The SpaceFully furnished bedroom with king sized bed and spacious closets. Roomy bathroom with shower and full vanity. "Trader Joe's" kitchenette with large microwave, coffee and tea pot with large selection of teas, toaster, and full sized refrigerator. Originally was used by Stanford medical students who never cooked as the cafeteria is open 24/7/365, so appliances for cooking take the place of a stove. Guest AccessOutdoor chairs available for sitting on the patio enjoying the sun or gazing at the stars. Interaction with GuestsHost lives next door and is available for questions and conversation during your stay. The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood is on the "fun" end of Stanford University because if you are visiting to see a sporting event you cannot get closer. Within a 5 minute walk you will be on the Rugby, Lacrosse and Soccer fields, a little further and you are on the Sunken Diamond for baseball or across for Women's Softball, next you will be near the football stadium, Angel Field and tennis courts and finally you will be close to Maples Pavilion where volleyball and basketball is played. All this right across the street from my suite. Getting AroundYes, there is both the Palo Alto free shuttle and Margaret shuttle that Stanford University runs as well as bus service along El Camino Real. At the University Ave. train station(within a easy walk) we have a new bike rental service run by the city. Other Things to NoteWe have a clothes washing/drying service.

The SpaceSweet but cozy room with dormer window looking out onto cherry blossom trees. Full size bed with new mattress, pillows and linens folds into a sofa when not in use. Freshly painted and decorated with original art. Stocked with a library about Palo Alto, the birthplace of Silicon Valley. Bath with two sinks, double shower, and separate toilet area. Room has lots of storage - six very large drawers one small closet and one storage closet. The house is a charming remodeled Victorian five blocks from downtown Palo Alto University Avenue and a mile from Stanford University. It is a quiet residential neighborhood with an elementary school across the street. Easy street parking and extremely safe area. I have three other rooms listed in the same house through AirBnB. If you are here for a longer stay or would like a little more room than this sweet but cozy room, please look at: "Garden room - walking distance to Stanford" - https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/2632537 "Sky Room in Downtown Palo Alto" - https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/4378059 "Peaceful Oasis Downtown Palo Alto" - https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/7853486 Check them out for more pictures (and to consider all options :-) Downtown Palo Alto with all of its coffee shops, restaurants, boutiques, high tech start-ups and venture capital offices is a 10 minute walk away in one direction. Town & Country shopping center with even more gorgeous browsing is 10 minutes walk in the other direction. For those visiting Stanford University, the free shuttle stops at several nearby locations and we can easily get you oriented. I can also arrange a local bike rental (the preferred method for getting around Stanford given the scarcity of parking on campus.) Stanford main gate is about a 20 minute walk away. I have two kids, but they never seem to be around anymore as they are chock full of school, sports, and other activities. Jake, our 20 lb ball of cream fluff pretending to be a dog, keeps me company as I work from home in my artist studio. He is a rescue we have determined to be a "mutta-doodle" (we know he is part poodle and hypo-allergenic with hair vs. fur.) If you are around for a couple of nights, I can arrange laundry access and some kitchen access. I can arrange for guest passes to a local gym and make reservations at the nearby massage spa. Also happy to be hired for airport pick-ups and drop-offs. Hablo castellano (de Argentina). Je parle Francais aussi. I have lived in Palo Alto since 1993, am very familiar with the area attractions, and more than happy to make suggestions for how to spend a free hour or half-day. I hope to make your visit as comfortable and fun as possible. Guest AccessWe have three outdoor seating areas surrounded by a colorful native and drought-tolerant garden for the guests to enjoy. Guests are also welcome to lounge in the living room with couches, piano, and friendly dog companion. The porch rockers and a comfy yard swing are other favorite hang-outs. Very limited kitchen access (guest coffee/tea area with fruits and treats plus a guest fridge and microwave) unless otherwise arranged. Bike rental (with helmet and lock) and laundry services available for an additional charge upon request. Interaction with GuestsI work from home and am very available to help you plan out your adventures, chose the tastiest dining sites, and otherwise enjoy your visit. The NeighborhoodVery quiet residential neighborhood with sidewalks and white picket fences and neighbors who know each other. Safe and peaceful. Parking is free and plentiful on the street right in front of the house. Outside of school hours, there is also a small parking lot across the street. I park my car on the street and neither I nor any guests have ever had issues with security/availability. There is no parking actually on the premises (small lot covered with garden and house). Easy access to everything you could possibly want: Five blocks from the "happening" center of town University Avenue, eight blocks from the Caltrain station, two supermarkets (Whole Foods and Trader Joes) within 5 min. walk, Stanford an easy 15 min. walk, .... REALLY well situated :-) Getting AroundWe are 8 blocks from the Caltrain station in downtown Palo Alto. There is a major North/South bus route a block away and the Stanford Marguerite shuttle stop is about five minute walk away. I can arrange private car transport from/to the airports (SFO, SJC, OAK) and around town for very reasonable fees. Other Things to NoteEach room is for ONE guest only. We do not allow children or other additional guests in the room. We have a 20lb muttadoodle (hypo-allergenic) rescue puppy named Julie who is very affectionate and loves laps. While she may bark at strangers approaching the house, it is usually with her tail wagging up a storm and she is exceedingly friendly to our guests. Parking is free and plentiful on the street right in front of the house. Outside of school hours, there is also a small parking lot across the street.

The SpaceThis apartment is located very close to all the restaurants and shops in downtown Palo Alto and yet it is tucked away in a quite street in front of a park. You really do get the best of both worlds. Within 3 to 5 minutes of walking you can reach several restaurants and shops in downtown. It is also just about a 10-12 minute walk to cal train station and Stanford University. The apartment itself has two bedrooms with a bathroom and a living room. It is also convenient to have the washer and dryer within the apartment. It is fully furnished with a big screen TV (with direct TV) and high speed wireless connection. If you are looking for a room because you are in the area for a couple of days or if you want to spend a few weeks/months at Stanford or if you are looking for a temporary room until you find your own place, this would be a great spot because of the location. If you have a car, you will not have any difficulty finding a parking spot as there is designated parking as well as plenty of street parking available.
