Perfect location for families, couples or singles. Chef's kitchen, above-ground pool, hot tub, BBQ, fire pit. Across from a park, walking distance from restaurants & near a track. Near Santana Row, Campbell and Los Gatos. 2 friendly cats.
The pride of our house is our newly remodeled kitchen. With a spacious, open layout that flows into the dining room, you'll find it quickly becomes the focal point of any gathering. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, plates, utensils, glasses, etc. (this is our home, after all). If cooking, feel free to use any of the wide variety of spices located in pull-out racks on either side of the stove. The kitchen also features a double oven, microwave, toaster oven, dishwasher, and various smaller appliances, including a Vitamix blender (great for smoothies).
The second most notable feature is a sun room converted into a kid's playroom, which we like to call the "Fun Room". Our kids are 5 and 7, so the toys in there are age-approriate for and pre-schoolers and elementary school kids.
The master bedroom has a king-sized bed with a comfortable mattress and an adjoining bathroom with shower. The other 2 bedrooms each feature a bunk bed (twin over twin). There's a shared bathroom with bathtub for those bedrooms. The living room has a gas fireplace, cable TV, BluRay player (with a large selection of movies), and a very comfortable sectional couch which sleeps 2 more (for a total of 8). We could also leave an air mattress if that would be better.
Zugang für Gäste
You'll have full access to the entire downstairs: all 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, dining room, living room, and Fun Room. We have a backyard with a 12-foot diameter above-ground pool, hot tub, small gas grill and fire pit that you're also welcome to use. There are several fruit trees, including peaches and avocados, which may be fruiting during your stay (help yourself).
The upstairs is not available. We used to have a border (who would take care of the place while guests were here) staying there, but we don't anymore. Someone may still stop by once or twice during your stay to feed the cats, but the place is all yours. The upstairs is mostly used for storage now, and not suitable for guests.
Interaktion mit Gästen
We will be traveling during your visit, but we'll still be reachable via phone, email, SMS, etc. If there are any issues, there will be a local contact. Also, we have 2 cats who live in the house, so someone will be stopping by once or twice during the week to check on them and feed them.
Weitere wichtige Infos
We have two indoor-outdoor cats. They are not allowed in the bedrooms, so if you're allergic, the bedrooms are your safe haven. All rooms feature hardwood floors or tile.
Feel free to use the washer/dryer in the garage for laundry.
The AC is actually a portable unit set up in the dining room. It can be moved to any bedroom, if you like.
We have 24Mbps Internet. You'll get the WiFi password when you arrive. (The router is in the master bedroom, if you want to hard-wire in.) We also have basic cable and numerous Blu-Ray discs for your enjoyment. Instructions on how to use the universal remote are in the house manual.
This is our home, not a vacation rental; please be respectful of that.
