About Rima and Murthy Nemali
We are husband and wife who have lived here since 2009. I am an engineer employed in Hi-Tech here in Silicon Valley while my wife is a counselor employed at a local university. Originally from India, we have now been in the U.S for more than 35 years and have lived all over the western US including Puyallup, Washington; Colorado Springs, Colorado, Phoenix, Arizona; Folsom, California before finally settling in San Jose, California. We love traveling ourselves, having covered all 50 states, 7 continents, and about half way through our goal of seeing 100 countries! We love history, the movies and a good book for those lazy summer or cold winter days.

Why Rima and Murthy Nemali chose San Jose
We fell in love with its location in a beautiful, residential neighborhood as well as it's close proximity to shopping, restaurants, movie theaters, stores and malls all within 5 min walking distance.Its central location, with easy freeway access also means very easy commutes to major silicon valley employers, universities, colleges and local attractions. There is also incredible hiking within 5 miles. All in all this to us is paradise on earth!

This property deserves high marks!
I would highly recommend this apartment! It was absolutely perfect for my husband, daughter and me when we recently spent a week in San Jose. The home is in a quiet neighborhood but has easy access to many nice restaurants and amenities. We traveled around a bit during our stay but thought the location was quite convenient for our day trips!
The kitchen and bathroom came fully furnished with everything a guest might need. (Thank you Rima and Murthy!) Parking on the street was easy, and we had no issues with check-in. Everything in the apartment seemed new and in great condition. I enjoyed all the windows which brought in lots of sunlight during the day, but also allowed us to enjoy the fresh, cool air at night. (There is AC in the unit, but with ceiling fans in the bedroom and living areas, we hardly needed it all week.)
The owners have thoughtfully considered all aspects of this rental and it shows. The apartment fully met our needs and expectations, and we look forward to visiting again!
Comfortable and Welcoming
We stayed in this rental home for seven nights while we were in San Jose to visit our son and his family. It was wonderful to return to this cozy, comfortable, and welcoming home away from home every evening. The decor is pleasant and the kitchen was well supplied with all we needed for preparing breakfast, including food items in the cabinets and refrigerator. The owners are so gracious and thoughtful. Thank you, Rima and Murthy, for sharing your beautiful home with us!
Central neighborhood Oasis
A generous suite with all the amenities and attentive hosts! Close to town and very walkable/bikable neighborhood to shopping, services and food. I could totally live here it made me feel so at home. The only thing I didn't quite get used to was the very firm mattress but I'm sure it was good for my back.
Thank you very much Lis! We are glad you liked the place enough to practically consider it home! We are really touched! You were an outstanding guest and it seemed you hardly stayed here! Thank you for following all the rules and taking such good care of the place. And thank you for the feedback on the mattress. When we initially set up this unit we put a lot of thought into every item of furniture we bought for the place. And the most thought went into picking the mattress. Given the plethora of choices we finally decided to pick a middle of the road firmness tending just a bit towards extra firmness. And we totally understand how it can take some getting used to for a few of our guests. We do hope you will come back to stay with us in the future and at that time we will definitely make arrangements to take care of this. Trust you had a safe trip back home!

Can I leave 5++++ stars?
This place was FANTASTIC! I loved the amenities and the neighborhood was super quite. Within walking distance is a Trader Joe's and parking was also easy on the street. I also had a delayed flight and was welcome to stay a bit later, although I didn't need to. However the offer was appreciated.
Thank you so much for your kind feedback Mike. We are really honored that you loved the place and the neighborhood. We always strive very hard to ensure the comfort and convenience of our guests and when it is acknowledged in our guests' feedback, we are motivated to do even better! We are also very glad you liked the neighborhood a lot, we can't say enough about the conveniences and wide variety of establishments, all within a very short walking distance. As guests, you & your party were outstanding, leaving the place very clean and taking care of it as though your own. As long as there is no other guest checking in later the same day, we will always be flexible on the checkout times . We would love to have you back for next year's convention, and since we've now opened up long term booking you are welcome to book anytime! Hope to see you back here in the future!

The Comforts of Home
Located in a quiet neighborhood near the intersection of the cities of San Jose and Saratoga, with shops, restaurants and a Starbucks within walking distance, this unit provided safe and comfortable lodging. With a private entrance of its own, the unit is a separate part of a suburban home. The hosts have gone out of their way to consider a traveler’s every need and comfort. They have helpfully labeled the content of every cabinet and drawer, eliminating the necessary scavenger hunt that too often typifies such rentals. The front room has a casual seating area with TV, an ample sized, well-equipped kitchen, and an adjacent bathroom with two sinks and a walk-in shower. There is a TV and a Queen bed in the bedroom, which has a door that can be closed for separate space. Thoughtful, easy and accommodating; happy to recommend!
Thank you very much for your kind feedback Peter! Our primary goal is the comfort and well being of our guests, and ensuring they have an outstanding experience for which we spare no effort. When that is appreciated, it truly makes our day and motivates us to do even better the next time. You and your wife were exemplary guests and we would love to have you back anytime! Thank you also for your very thoughtful suggestions which we have implemented and will implement soon! All the best!
The Best in Every Way!
The owners, Rima and Murthy thought of everything when preparing for guests. The space was immaculate and well designed with large windows, plentiful amenities and helpful labels on the lights and cabinets. My husband and I arrived exhausted and much later than expected (in the middle of the night) due to our delayed flight from the East Coast. Rima and Murthy made sure the outside and inside lights were on for us which made our arrival less stressful than we anticipated. The kitchen was filled with cereal, bread, granola bars and other packaged foods and the fridge had milk, OJ, eggs, cheese and more. All of this was very comforting and much appreciated.
The location of the attached house was excellent, close to shopping, restaurants, major highways, the airport and in a neighborhood well suited for taking long walks.
Sadly, we had to cut our vacation short due to the sudden death of a close friend back home. We notified Rima and Murthy that we would have to leave a week earlier than planned and they were so understanding, comforting and helpful when arranging for our early departure.
We plan to return to San Jose in the future and will definitely want to stay in this wonderful home again.
Thank you so much Meryl & Alan for your very kind words which we greatly appreciate! You were our most delightful guests and we truly enjoyed meeting you, getting to know you and having our very stimulating conversations! We loved every minute of your stay with us and are grateful for your patience, understanding and humor in coping with some of the sudden and unexpected glitches that occurred. Your keen insights and valuable suggestions are something we are working hard to implement and hope to complete shortly. We also got to see what wonderful human beings you both are and that we will always cherish. We definitely look forward to having you come back and stay with us - hopefully in the very near future! Good luck and all the very best to you!
