House rules
The host doesn’t allow parties or smoking.
One bedroom apartment, just 3 - 4 blocks from University Ave (the main strip) in downtown Palo Alto's shops and restaurants, half block from a great playground, and 10 min walk to the train. Great for business travelers, family with young kids (cool outdoor play space & extra toys to borrow!), Stanford families, and singles & couples.

The unit is independent; just the outdoor patio/play space is shared. This apartment is above our garage which is just behind our house.

The space
An easy stay, super close to downtown Palo Alto. We're 3 - 4 blocks from University Ave (the main street in downtown Palo Alto, with lots of shops and restaurants), and very close to Stanford. One bedroom (450 sq ft) with queen bed in the bedroom, a full-sized fold-out sofa bed in the living room, kitchen, and bathroom with shower/bath.

Here with young kids? You're all set. We have an awesome playhouse outside and some bigger ride-on toys. We can even cover you with some toys and books if you don't want to bring your own. A great playground is just across the street. Need a pack-and-play or other things? We've got that... and almost anything else you'd need for young kids (we've got two ourselves).

Here for business? We have good wifi. Check in whenever -- We have a keypad on the door, so you won't even need to see us. Need a computer monitor to code or prepare those slides? We can probably help you out there.

Need recommendations? Cool, just ask!

Guest access
Please enjoy our property! If you have kids, they are welcome to share our awesome outdoor playhouse (and we can even lend some extra toys and books).

There is no washer/dryer in the garage apartment, but you are welcome to use the washer/dryer in the basement of our house.

Other things to note
Our friendly little dog (goldendoodle -- non-shedding and hypoallergenic) and our kids (ages 4 and 6) will running around outside. You will probably cross paths with them, but they of course won't be inside your unit. The dog will probably bark when you arrive, but she's just excited! She'll calm down as she gets to know you.

Location

Palo Alto, California, United States

Home to Stanford, Palantir and a number of big and small tech companies, this is a great neighborhood for business and family trips. The home is in downtown Palo Alto, so you're a quick walk from many restaurants and shops. If you're with your kids, there's a great playground half a block away. We picked this neighborhood to live in because we wanted its perfect blend of quiet and suburban, with the convenience of living downtown. We know you'll love it too!

I'm a programmer, writer, and tech founder. I've spent my time at the big companies (Goog, Microsoft, and Apple), but I've been doing my own thing for about seven years now. I've got two little boys and I'm an Airbnb superhost for many seasons in a row now. Growing up, I bounced back and forth between Seattle and Philadelphia a few times. I moved to Palo Alto in 2011 and have no plans to leave -- love it here! If I'm hosting you, I'm happy to give you lots of pointers about what to do. If you're coming with kids, even better! Our kids (and dog) can play together, and we've got lots of kid things to borrow.
