Newly constructed home overlooking Stanford, Palo Alto hills
This modern 2 bedroom guesthouse is well situated on a 3 acre property just minutes from Stanford University /Hospitals and Palo Alto. Close to I-280 for easy access to San Francisco, anywhere in Silicon Valley and entire Bay Area.
" Ideal base for exploring the San Francisco area. The location was peaceful."
Cantilevered over the oak-studded hillside, this cedar and glass home has a resort feel. It was designed and constructed from scratch in 2014 to the highest quality standards, sporting 9 ft ceilings and expansive windows and sliding door to deck and outdoor bbq area. Watch the deer and wildlife from indoors or out.
"We especially enjoyed watching the bird life in the surrounding trees, including an eagle owl asleep in the tree outside our window one morning."
Take advantage of the well stocked, state of the art kitchen with marble counters, and living area. Wi-fi (~50mbs) allows you to stay connected. You will also have a television with DirecTV service.
Relax in a large master bedroom with extensive windows and reading area.
The second bedroom has a trundle bed with 2 single beds that can be combined to create a king and office area with desk.
"We enjoyed the quiet location after the hustle and bustle of San Francisco."
"The furnishings are very high quality and we really liked the beautiful shower."

We moved to the Bay Area about 25 years ago to join the tech world. We stayed because it's a bit of paradise, with the intellectual power of Stanford University, the sights of SF, endless creative and cultural opportunities, dramatic landscapes and fresh California cooking style that builds on a full range of ethnic cuisines.
Goldband purchased this House in 2014

Enjoyed the guesthouse
Thanks for a wonderful stay at the guesthouse. The kids really enjoyed the deer and the tennis court access!
Quiet, peaceful stay
The perfect place for us while a family member went to Stanford Hospital. Location couldn’t be more perfect - about 10-15 minutes from Hospital. It has a rural feel with lovely view. We found it restful and restorative after hectic days. Owners were easy to work with and location was easy to find. It’s located close to walking trails and (15/20 minutes) to Filoli for beautiful walks, as well. Small suggestion for the Goldbands would be a couple more kitchen towels and wash clothes for people staying longer periods of time. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
This place is a real oasis: quiet, serene and beautiful. The cottage is set a few hundred feet from the road, and every window has a lovely view of oak trees. We didn't have time to use it, but the tennis court is high-quality.
The unit was very clean and looks brand new. Nice kitchen and roomy living room with high quality TV and plenty of channels. There is only one chair to eat at the kitchen table, which is a little odd, but it's easy enough to move the desk chair from the second bedroom for two people to eat sitting down. And of course in nice weather, which was 100% of the time we were here, eating out on the deck is comfortable for four people.
The bed in the larger bedroom is only a double, so a 6-foot man and larger woman might feel crowded. The day bed in the second bedroom was very comfortable for a single person.
The bathroom is beautiful.
A couple of things that would make this place even better: a reading light over the day bed, coffee and creamer for mornings, soap for the sinks and the shower, washcloths, and maybe a few extra towels. There was only one each for the three adults in our group. Also a mirror in the smaller bedroom would make it easier to get ready in the morning if somebody has commandeered the bathroom ;-)
And a word of warning (which our host also gave us): Some navigators, including WAZE take you to the wrong house. Be sure to give an Uber or Lyft driver specific instructions, or you may be waiting a long time for a ride!
Clean, new, bright and airy!!! Would definitely stay again!!
Wonderful retreat. We"ll be back.
Beautiful location and guest home. Very thoughtful hosts.
Perfect location for business traveler
Loved this property. Super convenient to Palo Alto. Comfortable space with gorgeous views. There were several nice restaurants and a small grocery store within 2 miles, as well as access to walking trails. The owners were informative and communicated often during our stay to make sure all was well. I will definitely stay again!
