This is a spacious one-bedroom in a quiet residential community (with probably 30 units total) in the heart of mid-town Palo Alto.
I have a standing desk, a sitting desk, comfortable living room chairs, dining area, clean kitchen and bathroom, and California King size bed in the bedroom.
I am an experienced traveler and Airbnb host. You will have everything you need for a pleasant stay.
On the property is a washer and dryer (2 min walk from my unit, coin operated) and outdoor pool. There is also a resident manager who can help if any issues come up. Right next door is a coffee shop, good lunch place, and dry cleaners. A 5 min walk away is a full service supermarket (Safeway), burrito shop, and other restaurants. This is midtown Palo Alto. Downtown Palo Alto is about an 8 minute drive.
Ample parking at the end of the cul-de-sac.
High speed internet and Apple TV on a big screen TV (no cable channels). An extra aeromattress is in the closet if you have a third guest.
This is a great option if you're here for work on the peninsula or on vacation and want to be central in Palo Alto to get to Menlo Park or Mountain View or Sunnyvale, or even to San Francisco (45 min drive). The Caltrain station is only 15 minute drive away if you want to take train to San Francisco.
Ben's apartment was awesome - exactly what I was looking for.
Sometimes I prefer apartments to hotels, especially if you're staying for a while and will be indoors a fair bit. It's nice to have a kitchen, fridge etc.
Ben was away, but left a great set of instructions (even down to grocery store recommendations, which did actually come in handy). The place was tidy and pretty much had everything I needed.
Wi-Fi Internet speed and access was awesome, no problems connecting.
A nice play to stay. Ben was very informative, he left all the required instructions and a couple of recommendations for us to follow if needed. We lived like people in San Francisco live (I guess), we got our coffee downstairs every morning and cooked a little food after our big walks in the city afterward.
Good communication. Accomodating host with easy check-in and check-out. Clean and tidy unit as advertised. Great location with much to check out nearby.
Nice place, great location, helpful host.
