Room for rent is a spacious private room in a charming renovated 1928, two bedroom storybook, cottage-like home with large open yard and huge redwood tree with flowers and fruit trees.
This private room, (previously the living room), has four doors: Front Door, Dining Room Door, Hallway Door to bathroom and kitchen; and a Closet Door.
The private entry is the front door. It is used only by guest. Front Door private entrance is directly into guest room.
Host enters the house only through the back door on other side of the house, which is the closest access to the back patio and garage. Host parks in the driveway in front of the garage.
Dining room is off guest room. There is a portable 4" thick arched door to Dining Room which is easily opened or closed by guest as desired.
Guest Room is fully furnished with a daybed, couch, desk, dresser, assorted lamps, live plants and a low pile cotton rug.
The day bed is a firm single mattress daybed, most suited for one person. For two people there is a queen size pullout couch bed – which is best for only temporary short term visits since it fills the room when it is set up as a bed.
There are six windows in the room so there is a lot of morning and afternoon sunlight in the room.
The historic fireplace is not functional due to degradation of chimney, so a bookshelf is placed in front of the fireplace.
WIFI internet is available through out the house.
There is only one bathroom; it is shared. It has two sinks, a shower and tub.
Kitchen is basic with a small refrigerator, modern gas stove, and no dishwasher or microwave. Guest has full use of kitchen and all dishes and appliances. Guest is expected to wash own dishes using provided gloves, soap and hot water.
Shared laundry area includes front loading energy saving washer & dryer that requires particular detergent that is provided.
Cute Dining Room has lots of windows, plants and some original artwork.
Parking is free, and easy in this quiet residential neighborhood, in front and all around the house.
Neighborhood is safe, neighbors are kind and friendly. Lots of people walk or jog here. Three is a park and trail by the creek less than ten minute walk away, where you can walk, enjoy nature, or visit two famous donkeys or other assorted farm animals.
A few blocks away you will find Driftwood Market, a fantastic deli that is open Mon-Sat; a Mexican restaurant, and other amenities such as a small store / florist, a gas station, an all night doughnut shop, Happy Doughnuts, and a Starbuck's Coffee, as well as gas stations. The main street is where you can catch bus service going north and south. California Avenue Cal Train Station about a mile away, is about a twenty minute walk north east.
In ten minutes you can get to Stanford University, "Stanford Dish" hiking trails, or east to the baylands which are all lovely paths to walk.
Prepared food options are plentiful in the local area. Great Restaurants close by, on California Ave: Cafe Brioche, The Counter for great burgers, Joanies, famous for brunch; La Bodeguita Del Medio for Mojitos. As well as a health food store, Country Sun, and a market, Mollie Stone's.

Host is an Artist and Certified Massage Therapist, who repairs builds and fixes things around the house and for others off site or in the back patio. Her work schedule varies between long or short hours of work sometimes in home office, or patio, and other times offsite on location at a clients residence or office.
This house is very sweet and homey, it is a refurbished storybook-like home the size of a roomy cottage with a long bathroom.
The house is generally quiet. Gentle use of doors is greatly appreciated. Host is generally quiet, though, does at times play the radio to listen to NPR or Prairie Home Companion, or books on tape while doing the dishes or cleaning typically when no one is home.
There are times when I am up for listening to some enjoyable music, mine or others at an increased volume. However, I would appreciate a mutual agreement about acceptable volumes and want to know any time something is too loud or undesired. Talk to me, make requests; help me meet your comfort needs.
A few times a week I see clients in my office and will post on the door that I am in session. Though guest still have full use of the house and I am not opposed to their presence, while I see clients, or need to sleep, is not a good time for "party volume" music or other unnecessary loud noise.
There is no TV here. Playing music, or watching movies on a computer at a reasonable medium to low volume level, (or with headsets) is fine.
However Xbox use in this house is not acceptable due to the invasively loud violent sounds of video gaming and those playing it. Loud or aggressive noise is not conducive to desired peace and serenity here.
There is currently a one speed cruiser bike for guests use around town.
I do on occasion cook food to share. If you want prepared meals, that can often be arranged. Let me know. If I offer food to you I have fixed there is no cost. If you request prepared lunches or dinners there is an extra fee.
Therapeutic Massage sessions available by appointment.

Erin is an amazing landlady! It has been an amazing time for me. She is helpful and kind. She always offers you the best solution to your questions! She is an incredible good cook! I love the organic pumpkin pie!!! It is a perfect solution for a long and also short term staying. It is next to downtown Palo Alto and it is 15 minutes from Stanford by bike.
This was my first airbnb experience and it was certainly a pleasant one. Erin was an excellent host and the room was very nice and comfortable. I really enjoyed the sight of Erin's beautiful paintings and was always treated to fresh fruit and milk. Highly recommended!
The neighborhood was comfortable and quiet, the home was comfy and clean with lots of space in the room and I slept great on the bed. Erin was a gracious host that went to extra lengths to insure I was comfortable. I’m sure I’ll be back.
Erin was a very nice host and made me feel at home. The room was very clean, well-kept, and comfortable and in a great neighborhood. She lended me her bike and showed me the beach. I enyoyed my stay very much and would definitely stay there again!
Staying with Erin was great. Her home is quite beautiful, and the room I stayed in was very comfortable. Parking was easy as well. Erin is a very kind person, and her home was a calm place to stay. Erin is very nice company, and staying with her worked out perfectly for me.
Erin is an adorable, sweet and attentive person. She would always prepare huge breakfast for me and buy a lot more of extra food! She landed her bike to me and I found this was so nice of her.
The house is very clean, well-kept and in a really nice area.
I would absolutely recommend Erin's place! Especially if you are going to work at Stanford it is very handy (12min by bycicle)

I liked staying with Erin. She patiently waited for me when my flight got delayed. The room is located in a nice and quiet residential area of Palo alto and parking was easy. Overall, I enjoyed my stay
This was a fantastic landing spot for my move to the Bay Area. Erin was a wonderful, thoughtful host and ensured that I had everything that I needed. The room is large, with great closet space and is very private. Parking was simple. It was a real pleasure to spend time with Erin. But she did afford me my space and she was actually out most evenings.
I took Erin up on her offer to provide food, and most days I came home to a delicious, hot meal waiting for me. Her cooking is fantastic and her home is warm, clean and beautiful.
