Great cottage and great view!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here in Portola Valley. The location of this cottage is great, very handy to Stanford and the little shopping center at the bottom of the hill has some great restaurants and a nice coffee shop.

Cottage is clean and comfortable. Everything worked well and we had no problems. Would stay here again on future visits.

Great location and amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Two floor house has a great view to the valley, full size kitchen and balcony with a grill.

Located conveniently to Palo Alto and 280 motorway, great opportunity to get anywhere.

Area is very private and quite. There is a good shop and restaurants in the village 5 min away.

Cozy cottage nestled on the hillside

We very much liked the clean, cozy and quiet accommodation with a comfortable bed for 2. Additional space was generously provided with 2 mattresses. The kitchen is well equipped. Location is excellent. Host is very friendly and always in reach.

Beautiful vacation rental. We were happy and comfortable the entire length of our stay. The property was cheerful, clean, and comfortable as well as luxurious with great energy. The view was gorgeous. The kitchen is downstairs, separate from the bedroom/living area and had everything we needed and more to make meals. Sarah was a wonderful hostess, we could not have dreamed of better accomadations and certainly plan to stay there again. 5 stars all the way! Thank you so much!

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this fabulous property when we were in the area taking our daughter to college. The location, accommodations and neighborhood could not have been more perfect! We loved the view and the proximity to darling markets and restaurants. The communication with the homeowners was outstanding and they could not have been more gracious!
