Well-lit room with full-sized bed, dresser & closet space in house in the heart of Silicon Valley. Quiet space with nearby groceries, restaurants and coffee shops. Newly remodeled, shared bath and newly remodeled kitchen are now usable as of November 2016.

Off Highway 85 nr 280, 237 and 101

No perfume/cologne pls due to migraines.

The space

Private room with plenty of closet space.

Nightstand is setup with a lamp for your reading pleasure. Electricity is available at the nightstand and throughout the room for any phones, laptops, etc. I prefer to sleep with the house a bit cooler, so those in sync with me will be quite comfortable with no adjustment. Those who like it warmer will find a space heater in the room as well as extra blankets and an electric blanket.

I love meeting new people and am open to all cultures.

The bathroom is shared with the other guest room. I also use the shower as mine is under construction. Newly remodeled kitchen is now available for use by guests.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen only and will have a key to allow entry at will. I do ask that no meat, other than fish, be cooked in the kitchen. However, there is a fridge for guests where one can put cold cuts or such.

Also, remodeling work can be going on during the day. I try to keep most work, and all noisy work, to normal business hours and try to keep this noise to a minimum. I will ask you to leave your door a crack open when you are not here, so I know when you have left and noisier work can begin. I try my best not to disturb my guests and the work will not affect your room.

Due to work taking place, there is currently no living room access.

Interaction with guests

You will receive as much or as little interaction as your introverted/extroverted personality craves. My goal is make you as comfortable as possible and provide you with a home away from home.

I'm an extroverted introvert, apparently, so I'm pretty flexible :-). I can be pretty outgoing, but I understand people who need their space.

Upon arrival, you will be provided with an information packet on getting around the area. Feel free to ask any questions, but I hope I've provided you with the basic information you need. Please let me know if I've left anything out.

If you find any issues (something I've neglected to clean, for example...I'm only human :-) ), please let me know.

Other things to note

Sunnyvale and most surrounding towns have a bag law, so they do not provide bags upon checkout. I will provide a few re-useable bags for your use during your stay.

Check in time is 2PM - 10PM
Check out by 11AM

If you need a checkin later than 5pm, please let me know before using Instant Book. I often can accommodate, but I need some notice and cannot always accommodate. I cannot ever accommodate checkins later than 10 pm though. Also, I will need a one hour window set on the day of booking for planning purposes. I understand that flights can be delayed and emergencies come up and we can work together to then find a time that works for both of us.

Please no smokers, even if you are not going to smoke in my home. The smell on the clothing is enough to set off a migraine for me...I'm sorry. I also cannot allow heavy perfumes, aftershave or colognes for the same reason :-(.

Also, no showers after 11 pm as it will wake me up. Other than that, normal courtesy regarding noise levels is expected and no heavy drinking, but social drinking is fine.

Please note the "moderate" cancellation policy and understand that if your plans change in the middle of a stay you've prevented someone else from booking the room.

Ruth is an excellent host who makes you feel like you are staying with a friend. She is very good with communication and strives to make sure you have everything you may need. Room and bathroom are clean and bed is comfy. I will always check her place first when I am in the area.

Response from Ruth:
Thank you so much, Susan. I look forward to hosting you again. Thank you again for the wine. That was so sweet of you to think of me. I can't wait to share it with a friend and find out if I can actually drink a wine if it sulfite-free.

Ruth was very sweet. Her house was in a nice residential neighborhood close to the various meetings I needed to attend.

The stay at Ruth's place was very enjoyable. Room was nice as pictured. Bathroom was new, spacious and bright. There was a nice set of all toiletries we needed. A detail I also liked was rain shower head. Kitchen was very clean and well equipped and joy to cook in. Ruth was warm and very caring. Good location. Definetly would revisit on the next trip to Bay area.

Ruth was really great. She is a very attentive host and anything you need she can provide. She also had coffee out every morning if that's something you want. Definitely a place to stay.

Very quiet and great hospitality. I had several fun conversations with Ruth in the evening. She organised morning coffee and helped me out when I got a nasty cold. It was super easy to get parking here right outside the house as the street parking has no restrictions and the neighbors all have driveway parking.
