The cottage is really homey and the gardens are lovely… Marlene communicated well with me prior to and upon check-in and took care of all the details
Marlene is a very gracious host. The cottage is lovely and oaisis-like. Very peaceful after a long day at the office.
Marlene did a great job of showing me the place and answering my questions about the area. The accommodations were comfy and conveniently located. Woot for hot tubs and walk in shower rooms! I would stay here again.
My stay in Marlene's cottage was wonderful! So relaxing, private, and quiet after long busy days. I loved the hot tub, especially. Thanks!
Thumbs up. Love this place. Lovely flat, nice hosts, great location.
Marlene was a wonderful host. Very caring and hospitable, friendly and helpful. The cottage is located in a quiet, private backyard and within convenient distance to downtown Palo Alto and Stanford.
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.
Marlene and her lovely family where delightful and caring guests. They took well care of the apartment and left it in perfect order. One could tell, that Marlene is a wonderful and caring host herself and whenever I might go to California myself, I'll make sure to find place in her lovely cottage. Can recommend them a 150 %.
Marlene was a perfect guest, they left the house in excellent conditions. Hope to see them at Verona again.
Marlene and her friends were perfect guests,
They are always welcome!
Marlene and husband were very nice guests to host, clear communication and respectful.
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!
