About this listing
Our studio is comfortable and private with a small kitchen, TV and free wifi. We are close to Stanford University and a mile from downtown Palo Alto. We are close to US 101 and the Bay. We are located 30 minutes from Half Moon Bay
This is a prime location with windows facing tall Redwood trees. It is very quiet and clean. We liked the layout of having the living area and cooking area separated with a wall. The private bathroom was clean and worked well. The towels are great. Mark and Sandy made certain we felt comfortable, greeted us, and offered us some tomatoes they had grown. The outdoors table is cute as pictured, the cottage is private, with off-street parking next to entrance. Both hosts took time to chat with us. We loved our stay thoroughly. We look forward to returning to this great Airbnb find.
I went up to Palo Alto for a long weekend visit, and this studio was perfect for my stay. Mark and his wife live in a very quiet and picturesque neighborhood, and their home is equally inviting. The studio was immaculate, tastefully decorated, and had some of the best amenities and accommodations I've seen yet in an AirBnB listing. The owners were flexible, gracious (a bowl of candy and a fridge of bottled water and Diet Cokes upon my arrival), and quick to respond. Thank you for hosting me!
My parents stayed with Mark and Sandy on their recent visit to Menlo Park. The room was very comfortable and had everything they needed. They found the host very friendly, helpful and welcoming. A real bonus was the quiet neighborhood street and the short distance to Cafe Zoe for breakfast and coffee. Many thanks Mark and Sandy!
Mark and Sandy were very kind and helpful all the time and the place is very nice and clean. I really enjoyed my stay and I would be happy to come back when I visit the Bay Area again.
Sandy and Mark are lovely, and their place is in a beautiful neighborhood. Everything is in good order, including the WiFi, and the layout makes it easy to come and go late at night without disturbing anyone.
About the Host, Mark
We have lived in this area for several years and love the diversity not only of the people who live here and visit, but traveling to the city, the mountains near Lake Tahoe and the ocean only a few miles away
