The SpaceHello Everyone!! This apartment is only two years old, nice, new amenities and clean. It is walking distance to the small and quaint downtown bars and restaurants. 2bd 1ba. Chances are pretty good that you will have the whole apartment to yourself but the other room may be occupied periodically. Awesome location!! Located right downtown close to multi-million dollar homes but in a fun lively neighborhood with other apartments and ages ranging from early 20's to 40's mainly. Good vibe. Can borrow bikes and ride the Los Gatos Vasona Trail or take them downtown if you like. 20 minutes to Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. They have Free Concerts every Friday Night during the summer: beachboardwalk dotttt comm.. Good Los Gatos Wine Tasting and Area Pics. MUST SEE: discoverlosgatosdotttcom/Gallerydottthtml (Obviously they remove website links so replace (URL HIDDEN) with a .) San Francisco is about 50 minutes away and Monterrey / Carmel are about 45 minutes away. San Jose 11 minutes. Note - there are numerous micro climates in the bay area and Los Gatos has one of the best in the bay and the world! I have over 70 friends in town and a dozen in this neighborhood. I can plug you in or of course feel free to do your own thing. This is an affluent town where you will find CEOs and execs for companies like G-o.o.g.le, Y-a.h.o.o, E.bay, Net.flix, (URL HIDDEN) etc as well as down to earth people who know how to enjoy life. The apartment itself is small but well lit, sunny, happy, and has beautiful Santa Cruz Mountain and other scenery from every window. BBQ on back patio. Depending upon which room you may have queen bed or futon, both of which are very comfortable and relatively new and will fit a couple. Also, the rooms are separated by the bathroom and hall closet at opposite ends of the hallway. I am friends with the manager of an apartment down the street and have their pool key. lol A good half dozen bars stumbling distance. And the Los Gatos Creek Trail is one block away. You can ride or hike all the way up to the Lexington Reservoir or to Vasona Park or even down to San Jose. There is a home desk top computer or wireless for your laptop. Whether you want your own space or to be invited 4wheeling in Jeeps or other fun things, the choice is yours. Flat screen TV with Netflix, and Pandora. Sunshine mostly in this beautiful micro climate and a happy vibe in this small but cozy and clean apartment in a vibrant neighborhood. Los Gatos is the best, coolest, most beautiful and fun town in the South San Francisco Bay Area and this neighborhood is a best kept lively secret. Stay in San Jose? Puuhleez!! lol :)

The SpacePerfectly located, this is spacious property with prime SF Bay Area living where many of Silicon Valley's prominent CEOs call home. You can walk to all the local restaurants, coffee shops, wine bars and historic Los Gatos Movie Theatre. For the ultimate fine dining, experience Michelin 2 Star Rated Manresa Restaurant about 500 feet away. Manresa is named in the "World's 50 Best Restaurants". A 25 minute drive south gets you to the hotly contested "Surf City" Santa Cruz beachfront on California's Hwy 1, or 40min drive to Capitola Beach, 60min to famous Monterrey Bay Aquarium, Cozy Carmel and 17 Mile Drive (a MUST DO), and famous Pebble Beach Golf and Resort, and 1.5hr to Big Sur, CA and Phieffer National Park for a day on a secluded Pacific Coastal beachfront. 50min drive north gets you to downtown San Francisco or the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay, and 1.5hr to Muir Woods Coastal Redwoods or 2hrs to Napa Valley Wine Country. Guest AccessYou have full private access to the entire premises, except some garage space that we use for storage (its marked), enjoy high speed wireless internet, DirecTV Satellite TV, single car driveway with electric vehicle charging station. Well manicured gardens surround you with a backyard waterfall, comfortable lounge chairs, chiminea and trampoline. Handicap access is limited. Interaction with GuestsWe are here to ensure your utmost satisfaction so minimally or maximally, whichever makes you happy. We'll go out if our way, or stay out of your way. The NeighborhoodDue to extremely high demand this listing is priced for availability during Super Bowl 50 long weekend from Thursday to Monday. This home is a short 25min drive to Levi Stadium. This is just the right balance between quiet and bustle. This is downtown living among Silicon Valley folks who tend to like the finer things in life but also respect the environment and can be super casual and frugal. You live among quiet mixed neighbors of families and singles in homes and apartments on a street that's between the main downtown strip and the Los Gatos Creek Trail for hiking and biking. This is truly the center of town with short walk to every town amenity located in the documented University/Edelen Historic District. Some Victorian homes in the immediate area were built over 100 years ago but it's a mixed neighborhood with new homes, historic homes and apartments with 24 hour street-side parking allowed to residents and Airbnb guests. Getting AroundA few steps gets you everywhere around town including access to all the restaurants, night clubs, coffee shops and boutiques, but a car is the best to travel to and from as there is no mass transit through this historic town. Try San Francisco's Uber or Lyft to get to and from and ditch the rental car altogether if you plan on staying local. Other Things to NoteA short hike gets you to beautiful Vasona Lake Park and Oak Meadow Park where you or your kids can ride the Billy Jones Wildcat scaled down Rail Road, rent a paddle board, sail and peddle boat and enjoy the rare treat of our outdoor Oak Meadow Park Carousel. A few minutes away is Saint Josephs Hill trail for mountain biking, jogging and hiking. You can rent a high-end mountain bike at Summit Bike Shop a short walk away. A short car ride gets you to Castle Rock hiking and rock climbing in the Santa Cruz mountains, or Famous Santa Cruz Boardwalk, beach and wharf.

Interaction with GuestsIf we're not nearby in person, we should be able to help answer any questions you have via text or email :) The NeighborhoodLos Gatos, nestled in the hillside of the Santa Cruz mountains, is a gem in the Bay Area! What started as the "weekender" get away spot for San Franciscans has evolved into a thriving town for live music, artists, shopping, hiking/biking, families, singles, and even dogs (although it's named after cats)! Much of the town's architecture reflects quaint Victorian Cottages surrounded by beautiful landscaping and pedestrian friendly sidewalks and crosswalks. Almost every weekend of the year, one can enjoy the local farmers market (Sundays starting around 8:30am) in the heart of down town. Enjoy the pumpkin glass art fair in the fall, Christmas parade, downtown lights, tree lighting and carriage rides in the winter, children's fantasy fair in the spring, and live Music in the Park all summer long on Sundays or Jazz in the Plaz every Wednesday in the summer! Not enough entertainment? Spend a day touring the town's boutiques, the local winery: Testerossa (walking distance from our house), popular hiking/biking trails, or nearby Vasona Park with a lake/picnic tables and water sports! There's also a fitness club at the bottom of the street with an outdoor pool. The town offers a wide variety of upscale and down to earth restaurants to choose from, too (the Los Gatos Cafe (breakfast), the Pastaria and Market (dinner), and Yogurt & Love (dessert!) are three of our favorite local spots!). The list goes on and on. You MUST experience this town! Getting Around-Our home is walking distance to town (3 min to the high school/newly built library(!) and 5-10 min to town). **We do live on a hillside so there is a short hill as part of the walk. -Highway: We're 3 min driving distance from Hwy 17/880. -Groceries: Safeway/Starbucks is about a 20 min walk or you can drive there or to Trader Joe's/Whole Foods in 5 min. *For coffee, the locals love the Los Gatos Coffee Roasting Company (10 min walk to town). -Airport: 15 min drive from the San Jose Airport (avoiding rush hour) -Airport: 45 min drive from the San Francisco Airport (avoiding rush hour). -Beach: 30 min drive to the Santa Cruz Beach (In the summers or during holidays, avoid beach traffic by leaving the house by 9:30 am and returning from the beach by 3pm). -Super Bowl 50 Stadium: 23 min drive without traffic. Other Things to NoteWe look forward to hosting guests in our home! Ideally we'd like long-term renters, but are open to short term stays as well--starting with 4-5 day minimums. There is a separate in-law unit contiguous with the house. The unit has its own entrance and amenities so there would be no expected interaction with house guests, other than the full-time tenants caring for the exterior lawn and patio plants (patio plants once a week). The only shared space between the in-law unit and house is on the driveway (the in-law unit has the available two spaces-tandem- on the right side of the driveway), and a portion of the lower back patio (There is a privacy screen between the in-law unit and the house). Parts of the house are currently being redecorated so some furnishings in bedrooms may be different than shown.
