We live in the SF bay area and work with early-stage startup companies.
Beautiful property!! We loved the peace and quiet of the area. So much stars to see at night. There is a tennis and basketball court as well as other great amenities. Fun place for all ages. Close to San Francisco, San Jose and all the other places we needed to visit. Jennifer and Bill were very friendly and gave us our privacy!
We can't thank Jennifer and Bill enough. They were helpful, easy to talk to, generous and kind. The house is sweet. We will recommend this property to anyone.
Jennifer and Bill are gracious hosts and they have a terrific house in a peaceful setting. Since they lived in it themselves for a couple years while they built the main house, the layout works extremely well, it has a nice and fully functional kitchen - unlike some of the guest houses on this site which are converted sheds. It's convenient to 280, Sand Hill Road, Palo Alto and at the same time if you like to bike, some of the best biking roads on the peninsula (and the world for that matter) are literally right outside the door. I spent two months there and highly recommend it - it'll be my first choice to stay when I come back to the area.
Jennifer was incredibly accommodating to us during our stay. We very much appreciated having the house so well-stocked as we were there for medical reasons & the overall atmosphere of the area as well is beautiful.
Very nice stay. Nice clean house. Would be great in the summer with tennis court etc and pool!
The place is magical, situated in a middle of a forest. It was absolutely a treat. We were 4 guys and Jennifer kindly agreed for us to have good friends for dinner at Christmas. On one of the evening she even left us a bottle of wine from her own vineyard. I highly recommend this place.
Perfect choice if you want to benefit from the beautiful nature around Palo Alto while being 10 minutes away from most of your meetings. The house lies within a very beautiful property. Jennifer responds real time to any request and is totally easy going and welcoming, while respecting your privacy. I had a great stay, you won't be deceived.
Jennifer and Bill were absolutely great hosts. Their property is beautiful, and was a really great place for my startup's 3 person team that stayed for about a week for meetings in Palo Alto. The mountain setting and the relative isolation compared to downtown Palo Alto (a short 10 minutes away) were a definite plus for weary folks after long work days.
If you have AT&T-service cell phones, your signal will most likely be very weak in the area, but luckily Jennifer and Bill have a solution for this too. They'll happily install a microcell within the cottage that fixes reception issues.
We were very happy staying here, would come back no question!
Beautiful location!! Wonderful hosts. Cell and Internet service was not perfect but beautiful spot!!
I have had the pleasure of staying twice at this lovely abode seated on a sprawling stretch of vineyard. The guesthouse has clearly been dearly loved. As a result, it has a wonderful lived-in feel with nice and comfortable furniture, real plates / silverware, pots, and pans. In other words, it immediately feels like your own home...(complete with a cat that putters around the grounds passing by occasionally to check on things). Jennifer and her husband are friendly and super accommodating. Staying here is an experience. So if you crave coziness, fresh air, views to feast upon, and the magic of hearing the hoot hoot of an owl, this is the place for you.
An amazing guest! Will host him anytime. Easy to please!
