This home is hidden away in nature, yet centered in the urban bustle of Silicon Valley. Enjoy a large master bedroom suite with a California King bed and newly remodeled bathroom. The living room includes an old stone fireplace and a piano for your enjoyment. The family room with its second fireplace and big-screen TV, opens into another bedroom wing with three bedrooms and 2 baths, each with a Queen bed. The fully private backyard with pool, stately Oak trees, and large lawn, has entranced guests at three wedding dinners.
This is our family home. As our six children have married and begun families of their own, we find ourselves traveling to see grandchildren in various corners of the world. To support this travel, we rent our home during the Christmas holidays and early summer, mid-May to mid-July.
Owner purchased this house in 1998
Our street seems like it lies in a rural setting and yet we are moments from the renowned Stanford Shopping Center, restaurants, and all that Silicon Valley offers. We like the privacy and the convenience.
Gardening is a favorite past-time and we include hired gardeners in the rental price.
The SF peninsula is noted for some of the best weather in the world, with mild temperatures year-round. The pool is solar-heated and we swam in 85F water by the first week of May '13. Centered close enough to SF and yet within reach of Monterrey, our guest book includes all sorts of day sightseeing trips.
We loved the stay in your house! It is a great house, perfect location, and lovely garden and pool.
Our family of 11 stayed at the home in Menlo Park. It was an enjoyable stay with no problems.
If you like a large house, tucked away in the hills, with complete privacy you should consider this place. There is a large pool, amazing gardens, and overall very roomy but cozy place with everything you need.
I would stay here again.
Our family of five had a terrific two week stay. The house is comfortable and inviting, with more than enough space everyone to spread out of hang out together.
We loved the location, deep into a quite, tree-lined street, but close to everything.
Our favorite part of our stay was the beautiful outdoor space with a great pool, which our kids loved, and incredible landscaping and stunning trees (the Redwoods are amazing!).
And the Gray's were terrific to interact with; they were organized and made our stay very relaxing.
We stayed here for a week and loved every minute of it. Carol and Don were tremendously gracious and gave us all the details one would need to get the most out of the home. Simply stated, this home and location were perfect. Our family felt at ease, loved the pool in the hot summer weather, and appreciated being centrally located to the many activities available to us in the Bay Area. And this house was so spacious, enabling the family to really spread out and have individual space when we needed it.
We would return and stay again and again. Our sincerest thanks to Carol and Don!
This home is central to the beautiful nature and incredible cultural and recreational activities of the mid-peninsula area south of San Francisco. Daily jaunts can include sightseeing in San Francisco; finding starfish at the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, Half Moon Bay; music concerts at Stanford University's world class Bing Auditorium or Shoreline Amphitheater; or a round of golf at one of the many beautiful courses. Take day drips with a 2-hour drive to the Monterrey Bay Aquarium, 17-mile drive at Pebble Beach and the art colony of Carmel. In the heart of Silicon Valley, you can visit the San Jose Tech Museum. For children, there is the SF zoo and new Exploratorium; San Jose's Happy Hollow and the fabulous Children's Discovery Museum. Short drives to wine-tasting or white sandy beaches.
