Our family is offering a fully furnished cottage behind our family home for short term visitors to Silicon Valley. We gladly accommodate interns, traveling nurses, families who are between home purchases, and guests relocating to the San Jose area.

The space

Our family is offering for rent a fully furnished cottage located on the most desirable street in San Jose, University Avenue. The space is available as both a temporary residence for short term stays as well as a long term lease.

This home is ideal for interns and temporary employees as we are conveniently located from several high-tech shuttle stops. We are also within biking distance of many companies including Adobe, Intel, Nvidia, and Samsung. We are a short drive to Apple and Tesla.

We have fully furnished this rental with everything you need to feel at home including a bed, smart-tv, kitchen bar table, art, and much more. The kitchen is fully stocked with new and high-end dishware, utensils, glassware, pots and pans, and many Kitchenaid accessories. The kitchen has appliances including dishwasher, electric range, refrigerator, and an over-the-range microwave.

The Cottage has its own built in Washer and Dryer as well as Central AC.

The Cottage is ideal for tech interns, tech commuters, traveling nurses, guests who are visiting Silicon Valley for temporary work and school assignments, as well as guests who are in between a home-purchase or home-sale and in need of a temporary residence.

This property is ideal for traveling nurses as we are located minutes away from many of Silicon Valley's prominent hospitals including Good Samaritan, O'Connor Hospital, El Camino Medical Center, Valley Medical Center, El Camino Hospital, and Kaiser Santa Clara.

Our family has been accommodating guests to the San Jose area for the past 8 years. We have a lot of experience with renting our space to guests from outside of San Jose (both from within the US and International) who are visiting the area for work and school.

We welcome pets for a small pet rent in addition to the price shown on this page. The cottage's private gated backyard is ideal for guests with dogs.

Located one block away from the San Jose municipal Rose Garden, some of the things that our family loves about this cottage and neighborhood are:

1. This is an absolutely incredible neighborhood. Judges, mayors, doctors, and executives are the typical residents of the estates on University Ave.

2. Located a quarter mile from the Rose Garden, we love jogging through University Ave in the mornings to the park and running laps.

3. Located a quarter mile from the San Jose YMCA, our family loves going to the pool there in the summer.

4. Five minute walk to Starbucks and the Rose Garden branch Library

5. Located just minutes away from I280, a Stanford student can be on campus in about 25 minutes on days when you need to be at school. The house is a 10 minute bike ride to Santa Clara University on Park Ave, and 10 minute bike ride to SJSU.

6. Although this home is 1 freeway exit from the San Jose Minetas airport, it is out of the flight path and does not get any airport noise. This is extremely ideal for someone who travels a lot and needs easy airport access.

7. We are conveniently located to Silicon Valley University.

Please respond to this ad or call us directly for more information. We look forward to serving your housing needs.

I stayed at the cottage for 2 months while waiting for my condo to be finished and had such wonderful experience! Rambo and Jessica are excellent hosts. When I picked up my keys to the cottage Rambo made me the most wonderful espresso drink I think I've ever had. If I had any requests they were promptly completed and Rambo and Jessica never felt intrusive. They cottage and yard was well maintained throughout my stay. The cottage is adorable and is stocked with all the items I needed. It always stays cool due to the huge redwood trees covering it, even during hot summer days. My dachshund loved the enclosed backyard and spent many days basking in the sun on the porch set. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone! It was perfect for my stay! Charlie (the dachshund) and I are going to miss our private little cottage with a yard when we move back San Francisco!

The Jacobys family welcomed me and my family to the area. They provided some recommendations of places to go for my wife, daughter, and me. They also helped us get some items we had shipped to us. The cottage is great. The indoor and outdoor areas are great. My family of 3 was able to fit in the 1 bedroom for our time here. At about 400 sq. ft. it is tight with the 3 of us, but works well. In addition to the interior space, a private outdoor seating area made the cottage feel just a little bit bigger. Private access via side gates allowed us to come and go as we please. The cottage has a dishwasher to clean up the dishes as well as a little stove to warm up some food. The cottage doesn't have heating or ac, but being winter, they provided a space heater that has been able to warm up the whole house. A washing machine and dryer was also provided, but it isn't in the cottage. We were able to go inside the main house to do some laundry. The Rose Garden neighborhood is a great neighborhood. It is a well maintained, comfortable area. We only wish we could stay in the area longer. The cottage is only a few blocks from the local YMCA and while the local transet bus stop is just around the corner, not to mention Caltrain 5-7 blocks away. Occasionally we hear the planes overhead, but we just keep thinking it is the wind (came from Kansas). You can hear the planes just about anywhere in San Jose though, and my daughter likes looking at them. I would recommend this to someone who needs a place to stay. They Jacobys were really helpful and nice. To top it all off, they let our cats stay as well, which the cats called home right away.

I came to San Jose to intern for 14 weeks at (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). I rented the cottage and a bedroom + bathroom in the main house. I mailed my bedding and towels to their address in advance, and they had made my bed ahead of my arrival. Rambo and his family were always ccomdating. There was no awkwardness or unreasonable demands. I felt perfectly at home in both the main house and cottage. The cottage and room were both exactly as advertised. The deposit and payment system for the rent was reasonable. The residence was maintained just as I expected over the course of our stay. Checkout and check-in were both smooth and reasonable. I'd definetly recommend the residence to any interns or visitors to the Bay Area.

I stayed in the private cottage for 3 months while working in Santa Clara. Rambo and Jessica and their family were great hosts. They always made me feel welcomed and were very friendly. They made my arrival process from NC very smooth and easy. They took care of anything that the cottage needed as far as maintenance very quickly and it was never a a hassle.The cottage was cozy and I loved the backyard with the redwoods and private seating area to enjoy the California weather. The bathroom was updated and really nice and the Smart TV to play netflix, etc was also a nice touch. The neighborhood was also really beautiful and a great place to take a walk to the nearby Rose Garden. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay here, as I would if I ever came back to the area.
