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.
Cottage is fully furnished for temporary housing while you are relocating, on extended vacation, or working temporarily in Silicon Valley.
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' 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.
-No pets or smoking, no exceptions (my family and other guests have allergies).
-Maximum two occupants due to compact size of cottage.
-Children under age 10 are not 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 out is no later than 11 am on the day your rental ends, although we can possibly accommodate a later departure if the schedule allows.
We enjoyed our stay, and especially appreciated Stacey's efforts to make sure we were comfortable and had what we needed. The space is very small, but remarkably well-designed, and the environment is very green and peaceful. We would definitely stay there again!
I stayed at this cottage for two months while in the area for work and it was a welcome respite from a busy work day. The cottage sits above a stream and is surrounded by trees and greenery and has all the amenities you might need for an extended stay: wifi, full kitchen, laundry, etc. The surrounding area is peaceful and quiet. There are hiking trails nearby and wineries a few miles drive away. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting the area!
I stayed at this lovely little house for three months during a freelance job. It's small, but very well-equipped with a modern kitchen, fast Wi-Fi, and very comfortable furnishings (and a super comfy bed). What makes it so special, though, is the location. It sits above a permanent creek in a beautiful woodsy setting. I'd see deer, ducks and egrets down by the creek, and an amazing range of birdlife in the huge live oaks and laurel trees (including a Western Screech Owl, a pretty rare sighting). The host, Stacey, is quick to respond to your needs.
There are lots of great markets and restaurants nearby, and the commute to tech companies is fast and easy (you can even avoid the freeways).
The hummingbirds finds their sweet nectar amongst the flowers in your wonderful garden. We found our sweet and lovely place in CA in your cottage.
We enjoyed every minute!
Everything about this great guest house - and the welcoming and diligent host - exceeded my expectations. First, the house itself is very well appointed and updated, providing for all of the amenities you'd ever want or need. As a business traveler who routinely stays at top-notch hotels, I'd choose this spot any time for a short to medium-term stay. The kitchen is very updated and comfortable, and it's nice to have separate living spaces to break up the routine of the tiny hotel room! The location is great in the Valley, and the neighborhood is quaint and scenic. The owner was incredibly responsive and really interested in my satisfaction while I was there, which was refreshing! I would very much recommend this home and would stay there again without hesitation.
I have stayed at this location multiple times over the past year, and I find it to be one for my favorite spots. The cottage is completely stand alone, with plenty of privacy. The interior is quite nice, especially the kitchen, which includes modern fixtures and cooking supplies (perfect for a long term stay). There is great WiFi so I can catch up on my work, and Dish TV just in case you need a break.
The host is incredibly accommodating, which makes it easy to communicate in case of a problem or question. The location is also central to Silicon Valley, making it easy for me to visit tech companies in the area. This is an awesome business-traveler-friendly place to stay, give it a try!
In the heart of Silicon Valley, located between San Jose and San Francisco. A half hour drive to the beach at Half Moon Bay, one hour drive south to Santa Cruz or north to San Francisco.
