About this listing
Fabulous location w/i easy walking distance of downtown Palo Alto, Caltrain, Stanford, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, cafes, shops. Easy parking. Full bed plus guest mattresses avail. Gym closeby! (I have passes)
Completely amazing location and nice place, not posh but nice :) Well lit, too. Easy to park.. Half a mile from the Stanford gym, free entrance with the red pass (which I leave on the fridge magnet).
5 minute walk to TJ, 5 minute walk to Whole Foods. 12 minute walk to Caltrain and downtown Palo Alto. 5 minute walk to Town and Country shopping area, with some nice food places like Mayfield and Calafia (that's the place started by the (website hidden) chef, very good food, midrange prices)
Easy walking distance to Caltrain (Palo Alto station) and to the myriad of busses that leave from the station. Free shuttle to stanford is minutes away, or walk (Stanford is v close y).
Other Things to Note
The entrance is up the wooden stairs that are behind the driveway, the apartment is on the second floor or a 2-story house.
Would really appreciate if guests could leave the house as they found it so I can come home to a clean place :) No need to be too strict, just decently clean. Thanks!
The main adjective I'd use to describe this apartment is - peaceful. It is exactly as described. Small (cozy) and perfectly located in a quiet Palo Alto neighborhood, five minute walk to downtown PA, Whole Foods, restaurants, etc. I stayed for 10 days - my son joined me for the last 5. It was a little crowded for 2 but we made it work. The kitchen is small but I was able to cook a couple of reasonable meals. Karen - the host - was completely available, met me when I first arrived, and was generally just very easy to work with from beginning to end. This was my first Airbnb experience and will certainly not be my last.
Although Karen already reminded it might be a little crowded for us and maybe we should give it another thought, we still stay here and found that's true but we love it! lol
The location of the house is quiet and convenient for us, takes 10 mins to Stanford to have a walk or 6 mins to Whole Food to have some food. And for us, it's also convenient to drive to have a Silicon Valley tour to Apple, Google, Facebook..etc.
So I really recommended to rest of you if you wanna have a Silicon Valley tour like us! lol
Thanks Karen. It was a great place in a great location. I stayed by myself to visit at Stanford and the location is perfect. Parking available and next to grocery, coffee and campus. It's the right size to be comfortable and stretch out to read a book or get work done. The neighborhood is tree lined and quiet. Karen is a very nice host and lent me a bike to use. Thanks again.
The apartment was comfortable and in a great location -- very walkable and close to nice restaurants, caltrain, etc. Everything was clean and as advertised, though we wished there had been window coverings to provide a bit of privacy. With the window open, the train in the morning was loud, but since we were up early anyway it didn't bother us, and it was fine with the window closed. Karen was very reachable and helpful.
Karen was an amazing host!
All we needed was provided. I spent about a week with another colleague and we were very well set with an extra bed on the floor. Actually even more than that. The apartment is very well located. Close to everything you need, including Stanford Campus. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom worked fine. Everything as expected! I'd definitely stay there again. Thanks for all, Karen!
Great location. Well furnished and as described.
Easy and responsive communication with Karen.
