Your suite has a very comfortable King bed, Japanese washlet, closet space, TV, wi-fi, private washer/dryer, fully equipped kitchen with gas stove, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Ceiling fan plus radiant in-floor cooling/heating. Private parking.

The space

Ours is an architecturally significant home, completed at the end of 2015. We have 180 degree bay views, adjoin a vineyard, and have access off the back lawn to miles of pathways for jogging or riding without vehicle traffic.

Guest access

Please request use of pool and hot tub.

Interaction with guests

We live in the main home with our two kids and friendly dog. Our front door is about 100 feet from your entrance, so we may not see you often.

Other things to note

The King bed is an "American Leather" sleeper sofa, renowned for its comfort. (No springs: no creaking or sagging.) It folds into a sofa in a few seconds. Open up two bamboo director's chairs and a folding coffee table to use your space as a living room. There's also an outdoor dining table and three chairs just outside your suite.

Vara's place is one of a kind. Really made an otherwise routine trip to Mountainview a unique and fun experience. The pool is amazing too :)!

We had a lovely stay at Vara's gorgeous Los Altos home. The weather was beautiful and we played bocce ball on the lawn overlooking the hills, and soaked in the hot tub under the starry skies. I loved that Vara thought of everything especially the Japanese toilet! She is also very quick to respond if you have any questions/concerns. Five out of five stars :)

Vara's guest suite has everything you could need. The space is very clean with high-end finishes and special touches throughout. The setting is peaceful and the home is well-situated for biking, running, etc.

This is an excellent Airbnb. I never actually met with Vara but her instructions were precise and the stay was absolutely amazing. Absolutely stunning views of the East bay and Silicon Valley. The place is extremely modern and perfect for a 1 or two people. I was here an business and loved being able to travel 15 minutes into the hills and feel as if I was in the wilderness. Saw lots of deer in my 6 days staying, I would absolutely stay again. Great time, thanks Vara!
