A special home

  • 5 of 5

This house is special. It is in a quiet residential neighborhood yet close to the San Jose airport, freeways, stores and restaurants. You feel like you're in a friend's home, not a rental. We found everything we needed, even a well stocked pantry. I agree that Doug provided the best customer service we have ever experienced. He made arrangements with his cleaning crew so we could check in early. There was a framed, personalized welcome letter along with wine, sparkling cider and chocolate truffles. It was helpful to have a computer and printer as well as the BART schedules and area maps. I would definitely stay here again.

A true home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We can't think of anything that was missing to make this our home away from home. The location was fantastic. We travelled into San Francisco using the BART system which was perfect and only a short drive from the home. All the amenities were exactly as described. Our host met us at the home and gave us a warm welcome and walked us through all the must knows to make our vacation stress-free and comfortable. He even called us to make sure everything was ok. This home will be our first choice should we come back to this area. The pictures are a perfect example of what you'll find when you arrive. Thanks Doug, you made our vacation perfect. The home is clean and well-stocked. I would certainly recommend this listing to our friends and relatives. We visited Santa Cruz, Napa Valley, Sausalito, San Francisco, Carmel By the Sea, Monterey. What a perfect week.

It Doesn't Get Any Better!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really love this house! It is honestly like a home to us. It is so clean, well decorated, well equipped, and well supplied. This was a second stay at this home, but not our last. We travel to the San Jose area several times/year to visit family. Doug, our host, provides the best customer service we've ever had. Here is some of what we loved: the welcome note and wine, food in the fridge and pantry, bath and beauty supplies, a make-up mirror, great coffee and coffee maker, plenty of linens, home computer and printer, TV in the master bedroom, generous supply of dishes, utensils, etc., attached garage, fabulous library of books, videos, CDs and magazines...I could go on and on. Thanks, Doug. You are the best!

Best Pace Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED staying here!! It is a wonderful house, with everything we could possibly need. We feel very fortunate that the house was available for the dates that we needed it! Doug is the best host we have ever had the pleasure of renting from. He is so on top of everything and considerate! He met us on our arrival date and gave us a little tour of the place, and there was a welcome note and bottle of wine in the kitchen for us. He supplies everything you might need, including some food in the pantry and refrigerator. Actually, the coolest thing is that people leave some items they did not use up for the future renters, like us, and then we were able to leave some items for those that were to follow. It is kind of like a more advanced version of "leave a penny - take a penny!"

We wished we could stay longer. I would absolutely recommend Doug's place to anyone visiting the area!

It is a very convenient homeAway

  • 5 of 5

We love this home. It has everything in it just alike our home. The house is beautiful in an accessible area. It's very quiet and safe to stay for a vacation home. When we were there, we were so busy during the day that we could not have much time to spend around the house.

After all, we definitely would come back next time when we will visit San Jose sometimes in the future.

Thank you Doug for keeping the house clean. I am so sorry that when we left the house, we forgot to turn off the furnace!

Thank you again.
