About the Property

350 Sq Ft, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom with gourmet kitchen

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

Current availability: Dec 11th to 30th, 2016 - then again after March 4, 2017.

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.

Cottage is fully furnished for temporary housing while you are relocating, on extended vacation, or working temporarily in Silicon Valley.

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' 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.

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 (my family and other guests have allergies).
-Maximum two occupants due to compact size of cottage.
-Children under age 10 are not 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.
-Check in is at 3 pm, check-out is noon.
