Guest Access

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!

The Neighborhood

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 delicious Mexican food. There's a Starbucks and several other places to eat (including pizza, falafel, sushi, sandwiches, fast food, and another taqueria) a three-minute drive down the road.

Getting Around

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


I have a cat named Annabelle who enjoys being admired by AirBnB guests. Her life goal is to escape out the front door so you'll have to watch your feet when you come/go. 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!
