The space

Your studio comes furnished with a vanity/desk, Queen bed with a goose down comforter and plush goose down pillows. Your HDTV has a Roku and you are welcome to use our Netflix account which is already set up on it. Your private bathroom will be stocked with plenty of fresh towels, blow dryer, iron/ironing board, additional pillows, laundry basket. The toilet is equipped with a bidet. We have provided your room with a mini fridge, microwave and K-cup coffeemaker. You will also have access to our 60mbps Wifi.

Our garage comes equipped with a washer and dryer for use anytime. We also have a treadmill, weight bench and HDTV for your workout needs.

We have a black lab named Chauncey. He is friendly with everyone- adults, children, animals(except squirrels, he goes bananas for squirrels). The only time he barks is when someones at the door. He likes to check in with visitors and get belly scratches.

We also have a housecleaner that comes by regularly.

We are a short commute from Central Expressway, (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN), all within minutes of the house, but without the noise. Sunnyvale is really bike friendly! Let us know if you need a bicycle and we may be able to provide you with one.

Nearest groceries are Lucky's Supermarket and Target, both less than a few minutes away. We also have a farmers market open every Saturday in downtown.

I have lived in Sunnyvale for over 20 years an Vicky knows the entire Mountain View and Palo Alto area. We will be more than happy to assist you in making your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible!

Guest access

Laundry in Garage, backyard. The studio is independent from the rest of the house, so you will have your own entrance and private bath. We have provided your studio with a mini fridge, microwave and K-cup coffeemaker. No stove access available. The house is not accessible.

Interaction with guests

Although the studio will allow you to be fully independent from the rest of the house, we enjoy interacting and chatting with our guests! We are usually home in the evenings. Chauncey is always home and enjoys attention from guests. He usually hangs out with Vicky and I throughout the house.

The neighbourhood

You will be walking distance to Middlefield Road, Mathilda Avenue and a 5-10 minute walking distance to downtown Sunnyvale/Murphy Avenue, Sunnyvale CalTrain and the Sunnyvale Town Center. Some nearby companies include Apple, LinkedIn, Mercedes-Benz, Ariba, HCL America, AirTight Networks, HP/Palm, Synopsys, Blue Coat and of course which although is in Mountain View, the shuttle stops one block away from the house! Levi's Stadium is a short drive from here also.

Getting around

Sunnyvale has buses running on every major intersection. Sunnyvale Caltrain is about 10-15mins away walking. Anything else would be a short drive from Central Expressway, , all within minutes of the house, but without the noise. Sunnyvale is really bike friendly! Let us know if you need a bicycle and we may be able to provide you with one.

Other things to note

We understand that because of the thriving business in this area, most of our guests are here as new hires with their companies. If this is your scenario, we assume you have already been exposed to the volatile apartment rents in this area and high occupancy rates, so getting an apartment quickly may be difficult.

Although Airbnb is a wonderful place to start your transition to this new area, please beware of the Airbnb host's cancellation policies. Some are strict, some are lenient. We are in between. Please note that when you commit to a stay for a set period of time and decide to leave sooner than the planned leave date, you will be held accountable for the originally agreed stay as per our cancellation policy. Thanks for your understanding.

You really couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. Have you read our reviews yet?!?

Rey was a great host. He was very warm and accommodating with any requests. The room was in good shape and the bed was comfortable. Not the biggest room in the world, but it has a heater, and a fan so you can set the temperature as you wish. Also, they provided me with clean towels which was great.

Ray and Vicky are the best hosts ever. The room was very comfortable and clean, and their welcoming attitude was higher than top. I definitely recommend this place and plan to stay there whenever I'm back to Sunnyvale. No wonder this room is the first Airbnb in Sunnyvale ever. These guys really enjoy hosting people!

Another great stay with Rey! This was my second time staying at the House of Chauncey, and it was just as good as the first! Rey and Vickey provided me with all the comforts of home. Though I was there on business, the pleasure was aplenty. Once again, I HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone visiting Sunnyvale!

Rey and Vicky were fantastic hosts who provided me with all of the essential living comforts from the moment I arrived. I was in California for two weeks on business, and the house location couldn't have been better (if you're looking for a place to stay while working at the Sunnyvale Business Park, this is your spot). It's also within walking distance (~15 mins) of downtown Sunnyvale and a short drive from surrounding towns (Mountain View, Cupertino, etc.). The house is very clean and perfectly sized to house Rey, Vicky, a guest (or two), and, of course, Chauncey! During my stay, Rey and Vicky offered food, local advice, and even some rare craft beers! They were very accommodating when I arrived home late and made sure that coffee was waiting for me in the early morning. Overall, I couldn't have asked for anything more from this experience. Whether you're in Sunnyvale for work or pleasure, House of Chauncey is your place to stay!

I am a superfan of Airbnb...renting is second nature to me because I am a Property Manager for a 200+ apartment community. I know what it takes to make a stay in my home pleasant, along with my assistant Chauncey, an oversized black Labrador who loves to lay around and have his belly scratched by everyone. I am a amateur DIY guy who loves to get into new "projects" from cooking new and interesting dishes, gardening, hobbies and home improvement. When I'm not out at a good restaurant, I'm either at the park tossing a frisbee for the moose, at home watching a good show with a good drink in hand, or chatting it up with a new Airbnb guest :)
