This a small, cute detached bedroom behind the main house, with private entrance. It is simple, quiet, charming, and private. Guests have access to all common areas of the main house. **IMPORTANT: there is NO BATHROOM IN THIS DETACHED ROOM. The guest bathroom, as well as an additional bathroom in case the guest bathroom is occupied, is inside the main house, just a few yards walk away.

The space
An updated 1948 house with garden views, trees, lots of light, character and charm in a quiet neighborhoody neighborhood of Menlo Park. Located at the very center of Silicon Valley, minutes (by car) from 101, the social network company, Stanford, Palo Alto, Sand Hill Road, 15min from San Francisco airport and 25-30 minutes from San Francisco and San Jose. 10min drive or 20min bike from the social network company (3 miles). 15min drive or 30min bike from Stanford campus (5 miles).

Guest access
Guests have access to the common areas of the house: kitchen, family room, dining/living room, patio, front and backyard, guest bathroom and second bathroom if the guest bathroom is occupied. Access to laundry too for stays of a week or more - it's in my bedroom so need to coordinate with me.

Other things to note
** Important: there is no bathroom in this room. The guest bathroom is inside the main house ie one must walk about twenty yards across the patio outside to get to it. Access to the 2nd bathroom if guest bathroom is already in use. No shoes in house/cottage. You are welcome to borrow slippers!

Although this is a smaller and simple room, there is now a portable Ikea closet in the cottage to hang your clothes, as well as a small dresser (not shown on the picture) so there's ample space for your clothes. I can provide additional storage if needed during your stay (eg for your suitcase).

There is a space heater for only source of heating, and there is a fan in case it gets a bit hot (no A/C). Please use in moderation and please turn off when you leave the room.

There is pretty good wifi throughout the property.

Location

Menlo Park, California, United States

I love that my neighborhood (the Menlo Park portion of 'North Fair Oaks') is quiet, green and 'neighborhoody'. It has a distinct character with a bit of a rural feel to it (eg no curb, few street lights, lots of trees, plenty of parking space) yet is so close to everything in the Valley, and very close to 101 for commuting. I like also that it is a mixed neighborhood of Menlo Park nestled between Atherton, Menlo Park and Redwood City, with a variety of lot sizes and a rather diverse demographic.

During your stay
I live in the home with my daughter. We are quite busy with school and work and give our guests space -- while also enjoying interacting with them when we're around. I have 3 Airbnb guest rooms so there are opportunities to interact with other guests if desired.
