Imagine a plush retreat in the hills with a private bedroom with en-suite bath, separate entrance off of pool & patio deck, mini kitchen, BBQ, separate family room for your use with cable TV, electric recliner-sectional, shelves of books & fireplace.
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.
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.
This was an absolutely wonderful place to stay! I met a friend to attend the SF Garden Show and we chose Sherry's place for our trip. We each had our own room and bath, and the family room with small kitchenette gave us a gathering place. The terrace just outside was perfect for the breakfasts Sherry provides. Their home is surrounded by trees and the place is completely quiet - no traffic sounds at all. We could only see one other house from the terrace, felt like we were deep in the country. One of our rooms had a sofa bed, but because it has an air mattress it was completely comfortable. Everything was beautifully clean. And Sherry had even ironed our pillowcases!
Great peaceful place close to the major Silicon Valley "centers".
The host family was most accommodating and all the arrangements were super.
Thank you for a very pleasant stay !
Sherry is wonderful! Very thoughtful, from sending me suggestions for places to visit prior to our flying to California, to loaning me a special book of hers after I'd commented on an interest of mine.
I'd seen the photos on this site and couldn't quite believe them. But their home is truly move lovely and the views more beautiful than portrayed. It's also in such a great location--while we were in a quiet retreat, we still were able to drive to Palo Alto in 15 minutes.
Would recommend this Airbnb as highly as possible.
My second stay with Sherry and family was another great experience. They are always so welcoming. The accommodations were once again in impeccable shape. Sherry keeps the kitchenette well stocked with beverages and some snacks. And the location is so peaceful and comfortable. Looking forward to returning.
Jayme and I really enjoyed our stay at Sherry's lovely home. She is a fabulous host and goes the extra mile to make you feel at home. Beautiful views.
Sherry is a great host and made me feel very welcome in their beautiful house, which is located in a very nice neighborhood. I highly recommend staying at her place, especially if you appreciate a quiet neighborhood in a scenic surrounding.
Originally from Philadelphia, I moved to Northern California over 30 years ago and my first year in California I drove all over the state to get more familiar with it. I'm the designated travel and restaurant planner in my family and will be glad to help with ideas for your trip.
