Imagine a plush retreat in the hills with a private bedroom with en-suite bath, separate entrance off of pool and patio deck, mini kitchen, BBQ, separate family room for your use with cable TV, electric recliner-sectional, shelves of books and wood-burning fireplace - all 7 minutes drive from the freeway and 12 minutes to Stanford. Welcome to our two-story 4500 square foot home where my husband, our teenage son and I live on the upper floor and the spacious lower level is for guests.
A simple healthy breakfast is included such as fruit, yogurt, granola, eggs, coffee, tea and juice - mostly organic. Cold drinks are stocked in your personal refrigerator and are complimentary. There is a Keurig K-Cup brewer for your use.
Fresh towels, hair dryer, iron, shampoo and soaps are provided.
Separate access, large closet, fine bed linens on high-end queen mattress, small adjacent guest kitchen, use of Miele washer and dryer and outdoor parking makes a stay comfortable for both short or long term. We have accommodations for a third or fourth person in a second queen sleeper bed (which has a comfortable spring mattress) as we have a second bedroom and a 2nd full bath en-suite on the same floor. (Extra per-per charge of $25.00 each applies for the 3rd or 4th person.)
Located 4 blocks from the Palo Alto border in Los Altos Hills, there are many hiking and biking trails and lots of birds, deer and horses nearby. Downtown Palo Alto is 15-20 minutes away and San Francisco is under one hour's drive.
PLEASE NOTE: AT&T mobile service is very poor at our house. Sprint is only slightly better. T-mobile is OK and Verizon is the best. Los Altos Hills has some poor cell tower spots, sorry to say. We have an internet WIFI booster but at times it can be spotty as this is a hilly location.
2nd Bedroom with private bathroom is available for an additional charge. (It included in the price when booking for 3rd or 4th person.)
Interaction with Guests
We are available to provide tips and insight about the local area, restaurants, etc.
It is very private and in a natural setting - yet only 7 minutes from the freeway. The stars are brighter at night and most of what one hears in the morning and during the day is the birds chirping.
There is no close public transit.
Other Things to Note
We will try to accommodate food and soft drink preferences. Let us know. See notes at the bottom of 'The Space' description for more information on cellular and WIFI connectivity.
We prefer guest who tend to be quiet and not out late (after 1:30am). Our neighborhood is quite peaceful so we consider our neighbors with this request as well. Visitors of guests are welcome - just let us know in advance. No smoking and no pets, please.
We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Sherry and Ben's.Their beautifully appointed home provided all the comforts of home down tothe smallest details of a stocked fridge with yogurt, granola, fruit bars and coffee bar.The quiet tranquility of their home was just what we wanted as we visited with our daughter. Far better than a standard hotel room! Sherry&Ben graciously gave suggestions of things to do in the area. Fantastic place
and would highly recommend.
Very beautiful house, very quiet, but still very central for a visit to Silicon Valley, San Francisco, Monterey, etc. The room was very good, comfortable and clean with a lot of amenities. Very good bed and bathroom. Sherry was a great host, very friendly and helpful with the preparations of our trip and during our stay.
We could not have been more pleased with our first airbnb experience. Sherry and Ben were excellent hosts who welcomed us personally to their home, which truly is a beautiful retreat at an easy distance from Palo Alto. Tastefully decorated bedroom and lounge with every comfort, including small kitchen and wifi which worked perfectly.
As always, Sherry and Ben's hospitality is exemplary. We've stayed here several times now, and each time we enjoy our visit more than the last! The location is out of this world, and I don't think there can be a lovelier Airbnb.
Sherry is very accommodating and responsive. This is a high class accommodation in an outstanding neighborhood. This was my second stay and I am looking forwards to coming back soon.
I enjoyed a very pleasant stay. Everything is as described, clean, comfortable and Sherry was very accommodating and welcoming. Breakfasts and snacks were great and wifi worked just fine. Great location for easy access to Palo Alto, Los Altos and the Freeways. Lovely walks and trails nearby. Definitely recommend and will stay again.
