A perfect location! Just two blocks off of University Avenue--Palo Alto's beautiful tree-lined downtown--this private bedroom in a 2-bed, 2-bath third-floor condo unit is just a short walk away from dozens of diverse restaurants, exceptional cafes, boutique shops, groceries at Whole Foods, delectable treats such as ice cream cookie sandwiches and macaroons, and Apple stores. The Caltrain station is half a mile away (7 minute walk), and Stanford University is 1 mile away. This room is perfect for students, visiting faculty, or tech-minded folks.
The bedroom contains a full-size sofa bed, a 42-inch TV with cable, hi-speed wifi, an elliptical machine (which you can use during the day), and has a door leading directly to the hall bathroom which can be used by you exclusively during your stay. We'll have clean linens and towels for you as well as a continental breakfast of various cereals, milk/juice, and toast during your stay. We also have a washer/dryer in the house that you can use for a $5 fee. There is pretty ample street parking for cars.
We do have a dog (coton du tulear--small, white and fluffy) and a cat in our house, so please be aware, those of you who may be allergic. Our animals are very friendly and affectionate, and even have their own page on (website hidden)! (website hidden)
A little about us--my wife and I work in the tech industry and both graduated from Stanford with computer science degrees. We love geeking out about startups, design, mobile apps, video games, Arrested Development, and Game of Thrones, just to name a few of our hobbies. We are also very obsessed foodies and love to travel, so have no fear if you need recommendations on places to eat or things to do in the area. We are late sleepers and risers, and are generally pretty chill people.
Mike & Julie were fantastic hosts and their apartment is great. Ideal location for downtown Palo Alto. Would highly recommend their place!
I had a great stay with Mike & Julie (and Kupo!). The bedroom was perfectly set up and clean, and even surpassed my expectations from the pictures. The location also can't be beat, you can walk anywhere in downtown PA and parking nearby is never an issue. Would highly recommend their place!
Mike's place is great! Clean, comfortable, modern, and a short walk to University Ave. That, and the friendly cat and dog friends made my stay very pleasant indeed.
Loved my stay with Mike and Julie. Beautiful, conveniently located apartment, very friendly hosts, adorable pets.
The bed in the guest room was super comfortable, the bathroom was clean, full of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. They even had a blow dryer. It was so easy to get in and out of. I absolutely LOVED the location and parking was not a problem as there is a guest spot for the complex and parking on the street. Their pets were so quiet and their puppy was a great snuggle buddy. I would recommend Mike's place to friends and family and will hopefully get to stay again next year :)
Beautiful apartment, great location. Very friendly
Mike and Julie are excellent hosts. The room (and the entire apartment) were impeccably clean, the room was comfortable, and the location can't be beat. It was also nice to have good conversation with a true Silicon Valley couple. I would recommend them without reservation to anyone.
MIKE SEGO are offering a very nice place to stay, very cozy can not be better location in Palo Alto. It's been great to discuss with Mike about his projects, I will come back.
Wonderful stay - Mike went above and beyond to be accommodating, and the stay was superbly clean and comfortable, while being well located for an enjoyable, tree-lined walk to Palo Alto and the Caltrain (very easy 1hr ride to SF). I hope to return!
Great place to stay. Great host, nice room and the perfect location to see Palo Alto.
