  • It was a pleasure to be Lex's guest and a perfect choice for my stay. He's a charming host and his lovely home reminded me of my own. His quiet, tree-lined neighborhood is one of my favorites and perfect for an evening run. It's also close to the gardens & shops at the Allied Arts Guild, Menlo Park's downtown & their Sunday farmer's market.

    When I arrived, the comfy bed (with feather pillows) and en suite bathroom were spotless and donned in fresh linens. Lex left clear instructions for the TV, Wifi & other amenities. so I instantly felt at home. His beautiful backyard, shaded by a persimmon tree, provided a welcoming spot to read & his fully equipped kitchen had everything I needed to cook.

    Lex is a busy man, but available by phone if you need him. And if you happen to catch him at home for a conversation, it will definitely be interesting! His bright & airy, smartly decorated home is exactly as advertised. I'd highly recommend it :-)

  • We were very happy with our accommodations at Lex's lovely Menlo Park home. The guest room was located off the front entrance and we had our own private full bath. The house is in a very nice residential area conveniently located Our check in directions were simple and the guest room was all set up for us. The queen size bed is an air bed which we found to be comfortable for our 2 night stay. We would definitely stay here again.
