The space

In the country side of Silicon Valley, Portola Valley is a perfect get-away: nestled in the foothills close to Stanford University, Palo Alto, the Sand Hill VCs, the rest of Silicon Valley including premiere hiking, biking and running routes that overlook San Francisco Bay and the Pacific. From here it is an easy peaceful drive to San Jose (south) and San Francisco (north) along design-winning Highway 280. Stanford University is about 10- to 15-minute drive due east. It is 20 miles to Levi’s stadium (Superbowl 2016).
•Our private cul de sac property sleeps 10+ including a separate guest house and offers stunning views looking out over the bay and peninsula.
•The house is located on several acres of land with fruit trees (e.g., apples, pomegranate and persimmon), a small vineyard and private garden (e.g., tomatoes, squash, herbs and lemons).
•There are 5 bedrooms and 5.5 baths in the main house and 1 bedroom / bath in a separate cottage; sleeping 10+ comfortably.

This magical home is perfect for family vacations and business travel; as there are plenty of private outdoor and indoor spaces for sitting, working and relaxing. It is located at the top of the hill of a quiet cul de sac street with connected running trails throughout the most peaceful and private portions of Portola Valley. Often you see deer, hawks and other wildlife. It is a couple minutes down the hill to local Portola Valley shopping (e.g., Bianchini's Market in Ladera Shopping Center to the left and Robert's Market to the right).

Our stay was one of the best I've had with Airbnb. The owner was so sweet and helpful, and the home was perfect for our week long business trip. The grounds were our favorite part. The pool and views are just incredible. I spent quite a bit of time in the evenings just walking around the grounds, recharging after a long day. Check it out. You won't be sorry.

Fantastic location; great house! 6 of us stayed there very comfortably. Leigh was extremely accommodating and helpful. Her communication was always prompt. A door swung shut & locked us out of the house - I had an answer within 30-sec on how to get back in. Tech in the house is great. Plenty of TV's in every room, good WiFi, Amazon Echo & (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Home devices, surround speakers in family room... requires a little tech savvy to operate, but we had no problems. Super-comfortable stay! Thank you!

Overall I had an excellent experience. Leigh was very friendly and quick to respond. The house was beautiful, clean, and better than the pictures. Would love to stay here again next time I'm in the area.

Leigh User ProfileLeigh is a superhost.

Jack and I travel a great deal and find it much more fun to rent from locals rather than big hotels. We enjoy perks like bikes, kitchens, American-sized coffee, privacy, new experiences and local color. We have a few properties and find it fun to share experiences like we had with others.

We are 50-something professionals with grown kids and time for recreation. We love the outdoors, good food, arts and culture and live in a stellar part of Northern California that has all of that and more.

Our properties tend to have wonderful views and are very close to renown hiking / biking venues. Feel free to ask for tips on hiking trails, bike routes, restaurants, night life and more.
