Newly renovated 3bd/3ba home in lush, forested Portola Valley: just a scenic 10-15 min. drive to Stanford University, Palo Alto and I-280.

Enjoy the vast outdoor deck, cozy up by the fireplace, take in the towering trees through the home’s beautiful picture windows or simply relax in the clean, modern, fully furnished space. Portola Valley’s renowned trails overlooking the San Francisco Bay are conveniently located just 100 paces away.

*Private, downstairs garden apartment rented separately.

The space
This luxury rental in the tranquil Los Trancos Woods/Vista Verde neighborhood of Portola Valley is perfect for couples, groups and those traveling for business who prefer a fully equipped, quiet home and the best of California’s gorgeous outdoors to a pricey hotel room. It’s also ideal for families looking to book a comfortable, spacious stay while visiting Stanford or attending graduation.

The house is on two, expansive levels—the upstairs of which (pictured above) is a separate, private space. The front entrance to the primary living space is located off of the broad, main deck, accessible via the wide staircase visible from the driveway. The back entrance off the back patio is accessible along a level path through the trees. Upon entering the space, you’ll find a modern, open-concept living and dining area with brand-new furnishings as well as a beautiful kitchen fully stocked with cookware and dinnerware for making meals at home or entertaining.

Down the central hall, sleeping accommodations for up to five guests upstairs include: a master suite (queen-sized bed) with large spa bath, walk-in closet, outdoor shower, gas fireplace, built in desk space, access to the back patio and private entrance; a guest suite (queen-sized bed) with wall-to-wall views of the outdoors, a private bathroom and separate entrances from the deck and driveway; and a bright office space with a twin-sized day bed and full guest bath across the hall (also handy for guest use).

There is a new washer and dryer unit located in the hall closet.

*Please note that the upstairs level of the home is only accessible to you and your guests. The garden apartment downstairs (which accommodates up to two guests) rents seperately and may be occupied during the time of your stay. However, it is a private, independent space from the upstairs.

Guest access
Guests have full use of the main deck and back patio as well as a rooftop terrace accessible via a spiral staircase.

The kitchen is fully stocked with cookware, dinnerware, utensils and stemware for your use, as well as dishwasher, coffee maker, microwave and toaster.

There are additional towels and washcloths in each bedroom closet.

Other things to note
*Please note that the upstairs level of the home is only accessible to you and your guests and is a private, separate space from the garden apartment downstairs, which could be occupied during the time of your stay (accommodates up to 2 people).

Due to our location in the beautiful woods, cell service is limited. We do have strong hi speed WiFi to connect all of your devices.

Please be mindful of the outdoor steps, especially with little ones or those who have trouble traversing stairs. If stairs are a concern, there is alternative parking on the same level as the master suite with access to the back patio. From the back patio, guests can enter the upstairs space with only a couple of steps.

We are a family of six who love to collect new experiences and host guests from every walk of life. Jacob and I have roots in New Orleans and Oakland but now call the peninsula home. On a warm evening, we love the peacefulness of our back deck, taking in the tall Redwoods under a canopy of stars. We hope guests leave this place with a sense of the magic of these woods and a desire to return.
