A clean, bright, space--perfect for short stays.

The Space

**This room is bright and airy despite its cozy size. It features a single bed, and floor to ceiling shaded windows overlooking peaceful interior courtyard. A small desk and chair plus lounger complete the furniture package.

**Super fast wireless internet will help you feel completely connected. You will have your own updated closet & modern shared bath (possibly shared with one other AirBnB guest) which is beautifully remodeled with stone and modern European fixtures. Linens are high thread count and towels are super soft and luxurious. You will have direct access from the courtyard to your room (private entrance).

**This room is just minutes from downtown Palo Alto and Stanford (just 2.5 miles away). The Ross Family YMCA and Philz Coffee are within 5 minutes walk time. Pharmacies, groceries, and several great restaurants are also within walking distance. Easy access to Hwy 101 and 1.5 miles to the CALTrain station make the room convenient as well. Whether you come from near or far, you are welcome here!

Room is only available for short term stays. To book for longer than 1 week, please see my listing "Large Restful Room, Beautiful Bath."

  • Beautiful room in a beautiful Eichler house. Large sliding screen door opens onto shared private and quiet interior courtyard -- I love sleeping with an open window for outside air, and this was a true luxury.

    Hosts were very friendly and accommodating.

  • The room is exactly as advertised. It is in a very quite neighborhood. Jackie has gone the extra mile to make your entire experience wonderful.

    Jackie and her husband were very welcoming and provided great tips and suggestions about the neighborhood. As this was my first AirBnB adventure, she was kind enough to politely let me know what to expect and responded promptly to my request for a booking.

    Highly recommended,

  • Jackie and Sebastian are an amazing couple and wonderful hosts! They have a plenty of interesting stories to tell you, and are always ready to help with whatever you need. Of no doubt, I have never had a better airbnb experience before.

    The house is close to California Ave Caltrain station and even closer to a supermarket open 24/7. The room is very comfortable and is perfect for a visiting student, which was my case. I was given a bike, which helped me to get to the Stanford campus fast and safe. Basically, I had everything one may need: quiet neighbourhood, fast internet, heater, fridge, microwave, comfortable bed and bathroom, clean sheets every week, and an access to the washing machine, when necessary.

    Still, it is not easy to tell how much I adored my time there. If you are heading to Palo Alto, this is definitely a place to choose and hosts to take care of your stay! Thank you very much, Jackie and Sebastian, meeting you was a great pleasure!

  • I've stayed with Jackie several times and have had a great, stress-free experience every time. The room had everything that I needed: a bed, desk, chairs, closet space, its own entrance, and a private bathroom. The linens were clean, the room was quiet, and the wifi was fast.

    Jackie is very friendly and accommodating. I look forward to staying with her again!

  • Jackie was an amazing host. She responded very quickly to my inquiries, and she accommodated my very last minute request. I will definitely stay with her again the next time I am in her area.
