Stay in our 2BR cedar and glass guest house on a three acre property just minutes from Palo Alto, Stanford University and Sand Hill Road.
Access to San Francisco, Silicon Valley and the entire bay area for work or play. You can also get away from it all on the hiking trails accessible from the property, or nearby Windy Hill or Arastradero Preserve.

The space
Forty-One Oaks guest house is in a beautiful, serene, treed setting just minutes from I-280 and access to Silicon Valley, San Francisco, and the rest of the Bay Area. The three acre property is called 'Forty-One Oaks' because of the glorious woodland setting, with 41 significant oak trees.
See families of deer and other wildlife right out your window. Catch a look of the famous Stanford 'dish' radio-telescope from your living room window.

The guest house is approximately 750 square feet cantilevered over the oak-studded hillside. Enjoy the comfortable, well appointed living area and full, modern kitchen with marble counters and stainless appliances.
There is a lovely deck with BBQ, table and chairs for outdoor dining or just enjoying the view.

There are 2 bedrooms, one with a queen-size bed, closet and large dresser. The second bedroom has a trundle bed (2 single beds that can be combined to create a King) and a desk so it can be used as an office.

The house was constructed in 2014 to the highest quality and safety standards. Ceilings are 9 feet high, lights are LED, and windows and views abound. Everything is on one level, with just a small step up from the parking area, friendly for those with mobility challenges.

Plenty of parking, solid wi-fi, full kitchen stocked with cookware, plates & utensils.

Guest access
Wifi (50 mbs, fast!) and television with DirecTV satellite service.

The Kitchen is stocked with plates, cookware and utensils and a refrigerator, dishwasher and a gas stove. There are a host of kitchen tools and small appliances and many of the food staples to prepare meals or snacks.
You also have access to a private tennis court with racquets, balls and ball machine at the ready (check with us on available times)

Other things to note
Room for 3 or more cars as needed.
