Our studio apartment is a short walk to University Circle (Four Seasons and office buildings). Across from creek, close to buses, walk to Cal Train! Quiet, peaceful, "in-law" studio apartment. Nibble in garden! Let us know what extras you may need!
Fully furnished studio apartment. Full bath and kitchen. Full size bed and possible additional foam bed if needed. Originally built as an in-law unit. No TV. Wi-fi and Wired internet. Private entrance. Near Stanford and the Silicon Valley. No smoking. No pets. Bus to Stanford one block away. Cafe and grocery about 0.4mi away, an easy walk through suburban streets.
Street parking. We need to guide you to the best parking ideas, depending on the day and time. No reserved parking spaces. This is an urban setting in our area, so parking can be competitive.
Very close to Hwy. 101 if your destination involves driving. About half way between the San Jose airport and San Francisco International Airport. Many restaurants and stores about one mile away, on the stretch of University Ave. that is the commercial district for Stanford University. Easy bicycle ride to Stanford. Very bicycle friendly area. It's flat, and there are bicycle lanes everywhere.
We live in the adjoining house and are more than happy to give you ideas for food, sights, entertainment. You can feel free to harvest and eat greens from the garden. Our chickens may have an egg or two to offer up, as well!
Guests have their own entrance (on the East side of the house). Studio has separate kitchen, bathroom, bed and sitting area! Some guests spend time on West side of house. We can sometimes accommodate laundry request. Let's discuss this!
Interaction with Guests
We live in the house, and would plan to be on site during Guest's stays. We are all under the same roof! Generally we like to meet guests, but sometimes due to schedules a guest will come and go before we interact.
This is a great neighborhood. It is "mixed" insofar as houses, apartments and office buildings and the Four Seasons Hotel! Close to 101 Freeway, downtown Palo Alto and an easy, walk to Cal Train. We are across the street from San Francisquito Creek, so there are lots of gorgeous trees and nature.
We are half a block to the bus stop. Easy ride (or walk) to the Cal Train station! We have no reserved parking, so this can sometimes be a challenge. About 25 minute taxi ride from either San Jose or San Francisco Airports. It is possible from SFO to take BART to Cal Train south to Palo Alto, then hop in the bus to University and Woodland!
Other Things to Note
We are happy to share our ideas for shopping, eating, drinking. Please let us know if you have any particular needs. We would be happy to get things set up in advance of your arrival!
We hope you enjoy your stay with us. Feel free to harvest from the garden (Morganne will show you what is edible.) We are all under the same roof and share 2 walls with the Studio. Let's be mutually respectful of noise and late night activity! We are always so grateful for tidy departures! Smoking only outside. Sorry no pets.
What a wonderful place! Has everything I needed. Morganne was a wonderful host! Would definitely stay again
My stay at Creekside Oasis was very nice. Morganne provided the transportation to and from the airport at a reasonable rate. A peaceful quiet neighborhood, close to Stanford University which was the purpose of my visit. Provided plenty of helpful advice about the Palo Alto area. Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice place to stay with friendly hosts.
Fresh eggs! Garden-picked arugula!
Morganne was very kind and welcoming, her place is really an oasis in the otherwise crazy Palo Alto. It is exactly as described and pictured. It's roomy, the kitchen is good, the bed comfortable, the surroundings charming. Parking could be easier, but in with Morganne's direction, it was fine.
Morganne and her husband were extremely gracious and accommodating. They were available to us without being intrusive, and were very receptive and responsive when dealing with our uncertain arrival time. The studio is charming and spacious, and the neighborhood walks are beautiful. Absolutely recommend!
Morganne is a wonderful host and her place is convenient, clean and the perfect spot to stay when visiting Palo Alto. There is parking right out front and you can easily make the walk to the Four Seasons if you really want to splurge on a meal or spa!! We will be back to visit soon.
We didn't know that eggs could be so good until Morganne gave us some from her chickens. Absolutely lovely hideaway, we had an amazing time.
I am a native Californian. (I was given the name Robin at birth, and some of my reviews reflect that name!) I lived the first half of my life in Los Angeles and gratefully moved to San Francisco in 1990. It's awesome. I love theatre, storytelling, dancing, juggling, fresh, home cooked food. I am an enthusiastic entrepreneur and currently have 2 businesses, one high tech and one low tech. We have 3 amazing Farmer's Markets every Sunday morning a short drive away. A foodies heaven (esp. in the summer and fall!) My husband, Damon, is an alternative physician - a very creative and inspired healer. We enjoy travelling and meeting new people and are always excited to have folks enjoy our awesome studio and garden-- our Creekside Oasis.
