          Hi, We are coming in September to stay with you. We can't wait!!! I have a question regarding travel to you from the San Jose airport. Is it safe to rent a car and drive ourselves? I am seeing mixed reviews on this. We would love to have a car to visit a variety of the sites and towns. Any thoughts? Thanks.
