  • The Perfect getaway for a large group!

    "The River Queen exceeded all of our expectations! We had a wonderful family weekend getaway with 10 adults and 4 kids and never once felt crowded, yet it still felt very homey and cozy, and was a perfect spot right on the river. We wish we had more than just a weekend to take advantage of all the fun activities and games they provided (ping pong, pool, hot tub, kayaking, etc.) and are definitely keeping this on our list to come back to. The property management office was always very responsive to our questions and provided immediate service when we had a small toilet clog on a Saturday. Highly recommend this house for any large group gathering!"

  • Awesome retreat!

    "A beautiful retreat away from the hustle and bustle. Linda has made sure that every creature comfort of home is here. Great place to go to just get away from it all."

  • Cozy apartment in a popular neighborhood!

    "My boyfriend and I went for a week-long vacation and Cynthia was so flexible with our schedule. We arrived in San Fran around 10:30AM and she was kind enough to let us check in earlier than 3pm. I would recommend getting a car - although driving in San Francisco traffic takes a little getting used to. There are a lot of good restaurants and great coffee around the area. Try to also visit the Marina for some fun shopping!"

  • Great place to stay, awesome location and outdoor space

    "I stayed at the studio for 3 months in the beginning of 2016 and to my pleasure then we agreed to prolongate my stay for another year. Here is my opinion on the place. 1. Location is excellent. University Avenue is one block away. Center of University Avenue (e.g. Cafe Venetia) is within 15 min walking distance. Hwy 101 is a few minutes by car. So you are in the heart of Silicon Valley. And at the same time, it feels like you are miles away from any town. The house is next to a creek, so you don't see the opposite side of the road. The area is extremely green and quiet. 2. Outdoor space is far better than in other places. Before moving here, I checked a few other places in Palo Alto, and none of them had such a great outdoor space. Basically you have a big dedicated palm tree, and small table under it with two chairs. It's part of the landlords' garden, but it's the space you can use (and I happily do that). In other places I was offered a small patio space with high wood fence, which doesn't give you much. 3. The studio is small but convenient. There is a normal-size bed, enough furniture space for one person, a bathroom and a very small kitchen with a kitchen table. There are heaters inside, so no problems with cold. The studio design is pretty, there are even beautiful pictures on the walls painted by Nancy, the landlady. 4. The landlords, Nancy and Robert, are very friendly and very pleasant to communicate with. They even regularly give me some fruit from the garden, which I happily eat. There were no problems with signing the contract, and I was also given a discount off the short-term price, because we signed a long-term contract. 5. A few things that should be mentioned, though they are not a problem for me. a) There is no stove, only a microwave and a single hot plate. So it is not easy if you plan to cook dinner regularly. I usually only cook breakfast (and sometimes dinner), so it doesn't bother me much. b) Wi-fi is unstable. Very often it does not work, so I have to use cellular connection. I try to restrict Internet usage at home, so this works as a natural restriction. If you plan to use Wi-fi, you might want to ask the landlords to improve it. c) It takes a couple of minutes for the water to be heated. It's surprising if you lived in a big city before, but I got used to it very quickly. The feeling of living in quiet nature is totally worth it. Overall, it's the best place in Palo Alto for this money, I believe. 5+ stars."
