This architectural guesthouse is designed by the talented architect, Aaron Green, who worked closely with Frank Lloyd Wright, notably on the Marin Civic Center. It's a wonderful hideaway in prestigious Los Altos Hills, close to a nature preserve.

The space

Located in one of the nicest areas in Silicon Valley, on a meandering quiet street in the hills, it borders beautiful hiking trails Rancho San Antonio. Walk down Deer Hollow Farm, and enjoy nature's best, then zip over to downtown Los Altos with its fine dining and unique shops. With high ceilings and plenty of light, it's bright and airy, totally relaxing. . .experience a stay in a real architectural gem. A beautiful 10 minute drive to Stanford University.

The guest house has an equipped mini kitchen, a private entrance, and its own parking space. The two twin beds can be converted to a king bed to suit your needs. The king bed has a very plush pillow top and is very comfy.

There's a large private outdoor area, with teak chairs under a market umbrella perfect for al fresco dining or sunbathing. It's located in one of the finest areas of Silicon Valley, not far from Stanford University, *oogle, *acebook and many other leading tech firms. Minutes away from Palo Alto, San Jose. You may hear the rural sound of hens next door, but no roosters! Sometimes the hens will sneak out and visit us.

Amenities include: high speed wireless internet, parking, flat screen TV with a DVD player, and cable. Linens and towels are provided. We now have lots more cable channels, including HBO.


Just minutes away, within walking distance, you'll find beautiful hiking trails, with miles of hills to explore. About a mile away you'll discover Deer Hollow Farm with plenty of animals, gardens, and a historical cabin from the turn of the century. You will likely see quail, deer, bunnies, and maybe even a bobcat! There are cute clucking hens next door, but don't worry... no rooster!

Jane was generally responsive by text, very flexible around my arrival time, provided clear instructions about receiving the key, and shared helpful information about walking trails and local shopping. The Guesthouse is a great value, located in a peaceful and lovely neighborhood, and the space is well thought out and unique. There are many fans available when temperatures rise, and lots of doors and windows for increased circulation. In all, I highly recommend the Guesthouse and would happily return again.

Jane was very responsive and helpful. This is a cute guest house in a great neighborhood--I highly recommend you take a walk and explore. The guest house is simple and true to its MCM roots, with original bathroom. It's not fancy, but if you're a fan of this style and are looking for somewhere quiet and pretty to stay, close to Palo Alto, this fits the bill. We enjoyed our stay and were fine without the AC 90% of the time.

The guesthouse is located on a property in a peaceful neighborhood surrounded by lots of greenery, which makes for pleasant walks. The property is well maintained and the guesthouse itself was clean and well provisioned when we arrived. The guesthouse was spacious and easily accommodated 2 people. It was designed to allow plenty of natural light, with views of the gardens surrounding the property which we enjoyed. There is a fully furnished kitchen with a two-burner stove, toaster oven and microwave. The only thing is that you have to be careful not to set off the fire-alarm when cooking, since the fire-alarm is located near the stove. There was no one else living on the property, but Jane is very responsive over email and was prompt to respond to our request for better hot water in the shower and fix it. All in all, a rewarding stay and welcoming host!

We had a very nice stay in Jane's Frank Lloyd Wright Style Guesthouse. There was an initial mix-up but it was satisfactorily resolved. The guest house and it setting are very beautiful and correspond well to the pictures on the Airbnb web-site. We would stay there again and will recommend it to our in-laws when the come to visit our daughter and her family.

We had a very nice stay at Jane's guest house. The setting is beautiful, with mountains close by and easy access to a gorgeous park with hiking and running trails. There was no A/C but fans worked pretty well to keep it cool. Recommended for a week or two stay.

A little about us; we are all artists and I have a vacation rental that I’ve been running since 2007, so I’ll take good care of your place! Here are some of my listings:
