Guest suite in Palo Alto
Studio 875, beautiful design, private & serene
Conveniently nestled in the quiet neighborhood of Barron Park in Palo Alto, in Silicon Valley. Perfect for a single traveler for work, visit family/friends, or proximity to Stanford. A 12 min bike ride to Stanford campus, and 5 min drive to California Avenue shops & restaurants. Take a short stroll to Bol Park & see the famous Barron Park donkeys. Please note, this unit is unable to host assistance animals due to resident’s dog phobia and a sensitive elderly cat. Thank you for understanding.
