Overview

San Jose Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This guest house is truly your 'home away from home' and is centrally located to all Northern California has to offer. It is three miles from Downtown Los Gatos and resides on a five-acre property in a lovely country setting. After a full day of touring you can come back to lounge by the pool, have a swim, take a spa or just relax.

Los Gatos is a town in Northern California nestled in the foothills west of San Jose and has a wonderful downtown area with many restaurants and shops. The town prides itself on retaining its 'early California' feel with many of its original Craftsman and Victorian-style homes. There are many walking, hiking, and biking trails right at your doorstep as well as in and around town.

The guest house was built and designed with every comfort in mind. There is a full kitchen with stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator, and dishwasher. The dining table seats four and up to eight people when expanded. There is a television with DirecTV, DVD Player, VCR along with a Stereo with CD player. It is 650 square feet that 'live big' with 17 foot high ceilings. It has beautiful hardwood floors throughout and lots of glass to take in the beautiful California Oaks on the property... We've had some guest say with the shades up they feel like they are in a big tree house!

The guest house is a freestanding unit that sits over the garage & is connected to the owner's main house by a breezeway, The property itself is 5 wooded acres with a barn & corral, The guest house is 'California Lodge' style & is comfortably furnished, very 'Pottery Barn'. All bed linens and towels are provided. The Guest house has a Full Kitchen with Dining adjacent to Living Area, First Bedroom with Queen bed, Second Bedroom with 2 twins & Full Bath with shower (Pool Bathroom is available downstairs as a secondary Bathroom), Front door of guest house leads to a private deck with outdoor table & chairs that overlook the pool.

Kid and Pet friendly, you will be within walking distance to many hiking/biking trails, Bel Gatos Park and numerous parks where pets are welcome. Will provide additional pictures of guest house & property upon request.

With this central location you are 3 miles to San Jose, 25 miles to Santa Cruz, 70 miles to Monterey & Carmel, 55 miles to San Francisco and 19 miles to Levi Stadium. The local area has much to offer, Villa Montalvo in Monte Sereno & The Mountain Winery in Saratoga has its concert series which run spring through fall, There are many local area wineries which are open for tours & tasting such as David Bruce, Cinnabar, Kathryn Kennedy & Testarossa to name a few, Our local redwoods are just over the hill at Big Basin State Park as well as the ocean, beach & Beach Boardwalk in Santa Cruz, Located just 15 miles from San Jose International & 43 miles from San Francisco International.

The Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Guest House while visiting our daughter in California. The Guest House was stocked with everything we needed and Kim was wonderful to work with and so accommodating! It was relaxing to come home after a day of site-seeing to lounge in the pool or to spend the evenings sitting in the hot tub enjoying the peaceful view. I would highly recommend the Guest House and would definitely stay again when visiting the area.

Great Country Place

  • 5 of 5

Great guest house in the country but in the middle of Silicon Valley. House was big enough for the family and our Lab. Loved the pool and horses. Owners where very helpful and friendly. We would visit again any time.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

All the facilities we needed and excellent hosts! We stayed in the Pool house for just over a month as we were relocating to the Bay Area. We turned up with suitcases and the property had everything. The kids were in the pool for hours daily and loved feeding the horses and exploring the garden. Absolutely recommend!

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place, it was beautiful, clean, stylish, and relaxing. We came to the area because I was having surgery, and the space was a comfortable place to recover. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the pool, and we all enjoyed the patio and outdoor space. Kim and Ed were conscientious hosts, and were helpful with anything we needed. I highly recommend.

Renovation Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the pool house for 3 weeks, while our house was being renovated. Kim and Ed let us visit the pool house prior to renting for 3 weeks. It has a great layout with 2 bedrooms with galley kitchen, living room, eating area and bathroom. The ceilings are tall with lots of natural light, so you feel as though there is lots of room. We stayed there with our daughters. We enjoyed the property using the jacuzzi, outdoor grill, playing with the dogs and watching the horses.

Everything that we could possibly need was more than provided, such as towels, toilet paper, paper towels, coffee, and many condiments. The kitchen was fully equipped and functional. Cellular, Wi-Fi and DISH service were excellent. The pool house was well maintained and it felt comfortable to live there for 3 weeks.

We would highly recommend as a get away, a place for relatives to stay if visiting in the Almaden/Los Gatos area, or if your house is being renovated. We felt blessed to have found such a fabulous house, while ours was being renovated. Also, it is conveniently located to shopping and freeways. Kim and Ed were friendly and wonderful hosts; just a great family.
