Perfect Property for our Reunion Visit
We were one of 3 couples renting this charming and well equipped house for a 4 day 50th college reunion stay. The house is beautifully furnished, with areas to gather for visiting and cozy spots to have quiet time with a book. We used 3 bedrooms and the 3 bathrooms, giving each couple privacy and a good night’s sleep. The backyard was inviting for end of day catch up. The kitchen was so well equipped, we only needed to provide the food. Property manager Jen made our planning and check in process a breeze. The quiet neighborhood was perfect for walks, as well as easy walking distance to the campus. We wished we could have stayed longer and highly recommend this beautiful home for anyone needing a “home away” while in Palo Alto.

5/5 Excellent

Great property in Palo Alto
We had a wonderful week at 2310 Bowdoin over Labor Day. The property is in a great location for any activities at Stanford, and also close to downtown. Wonderful walking area, playgrounds nearby (our grandson was with us), and very quiet neighborhood. Just a lovely home, well equipped and comfortable in every respect, and easy to have both gathering spaces for family and friends as well as privacy. Hope we can visit again - and would recommend this property for anyone visiting Palo Alto area.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful house in a beautiful neighbor
The house is an excellent alternative, really close to Stanford university (5 minutes bike) . Full of books, and a piano. Fully recomendable. The house is equipped with high quality furniture and appliances that make your family stay very comfortable.
