FAMILY-FRIENDLY 3BR HOME ON QUIET VINEYARD NEAR STANFORD & PALO ALTO

Palo Alto House Rental Photos and Description

3BR, 1BA with full kitchen, laundry

This recently remodeled home is nestled among an oak grove, a waterfall garden and a vineyard in the hills above Stanford University. It's perfect for traveling families and groups, as well as startups visiting Silicon Valley or conducting off-site meetings.

The home is convenient to I-280 (5 mins away), Stanford (10 mins), Sand Hill Rd (7 mins) and both San Francisco (35 mins) and San Jose (25 mins). It's very close to Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Woodside, Mountain View and Los Altos.

This is a storied property - it once was a hunting lodge visited by Hollywood celebrities like Bing Crosby. In the 60s and 70s it became a hippie commune before becoming a private residence. This house was once a stable and was converted decades ago to a guest house, then remodeled and updated twice in the last 10 years, including a new kitchen and bath in 2013.

In addition to all the amenities inside the home, there's a full tennis court, basketball, and in warm weather a pool, hot tub and sauna are often available (please confirm availability before booking - these are sometimes unavailable). A private half-mile walking trail encircles the property and a network of public hiking trails are available just outside the fence.

The self-contained house includes a kitchen, dining area, living room and 3 bedrooms. The master bedroom features a luxurious brass & iron queen bed fitted with 400-thread count Egyptian cotton sheets. There's a DVD/VCR and TV as well as a walk-in closet, dresser and full-length mirror.

The second bedroom includes a queen bed, desk and closet. The third bedroom has a twin bed, dresser and toys and books for young children. Additional sleeping is available on the convertible loveseat in the living room (can sleep 1-2).

The bathroom features a marble floor and granite slab on the sink and the shower. There are extra towels, pillows and blankets as well.

The full kitchen includes granite counters, premium cabinets and modern appliances: range, 2 ovens, microwave, dishwasher, disposal and full refrigerator/freezer with ice-maker and filtered water. Dishes, cups, silverware, pots, pans and utensils are available. There's plenty of counter prep space. In addition to the dining table, there's a bar-top with four stools.

The living room features a 60' HD TV with DVD/VCR and surround sound. You'll have one of Comcast's top internet and cable packages (Preferred Plus XF) with ESPN, HBO, Starz and a few other premium channels. There's also a selection of books & toys that are appropriate for young children.

The home has plenty of natural light and includes its own heating, air conditioning, full-sized washer and dryer and plenty of closet space.

Just off the tennis court is an outdoor patio with table, umbrella and chairs.

You'll have your own driveway and parking accessible through an automatic entry gate.

The surrounding area is popular for walking, running, hiking, cycling (road and mountain), and horse-riding. It's quite beautiful and rustic despite being minutes from I-280, Sand Hill Rd, Stanford and Palo Alto. Shopping and dining are minutes away, either in town, Palo Alto, Menlo Park, or beyond.

Perfect getaway from Palo Alto

  • 4 of 5
Good for small families or people that need some space and prefer not to be in a hotel room. You will need a car to get here. It's a small house on the owner's estate, cozy and good if you need to relax away from the city. Three bedrooms (one with a small bed for a child). Be sure to make sure you can use the pool and/or private tennis court as they are awesome and closed during some periods.
