About Robin

Hi there. I'm Robin. I bought this townhouse in 2007. I just moved 1 town north to a new home and look forward to being your local host. I'm happy to share ideas about the area with you directly and through my guest manual. I've lived in the bay area since college at UC Davis. Prior to that I lived up and down the California coast and on the east coast in Northern Virginia and Newport, Rhode Island. For work, I'm an actuary for a big 4 accounting firm. For fun, I love to bike to the coast and back, trail run, enjoy lots of local music (great outdoor concerts in this area in the summer), host dinner parties, and go out to dinner to all the great restaurants in the area. I've enjoyed alot of fun sports and music events on Stanford campus, events in SF and SJ.

Robin purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Robin chose The Willows

Unlike many homes in the Menlo Park/Palo Alto area which were built in the 40s and 50s, this small townhouse complex of 25 units was built in 1996. It has an amazing floor plan with high ceilings, lots of natural light from the windows and stairway skylight, and lots of closet space. I love the backyard patio/2nd dining room. I also love the center island in the kitchen for visiting with guests or cooking meals with friends. The neighbors are quite close and supportive. We enjoy an annual block party. Most of the units are owner occupied.

What makes this townhome unique

Crazy great access to most places you'd want to go in the bay area. Only a mile to downtown Palo Alto and Facebook. I rode my bike from the house to the coast and back frequently (50 mile ride).

Owner's Response: I enjoyed hosting ibrahim and his family. It was fun learning of their world travels, the Stanford executive education course Ibrahim was in town for, and the fun adventures his family enjoyed while in town (hot air ballooning in Napa, boat ride in San Francisco, shopping at the Stanford mall). I would recommend Ibrahim and his family to other hosts. They left my place clean and cared for.
