Cute 2-bedroom, 1-bath cottage on a private drive in Sharon Heights/West Menlo Park. Within walking or easy biking distance of Stanford University & Stanford Hospital and SLAC National Accelerator Center.

NOTE: San Mateo County Zoning Regulations prohibit “The short-term rental of rooms, for a period of less than 30 consecutive days” in most residential areas. This includes Menlo Park, Portola Valley, Redwood City, San Carlos, Woodside and many other cities.


Cute 2-bedroom, 1-bath cottage on a private drive in Sharon Heights/West Menlo Park. Within walking or easy biking distance of Stanford University & Stanford Hospital and SLAC National Accelerator Center and the Sand Hill Road venture capital corridor. By car, less than 5 minutes from Hwy 280. Two local shopping districts are within walking distance and include a U.S. Post Office, a gas station, 24-hour Safeway, CVS pharmacy, 2 Starbucks, 2 delis, and The Dutch Goose local landmark student and family pub.

Walking distance to the middle of Stanford campus is only 2.0 miles, 38 minutes. Walking distance to Stanford Hospital or clinics is 1.6 miles, 32 minutes. The Stanford Driving Range is even closer, open to the public and very reasonably priced at only $3 for 25 balls!

Also within walking distance are Las Lomitas Elementary and La Entrada Middle Schools. This is an ideal set-up for a out-of-towners wanting to spend time with friends or family in the area.

The cottage has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and includes:

• master bedroom with king-sized bed, nightstands, and dresser
• 2nd bedroom with double bed & foam sofa which folds out to make a 3rd bed
• full bath with combination tub/shower, sink and storage
• new, high-efficiency washer & dryer conveniently located in cupboard in far corner of the spacious kitchen
• living room with built-in bookshelves & windowed wall to the backyard
• well-worn but super comfortable over-sized sofa set
• decorative fireplace (no wood-burning allowed)
• private, shaded backyard with lawn, mature foliage, and 3 giant Coast redwood trees
• wisteria-arbored patio with outdoor table and chairs
• plenty of closet space
• all utilities are included: gas & electric, water, weekly garbage & recycling
• bi-weekly gardening service keeps grass trimmed and yard neat

Fully equipped dine-in kitchen includes refrigerator, oven, gas stove, small automatic dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave and coffee maker. Table and chairs comfortably seat up to 6.

• high-speed internet
• washer & dryer in kitchen utility cupboard (supplies included!)
• all-cotton quality bed linens; down comforters and pillows
• ample supply of towels (please bring your own toiletries)
• 36” TV (broadcast TV, but no cable)
• energy-efficient heating system with ‘smart’ thermostat
• off-street parking space on the private drive

Tucked back from the street on a private driveway, shared with only one other house. Includes convenient off-street parking. West Menlo Park is full of bike paths and nice, easy walks. Cottage is less than 3 miles from the closest entrance to the Stanford “Dish Walk,” a 5-mile paved path through the foothills with spectacular views of the entire Bay, from San Francisco to San Jose! And there’s lots of great hiking in the surrounding foothills.

There is a separate studio apartment unit attached to the cottage, rented separately on airbnb. If you are interested in renting the studio for extra guests or family members, please let us know.

Many of our guests are international scholars coming to teach, research or study at Stanford. Many of them prefer not to rent a car and have been happy to be walking or biking distance from campus. If you'd like to bike, we have a spare bike we rent you at a nominal cost: $5 a day, $25 a week or $75 a month plus $150 fully refundable deposit. It's a medium-sized 15-speed Huffy with handbrakes.

We are also less than 30 minutes’ drive from both San Francisco (SFO) and San Jose (SJC) airports, except during rush hours, when it’s of course longer.

Alternatively, you can take the train from SFO airport—not fast, but very inexpensive:
(1) BART directly from SFO to Millbrae CalTrain station (about 15 min, approx $4)
(2) train to Menlo Park (under 30 minutes, approx $5)
(3) then right down Santa Cruz Ave from the station (20-minute brisk walk or very short taxi ride).

We live right next door and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the area or provide recommendations, and are available if you need any assistance once you've arrived.

Will consider pets with solid references and an additional fully refundable security deposit of $250.

Please email details of your needs.

We have maintained the cottage as a shoe-free space. We ask that you keep shoes off indoors to ensure that the floor is extra-clean for yourself and other guests.

We are very diligent about recycling everything possible, which our excellent local recycling service makes possible, which encourages us to recycle over 50% of all waste. They make it easy, with glass, metal, plastic and clean paper can all be recycled in the same container, and composting in another. Of course we provide details in the house manual.

No smoking allowed on our property. No exceptions.

Comcast, our high-speed ISP, expressly forbids illegal downloads using bit-torrent or similar technology. Unfortunately, there have been some issue with this in the past, which is why we need to make a point of this.

We stayed here with our 17mo. old while visiting family in the area. It was a really great home base where family could come hang out with the little guy. Only bummer was, as parents who are in for the night after the baby goes down at 6pm, we thought there would be cable TV, as shown in the amenities list, but there wasn't. I did see later that in the written description it says no cable, only broadcast, but then I feel that box shouldn't be checked at all :/ Other than that, small and comfortable space in a nice *quiet* neighborhood, which was important to us. Walkable to a Starbucks and a couple restaurants, and about 1.5mi to downtown Menlo Park (5min drive/25min walk). Laurel was very nice and easy to work with! Would definitely recommend (as long as you aren't as dependent on TV as we are! hah)

Hi Alia, I'm so sorry you weren't able to access the cable channels! We DO have cable TV; I wish you had let us know right away so we could have solved the problem. To minimize the chance of future guests experiencing this problem, we'll add more details about the settings etc to the reference binder. So glad your stay was otherwise positive! Laurel

Super wonderful stay. Laurel and her family were very communicative, and were so kind to give me a tour of the place when we stayed! Staying in a home rather than a business hotel made everything overall very enjoyable. All the amenities were great, and the beds were soft and comfy.

We had a very pleasant experience. The location, the privacy are excellent. And the kitchen is fully stocked with pots and pans, dishes, better than most homes I stayed in before. You can cook, bake, grill, everything is there. All the details are considered and provided. Laurel had even left us shampoo+conditioner+shower gel, as well as all sorts of cleaning supplies for the bathroom and kitchen. Laurel and Steve were very responsive towards any questions/needs we had. I even left some laundry in the dryer and Laurel mailed them to me immediately. Thank you Steve and Laurel.

My husband Steve and I are long-time local residents; I was born in Palo Alto, so a real native and Steve is from England. We were high-school sweethearts (his dad was at SLAC for a year), then we reconnected 20+ years later & got married! Now we're empty nesters with 4 kids in our blended family, all living in California. We have a successful home-based marketing agency, so we’re around most of the time for your convenience and security.

We love hosting and also traveling-- to my husband's native UK (lots of family & friends still there). Have been to China, Cuba, Mexico and much of western Europe. Hoping to travel more in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

We love taking road trips in the Western US (our Tesla is our biggest splurge!), and exploring big cities, especially NYC & LA. Our favorite trip of all was a family stay in New Orleans-- fabulous music, food, history & people!

Since Airbnb is asking, the "5 things we can't live without" are (not necessarily in this order): movies & music, exercise, NPR & BBC, our kids & our cats.

We are Michael Pollan converts and think his 7-word food philosophy sums it up beautifully: "eat food (as opposed to food-like products), not too much, mostly plants." We buy local, sustainable, organic as much as we can.
