This was the perfect accommodation for my husband and I during a week in the area - immaculately clean and comfortable. We really appreciated having the parking passes set up in advance and the hosts were incredibly quick to respond to any questions and needs before and during our stay. We are moving to the area and will recommend to friends and family!
Immaculate, modern, and comfortable. Quiet tranquil setting, quiet neighborhood. You will not be disappointed!
Amazing room in a perfect location for Menlo Park and Palo Alto. Add to that a super nice host, what more could you ask for?
Very nice room in a great location. Host was accommodating of arrival and departure times.
Siddharth made us welcome, responded to our inquiries and I feel the place was a bargain for the cost. thank you folks
Shobha and Siddharth made me feel very welcome in their gorgeous home. They were flexible about when I could arrive, arranged parking permits for me in advance, and the process of getting access to the private room was fast and easy. The room itself is beautiful, quiet, well-stocked, and has everything you need. They were also extremely quick to respond to any questions I had before and during my stay. I also enjoyed walking around the neighborhood in the evening after work. Highly recommend staying here, and definitely plan on returning the next time I have to visit Palo Alto for work!
About the Host, Siddharth
We live in the Bay Area, in the heart of Silicon Valley. We love living here - great people, culture and an outdoor lover's dream. We love exploring the neighborhood, meeting new people, hiking a different place each time (ask us about our favorites!), windsurfing - the bay area has it all!
We love to get away too. Seattle and Portland are our favorite west coast destinations. We've been to France quite a bit and love the people and the culture there, especially when you get out of the city. We have exchanged homes a couple of times with some lovely people from France, and hope to do it again.
Yoga is our favorite way to balance city life and slow down the pace. The Bay area quite possibly has the best Yoga teachers anywhere, and classes that vary from relaxing to really difficult. Ask us about our favorite Yoga teachers & studios (We have a number a short bike ride away)
Part of our desire to rent our room is to meet new, interesting people. We'd love to have a cup of coffee or (better still!) a glass of wine, and get to know you.
