House Rules

No smoking please!

There is parking on the street in front of the house. We provide a permit for you to hang in your rear view mirror - this permit is necessary Monday through Friday, 8am-5pm. Be sure to leave it in the cottage when you depart! Additionally, street cleaning is every Tuesday morning from 9-10am on alternating sides of the street. Check the signs at the end of the block because cars parked on the wrong side will DEFINITELY be ticketed.

It's very helpful to us if you can tell us the approximate times you will be arriving and departing (especially for weekday arrival/departure), so please send along that information if possible!

If you choose to leave the skylight open then please keep an eye on the weather and close it if rain is expected. If we see it open and it has begun to rain then we may knock on the door and ask you to close it. If you are not in the cottage then we may enter to close it ourselves.

If there are any problems with the cottage please let us know as soon as possible. One guest believed he was being an easy guest by not telling us that the hot water wasn't working. It turned out that the water heater was cracked and dumping water on the ground for a week - you should have seen our water bill that month!

Thanks for staying!

Great location, cute place. Only challenge was the unexpected heat w/o a/c but that would be a challenge anywhere in the area. Very close to shops, bars and restaurants.

We really enjoyed our time in Palo Alto! The cottage is very well located (walkable to shops and restaurants) and has all the amenities needed to stay comfortable for a couple of days; Good and stable internet connection, comfy bed and a well equipped kitchen. Thanks Teresa and Chris.

Chris and I try to stay very active with running, hiking, skiing, and biking. Chasing our two kids also keeps us busy! I really like knitting and reading as well, and he is a sport programmer and loves home repair projects.

We love world travel but haven't done that as much since the kids came along. My favorite trips of all time have been sailing trips in Greece and Thailand!
