Property description

As one renter said: 'My husband and I have stayed in many VRBO residences all over the world...but this one was exceptional. It is first and foremost a home. We loved the contemporary layout, the ease of access to the freeway, the beautiful garden that we could gaze at during our breakfast and the deck area where we could have a BBQ dinner and enjoy the lovely flowers. The home has a cooks kitchen and great dining area. Then there is a relaxing and cozy living room with as wonderful, large sofa. But the most amazing piece was the super comfortable 'sleep number' bed! This home is a beautiful haven in a busy world.'
Another renter said: 'The house met our needs perfectly. It has a welcoming, family feel to it. It is comfortable and well kept up. The kitchen is well-equipped. The satellite TV package carries more channels than one could wish for. The house has WiFi, which enabled us to conduct business from long-distance. The backyard is private and meticulously cared for. It is a pleasant place to spend time or to view from inside the house through glass doors. A morning newspaper was even part of the deal.'
And another renter put it this way: 'The house was beyond our expectations, and all the amenities of a true home are available. The house is well-appointed, with a great variety of books and music on discs. The nearby market and the coffee and doughnut shop were mandatory stops on my morning walks in the neighborhood.'

Car: Recommended

My home is close to Stanford University (5 mi.), Palo Alto (4 mi.), and downtown Menlo Park (2.5 mi.) Menlo Park and Palo Alto are attractive, easy-to-navigate college towns with fine restaurants, multiple coffee shops, sports bars, boutique shopping, and movie theaters.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: My career was in education. I was headmaster of two schools for 30 years. When I retired, I moved to Palo Alto to be close to my two daughters and their families. The picture is of me and my daughter Stephanie, who is General Manager of the Cardinal Hotel in downtown Palo Alto. She would be the main contact person for renters staying in my home.

Why the Owner Chose Menlo Park:
Proximity to Stanford, weather, college town, major shopping center, and quiet and secure property all make this a remarkable and appealing location.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Modern design and excellent condition of home, secure and quiet location, outside deck and attractive lawn, and easy access to 101 are among the many benefits of staying in my home.
