**Due to the coronavirus, we’re taking extra care to disinfect frequently touched surfaces between reservations. Our HEPA air filters also help with indoor air circulation**

This is a charming house nestled amongst redwood trees, within walking distance of downtown Palo Alto. Located on a quiet and picturesque street, your privacy and comfort are guaranteed. A classic carriage house, it was built in the 1920's and has a warm, vintage atmosphere. You will enjoy the cozy feel of the house and fall in love with the spacious back yard with lemon and orange trees, outdoor dining area, and fairy lights.

The home is perfect for both vacation and business travelers. Located near downtown Palo Alto, Stanford, great restaurants, Whole Foods Market, and numerous public parks and transportation. A short drive to many of Silicon Valley’s major company headquarters. The house offers a serene environment for peace and relaxation while still close to everything you need.

A few things to note:

- When you enter the house, you are greeted by a staircase going up to the top floor (where the kitchen, bathroom, living room, and office/3rd bedroom are located), and a staircase going down to the ground level (where the bathroom, other 2 bedrooms, and garage/washer dryer/backyard access is).

- This is an old house with old plumbing. Please do not flush anything down the toilets besides toilet paper otherwise the pipes will back up. If you flush sanitary napkins/wipes/diapers and clog the drain, you will be held responsible for the plumbing bill.

- The heating controls are on the wall across from the main entrance. We also have space heaters if you need a warmer space.

- There is no A/C, but the shade from the trees and fans help keep the house cool.

- The upstairs bathroom light has a dimmer slider next to it. If the light is not working properly please push the dimmer slider up.

- We do have gardeners come on a bi-weekly basis, and we have someone come and move the trash/recycling bins to the curb each week.

- While children of all ages are more than welcome, we do not have any infant friendly amenities like a crib, high seat, play pen, etc.
