I have a non-traditional job so I am in and out during the day, but I'm generally home in the evenings. My home is pretty quiet and mellow :)
I want you to feel welcome and comfortable. If for you that means keeping to yourself and just crashing here at night, that's totally fine! If you prefer to have a friendly chat when we cross paths, that's also great!
Friendly, diverse, residential neighborhood. Lots of families and kids. There's a little corner store a 5-10 minute walk away that has all the groceries/snacks you'll need in addition to an amazing bakery. Next door to the store is a taqueria with tasty burritos. There are several places to eat and a Starbucks a 5-minute drive away.
Easy access to highways 101 and 84, free driveway parking. The SamTrans 281 bus stops about a block from the house.
Flexible check-in time pending availability. Last-minute bookings can usually be accommodated, so don't hesitate to contact me.
There is a cat in the house. She is shy so you may not see much of her. Unless you bring cans of tuna, in which case she will be your new BFF. (Incidentally: she is not allowed in the guest bedroom and I vacuum frequently with a HEPA filter vacuum).

Sarah is the real deal. From the moment I walked in, she was extremely welcoming. The room was sparkling clean and filled with many thoughtful things guest may need. I really enjoyed chatting with her and am certain we'd be besties if we lived closer! Top notch airbnb experience!
Sarah was a great hostess. She made us feel comfortable and made it clear that she respected our independence. At the same time, if we had questions about getting around town, or other requests, she was helpful.
The room couldn't have been more comfortable: wonderful bed, large closet, electric heater for cold mornings, and plush wall to wall rug.
It was never a problem for us to share the bathroom.
The quiet neighborhood was pleasant and easily accessible to the highway and downtown Palo Alto. (We had a rental car).
I stayed with Sarah as I had a class to attend at Stanford. Her place was just a hop over the highway to Stanford and a great deal for the area. Her home was super clean & tidy and what I loved the most was how kind Sarah is and how genuinely welcome I felt. Thank-you so much Sarah for being such a warm host & thank-you to Annabelle for adding such sweetness to my stay.
My stay at Sarah's place was excellent. Her house (and the BR in which I occupied) was clean, quiet and comforting. Her attention to detail (such as a welcome card) made a lasting impression. Although our paths only crossed a couple times, Sarah was always courteous. I highly recommend Sarah as a host.
Sarah's room is very nice and spacious. The house is new and clean. She also provides parking space on the drive way. For the price she asks and the location of the room, I am very satisfied for the stay. Will definitely come back if I have the chance.
Perfect base of operations for my travel!
I was looking for a place to stay and work out of between meetings during my stay in the valley. Sarah's cozy home is located 1 minute from the 101 highway, 10 minutes from downtown Palo Alto and 30 minutes from SOMA. It was the perfect location.
Sarah is super friendly and helpful. That, in addition to a comfortable bed, high speed internet and a low nightly rate, made it a very good choice. Will definitely come again.
Just as stated. Nice clean space in convenient location.
Sarah is a terrific host, very helpful.
Will return as needed.
Sarah was wonderful to stay with! The space was perfect for my boyfriend and I to stay for a few days, very comfortable, clean, and plenty of space in the room for all our things. Wish we could've spent more time in the lovely, spacious backyard! The location in Menlo Park was very convenient as well, close to many great places to eat and ~10 minutes to Stanford. Sarah was a very kind, fun & gracious host. We had never been to California before, and Sarah was full of ideas and recommendations to help us explore the area. Would recommend Sarah's place to anyone, and will definitely stay again if we return!
I extended my stay with Sarah because she's that awesome! Can't beat the location, accommodation and friendliness of the host.
This was just what I needed! I felt comfortable and at ease staying the Sarah. She is super fun to talk to and went the extra mile to do what she could to accommodate me. I highly recommend staying with her!
