About This Listing
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.
Sid was very welcoming! I had a great first-time airbnb stay. The apartment was everything I was looking for. Lots of privacy, safe neighborhood, good location, clean, comfortable bed and pillows, etc. The pictures posted are accurate, however the place is even more spacious than I thought it would be. The fully stocked fridge and pantry came in handy when I needed to be on the go!
Sid's apartment is very conveniently located in the charming Palo Alto neighborhood, within a walking distance from/to Stanford campus. Trader Joe's etc. Was also tidy and functionally equipped. Sid's great hospitality made me feel back in home. I would definitely love to come back.
Sid is a super friendly host and we actually checked in late for our night and he is very patient to wait for us. His place is very cosy and comfortable. He has a well stocked pantry and fridge available. Location is convenient with 10 mins drive to town center for food and grocery. Will be glad to be back for another stay :)
A great place to stay, in a beautiful setting ( I love the rosemary hedge along the walkway)! Sid is a very welcoming, helpful, and gracious host.
Had a great time while visiting Stanford with my son; everything in walking distance.
Apartment is easy, convenient and well stocked with essentials.
Would definitely stay again.
This place was everything I needed. The apartment was cozy with king sized bed. It is conveniently located by grocery store, restaurants, Stanford, and a Caltrain stop. Sid was very welcoming upon arrival and checked in several times to make sure we were comfortable. Would definitely recommend this place if you're staying in Palo Alto!
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.
