About Teresa

I am a professional Customer Experience Manager with a passion for creating exceptional home away experiences in the Silicon Valley. I was born and raised in California, as were my children. The weather, career opportunities, and variety of things to do is what I love about the area.

Sharing family favorites for others to enjoy is a passion that I share with my mother, sister, and children. Together we offer unique, hassle-free and first class vacation rentals from the West Coast to the East Coast. Our Santa Clara home was my husbands’ bachelor pad many years ago. Facing rising college tuition while keeping an eye on retirement from the technology industry, I converted this house into a beautiful home for others to enjoy while traveling for business, vacation or adventure.

Teresa purchased this house in 1995

Why Teresa chose Santa Clara

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!

Wonderful stay in Santa Clara

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our stay at this lovely home. We were in town for our daughter's graduation from Santa Clara University and anticipated wanting more space than even a couple hotel rooms would provide. This was perfect. Spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, supremely well-stocked kitchen. We had a gathering with our daughter's housemates and their families on the night before graduation and bbq'd in the beautiful yard. There was plenty of room for people to spread out (and we took some great photos in front of the bougainvillea)! It was sweltering all weekend and the house stayed cool and peaceful. Great access to everything -- 10 minutes from campus, the airport, Santana Row. Teresa, the owner, was super accessible, responsive, and hospitable to us at every turn. We loved every minute and recommend this home unreservedly!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

The owner has created a welcoming environment. The kitchen is well stocked with all necessaries and extras. They have supplied an assortment of toys to entertain children of all ages if you have little ones. The washer and dryer allowed us to pack light. Near the college, supermarkets, and restaurants. We especially enjoyed the enclosed patio, playing cards and just hanging out.

Great stay, great owner!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Teresa's home. Everything was clean and ready for us when we arrived. The instructions to access the home, keys etc. were clear making our arrival a breeze. Everything we needed was provided plus more. All five of us would highly recommend this home as a vacation rental. And Teresa was great to work with, providing fast communication whenever we had questions. Definitely 5 stars!!
