The lavish furnishings, draperies, and fabrics give this an old-world feel without the stuffiness and formality. The floor plan flows nicely making entertaining easy and comfortable.

We had a family gathering for a local college graduation here which was so much more fun and welcoming than anything we could have hosted in several hotel rooms. The pool area is beyond perfect for casual meals as there are several tables and lots of places to sit in proximity the fountain that cascades into the pool. You could find no finer atmosphere at any restaurant. The grounds are lush and peaceful and the inside floor plan absorbed all ages happily. The landlord is easy to work with and very responsive. The well appointed kitchen made meal prep a pleasure. We wouldn't change a thing and are so grateful to have discovered this Shangri-La.
We rented this beautiful home for our sons wedding in Palo Alto. It was close to the hotels where the guests were staying, the Stanford Chapel (for the ceremony), and the rehearsal dinner.
We preferred a house rather than staying at a hotel, so that we could visit with our family in a relaxed setting. This house perfectly fit the occasion, including hosting the groom and groomsmen on the morning of the wedding (and the pictures from it are beautiful). The 4 large bedrooms were very accommodating for our guests - the master bedroom with the view of the pool was spectacular. We spent many nights eating dinner by the pool. The kitchen was well equipped and the house flowed very well for entertaining.
The owner was very friendly and helpful for any questions we had about the house.
We would definitely stay here again.
We booked this home for our son's graduation weekend from Stanford. We had family from England, close friends from NY and Santa Barbara attending and wished to spend as much time as possible together. This spacious and luxurious home provided the perfect retreat with every couple comfortable in their own bedroom and the beautiful pool area provided a gathering place at the end of hectic days. Saturday evening we hosted an intimate "all cook" barbecue at the house for our son and guests as well as my son's girlfriend's family and his favorite teachers, 17 in all. We had a wonderful time preparing favorite dishes together in the well equipped, large kitchen, and I cannot tell you how beautiful the three tables looked around the pool with a Stanford theme, beautiful flowers and candles, and the waterfall bubbling into the pool. When grad families were scrambling for restaurant reservations, we were relaxed and comfortable for a lovely evening of conversation, great food, and later a swim and Jacuzzi. Joanne is exceptionally accommodating and truly has made her home a welcome haven. It is well equipped, amply furnished for relaxation, and aesthetically lovely. I highly recommend this home. We look forward to staying again when our son receives his master's degree!
My friends and I had a wonderful, luxurious stay at this beautiful home. The house was quiet, secluded and elegant. The pool and hot tub were clean and awesome amenities to have. The decor was tastefully done. Furthermore, lots of care was taken to make sure that we were comfortable. For instance, there were plenty of towels, extra blankets and pillows. There were robes for us to use and even shawls for when the weather got cooler in the evening. One night, we had a dinner party with catered food for a large group. There were plenty of plates and utensils and glassware. The dishwasher was also high-end and ran quietly. The owner was incredibly flexible and understanding of our needs. We would definitely stay again and think it's the best accomodations in the South Bay.
I rented this home for a family get-together. The home was spacious, comfortable, and well furnished. It has the feel of a proper home rather than a stark rental. We very much enjoyed the well-kept garden, and the pool, hot tub, and firepit area was a relaxing, sunny spot for lounging. The location is very quiet and peaceful. Service from the owners was excellent. The owner called me back promptly after I inquired about this rental, and was available throughout our stay to answer questions.
Our family had a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend in this lovely home. Our children had a blast roaming the beautiful backyard and roasting marshmallows on the firepit. There is a large gourmet kitchen with endless supplies, 2 fabulous cozy fireplaces, huge Master suite with view of the backyard, minutes from Stanford. The list could go on and on. The owner was gracious and welcomed us with a few holiday treats. I recommend this large home for any family gatherings and look forward to visiting again soon.
