About this listing
Nice 3 bedroom house in a great neighborhood. Quiet and secluded, but convenient to Silicon Valley, Stanford, and close to downtown Palo Alto. You'll love staying here.
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.
Entire house and front / back yard.
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.
I am originally from New Zealand, have lived in San Francisco for many years now. I enjoy staying in interesting places and am about as respectful and easy going a guest as you could find. I've stayed in airbnb rentals in over 10 countries & so far it's been a great experience every time. I travel a bunch for work, skiing and to enjoy new places.
I'm both traveller and a host (check out my listing), so I know both sides of this process.
