Wonderful stay in a great location with wonderful hosts
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.
The perfect California stay
We cannot speak too highly of our kind host, AJ, who made us feel so welcome - nothing was too much trouble for him. He was gracious and friendly, and helpful in every way; it was really nice getting to know him. The cottage was delightful, perfect for four. We came with our two grown-up children from England to visit our son in San Jose for his wedding. We were ideally situated for visiting the city and the coast - we spent a day touring the 17-mile Monterey drive and another visiting the redwoods and Carmel itself. All these were within easy reach of the cottage. We would not hesitate to recommend this wonderful place to others, and indeed to visit again ourselves. Thanks for everything, AJ!
Very pleasant place to stay
I needed a quiet, convenient place to stay while recovering from outpatient surgery at Stanford. This cottage was perfect located and AJ was so kind & caring. It had everything we needed for our stay & very convenient to a drug & grocery store, restaurants and a wonderful French bakery. I hope to be able to book it again should the need arise.
Thank you for staying with us Cheryl.
Private, Quiet, Great Host
My cousin and I chose the Cupertino cottage to be our home base while attending US National ice skating championships in San Jose. The cottage was clean, spacious, well stocked and so comfortable for us. AJ, our host, was extremely helpful and informative about activities in the area and there was so much more we would have enjoyed - the skating schedule kept us busy. We would enjoy returning to spend more time exploring the area. Thank you, AJ, for making our stay the best!
Thank you for staying with us Pamela. We were honored having you as our guests.
You must stay at this wonderful cottage if you want to visit San Francisco. It's only half an hour drive to SF and this cottage is full of amenities. This place is spacious and very comfortable. There's all kinds of spices, tea and coffee in this cottage. Our host, AJ, and his lovely wife are one of the most accommodating people. If you need any information, just text him and he will make your stay much more comfortable and enjoyable. From this location you are close to the Big Basin Redwood tree park, Silicon Valley, Mountain View, San Francisco, and the 17 mile drive to Carmel by the Sea. At Big Basin Redwood tree Park, you will see the tall Redwood trees while hiking in the beautiful and peaceful park. Visit Google and Apple Headquarters at Silicon Valley. Lots of delicious places to eat and shop at Mountain View. Pack a picnic basket and take the 17 mile drive to Carmel by the Sea. There's picnic tables facing the ocean where you can lunch and watch surfers ride the waves. Once you get to Carmel by the Sea, there's lots of shopping, bake goods and places to dine at. Don't forget to visit Pier 39 in San Francisco to see the Sea Lions!! They are loud and hilarious to watch while they complain about the spot they are trying to find for their comfy nap. There's a very nice park that you must visit to hike or bike and go bird watching call Shoreline Park which is about 5 miles from the cottage. You can hike for hours there and it if a must to enjoy nature at its best!! Thank you AJ for such a wonderful vacation staying at your beautiful cottage!! We will definitely be back.
This cottage in Cupertino worked out beautifully for us. I had major surgery at Stanford, and my husband and I stayed in the cottage for about 10 days. It had everything we needed, and more. The beds were comfortable, the living room cozy (and the huge TV was a plus), and the kitchen had everything we needed. AJ was great -- very friendly and kind with many, many extra touches and kind gestures. He was quick to answer any questions we had, yet gave us our privacy. There were several nearby walking trails he directed us to, as well as a state national park to see Redwoods. We really enjoyed all of those. When I had appointments at Stanford, if they were after 9 a.m., it was usually about a 20 minute drive, which wasn't bad. We also spent a day sight seeing in San Francisco, which was fun, and not that far. I hope to stay here again! Thanks AJ!
