Welcome to istayhere

When we first got started in the vacation rental business 10 years ago, most folks did not even know what vacation rentals really were. For years, it would take quite a bit of effort explaining to our friends and family what kind of work we did. Back then, there was only VRBO (Vacation Rentals By Owner). Then slowly Homeaway, Airbnb, Alwaysonvacation came to the scene. We still remember when Airbnb’s founders rented one of our houses for their first annual corporate retreat and all of them were so young, in their early 20’s. Eventually, Tripadvisor came on board as Flipkey and now the vacation rental market is fully grown. By now, almost everyone has either heard or rented a vacation rental and we no longer have to find ways to explain what type of service we provide here at istayhere.

Over the years, we have accumulated a great deal of experience in catering to a wide range of short term rental guests, as well as a wealth of interesting stories and unique encounters. We have hosted the young (junior sport teams) and old (senior Olympians), corporate clients (DB Logistics, Google, Ebay…), government entities (SWAT, military of all branches, DOD), religious and spiritual groups (to include the Church of Scientology, twice), and most importantly family gatherings (weddings, reunions, graduations…) A recurring theme is that people love to stay together when they travel, whether for business or leisure. Everyone enjoys cooking, dining and gathering. It has become our mission to make sure that our properties are furnished to accommodate groups in the most convenient and functional settings. We have listened and learned from many of our guests’ feedbacks so that we can continually improve our properties. The results are fantastic and we couldn’t be happier.

So if you are planning your trip to San Jose, talk to us. Let us know what you need and we will do our best to make sure your specific needs are met. And please, don’t be shy. No request is too new or strange. We would love to make your stay enjoyable and we will go the extra mile.

Cheers,
From the I Stay Here’s team
