This may be one of the more spacious listings in this part of Mountain View! We have a very large kitchen/bar and common area, and private pool. The other main reason to consider this place is location. Close to highways, tech shuttles/buses, grocery shopping within walking distance.
The room is upstairs, overlooking the backyard. It is very private, and quite roomy. There is also a large closet, table and chair. The bathroom is shared with one other person.
You are welcome to hang out anywhere in the common places. The kitchen is available anytime. You have access to all appliances- washer and dryer are in the garage. We have a nice backyard if you just want to relax and read a book or browse in the shade or near the pool.
Interaction with guests
We enjoy getting to know you and have gone out for dinners or drinks- but are totally fine if you are more private and enjoy your own space.
Other things to note
It is a 3 bedroom, and I stay downstairs. The other bedroom upstairs is occupied by an engineer at G.......e. It is generally a quite house- we sleep early for the most part. You would be sharing the bathroom with just one other person upstairs.

I'm an engineer + designer who has lived in belgium, the netherlands, japan & the usa. I worked in michigan, new york city, and moved to beautiful mountain view california 3 years ago.
*In regards to several cancellations from 2010-2011: I had to move from Jersey City in short notice to California. Since I was booked a year + in advance, it resulted in many cancellations (mostly weeks or months in advance). You can see the positive reviews from the people that did stay there before my move. Other cancellations resulted when the new 'auto booking' feature was set inadvertently- but I was able to contact them right away and we decided that the best way was to cancel (and not without consequence..).
There have been reviews on the cleanliness of the bathroom (while I was away in Asia for a few months). Though I did hire cleaners while I was gone, they didn't do a great job. It has been deep cleaned a few times as well as all the rooms/kitchen since that reviewer, and the tenants who have reviewed it since have told me it was fine. Unless I am told of cleanliness issues during a stay I am unable to address them. I do have a cleaner come in also.
*** update: I have just moved two doors down in the same complex here in Mountain View but have kept my previous place for family coming later in the year (see ''cozy bedroom near downtown 4'). Feel free to check back at my other reviews at 'cozy bedroom near downtown' and 'cozy bedroom near downtown 2!').
