PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THE DIRECTIONS TO OUR HOME before your arrival. We are located off the street, down a long, private driveway. Interaction with GuestsWe are happy to share our home and hospitality with you. Your room and bath are very private and located in another hallway, away from our own rooms, so you can have all the privacy you like.
We respect your privacy and know you will respect ours. If you have any special needs, just let us know in advance and we will do our best to accommodate you. We look forward to hosting you and appreciate that you have chosen to stay with us. The NeighborhoodWe are located in the Menlo Oaks neighborhood, between Bay Road and Coleman Avenue. We are in the unincorporated area of Menlo Park--that means centuries-old oak and redwood trees, no sidewalks, privacy, and peace and quiet. Mark Zuckerberg's Company, Stanford University and Hospital, and Sand Hill Road are all just minutes away. We are literally in the heart of Silicon Valley, equidistant from SJC and SFO. Even OAK is close by. Getting AroundEasy to get around, close to 101, 84, and downtown Menlo Park and Palo Alto; 20 minutes to 280. Good to have a car, and there is plenty of parking available on the property. If you'd like to go to San Francisco or San Jose for the day, but don't have a car, I can drive you to the Cal-Train station, (just 5 minutes away). Also, UBER is very accessible here. If you need a ride somewhere, let us know in advance and we may be able to accommodate you. Other Things to NoteDo you need a ride to or from the airport? A cab will cost between $85-$125. I'll be happy to drive you for a fee of $30 either way. Just let me know ahead of time.
If you are traveling with children or a third guest, we have an additional bedroom & ensuite available--check out our Beatles bedroom on our Profile page. Special 50% discount when booked along with the Paris room!
