** Note: due to a longer-term summer rental, no availability between June 27th and July 31st, sorry for the inconvenience** Warm contemporary house in the heart of Silicon Valley, with succulent garden, and full kitchen and bathroom is perfect for company off-site meetings. The area is very quiet, with almost no street noise. The surroundings are very peaceful and the moment you enter the space you feel you are in your own private zen retreat with the sound of the 2 bubbling fountains, and indoor/outdoor feel with abundant natural light. There are seating / conversation areas as well as dining areas indoors and outdoors, allowing for different configurations and moving in and out freely and conveniently. The large wooden outdoor table sits 15 persons comfortably and is perfect to conduct outdoor meeting or brainstorming sessions. In addition, there are 2 lounge chaises with umbrella, a tall cocktail table with 4 rattan stools, and an inviting conversation area surrounding the fountain and gas fire pit that can accommodate 5-6 persons. There are large umbrellas to provide shade, and the space becomes more shady later in the afternoon. There is a new 28"x40" outdoor magnetic whiteboard on wheels, perfect to conduct brainstorming sessions outside, that also doubles as a flip-chart easel. There are additional 36"x48"whiteboard and a flip chart easel for inside (everything can be brought outside). There are also 2 additional tables with tablecloths in the outdoor space, a 48"x30" and a 72"x30" - these are generally used for food and drinks, but can be used for anything you need, and can be also be brought indoors for extra seating (6 and 8 respectively, but only one of them would fit inside) If desired, 8 chairs can replace the 2 outdoor benches, but those would be needed to be rented separately. The indoor space can take different configurations, as you can see on the photos. Currently, the 48" round table with 5-6 leather chairs is by the window, and the space behind the sofa is empty. The standing desk/treadmill is in the garage and can be brought back by request. There are 3 comfortable leather stools around the kitchen peninsula and 6 leather chairs around the round dining table. The 47" TV with Roku and Apple TV, bluetooth speaker, and WiFi are also included in the rental (WiFi works outside as well). There is a whiteboard and markers above the fireplace, and there is also space behind the sofa for a projector stand, to project directly to the white wall above the fireplace. I will provide you with an HDMI cable to connect your laptop to the TV in case you need to show a presentation on the large screen. You will need to bring the HDMI adapter that connects to your specific laptop. One bedroom, and an empty closet, as well as a printer, are included as well (but let me know in advance if you will need the printer please). There is ample and free street parking on the street and driveway, no need to hunt for a spot at all. The 1,535 sq ft house is on one single level, and is very easily accessible with only two short steps by the front door. Juana Briones Park is right behind the house in case a large beautiful, green, open space would be desirable for a break. Additionally, I am pleased to offer the following food and beverage packages to my corporate guests: - Beverage Package: Coffee & Tea Service + bottled water or filtered water w/garden lemon: $6 per person - Homemade Breakfast Package: Option A: organic yogurt, fruit salad, granola and choice of pastry or bagel and cream cheese spread: $12 per person Option B: scrambled eggs with choice of vegetables, ham & cheese + toast w/ butter: $15 per person *Please advise in case of allergies or specific preferences* All these options include: Tempered glass plates, mugs, silverware, napkins, serving utensils, paper towel roll, trash bags.

Marisol’s space is fantastic. The configuration is flexible, the kitchen is well equipped and she is a very thoughtful hostess. We were able to have a focused and productive team meeting in a quiet, relaxed and informal environment. Will book again.
Marisol’s house was absolutely beautiful and her backyard was the perfect place to host my cousins bridal shower!! Everyone kept commenting on how beautiful the place was and I heard a couple “take a picture of that because I want my backyard to look like this.” Lol. We didn’t need to bring much decorations because the greenery outdoors was pretty enough. On top of that, Marisol was such a great and affommdating host! Before we arrived, she had already set the table outside with the plates, glasses, and utensils, and had coffee and hot water tea available for the guests. She was really responsive and was really nice about asking us if we needed anything before she left.. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for an event space!!!!
Marisol was an incredible host, super responsive, helpful, and accommodating. She answered all of my questions, showed us where to find everything, then let us have the space to ourselves. She absolutely hit it out of the ballpark. The space itself was lovely, spacious and peaceful. Our team of 20 was concerned about sacrificing ambiance for convenience since this was right in Palo Alto, but we got nonstop compliments and had an amazing venue to do reflection and good work. The place was even better than the photos, with plenty of natural light and interesting design. The running water in the backyard was exceptionally nice. We used the grill in her backyard to create a more personal dining experience also, and it all went well. Definitely would come back here again!
Booking this house is the single best thing I have purchased/rented in my life! We rented Marisol's house to host our small, family-centered wedding in her gorgeous backyard and it was everything we imagined and more! Her picturesque garden was the perfect backdrop for us to seal our lives together forever. We brought a few things with us to decorate, but the space itself is gorgeous and doesn't need much more to make it shine! Marisol was very welcoming and accommodating to help us put and place things where we wanted so we could have our family and few close friends feel the most at home for our event. We has informal seating in the backyard that worked out perfectly with her seats around the fire pit and the picnic table. We rented some chairs and set them up on the patio looking down into the backyard to where we said, "I Do." Marisol was there to help set up day of and went above and beyond to make sure that we had everything we needed. She offered to let us borrow some tablecloths and candles for the event as well. Our caterer set up in her kitchen and appetizers were placed on the bar counter inside with a buffet set up outside. It was absolutely the perfect space for what we wanted and our guests couldn't stop raving about how wonderfully it worked out and how pretty the backyard is. The fire pit in the backyard is a gorgeous extra for when the sun goes down and it gets a bit chilly. Marisol has bluetooth speakers she allowed us to borrow so we could play music for the event. I couldn't have asked for more. Marisol is truly a kind and gracious host and I am so grateful to the experience she allowed us to have in her beautiful home. I recommend her space to everyone who needs a quiet place to relax or host an event that people will not be able to stop talking about. There is not one thing I would change about our special day and it is all thanks to Marisol.
The house is beautiful! It was perfect for our video film shoot for an ad. Marisol made it easy to book, have a smooth sailing shooting day, and even let us visit beforehand to see if the place was for us. I will definitely use this space again if opportunity comes up. Personally, I want my own house to look like this!
Marisol's house is gorgeous . Both indoor and outdoor of the house looks exactly it better than the pictures . Its a perfect place for a theme party like we had and pictures turned out to be amazing.Me and 12 of my other friends enjoyed thoroughly and would highly recommend it .
Threw my friend her bridal shower here! Since I live in an apartment in Silicon Valley, it was tough finding a space to throw it at and fortunately I came across Marisol’s house! Let me just say that the house and backyard are absolutely beautiful! And Marisol was so accommodating and helpful; such a sweet person! Thank you for making this such a special occasion for all of us!
