Guestbook comments from the owner
Gerry and Jeanne are the nicest hosts ever! The house is AMAZING, great and super comfortable for holding 4 people. High quality sheets and towels made us feel as if we were in our own home. They were very attentive though all the process, I can recommend them enough!

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.

My life motto: 'Live each day as if it were your last'

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!

BEST OF THE BEST

  • 5 of 5
This is actually a review for Gerry and Jeanne's property in Rivermark, Santa Clara, CA. I was very hesitant and anxious about making my first booking. I had heard from friends about their horror stories of staying at a place where the pictures must have been "airbrushed" and "photoshopped"!
This is truly a luxurious and modern home. The photos of the home do not do it justices as it is even more beautiful and immaculately kept. It encompasses all the amenities of a hotel/resort if not more! There was even a Keurig coffee machine stocked with all varieties of our fav pick me ups! Steps away from Rivermark Village Shopping Plaza where you can walk to places to eat or go grocery shopping at Safeway, the location of the home was perfect. We were able to stroll down to the plaza to eat but the down side was what to pick...there were so many choices! The hosts Gerry and Jeanne were the best. I had many questions. They responded promptly to my inquiries about the properties to put me at ease. Without a doubt, I would book my future stays and recommend to anyone coming into the San Francisco/Silicon Valley area to stay at their property.

Owner's Response: Hi Judy, it was a pleasure meeting both you and your family. Your children are so well behaved. Thank you for taking such great care of the house and leaving the property in pristine condition. I commented to my cleaners that it looked like the place wasn't even lived in after you and your family left. I'm also glad that you were able to enjoy the nearby parks, shopping village, and nearby running trails :). Also, many thanks for referring your cousin to stay at our property. She was also a 'newbie' but your glowing recommendation of us made her feel very comfortable to stay with us. Thanks again!

WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week staying in this house. It is absolutely immaculate, brand new appliances/electronics and super comfortable beds. All of the bathroom and kitchen amenities made us feel really special. They even had snacks and a gift for our kids, they were thrilled! We all really had a great time and the location is great for getting to downtown Mountain View and up to Palo Alto. The owners were really nice, very accommodating, super responsive and a pleasure to meet. We look forward to staying in the house again!

Owner's Response: Gail, it was a pleasure meeting you and your family. Thank you for bringing the delicious plums and peaches from your farm for us. I'm glad that everything worked out well and what a wonderful coincidence that our kids managed to play with your kids at the nearby LaserQuest! Thanks for taking such wonderful care of the house.

BRAND NEW, SUPERBLY KITTED OUT, WONDERFUL HOST

  • 5 of 5
Spacious and great facilities: kitchen is large and has everything you could possibly need. Gerry was an incredibly considerate guest who offered extra help with our child, providing a few extra things that really made our stay a pleasure. Also if you're a Googler, it's close to the Permanente Creek pathway making cycling to work short, safe, and incredibly easy.

Owner's Response: Hi Julian, thank you working your schedule around our dates of availability. We are very booked and I'm so glad that I could meet you and your family. Thanks so much for the tips in London and we look forward to visiting the place. I'm glad that you were able to take the Permanente Creek trail into the Google offices. Believe it or not, it's actually faster to bike to Google than to drive in.

WONDERFUL HOME FOR A FAMILY CELEBRATION!

  • 5 of 5
My family was gathering in CA. for my daughter's wedding and it was suggested we look into renting a home instead of staying at a hotel. I am so thankful we did and I am even more thankful that we found this particular house. From the beginning, Gerry made it so easy to rent and responded to all my questions and requests. The townhouse is in a wonderful area, close to shopping and the CalTRain station. The layout was perfect - we had 7 people staying and we never felt crowded. The home was beautiful and had every amenity we could want. We ended up having two family dinners, and a major planning session for the wedding. Gerry was great and even brought us ice cream one night. Any problem we had was promptly taken care of. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect host or home away from home. I highly recommend any property that Gerry and Jeanne are renting.

Owner's Response: Hi Leslie, thank you very much for staying with us. Your family and extended family members are so friendly. It was very nice of you to invite me to eat the tacos you had made. I can't believe that you managed to pull off the wedding for your daughter. I saw how much work you were putting in up until the last minute. I look forward to having you stay with us again.
