“A Real Gen in the Valley”
Reviewed January 20, 2017 for a stay in November 2016

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!! :-)

“Relaxing Sauna in the Redwoods....”
Reviewed January 2, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

person found this review helpful

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.

“Wonderful stay”

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.
