The Space

Min 3 day stay required.

You will have 24hr access to the private room with attached bathroom suite. The room functions as a living room by day and includes a cozy L-shaped sofa, coffee table, and wide screen HDTV. By night, the room easily converts to include a raised queen-sized airbed with memory foam mattress pad on top. The attached private bathroom suite has a combination tub-shower.

You will have access to the bottom floor of the house which includes an elegant living room with vaulted ceilings, dining area, and fully equipped kitchen. Also feel free to enjoy the beautifully landscaped garden with outdoor sofas and dining table and soak up the California sunshine.

Proximity to Stanford University Campus.
Perfect for visiting international scholars coming to teach, research or study at Stanford University. 8 minutes bike, or 20 minutes walk to the campus. If you'd like to bike, we have a one complimentary spare cruiser bike for your convenience. There are also reasonably priced long-term bike rentals on the Stanford campus.

Also easy walking distance to downtown Palo Alto (15 minutes) and downtown Menlo Park (15 minutes) with lots of restaurants and dining options. The Caltrain Station is a 15 minutes walk away and goes up and down the bay area from San Francisco to San Jose. You will be in the heart of Silicon Valley a few streets away from Sand Hill Road, the venture capital corridor fueling the tech and startup industry. By car, you are 10 minutes from Hwy 280, or Highway 101 and about a 30 minute drive from both San Francisco & San Jose airports, in normal traffic.

Menlo Park is full of bike paths and nice, easy walks and hikes such as the Stanford Dish walk, a paved path through the foothills with spectacular views.

I am happy to answer any questions you may have about the area or provide recommendations. This is an ideal set-up for an out-of-towner wanting to spend time with friends or family in the area or visit the nearby Stanford University campus.

Air conditioning and heating system. Bedding includes all-cotton bed linens, a comforter, 2 regular pillows, and two towels. Please bring your own alarm clock and toiletries, and a beach towel if you'll want to take towels out of the room. There is room for off-street parking is the driveway.
Hi-speed WiFi access throughout the home.
