Interaction with guests

We'd love to get to know our guests and have weekend breakfast or a glass of wine.

The neighborhood

Friendly people, dense vegetation that gives a rural feeling in the midst of Silicon Valley. Walking distance to grocery stores. Quiet yet central to everything. Walk to great restaurants in downtown Palo Alto

Clean, modern place in a great location. Loved being able to walk downtown. Glad to have a kitchenette and a private entrance. Was able to hear the family at some points through the door, but not super intrusive.

This is the closest I have felt to being at home when at an airbnb. When you arrive, it is a lovely home and Japanese garden, beautiful trees, parking accommodations. Inside, you have everythinig you need in a clean, well designed space. The hosts are friendly and accommodating, welcoming and yet respectful. A wonderful place and a great value.

Siddharth and Shobah's place is a modern, clean, fine-amenity spot in the heart of a quiet, yet central Menlo Park/Palo Alto neighborhood. I'd highly recommend it to a single person or couple visiting the Bay Area for business or for pleasure.

Have stayed at Siddharth's place multiple times over the last 8 months. Always a great stay. Quiet, Clean, Comfortable. Great location. Able to walk to Palo Alto through tree lined, low traffic, residential streets. Cafe Zoe, located in the center of the Willows, a short walk away is a fun place to get coffee in the morning or a glass of wine the evening. Would stay here again. Thank you Siddharth!

Siddharth User ProfileSiddharth is a superhost.

We live in the Bay Area, in the heart of Silicon Valley. We love living here - great people, culture and an outdoor lover's dream. We love exploring the neighborhood, meeting new people, hiking a different place each time (ask us about our favorites!), windsurfing - the bay area has it all!
We love to get away too. Seattle and Portland are our favorite west coast destinations. We've been to France quite a bit and love the people and the culture there, especially when you get out of the city. We have exchanged homes a couple of times with some lovely people from France, and hope to do it again.
Yoga is our favorite way to balance city life and slow down the pace. The Bay area quite possibly has the best Yoga teachers anywhere, and classes that vary from relaxing to really difficult. Ask us about our favorite Yoga teachers & studios (We have a number a short bike ride away)
Part of our desire to rent our room is to meet new, interesting people. We'd love to have a cup of coffee or (better still!) a glass of wine, and get to know you.
