The space

Fully furnished bedroom with king sized bed and spacious closets. Roomy bathroom with shower and full vanity.

Sid's home is in a wonderful location, a beautiful residential neighbourhood situated perfectly between Stanford, Downtown Palo Alto, and Old Palo Alto. We were able to walk everywhere we needed to go, whether to the grocery store or great dining options at the nearby outdoor mall, to our meetings on Campus, or into downtown Palo Alto for lunch, dinner, and exploration. There are shortcuts and walking paths everywhere that are revealed if you route your walks using a maps app or online map. Having a kitchen and fridge was great to make breakfast and dinners on nights when we just wanted to stay in. Water pressure was great, water was hot, plenty of towels, and extra blankets if needed. Windows all easily open, which is great for getting fresh air. The property is lovely with flowers and planets everywhere, oranges growing on the tree out of the window. Sid is an excellent, kind, and friendly host!

Sid's place was great! I came in for a conference and really enjoyed my stay there. It was clean and an easy walk to Stanford. Sid also had snacks, coffee and tea which came in handy because I came in late and was so busy throughout my stay. He was great to chat to. I will likely be back!

I booked Sid's private apartment for my parents, who were visiting us for a week. Sid was a charm to work with and very friendly, and my parents' experience at the apartment was very positive. The unit is well located, close to Stanford and to various amenities, and the space is very functional and comfortable, as well as impeccably clean. I will definitely book the unit again if we have other out-of-town guests.

Sid was a very gracious host making himself readily available for anything and everything. The location is close to everything and the neighborhood is quiet. There is also a nice park right down the street which is very spacious. This is a good spot with great value.
