Beautiful property with a country feel, yet convienient to Los Gatos

  • 4 of 5

Very nice property and hassle free check in/check out. Owners very easy to deal with. My kids really enjoyed seeing the horses on property! Very clean, private and peaceful guest house with all amenities. Would have been nice to have sleeper sofa, but in fairness the rental is probably ideal for family of 4. I was travelling with my 2 older children and my Dad made the trip. I would highly reccommend property to anyone staying in Los Gatos area.

Great property and location.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting for this 2 bedroom apartment/guest house on a private property. It's not a big space but comfortable enough for our family of four. Having the kitchen helped us save money on meals. Access to two extra bathrooms downstairs off the poolside was convenient. Being able to do laundry was also a plus.

Our family enjoyed the access to the pool and hot tub, and my boys loved petting the two horses and dogs on the property. The property is very picturesque and quiet. Close to grocery shopping, banks, etc.

Conveniently located to major highways for drives to the beach or other popular locations.

The owners are friendly and helpful.

We would definitely stay there again. Good choice for a small family.

Wonderful, calm and comfortable property.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay for four nights. We are a family of four and we brought our dog. Everything was just perfect. We enjoyed lounging around, taking a hot tub and hiking around the area. It is such a beautiful area and we really loved Los Gatos. Ed and Kim were very accommodating hosts. We had a few minor issues when we arrived and they took care of promptly and efficiently. Such a wonderful get-away spot. Clean and well-maintained. Fully equipped kitchen. Met and exceeded our expectations. We'd love to come back!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We came to San Jose for a long weekend to spend some time with family. Since we were traveling with a dog, finding the right place that is comfortable for all of us was very important. Without a doubt, we found it. The pool house apartment was clean, comfortable, quiet and homey. The owners, their dogs, and even the horses were wonderful and all made us feel welcome. The property, while being only minutes from San Jose, was quiet and seemed remote, more like a vacation from the busy city. With the pool, hot tub and bbq, it wouldn't be hard to stay on the property all weekend and just relax. Truly could not have been happier with our choice.

Thank you for making us feel at home. It was a wonderful trip. I hope we can return soon.
