Menlo Park House Rental Photos and Description

4 BR, 2.5 BA 2900 sf private home near Stanford

This contemporary home is ideally located in Menlo Park on the peninsula and highly suited for a family or couple planning to vacation or work in the Palo Alto/Stanford area. A clean and spacious 2900 sq ft home on 1/3 acre – it features a fully-equipped, modern kitchen & great room combo. Relax in the newly remodeled master bath with his/her dual shower, heated floors and Jacuzzi tub. The consistently nice weather lets guests enjoy a morning cup of coffee while listening to the birds in the trees and/or enjoy a backyard BBQ any night. The back deck with long comfy couches is a new feature, and our current favorite! Children will love the outdoor play area that features an enclosed trampoline, play house and a play structure with tree house, swings and slide. If work you must, then do it in the equipped home office with a view to the great outdoors. The home is an easy 5-10 minutes' walk to 3 parks with playgrounds, an 8 min walk to the local shopping center and restaurants, and a 5 min drive (10 min bike ride) to the Stanford campus. Take a day trip to San Francisco to ride the trolley cars and indulge in famous Ghirardelli chocolate or visit the award winning wine country of Napa Valley just 90 minutes away. Nature enthusiasts and athletic types will enjoy the many hikes and bike trails within 15 minutes' drive, including the Stanford Dish, Windy Hill, Arastradero Preserve and the redwood forest Wunderlich Park.

About Jan

We're a family of 4, including 2 kids ages 10 and 11. Both husband and wife attended Stanford, and somehow ended up back here -- just a stone's throw away. We love our home -- it's a great place for playing, entertaining and relaxing. It's on a private cul de sac with lots of greenery and nature. Our area is fantastic -- perfect for walking, hiking, biking and swimming and sports, it feels like a country vacation -- and yet it's just a short drive to San Francisco. We hope you'll love staying here as much as we do!

Jan purchased this house in 2004

Wonderful ranch home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this very comfortable ranch home while visiting family near by. We needed an accessible home for both my in-laws and my daughter.

It had a large open kitchen area and family room. The kitchen was modern and well-equipped.

There were 3 nice size bedrooms with comfortable beds and 2 updated full bathrooms.

There is a shopping center with a supermarket within walking distance.

We would definitely stay here again.

A great place in Menlo Park

  • 5 of 5
We and our 2 daughters stayed here for 4 weeks in 2011. We liked it so much we came back for 2 weeks in 2012.

The house was comfortable, spacious and relaxing, with greenery everywhere. The recently remodelled bathrooms are especially nice.

It’s in a nice neighborhood, and was convenient to everything we wanted to do in the Bay Area.

The girls loved playing in the yard. There is also a playground 1 block away.

We would definitely return!

Lovely Menlo Park House

  • 5 of 5
We rented this lovely home over the Christmas holiday -- and it worked as great alternative to multiple hotel rooms for our family of 5. The house is well equipped and large (both inside and yard) by CA standards. It has a fabulous modern kitchen connecting to a comfortable family room. With three bedrooms, this is a very good rental option for families with children.

The location is excellent for anyone who wants a base of operations near Stanford or on "the Peninsula" south of San Francisco. You will almost certainly need (or want) a car to get around, but shopping, restaurants, sights, and recreational opportunities are all nearby.

The owners were helpful and responsive. I would recommend this rental highly.

Our house is a 1 minute walk to a playground, basketball courts, and a beautiful open green field. 5 minutes of walking gets you to the Dutch Goose, a famous Stanford hangout, and other local restaurants and bars. Our neighborhood shopping center with supermarket, Starbucks, WildBerry Yogurt and other shops and restaurants is 10 minutes' walk away. Walk for 15 minutes the other direction and you are on the Stanford campus. Head out the door on walks in the hills with gorgeous views, and fantastic bike rides. Everywhere you go you'll see a wide variety of trees and greenery. We love it here, and think you will too!
