                                                            Friendly, nearly invisible hosts provide a sanctuary-like, separate efficiency cottage close enough to Palo Alto for a walk and far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. A friendly dog and the soft cluck of chickens, round out the experience of tranquility.

                                                            Another wonderful stay at the garden cottage

                                                            Just returned from my second stay at Limky's cottage. It's such a lovely spot, and Limky and her husband couldn't be more gracious hosts. This has quickly become our favorite place to stay when we visit Palo Alto. Already looking forward to the next trip!

                                                            Lisa we love having you. You have such a warm heart. You are always so positive and loving. I feel bad I forgot to give you honey. Next time you are here we will extract the honey together for you and Peter. Thanks for staying with us we are so fortunate to have wonderful people like you.

                                                            Delightful backyard cottage!

                                                            Limky's cottage was perfect for my husband and me during our recent visit to Palo Alto. It's a lovely studio with a small (but very functional) kitchen in a beautiful backyard space behind her house. The backyard itself is a real treat - with a chicken coop, doves, and even a bee house. It was like being on a small farm. We absolutely loved the space, both inside and out, and the neighborhood is gorgeous. Beautiful homes to admire, and easy walking distance to both the California Ave shopping district (5-10 minute walk) and downtown Palo Alto (30 minute walk). Limky and her family were warm and friendly and made us feel very welcome. She even provided a standing fan for us, which was much appreciated in the hot weather. I've already booked another stay and am looking forward to going back.

                                                            Perfect little guesthouse near Stanford campus

                                                            I was attending a conference at Stanford and stayed here. Comfy bed, big refrigerator, nice shower and stores and restaurants nearby. Perfect!
