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.

The space

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.

Welcome again!

Walter's place is clean and safe. Walter himself is very friendly and an interesting person to chat to. I also had to leave my luggages till the afternoon, after regular check out time and Walter was fine with it, so made my life easier! The place itself is a bit of a walk from the station and shops (15 min of foot), but this isn't a problem at all if you're driving. All in all would definitely recommend Walter and his place.

I stayed here for 3 months as a (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) intern, because the neighborhood is relatively-close to a Gbus stop. The home itself is quite nice. Three floor townhouse, and as a guest, you get a very spacious bedroom on the first floor. As pictured there is a very comfortable queen-sized bed, a closet equipped with a dresser and hangers, another storage closet that you can put your luggage in, a spare twin bed, and a very large desk with a large/comfortable modern office chair. The bedroom is in a corner of the first floor such that nobody would accidentally just walk in there, and privacy is very good. The second floor has the living room and kitchen. It's all nicely-equipped, regularly-vacuumed, and well-organized. The small half-bathroom (that you as a guest will probably be using the most) is located here, too, and it's more than proficiently-equipped for everything besides showering. The third floor has the washer/dryer and Walter's bedroom where the guest shower is located. I thought it might be awkward to go through Walter's bedroom every morning to shower, but if I just bring what I need there, he's totally cool and gives me as much time as I need to get stuff done. Just let him know ahead of time when you'll be expecting to be there. Walter and our housemate are both very good housemates to have. Both of them are friendly, clean, and have a lot of interesting things to talk about. They are also very courteous with not having guests over in the living room too late/too loud, which I appreciated. They were great company and good people to live with. Walter as a host is pretty helpful and courteous. He offered many times to drive me to work on his way to the office and to help me out with errands, but understood that I tend to prefer exploring areas on my own. He communicates very quickly and is willing to go out of his way to make things better for me as a guest. He's overall one of my favorite "landlords" I've had and I hope to stay in touch with him as a friendly acquaintance. :] On a final note, the neighborhood is very safe and is gated off starting at 9pm until 6am. I get a code that I can use to get back into one of the gates later at night, though, so I don't need to be on a curfew or anything.

Walter is a great host. Room is nice, big and clean. The house and community is quiet and nice too. It is very easy to find parking around the building. Plenty of parking place.

Very spacious room with a big desk for working. Walter was very welcoming and quick to respond. I have to point out that the shared bathroom is actually an en suite in Walter's room and I felt a little awkward going through his room to shower, especially as I had jetlag, a busy schedule and was awake at odd hours. Walter was very polite about it but I think I disturbed him a few times. This stay would be better if I had a more relaxed schedule and could use the bathroom when Walter was out.

Walter was such a fantastic host. He arranged an earlier than usual check-in which was really great and accommodating of him. He gave us a ride to the stores and showed us the best places to go. We were in the middle of a pretty hectic work trip and the place was a perfect space to rest and recuperate! The location is also awesome, close to restaurants, shops and the airport.
