WEST MENLO TREE-TOP STUDIO
Modern, sunlit, airy studio apartment; top story above our detached garage. Guests comment on how light it is, with windows all around--but of course you can draw the blinds for more privacy or filtered light.
Our guests appreciate how clean and fresh our studio is. In order to maintain this environment for all guests, we have a strict NO SMOKING policy, no exceptions. We also ask you to respect our no shoes (to keep the cottage extra-clean). We have extra slippers if you like! And Menlo Park is a very green city; we encourage recycling, and easily meet our city's target of over 50% waste recycled.

My husband Steve and I are long-time local residents; I was born in Palo Alto, so a real native and Steve is from England. We were high-school sweethearts (his dad was at SLAC for a year), then we reconnected 20+ years later & got married! Now we're empty nesters with 4 kids in our blended family, all living in California. We have a successful home-based marketing agency, so we’re around most of the time for your convenience and security.
We love hosting and also traveling-- to my husband's native UK (lots of family & friends still there). Have been to China, Cuba, Mexico and much of western Europe. Hoping to travel more in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
We love taking road trips in the Western US (our Tesla is our biggest splurge!), and exploring big cities, especially NYC & LA. Our favorite trip of all was a family stay in New Orleans-- fabulous music, food, history & people!
Since Airbnb is asking, the "5 things we can't live without" are (not necessarily in this order): movies & music, exercise, NPR & BBC, our kids & our cats.
We are Michael Pollan converts and think his 7-word food philosophy sums it up beautifully: "eat food (as opposed to food-like products), not too much, mostly plants." We buy local, sustainable, organic as much as we can.
