The Space

Quaint cottage on a private estate located directly across the street from the Stanford campus. This newly remodeled cottage is the ideal place to stay while in Palo Alto. The completely remodeled kitchen includes fresh white cabinets stocked with all the cooking essentials, black granite counter tops, full size refrigerator/freezer and a 4 burner range, microwave oven, coffee maker, and electric kettle. The adorable living space, which is flooded with light and has views of the property's interior courtyards, includes a twin day bed, flat screen LED TV and a large closet. Off the living space you will find a beautifully remodeled bathroom with Carrera marble floors, and a large standing glass tile shower.

The cottage is ideally located minutes away from Stanford Shopping Center, Caltrain Station, downtown Palo Alto, Town and Country Village, and California Ave Farmers market.

Commuting is a breeze since it is conveniently situated between the Palo Alto Caltrain Station as well as the California Avenue Caltrain Station. There is also access to the free Margarite Shuttle which services both the Stanford Campus and the surrounding Palo Alto area.

  • This was a great retreat! Awesome bathroom and a great location. I'm a developer and it was great working on their pith! Also, when I showed up

  • This was a perfect home away from home for me during a Stanford reunion weekend. It's a great space with wonderful light, nice, private, and serene. Everything was clean and well prepared. Lovely kitchen and bathroom. Would definitely stay there again!

  • The cottage was sweet and in a great location. The private entrance made it easy to come and go as I needed. The amenities were lovely. The shower was wonderful. I would stay there again!

  • The cottage was clean, modern, easy to find and in a great location (very close to Stanford and shopping). The welcome gift of wine was a nice touch.

    The kitchen was well equipped. The bathroom was gorgeous, big shower, nice water pressure. Everything was very clean and up to date.

    A blow dryer for the bathroom and a toothbrush holder would have been nice.

    Parking was a little difficult because it was street parking and Thursday was difficult because of parking restrictions due to garbage day.

    Overall it was a great experience and a lovely cottage to stay in. Thank you!

  • Sruthi and her mom were excellent hosts during my stay at the Palo Alto cottage. I was greeted by Sruthi's Mom who picked fresh fruit off of a tree for me. Awesome place and a great deal! Thanks again!

  • I had a great time in this amazing apartment. Sruthi is a very nice host. I stayed in the apartment for 2 weeks. It is very clean and comfortable and has a really nice interior decoration, The location is great, too. I got a bottle of wine as a gift and a cleaner came after a week which was fantastic.

    I stayed at several places in Palo Alto so far and I can say that this was the best choice. I will definitely come back to this place the next time I'm going to stay in Palo Alto.

  • The cottage was very comfortable, cozy and walkable to the Stanford campus, University Ave. (about a mile), Caltrain and a nice grocery store (Molly Stone's on California Ave.)

  • sruthi's cottage is perfectly located for Stanford campus. It is small but perfectly formed and just right for one. There is lots of room to sit outside when the weather is fine (sadly not when I was there at the weekend, when it was really very chilly).

    The cottage was clean and tidy and Sruthi had very kindly left me a bottle of wine, m&m's and fizzy water. I would certainly return and recommend the cottage to any visiting Stanford parent (as I was).

    Thank you Sruthi.

  • The cottage was a very clean and fully equipped space, and has a great location in Palo Alto. Although I didn't actually meet her, Sruthi was responsive and made sure to check in to make sure I didn't need anything. The only downside is that it was usually too dark and chilly (and rained that week!) to take advantage of the patio seating as I was there for work. If you are in town for work and you need to work when you get back at night, keep in mind there isn't a table or desk to use in the cottage itself, though I was fine sitting at the end of the day sitting back on the day-bed with my laptop. Great space!
