This location is an ideal base of operations for work or travel. Close to everything!
5 minutes to Palo Alto (10-15 minutes to Stanford)
10 minutes to Mountain View and Redwood City
20-25 minutes to both the San Francisco and San Jose airports.

Guests have access to common space (including a shared bathroom), free driveway parking, and the beautiful private backyard garden and patio. There is a hammock under the palm tree in the back yard. I invite all guests to try it out because nothing beats enjoying the CA sunshine and listening to the swish-swish of the palm fronds!
Guest kitchen use is limited to beverages. Coffee & coffeemaker, tea, and cocoa are provided.
Interaction with Guests
I want you to feel welcome and comfortable while you are here. 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 10 minute walk away that has all the groceries/snacks you'll need in addition to an amazing Mexican bakery. Next door to the store is a taqueria with tasty burritos. There's a Starbucks and several other places to eat (including pizza, falafel, sushi, and a taqueria) a three-minute drive down the road.
Easy access to highways 101 and 84, free driveway parking. The SamTrans 281 bus stops about a block from the house. Stanford runs a free shuttle (the Marguerite) and there is a stop on the Bohannon Line about a 10-15 minute walk from the house. Most people find that a rental car or Uber are the best ways to get around.
Other Things to Note
NON-SMOKERS ONLY PLEASE! :)
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).
If you enjoy gardens or flowers, I'd be happy to give you a tour of my 3500 sq. ft. drought-tolerant flower and vegetable gardens :) If you like roses, you can enjoy the 51 rose bushes on the property. If you come in the summer you can enjoy some fresh garden produce!

Sarah's house is on a quiet street in a residential area. It's a very safe neighborhood with a 10 minute walk to the local Starbucks!
Very convenient off street parking. Sarah was always accessible by text for any questions we had.
We stayed with this when we were in town to visit our baby grandson. She made the environment so quiet, clean and cheerful that we felt totally rested every morning to go visit with our son's new family!
The room is just as pictured, the bed was so comfortable even with my back problem,( flares up on unfamiliar beds). The bathroom is right next to the guest room and squeaky clean with great water pressure in the shower.
Will stay here again when we return next year!
Fantastic room and host. A great introduction to air bnb, will recommend!
I really enjoyed staying at Sarah's house! She is a great host and makes you feel really comfortable and at home. She even recommended a few places to go around town. The room was also clean and comfortable too. I will be coming back again soon.
Sarah is such a wonderful host. She was really prompt in getting back to me, and was really friendly and warm. She provided a very comfortable room and a bed I didn't want to get up from. The location worked great for me too. Thanks Sarah!
It is indeed "simple, comfortable and clean".
Sarah is a warm and welcoming person. She gives a very cozy feeling.
Staying at Sarah's place is like the cliche "home away from home"
I would stay there again and recommend it to anyone visiting Silicon Valley.
Sarah was an amazing and generous host!!! He space was warm, clean, and comfortable. Sarah went above and beyond to make my visit as easy as possible including offering her hammock for relaxing, pancakes in the morning, and a ride to the airport after some frustrating travel delays. I would definitely book again!!!
Sarah is a friendly host, her house is nice and clean, with her lovely orange cat, Anabelle. I would like to stay here again when I come to this area.
I was born and raised in Palo Alto, CA but have called many places home over the years, including Washington state, London, Indianapolis, Chicago, Honduras, the Dominican Republic, and Washington D.C. I'm so happy to be home again in the Bay Area. I think this is one of the greatest places in the world!
I love gardening and plants, and enjoy spending time in my yard working on garden science projects. I recently removed 3500 square feet of lawn and planted drought tolerant flowers and a huge organic vegetable garden. I also love walking/riding my bike by the Baylands, baking delicious things, and all kinds of puzzles.
I decided to list a space in my home on AirBnB because I have met so many wonderful people during my travels. The Bay Area is a marvelous part of the world and I love hosting people who come to visit it!
