    Reviews

      We visited this past week for a family holiday and were fortunate enough to find this beautiful home. Myself, husband, two young children, and two sisters-in-law stayed there and enjoyed the backyard and the peace and quiet of the neighborhood. The owner has done an amazing job with making the house beautiful but still easy to live in. We did not get a chance to explore the area behind the house, unfortunately, which we would have loved to do if there had been more time. Running up and down the hill was a nice additional challenge to my workout. There are a couple of churches just at the bottom of the hill, if you're so inclined. Our Lady of the Wayside is lovely. The house is really clean, the beds comfortable...all in all, I would highly, highly recommend staying there - if it's available!
      We rented the home for a weekend getaway. The kitchen is truly a chef's kitchen and we really enjoyed cooking in it. The house sits high up on a hill so it's really quiet without city noise or light pollution, but it's a very quick drive to Palo Alto. The neighborhood felt quite safe. The beds were comfy and the place was clean and well-maintained. Communication with the owner was very easy.
      We found this home to be wonderfully comfortable for our group of friends/business partners. The open floor plan made it easy to engage in conversation while enjoying food and wine. The home is beautifully finished and completely outfitted for all your needs. We appreciated the wireless internet access. Unfortunately the rainy weather prevented use of the nice decks and surrounding grounds. Our group of 2 women and 5 men (all unrelated) fit in the home well: 2 women shared the king size bed, 4 men each had a bed in the two rooms, and one used a sleeping bag on the very comfortable couch in the living room. The three bathrooms made it comfortable for everyone to get ready in the mornings. The drive to the house is very winding, but easy to navigate even in a mini-van. I suggest arriving during the daylight to make it easier to do the drive and find the place on your first trip. We all really enjoyed staying at this home. If our business brings us back to the Palo Alto area, we will want to stay here again. Thank you for making this home available for visitors!
      My girlfriend and I stayed here for a couple of weeks and we can't say enough how much we loved it. It's absolutely beautiful. I recommend this place to anyone, without hesitation. Stay here, you won't regret it. The area feels secluded but you're only a short drive to anything you need. The hiking and biking trails are endless and will reward you with spectacular views. The house itself is amazing. It's the right combination of feeling like a cabin while having all the comfort and amenities of a modern house. Sit outside on the porch or the backyard and enjoy the stillness of the california redwoods. If you love to cook, as we do, then this is the place for you. The kitchen and appliances are set up for a home chef. There are a great selection of restaurants nearby but it's more fun to cook a fantastic meal while sipping a glass of wine. The bedrooms and bathroom are all super clean and fully stocked so you don't need to supply anything. This may not sound like much but trust me, it's the last thing you want to worry about when you're on a trip and it's a sign of a good host. As for the owner, she's great. She was so inviting and caring we felt like we knew her by the time she was done giving us the tour. We had no problems at all with the house but if we did I'd have no doubt the owner would have taken care of us. She also gave some great recommendations. I don't think I'm even doing this house justice. You should stay here if any of the following apply: You want a quiet california getaway, You want a distraction free place to work You love to cook You're sick of hotels and want to be someplace you can call home.
      This gorgeous house is a peaceful retreat in the hills near Stanford University and the many companies in Silicon Valley. It is perfect for vacation and business travelers for short- and long-term stays. We enjoyed the wonderful light and views of nature via many windows, outdoor decks, and the beautiful open great room with a fireplace. There are bedrooms on three separate floors, each with its own bathroom. Easy access to Stanford, Silicon Valley businesses and freeways to San Francisco, San Jose, and the beach, yet a world away from the hustle and bustle of the area with nearby walking and running paths, nature preserve, popular biking routes, horseback riding, and quaint restaurants. The property owner is easy to communicate with and very helpful – a delight! The photos and property description give a glimpse of lovely the house, property, and amenities. The house is sunny, airy, and clean and includes a kitchen well outfitted for cooking, entertaining, or just enjoying a morning cup of coffee. I hope to stay here again for both business and pleasure (family vacation, weekend with friends, and romantic retreat) and highly recommend this property. It is a gem!
