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

I am staying two doors down. People who have stayed are generally long term (3 months or longer). Most of the people who have stayed have been G****le or F***ok engineers. It is generally a quite house. Although I am two doors down, guests can knock on my door anytime, and I will check in with you to make sure you have everything you need.

David was quick to respond to my messages and the place was well maintained. It's also a short bike ride away from downtown Mountain View. I appreciated the in unit laundry and how quiet it was at night. There is also an apple tree in the back which is pretty neat.

David's place is conveniently located within walking distance to Castro Street, Mountain View, and within a short drive to major freeways. I found it very convenient during my commute to work. The room is good for short stays and transition stays if you just moved to the area and are looking for a longer term rental. The landlord does not stay in the house, so before you make any reservations, check with David about the roommates. The house is clean and the shower is good. The neighbors are kind and friendly too.

David was an incredible host from start to finish. The room was great, exactly as described and the neighborhood was beautiful. I'd highly recommend staying here.

David is awesome and very friendly and welcoming. Great safe neighborhood with plenty of street parking. Very comfortable bed and fast reliable internet. Simple no frills and functional for a great price! This trip was all business but hoping to return soon and take a day to enjoy the Stevens Creek Trail and Dn Tn Mt View. All in all a very pleasant stay.

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!').
