We stayed in this cottage for my son's graduation from Stanford.

The cottage was very nice, clean , had a lot of extra's you would not expect - It was very comfortable. I will stay there again any time I am in the area.

The owners are very nice, very accommodating- made us feel very welcome and did not even charge extra for the Deer in their back yard every morning for my viewing pleasure while having coffee on the deck !!

There is not one negative thing I could say star rating would really be a 10

Quiet and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cottage for 3 nights recently while visiting Portola Valley. It was clean and comfortable and even though we didn't cook while staying there, it seemed well appointed. We appreciated the bottle of wine and snacks left for us by Sarah. The only thing missing was a hair dryer, but the weather is so nice you can just relax out on the deck and your hair dries very quickly! The location is very convenient to Menlo Park and Palo Alto, and there are many good restaurants and hiking options in the area. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect spot for Stanford visit

  • 5 of 5

3 night stay was perfect for my meetings at Stanford with a stress-free 10 minute commute. Well-stocked kitchen with extras. Responsive hosts. Spacious interior, exactly as described. Nice neighborhood for walking and exercise. Would certainly stay again and recommend to others.

Gorgeous property! Wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

This was my favorite VRBO, with gorgeous views and everything needed for a comfortable 4-day stay! We added two young children to our stay last minute due to an unexpected family illness and Sarah could not have been more accommodating. Highly recommend this property!
