Very attentive and gracious host. Took care of everything and made our team feel most welcome (we were in town for a conference at Stanford). Great coffee and even a log ready in the fireplace. Great attention to detail and simply making us feel at home...
What an absolutely beautiful and serene home Elies has. We could not be happier with our experience and we would love to come back when we are in the area. The location is perfect! It's close enough to shops and restaurants to walk and its a beautiful walk as well. Elies was also extremely accompdating and responded promptly to all questions we had. This was undoubtedly a 5 star experience and home. The only problem with this house is that we didn't want to leave! We could not have asked for a better stay. Thanks again Elies!!
Beautiful and quiet place and great location.
Amazing place nestled amongst some lovely gardens. The location is also perfect. Super quiet and relaxing.
My family and I reserved this house in order to attend my daughter's wedding in Woodside. There were six of us and the size and location was adequate for our purposes. These accommodations are very nice-and with some attention by the owner they could be spectacular. The property is lovely - the house was clean (with one glaring exception) and has a nice layout. The grounds are beautiful.
I wish I could leave a better review. Unfortunately, there were some serious problems during our visit. The lock on the guest house was literally falling off. Ants covered the kitchen counter when we arrived. (The cleaning staff was still there!) Most of the insects congregated in the kitchen and lower level bathroom but could be found in lesser numbers in every room in the house. The outdoor lights weren't working and the walk from the parking area is a bit of a hike on uneven footing. This made for a dangerous situation after dark. We were able to find the circuit box that controlled half the lights but not the other.
I suppose we could have tried to contact the owner but with all the wedding activities it seemed easier to just handle things ourselves. We managed to work around the problems we encountered and still had a great time. I hope the owner gets a new maintenance company to do the upkeep.
If you plan to rent this property I would advise you to bring a flashlight and extra light bulbs, make sure you have a supply of toilet paper with you, and don't forget a can of Raid.
Beautiful Palo Alto off University address. The property grounds are lovely. The home is very nice. Comfortable beds and has a fantastic steam shower.
Elies, thank you once again for sharing your home. Everything was wonderful.
Outstanding property - thanks Elies.
I'm just sorry we weren't here a few weeks later, the grounds are spectacular. Everything will be in bloom then.
And, the property is well located. Actually it was in a beautiful cul-de-sac with great access. And it was quiet.
The home was pristine, the beds comfortable, and the communication was great. The written instructions were also clear.
We will definitely check on the availability the next time we visit Palo Alto.
We had a very comfortable stay at Elies' home in Jan 2015. The home and surroundings are beautiful -- the pictures are quite accurate. We didn't meet Elies and he seems quite busy, but he came through when we needed a few things. Definitely recommend this place, we would stay here again ourselves.
We checked in just after the holidays and had a few bumps with them coming back in town, like not knowing when to get the keys and the heat not working for the first night there. (Palo Alto, surprisingly cold at night in January!)
Elias was great at getting the heat situation resolved and made up for the check-in issues. Overall the house was very clean, had a beautiful yard, a pampering steam shower, and all the amenities needed. Still wish I'd had time to have a meal out in the beautiful dining room. Maybe next time!
