I have lived in the area with my family for many years. We choose our home because of the people, the weather, and the neighborhood charm. We have a magnificent large yard with citrus, herbs and flowers galore! I love beautiful surroundings and this, I assure you, is a beautiful home full of lovely pleasures and treasures. There are little treasures like the heart shaped vines and the mermaid fountain - it's a magical place where you will feel relaxed and pampered.

Faith Price purchased this house in 2005

We chose our home because of the location, the weather, and the neighborhood charm. The weather is ideal here. We sit in a little microclimate that resembles the Mediterranean. Did I mention the shopping? The Stanford Shopping Center is a ten minute walk and a two minute drive. Hiking? Biking? Skyline is a cyclist' s dream and we are very close to several preserves with trails. And you are only 40 minutes from Half Moon Bay, and and hour and a half from Carmel. The house is equal distance from the San Francisco and San Jose airports at 40 minutes. We are across the street a from the Stanford golf course and 10 minutes by car or bike from downtown Palo Alto.

There is a a treehouse which adults can refer to as the 'wine bar.' it is high up in a 100 year old Live Oak. The backyard patio is nestled under a large arbor with lots of comfortable seating for you and your family to enjoy. There are arches down the side of the house lined with jasmine. A cobalt blue canoe decorates the garden. The lawn is large, green and flat, perfect for Bocci, Croquet, or Soccer!

Faith's adorable cottage was our home base during our daughter's Stanford graduation weekend. I cannot imagine a more comfortable base for this special weekend in the life of my family. The home is very convenient to the Stanford campus as well as to the quaint shops and restaurants in Menlo Park. A nice grocery store and drugstore are just minutes away, so it was very easy to stock up on lunch items and snacks. A most delightful surprise was the large garden in the back which is complimented by a patio stocked with ample seating areas. With roses and hydrangeas in full bloom, it proved to be the perfect stage for toasting our daughter and her friends on their commencement!

Faith is a very kind and warm hearted host. The photos on the website can hardly do justice to her marvelous home. I never had the feeling of being in a rental home, Faith's attention to detail, her cleanliness and impeccable taste made me feel as if in a luxury villa. The kitchen was well stocked and I particularly enjoyed her assortment of high end vinegars. The beds were very comfy. The highlight of my stay was a candlelight dinner in her lush and beautiful patio. There is no other option for me when in the area. I highly recommend this property.

Faith was a wonderful host. She accommodated our every need and was very welcoming when we arrived. We were completely taken aback by her beautiful patio and backyard. The home itself was stunning and we could not have been more excited about staying in such a wonderful property. We highly recommend this property and hope to stay here again in the future!

One of my coworkers and I had meetings on Sand Hill Road, and Faith's house was incredibly convenient for those meetings. We woke up late but still made it to our meetings on time, we got some work done in her beautiful backyard / patio, ordered dinner from one of the excellent local restaurants and were generally quite happy and productive on this business trip. Nice stay, would stay here again.
