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, LCD TVs in living room and bedroom, 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 stove, granite counters, new cabinetry, gel chef's floor mat, 3 kinds of coffee makers, 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.

Tranquil, cozy, serene and well equipped
I stayed at Stacy’s place for about three weeks and had a wonderful time there. The house itself was super cozy, comfortable and well equipped with everything I needed. The location was beautiful as well.. I loved the stream right outside the patio. You do need a car to get around as it’s tucked away from local ammenities, about 10 minutes drive. Stacy was very accommodating and responsive. She was a great host. I would love to stay there again and highly recommend.
Peaceful heaven in busy Silicon Valley
I stayed with Stacey while I finished grad school at Stanford. It was a great place to relax, study, and rest away from the chaos that is Silicon Valley. It would also be a perfect place to stay for a vacation, extended business trip, etc. Stacey makes sure you have everything you need, but mainly just lets you be. She's also very available in case you need her on short notice--a great host! Can't recommend this place enough.
I stayed here for a 9 week internship in the area. Stacey was very quick to respond if I had any questions and made sure that my stay was going well. The cottage was very clean and in a beautiful area next to a creek. I would recommend this cottage to anyone!
Cozy, quiet and private location
We couldn't have found a better location! This cottage is tucked away in the trees overlooking a creek. It is very quiet, clean, well stocked and private. We enjoyed having coffee on the deck watching deer walk along the creek below us. It has wonderful appliance and everything you need to make meals. Stacey was very responsive when we had a question of needed something. We would definitely stay there again.
Cozy and Peaceful!!
The pictures accurately reflect this cozy cottage. Very clean with nice appliances. The washer and dryer a real plus! We loved having coffee on the deck overlooking the creek and watching the deer walking in the creek. I would highly recommend this cottage. Stacey was very attentive and responded immediately to make sure our stay was pleasant. It is a very quiet location surrounded by beautiful trees. We loved it and will return!!
I had the rare privelige of living here for 5 months. I work in New England but my job sent me on a temporary assignment to the bay area. Stacey was a great property manager...she was available when I needed her but otherwise she lets you be. Great spot off the highway...good local restaurants, grocery store, gym,.etc. the washer/dryer combo, full granite tops with gas oven are unreal. AND, you get a great desk with a printer as well as complete satellite package. You cant notice the neighbors either, quiet as church mice
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.
