“We travel to the Bay Area a fair amount and this is the best rental home we've ever stayed in. The house is spotlessly clean, fresh, comfortable and centrally located. Furnishings and amenities were of good quality. It had everything we needed, including a washing machine and dryer. The Wi-Fi also worked well, which was a plus! We especially enjoyed the beautiful kitchen which was fully equipped with high end appliances and plenty of dishes and cook ware. We took advantage of the seating both in the large family kitchen and patio area. We will definitely plan to return next time we're in the Bay Area.” (Comments from a recent guest.)
Cook in a gourmet kitchen, complete with granite counters and top of the line stainless steel appliances. The large family style kitchen is fully equipped with, dishes, stemware, cookware, even cookie sheets, oils and spices. The kitchen table will easily seat eight.

After teaching for thirty four years, and repairing cars, and airplanes and investing in properties for even longer, we have become 'snow birds'. We travel between our homes, maintaining vacation rentals, visiting grandchildren and exploring the world. Creating 'home' and sharing our favorites with others has become a passion.
Lorraine Heng purchased this house in 1998
We like the climate and the location. The house is center of a 35 mile radius extending to San Francisco, The Pacific Coast, Montery Bay and the CA redwood forests. Sunnyvale is cooled by a gentle breeze from the San Francisco Bay in the afternoons. It is a short bike ride to the wet lands, and a very short walk to Las Palmas Park or other local favorites like Starbucks, Trader Joes, Borders, a work out room, and swimming at the 24 Hour Nautilus or the public library.
Because of its central location, play can be easily combined with work, school, family and medical needs. The house is within a three mile radius of Apple, HP, Intel, Yahoo, IBM, Micro Soft, Symantec, Netflix, Moffet Field, Kaiser and El Camino Hospitals and the University of Santa Clara.. It is only nine miles from Stanford Unniversity and San Jose State University.
Bottom line: The house is more affordable than a 5* hotel, more private than an apartment, more spacious than a condo, and more central than most other options.
Our children enjoyed playing with the doll house and reading the books and playing with the puzzles. Being so close to the park was a lifesaver! Two of the boys had their birthdays during our stay here so we will always have fond memories of our stay.
Enjoyed staying here with family. Good location. Roomy house. Clean overall. The piano in the drawing room can be removed to clear some more space.
We brought our 4 small children and stayed for a week. The house was very accommodating, and Lorraine was great to work with. Great location, quiet neighbors, and the house has everything you need!
The house and location were awesome. The courtyard in front was really nice
Our children enjoyed playing with the doll house, reading the books, and playing with the puzzles. Being so close to the park was a lifesaver! Two of our boys celebrated their birthdays. We will always have fond memories of our time at this Sunnyvale home.
A very comfortable place for me to be near our children. I love the courtyard with the blooming plants. The kitchen is new and the bathrooms are too, This is in a quiet,residential neighborhood and you can sleep with the windows open. It is a great place to have our family for dinner.
This Sunnyvale home is centrally located, well laid out, spacious, and if you're tuned into the traffic pattern, only a 50 min drive to San Fran and 45 min drive to Santa Cruz. We were attending a football game at Levi's Stadium...VERY convenient & easy to get to (4+ miles, less than 20 minutes away). Lots of convenient shopping & grocery stores nearby. Everything about the house was perfect: Clean, well thought out, everything worked properly. The yard and landscaping was beautiful. The house was comfortable and secure, quiet and clean. I wish all rental homes were operated by these homeowners. It certainly beat staying in a hotel. I recommend this property to any families interested in day trips to the San Francisco area!
