Marisol was a wonderful host! She was very hospitable and wanted our production to go well. Her home is modern, cozy, and has an amazing backyard garden. I would highly recommend this place for production shoots and backyard parties.
We had our first leadership offsite here. Everything was perfect! Marisol had everything set up when we arrived. We had coffee, water and all the necessary plates, cups and utensils. Lunch arrived exactly at the time we requested. We used every space that you see on site and it was just perfect. I have used hotel suites previously and this was so much better! It is comfortable, quiet and had a great vibe...perfect for our needs. I would highly recommend the location and the host!
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!
