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 was a fantastic host, and it was a delightful stay. What a perfect little getaway in the middle of Silicon Valley. I will come back!
The garden cottage was beautiful, relaxing and comfortable and Marlene was great in communicating and addressing questions. We really enjoyed our stay, and the hot tub was a plus!
Marlene was a great host. The cottage worked perfectly for my needs. It was extremely convenient, and Marlene made sure that I had everything that I could possibly need. I would love to stay here again for any future trips that I have to Palo Alto.
Marlene's cottage is spectacular! Second only to the graciousness of Marlene's attention to welcoming guests to their lovely residential neighborhood. The only thing that I wished is that I had more time to spend there. Location was convenient to a Caltrans station should the 25 min walk to downtown Palo Alto be more than you wanted should that be a destination of importance in your stay.
The vaulted open beam ceiling, the bay window looking out into a lovely garden, and, of course the hot tub that heats with a push of a button. What's not to like?
The hot plate and coffee prep space is compact and efficient. You wouldn't want to fix a family dinner in it, but you are 15 min walk from a host of delicious and varied restaurants, pubs, and wine bars.
It was relaxing, private, and comfortable. It is suburban so if you're looking to roll out onto a noisy and vibrant night seen in the evening then the quiet and calm of the cottage may not be your thing.
But it was exactly as sdvertised and executed with an attention to detail that reflected an oasis to savour at the end of a full day. For me it ws 5 stars!
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 great guest. It was delightful to host her. She took very good care of the apartment and left it in great shape. We would have her back any time. We can highly recommend her to anyone considering a reservation request from her.
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.
