3b/2ba house with comfort, large yard, private covered patio & great location!

An experience like no other in the San Francisco Bay Area!

This beautiful Santa Clara home is perfectly located to experience all the Bay Area has to offer. Minutes from Silicon Valley’s major technology companies, shopping, restaurants, sporting events, California nature and medical centers.

A fenced back yard and a covered patio offer additional outdoor living space ideal for children and a small dog. It is more spacious and private then what you will find at a hotel, condo or apartment. It is the ideal home base to relax.

Beautifully furnished in a Pottery Barn-like style with special attention paid to exclusive extras including high-speed cable, Wi-Fi, and a 50” HDTV. The open kitchen with stylized wood cabinetry, beautiful granite countertops and quality appliances including a side-by-side refrigerator to fill with grocery favorites and a Bosch dishwasher for easy cleanup. Cookware, dishes and cutlery are all included for enjoyable in home dining and entertaining your friends and family.

The three comfortable bedrooms are ready to sleep up to six of your nearest and dearest. The master suite opens onto a covered patio with seating. The second bedroom, also with a queen-sized bed, and the third bedroom with two twin-sized beds, share the hallway guest bathroom.

A laundry area and two-car garage are included as well. The neighborhood is quiet and welcoming. Less than two blocks walk away, is a neighborhood park, complete with tennis courts.

Santa Clara is the heart of Silicon Valley. A gateway to many world renowned technology companies such as Yahoo!, Intel, Apple, Google, HP, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Cisco, Facebook, Palo Alto Networks and major event centers such as Levi’s Stadium, the San Jose Shark Tank- SAP Center and the new Home of the Earthquakes - Avaya Stadium. Located right off of Highway 101, very near the San Jose International Airport (SJC) and connected to Highways 680, 880 and 280. There are many iconic and historic areas and experiences to be found in nearby Mountain View, Palo Alto, Los Gatos and Santa Cruz. San Francisco is a straight shot North about 45 minutes and important California universities including Santa Clara University, Stanford and San Jose State University, surround the area. https://visitsantaclara.wordpress.com

SPORTS: Levi’s Stadium, Home of Super Bowl 50 is less than 6 miles, drive from this ideal Santa Clara house. Walk or drive to the George F.

About Teresa

I was born and raised in California, as were my children. The weather, opportunities and the variety of things do is what I love about Santa Clara.

After 25 years of management in the technology industry, I decided to convert our long-term rental property into a vacation rental. Both my mother and sister have been in the vacation rental industry for many years, so it has been really nice sharing best practices with them..

Creating a 'home' away from home, and sharing our favorites for others to enjoy has become a family passion that I share with my husband, parents, sister and children.

Teresa purchased this house in 1995

Why Teresa chose The Bay Area

This is the perfect home base for family visits, work, sports fans, medical needs, adventure and entertainment. The house is spotlessly clean and spacious with a private patio and large yard with garden. It is located in a quiet neighborhood and very close to major entertainment/sporting events, medical care and education for all ages.

Santa Clara is cooled by a gentle breeze from the San Francisco Bay during summer afternoons, and the area has a relatively mild winters.

What makes this house unique

This three bedroom, single family home has a wonderful, private fenced back yard and covered patio. It provides a haven of rest in the heart of Silicon Valley and a bike ride to the Apple Campus. The house is more affordable than a 5* hotel, more private than an apartment, more spacious than a condo, more central than most other options and, it's very convenient!

A perfect home for a get away.....

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay while visiting Santa Clara. The neighborhood was very quiet and the park very near by allowed the children to play Pokemon! The house was neat and clean with new kitchen facilities. Probably our favorite was the indoor/outdoor living space. We ate dinner every night in a lovely, enclosed patio that had good lighting once it got dark. We also used the gas BBQ, which was a really nice treat for the family.

I would definitely recommend this property for a quiet getaway.

Thanks

Sharyl

Wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a month. It was delightful. The screened in patio was our highlight. We loved grilling and eating dinner on the patio. Our dogs loved the freedom of the patio with the yard. The neighborhood is friendly. The home was clean, nice beds, everything was great. The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking and grilling, with all the needed tools, etc. Being close to a neighborhood park was ideal. We thoroughly enjoyed the home.

Great experience! Nice, comfortable, clean house

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed staying in this house. There were 6 adults and a child total and the house felt spacious. The rooms were well light with natural light and well organized. Everything was clean as expected and the kitchen/dining/breakfast areas were all in line in a very open floor plan which made it enjoyable to sit around in the morning to have breakfast and at night to catch up on the day's events.

The area where house is located felt safe and quiet. Access to the house upon arrival was super easy. Definitely will recommend this house to others visiting the area as it has close access to multiple key streets.

In addition, we made a mistake initially when booking our dates but when we called they were super helpful and were able to move us to the right dates. Thank you for making it easy.
