A Gracious Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 2 adults and 2 children had a wonderful stay in this gracious, beautifully furnished, immaculate and comfortable apartment/home. Every detail was thought of and the location was perfect, being within walking distance to shops, restaurants and of course great park across the road. Thanks Roger and family for your hospitality.

We had a wonderful trip to Palo Alto staying at this rental. The location is easily walkable to all restaurants, Stanford Campus, and basically everything we wanted to do in town. Amenities were very comfortable. Will absolutely stay here again when we are back in town.

We loved having two King-bedded suites, each with its own private bath. Beautifully furnished, ample kitchen supplies. We had a wonderful time here with another couple. Would recommend!

Thanksgiving 2015

  • 5 of 5

The unit was very clean and comfortable for both sleeping and relaxing at breakfast in the living/dining area. The unit is also very quiet so there were no issues getting a good night's sleep. Other than eating breakfast, we were out and about for the rest of our stay. It was very spacious for the 4 adults--two couples-- and the unit is located in a quiet neighborhood very near "downtown" Palo Alto. A Whole Foods and Peet's coffee are just 2-3 short blocks from the apartment.

Roger went over all the details with us and met us at the appointed time for check in. My wife and I thought everything went smoothly. We also had the use of 2 underground parking spots--although we only needed one.

All 4 of us gave the unit 2 thumbs up.

We would definately look to rent this unit again the next time we head back to Palo Alto.
