A private entrance leads to this spacious room with hand-carved high beamed ceiling, and remodeled private bathroom, in a landmark home situated in one of Palo Alto's most elegant heritage neighborhoods. Very close to Stanford, downtown shops, and more. Available by the week for one or two persons.
This serene ground floor space with private entrance was designed by famed architect Birge Clark. The location is very convenient; close to University Avenue, a five minute walk to Trader Joe's, Whole Foods Market, Peet's Coffee and more. The free Marguerite shuttle or a five minute bike ride will bring you to Stanford Campus, or the Cal Train station which will take you North to San Francisco or South to Cupertino, Mountain View and San Jose.
Perfect for a job transferee, visiting lecturer, scholar, seminar attendee, or just visiting the area.

The suite is very self contained. There is a microwave, a mini-fridge, coffee-maker (or tea kettle if preferred). It probably won't suit if you are planning to "cook" meals - but is ideal for someone who eats out or brings in. There is lots of on-street parking, bus service is nearby, the train is about 10 blocks away. There is no access to the main house. Laundry service is not available.
We are long-time Palo Alto and Bay Area residents, and are more than happy to give tips and advice about local attractions, restaurants, etc.
This is one of the very best places to live in Palo Alto. The house where Hewlitt and Packard invented the first home computer is just a couple of blocks north (you can go by and see the plaque), and Steve Jobs' home (rest in peace) is a few blocks in the other direction. The streets are covered in a canopy of trees, and things are quiet. However, you can easily run up to University Avenue, the downtown main street, or over to the even closer local market or coffee house in minutes. There are parks for walking close by, and a short drive to the Bay Lands or the Stanford Dish for a more aerobic workout. If you are a geek, you can swing by (website hidden), (website hidden), Apple ... they're all here.
We are near Caltrain - to San Jose and San Francisco, and there are Samtrans and VTA bus systems, and the free Margarite shuttle to Stanford, all with stops within blocks of the house.
This is truly a stunning room, designed by one of Palo Alto's premiere architects. He also designed the Lucie Stern Community Center, the President Hotel, the Palo Alto Post Office, the old police and fire station (now a senior citizen’s center), and much of the 500 block of Ramona Street. We should mention that there are steps leading up into and down again in the room, and also steps to the bathroom.

We needed a quiet place near the office for two weeks and this was perfect. In a Palo Alto neighborhood full of old homes - one of the nicest parts of Palo Alto I think. The room itself was delightful and historical with hand hewn beams and an arched ceiling. Exactly the reason to stay at an AirBNB as opposed to say a hotel.
My in-laws came to visit us and stayed in this wonderful suite. It is really charming and wonderfully designed, very spacious, and the hosts were friendly and welcoming but at the same time very respectful for their privacy. My in-laws are coming back to visit in June and already booked the suite again...
Wonderful home away from home, especially if esthetics are important to you: the architecture, global crafts, lots of literature, a creative game closet. Comfortable to come back an relax between activities, Quiet, easy to sleep in am. Lovely walking neighborhood. Amenities - lots of hot water and microwave, speedy warming of the space much appreciated as we were there during a cold snap, with temps down in the 20s at night. Nice touches in choice of soaps etc in bathroom, complementary wine and chocolate. Walking distance to downtown on a nice day.
This place is awesome.
The room is huge.
The ceiling is high and it feels cozy.
The location is perfect and in walking distance to both university avenue and Stanford's campus.
The bed is very comfortable and clean.
The hosts are fantastic and very hospitable.
You are welcomed with dark chocolate and a bottle of wine.
As Arnold says: " I'll be back"
This was really a lovely and convenient place to stay for a few days in Palo Alto. I was coming to visit my newly born grandson living in another neighborhood. Everything was within walking or biking distance, in a nice neighbourhood with beautiful houses and gardens . The room was very cozy with super-confortable bed and sofa, many books and nice decoration to contemplate.
Yes I returned to this place because I loved the hosts.
They provide great company and I enjoyed talking to them.
We have become friends.
They were flexible with check out and that was very kind of them.
The room has a lot of beautiful artifacts in it.
It is wonderful.
Excellent, clean, exceptionally comfortable, attractive, easily controlled temperature in large room and comfortable bathroom with plenty of curbside parking. Host and hostess are helpful and delightful but there is no breakfast or reasonable place to eat. In my book this is not a B and B although we were offered a nice bottle of wine as a substitute (presumably). Apparently they did not consider that we usually don't have wine with our breakfast. We would stay there again without question (if they would have us.)
Lovely place to stay; flexible, kind, helpful people. Highly recommend!
This certainly was a CHARMING carriage house. It was a very welcoming and cozy (not to be confused with small) room. The hosts were also very welcoming and warm people. They went out of their way to take care of our needs. The location was wonderful; close enough to walk to downtown Palo Alto, but yet far enough away on a quiet neighborhood street. We will definitely plan on staying there on our next visit. We highly recommend it.
