**price reduced as backyard is under construction - Sept2017** A private cottage in the backyard of the main house, in quiet West Menlo Park. Ideally located, two-mile walk to the center of Stanford Campus, downtown Palo Alto, and Sand Hill. Small kitchen (two burners, small sink, mini refrigerator) and patio.
This is a one-bedroom cottage located in our backyard. The cottage has a private entrance and shares no walls with the main house. Cottage has a full-sized bed and French doors that open onto a private patio in the backyard. Small kitchen appropriate for "easy prep" meals (two burners, sink, mini fridge, essential kitchenware). Also a walk-in closet with plenty of storage space for extra luggage. A parking space in the driveway is included. We will provide some snacks and beverages to get you through the first day. Internet included (legal use only please!). We are centrally located to Stanford Campus, Menlo Park Caltrain, Sand Hill Road, and Downtown Palo Alto. Floor heater provided, but no central heating.
Over the years, the Cottage has hosted many Stanford athletes, Law School students, and interns, and we love hosting our Air BnB visitors!
Guests have access to the cottage and the adjoining backyard patio, which has some patio furniture and receives good sun in the mornings. Guests have a parking space in the driveway (not carport please).

We are excited about helping with your visit. We are Bay Area natives, and can make any travel/dining/site-seeing recommendations you need. Very responsive over email (I check waaay too often!). My parents own the house, and I live about two miles away in Palo Alto. I help my parents run the AirBnb and will handle all your questions/concerns, but you are more likely to meet my parents in the driveway than me. They are friendly people too :)
The bedroom is a cozy ~200 sq. ft. There is a dresser and bedside tables, but no desk. (There are outdoor table/chairs on the patio.)
There is no TV in the cottage. WiFi is available.
There is an un-covered pool in the backyard. For this reason, we don't recommend this cottage for anyone traveling with very young children.
I'm flexible on long-term rental pricing - please message me.
**There is currently (Oct 2016) construction on the house next door. It can be loud during construction hours (~8am-5pm), although the house is nearly complete and it is getting quiter.**
Please no smoking.
No hosting parties.
Please observe quiet time after 10pm (it's a quiet neighborhood).
In general, please just be respectful of the space!
Small Dogs considered (small cleaning fee) - please message us.
Check-out by 11am and check-in 3pm.
My fiancée and I have been traveling on Air BnB for years (Texas, London, France, New York, Ohio, etc.), and now we are excited to start hosting. My parents own a house with a small cottage in the backyard. My fiancee and I are managing the Air BnB on their behalf. We live two miles away. We would love to host you!!
