About Lorraine Heng

After teaching for thirty+ years, repairing cars, and airplanes, and investing in properties, we have retired to the life 'snow birds'. We travel between our homes, maintaining vacation rentals, visiting family and friends, and, exploring the world. Creating 'home' away from home, and sharing our favorites with others is our new passion. This house, owned by our daughter and her husband, is our latest project.

Lorraine Heng purchased this house in 1995

Why Lorraine Heng chose Santa Clara

Santa Clara is cooled by a gentle breeze from the San Francisco Bay during summer afternoons, and the area has a relatively mild winters. The crime rate is relatively low; the opportunities for employment, education, recreation and medical help abound.

What makes this house unique

This three bedroom, single family home has a wonderful, private, fenced back yard and covered patio. It provides a haven of rest in the heart of Silicon Valley and a bike ride to the Apple Campus. The house is more affordable than a 5* hotel, more private than an apartment, more spacious than a condo, more central than most other options and, it's very convenient!

Great location to Levi Stadium, Nicely remodeled/Clean

  • 4 of 5
Overall, we were VERY satisfied with our stay at this home. The electronic door locks and lock-box made our arrival check-in process quick, easy & EXCELLENT! The updated kitchen & furnishings were very nice. Lots of nice outdoor space too! Spacious 3 bdrms...even had a fold-out mattress in the closet if more "sleepers" were needed. Since this is an older home, our SUV (Yukon) did not fit in the garage (ceiling was to low). Also the water heater (when showering)...temps fluctuated a lot which made for "quick" showers. Also, the internet service was unreliable, especially with more than one user on the service at the same time. Even with these minor issues, we would highly recommend staying at this home. Again, we were attending a football game at Levi Stadium...VERY convenient & easy to get to (4+ miles, less than 10 minutes away). Lots of convenient shopping & grocery stores nearby.

Great stay in Santa Clara

  • 5 of 5
Lovely home in a quiet neighborhood, with all the amenities we needed. Plenty of disposables (paper towels, TP, soap, etc.), very clean and with a beautiful yard. The garage parking for the rental car was a particularly nice bonus.

The house is located on a (relatively) quiet street, but major thoroughfares are close by, making access to area attractions and The City quite easy.

The three bedrooms are adequately sized, and having two bathrooms was great. The kitchen is large and well-equipped, with plenty of pots, pans, dishes and glasses, along with a table and chairs for dining in. The BBQ grill and screened-in patio were perfect for the late summer warm weather. The park located only two blocks away was a treat for our toddler.

The house was clean and prepared for our arrival. The manager's instructions were very clear, even to tired, easily confused travelers. This was a great starting and ending point for our sightseeing, and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Not the best, but not terrible either.

  • 2 of 5
The home is fairly convenient from a location perspective. However, the amenities are not the best. For instance, the water in the shower kept oscillating from VERY cold to VERY hot - presumably because other water sources (e.g. faucets, toilets, shower in other bathroom/kitchen) are being turned on or off. The Internet connection kept getting interrupted. Etc.

Great Location, lots of space, clean and affordable!

  • 5 of 5
This Santa Clara home was well laid out, spacious, and if you're tuned into the traffic pattern, only a 50 min drive to San Fran and 40 min drive to Santa Cruz. Coming from Yosemite and living in cabins and canvas tents, the boys were happy to have their own rooms, a TV, and wifi again. I was happy to have a backyard to read in, a screen porch to have dinners in and a bathroom to myself. (Well, I shared w/ my husband but NOT the kids!) Loraine was very pleasant and happy to answer any questions I had regarding the property, its amenities, and its' location. It sure beat staying in a hotel and I recommend this property to any families interested in day trips to the Fan Fran area.

Wedding in Cupertino

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at shaver drive was great we were there for a wedding in Cupertino, the reception in San Jose so location was great. The house was very clean and fresh. Lorraine is very easy to work with. The only problem that we had was the water pressure; if someone was showering in one bathroom and flushed the toilet the water in the shower would become very hot. Also the kitchen sink faucet had no water pressure.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5
This house is a great place to rent and stay. Comfortable and plenty of space for myself and few family members to stay during my wedding week. Some problems such as inconsistent internet, clogged shower, and ventilation issues but overall was fully furnished, backyard for kids to play in on grass and covered patio to enjoy afternoon lunches and get the breeze without the heat.
