Guestbook comments from the owner
Faith is a very kind and warm hearted host. The photos on the website can hardly do justice to her marvelous home. I never had the feeling of being in a rental home, Faith's attention to detail, her cleanliness and impeccable taste made me feel as if in a luxury villa. The kitchen was well stocked and I particularly enjoyed her assortment of high end vinegars. The beds were very comfy. The highlight of my stay was a candlelight dinner in her lush and beautiful patio. There is no other option for me when in the area. I highly recommend this property.

I have lived in the area with my family for many years. We choose our home because of the people, the weather, and the neighborhood charm. We have a magnificent large yard with citrus, herbs and flowers galore! I love beautiful surroundings and this, I assure you, is a beautiful home full of lovely pleasures and treasures. There are little treasures like the heart shaped vines and the mermaid fountain - it's a magical place where you will feel relaxed and pampered.

Faith Price purchased this house in 2005

We chose our home because of the location, the weather, and the neighborhood charm. The weather is ideal here. We sit in a little microclimate that resembles the Mediterranean. Did I mention the shopping? The Stanford Shopping Center is a ten minute walk and a two minute drive. Hiking? Biking? Skyline is a cyclist' s dream and we are very close to several preserves with trails. And you are only 40 minutes from Half Moon Bay, and and hour and a half from Carmel. The house is equal distance from the San Francisco and San Jose airports at 40 minutes. We are across the street a from the Stanford golf course and 10 minutes by car or bike from downtown Palo Alto.

There is a a treehouse which adults can refer to as the 'wine bar.' it is high up in a 100 year old Live Oak. The backyard patio is nestled under a large arbor with lots of comfortable seating for you and your family to enjoy. There are arches down the side of the house lined with jasmine. A cobalt blue canoe decorates the garden. The lawn is large, green and flat, perfect for Bocci, Croquet, or Soccer!

BEAUTIFUL HOME!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful home! Not only was the house warm and cozy, but the outside was just as inviting! The back yard was where we spent most of our time. Faith was a great host, she responded very quickly when we had questions. She made us feel right at home. Thank you for such a wonderful stay!

FABULOUS MENLO PARK HOME

  • 5 of 5
This summer, my family stayed at this lovely home and wished we could have stayed longer! The house is delightful not only because of ammenities like a great backyard and outdoor dining area, but also because of the friendly neighborhood. My kids were out playing and riding bikes (made available by Faith) the moment we arrived. Neighbors were waiving and smiling as we hung out on these quiet, tree-lined streets. The kitchen was easy to maneuver and while I'm no great chef, easy to really cook and we even entertained. The only downside is that there is only one bathroom to serve the guests of 3 lovely bedrooms. But we acclimated to that quite quickly.
This is a GREAT house, a perfect neighborhood. It is minutes from Stanford, downtown Menlo and the Stanford mall.
Faith was also delightful. She made sure our stay was wonderful. Don't hesitate!

STANFORD GRADUATION WEEK

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful home base for our family as we celebrated our daughter's graduation from Stanford. Faith was such a generous hostess, her home is beautifully done and yet so very comfortable! The yard is a dream, we ate nightly on the patio and spent much our down time relaxing in this garden oasis. The neighborhood is so quiet, this home was a perfect place for us to all relax after the days activities. Faith does such an amazing job at putting you at ease when you arrive and was able to answer all of our questions so completely we felt at home in a unfamiliar area. I would absolutely recommend this HOME to anyone who is visiting the area. We told Faith that if we were to come back we would ask her first. This is our highest praise!

FAMILY WEEK AT STANFORD

  • 5 of 5
We quickly became right at home in this wonderful jewel. The house was clean, decorated beautifully, and easy for our crawling 10 month old and 3 year old daughters. The backyard provided not only a calming place for eating, but a safe exploration zone for them as well. We briefly met the owner and she immediately ensured we were welcome with child-safe foods and brownie bites as well. My husband walked to Stanford daily quite easily and we often accompanied him through the neighborhood by foot and stroller. It is a quiet neighborhood with families and great for exploring. We hope to book again next year!

A WONDERFUL MONTH IN MENLO PARK

  • 5 of 5
My family (two adults and two small children) spent an entire month at Faith’s home over the summer of 2012 and had the most wonderful time. She was there to greet us upon our arrival and the house was sparkling clean and ready for moving in. The home is well kept and beautifully decorated, and we felt right at home throughout our stay. There was ample closet space, plenty of towels and linens and some goodies in the kitchen and pantry. The house has a great flat screen TV and she even subscribed to children’s channels at our request. Faith had instructions for how to use every kitchen appliance and basic maintenance of the home (garbage collection, mail, etc.) in her absence. The garden out back is like something out of a magazine with strawberry patches, blueberry bushes, lemon trees and amazing assortment of flowers.

Most importantly, Faith was a gracious host, extremely understanding and very responsive to our needs and in answering even the most mundane questions for a family new to the Menlo Park area. The neighborhood itself is quiet and close knit, yet very close to downtown Menlo Park and Palo Alto. But the house with the white picket fence stands out as something special. We have every intention of staying again at Faith’s house should we return to the Menlo Park area and recommend it to anyone considering staying there.

STANFORD GRADUATE FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
Our family was anticipating our visit to the Bay area for our daughter's graduation from Stanford for 4 years! We couldn't have chosen a better home for our stay! Every aspect of the home was absolutely perfect for us. The gardens are thriving and lush & the patio was our favorite place to congregate after a busy day on campus. The owner went above and beyond to make us feel at home! I would recommend this home to anyone visiting the Bay area. THANK YOU!
