About this listing
Nice quiet 2/2 condo quality unit, suitable for small family or 2/3 work associates. Far less expensive than two hotel rooms which would top $500 per night combined in the local area.
2 bedrooms, 2 bath unit. Master with queen bed, guest bedroom with a full bed. Plus an airbed to accommodate 3rd-5th guest. Secured bldg with secured elevator and entry. This is a second floor unit with a balcony; note this if young children will be occupants. Big screen TV with premium cable channels, wifi provided. Stereo and dvd.
Minutes from Stanford and Palo Alto and a minute from downtown Menlo Park. Across the street from Menlo College and Menlo High School. Setting overlooks trees and it sounds like a bird sanctuary with lots of glassline. Central peninsula location with easy train access to SF and Silicon Valley, could swap cars as part of the trade or use my three bikes since phenomenal biking surrounds this premier area. Menlo Park summer weather is some of the best in the world - one of many reasons why it is the most pricey real estate in the world too. It also has a nice refreshing pool as well in the April-October time period.
No pets allowed at my place, but I would petsit your pet gladly if we swap homes. Cancellation policy is 'strict' with notice of less than five days; see AirBnB cancellation terms.
Bus and train lines adjacent to property, within a few blocks
Pool, community laundry room, secured underground parking garage (one space).
This is a secured building; replacement of keys requires rekeying the entire premises, and there will be a $100 charge for new keys and re-keying the premises. In other words.....don't lose the keys!!
Interaction with Guests
I will email House Instructions upon the reservation being confirmed.
Central MP location, convenient to transportation, downtown, Stanford, and bustling downtown Palo Alto.
Train station is a 3 block walk, buses run along El Camino Real.
Other Things to Note
I would hesitate to host children under the age of five, as this is a second story unit that is not childproofed.
Access, keys, wifi codes, and house rules are provided by email prior to occupancy.
Lost keys result in a charge...do not lose keys.
Damaged items will be deducted from the security deposit.
Tom was very friendly and accommodating. The apartment is very well located, and is exactly as described.
The only issue is the proximity to Caltrain, which has the advantage of transport, but the drawback of the noise (for some reason they honk a lot during daytime).
Overall, great experience
The apartment was exactly as described. A little old but okay. Be aware that the location is great if you have a car, but 10-15 minutes walk from downtown Menlo Park.
Tom was very communicative during our time with him, and was flexible when we wanted to extend the stay.
Tom was a great host. His place was quiet and contained everything we needed. Tom was also very responsive to and helpful with literally anything we needed. He even offered to get me from the Caltrain station and take me to work to get my vehicle while I was arranging to get the keys from him. Over the top!
About Tom's place, great location, quiet, awesome pool, clean.
Thank you Tom, we will be back again and are looking forward to seeing the remodel!
Tom was very responsive via txt which made things very easy in terms of coordinating arrival. He greeted us after we arrived and showed us around the place and then left us to our business and privacy.
Excellent location within walking distance (1 block) of some great Japanese at Gombei. Great location for running to Stanford campus, around and back (approximately 8 miles).
Business meetings were in Palo Alto which was within 15 minutes short drive. Perfect location for business meetings in Palo Alto.
Comfortable firm bed...
Great experience. Great location and space. If you're going to Palo Alto this is an excellent location.
