Description

The space

Bedoom available in two-bedroom two-bath apartment near the corner of Middlefield and Homer in Palo Alto. Short walk to downtown Palo Alto restaurants and businesses. The room is furnished with a queen-size bed, some drawer storage, a shelf, a nightstand and a table and chair. The room measures approximately 11'10" by 11'5" (not counting the closet). Included is dedicated use of the hall bathroom.

If you have a need to arrive before the stated check-in time, or leave after the check-out time, let me know. I am very flexible but have to have time to prepare the room if there are other guests immediately before or after you.

I do live in the same apartment but have a separate bedroom with its own bathroom, so you will have exclusive use of the bathroom in the hallway during your stay.

If you are new to AirBNB or there are no reviews of you as an AirBNB guest, please have a reasonably complete profile, including (ideally) first and last name, employment info and/or other information to reassure me that you will be a safe and respectful guest. Please don’t message me with web addresses, e-mail addresses or telephone numbers if you wish to contact me, because AirBNB will remove them your message. Thank you!

Enjoyed my stay with Davis! The room and the rest of the apartment were very clean. The place is walking distance to downtown Palo Alto and to Stanford while still being on a quiet and secluded block.

Wasn't able to meet the host, but everything was setup so I could check in and check out on my own! It was convenient and a great price!

Davis is a very considerate host, however this place priced high for what I got in comparison to others I have stayed at in this area.

Davis is an excellent host and very helpful. I had some trouble with my credit card and he was very understanding. The apartment is in a quiet, safe neighborhood, within a 10 minute walk of downtown. I would stay here again.
