We are a family of four living in Palo Alto, 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 8 and 10 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 2013
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 tranquility, beauty, and safe neighborhood with all the places we shop often within a 5 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.
Ultimately, however, we bought this as an investment for our children. The house is located in the Los Altos High School district which was rated one of the top High Schools in the country! We plan on moving into this property in a few years.
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 5 miles. 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 Palo Alto and Mountain View have to offer!
Perfection. That's the experience Gerry ad Jeanne provide. Quite simply, the best Airbnb experience I have ever had. And that's based on over two years of bookings. We will be back very soon!
I had the pleasure of staying in two of Gerry's houses (Santa Clara and Mountain View). Both experiences were excellent. The houses are in great condition and include pretty much everything you could need for a short, or in our case, extended stays. Both locations were very nice—easy access to major highways, grocery stores, and shopping. The best part, however, was the hospitality provided by Gerry. Communication was never an issue. Any problems were solved promptly, and he always made sure the houses were stocked with the necessities. I'd recommend staying at any of Gerry's properties—you won't be disappointed.
This home is perfect. It's new, very comfortable and clean and has all the amenities you can think of. Located in a very quiet place, it is walking distance to parks, shopping and San Antonio caltrain station. Owners are very attentive to details. Gerry is super friendly and did everything to make us feel like home. Thank you Gerry for your great hospitality! We loved our stay here and are looking forward to coming back.
The home is really nice. We stayed for business as many of the hotels were booked and very expensive due to a conference in town. The experience was far better than staying at a hotel and we had lots of room to stretch out. The surrounding neighborhood is great and walking distance to parks and shopping. Great hospitality.
Very nice home with all the amenities you could ever need, a gracious host who took care of all the little things, and a superb location in the Mountain View/Palo Alto area. We were two families with some little ones who spent a week here for a reunion and were able to use the house as our launching pad up to SF, out to Monterey, and into the Redwood Forests. Was great to return home every evening to this well appointed and comfortable home. Thanks Gerry for all your hospitality!
We have no hesitation in giving this property five stars and we would give it more if that were possible. It is extremely well furnished and is equipped to a very high level. The property was well cleaned and maintained. Basic essentials such as kitchen roll, dishwasher detergent etc were provided which made it easy to just walk in and begin our holiday. The extra factor that makes this rental unique was the input of the owners. We arrived in Mountain View at 9.30pm after a long journey from London which was marred by delays. Gerry met us at the property and then took us to the supermarket to buy some groceries since our car hire did not start until the following day. This was greatly appreciated and indicative of the perfectly balanced personal touch we received throughout our stay. Gerry's input was always professional and his manner friendly and not invasive in any way. Without doubt this was our best experience in a rental property.
Gerry and Jeanne are outstanding hosts. The place is spotless and well-kept. From our arrival right through to our departure, everything was smooth. Gerry stopped by to ensure we had everything we needed and that the house was fully stocked on our first day. Our 11 month old son had plenty of space to crawl and run, there were baby gates, lots of children's toys, a rocking chair, and a pack-n-play.
The area is beautiful with a quiet, friendly community within a wealthy neighbourhood. Plenty of parks, schools, restaurants, shopping, and attractions in the area. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a modern, well furnished, safe home in a gorgeous neighbourhood. Everything in the home is brand new - stainless steel appliances, flat screen tv's, hardwood floor. We will definitely be staying here again in the future!!!
