Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with my 90 year old Mom, spent a week in this lovely cottage. We felt like it would be a great place to "headquarter" as we did a little sight-seeing - showing my Mom things she had never seen before. We were right -- it was perfect! We were able to see San Francisco, Muir Woods, Monterey/Carmel, and even did a day trip to Yosemite. It was nice to return every evening to a nice quiet place. We enjoyed it very much!

East Palo Alto

Great Place! A Gem in Los Altos Hills.

  • 5 of 5

This is really the perfect spot to pass a few nights in the Palo Alto area if you have a car. The house has everything you might need and the owner is easy to deal with... also gives you your privacy. The area is really the Bell Aire of Palo Alto and is convenient to everything. I stayed here for an extended stay while looking for housing after a relocation. Great View, Amenities, etc. Definitely recommend. The 2nd bedroom is a gym set up... but can be converted with an air mattress if needed. Nice having two bathrooms with two showers.

We very much enjoyed our stay here. The accommodations were very comfortable,and the open living room/kitchen area with a view out over the valley were excellent. We would stay here again.

Los Altos Home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property for 4 nights and the experience was great from the time I sent the first email to the time I checked out. The owner and his assistant were very helpful throughout. Very nice accommodations as it is a guest house inside the gates of a very private estate in the hills of Los Altos. I would recommend this to anyone.
