Wonderful stay in a great location with wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

The Keval Cottage was absolutely perfect for our stay. Conveniently located in Cupertino, the cottage was perfectly situated for our sightseeing trips in and between San Francisco and Monterey. AJ and Lubna were most gracious and kind. The cottage was immaculately clean and comfortable with plenty of space for our family of four including 2 teenagers. The kitchen was well-stocked. They even had milk in the fridge, some breakfast cereals and fruit which helped since we arrived late and could not go grocery shopping until the next day. AJ was very responsive to all of my questions before and during the stay. I could go on and on about how wonderful everything was. My only regret was that we didn't have any "down time" and were not able to just relax and enjoy the beautiful garden and peaceful setting. I guess this just means we'll have to come back some day! Thank you, AJ and Lubna, for providing such lovely accommodations and for your genuine hospitality.

Cottage Was Perfect for Our Family of Four

  • 5 of 5

My family of four (two parents and two teens) enjoyed our stay at this cottage in Cupertino. AJ and Lubna were terrific hosts that went above and beyond. When we arrived, a card, bottle of wine and four biscotti cookies awaited us. Our hosts also allowed us to use their laundry machines do to a couple of loads (we had just finished an 8-day RV trip), and they offered several local suggestions.

The cottage itself is accurately described in the posting. It is large with two sleeping areas and plenty of space. We enjoyed using the well-appointed kitchen and relaxing on a small patio outside the main living space. The upstairs bedroom can get warm during the day, but sleeping is not an issue if one uses the in-room AC and fan.

The cottage sits behind the main house, but privacy was never a concern. Our hosts were accessible, but not visible.

Lastly, the location was great for us. It is close to Stanford and other attractions in Silicon Valley, and getting to downtown SF by car or public transportation is easily done. While the cottage is in a residential neighborhood, grocery stores, shops and restaurants can be reached within minutes by car.

The bottom line is that we enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.

Comfortable cottage in a convenient Silicon Valley location

  • 4 of 5

Friendly hosts, spacious and clean cottage. Excellent proximity to freeway, shopping, and Silicon Valley companies. Well-equipped. Quiet - liked the private outdoor deck. Convenient parking. It would be nice to have some of the "stuff" in the cupboards cleaned out so there is more room for guest's requirements. Otherwise all good!
