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!

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!
