The Neighborhood

The cottage is walking distance to Vasona Lake Park with activities for runners, bicyclists, hikers, and skaters. 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. A few minutes away is Saint Josephs Hill trail for mountain biking, jogging and hiking.

The cottage is a five minute walk from the trailhead for the beloved Los Gatos Creek Trail for hiking and biking. Nestled at the foot of the Santa Cruz Mountains and a perfect gateway to all of Silicon Valley. The Town of Los Gatos is a wildly popular destination for everything from museums, the arts, nightlife with dancing and fine dining, to outdoor activities. The summer months feature two famous free concert series - Wednesday night Jazz on the Plazz and Sunday afternoon Los Gatos Music in the Park. Both are within walking distance from the cottage.

Quiet and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

This was a good place for us, because I came for a surgery at Good Samaritan Hospital. It is a ten minute drive to the hospital and near the downtown for groceries or restaurants. The king sized bed was comfortable, as was the couch. We appreciated the welcome and thoughtful gift of fruit when we arrived at midnight! The kitchenette was nicely stocked with spices and condiments. The bathroom could use an upgrade in the near future.

Cozy cottage and a great location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a month and enjoyed our stay. The cottage is compact but certainly has everything you need and the area is so nice; it's a very quiet location and is walkable to downtown, trails, etc. We were welcomed with a bowl of fruit plus some delicious banana loaf and the couple of minor problems/questions we had were promptly attended to. We would definitely recommend this place to one person or a couple.

Just right

  • 4 of 5

I would definitely recommend this to family and friends who are looking for some of the amenities (laundry, kitchenette, etc) of home but easily accessible by car to the Bay area and beyond and for walking into charming Los Gatos with its restaurants and trails. This is a very accessible, comfortable place to return to and Chris was very attentive to 1-2 needs while there.

This was a lovely place to stay. The small cottage is perfect for one person or a couple. It's quiet and private on a side street near a main artery of Los Gatos. It is within walking distance of downtown. Chris has been very thoughtful in his furnishings and amenities. I will definitely be back!
