About this listing
Attention Travelers: Please inquire about availability before booking/instant booking. Thank you!
Vicky and I have a nice, comfortable newly renovated studio with attached private bath and separate entrance in our home for you to stay in. It's in a quiet neighborhood in Sunnyvale, bordering Mountain View.
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!

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.
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.
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!

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.

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 :)
