Walk to downtown -- pet friendly. Best of Los Gatos!!!
the location was great ( Los Gatos) the cabin was very clean and well furnished. The noise from Hwy 17 was bad but it only took a couple of days to get used to it. The only real problem we had was the "blow up mattress" leaked and deflate thru the night. We would probably stay again
We stayed at two of Johns cottage during our stay, because one was not available for the whole stay. It was very painless to book both and switch between the cottages, we were even able to switch earlier, because the second cottage was available earlier. We had a good stay at both cottages, though this one also had a washer and dryer so it made it more convenient for a longer stay.
This is a relatively basic cottage with updated amenities. The bed is comfortable and the cottage is overall clean.
Since it is close to the highway, it does get loud and the windows don't block all that much noise. If you are a light sleeper, this probably isn't for you, but it was an acceptable trade off and we got used to the noise after a few nights.
It was great to find a flexible cottage that is walking distance to the city, trails and allows dogs. We would recommend staying here.
The cottage was as advertised and I had no problems. For one person I found it quite spacious. It could be called "rustic", or "basic", but it has everything you need. As other reviewers have noted, be prepared for the freeway noise, which is a bit intrusive, though I slept OK.
Cottage has all the working basics including laundry and excellent WIFI. Close to downtown amenities. John is very busy but helpful when asked. We found traffic noise very loud as this place literally backs onto freeway. Bring ear plugs or you can get them at Ace Hardware less than a block away.
This little cabin was the perfect place for a quick get away from LA. Everything we needed was provide. John, the owner, was kind, flexible, and responsive to our requests. This great place is in walking distance to any dining or shopping needs one could have. As far as the road noise, we adapted quickly and slept like babies.
I stayed with my family for two months during this summer. We greatly enjoyed our stay. The location is awesome. There are some really cool hiking trails, parks and wineries in close proximity. Downtown is just a stone's throw away and was very eventful through-out those two months.
Plus, the owner was friendly and very prompt in responding to all of our requests.
