Welcome to my home!
The comfortable private room is on the first floor of my home. You will enjoy a spacious room with a queen bed, perfect for business travelers seeking short-term accommodation during workdays.
The home is located 10 min walk away from Sunnyvale downtown and Caltrain station. There are varieties of restaurants and supermarkets nearby. It's also very close to Sunnyvale offices of tech companies, e.g. LinkedIn, APPL, GOOG, Juniper Networks, YHOO etc.
Welcome to home, my guest! I am sharing a little story of mine so that you know why I decided to share this room with you. Seven years ago, I spent some time studying in Seattle, where I met a lovely couple, David and Naoko, who are so generous to share their basement with a young man, a stranger.
Over the years, I traveled a bit, stayed at hostels, motels, hotels, luxury resorts…places trying very hard to be my “home”, but I never felt like so. Strangers are strangers.
Until I stayed at an Indian friend’s home, playing with his kids, sleeping on their bunk bed, having meals together, listening to Spanish conversations which I had no idea what they were talking about…did I realize this is what I want to try, like what David and Naoko did years back.
Thanks to the concept of Airbnb, I am setting up the room on the first floor for you as a friend. I will accommodate your reasonable ask if you tell me before arrival. I cannot offer standard room service, but I may bring you out for dinner or make you breakfast at weekends. Likewise, it’s also my home. I hope while you enjoy the unique experience, you can keep it clean and tidy.
* The room does NOT have a bathroom and shower inside. You can use the powder room on the second floor. NO SHOWER is provided. If you need shower during the stay, please book my other listings (just click into my picture and you will find there).
* The community is gated and one of the gates is open till 9pm. Please let me know if you are going to check in after 9pm.
* A small pool and a jacuzzi are available in the community. You may use the open shower there at your own risk. If you intend to use any of the facilities, you will need to ask for the special key.
* If you are a gamer, I have an XBOX ONE but you will have to bring your own game. :)
* If you are a couch potato, you can watch cable TV, NETFLIX, or HBO in the living room before 10pm.
* Guest parking is available in the community, first come first serve. If none is available, you may find street parking.
* Guests can use the kitchen for food and drink, or light cooking. Please make sure that you leave the place clean, and put the used utensils in the dishwasher.
Interaction with guests
I am generally available after 8pm. Please let me know anything you need during the stay. For example, if you feel a bit cold in room (due to the odd weather), I can provide extra quilt or turn on the heater.
I work in Internet companies for more than a decade. I'd love to chat on product and technology if you are also interested.

Again, NO SHOWER is provided. If you need to use shower, please check my other listings (just click into my picture and you find there).
