Remodeled apartment in Palo Alto with private entrance. About 2 blocks from Stanford campus, and in close proximity to Town & Country, California Ave, University Ave, and in between the University Ave and California Ave Caltrans stations. Newly painted and exceptionally clean.
Fully furnished bedroom with king sized bed and spacious closets. Roomy bathroom with shower and full vanity. "Trader Joe's" kitchenette with large microwave, coffee and tea pot with large selection of teas, toaster, and full sized refrigerator. Originally was used by Stanford medical students who never cooked as the cafeteria is open 24/7/365, so appliances for cooking take the place of a stove.
Outdoor chairs available for sitting on the patio enjoying the sun or gazing at the stars.
Interaction with Guests
Host lives next door and is available for questions and conversation during your stay.
The neighborhood is on the "fun" end of Stanford University because if you are visiting to see a sporting event you cannot get closer. Within a 5 minute walk you will be on the Rugby, Lacrosse and Soccer fields, a little further and you are on the Sunken Diamond for baseball or across for Women's Softball, next you will be near the football stadium, Angel Field and tennis courts and finally you will be close to Maples Pavilion where volleyball and basketball is played. All this right across the street from my suite.
Yes, there is both the Palo Alto free shuttle and Margaret shuttle that Stanford University runs as well as bus service along El Camino Real. At the University Ave. train station(within a easy walk) we have a new bike rental service run by the city.
The suite is a tobbaco free space so if you do smoke please go outside on the sidewalk. The tobacco free also includes chewing tobacco and the e-vapor devices and any other things that utilizes nicotine. Quiet is the best way to describe the place so if we could please keep it that way I would appreciate it.
I had a nice say during a work trip to Palo Alto. Sid was a very good host - he kindly accommodated my late arrival. A nice, quiet apartment.
Sid was great! Super friendly and helpful. The place is lovely - very clean, bright, and excellently located. Highly recommend.
Sid's place is always a pleasure to stay at, it's our second time, and we love how nice it is to be in a quiet neighborhood with such a great outdoor space before we take our son to medical apts nearby. The king bed is great too. Sid is really great about making sure everything is fine, and keeping the place nicely stocked with things you might have forgotten in the bathroom, or a nice selection of snacks in the kitchen.
Apartment is clean and spacious and it is in a great location; the area is particularly perfect if you are visiting Stanford University. Sid met me on my arrival but then we didn't overlap at all due to my busy schedule. But he seemed very nice and showed me everything I needed.
Sid is a thoughtful host. His apartment was clean, cozy and in an especially beautiful neighborhood. He was very accommodating about my changing arrival time (flight delays). He had everything on hand for making coffee, or tea and lots of little extras in the way of bath products. I had a great night's rest. Would definitely stay here again.
Wonderful location and home. Very comfortable and convenient. Sid is an excellent host.
Second time I have stayed with Sid. He will always be my first choice in Palo Alto. Great place; great host!
