THE PURPLE ROOM:
Friends and family who have stayed at my colorful, relaxed home always appear in the morning crowing about my beds. Honest. I love when they say they haven't slept that well in years. I really try to have a comfortable house and I think I do.
I am offering this cozy room in my spacious, inviting house in the Crescent Park neighborhood of Palo Alto. It's a cheerful, eclectic, lively home, with a variety of pretty garden areas, two wonderful dogs and, for lack of a better term, good energy. It's approximately two miles from Stanford University. The neighborhood is a lovely place to walk, with gorgeous trees and interesting houses.
I am a Stanford graduate (1978) and 30-year resident of Palo Alto.
The bedroom has a full-sized bed. So, depending on your familiarity with your traveling partner, one or two can fit. Shared bath if my son is home from college, which is unlikely. Private bath if he isn't. The room also has cable tv, a small writing desk and a large armchair.
For more than two people, pending availability, I have one other guest room. On this airbnb site it is called Cozy Tucked-Away Garden Room. For more than two people, you would need to take more rooms.
My spacious living room - with its large couch and cozy reading chair - will be made available for you to relax in privately. If you're a pianist, you'd be welcome to use the Kawai parlor grand. Guests will also have a garden courtyard space to themselves, which is quiet and serene.
My house and your room are clean and nicely appointed. Soft linens, fresh flowers and garden views await you. Renters staying for a week have light kitchen privileges and some space in the refrigerator. A simple breakfast is available for short-term guests..
You'll love my house. Besides the mattresses, the other things friends and family always say is "I feel like I'm on vacation when I'm here." So, take a vacation.....
Guests will be able to use the cozy living room, the dining room and an outside garden. They can put a few things in refrigerator as well.
No long showers. No loud TV late at night. No loud conversations on your cellphone in public guest areas. Must like dogs. No drugs, no smoking. Please don't ask to do your laundry. And please don't work at home during the day if you are someone who needs to be on the phone constantly. I work at home and need quiet and privacy.
I ask that guests be mindful of conserving electricity and water.
Megan was a great host. The house was clean, welcoming, and colorful. The bed was very comfortable! Thanks Megan for an enjoyable stay in Palo Alto!
It is a pretty comfortable mattress, though I am certain there are those who prefer a firmer mattress would have a different opinion. It's a gorgeous older house, in a beautiful neighborhood, with tremendous charm. I'd replace the windows to cut back on the traffic noise, but that's because I'm a light sleeper who has trouble sleeping in cities.
It is great garden and community where you can enjoy real leisure.Megan' home is clean and artistic. The dogs are so lovely and clever. It is great experience.
Megan's home is beautiful - warm and inviting, and she is a very gracious host. Plus, for dog lovers, her two canines are very friendly and pet-able. The bed is, indeed, very comfortable.
Megan has a welcoming home, with colorful rooms and the sweetest dogs ever. Her home is very close to the Four Seasons Hotel in Palo Alto, what comes in handy for those attending conference/meetings at the hotel. The room is spacious, clean, and the mattress indeed comfortable! My experience was just perfect and I definitely recommend staying at Megan's.
A truly beautiful home, in a historic Palo Alto neighborhood. Megan was a nice host, and it was a great stay overall.
