Welcome to a little home in Palo Alto that can be yours for your visit! We have loved hosting our two little retreats in Palo Alto for the last couple of years. We will work hard to make sure you have a great stay, so get in touch and book with us :)
We have really fast internet at the house, free parking on the street, 6 blocks to Downtown Palo Alto, and 5 minute walk to El Camino, Town and Country Village - Whole Foods Market, Peets coffee, Starbucks, the dry cleaner, etc. There are 3 beautiful parks with lots of open space within 6 blocks. The cottage is perfect for visiting scholars, startup entrepreneurs, Silicon Valley visitors or medical interns doing their Stanford rotation. San Francisco is a 45 minute drive or commuter train trip north of us. Two airports are within a 30 minute drive: SFO & SJC. The amazing California coast can be reached in 45 minutes at Half Moon Bay or Santa Cruz. The neighboorhood is one of the best in Palo Alto. Lots of great places to eat within a 5 minute walk. The cottage is a private unit separated from the main house. It has a full bathroom, and there is a double bed. I have a bike that you can rent for a nominal fee of $5 dollars a day. Please make arrangements with me ahead of time and I'll make sure to have a key for the lock! You can either bike around town or to the nature preserve along the bay, a bird sanctuary with hundreds of migratory birds. The town is incredibly bike friendly with tons of dedicated bike paths. There is a fire pit outside if you'd like to have a bonfire, and plenty of outdoor space to lounge around. It's a great little space for a last minute trip to Palo Alto! I hope you choose to visit!
Enjoy our shared backyard! We also rent the main home, Home Away From Home, on Airbnb. You may have an opportunity to meet them, but know your rental is totally separate from theirs! There is lots of space to relax, or go ahead and explore the amazing town and university!
I am always accessible by phone, text, or email. I can arrange to meet you in person for check in and check out, or can leave the key in the door for you in check in... And please leave the key in the door for check out! I try to make your stay as easy as possible :) I am happy to tell you everything about Palo Alto, or can give you 100% privacy! I do stop by the property sometimes to do maintenance around the home.
We are close to everything! I love the amazing food that is close by, and our great neighbors. You should explore the town by bike since you miss so much driving around!
Caltrain is really close! There is tons of on street parking for free. Taking Uber to the airport is really easy, and you can get credit using the invite code: Josh
We can't offer check in times earlier than 5pm
Check out time must be 10am unless you contact me and a later checkout is available.
Enjoy our cozy space!
Looking forward to meeting people visiting Silicon Valley... We will try to make sure your stay is comfortable!

Sorry there is no kitchen or washer/dryer.
Sometimes I can be flexible with Check in/Check out... Please make sure to ask ahead of time due to the fact there is almost always a check-in/out the same day you arrive/depart.
PLEASE LEAVE THE KEY IN THE DOOR WHERE YOU FOUND IT WHEN YOU CHECK-OUT AT 10AM.
Thanks so much for being a part of the Airbnb community!
The apartment was great. It has reliable internet and cable. It is sunny during the day and nice and cool at night. Despite some temporary road construction, there was plenty of street parking for my rental car. The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful. It was only a 7 minute drive to Stanford or downtown. Very easy and convenient. Check-in was as described. Easy.
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights and had a great time! Josh's place was lovely and very clean. It had everything we needed and was perfectly located next to Stanford University where we were visiting friends. The neighborhood is gorgeous, so quiet and friendly - we would love to live in a place like this! We met Josh on our last day and he was so kind and helpful. Thank you so much for having us to stay!
This place was excellent! Quiet, location was good (in between University Ave and California Ave, which are two places I needed to be), clean, and has everything I needed. Wifi was good, TV had lots of channels, Apple TV worked well for Netflix watching, and the bathroom was roomy.
Will definitely say here again!
This was a fantastic little cottage back behind the main house which was perfect for our needs. It is located near the Palo Alto High School in a nice quite neighborhood, where those passing by our car on the way in and out were nice and friendly. The cottage itself is a small cozy one room set-up with fridge, TV, bathroom and even included local attraction suggestions and a Uber discount!
Nice cozy space in a nice neighborhood across from Stanford University. Clean well kept.
I felt quite welcomed!!! got a early check in and a flexible check out as I was travelling from long distance.The place was very clean and tidy.Great neighborhood.Quite,peaceful and close to public transport.I would highly recommend and would choose to stay again.

Hey! My name is Josh. I've been teaching math at a local high school for about 11 years now. I grew up in the area, so I know almost everything there is to do. I love biking, swimming, playing tennis which is all close by to my house. I've traveled all over the world, and look forward to using Airbnb with my wife when we take off on my adventures! Feel free to ask me any questions about my place. If you need to borrow a bike while you're here, I have an extra for you to rent! I look forward to meeting you soon.
