This is a nice 3 bedroom house in a great neighborhood. convenient to silicon valley, Stanford, and close to downtown palo alto.
This is my home, but I am away from my home a lot - so when I'm travelling it is listed on here.
My house is located in the awesome Willows neighborhood of Menlo Park - close to downtown Palo Alto, while being convenient to commute routes. really the perfect location if you're visiting Silicon Valley or Stanford university.
This neighborhood is incredibly quiet & peaceful being less than a mile - a nice walk - from downtown Palo Alto.
It's a great house - the kitchen is awesome, Viking range, etc. Living room with large TV & audio system. Bright pleasant living/dining room. Master bedroom is spacious with a queen bed. 2nd bedroom is also large with a twin bed - it's set up as a kid's room, with a small table. 3rd bedroom has a queen bed and doubles as an office.
There's a nice little backyard with outdoor sitting area. it's surrounded by trees and has a nice quiet peaceful feel - great for a work space, or reading & relaxing.

Interaction with Guests
I'm available to help in the case of issues, I Might stop by once during a longer stay, but otherwise you won't see me at all.
This is a great neighborhood. It's quiet, it's friendly, everything you needs is close by, and it's a very convenient location for accessing other parts of the bay area.
Caltrain is ~25 min walk away, bus is a couple of blocks away.
Basically, I'd hope that you are careful and responsible, and that you will treat my space the way that you'd want me to treat yours! You are after all staying in my house, not some rental property.
Just a few simple rules:
- no smoking whatsoever in the house
- no pets
- no parties please
Feel free to use the kitchen but please clean the dishes you use.
Please take care when operating the electronics, I’ve described the operating instructions in detail within the house manual, so you should have no trouble getting things to work correctly.
You are welcome to use anything that is visible (including the guitar and books) but I ask that you not open drawers or closets except the ones specifically designated for your use while you're here.
We had a fantastic stay at Brent's place in Menlo Park. The house was as described and in a great location (central to amenities in Palo Alto, Menlo Park and Stanford but still on a quiet street in a safe neighborhood). There was a beautiful garden that our toddler loved exploring and enough space (3 bedrooms) to comfortably fit our small family. Brent was also very accommodating and friendly - he let us arrive in the evening (after our overseas flight arrived late) and he even responded to a text message when we couldn't get the television/cable working properly. Overall, we had an enjoyable experience and would definitely recommend this place (and Brent) to others. Thanks!
The description of the house as accurate. It was perfect for our family of 4. We LOVED the neighborhood and everything was nearby! Swimming, parks, shopping, a local neighborhood grocery store and awesome neighbors!
This is a charming house in a lovely residential neighborhood right at the edge of Menlo Park next to Palo Alto. We had a great stay at Brent's house, finding that it suited all our needs. The furniture is great, the bedrooms allow a lot of flexibility and the house has some nice updates, most notably in the kitchen which is stocked with everything under the sun. Brent was easy to reach and attentive both before and during our stay.
Very nice, functional House. Spacious space. Enchanting environment. Communication easy with Brent. We recommend this House.
Brent is a great host - always available to answer any questions. His property is very well kept and is in a charming neighbourhood. Looking forward to returning again soon.
