Single room with twin bed in our lovely Atherton home. There is a bathroom next to the room as well. We also have a larger room available under a separate listing that has a Queen bed and a private bathroom across the hall.
Great place. I spend one week-end after landing from France immigrating for work reason. The room is fine, the people are nice and the wifi is workin flawlessly. Breakfast in the morning if needed.
Host familly is a jewel, friendly, interesting conversation, dropped me at work for my first day and helped me moving all my luagages to my new definitive place.
The house is in a quiet and pretty neighborhood. There is a Caltrain station 100 meters away BUT IT ONLY RUNNING DURING THE WEEK-END. The nearest week day caltrain is menlo park about 10 minutes walks (maybe a bit more if you got lost on your first try)
Nice, calm and safe 30 minutes of biking to the (website hidden) campus.
MJ and her family were incredible to me. They were great people to have a nice conversation, to ask for any help and to have a great laugh!
Their house is very well located in a completely safe zone and with lots of restaurants, bars and services (like laundry and supermarkets) near by.
Everything is very clean, great room and an even bigger bathroom.
Internet access e reaaally fast!
I absolutely recommend MJ family house to anyone.
MJ and her family made my first days in US simply great. They are very warm and open people. Place is very clean and perfectly prepared for the guests. Couldn't recommend more!
Lovely home and family
Great Family. Perfect place to stay with a car.
But if you go to Stanford University not the best place to stay, you have to take the bus ECR to Palo Alto Caltrain Station, the bus is always late and walk El Camino Real is not a good experience, specially nights.
No shops or restaurant around.
Weekends caltrain stops at Atherton.
PERFECT IN EVERY WAY. I could not have asked for a better first airbnb experience.
From the moment I walked into their beautiful home on a quiet street in charming Atherton, greeted by always-smiling Mj, the Davey family made me feel welcome and comfortable, and looked out for me in all respects. My room and private bathroom were spic and span (just like their whole home), my cozy bed was extremely comfortable, and the kitchen and backyard were great places to relax in the evening with a book (or, better, with the family!).
This is a great place for anyone, and I particularly recommend staying here if you are moving to or are new to the Bay Area like I was--Mj and John (and even their mature, smart and fun middle schooler son) gave me great advice when I was house hunting and exploring the area; they're super connected with the whole community.
Thank you, Davey family, for such a lovely stay!
Staying at MJ's place was an authentic experience - as if I was living in the Silicon Valley, in a very nice house, a beautiful neighborhood. The house is beautifully decorated, extremely clean and tidy. The shower is fantastic, and the bed is really good. The only comment I have is regarding the bed - too soft for me, but there're people who prefer it that way.
MJ was extremely nice, gave me tips and we had a few nice conversations.
Fun family, nice place! Short walk to Atherton Caltrain (weekends), long walk or short ride (bike or car) to Menlo Park and Palo Alto.
First time I use airbnb's service and couldn't have hoped for a more welcoming house and a more genuinely good set of people. John and MJ, you guys are welcome at my place anytime.
Fantastic hospitality! Excellent breakfasts and conversations with MJ and her family. The home was very clean, quiet, and had a comfortable bed. I highly recommend this location to anyone visiting the area!
