We respect your privacy. We will interact as little or as much with you as you'd like.
This place was absolutely perfect for what I wanted. I wanted a base camp for a week near Stanford and the privacy of this suite made the extended stay work out great. Siddarth and Shobha were excellent hosts — very accommodating and amazingly responsive to any communication. Best of all the suite is really well designed — with the small kitchen, desk space, private bathroom. The bed linen makes you feel like you are staying in an expensive boutique hotel and they have thought of everything you might want (iron, spare toothbrush, fridge filled with drinks). I would absolutely recommend staying here to anyone looking for a quiet, beautiful place.
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.
The place is perfect if you have to stay in the area for a few days. 15min walk from all the restaurants and stores on University Av. and very quiet. Everything was new and clean. Nothing wrong with this place!
Siddharth made us welcome, responded to our inquiries and I feel the place was a bargain for the cost. thank you folks
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.
