My career was in education. I was headmaster of two schools for 30 years. When I retired, I moved to Palo Alto to be close to my two daughters and their families.

The picture is of me and my daughter Stephanie, who is General Manager of the Cardinal Hotel in downtown Palo Alto. She would be the main contact person for renters staying in my home.

John 'Scott' McLeod purchased this house in 2009

Proximity to Stanford, weather, college town, major shopping center, and quiet and secure property all make this a remarkable and appealing location.

Modern design and excellent condition of home, secure and quiet location, outside deck and attractive lawn, and easy access to 101 are among the many benefits of staying in my home.

AN EXTENDED STAY BY THE BAY

  • 5 of 5
We took this rental on doctor's orders. After back surgery at Stanford, the doctor forbade travel for six weeks. We live out of state. This house met our needs perfectly.

It has a welcoming, family feel to it. It is comfortable and well kept up. The kitchen is well-equipped. The satellite TV package carries more channels than one could wish for. The house has WIFI, which enabled us to conduct business from long-distance. The back yard is private and meticulously cared for. It is a pleasant place to spend time or to view from inside the house through glass doors. A morning newspaper was even part of the deal.

The location is within minutes of shopping in Palo Alto and Menlo Park. San Francisco is a short distance away.

Because two to three daily walks were the prescribed rehab regimen we spent many hours on the paths of the Bayshore preserves, from Menlo Park to Palo Alto to Mountain View. At high tide, on clear days with sunshine, and when the birds are out--thousands of them--the preserves are gorgeous. They are a birdwatcher's dream and, in Mountain View on weekends, birders flock by the dozens. Other days we traveled to the hilly country on the west and walked trails beneath wild California oaks.

The owner explained all we needed to know to make the best use of the property and made certain we could contact him if need be. He went out of his way to ensure that our needs were met.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this rental, especially when compared against a long-term hotel stay. We couldn't have found a better place for our needs.

COMFORTABLE AND RELAXING HOME

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were very fortunate to stay at Scott's comfortable house in Menlo Park for eight days. It was perfect as a place to cook (gas range or BBQ outdoors on charcoal grill) and spend time with our six month old grandson and our daughter and son-in-law who live nearby as well as a retreat to kick back and relax. Either by walking or driving, there are so many great places and restaurants to choose from. Scott is a very considerate and gracious host, very personable and welcoming. All the amenities of a true home are available. We would definitely like to return when we are back in the area.
