Perfectly located spacious designer home in the heart of Palo Alto. We are 2-5 blocks from major investors, Stanford, Cal Train, Whole Foods, restaurants, and downtown University Ave. Enjoy space to relax/eat/work inside and outdoors in our garden! Rest well on a full size bed with a private bath!

The space
The cottage is private, and shares a backyard with a main airbnb house. Feel free to use and enjoy our outdoor open spaces. Cottage guests are expected to use the cottage kitchen and stick to cottage facilities. If you need to do laundry in the main house, let me know and we can arrange.

The main house is a larger airbnb with 3 other airbnb rooms , along with my own. Some guests choose to socialize and strike friendships with others, while others prefer to enjoy a quiet cup of coffee. We've had a range of guests ranging from professors, grad students, doctors/residents, entrepreneurs, lawyers, VCs, travelers, and recently admitted students to Stanford.
