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 for one or two persons. Minimum stay is 7 days.

The space

This serene ground floor space with private entrance was designed by famed architect Birge Clark. French doors lead to an outdoor area with table for your use. 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 includes the following amenities:
Queen size bed * Private bath with shower * TV with cable * WiFi * *Mini-fridge * Microwave * Coffeemaker * Tea kettle* Weekly maid service. Please note - although this website is called airbnb, we want to make it clear do NOT serve breakfast. We do set up the room with tea, coffee, milk, and granola for those who prefer to stay en suite in the morning. Our guests generally stock the fridge with their preferred fruits, yogurts, etc. or take advantage of nearby spots for breakfast - we are happy to provide a list. Maximum two persons. Please email us with questions!

Guest access

The suite is very self contained. There is a microwave, a mini-fridge, coffee-maker, tea kettle. There are French doors leading to a patio dining area. 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 free 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.

Interaction with guests

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.

Other things to note

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 is one step leading up to the room, and once inside, there is one more step down into the room.

Everything about the carriage house was perfect. I even slept well, which is unusual when I travel. Truly, it was like a home away from home. I want to stay again!

This was a wonderful private place on a beautiful Street of great homes and landscaping. With private entrance and bath made it ideal. I walked a little over a mile to Stanford University for everyday for a week of school. Less than a mile to restaurants and shopping everyday as well. Great place for a couple on vacation!

Loved my stay. It was a short walk to good shopping and lively Palo Alto restaurants and fun. I had class on Stanford campus and the walk was easy. The room was spectacular. Fireplace, cozy, private bath, great porch/patio area. Comfy king bed. A coffee pot and great coffee were provided as well as a microwave, fridge, and morning cereal. There was a little traffic noise in the morning, but not too bad.

We are a working couple, both kids are now in college, which we will hope will allow time to host guests in this lovely room that really doesn't get much use. We are happy to provide info about the area to make your stay enjoyable. Palo Alto is an awesome town - we've both lived here most of our lives and love it.
