I have lived in Palo Alto for 40 years and know the area well. I am happy to answer any questions you may have about my cottage.
Marlene and Jeff were once again superb hosts! A repair was required, and they were quick and responsive to taking care of it, with smiles and an offer of cappuccino coffee - Now what better service and kindness could one want?!?!
As previously stated, this place is perfect for all of my wants and needs. Do not hesitate to book here (just not when I want it : )
I described this cottage to my colleagues as my Swiss Family Robinson tree house because it felt like a cabin in the woods - peaceful and charming. Marlene is a great host and that tub is pretty killer. Great location right off of a main drag in a great neighborhood. Thanks Marlene!
Each time I stay here, it feels ever more wonderful. Completely and highly recommended!
I'm no stranger to staying here, as it is my favorite place to stay when I'm in Palo Alto. Marlene is an impeccable hostess, providing snacks, milk in the refrig for my coffee, colorful lights on the patio, plus a clean, cozy, comfortable space. Staying here is truly a wonderful experience to which I look forward.
Very nice. The big japanese (?) bathtub is very nice, too. Nice living room, comfy bed, nice bathroom, very small but serviceable mini-kitchen. All-round great experience. I will return upon my next visit to Palo Alto.
I could not be happier, staying at Marlene's cottage. Everything optimized the sense of hospitality I enjoyed - from the outside "magical" patio lights to the lovely sound of the garden fountain, including the milk, almonds and oatmeal left for me. I left feeling nourished in all ways!
Excellent place, excellent host. Recommended++
This was my fourth time staying at this garden cottage. It continues satisfying ALL of my desires for comfort, serenity, privacy, and a touch of nature & whimsy (via the lovely garden). I will happily be back again!
Everything about this experience was a treat! I was attending a conference at Stanford and thought I would take the shuttle everyday, but since Marlene's cottage was a nice walk to campus I chose that instead. The cottage was very comfortable and well stocked with all the amenities as well as that wonderful hot tub. Marlene is also a movie buff so I was thrilled to have many to choose from. As well, she is a world traveller and a great conversationalist. This was my first time using airbnb but now I'm spoiled!
Staying at Marlene's cottage continues to be a beautiful experience. As I type this comment, it reminds me to book again for the coming months. This place remains my cherished "new home" in Palo Alto. I could not be more grateful.
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!
THE PERFECT GUEST!!!
thank you very much to Marlene and his husband, because they are very clean. I trussed the house in perfect condition, clean tidy.
Marlene was very precise in e-mail communication.I highly recommend as a guest everywhere.
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 !!!
VERY NICE PERSON, i WISH THAT COME BACK IN BARCELONA ANOTHER TIME IN ONE OF MY APARTMENTS.
TANK AND WELL COME TO YOUR HOUSE MARLENE
