a car during the days when I was at work, but this was no problem as the apartment is right across the street from a mall and within 5 minutes walk of many restaurants and stores. The fact that the covered parking space was inside gates was great, too.

The only drawback to the apartment was that we visited during a significant heat wave. The one little air conditioner in the front room had a hard time keeping up. However the mornings were beautiful. One could wish for higher performance WiFi, too...but this is always the case.

We highly recommend this apartment if you are visiting Silicon Valley to work anywhere from South San Jose up to Palo Alto.

Clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This property was clean and nicely furnished. The mangers were nice and took the time to show us the property. They were quick to respond to any issues I had. Shopping is just across the street, walk friendly area, easy access to the highway. Great location and great place. Will stay there again.

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had come to San Jose to visit with our daughter and son in law and needed the perfect place that would cover all of our needs for our stay. This space was perfect! Clean, spacious and everything you could possibly need was available. Kitchen was equipped for full meal cooking and bath and bedroom with plenty of linens and supplies . We felt safe and our car was in a secure parking lot as well. Faye and her father were very friendly and helpful. The area outside our door was very beautiful and people friendly. We were able to walk to all our shopping needs, which was a bonus for us. Would definitely return!

I was sad to leave this beautiful place. It's modern, clean, has a very comfy bed & pillows.

  • 5 of 5

I wish I could live there! I enjoyed my stay. The apartment was remodeled and everything is modern and new. I like the art work and decor. The bed is so comfortable and so were the pillows and white duvet. The white towels are so soft and look brand new. Everything was very clean, too. The kitchen has everything you would need and more. Including salt, pepper, sugar packages, soap, etc. And, they provided shampoo, conditioner, dove soap, dish soap, laundry detergent, lots of TP, paper towels, tissues, etc. The condo I stayed in (unit 18) is right by the pool. In fact, you walk out the sliding glass door and there is the pool. The pictures don't do this place justice. And, the managers are so very sweet and helpful. I will be staying here next year!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a week and a half and enjoyed it so much that I had to extend my stay! Came here for work, and this place was just as nice as it looks in the photos (if not nicer). Very comfortable feel, doesn't feel like a rental or a hotel room, and the on-site management was beyond friendly and helpful!

I'd highly recommend this place for anybody visiting this area, especially if you are coming here for work and you want a warm "homey" feel rather than renting a hotel. Owner was also very responsive and accommodating.
