Tranquil 3 bd/3 bath redwood home with 3 outside decks, porch and hot tub. Short walk to great downtown restaurants and shops, Stanford and Caltrain.
This house was originally built in 1906 and has been completely modernized to take advantage of our beautiful Northern California weather. You will enjoy the cozy feel of the main house as well as relax on the back deck or the hot tub surrounded by rhododendrons and California Redwoods.
This house is in the heart of the heart of Silicon Valley, (two blocks from the Packard Garage) walking distance to downtown shops, great restaurants, Whole Foods Market, Stanford University, the Stanford Mall, numerous parks and public transportation. A short drive to the headquarters of major Silicon Valley companies.
The 3 bedrooms, (one king, one queen, one single) each open to lovely outside, furnished decks. Two of the bedrooms also include sleeping lofts which are perfect for children or young adults (bringing the actual occupancy up to 7+). There are three recently remodeled bathrooms with slate, copper and brass fixtures, two of which have rain shower as well as handheld shower heads. There is also a bathtub.
The living spaces are furnished with craftsmen style hardwood furniture and there are three fireplaces (currently electric), giving the house an overall warm, inviting feel.
The full kitchen is complete with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, 6 burner stove, and microwave. You’ll find the kitchen stocked with coffee, tea and condiments. There is a sunlit breakfast nook off the kitchen, perfect for starting your day.
In the family room there is a 60 inch HDTV, DISH and Apple TV. There are speakers set up for your iPod and the house has a 100gb internet with wifi throughout. There is an office/study with a large oak desk, and comfortable chairs (just in case you need to get some work done).
* There is a private entrance, standalone cottage on the property, separated by an 8 x 30 foot “moving wall”, which is closed to provide complete privacy to both buildings. (we are often traveling but sometimes quietly come and go).

Linda and Don and are long time Palo Alto residents. We've worked in technology since the early days of Silicon Valley. We love to travel and are making our home and cottage available to others so they can enjoy it while we get out to see more of the world we love.
We enjoy meeting other hosts as we travel and appreciate that they've made their properties available, so we thought we'd join the party and do the same. We are social by nature and love to visit and hear your stories - but we also appreciate privacy and the need to rest and relax at your destination. (If we're in town, we'll be as visible or as invisible as you like).
While not planning our next adventure, Linda is a consultant in the event space while Don advises tech start-ups and works with investors on the next, next thing. We have a house in the High Sierras, which calls us mostly in the spring and fall. Currently, we can generally be found in the house or cottage (whichever one is not rented), but are looking forward to traveling and possibly living overseas in the not too distant future.
Our goal is to make sure your stay exceeds your expectations and we stand ready to do everything we can to make sure that happens. We're looking forward to hearing how we can improve your experience, so please don't hesitate to advise us on even the smallest of details.
