900sf in historic neighborhood steps from the HP Garage. Walk downtown to dine or grab a bite at Whole Foods and curl up in front of home theater. Kitchenette, full bath, queen plus 2 single beds, and 2 desks. Skylights for fresh air and daylight.
We live in a great neighborhood with wonderful historic homes; it's a lovely place to walk, and convenient to everything. Our basement apartment has a separate entry and is spacious and clean, with giant screen theater, two large built-in desks, wi-fi, and a mini-kitchen.
Easy to walk to Caltrain to explore farther afield, or head over to Stanford--less than a mile away.
Guests have entire basement and can access it from a private, enclosed side-entry. Our family lives above, so you will likely encounter us occasionally, but we respect your privacy. A little outdoor table and chairs for your use are situated just outside your door. We have easy street parking and use of a temporary free parking tag. With some coordinating, we may be able to share one or two of our bikes.
We live upstairs and are happy to offer suggestions for what to do/where to eat locally.
I love meeting people from all over the world, and I am eager to share stories about my historic house (President Herbert Hoover dined here!) If you prefer your privacy, I am fine with that too.
There's a queen bed in the bedroom, and a day bed in the living area. The day bed is two twin mattresses; one is a pull out trundle under the main bed, but can be moved to be separate.
Please no smoking on premises. No pets. No gatherings of more than 8 people.
A Midwestern native happily transplanted to California, I love living in Palo Alto and being surrounded by a bounty of intelligent people and gorgeous scenery. I am a farmer's market junkie. I take full advantage of my surroundings by going on regular hikes, heading to the beach, going to museums and theaters, and attending classes at Stanford. My bike is my favorite form of transportation. I love reading and writing and am lucky enough to use them in my home tutoring business.
