The space

This is my home, but I am away from my home a lot - so when I'm traveling 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.

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.

- no pets

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.
