The apartment was very clean and well-equipped. The bed is comfortable. The patio and garden offer a quiet outdoor space. An easy walk to the center of San Jose. Thanks to Lee for the welcome basket, the restaurant recommendations, and the conversation. He was a friendly and helpful host.

This place was great! The space was exactly as described and perfect for a solo traveler. Hannelore and Lee were very accommodating and allowed me to drop off my things early. I hung out with Lee on the back porch one night and he is full of great stories. I would definitely stay here again.

Hannelore & Lee's place is charming, and was perfect for my business trip to San Jose. What a great location...minutes from downtown! Check-in was easy, and communications were thorough and speedy (thank you!). The apartment is super clean, with a comfie bed, work desk, great kitchen, and plenty of privacy, if desired. There is a step up from the kitchen to the desk/bed/bathroom area, which was a fun feature, but obviously this wouldn't suit everyone. It turned out that Hannelore & I had much in common, so we had some wonderful chats! I look forward to future stays here!

Response from Hannelore & Lee:
Thank you, Melinda! It was fun meeting you, too, and discovering common grounds. Hope you had a good concert, but also a chance to see the sights in Riga, especially the numerous art nouveau buildings all over town.

I loved my stay at Hannelore & Lee's place! Check-in was simple and flexible. The location was a lovely 30-minute walk to the convention center through the park-like university campus. The complimentary breakfast got me through my morning sessions at my conference. I enjoyed chatting with Lee out on their porch, and I appreciated the privacy of the efficiency when I needed to come back and relax after a long day. I recommend staying here, and hope to stay again next time I'm in San Jose!

I am originally from Germany, and have lived over the years in both countries along with my husband, Lee.
Both of us are bilingual. I am a translator for English/German languages. Lee's interests are the natural sciences, and currently represents European companies who cater to US researchers.
We have been very happy using AirBnB in Europe as well as in the US, so now we have decided to rent out our little "granny unit" attached to the back of our house in downtown of San Jose.
We are both open and like getting to know people of various backgrounds, so I believe this will be an exciting adventure for us!
