Incredible, just remodeled (7/2014) 2BR apartment in the most desirable location of Menlo Park. It has large windows that let in lots of light, premium washer/dryer in the unit, and an incredible countertop setup for cooking. It's the perfect place!
Our spacious, newly remodeled, 2BD apartment is the perfect place for your visit to Silicon Valley. It is walking distance to the Caltrain (but you can't hear it), and downtown Menlo Park, and 5 minutes from Stanford, F-B and Palo Alto. Sleeps 6.
Imagine designing your own home and finally getting to have all of those things you've always wanted: a big 60" TV, nice furniture and appliances, granite countertops, stone floors, etc. That's what this apartment is, and I am proud to share this labor of love with you.
If you like to cook, you'll fall in love with the kitchen. It has all new stainless appliances, a gas range, dishwasher and disposal, a double sink, and a microwave. The stove is flanked on each side by 2 feet of granite countertop, and then there's an L-shaped counter on the other side with the sink. The kitchen has two entrances, and there's a small "den" that has a granite countertop that is perfect for serving refreshments for a small gathering.
The living room is decked out with a 60" Plasma TV and AppleTV -- you can watch shows or movies on iTunes, Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime. There's also a super nice sleeper sofa that pulls out into a queen bed. It's spacious and comfortable.
The dining nook has a 6-seat table with beautiful lighting over it so you can have company or romantic dinners.
The bedrooms are very comfy. The master bedroom has a queen bed, a dresser, and a large closet. The second bedroom has two twin beds, a dresser, a large closet. Including the queen sofa bed, this apartment sleeps 6.
The bathroom is a work of art with stone floors, granite countertops, and two sinks!
Did I mention that there is a laundry closet with family sized LG washer and dryer machines?
Guests have access to the entire kitchen (refrigerator, dishwasher, oven, stove, microwave), a private laundry room, lots of storage space, and one covered parking space.
It is walking distance to downtown Menlo Park, and 5 minutes from Stanford, f@cebook, Palo Alto and Sand Hill Road.

The Caltrain (local commuter rail) is a 5-10 minute walk. This apartment is far enough away that you don't hear it, but close enough to the Caltrain that you can walk there easily.

Evan was a great host, very attentive and helpful. He responded very quickly to any question I had . The apartment is very nice; clean, spacious and comfortable. The location is ideal--within walking distance from the Caltrain to San Francisco, to a large Safeway grocery store an lost of restaurants and cafes on Santa Cruz.
This is an ideal place to say at, and I will be very happy to come back!
the house is so cosy and lovely. also quite close to Stanford. It has one parking lot.
there are a lot of shops within walking distance.
The house is well equipped with basic furniture.
Evan was a great host. He communicated well before, during and after the trip. He was very responsive, accurate and friendly.
The apartment itself is in great condition, almost better than what is seen on pictures.
Would stay with him again.
Evan was very welcoming and responsive. He met me at the property and helped me get situated. The beautiful pictures of the property were representative of the space. I was very happy to have stayed here instead of renting a hotel as I originally planned.
Evan was a great host! He made us feel right at home and was very helpful in providing the odd item that was missing from an otherwise perfectly-stocked apartment. Everything was just as advertised in the listing, and the house is in a great neighborhood with an excellent location. Definitely recommended for both short and long term stays.
We really enjoyed staying at Evan's apartment. The apartment itself was exactly as described, and was lovely - newly remodeled with a great kitchen, new electrical appliances, and a spacious living room.
The location was excellent - a quiet neighborhood, just a short walk to a nice park with a playground for the kids (Nealon), and to the restaurants and shops at downtown Menlo Park. Just a few minutes drive to Stanford and Palo Alto.
Evan and his family were great and attentive hosts. They made every effort to provide everything we needed for our stay, and even arranged for a crib and a high chair for our baby. Every question or issue were addressed right away and it's easy to see that they honestly care about their guests and about making their stay comfortable and enjoyable.
We will be happy to stay here again and highly recommend this apartment.
