The SpaceThis simple and quiet cottage is in a wonderful Palo Alto location. Three blocks from downtown Palo Alto, a half mile from the bus and train station and Stanford mall, and 1.5 miles from the center of Stanford's campus. It's easy to get here and get around even with no car! We're also across the street from a lovely park, in case you're visiting with kids. The cottage bedroom has a queen size bed that we have been told is very soft and luxurious. The bathroom is newly renovated with a tile shower and floor. There is a small kitchen with a microwave, cooktop, breakfast bar, and skylight which connects to the living room. There is free wi-fi and an in-unit washer and dryer. The parking is on-street and plentiful. We provide you with a temporary parking permit to hang in your window while you're here. We can make a port-a-crib available for your use. I keep the calendar updated, so you should assume that if dates you are interested in are shown as not available, then they are not. Also I will not accept reservations more than three months in advance. I absolutely will not accept reservations for stays longer than 6 weeks. We really appreciate any feedback our guests have on how to make our cottage more comfortable! Guest AccessGuests will have the entire cottage to themselves. The entrance to the cottage is off a patio that is shared with the main house. During summer months we typically keep a table and chairs on the patio and you are welcome to enjoy those. Interaction with GuestsWe typically try to greet guests as soon as we see them after they arrive and then will chit chat if we see them on the patio or driveway after that. We are very happy to chat more though if you're interested. I especially like recommending my favorite restaurants and places to visit in the area as well as hearing more about what brings people to the area. The NeighborhoodI love how near our neighborhood is to so many great shops and restaurants. Getting AroundPublic transit is very convenient - we are about a half mile from the bus and train stations. Parking is on street and easy to find. It is possible, but annoying, to get to our house from the airport using public transit. I recommend a rented car, taxi, or shuttle. Other Things to NoteThe door has a combination lock and you can check yourself in. The combination is included in the house manual which is emailed to you when your reservation is finalized. Our check-in/check-out times are often flexible. Please feel free to inquire when you make your reservation if you would like an adjustment to these times and we will accommodate you as best we can.

The SpaceMy 800 square-foot condo is part of a 4-unit building in downtown Palo Alto. It's cozy, tastefully decorated, and full of light. One bedroom has a queen bed and the second has a twin size futon. There is high speed wifi internet and a large tv with cable, including HBO. Keurig coffee maker and washer/dryer are some of the comforts of home that are available. Clean towels will be provided and both beds will be made up with fresh linens. My home is in an area with lots of restaurants and a few bars, but it is unusual to hear any noise from people on the street. You can sometimes hear Caltrain, but it is not bothersome and the transportation option close by is a huge benefit. Street parking in the neighborhood is readily available in the evenings and on weekends. The detached garage is also available. Guest AccessThis is a second floor unit, with stairs up from the street level. Interaction with GuestsI will likely not be around, but I am reachable by cell phone if you want any advice about the area or if you need anything at all. There is a code lock on the door, and I will send access information in advance of arrival. The NeighborhoodPalo Alto. Restaurants, shopping, Stanford all within a two block walk. It doesn't get any better than this. Getting AroundOne of the highlights of this location is that public transportation is less than two blocks outside the door: Caltrain, Stanford Marguerite shuttle. It is easy to get to San Francisco, any of the local airports, Stanford, etc. I am happy to help. Other Things to NoteThis is one of the only homes in the area with central air conditioning. In the heat of the summer, it will make your stay much more comfortable.

Interaction with GuestsWe live in the main house and are available to answer any questions about the cottage and local area (shops, restaurants, how to get around etc.). We also provide a detailed information guide about the cottage and the neighborhood. The NeighborhoodThe cottage is in a great location on the line between Menlo Park and Palo Alto on a quiet residential street with very little car traffic. It is a 15 minute stroll to all the restaurants on University Avenue in Palo Alto. The Stanford campus is adjacent and it is about a 30 minute walk to the quad. Depending on your destination on campus it could be less (hospital) or more (business school). Also within a 15 minute walk are the Stanford shopping mall, and downtown Menlo Park. Trader Joe's and Safeway are also within walking distance. Getting AroundThe cottage is within easy walking/biking distance to Stanford campus and Stanford hospital. There is good freeway access (to Highways 101 and 280). Extensive public transportation is within a 10-15 minute walk - the Palo Alto transport hub with Caltrain and buses, access to the Stanford Marguerite, as well as the Menlo Park Caltrain station. Other Things to NoteThere is off-street parking for one car. If you have more than one car, you can park, the second car can park on the street with a permit which we will provide. We have a bike to lend you if you would like to use it.

Guest AccessThere's a pool as well as in-unit washer/dryers. There's a high end gym about five blocks away that charges about $20 a time to work out (and they obviously have longer term memberships too). There's also an Olympic sized pool in Menlo Park only about twenty blocks away. Interaction with GuestsI give guests my cellphone as well as return email almost instantly. I'm a nerd so I'm constantly online... I care about your stay with all great reviews as proof (except one horrible problem tenant - we've all had one). Professional steam cleaning regularly, no pets, ongoing cleaning services available directly with housekeeper. I also pay another resident in the complex to look after my guests for emergencies, lost keys etc. One other thing, smoking is not allowed in the condo or even in the common areas or balconies. The NeighborhoodThis is in downtown Palo Alto - walk to the best restaurants in the Bay Area, coffee, a high end gym, Whole Foods etc. Downtown Palo Alto is the priciest and most desirable place to live in the Pennisula - (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) etc. call it their home. Getting AroundUber is cheap and convenient and the train station (Caltrains) is walking distance. Zipcar is also at the train station about six blocks away. I can set up helicopter transportation for a price. (kidding) Other Things to NoteThis was my personal residence for years. It is unlike any rental place - everything in it is top of the line. If you are dissatisfied with corporate housing where everything is "just cheap enough to work" you will love my place. It's a home away from home.
