Nice quiet 2/2 condo quaity unit, suitable for small family or 2/3 work associates. Far less expensive than two hotel rooms which would top $450 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 a great host. He accommodated my family at the last minute and was always available if we had any questions. The condo is very convenient to Stanford and a great spot to stay if you have business there or in Palo Alto.
Tom was very accommodating for our trip. We arrived late at night and he left us the keys so we could get right in. Apartment was accurately described and the location was perfect for us.
Tom was a very friendly host. He offered to pick me up when I arrived and dropped me off where I needed to be after check in.
The place is only a 12 minute walk to the Menlo Park Caltrain station, is close to some restaurants and a few minutes ride to University Ave, where there seems to be most of the action. It is dated, but large, comfortable and clean.
Overall a very good deal.
Great last minute option to an expensive hotel. Perfectly located for meetings in the area. Host very accommodating to late arrival and making sure all was smooth during the stay. Apartment was comfortable, clean and spacious.
Tom is an ideal host. Very easy to communicate. After my reservation, he sent a document with detailed information of his house. After getting SF airport, we can reach each other via SMS and I checked in smoothly. Actually, the most smooth check in I ever had in Airbnb.
His house is spacious, clean. I could find everything I need.
I'll definitely be back again when I'll visit Palo Alto again.
Thank you, Tom!
The neighborhood was what I expected. The condo is dated and tired. Checkin was complicated and unclear. When I mentioned some issues to Tom, he responded quickly.
