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.

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.

Guest access

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.

Just a few simple rules:
- no smoking whatsoever in the house
- no pets
- no parties please

Please clean any dishes you use and remove all trash, and perishable food - after your stay.


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.

Excellent place! My wife and I had a great stay with our two kids (ages 2 and 4). Nice yard with space for kids to play and run, great falafel restaurant and neighborhood park both a couple blocks away, nice grocery shop (Willows Market) a few more blocks away, house had everything we needed for a 3-week stay.

A cute home in a lovely, safe neighborhood. We very much enjoyed our stay at Brent's cozy house. Though we felt the home is showing some wear and tear from being an active rental, overall it's a very livable and comfortable space with a nice floor plan. The house is in a great neighborhood for walking and the home feels private as it is tucked behind a nice hedge and some lovely plants in the front yard. We also appreciated that the house was very toddler friendly.

It was easy to communicate with Brent. The home is in a great neighborhood and was conveniently located to the hospital for our needs. Overall, we enjoyed the place - The kitchen has a great stove. The back yard was sweet. One of the queen beds was super squeeky, uncomfortable and the comforter cover smelled funky. I'm sensitive to synthetic fragrance and the linens smelled of a strongly scented detergent. The TV was difficult to operate. There was a new home construction next door that went from 8 - 4 which was inconvenient for the naps I was trying to take inbetween going back and forth to Stanford for my son's surgery. After they left, it was quiet and a beautiful place to be!

Response from Brent:
Thanks for staying at my house, and for providing this constructive feedback. I'll address the squeaky bed issue. Regarding the detergent, I use standard detergent, which is also provided for my guests. You might find it helpful to bring your own in future, if that's something you're particularly sensitive to. Unfortunately there is not really anything I can do about the construction, other than pass on any concerns that guests might have. I have been checking in with every guest to understand if there are any problems, and I understand from the neighbor that all of the noisy work has now been completed.

Such a great location for us while we were selling our house in the neighborhood before moving across the country. This was a very comfortable home with a great kitchen and plenty of living and sleeping space for my husband and I and our 2 boys (8&5).
