About Gerry and Jeanne

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

Why Gerry and Jeanne chose Palo Alto

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.

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 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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

Great place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
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.

Owner's Response: Hi Jake, thanks for staying with us and leaving us the gift of the New Belgium beer that we loved. It was a pleasure meeting you and your colleagues and I'm glad you loved the proximity of the house to parks and groceries.

Great Place to Stay in the Valley

  • 5 of 5
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!

Wonderful property and fantastic owners

  • 5 of 5
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.

Owner's Response: Lesley, it was very much a pleasure hosting you. It was a funny coincidence that I was in London when you booked the property... even funnier that we drove through your town just outside of London. Thanks for taking wonderful care of the house. Look forward to seeing you and your family again!

Immaculate Home - Wonderful Hosts!

  • 5 of 5
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!!!
