Located in a convenient and quiet neighborhood in Mid-town Palo Alto, this comfortably appointed bedroom is available for 1-7 nights at time. It has a separate entrance in a beautiful garden and is a short walk to shopping and transportation.

The space

Beautifully appointed and quiet downstairs room with queen bed, walk-in closet, in suite bath, television and lovely garden views. Female or couples only, thanks. Regardless of the calendar which Airbnb is having difficulty with, the price is 131/night Thanks

Guests may do light cooking, but no turkey dinners! Fixing breakfast or lunch is fine and there is a microwave.
The upstairs and artist studio is my private space.

I have a full and somewhat demanding schedule, I am happy to enjoy my guest' company when our paths cross, but do expect that I will be away or needing to be alone in my studio often.

The neighborhood is quiet and friendly and close to shopping and many main transportation hubs.

Train, bus and access to freeways are within 10 minute drives, or 15-20 minute walks.

I love my dogs and you will too, but please respect my rules for (URL HIDDEN) extra food unless approved by me.

Leslie is a gracious, charming, and caring host, her home a showcase well suited to an issue of Better Homes & Gardens. It's situated in a quiet neighborhood of Old Palo Alto just off campus and easily within walking distance to campus and a CalTrain stop. (I stayed while hosting at conference at Stanford, so location was crucial for me.) A beautifully designed interior and gorgeous gardens outside made Leslie's place a perfectly calm counterpart to the stress of the conference. As hosts, Leslie, Fergus, and Fiona (her adorable and very friendly dogs) were among the best with whom I've had the pleasure of staying. Conversations were always a delight, and the suite (bedroom, bathroom, dressing room, walk-in closet) was utterly quiet, peaceful, and perfectly appointed. Leslie, one senses, does nothing without a designer's eye and an artistic vision. Staying at her place was, in short, a highlight of my trip to bay area.

Exactly as is described. Feels like you're living at your grandparents' home for the summer - warm and comfortable. Cute dogs too!

I had the most wonderful stay at Leslie's home. It was a home away from home for the five nights I stayed. My conversations with Leslie were always a wonderful delight, the garden was a beautiful oasis and Fiona & Fergus (her sweet dogs) were delightful friends. The house was really conveniently located to great restaurants, an easy walk from Stanford and the train station. Thank you Leslie for making my trip to Palo Alto that much more memorable!

It was my wife's and my first try with Airbnb and we did nothing wrong with Leslie. We felt us very welcomed and she was helping us whenever she could. We rate 5 out of 5 Stars for this great host. Also we loved her dogs which even welcomed us more as any dogs we have ever met. If you want to stay in Palo Alto, stay here!

I'm a single grandmother with a couple of adorable Tibetan Terriers ( who are hypoallergenic). I love my home and garden and I think you will too. I try my hand in the arts, botanical illustration, love to needlepoint and travel. I belong to our local garden club and woman's club, enjoy you will notice by the size of my kitchen. I'll provide a warm welcome, tea or coffee and a chat as well as a comfy room.
