This apartment was well-appointed, well-cared for, and surprisingly, convenient. Menlo Anton is a new apartment complex located between the 101 expressway and the lower San Francisco Bay. On the map it looks like getting there and back could be daunting. In fact, you are one minute from an intersection with your choice of routes into Menlo Park/Palo Alto, the 101 freeway entrance, or the Dumbarton Bridge to the East Bay. The San Jose airport is less than 20 minutes away.
The apartment had a modern, pleasant layout and all of the amenities you would expect. The kitchen was extensive, the bed was comfortable, and there was ample storage. And four days in "my own" apartment cost the same as a day and a half at the Palo Alto Sheraton on my last trip to the area.
The only hiccup was getting into the building the first day we arrived. The building entry code did not work (we weren't the only ones who had this problem). The property management was apologetic and assured me that the problem would be addressed for future guests.
We plan to use this place again for future travel to the Bay area.
My extended family had a wonderful stay in Palo Alto and this spacious home was just as described and pictured. There was enough room for seven adults to have together time or be in different parts of the home for privacy and quiet time. The fully stocked kitchen was a bonus and big enough for all to cook and gather. The central location to the Peninsula and easy access to Hwy 101 was super convenient. Tzippi was easy to work with, responsive and very accommodating. A nice place in a perfect location.
