The Space

Just off University Avenue in downtown Palo Alto with a large balcony and amazing 12th floor views of the San Francisco Bay. Fully furnished 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment in The Marc, a luxury high-rise apartment building with all the amenities -- swimming pool, fitness room, community lounge w/ free wifi, underground parking, billiards, yoga room, garden terrace, sauna, and BBQs.

Downtown Palo Alto has all the shops, restaurants, parks, and activities one could want. Especially restaurants. Vibrant night-life, fun window-shopping and people-watching, easy access to the great outdoors, amazing homes to gawk at. Close to Stanford University.

I don't have any pictures of the inside of this unit yet, but I can provide them before you decide. This unit is not as fancy as the pictures on the website for The Marc Palo Alto, but it's very nice. Friendly indoor cat is part of the package. Will need your help feeding him and a goldfish.

Specifics:
- Clean, tastefully furnished, lived-in by two kids, one cat, one goldfish, and one slightly crazy dad. Feels like a home, not a hotel.
- One queen bed, twin bunk beds, and a full-sized sofa-bed.
- Full kitchen: 4-burner stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, full-sized refrigerator/freezer, pots & pans, dishware, etc. Note, appliances are older than shown on The Marc's website.
- 42" Flat Screen TV, Cable service, DVD w/ Netflix, Vudu, Hulu (but why watch TV when there's so much to do nearby?)
- Wifi access included
- Dining room table seats 4; Balcony table seats 6-8
- Located two blocks off University Avenue, the heart of Palo Alto and one mile from Stanford University, at the corner of Forest Ave and Cowper Ave
- Easy freeway access from 101 (and 280)
- CalTrain station a short walk away
- Best hot chocolate - Cafe Venetia
- Best Fish Tacos - Sancho's
- Best frozen yogurt - Yogurtland
- Best salads - Pluto's
- Best pizza - New York Pizza
- Fancy Schmancy - Too many to list!
- Best Haircut - The President or Sam's Barber Shop

  • The apartment was just as described and photographed. Harry was a great host. Check in was a breeze, and Harry was always easy to get a hold of via phone or text.

About
I'm a single guy in his mid-40's with two great kids in elementary school. I grew up in Southern California and go back to visit family and friends fairly often. I live my life as best I can by the saying, "Winners make it to the starting line." If you don't take the risk of failing you can't possibly succeed. My lifelong passion is flying and all things aviation. The lights from the Palo Alto Airport are visible from the balcony. I'm an animal lover so when my kids wanted to rescue a cat (kitten at the time) that had been abandoned at a small airport in the Central Valley, I couldn't resist. I'm looking for relatively low-impact guests that don't mind a room full of toys or sleeping on a twin bed.
