Charming Home, Steps from Stanford and Silicon Valley
The house is beautifully and comfortably appointed and includes three bedrooms (1Q, 1F and 2 Twins) plus a pull out queen size sofa and can easily accommodate 6 to 8. There is one full bath as well as an outdoor private shower in the garden. Th …
We quickly became right at home in this wonderful jewel. The house was clean, decorated beautifully, and easy for our crawling 10 month old and 3 year old daughters. The backyard provided not only a calming place for eating, but a safe exploration zone for them as well. We briefly met the owner and she immediately ensured we were welcome with child-safe foods and brownie bites as well. My husband walked to Stanford daily quite easily and we often accompanied him through the neighborhood by foot and stroller. It is a quiet neighborhood with families and great for exploring. We hope to book again next year!
My family (two adults and two small children) spent an entire month at Faith’s home over the summer of 2012 and had the most wonderful time. She was there to greet us upon our arrival and the house was sparkling clean and ready for moving in. The home is well kept and beautifully decorated, and we felt right at home throughout our stay. There was ample closet space, plenty of towels and linens and some goodies in the kitchen and pantry. The house has a great flat screen TV and she even subscribed to children’s channels at our request. Faith had instructions for how to use every kitchen appliance and basic maintenance of the home (garbage collection, mail, etc.) in her absence. The garden out back is like something out of a magazine with strawberry patches, blueberry bushes, lemon trees and amazing assortment of flowers.
Most importantly, Faith was a gracious host, extremely understanding and very responsive to our needs and in answering even the most mundane questions for a family new to the Menlo Park area. The neighborhood itself is quiet and close knit, yet very close to downtown Menlo Park and Palo Alto. But the house with the white picket fence stands out as something special. We have every intention of staying again at Faith’s house should we return to the Menlo Park area and recommend it to anyone considering staying there.
Our family was anticipating our visit to the Bay area for our daughter's graduation from Stanford for 4 years! We couldn't have chosen a better home for our stay! Every aspect of the home was absolutely perfect for us. The gardens are thriving and lush & the patio was our favorite place to congregate after a busy day on campus. The owner went above and beyond to make us feel at home! I would recommend this home to anyone visiting the Bay area. THANK YOU!
A group of us regathered in the area after years away for a long weekend to enjoy riding our old routes in the area. The house was perfectly located for our purposes, and offered a very pleasant base for relaxation after our adventures. The owner was very organized, professional, and gracious. The deposit was returned promptly. Highly recommended.
We had a great experience staying in this cozy and beautiful rental home during our vacation in U.S. The neigbourhood is also quite and beautiful. We would definitely recommend to our friends.
4 of us stayed in this house for a week. It is such a charming house! At the end of the stay, we very much felt like we were at home. This was a business trip for us, but it was quite convenient location, for example, to go to Stanford Univ.
I certainly would like to come back again!
6 of my friends and I stayed at this wonderful home for the weekend of the Stanford/Oregon football game from 11/10-11/13. The location couldn't be more perfect for anything Stanford or mid-peninsula. Stanford's campus is close enough to walk if you so desire. Groceries, upscale shopping, restaurants/bars, and access to I-280 are all within a 5 minute drive. The home itself is absolutely charming. The pictures do not do it justice. We particularly enjoyed the back patio where we cooked out and had dinner on our first night. The neighborhood is equally charming. We were so impressed with it that we looked at a listing of a home that is for sale a couple of doors down to see if we could swing it! Our host couldn't have been more accommodating. She's very professional, very nice, and she made the arrangements very easy and comfortable. The house was very clean and very well maintained. I would recommend this house to friends/relatives without hesitation.
So it depends what you are looking for, but for me and for my family, Faith's house was the perfect base for two weeks in the Valley, combining work and holiday. West Menlo Park is a lovely area and the house is seconds from Sand Hill Road, so very convenient for US 280, Stanford and the heart of Silicon Valley. Despite that the area has a quiet and peaceful family-oriented atmosphere and it s a short drive to downtown Menlo Park. The house is lovely and feels more like a home than a rental property. It has a lovely garden, a great patio and all the facilities we needed. Faith is a bonus, she was the perfect host, helpful but unobtrusive, and she was very patient with us when we had some difficulties finalising our booking. We'll be back.
