Helen was an awesome hostess! She was very quick to respond to communications and accommodated us quickly when our check-in plans changed (we had to arrive very late). The place is amazing with nice touches everywhere and a true "home away from home" feel.
The place proved to be excellent in every way - Location, Premises, Facilities, Outdoors - All well beyond reproach. We would come back again.
Helen's place is a real gem in The Valley, very close to Cupertino, Sunnyvale and Mountain View. The spacious sauna is great to relax after a busy day! We'll certainly be staying here again!! :-)
The place was so secluded from the main house that it might as well have been detached and located on a different lot. The Built in Sauna was huge and perfect. Multiple large bedrooms and a huge kitchen and living room.
The outdoor area was beautiful, with a secluded deck surrounded by redwoods.
Be prepared to do your cooking on the BBQ however, there is no oven other than a little toaster. The BBQ does have a small grill for a pan that did the trick however, so as long as you know going into it what you'll need you should be fine.
The host was very hospitable and communication was great without being overly burdensome. I felt very private with my partner so no obtrusions!
I would highly recommend this place to anyone going to this area, only 40 minutes from the Big Basin national park, 20 minutes to plenty of hikes in Castle park so nothing but beautiful surroundings!
Deserves all 5 stars.
We had a great holiday at Helen's place which is very nicely located in Saratoga. The apartment was very comfortable and easy to live in with full facilities. What was really enjoyable was the terrace where one could sit and relax. Would go back there again.
