Really nice cottage in a quiet neighbourhood, close to several restaurants, cafes and grocery stores. Very convenient location and easy access to Palo Alto downtown and Stanford. The perfect place for me to stay during my external rotation at Stanford. Pilar was a wonderful host. She and her family were very friendly, approachable and accommodating. She really made me feel welcome. The cottage is quite, private and well equipped. The space is confortable, clean and relaxing. I really enjoyed my stay in Pilar´s cottage and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place in the area!

I think I could not have found a better place to stay in the San Francisco Bay Area. It is very private, comfortable, and very well located within walking distance of a couple of supermarkets, and several nice restaurants, with very easy access to nearby freeways. And Pilar was an excellent host, always making sure that I was doing well and had everything I needed. Small details like bringing an iron and iron board the night I arrived so that I could take care of my wrinkled shirts, sending me a note to make sure that I was not going to be disturbed by somebody bringing a container to the house, or giving me a space to park my car in their driveway, while parking her own car in the street makes her a very special and considerate host. I highly recommend this place.

Pilar and Mark made us feel right at home and were very warm and welcoming. The cottage was quiet, cozy and self-contained. Everything we needed! Great property, close to downtown, grocery stores and the Caltrain. Very nice to be able to keep our bicycles in the yard. A very pleasant few days.

l rented this cottage for one month this summer for my parents to stay while visiting me. The location is ideal: walkable to stores, restaurants and public transportation (perfect as they did not have regular access to a car), and situated in a safe, quiet residential neighborhood. The cottage itself had everything they needed for an extended stay, and everything was clean and comfortable. They particularly enjoyed relaxing on the private patio, which was a great extension of the living space -- a nice bonus. Pilar is both friendly and welcoming yet mindful / respectful of her guests' privacy. Overall a wonderful stay!

Pilar was an excellent host. She went above and beyond to accommodate us and make sure we had a comfortable stay. Communication with Pilar was always easy, quick, and pleasant. The cottage was perfect for us as a young couple who needed a place to spend the evenings after work. It was very close to a huge selection of restaurants and grocery stores. The cottage itself is not terribly spacious, but the patio was lovely and we did not feel cramped at all. Overall a great place and a great host. I would definitely recommend this listing.

Pilar's guest cottage was perfect. The neighborhood is great and has easy access to everything- Whole Foods, Safeway, Sprouts plus restaurants are all walking distance. The kitchen has everything you need and the patio with a gate and fence was very helpful for our pup. I would definitely stay again.

Pilar was awesome and very responsive. The place is cute and the neighborhood is great- you're in walking distance to lots of shops and restaurants and it's a very nice, safe neighborhood. The studio has everything you need. The only thing is the internet is not so great. Pilar tried to fix it when I let her know but it was still pretty slow.
