This studio is so comfortable and convenient. Laurel was so lovely, explained everything about parking and the locks. Really easy to communicate with. Location is so convenient to Menlo Park and surrounding areas by car. Thanks for a great stay!

Laurel is a great host. The apartment is clean and away from any noise, an awesome place to relax. In addition it is really close to the Stanford campus. Do not hesitate to book!

Location was perfect for me! Close to many attractions like the Stanford campus, Palo Alto city center, and the Menlo Park shopping area. I was able to find a small gym that I went to daily as well. The apartment itself has everything you might need and Laurel has done a great job making it a cozy space. I would highly recommend this property!

My husband Steve and I are long-time local residents; I was born in Palo Alto, so a real native and Steve is from England. We were high-school sweethearts (his dad was at SLAC for a year), then we reconnected 20+ years later & got married! Now we're empty nesters with 4 kids in our blended family, all living in California. We have a successful home-based marketing agency, so we’re around most of the time for your convenience and security.

We love hosting and also traveling-- to my husband's native UK (lots of family & friends still there). Have been to China, Cuba, Mexico and much of western Europe. Hoping to travel more in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

We love taking road trips in the Western US (our Tesla is our biggest splurge!), and exploring big cities, especially NYC & LA. Our favorite trip of all was a family stay in New Orleans-- fabulous music, food, history & people!

Since Airbnb is asking, the "5 things we can't live without" are (not necessarily in this order): movies & music, exercise, NPR & BBC, our kids & our cats.

We are Michael Pollan converts and think his 7-word food philosophy sums it up beautifully: "eat food (as opposed to food-like products), not too much, mostly plants." We buy local, sustainable, organic as much as we can.
