A PEACEFUL MODERN CREEKFRONT COTTAGE IN SILICON VALLEY

Labarthe Cottage Rental Photos and Description

350 SF, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom with gourmet kitchen

~ Please check calendar for availability ~ it is kept up to date ~

*** New for 2014 - new QUEEN size Westin Heavenly Bed AND new laser printer under desk with USB connector.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Renovated one bedroom backyard cottage perched above the bank of a year round creek - centrally located in Los Altos between Mountain View and Palo Alto between Foothill Expwy and 280.

Available fully furnished for temporary housing while you are relocating, on extended vacation, or working temporarily in Silicon Valley. If you visit the area repeatedly during the year, you can stay in the same home away from home every time.

The cottage is surrounded by private decks overlooking the creek and wooded setting, and includes outdoor dining furniture. Feels worlds away, yet walking distance to shops and food. Work in nature using the wifi with your laptop while you sip your coffee at the outdoor dining table overlooking the creek. Or come home from a day at the office, and relax in nature with a nice glass of wine. Sightsee all day and return home to your own little quiet, private retreat with all the comforts of home.

Amenities include a programmable DISH Network DVR, 37' LCD TV, and both wired (CAT5) and WIFI internet connections. If you send me a recording list ahead of time, you'll have your shows and sports games waiting for you on the DVR. We also provide an HDMI-to-HDMI cable if you wish to play anything from your laptop or internet on the flat screen TV.

Gourmet kitchen with new stainless fridge with filtered water, new gas convection stove, instant hot water dispenser, granite counters, new cabinetry, shock absorbing gel chef's floor mat, and all the cookware and gadgets you could ever need. Also close to pizza and other delivery/takeout if you don't want to cook. Have your own full size, brand new front loading washer with dryer too.

Furnished as shown in the photos. The bedroom has a Queen size 'Westin Heavenly Bed' (new) with linens and towels provided. The chaise couch expands to create a second queen-size bed in the living room with a second set of linens also provided. It is a cozy and extremely functional 350 SF with every inch utilized. Also includes desk, dining table, and two dining chairs. Some extra storage space available in loft above main house garage if needed.

Located close to Foothill Expwy, 280, 85, very convenient to commutes or cycling. It's a straight shot up Shoreline to 101 or Google, or you can take Foothill Expwy directly to Stanford and research parks.

Includes 1 dedicated carport parking space for renters.

'Fine print':

-No pets or smoking, no exceptions (we have allergies).

-Maximum three occupants due to compact size of cottage.

-Children under age 10 may not be appropriate due to natural hazards of creek and elevated decking.

-There is no available parking other than the one dedicated space and the setting is in our backyard down a privately-owned road among neighbors who value their own privacy. For these reasons, our rental agreement states that the rental is for the named renters' use and enjoyment only and no additional visitors.

-Check in is at 3 pm or later on the day your rental starts, although we can likely accommodate an earlier arrival if the schedule allows.

-Check out is no later than 11 am on the day your rental ends, although we can likely accommodate a later departure if the schedule allows.

Cozy cottage with modern convenience

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 10, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
Wake up to the sound of the birds chirping and the flow of a nearby stream and you'll have found a little bit of heaven tucked away from the hassle and bustle of California. Although small, every bit of space is used to the optimum with all the modern conveniences except a dishwasher. I wouldn't recommend to parties larger than three. The owner was very supportive to her guests and helped make our stay enjoyable. It's central location was a imajor plus.

A Wonderful Place to Stay with a Gracious Host

I stayed at this cottage for two weeks during a work project, and it was an absolutely lovely experience. The cottage itself is just as it seems in the pictures, and the kitchen is even better than you might expect. It was easy to relax after a days work, and includes all the comforts of home. The host is gracious and accommodating, and I would definitely stay here again in the future.

4 weeks stay during Christmas time

Wonderful cottage and nicest host ever! The owner had set up a christmas tree for us to feel at home. Great location in a very quiet and beautiful environment. We stayed three adults for most of the time and it has been perfectly manageable. We would highly and warmly recommend it to friends and family and we will definitely come back!

The Perfect Short Stay Home

My Husband and I stayed in this place as we relocated awaiting our house to be ready. This was the perfect place to stay. Everything is modern, clean and well thought through with Wi-FI, TV, Printer and everythign you would need for the kitchen. We cooked our own meals and ate out when we needed to since there are so many options close by. The owner is courteous and very professional, easy to reach and very responsive with any questions. The neighborhood is secure and the place is all ADT secured for added peace of mind. The Place is beautiful, the pictures are exactly how it looks and much more when you actually see it. This was a Perfect stay.
