About Teresa

I was born and raised in California, as were my children. The weather, opportunities and the variety of things do is what I love about Santa Clara.

After 25 years of management in the technology industry, I converted our long-term rental property into a vacation rental. My mother and sister also have vacation rental properties, so we are able to share best hosting practices with each other from coast to coast.

Creating a 'home' away from home, and sharing our favorites for others to enjoy has become a family passion that I share with my husband, parents, sister and children.

Teresa purchased this house in 1995

Why Teresa chose The Bay Area

This is the perfect home base for family visits, work, sports fans, medical needs, adventure and entertainment. The house is spotlessly clean and spacious with a private patio and large yard with garden. It is located in a quiet neighborhood and very close to major entertainment/sporting events, medical care and education for all ages.

Santa Clara is cooled by a gentle breeze from the San Francisco Bay during summer afternoons, and the area has a relatively mild winters.

What makes this house unique

This three bedroom, single family home has a wonderful, private fenced back yard and covered patio. It provides a haven of rest in the heart of Silicon Valley and a bike ride to the Apple Campus. The house is more affordable than a 5* hotel, more private than an apartment, more spacious than a condo, more central than most other options and, it's very convenient!

Perfect home away!

  • 5 of 5

This home is the perfect home away! It is a very comfortable home in a quite neighborhood and close to everything we needed: Levi's stadium, grocery store, park and good restaurants. The patio and back yard adds another comfortable sitting area as well. The owner communicates well and offers helpful suggestions. This home made our time in Santa Clara very enjoyable.

It was a nice house overall! The outdoor sitting area was nice.

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home for a few of my family members that came into town for my mom's surprise party. The three families came from the Sacramento and Hawaii areas and they were impressed. They said it was a good stay in a quiet neighborhood.

Teresa was really good about communication and it was nice to know she would respond if I had any questions or concerns.

Overall, it was a nice home and things couldn't have gone any smoother.

Room to relax and central location

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed when I called the number provided during the search process and spoke directly with the owner! Immediately, I felt comfortable with the property, location and excellent service. We spoke and emailed other times with quick responses to all questions. It was a special weekend attending a wedding in Saratoga Springs and so wonderful to have a place to relax in the evening with friends and a table to gather around for morning coffee, inside or on the porch. Everything we needed was provided and we thank you for sharing this property with us.

A perfect home for a get away.....

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay while visiting Santa Clara. The neighborhood was very quiet and the park very near by allowed the children to play Pokemon! The house was neat and clean with new kitchen facilities. Probably our favorite was the indoor/outdoor living space. We ate dinner every night in a lovely, enclosed patio that had good lighting once it got dark. We also used the gas BBQ, which was a really nice treat for the family.

I would definitely recommend this property for a quiet getaway.

Thanks

Sharyl

Wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a month. It was delightful. The screened in patio was our highlight. We loved grilling and eating dinner on the patio. Our dogs loved the freedom of the patio with the yard. The neighborhood is friendly. The home was clean, nice beds, everything was great. The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking and grilling, with all the needed tools, etc. Being close to a neighborhood park was ideal. We thoroughly enjoyed the home.
