A short hike takes you to Vasona Lake Park where you, or your family can ride the Billy Jones Wildcat rail road, paddle boats and sailing on the lake or enjoy an outdoor Carousel.

Cozy, comfortable cottage in Los Gatos!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this cottage conveniently located close to freeways and shopping. The cottage is in a quiet area of Los Gatos, a lovely and well-maintained community. Great restaurants close by..we recommend Viva and Steamers, both very close. The accommodations were very clean and comfortable. Chris couldn't have been nicer! We were greeted with a loaf of chocolate chip banana bread and a bowl of welcome after a long day of driving.

It's a pleasure to recommend this property. We'll definitely stay here again next time we come through.

Wonderful home from home in a peaceful setting close to town

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this property for two months during April and May 2015. We know Los Gatos well from previous visits and were keen to be within walking distance of all the wonderful local shops, bars and restaurants. This cottage definitely delivered on that, being situated in a quiet, attractive neighbourhood about a 15 minute walk from downtown. The cottage itself was really homely and contained everything you need, and more, to have a real home from home experience, it was apparent that a great deal of thought had gone into the needs and comfort of visitors. There was plenty of space for two people. Chris was always available in case of problems/questions and although we experienced no major issues, it was good to know he was around. As a bonus, there was an attractive, shaded yard with a barbecue which remained cool even on warmer days. Super fast broadband and a really good shower are two things that always enhance your experience wherever you stay and both were excellent in this property. All in all, we had a wonderful stay and felt very much at home. I would definitely recommend this property for your Los Gatos stay.

Quiet cottage getaway

  • 4 of 5

This small but well-equipped cottage was the perfect spot to stay for several weeks so I could be close to family for a long visit. The cottage is very close to downtown shopping and restaurants, on a very quiet street, while still convenient to main streets and highways. I will definitely stay there again!

Quality stay in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We felt pampered in this beautifully appointed guest house. The owners were attentive, offering welcome baskets of food and solid suggestions on the area. The location was both convenient to our family and the thoroughfares, but the street itself was sleepy quiet. Los Gatos is a delightful destination and this property exceeded expectations.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for honoring me with your company while staying in my cottage. I have implemented all your suggestions and are looking forward to seeing you and your husband again soon. Best wishes Chris
