Description

The space

This is my home, but I am away from my home a lot - so when I'm traveling it is listed on here.

My house is located in the awesome Willows neighborhood of Menlo Park - close to downtown Palo Alto, while being convenient to commute routes. really the perfect location if you're visiting Silicon Valley or Stanford university.

This neighborhood is incredibly quiet & peaceful being less than a mile - a nice walk - from downtown Palo Alto.

It's a great house - the kitchen is awesome, Viking range, etc. Living room with large TV & audio system. Bright pleasant living/dining room. Master bedroom is spacious with a queen bed. 2nd bedroom is also large with a twin bed - it's set up as a kid's room, with a small table. 3rd bedroom has a queen bed and doubles as an office.

There's a nice little backyard with outdoor sitting area. it's surrounded by trees and has a nice quiet peaceful feel - great for a work space, or reading & relaxing.

Excellent place! My wife and I had a great stay with our two kids (ages 2 and 4). Nice yard with space for kids to play and run, great falafel restaurant and neighborhood park both a couple blocks away, nice grocery shop (Willows Market) a few more blocks away, house had everything we needed for a 3-week stay.

A cute home in a lovely, safe neighborhood. We very much enjoyed our stay at Brent's cozy house. Though we felt the home is showing some wear and tear from being an active rental, overall it's a very livable and comfortable space with a nice floor plan. The house is in a great neighborhood for walking and the home feels private as it is tucked behind a nice hedge and some lovely plants in the front yard. We also appreciated that the house was very toddler friendly.

The location of Brent's house is very good, close to highway 101 and also Palo Alto and Menlo Park center, but still in a nice and quiet neighbourhood. It was also close to the skatepark, basket ball and base ball field where we spent many evenings with our two 7 years old boys. The garden was small but very beautiful with flowers and trees, and also a tree house. Brent was very nice person and answered all our questions at once. One drawback for us was the lack of cable tv.

Brent's place was awesome! I stayed with my wife and two small children and it felt like staying at a better version of home. We only live in a condo in a cold climate, so having a beautiful, lush green yard and a blooming magnolia tree was fantastic. The tree house in the back yard was icing on the cake. Brent's place is well laid out with three large bedrooms, a modern kitchen with high end appliances, and parking is available out front. There was a playground for our kids just a five minute walk away. Downtown Palo Alto was only a 20 minute walk away with all the shops and restaurants you could need and there was a local grocery store that was a little over five minutes away, but had smaller selection. An unexpected benefit of Brent's home was how close it is to the 101 highway to get around Silicon Valley. I was visiting a lot of local startups from Redwood City to Sunnyvale and they all took 10-15 minutes to drive to which saved me a ton of time. I was even able to walk to HQ, though I suspect I was the first person to ever do so (dicey sidewalks on a pretty major road). The entire checkin process was remote, and Brent always replied to our requests within an hour. Thanks Brent for a great stay!

The location was perfect, close to highway 101, but very quiet. Nicely furnished house, beautiful garden. Brent was very helpful and responsive. I would absolutely recommend this place!

I am originally from New Zealand, have lived in San Francisco for many years now. I enjoy staying in interesting places and am about as respectful and easy going a guest as you could find. I've stayed in airbnb rentals in over 10 countries & so far it's been a great experience every time. I travel a bunch for work, skiing and to enjoy new places.

I'm both traveller and a host (check out my listing), so I know both sides of this process.
