Separate guest house structure featuring complete privacy with a full bathroom and bedroom that includes queen-size bed, large couch, desk, armoir, TV/DVD player and bookcase. The cottage also has a full-sized fridge and microwave (but no kitchen) as well as a common area with pool table, dart board, television and additional seating/couches. Wifi is available throughout. The guest house bedroom french doors open up to the pool (heated, except in the winter) and cozy patio seating. Lemon and apple trees (take one!), and lots of green grass make for a pleasant setting. Guests can enter and leave the premises without accessing the main house.
In Los Altos, on the border of Mountain View, 1.5 miles drive from downtown Los Altos and walking distance to a shopping center with Starbucks, Chipotle, Panera, CVS, Pizza My Heart, Bagel Street Cafe, and Jamba Juice.
10 minute commute to several leading Silicon Valley hi-tech companies, 15 minute drive from Stanford, but away from any busy streets, with complete privacy and all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay.
Filip's pool house is a great place to stay. Everything is just like the picture and the description. The place is clean and neat. I had a small problem that the shower head fell off (while usable, but uncomfortable) but Filip replaced it soon enough.
I didn't want to write a review or rate this place because it means it might not be available for me next time! This place is exactly as described and what airbnb is about. By the way, I had a comfortable stay and the host provided snacks too.
Filip's pool house is just like in the pictures - a lovely, private sanctuary. I would stay there again!
I had a wonderful time in the Pool House. It was very clean, comfortable, and homey, with a television/gaming system and an awesome shower!!. Filip responded very quickly to my text messages, and his wife was very accommodating when I had some difficulties finding the place (don't travel to the San Antonio Caltrain stop and expect to find a cab!). Their place is within walking distance to small strip mall and restaurants along the El Camino Real. I will definitely be staying with them again if I find myself in the Mountain View area, and recommending my friends and colleagues to as well!
The Guest/Pool House is a great little private space to stay, and the location is pretty central as well. I was working in Palo Alto and checking out houses from Cupertino to Mountain View, so it was very convenient. I didn't need much, but Filip was very available and helpful, and had some good insights into the area for someone planning on spending more time there.
Very very nice place. An oasis in the Valley.
Filip's place was quiet and private. Great guesthouse and location (a short walk to food places, CVS and Walgreens and even a Hertz rental place). He has a common area with a pool table and darts and we had a great time ! He and his family were very accommodating and short of a bunch of expired/mouldy snacks that were left for us that my boyfriend consumed (without realizing at first they were expired), we had a great experience there. Would recommend this place to anyone without a doubt.
Had a great stay in the pool house: it is private, comfortable, and quiet as advertised. Filip is a friendly, courteous host. Would love to stay here again next time I'm in town!
Filip's place is always clean and comfy.
Filip's place is comfortable and clean. It's nice to have a secluded area on your own and you can be in and out of the house without disturbing others. Will stay again.
