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 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.
Everything worked out great, the place was quiet and clean. Quick walk to Caltrain and University Ave
Great location and everything was as advertised.
We stayed at Karen’s apartment during Thanksgiving vacation, enjoying the holidays as we would at home. Karen’s response to inquiries was speedy and the apartment nice and clean. The neighborhood was beautiful and quiet. The kitchen was well equipped and the utilities and bathroom were all convenient.
We shopped at nearby Whole Foods (6-minutes walk) and CVS store (9-minutes walk). A very efficient Stanford Coin Wash was within 20 minute walk. There was another full-service laundry on Emerson Street, on the way to Whole Foods. Service charges were based on laundry weight, so for small loads it may be a better choice than the coin laundry.
The Palo Alto Caltrain Station and Transit Center was a 7-minutes walk away. Getting to or from the airport (SFO) taking BART & Caltrain with a switch at Milbrae Station is convenient.
