A short ride over to Palo Alto and Stanford, Ellyn's place is the perfect place to stay in this area. Cozy, quiet and clean. Ellyn was also very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.

A Fiction Writer, Artist and avid Gardener, I'm an early morning person, more than happy to have a pot of coffee or tea waiting for guests when they wake up. A (closet) musician, YOU are more than welcome to play the KORG keyboard in living room.
