Marlene's cottage is absolutely lovely. She takes great pride in it, and it shows. It is fully-equipped, secluded, and close to main arteries in Palo Alto. The pictures are very accurate, and Marlene herself is a wonderful host. I highly recommend this property.
A quiet, relaxing, and surprisingly spacious retreat. An accommodating host, whose intuition for hospitality shows in the way the space is set up in anticipation of her guests' needs. Would definitely recommend.
Marlene was a lovely and considerate host, she was flexible about my arrival and leaving times and made me feel very welcome. The cottage is absolutely charming, set back from the main house in a beautifully characterful garden.
The photos give you an extremely accurate picture of the cottage, except they don't show the awesome walk-in shower just next to the hot tub. The bedroom is a good size, too, so it felt extremely roomy for one person and great value for money.
The house is in a really pleasant, quiet neighbourhood, and the shops and restaurants at South California Avenue are about a ten minute walk away, as is California Avenue CalTrain station (which was handy for getting back to SFO airport.)
In case internet access is important to you, the cottage has its own router and the internet connection was extremely fast and reliable throughout the entire stay.
The cottage is homey and well appointed, in a lovely gardens setting. It's traditional, not contemporary . Marlene provides all the essentials and some nice snacks. I really enjoy the spacious shower and hot tub room.
Thumbs up. Love it here.
Great stay at this cozy cottage. Marlene was a very welcoming host and made sure I had everything that I needed during my time. Perfect place for business trips. Thanks so much, I'll be back!
Marlene was a lovely and welcoming host. I would absolutely recommend her and her cottage for future guests. Thank you Marlene!
This cottage truly is in a lovely garden. It has a lot of character and feels very homey. The cottage is private and the bed is very soft and comfortable. I had to arrive late and Marlene communicated with me quickly and was very helpful in this regard.
Another pleasant stay. Was sad to leave this peaceful place.
This was my second time staying in this garden cottage. As I expected: an oasis of calm. marlene is a kind and friendly host. Highly recommend!
Marlene and her sisters were absolutely delightful, spirited, fun and loving siblings! They were raring to go to explore and share all that the Hudson Valley had to offer. They were super communicators and left the house spotless! We are hoping that they will choose to come back again so we can really show them the sites, especially the beautiful walking trails and join them in some belly laughs and local adventures! Come back soon!
It was a pleasure to host Marlene. She was great at keeping in touch and I would not hesitate to host her and her family again.
A Pleasure...please don't hesitate to Host.
Marlene is a lovely guest, very clean and friendly. Very nice to talk to and I hope she will one day return. I recommend her as a guest.
Marlene is the perfect guest! It was a pleasure meeting and hosting her and I look forward to ever staying in her garden cottage in Palo Alto. Always welcome again in Bruges!

Marlene and her family stayed in our apartment in NYC for 8 days during the Christmas holiday. We found them to be wonderful guests that cared for our apartment while we were gone. We returned to a very tidy apartment and would welcome them back anytime. No complaints at all!
Marlene and Jeff are both very kind and it has been a pleasure to have them in our flat. They're welcome back whenever they want !!!
