This is a spacious, bright, charming room with garden view, French doors, deck, very comfortable double/full-size bed, vanity, desk, plenty of closet and shelf space, in a beautiful, quiet home surrounded by plants and trees in Menlo Park, minutes from the 101 and 15min drive from Stanford.

The space

An updated 1948 house with garden views, trees, lots of light, character and charm in a quiet neighborhoody neighborhood of Menlo Park. Located at the very center of Silicon Valley, minutes (by car) from 101, the social network company, Stanford, Palo Alto, Sand Hill Road, 15min from San Francisco airport and 25-30 minutes from San Francisco and San Jose. 10min drive or 20min bike from the social network company (3 miles). 15min drive or 30min bike from Stanford campus (5 miles).

Guest access

Guests have access to the common areas of the house: kitchen, family room, dining/living room, patio, front and backyard, guest bathroom and second bathroom if the guest bathroom is occupied. Access to laundry for stays of a week or more - it's in my bedroom so need to coordinate with me.

Interaction with guests

I live in the home with my daughter and we enjoy interacting with guests when we're around - while also quite busy with work and school, and we also respect our guests' privacy. I share 3 rooms in my house on Airbnb so there are opportunities to interact with other guests if desired.

Other things to note

There is good wifi throughout the property.

- Please help keep everything as clean as you find it.
- No shoes in the house and cottage. I have fluffy socks and slippers you can borrow.
- Please minimize electronic noise. Please be mindful of the other guests staying at the house.
- Please be mindful of water and electricity/gas usage, especially water as we've been facing a drought in California. Please turn lights off when you leave your room.
- I provide a shelf in the fridge and in a cabinet to store your own food. Light use of the kitchen is allowed (kettle, microwave, stove on occasion, dishes).
- The ambience is generally studious and quiet, although we also at times enjoy socializing in the kitchen and family room and sometimes around a fire in the patio. The neighborhood is quiet except for the very occasional Saturday night house party. I have earplugs on the kitchen counter if needed (they rarely are).
- You can use the washer/dryer if you stay for a week or more. Please coordinate with me as it is in my room.
- Please let me know if there's anything I can do to make your stay at my house more enjoyable! My hope is that my home feels like your home away from home.

Annelene is a wonderful host and has a wonderful house. There are 3 rooms for let, and all share a bathroom. All areas very clean, and it was nice to have some use of the kitchen. My room had a private entrance and a small outdoor space directly outside. Area very quiet and parking is no problem. I would definitely stay there again.

I'm writing this review from the perspective of kindness and understanding. I was called home just as I was driving to Annelene's home, so I had to change my plans for the evening. I regretted the change but Annelene was very understanding. I would not hesitate to stay with her in the future.

Annelene's place is lovely! My room (the yellow room) had a super comfortable bed and lots of plugs for recharging the phone and laptop. I was only there one night, but it was absolutely perfect for my needs.

What a wonderful spot! Perfect location for visiting Stanford University parents! Annelene was a gracious hostess, the beds were comfortable and the house was clean and quiet. Nothing more we could have asked for. Looking forward to a return trip!

Annelene was great! She was very friendly but also gave me space, and the room and bathroom were great as well. Just as I expected.
