About Yonten Raza

I love getting to know people and accommodating them as best as I can. I travel 5-7 months out of the year for work, but there will always be someone available to help guests settle in.

When in town, you will find me gardening, or going in and out of my workshop in the garage. The garage is separate and secluded from the main house.

Perfect spot for business travel to Silicon Valley!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here for a business trip and we loved our stay just as much this time around! Yonten and her husband are very accommodating. Their home is lovely and slept 6 of us very comfortably. We hosted clients for dinner one evening and received endless compliments on the place! Highly recommend!

Perfect Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family stayed here for our youngest daughter's wedding week. The house was perfect. It accommodated all ten of us with ease. Everyone had an ability to have some quiet time as well. The yard was great. Just wish it had been a little warmer to use the pool. The location in relationship to the wedding activities was perfect as well. A very perfect week for a perfect wedding.

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 people stay here for a business trip. The house is gorgeous both inside and out. High ceilings in kitchen, great appliances if you want to cook at home, and even an amazing outdoor grill and pool area! The owner lives on site if you need anything but we didn't even notice because our stay was so seamless! Would highly recommend this place.

Nice house but homeowner difficult to deal with

  • 3 of 5

Overall, the property was very nice, but the homeowner lives in the backyard in a separate garage that's been converted into a house. While she was nice and easy to work with prior to our stay, the day before she sent a long list of final requirements which were not in the initial listing. We ended up renting this for an engagement party, but upon them seeing we had roughly 35 people there enjoying their outside patio they tried to kick us out claiming it was not meant to host more than the 7 people it listed online (for staying overnight - which we abided by). We also had to end up calling the fire department after the grill started to smoke the wood frame it was covered by. Overall, the house is nice but if you're planning to have more than the 7 people it says it can accommodate you will likely be hearing from her. Luckily, our group was mostly adults and even had a few lawyers who helped her understand we weren't violating any of the rules :)

Owner's Response: This was a learning curve for us. Apparently we didn't realize that being drunk and disorderly after 10pm in a quiet affluent neighborhood was something that we needed to put in the house manual as not acceptable. Yes I called the fire department at 2am, but this only after 4 frantic phone calls to VRBO for help and after an extremely drunk and rude confrontation by Chris' father complete with profanity and spittle. We've never had a problem with the grill before but of course the grill has never been used for more than 6 hours straight as this is a residential home not a commercial kitchen. I apologize for the misunderstanding and encourage any of our future guests to please review the new and improved house manual. I would also like to note that if you are looking to use VRBO as a platform to list your rental that you think twice. They had told us that they would remove the above review but have since recanted and were actually of very little help in resolving a very scary and dangerous situation. We at this time are reconsidering continuing our partnership with VRBO.

Great for families!

My parents and brothers family stayed here for my wedding. They really enjoyed it, the kids loved playing in the pool. The Kitchen is well appointed, and the grill is really nice!

Thanks so much!
