Los Altos cottage description

~ Please check calendar for availability ~ it is kept up to date ~

*** New for 2014 - new QUEEN size Westin Heavenly Bed AND new laser printer under desk with USB connector.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Renovated one bedroom backyard cottage perched above the bank of a year round creek - centrally located in Los Altos between Mountain View and Palo Alto between Foothill Expwy and 280.

Available fully furnished for temporary housing while you are relocating, on extended vacation, or working temporarily in Silicon Valley. If you visit the area repeatedly during the year, you can stay in the same home away from home every time.

The cottage is surrounded by private decks overlooking the creek and wooded setting, and includes outdoor dining furniture. Feels worlds away, yet walking distance to shops and food. Work in nature using the wifi with your laptop while you sip your coffee at the outdoor dining table overlooking the creek. Or come home from a day at the office, and relax in nature with a nice glass of wine. Sightsee all day and return home to your own little quiet, private retreat with all the comforts of home.

Amenities include a programmable DISH Network DVR, 37' LCD TV, and both wired (CAT5) and WIFI internet connections. If you send me a recording list ahead of time, you'll have your shows and sports games waiting for you on the DVR. We also provide an HDMI-to-HDMI cable if you wish to play anything from your laptop or internet on the flat screen TV.

Gourmet kitchen with new stainless fridge with filtered water, new gas convection stove, instant hot water dispenser, granite counters, new cabinetry, shock absorbing gel chef's floor mat, and all the cookware and gadgets you could ever need. Also close to pizza and other delivery/takeout if you don't want to cook. Have your own full size, brand new front loading washer with dryer too.

Furnished as shown in the photos. The bedroom has a Queen size 'Westin Heavenly Bed' (new) with linens and towels provided. The chaise couch expands to create a second queen-size bed in the living room with a second set of linens also provided. It is a cozy and extremely functional 350 SF with every inch utilized. Also includes desk, dining table, and two dining chairs. Some extra storage space available in loft above main house garage if needed.

Located close to Foothill Expwy, 280, 85, very convenient to commutes or cycling. It's a straight shot up Shoreline to 101 or Google, or you can take Foothill Expwy directly to Stanford and research parks.

Includes 1 dedicated carport parking space for renters.

'Fine print':

-No pets or smoking, no exceptions (we have allergies).
-Maximum two occupants due to compact size of cottage.
-Children under age 10 may not be appropriate due to natural hazards of creek and elevated decking.
-There is no available parking other than the one dedicated space and the setting is in our backyard down a privately-owned road among neighbors who value their own privacy. For these reasons, our rental agreement states that the rental is for the named renters' use and enjoyment only and no additional visitors.
-Check in is at 3 pm or later on the day your rental starts, although we can possibly accommodate an earlier arrival if the schedule allows.
-Check out is no later than 11 am on the day your rental ends, although we can possibly accommodate a later departure if the schedule allows.
