  • Phenomenal Home and Location


    This was not our first choice, but the house was far better than what we had originally booked. The location is super close to downtown, but on a quiet street. The amenities were superb and the local contact was friendly and responded quickly when we had an issue. Everyone who stopped by while we were staying fell in love with the charm and cozy feeling. I would absolutely recommend staying and hope to stay there again.

  • A decent place to stay…


    The pros: right in DT San Jose, excellent communication, well stocked kitchen, good security, backyard space, the heated bidet toilets are great!The cons: the owners who live below are extremely hands off and stay out of your way but it is a bit odd to see them in the backyard not going to lie. The airplane noise is extremely loud also not going to lie. There is no dining room table seating. No big deal for us as there was just 2-3 of us but I found that a bit odd.

  • Double Booked


    We booked our stay for check in on Monday and check out Friday. We came back to the property on Thursday and there was food in the Fridge (wasn't ours) and food and a cooler on the counter. Also, there was raw meat in the sink. Another party called and had gotten approval to arrive a day early an came in while we were not there and hung out. We had to cancel plans with a family member on their birthday to handle what was happening. Very disappointed that this was allowed to happen. Wouldn't stay here again because they might double book it again.

Please know that we've taken the appropriate steps to ensure that this does not recur for future guests. We’d love the chance to provide you with a truly 5-star travel experience, so please let us know if there’s anything we can do to help the next time that you book a vacation rental.

  • The place is fine but I wouldn’t rent again


    The rental itself looked like someone had tried to make it Instagram worthy rather than comfortable and livable. We arrived on a very hot day and the place was an oven. It would have been nice to have the AC in before we arrived since it took several hours to get the place cooler than 80degrees. We moved outside to where it was a bit cooler and realized quickly that we were DIRECTLY under the flight path to San Jose airport and the planes came in every very low and loud 10 minutes or so most of the evening until around midnight. We were celebrating my son's birthday and another's graduation so I baked a cake. Unfortunately, we found the oven was set poorly so that it tilted forward such that the cake turned out very lopsided toward the front of the pan. This wasn't evident to the eye at first glance, so we lost time and ingredients in the botched cake. Frustrating!!I would not recommend this rental.

    Hi Alexa, the right vacation home is everything, and we're disappointed if this wasn't the one for you. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they would like to share the following:
    - We do not keep the AC on during the summer months in an effort to save energy but apologize that this meant you arrived to an uncomfortable home.
    - We do include a map on our listing so that guests can see the approximate location of the home prior to booking. The flight pattern is not typically an issue for guests so we're sorry to hear that this impacted your stay.
    - Thanks for your feedback about the oven, we'll look into this and make the appropriate changes where necessary.
    We appreciate the time you took to leave your review!
