      This house was exactly what we were looking for. It was 6 blocks away from the church. It was well kept and well supplied. My favorite part was the piano. My son was able to play all of my favorite songs for me the night before his wedding. We came from Chicago and rather than be cramped in a hotel room, this was the greatest place to come to and relax at the end of the day. Cheryl was very kind and an easy person to communicate with. We would love to return some day for a vacation.
      I stayed with my teenager daughter for 3 weeks. She went to a language school 10 minutes walk from home, and went to ice skating rink 7 minutes away by car every weekdays. We went to SF for 2 weekends. We went to Santa Cruz and Muhr's Woods, too. Very convenient location! We invited our friends several times. It was so nice to eat out in the patio. The flowers were very beautiful. We enjoyed the oranges from the tree. The kitchen was well equipted, I baked cup cakes many times. I had everything for cooking and baking in the house. It is so nice of the owners to let us share their beautiful home. I would like to come back again. The only thing is that a rat came in and was trapped by the mouse trap under the sink, one time. And a little mouse was living behind the fridge and came to the dining room to say hello sometimes. I screemed when I saw them first, but my daughter liked the mouse, so we just lived with him or her.
      My family had a wonderful time at this vacation home. The neighborhood is quiet and absolutely beautiful, close to restaurants and shopping (you definitely need a car). The patio and pool area was a great place for all ages to hang out. It's very peaceful and private. Inside, there is plenty of room and you don't feel like you are on top of one another. The bedrooms are separated enough to allow privacy and are reasonably sized. All of the directions and rules from the owner were clear and the booking was easy. We definitely give this vacation home 5 stars on all levels. The only wish we had was for larger beds - the full size bed in one bedroom is fairly small for a couple, and the second bedroom had only two twin beds. This wasn't ideal for two couples. But, the inflatable bed does fit in the bedroom with the full size bed, so it was great to sleep a family with kids. Overall we had a fantastic time and we would definitely rent this home again. The kids continue to tell us they want to go back to the "Pool House" so we know they had a great time!
      My husband, daughter and I found this house an excellent place to stay for a week visiting our son in Palo Alto. The house was beautifully prepared for occupancy and very thoughtfully equipped. The space was excellent with a sitting room, dining room and the den with the desk for laptops and excellent internet connections and cable TV. The back yard was fabulous with beautiful flowers, bonsai, barbeque, spacious seating and the pool. We had friends over for a barbeque one evening and it was delightful to sit there in the evening sunshine (this was June). Our son lent our daughter a bike and she was able to take advantage of the excellent bike lanes in the area. We also enjoyed a trip down to Monteray and Carmel. The shopping street in Menlo Park had all amenities just a 5 minute drive away, and the Stanford shopping centre was just a mile further south for department stores and more places to eat. The Cal Tran station was within walking distance, but we didn't have time to get up to San Francisco. Would love to return next year!
      We stayed in this house for two and half weeks to celebrate my 40th Birthday, visit my brother and to tour Northern California. It has a fantastic location...30 mins from San Francisco, San Jose and Half Moon Bay. About 70-90 mins from Monterey. Excellent base for touring the city, coast or mountains with easy links to 101 and the Caltrain. Highly recommend a bus tour of San Francisco, shopping, whale watching in Monterey and the giant red woods in Muir Valley. The property oozes character and charm with lots of clean and well maintained original features. Do not expect a brand new home..but if you want somewhere that has clearly been well loved with a mature garden this place is for you. It is very roomy and comfortable...somewhere you really look forward to coming home to after a long day out. The kitchen is large and well equipped...very suitable for a family. The kids loved the pool and at Easter yes its cold but does warm up with some sun on it. It is also of good size and depth which was a nice surprise. There is ample garden furniture to relax on and read a nice book. The owner provides first class service both before, during and after our stay. Due to a volcanic eruption in Iceland all flights were cancelled back home for four days. The owner quickly responded and helped us to stay longer while the house was free...thus the two and a HALF weeks. This made all the difference to us as we could have been stranded..thank you Cheri! I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a comfortable and charming house that provides a good location to visit Northern California.
      We rented the house for 11 days in February. Though it was listed as having internet connection it did not and the owner would not return telephone calls. In addition the front door lock was very tricky and the gas oven was hard to turn off. The house could use some maintenance. On the plus side a nice location.
      We were thrilled with the house the minute we walked in. It was clean, well maintained and generously supplied with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The owner is very accessible and friendly. We loved the pool and had our coffee in the sunshine every morning along with the mourning doves, juncos and hummingbirds. It was a perfect place for the five of us to have our family reunion. We look forward to visiting the Bay area and staying in this home again in the near future.
      This was our first experience renting a vacation home for our family visit instead of the usual hotel rooms... it was all we hoped it would be. The house is exactly as described, very spacious, fully equipped and located in a great neighborhood. It made our stay very pleasant and comfortable. Since the weather still was nice and warm, we could fully enjoy the pool. If you're looking for a great stay in the Bay area, we highly recommend this property. We very much felt at home and are looking forward to staying here again.
