The space

My 800 square-foot condo is part of a 4-unit building in downtown Palo Alto. It's cozy, tastefully decorated, and full of light. One bedroom has a queen bed and the second has a trundle bed that can be used as a single twin, two twins, or a king bed.

There is high speed wifi internet and a large tv with cable, including HBO. Keurig coffee maker and washer/dryer are some of the comforts of home that are available.

Clean towels will be provided and both beds will be made up with fresh linens.

My home is in an area with lots of restaurants and a few bars, but it is unusual to hear any noise from people on the street. You can sometimes hear Caltrain, but it is not bothersome and the transportation option close by is a huge benefit.

Street parking in the neighborhood is readily available in the evenings and on weekends. The detached garage is also available.

Guest access

This is a second floor unit, with stairs up from the street level.

Interaction with guests

I will likely not be around, but I am reachable by cell phone if you want any advice about the area or if you need anything at all.

There is a code lock on the door, and I will send access information in advance of arrival.

The neighborhood

Palo Alto.

Restaurants, shopping, Stanford all within a two block walk. It doesn't get any better than this.

Getting around

One of the highlights of this location is that public transportation is less than two blocks outside the door: Caltrain, Stanford Marguerite shuttle. It is easy to get to San Francisco, any of the local airports, Stanford, etc. I am happy to help.

Other things to note

This is one of the only homes in the area with central air conditioning. In the heat of the summer, it will make your stay much more comfortable.

One of the better values I've ever found on AirBnB. Laurie's place is spacious, comfortable, and perfectly located to University Ave and transport. We stayed for 8 nights while I was in town on business and my family joined for some California time. Everyone was happy and comfortable. A 100% score.

Laurie was a great host and while we didn't meet her she made sure everything from check-in to check-out was taken care of. The room is spacious with the amenities as described. It was also clean,cozy, and was very conveniently located near downtown Palo Alto. Would recommend staying at Laurie's!
