Rental Home
This is a great spot for business travelers, traveling nurses, or solo adventurers who like their own space. Or maybe a couples getaway for the weekend to explore San Jose or go to a game or a concert at the SAP Center or Levi's Stadium. Or maybe you just want to get close to the SJC airport for an early morning departure. Whatever the reason, the Casita is your best choice. It's an amenity packed tiny house. We have a dedicated parking space in the driveway for you. You have access to the main house to do laundry if you're here for any length of time. It's a quick walk to the light rail to attend the Convention Center, get to the train station for your day in San Francisco. Or have a staycation and sit out and soak up the rays in your private patio. Unplug and try tiny house living.

Kitchenette has plates, Kcup coffee maker, microwave, convection toaster oven, fridge, induction burner for stove top cooking, double sink and everything to prep a meal. A fold down table is a desk or your dining area. Or eat outside on a nice day. The bathroom has a corner sink, abundant medicine cabinet space, towels, a hair dryer and a place to hang your toiletry bag or use the toiletries provided. There is a tiled shower stall with auto off light and exhaust fan. There is a hamper with a handle to carry your laundry to the main house's common area laundry room that we give you an access code for those longer stay guests who need laundry facilities. TV is on an articulating arm so you can watch it from bed, from outside or while in the kitchen. Watch your favorite shows on a Chromecast with your own Hulu/Netflix/Prime Video subscriptions. You have a Google Mini to act as your assistant during your stay. You can voice command your exterior lights or ask it how to get around. You have hanging space for clothes, an ironing board and iron, a light vacuum, hooks, and places to hang things. During the winter you have a heater and during the warmer months you have a portable A/C. The patio is charming and serene and has overflow shed cabinet for your luggage or personals which comes in handy to store things on a longer stay vs in your vehicle. You can read outside under the market umbrella, or sun bathe on the chaise lounge. If you have a baby or young child that sleeps with you, an accommodation can be made to sleep 3. More

Loved this modern tiny home. Private, in the back yard of a larger house that is also listed as a vacation rental so you really feel like you have a lot of privacy. Really made the most of the smaller space with modern decor and...More

I've stayed at Stacey's place a couple of times now and would recommend it. The Casita has everything I need and is close to the light rail and Japantown for restaurants. Stacey has been a great host and I will stay there again.

About the neighborhood
We are located in the area of downtown San Jose known as Japantown (one of the 5 remaining in the US). A walkable distance to the eateries and shops of Japantown. Business travelers to nearby jobs such as PayPal, or conventions at the San Jose Convention Center are typical reasons to book this space. Downtown San Jose has popular areas like San Pedro Square & Little Italy, along with historic districts with beautiful homes like Naglee Park. It's a destination for visitors to San Jose State University or Santa Clara University. It's also popular for the sporting venues like Avaya Stadium (soccer) or light rail to Levi's Stadium (football & concerts).
Getting around
It's proximity to the VTA light rail system (~6 min walk) is simply the best and probably #1 reason for stays at this space. Currently $2.25 per ride paid for at a kiosk. CalTrain is a a few light rail stops away at the main train station (Diridon). It will get you to San Francisco for some sightseeing or Palo Alto/Mt View/Sunnyvale for a business meeting. Ford Bikes can be rented at Ryland Park, a short walk down N 1st St. Bird scooters, and Lime Scooters are also easy methods of transportation when you don't want to walk.
