About Heidi Fertig

I am a Palo Alto native. I work in high tech for a large company in Palo Alto. I have lived in Menlo Park for over 20 years. I love the weather, the neighborhoods, the people and overall community. It is a great place to live and a wonderful vacation destination. So many things to do, sights to see and explore. I have a lovely home nestled in a peaceful and private setting and I enjoy sharing this property with travelers visiting the area.

Why Heidi Fertig chose Menlo Park

Close to Stanford, Palo Alto, and easy freeway access to Silicon Valley companies and both the San Jose and San Francisco airports. Competitive rates to high-priced hotels in the area. Private, quiet and comfortable. Free Direct TV, web-streaming and wireless. I do offer monthly and longer-term rentals. Please inquire about my rates.

What makes this Apartment unique

New apartment set on beautiful private property on a flag lot off the street. Lovely, tree-lined Menlo Park neighborhood, across from the San Francisquito creek. Easy walking distance to neighborhood coffee house and downtown Palo Alto.

                                                    Lovely Unit, Convenient to Stanford

                                                    Gilian F.-

                                                    Heidi's compact but comfortable apartment is spotless, comfortable and has everything you need for a stay in the Stanford/Menlo Park area. The unit provides a dining area, complete with microwave, toaster oven, hotplate, refrigerator/freezer and all manner of coffee-making devices, as well as the necessary dishware and cooking implements. There is a comfy leather chair and ottoman in which to relax and an equally delicious bed in a separate room. The bathroom has a shower, generous countertop and sink, and soap, shampoo and similar amenities are provided. Heidi was even kind enough to provide a bottle of wine upon arrival.

                                                    The property offers a large garden in the back with lots of outdoor space in which to relax and a big lawn on which to sprawl, as well as to comfortable chairs right outside the front door in which to enjoy the amazingly fragrant air. If you have a car, there is plenty of room for parking.

                                                    Heidi is a delightful host, responsive and flexible. There is no question that I would stay in this property again next time I am in the area.

                                                    Cozy and Cute!

                                                    Jana D.Danville, IL

                                                    We really enjoyed our trip to this property in Menlo Park. The studio was clean and comfortable. We loved the cute coffee shop that was within walking distance, and there were lots of great restaurants in the area. The property owner was great! If you are interested in a full kitchen, this is not the property for you. There was a toaster oven, coffee pot, and refrigerator for our use though, which was all we needed. We also appreciated the use of the laundry facility. Great set up and nice location!

                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                    Thanks so much Jana. It was a pleasure to have you both. Please come back again.



                                                    Amazing place. Great location.

                                                    Guthrie D.EAGLE BUTTE

                                                    This is a great place to stay, located in a nice neighborhood. Close enough to the Stanford campus for one less lazy than me to walk. I looked at hotel rooms in the vicinity only to find $400-$600 price tags per night. This is a comfortable, clean alternative that I would recommend to anyone and will frequent on my business trips to the University. Thank you very much Heidi, I enjoyed my stay.

                                                    Owner's Response:


                                                    It was a pleasure to have you and glad you found us. I look forward to your next visit.



                                                    Amazing place to call home for 3 months!

                                                    Jenna L.

                                                    I stayed at Heidi’s place for 3 months during a travel nurse assignment and I could not have been more comfortable! The place is super cute and cozy and exactly as pictured. Heidi was an amazing host, very responsive with anything I needed! Her cleaner, Elizabeth, also does a fabulous job, the place is kept very neat and tidy! Heidi also went out of her way countless times to make sure I was comfortable and feeling included, she even invited me to her family’s Thanksgiving party because she knew I was far from home! The area is quiet and secluded, but downtown Palo Alto is a 5-10 minute drive away, super easy but you’ll need a car. There’s also a really cute coffee place Zoe’s that is in walking distance that I went to a few times, very good coffee/food! I honestly had such a nice time staying at Heidi’s, I left feeling like I was part of the family! I would definitely stay here again!!!

                                                    Very clean, well maintained and private experience.

                                                    Viola M.

                                                    The owner was very nice and the property accurately matched the description. I would absolutely return.

                                                    A very comfortable stay

                                                    Hugh J.

                                                    Heidi's apartment in Menlo Park was perfect for our needs. We were in town for a Stanford reunion, and the location was perfect for both on-campus and off-campus activities. Heidi was very helpful with directions and brief, pleasant conversations. The facilities are very comfortable. We'll stay at this apartment on future trips to the Palo Alto area.

                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                    Thank you Hugh. Such a pleasure to have you both. Looking forward to you coming back.
