Interaction with Guests
I am generally available anytime as I work from home. However, I do travel for work so there will be times that my husband will assist guests. I am available via text anytime. Please do not ring the doorbell after 8 pm as I have a two young daughters who might be sleeping.
The cottage is located in the Willows of Menlo Park which is conveniently close to downtown Palo Alto (University Avenue).
The Palo Alto CalTrain stop is about 1.5 miles from the cottage. There is a bus stop about .5 miles from the cottage. I also provide a road bike with a lock and basket for quick neighborhood trips.
Strict no pets allowed (absolutely no exceptions). There is only a king-sized bed and I will not provide an additional bed for children. Therefore, children must either sleep in the bed or in a pack-and-play which is provided by their parents. Finally, smoking is never allowed inside. I will only accommodate smoking outside.
I work in the Silicon Valley at a software company and manage the cottage as a side business. My husband, two daughters, and I live in the main house and the cottage is in the back of the property. I love to garden, decorate, sing, and play sports.
