About this listing
Cozy 2BD/1BA home, just blocks from downtown,
Town&Country village and Stanford. Remodeled 12 yrs ago
with a large open kitchen, a large backyard space with stone patios, a
hot tub, and much car space. Super-convenient, comfortable and charming Palo Alto living.
Please note, the house is available the whole month of September –
and I am prepared to offer a discounted rate for that period, until Oct. 8
This is an entire house. Though small it is quite comfortable. It is best for 1-2 people; it can accommodate more though there is an extra charge. The kitchen is a favored area, with windows looking out southwest over the large front yard of the house next door (which belonged to my grandparents), rather than the house itself.
Whole Foods and Trader Joe's are just a few blocks away, with downtown Palo Alto and the Stanford campus only a few minutes further.
Interaction with guests
I am retired and an avid traveller, hiker, camper, and photographer - so the times it is rented I am away. I am often here to meet guests, but otherwise the key will be left with a neighbor - or arranged otherwise with the guest.
High Street is just on the edge of the old homes and tree-lined streets of Professorville. The area is great for just walking around, in addition to the convenience of both downtown and Stanford being a short distance away.
Other things to note
I would be interested in longer term rentals, of up to three or four months. I have done this before through arrangements with Stanford visiting scholars.
Please no smoking.
I was raised for the most part in Palo Alto so it is my hometown. I am retired now, near the place I grew up in, doing much the same thing I did in the early days - riding my bike around town and in the Stanford hills. I worked as an earth scientist in oil exploration during my career, and lived in numerous places around the world. I feel very fortunate to have come back to this beautiful place in retirement.
