Interaction with Guests
I try and give the guests as much privacy as they wish. I have also become friends with a few of the guests only because they were more interactive.
Our home is in the heart of Northern Palo Alto very close to Stanford University and downtown Palo Alto both about 1 mile away and accessible via walking, biking or public transportation.
1) There's a free shuttle from our home to the train station to get to SF

The attached TV/computer room is a shared room. There is a refrigerator filled with drinks for your convenience.
Everything in the guest house was great - very clean and true to the photos. The bathroom was new and very modern, which I liked. The heated bed is also very comfy and provided a good night's sleep.
I needed to stay for only one night and did not get to meet with Marie in person but everything went extremely smoothly, and my stay was pleasant. The place looks exactly like pictured. It's in a quiet neighborhood, very close to downtown.
Marie, her Nanny, and her family were very helpful getting me settled in, and otherwise gave me plenty of privacy. The cottage is very comfortable, clean, and well cared for and the location is wonderful.
An earlier reviewer mentioned the path not being well lit, and it appears that Marie has rectified the situation, as there were running lights all through the yard.
I would definitely stay here again should I return to Palo Alto.
This is a great place to stay in a great, and very quiet neighborhood, in Palo Alto. Very clean. It's a nice set up for one or two people to feel comfortable in at the end of the day. I would definitely stay here again.
Although I arrived late after a work dinner, Marie made me feel at home. Her cottage was cozy, clean and great for my quick one night stay. I look forward to stay there again when work brings me to PA.
Marie was very nice.
I only stayed there for one night on a business trip and she made sure access to the cottage was easy at any time of the day.
The cottage itself is quite nice and quiet in the more residential part of Palo Alto, a short ride from the downtown of Stanford University.
I would definitely come back and not hesitate to stay with Marie again.
