==========

Whether extended business or pleasure brings you to San Jose, this spacious and fully equipped 2-bedroom 2 ½ bath apartment provides you with everything you need to feel instantly at home. Located within just minutes of everything that San Jose has to offer, this vacation rental offers a warmer and less expensive option than staying in a 5 star hotel.

This fully furnished accommodation is a part of a 3 bedroom 3.5 baths condo that has been customized to have two fully private units or a two bedroom 2.5 baths apartment that includes the garage and a master suite with a patio that has a private entry. Once separated with two doors with bolt locks, as well as a stacked washer dryer in between, these two fully private units do not share any space and don't have access to each other.

When you rent our two-bedroom (Brighton), you agree to allow us to rent the ground floor master bedroom package (Chelsea) during your stay.

With the 2 bedroom option, you have the advantage of 1,400 square feet of living space along with a two-car garage, formal living, a lovely dining nook, and laundry room for a lower cost. This San Jose vacation rental option will only be available if the number of guests in the unit is five or less. In the event that the number of guests staying in the unit is between six and eight, we do require that you rent the full 3-bedroom, 3-½ Lancaster unit. To send us an inquiry for 3 bedroom package, please visit

Customer Reviews:

“Matthew, Dec. 2013

This was a fantastic stay. We lodged for three nights in one of Don's properties and it was fantastically appointed. It truly felt like staying at an immaculately kept home. It was spotless, comfortable, and had every single thing a traveler would need. I've never stayed in a hotel that was as spotless as Don's property. Will definitely stay with him again.

Kenneth, May 2013

Don was very professional and took care of all the details. The house was equipped with everything we needed including soap, shampoo, and laundry detergent. Although the house was not brand new it was maintained in 'as new' condition and was spotless. I would gladly stay at one of Don's properties again.

About Don

Hello! My name is Donald Fareed. I am an ordained christian minister and an entrepreneur. I have been married to my wife for over 27 years. We both have been in the service industry for over 35 years and ministers for over two decades. I teach and preach through local cable channels and international satellite tv with over 70 million potential viewership. Our income from san jose executive housing provides the funding for our media ministry. We provide short term and extended stay vacation rentals and corporate housing. As a pastor, i love interacting with people, and as a successful entrepreneur i love the challenges of running our businesses.

Along with my partners and staff, san jose executive housing owns and manages several properties, but only two of them are available as full service vacation and corporate rentals.

Don purchased this condo in 2003

Why Don chose San Jose

Communications Hill in San Jose is one of the best locations you can find in San Jose. I love the panoramic views of South San Jose's green valleys and mountains from my properties in the area. In addition, I love the architecture and design, and the location which is very near to major highways and only 4 miles South of down town.

I manage my rentals from an office very close to Lancaster Gate community. We take care of every need and issue right away. My properties are well maintained and the furnishings are almost new. I personally don't know any other vacation rental that provides as much as we do at the rate we charge. We don't have hidden charges. We are honest and work hard to provide premium housing with exceptional services and options.

What makes this condo unique

Here are our commitment to our customers:

• We will be mindful of the trust placed in us by our customers and of our responsibility to render professional corporate housing and/or vacation rentals products and services in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

• We will employ and practice legal and truthful advertising of our products and services.

• We will fairly disclose the obligations of both the company and the customer and fulfill company obligations in an expeditious and equitable manner

• We will respond within a reasonable period of time to any customer service complaint and make every effort to satisfy the needs and concerns of our customers.

• We will not deal in a discriminatory manner and will treat our customers and employees equally.

• We will respect our relationships with the communities in which we conduct our business and we will respect the natural and physical environments of those communities.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much for renting your Lancaster Gate property to me and my sons. We really enjoyed the spaciousness and great light during our year at your property. The kitchen is the best I've ever worked in and that includes about 10 different houses.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Don's property has everything you'll need to stay for any amount of days. My family (wife, newborn baby, and I) stayed for 29 days while our home in San Jose was being remodeled. We didn't need anything at the apartment but our clothes and food/meals. The apartment is fully furnished with linen, towels, toiletries, pots, pans, coffee, laundry detergent...the list goes on and on. The apartment is clean and comfortable, and is in a newly developed area of Blossom Valley, near the major freeways, just south of downtown San Jose. I recommend this property to anyone who wants to comfortably stay in San Jose for a few days or more. Don is easy to work with and his system of reserving and paying for his rental makes it a 5 star experience. Thank you, Don!

Owner's Response: Patrick is one of the most gentle guests I have ever known. The kind of guest that make you feel lucky that you are in hospitality business. It is needless to say that during their stay we had no problem whatsoever. They left the condo spotless clean and in good order. Thank you Patrick for the pleasure of having you and your family as our guests. You are a great blessing and the world needs more of you. I am looking forward to having you stay with us again, and again. Don

Quiet, luxurious getaway

  • 5 of 5

You will never find a better landlord than Don Fareed. Everything in the condo was in perfect condition and he took us through the whole place as soon as we arrived, even offering to help with luggage. If you have difficulty with steps, this place is not appropriate, with three levels. However, if you are in good shape there is hiking right on the property and good biking as well. The place is quiet and 12 minutes from downtown San Jose and Sunnyvale. You have your own garage. Nothing negative to say about this place or how it was handled. Got full deposit back after one week.

Owner's Response: I am grateful for Ravi's reviews on both units that he rented from us. My overall experience is very positive and I highly recommend this family for renting your unit. I would give them five stars when it comes to following the house rules, cleanness, communication, and all other factors that are important to any vacation rental owners. I am looking forward to having Avi and his family stay with us again.

Nice 2 bedroom condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is very nice and has a lot of amenities of home. You can tell that it has been taken good care of. Our stay was very enjoyable. We attended a conference and during our "free" time, we toured lovely California so unfortunately, we didn't stay in the condo for any length of time. We will keep this property in mind for future trips.
