The best thing about this place is its remarkable location … . literally minutes from Stanford campus and Highway 280 … just over the hill from the Pacific Ocean and Santa Cruz/ Half Moon Bay and yet it's the most peaceful, lovely spot imaginab …
This three-room bungalow sits on the edge of a majestic view of Windy Hill and the coastal mountains that backs up to Palo Alto. The great room is great in the European sense: a good chair to read in, a sofa to stretch out on, books and a music collection, a large dinning table that anchors lively conversation late into the night and a kitchen that is fully appointed with all you need to cook grilled cheese sandwiches on a lazy afternoon or salmon cakes for visiting friends and family. If you haven’t figured it out by now my wife and I loved this little place.
Each morning a gentle sea breeze falls through the white knuckles of the fog hanging on the ridge line opposite and works it way down into the valley below and up our hill and through our bedroom window left ajar through the night just for it. If you love nature you will relish this little casita.
The place is sparkling clean, The bed is big, welcoming and firm. The sheets were ironed and crisp when we got there. There is a little room behind the kitchen that makes a good office, if you have to work but really you shouldn’t. There are hiking trails, Stanford isn’t far. And last there is the outside patio. Here big thoughts disappear into the heavens and float back as joy and the good luck and gratitude of having found such a place. And yes fresh eggs 30 steps away.
My wife and I had the pleasure of spending 16 days in Danna's cottage in Portola Valley, Ca. We were very pleased with all aspects of the accommodations from the cottage itself to the beautiful surroundings. The decor inside has a vintage antique theme with plenty of living space. There is the added benefit of a workout room and an outdoor patio area with spectacular views of the Portola Valley landscape and the evening skyline. Danna was very accommodating yet respectful of our privacy. Danna makes her famous fresh eggs available to guests on a daily basis. The location of the cottage affords direct access to miles of beautiful hiking trails right yet is close to the convenience of good shopping and dinning establishments. We have definitely marked this place as a top notch place to stay and hope to see Danna again next year.
