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!!

Worked out great for San Jose trip

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for about a week in April 2017 and it worked out very well for my group of 4 adults and 1 toddler. This house is in an excellent quiet location with easy access to the various places we wanted to visit - Big Basin Redwood park, Avaya stadium, Santa Cruz, San Francisco, etc...seemed like the worst of the traffic on the freeways was always going the opposite direction we were, another indication we chose the right place to stay. The park (within easy walking distance) was a very nice one. The kitchen in this house was nice and useful and we were able to make our own breakfast each day. The price was reasonable considering the otherwise incredibly high rental & housing prices in the Bay Area (by my standards, anyway). If/when I visit San Jose again, this rental would be top of my list - thank you!

A great house where you feel right at home

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our 3-week stay at this great house in Sunnyvale. It was perfect for our family of 3 plus 2 grandmas. Our 5-year old was so happy there that sometimes it was hard to persuade her to go anywhere else. She really enjoyed all the toys and children's books available and the nearby park with an amazing playground, and we all enjoyed the backyard and the charming enclosed courtyard, even for stargazing. To sum it all up, we felt right at home and were very sad to leave. The owner was very accommodating when we were arranging our stay, and everything was just like she described. We would definitely return anytime! This house made our vacation perfect. Thank you, Lorraine!

Great place for our family

  • 4 of 5

When we needed housing for a family wedding event, this house was a great place to call home. Initially the house was not ready when we arrived but owner was willing to compensate us for the inconvenience and replied promptly to my call. Property was very spacious with two outdoor spaces and room to spread out inside too. Microwave was confusing to operate so would suggest a quick user guide be posted nearby. AC was a plus for the hot summer weekend. Carpeting is very light colored and would suggest its time for a good shampoo. Quiet neighborhood with easy access to shopping and restaurants.

Spacious house in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We really liked how close this home was to a shopping center. Homeowners were easy to contact when needed and accommodating when we had to return to the home after checkout to retrieve some items we forgot to bring with us. We would definitely stay here again if we're ever in the Mountain View/Sunnyvale area. Thank you!
