Paris is always a good idea...

Our large home in Menlo Park has a quiet, private bedroom w/queen TempurPedic bed and private bathroom waiting for you. Enjoy the ambiance of a Parisian pied-a-terre, rural setting, and great hosts. Close to 101 & 84, SJC & SFO.

If you are traveling with children or a third guest, we have an additional bedroom & ensuite available--check out our Beatles Bed, Bath & Beyond bedroom. Special pricing available when this 2nd room is also booked.

The space

ENJOY the peace and quiet of a country setting in the unincorporated area of Menlo Park. Plenty of off-street parking in our spacious driveway.

Your room has fresh flowers, a queen bed dressed with fresh sheets , a down comforter with a fresh duvet, and plenty of pillows. There is a small desk, a closet, and drawers for your personal items. You'll find bottled water and snacks in the armoire. Turn down service in the evening, chocolates on your pillow, and robes and slippers in your closet. Your room includes a 42" flat screen TV with XfinityTV, high-speed internet, WiFi, and a clock radio with iPod/iPhone 4, 5 & 6 docs for re-charging.

(ALL linen is changed and laundered between guest stays including mattress pad, pillow protectors, and blankets.)

Your private bathroom has a hair dryer, shampoo & conditioner, body wash, fresh towels, a shower bonnet, magnifying mirror and sensor night lights. Forgot your toothbrush? No, worries, we have a fresh supply. Maid service (me) every day to make your bed and refresh your bathroom.

Breakfast awaits you in the kitchen. Cereal, bread, and a toaster will be on the counter. Help yourself to the fridge for milk, OJ, yogurt, fruit, 1/2 and 1/2, butter and jam. Hot coffee and cups will also be waiting for you, along with sugar, Splenda and a variety of flavored creamers. A Keurig is on the counter along with a variety of teas, hot chocolate, and coffees. We also have "To-Go" cups if you're in a hurry.


Guest access

Feel free to also use the connecting family room area to read, relax, or (in the winter) just to enjoy the fireplace.

In the spring and summer, step outside to the backyard and enjoy breakfast on the patio table and catch a glimpse of "Charlie Feral".

Staying out late? You will be given your personal digital code for the front door, and we'll keep the light on for you. Please lock the door when you come in.

PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THE DIRECTIONS TO OUR HOME before your arrival. We are located off the street, down a long, private driveway.

Lovely stay at Paula's "Paris getaway" - the only thing missing were the croissants - instead there were the yummy, yummy cookies at bedside - fabulous! You'll enjoy your stay here.

My partner and I had an amazing time with Paul & Paula. They decorated the room with a beautiful francophone theme with cookies, chocolate, wine, and waters. It was fully loaded with a TV, fresh towels and toiletries, and even a trinket dish stationary. In the morning, Paula had prepared an amazing breakfast spread with a handwritten note to greet us. I can't stress enough how impressed we were. Wish we could've stayed longer.....Thanks so much!
