About Lorraine

This has been our primary home for many years. I was a teacher in Sunnyvale for thirty four years, and my husband had an automotive repair business. We are retired now, and like to travel. When we are away, our fully furnished, well equipped three bedroom/two bath single family dream home is rented to others. Our daughter lives directly across the street, and serves as hostess in our absence. We appreciate doing business with our guests and love having a home to come back too.

Lorraine purchased this house in 1998

Why Lorraine chose Sunnyvale

We like the climate and the location. The house is center of a 35 mile radius extending to San Francisco, The Pacific Coast, Montery Bay and the CA redwood forests. Sunnyvale is cooled by a gentle breeze from the San Francisco Bay in the afternoons. It is a short bike ride to the wet lands, and a very short walk to the neighborhood park or other local favorites like Starbucks, Trader Joes, Borders, a work out room, and swimming at the 24 Hour Nautilus or the public library.

What makes this house unique

Because of its central location, play can be easily combined with work, school, family and medical needs. The house is within a three mile radius of Apple, HP, Intel, Yahoo, IBM, Micro Soft, Symantec, Netflix, Moffet Field, Kaiser and El Camino Hospitals and the University of Santa Clara.. It is only nine miles from Stanford Unniversity and San Jose State University.

Bottom line: The house is more affordable than a 5* hotel, more private than an apartment, more spacious than a condo, and more central than most other options.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for your prompt return of our deposit! Everything about the home was wonderful! It doesn’t feel like a rental, it feels like we are staying with friends when we stay there! Thanks again for sharing your home with us! This is a great option for our family, and will most definitely try to rent again, the next time our plans bring us to Sunnyvale!!

This was a lovely house, spacious, comfortable, clean and well equiped. Lorraine was very helpful and visited to see if everything is ok. In short I would have no hesitation in recommending this house to family and friends.

Great place in Sunnyvale!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was close to the grocery store and some good restaurants. We really enjoyed the restaurant/ downtown area in Sunnyvale. It's a great evening hang out place. Hobee's is also highly recommended.

We enjoyed the little "courtyard" in front of the house.

Perfect place for a family!

  • 5 of 5

We chose Lorraine's house to rent while attending a family wedding. The pictures do not do this house justice! It is very spacious, and although it looks a little dated in pictures, is not that way at all in person. It's situated in a gorgeous neighborhood, with an AMAZING park nearby. The courtyard is such a beautiful feature and allows for natural light and privacy at the same time!

We were a family of 8 adults and 2 young children. Lorraine was very accomodating and allowed us to bring our yellow lab, which was fantastic! We were all VERY comfortable the beds are some of the best I've come across in renting vacation homes, we can't say enough great things about our experience!

The only drawback is the BBQ does not work. We bought a fresh tank of gas, and had some very handy people with us, but could not get it to work. Hardly worth deducting a star over though.

House is in a great location. Easy distance to the Redwood Forest. I would stay here every time we go to see our family and highly recommend it!

Wonderful house in lovely quiet neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

We had a 9 night stay her in August 2016. The house suited our holiday wishes perfectly. It's in a nice quiet area. Having stayed for 3 nights in a hotel in SF before coming here, we were glad to not be disturbed by fire engines & rowdy passers-by through the night! We found the house to be lovely and spacious, and very clean. The beds were wonderfully comfortable, and we all slept like logs.

We found that the kitchen had all the equipment we required, and it was nice to have good supermarkets a short stroll away.

We were surprised how much warmer and more pleasant the weather was compared to the city.

During our stay we visited the Great America theme park (only open weekends?), which was only a short drive from the house, and was a great day out with reasonable queues. We also took in a concert at the Shoreline Amphitheatre (near Google), which again was only 20-30 minutes drive from the house. It was fantastic, and our kids' first experience of open-air music - sitting on the grass and just chilling.

If we holiday in San Francisco again, we would definitely try to rent this house

Very nice comfy home

  • 4 of 5

This is a very well maintained home. The courtyard in front was a great place to relax. Kitchen wonderful and plenty of dishes, flatware and cooking supplies. Wifi speeds pretty good. Nice quiet residential neighborhood, beds comfortable. Some minor wear and tear on carpets but very clean. This was a business trip for only two nights and drive to Santa Clara University only about 25 minutes away. Did not need to contact owner and loved not having a house key - entry was by numerical code that was easy to remember. Plenty of restaurants and Safeway close by. Would stay again.
