About Maureen Kravitz
We completely rebuilt our home in 1996, working with artisans and master carpenters to give it Old World charm with modern conveniences. The Norwegian Day Bed next to the fireplace has been featured in Sunset Magazine.

Why Maureen Kravitz chose Stanford
Our home is ideal for visitors to Stanford and Silicon Valley. It offers country elegance in the middle of Palo Alto. We completely rebuilt our home in 1996 to create a peaceful haven. Enjoy it as your home away from home when you are in Palo Alto for business or pleasure.
What makes this House unique
We love the College Terrace neighborhood, filled with old trees, gracious houses, and tree-lined streets. This is quintessential Palo Alto living. The neighborhood is very peaceful and yet close to everything.

Charming lived in home in lovely quiet street with a great atmosphere, gorgeous garden and extremely comfortable beds. Would happily have stayed more than 2 nights had we been able to. Only thing missing for us was a Nespresso machine!
Thank you Mytro, glad you enjoyed your stay.
Thank you for the suggestion.

The property manger was very nice and helpfully. Would definitely stay there again.
Lovely! Such a special home with charming nooks!
Charming, Comfortable Old-World Home
We loved this house which we stayed in during the week preceeding my daughter's wedding.
The house is quiet and the location is very pretty with a gorgeous garden. It is a beautifully appointed house with a fully equipped kitchen, excellent and varied seating areas - perfect for a range of different ages and very comfortable bedrooms. We felt so at home from our first day in the house.
Maureen the house manager is an angle, she responded to all our queries so quickly and with such kindness and generosity.
We had a wonderful week, all our visitors fell in love with the house and we were very sad to leave at the end of the week.
We would recommend this house as a terrific place to stay.
Wonderful, inviting, comfortable home!
This is a well-appointed home, lots of space, comfy furniture, and a great library of books. During our five day stay, everyone who dropped by immediately said what a warm and wonderful home this was. The ambiance and vibe that the owners have created make this a home you enjoy being at. After a long travel day, we arrived on our first night to find snacks and beverages---what a kind gesture! If I were ever going to move back to Palo Alto, this is the house I would want to live in!
Convenient to all Silicon Valley employers (Google, Facebook, Apple, HP), and to Stanford campus and Stanford Hospital.
