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:
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.
