Welcome to your home away from home!

Close to Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Stanford University, and Redwood City, as well as easy access to both 280 and 101, Caltrain. Approx. 45 minutes' drive to San Francisco and 30 min drive to San Jose.

The space
Private entry with free off street parking in a dedicated parking spot. Enter the courtyard through the wooden gate and the cottage is just a few steps away.

Natural light floods the cottage during the day and blinds afford excellent privacy. Lovely views of the large garden on two sides. Equipped with a very comfy full (double) bed, full kitchen with stove/oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, disposal and cooking implements. It's a good set up if you'd like to cook your meals. The cottage is well heated, has air conditioning, plenty of storage, coffee & tea makers, and a full size ironing board & iron. There is a television with a Roku box which accesses Netflix and Amazon Prime for movies and television shows. We have an antenna for local stations. The bathroom has a shower and separate heating.
Our cottage is perfect for couples, solo, and business travelers. We are open to extended stays, please request if over 30 days. Our fully stocked kitchen makes it easy to cook meals and the fridge and the freezer are large enough to store food.

Where you’ll be

Atherton, California, United States

We live in a lovely flat residential area filled with mature oak trees. Within an hour (by car), you can be at the beach in Santa Cruz, Half Moon Bay, or in San Francisco. Caltrain is just a couple of miles down the road. Atherton is a perfect location to explore the Bay Area and Northern California -- halfway between San Francisco and San Jose, close to Silicon Valley, and just a few hours away from Lake Tahoe and Monterey and Carmel. Or you can just take it easy and cycle around the neighborhood!

I'm a California girl and I like to work in the garden, sew, and swing dance. My husband and I have stayed in several airbnbs as we have traveled, both domestically and internationally and really enjoy meeting people. We are looking forward to welcoming travelers to our beautiful state!

During your stay

We live a few steps away in the house, and are happy to answer questions as well as to interact with our guests. If you would rather keep to yourself, that is fine too. We can easily be reached by text or just ring the back doorbell!
I have put samples of bathroom items in the closet in the bathroom, also a hairdryer, in case you forgot something.
