Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything we needed for a family reunion. With 5 adults and 2 children the home was expansive enough to accommodate everyone in comfort. With downtown Willow Glen just a block over on Lincoln Ave. there are restaurants, book stores, a pharmacy and boutiques. Everything one needs is available in the kitchen. Doesn't get much better than this!

Beautiful home in great Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home well stocked with supplies and immaculately clean. Steam shower in master bath was a surprise bonus and enjoyed by many. Great location to walk to coffee, great restaurants and shopping. Very enjoyable backyard and upstairs balcony with seating for several. The only downside was the A/C which seems to be the common thread in many reviews. We could never get it to cool enough. We opened windows in the evening as directed to help even out the inside and outside temperatures but some evenings we were home late and the house was not cool. Regardless, I wouldn't hesitate to stay in this beautiful home again when in the area.

Wonderful stay in San Jose!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for four nights for our daughter's wedding in Saratoga. Everything about it is 5-star! The location is perfect, easy walking distance to shops and restaurants (great Mexican food at Aqui) and easy to get to freeways. We had family here from out of state, and it was so nice to have them with us instead of at a hotel. Friends were able to come over and hang out in the lovely back yard and relax; even the bride and groom visited the day after the wedding. There are plenty of linens and the kitchen is well equipped; street parking is easy. The master bedroom is beautiful, and the steam shower is a treat. We were completely satisfied with our stay. If you are looking for a property in San House, you can't do better than this.

very nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house, ideal location. House very clean. Some maintenance issues need to be addressed, and John, the owner, said he was going to take care of them right away; he was just not aware. We would DEFINITELY stay at this house again. The owner is a very nice and personable man, and returns calls or texts very promptly!

We enjoyed our stay in Willow Glen. This house is located in the heart of a wonderful area and easy to get to. The home was spotless and very nice for 7 people. The beds were super comfortable and the owner was easy to contact and quick to reply. We really enjoyed it!

Quiet neighborhood with easy access to shops, restaurants, and freeway.

  • 4 of 5

We booked this home to attend a conference nearby. The house is simply furnished yet very comfortable. The master suite is fabulous and the large shower/steam room was a treat. The owner was very helpful assisting in adjusting the air conditioning as it was 90 the first day we arrived. We've recommended the location to a few of our friends.
