The pictures of this home do not do justice to it' the beauty. Everything you'd want in a Los Gatos home. Great neighborhood, within walking distance to all the great shops and restaurants this town has to offer. Our family of six had more than enough room in this comfortable yet elegant Victorian home. The backyard was amazing and the kitchen has everything you need. Your stay in Los Gatos will be greatly enriched if you stay in this lovely home. Our host, Mike went out of his way to help our family with a small gathering we had in their backyard. My guests were blown away with our accommodations.

This was our first Airbnb experience and we loved it! We stayed at this house for a week and this felt like a five star resort. The house is nicely decorated inside and very nicely landscaped and designed outside. Communication from the hosts Mike and Donna was terrific, so we knew what to expect, and how to take care of the animal friends at the house (two cats, a fish, and a frog). The master bedroom and bath are like the rest of the house - clean, comfortable, and very nicely decorated. The hosts left clothes drawers empty for our use, brand new clean towels, and shampoo and conditioner for our use. Everything was sparkling! The kitchen is well equipped, the living room is comfy with a huge flat screen TV, the formal dining room is gorgeous, but the real star for us was the backyard. The yard is very well designed for outdoor living and hosting. We spent a lot of time there with family, watching the kids jump on the trampoline, watching the water feature (so cool!), cooking on the grill, and leisurely eating. This was truly a pleasure. Highly recommended.

It's best to look me up on LinkedIn under Mike Calise, Electric Vehicle, Car Charging Group. I'm a cleantech exec with a passion for electric vehicle technologies and offering all guests an exceptional experience.

I mountain bike in the hills of Los Gatos, CA and travel the world for business, so I know the importance of excellent service. I grew up on "LonGisland", so I'm a New Yorker at heart, but prefer the SF Bay Area since it's the center of gravity for technology and the weather is near perfect with about 345 days of sun per year average in this ideal South Bay microclimate.

I am 110% committed to your satisfaction and take pride in my home guaranteeing all my guests rave about staying here.
