This is a cozy cottage that is just minutes from Stanford Hospital and the hussle and bustle of Silicon Valley. Menlo Park, Redwood City, Palo Alto are each about 10-15 minutes away. 30 mins to SFO, 30 minutes to SJC, this guest cottage is just 10 minutes off the 280 freeway. In traffic terms, this cottage is in an ideal location. It is a quiet area with beautiful trees and nature all around. Windy Hill Trail is located just behind the property and can be accessed at the top of the street.

One of the best places I’ve stayed via AirBnB in a very long time. Kristen and her family are amazing and the place was awesome. It’s a 20 minute drive from downtown Palo Alto and very quiet and surreal. Perfect place to decompress after work meetings.
