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.

Interaction with Guests

We are happy to share our home and hospitality with you. Your room and bath are very private and located in another hallway, away from our own rooms, so you can have all the privacy you like.

We respect your privacy and know you will respect ours. If you have any special needs, just let us know in advance and we will do our best to accommodate you. We look forward to hosting you and appreciate that you have chosen to stay with us.

The Neighborhood

We are located in the Menlo Oaks neighborhood, between Bay Road and Coleman Avenue. We are in the unincorporated area of Menlo Park--that means centuries-old oak and redwood trees, no sidewalks, privacy, and peace and quiet. Mark Zuckerberg's Company, Stanford University and Hospital, and Sand Hill Road are all just minutes away. We are literally in the heart of Silicon Valley, equidistant from SJC and SFO. Even OAK is close by.

Getting Around

Easy to get around, close to 101, 84, and downtown Menlo Park and Palo Alto; 20 minutes to 280. Good to have a car, and there is plenty of parking available on the property. If you'd like to go to San Francisco or San Jose for the day, but don't have a car, I can drive you to the Cal-Train station, (just 5 minutes away). Also, UBER is very accessible here. If you need a ride somewhere, let us know in advance and we may be able to accommodate you.

Other Things to Note

Do you need a ride to or from the airport? A cab will cost between $85-$125. I'll be happy to drive you for a fee of $30 either way. Just let me know ahead of time.

If you are traveling with children or a third guest, we have an additional bedroom & ensuite available--check out our Beatles bedroom on our Profile page. Special 50% discount when booked along with the Paris room!

Paul & Paula

Menlo Park, California, United States · Member since January 2014

My husband, Paul, and I are both retired from Silicon Valley careers and now actively enjoy photography, travel, and our two granddaughters who live near by. We were fortunate to have traveled around the world before we retired. Now we choose to vacation in Cabo San Lucas whenever possible. Paul enjoys road trips (we drove to Cabo once) but I prefer flying. My life motto is "Choose Joy" and I believe pigs can (and do) fly--they are all over my home. All time favorite movies are "Harold and Maude" and "Grand Canyon" but I'll go see any movie, anytime. I am a Beatles FANatic and my daughter is a Francophile, hence all the Fab Four and Parisian touches around the house. We aren't fussy and really enjoy and LIVE in our home. Come in, take your shoes off, get comfy, and prepare to be pampered. We want you to experience what it's like to stay in a small, European boutique hotel--and we hope you will visit us again and again!
