Welcome! Your private bedroom and newly remodeled bathroom are on the first floor of our prime midtown Palo Alto home. Your bedroom is 139sf with a queen bed, dresser, desk, chair and side table. This room has a beautiful new bath with a closet armoire in bath. There is access to WIFI, a family room TV and kitchen. You share this wing of the house with another guest with their own private bedroom and bath. We prefer long-term guests.

The space

Just inside our front door is an art-filled foyer with access to your entrance to a private bedroom (139sf), brand-new bathroom and closet. Share our family room (TV, cable, AppleTV, game systems, etc.), make a meal in the kitchen, or enjoy the outdoor BBQ. We are a friendly, busy family that enjoys company. Hopefully you love dogs because our pug and Cavalier King Charles spaniel will want to love you!

Guest access

You are welcome to use our downstairs, which has two TV areas, a library and a large kitchen. You're also welcome to use the barbecue outside.

Interaction with guests

You can be very private, or we will happily chat with you by the outdoor fire or over a glass of wine. We are east coasters who have lived in the bay area for 30 years and can tell you about what Northern California has to offer – indoors and out – including our favorite restaurants, galleries and music both in Palo Alto and San Francisco (where we lived for 16 years). If you are up early in the morning share a cup of coffee with us. We live in the house full-time and have two sons who live nearby and often stop by to watch a basketball game. We also have one son in college who comes home during summer and holidays.

Other things to note

Please note that our two dogs do shed, so we recommend that guests keep their doors closed during the day. The house is professionally cleaned every other Wednesday. They will clean your room and change your sheets if you place sheets on your bed before leaving.

LONGER STAYS: Guests choosing longer stays receive weekly or monthly discounts. Guests staying over 2 weeks, a $40 cleaning fee will be charged every two weeks and includes professional cleaners and a change of your sheets and towels. After the first fee paid through Airbnb, the subsequent payments are made directly to us.

A casa é muito bonita e as acomodações são excelentes. O meu quarto e banheiro privativo foram ótimos e eu também pude utilizar a cozinha para preparar refeições. Julia e Dave foram atenciosos com as minhas solicitações e em algumas oportunidades tivemos conversas agradáveis também. Thanks, Julia and Dave, for the very nice stay!
