This spacious and sunny house sleeps 6 in beds or 8 with the use of pull out couches. It includes three bedrooms, a modern kitchen, a comfortable living room and downstairs playroom.
The house has a country feel with chickens and creekside location along Adobe Creek. Along the creek we have a spacious patio, deck and hot tub, with outdoor sound system.
The 4 chickens provide fresh eggs every morning.
We are centrally located with fantastic biking out the front door, and it is possible to access everything needed, such as shopping, Stanford, downtown Palo Alto, etc on a bike, which is provided with the rental.
Ask about an optional cottage that may or not be available if you need even more space.
Interaction with Guests
Saying hello sums it up, the house is yours.
We are on a forgotten, dead end street, have great neighbors, and are very close to Stanford. We've lived here 20 years, love it. Be prepared for sunny cloudless days 95% of the time!
We have an EV charging station at the house, and Hertz rents the Leaf Electric Vehicle at the San Francisco Airport. There is no charge for charging at our house!
We also provide a bike for getting around locally including lock and helmet.
Other Things to Note
The house is uncluttered and has many fun features such as a sand cushioned 'slackline' area to practice balancing, patio with outdoor dining furniture, BBQ and 4 independent high end audio systems in the house. The style is informal and comfortable, but neat and organized.
Please don't wear shoes in the upstairs carpeted living room and master bedroom.
Borrow anything that you find, just return it in as good shape or better.
No pets allowed in the house.
Tom did a great job in making sure everything was set up well for a large family. Fresh eggs were great!
My friends and I stayed at Tom's house for a long weekend when we were back in town for our college reunion. It was absolutely perfect... better than advertised! The house was very clean and cozy with ecclectic decor and incredible outdoor space. Tom was incredibly welcoming and made me feel right at home as soon as I arrived. I highly recommend this listing to other guests on airbnb!
Tom was an excellent host and the house was beautiful. Highly recommended.
My family and I rented the Miranda House for 3 nights during our CA trip for our brother/cousins wedding. The house could not have been more perfect! Plenty of farm fresh eggs from the chickens, fresh produce from the garden, an amazing selection of music, hot tub, bbq, great patio dining... I could go on and on! This was my first airbnb it exceeded my expectations! Tom was a fantastic host!
We (my sister, brother-in-law, and me) had a wonderful time staying at Tom's house! I was in the area for my son's wedding, and the house was perfect for our needs. We entertained out on the beautiful patio, and had people over for breakfast around the table with lots of seating. The house is not fancy and polished like some may be - you truly felt you were staying at a friend's house. I loved the privacy, and all the greenery around the house. I miss it already, and plan to return to Tom's little cottage when I visit my son in the future.
Tom is a extremely nice & helpful guy! Very stylish house indeed. You can find from all the family photos, posters, equipment to understand what a wonderful life can be! Also we likes the cats, chicken, plants, tomato.....A very specially nice & warm feeling we got during our stay in his house, difficult to describe. The house is cozy, comfy, and well facilitated. Location is great as it just few minutes to the main stores & restaurant area. Definitely we will stay here again in our next trip! Thank you Tom.
