Residential area
Nice residential neighborhood with mostly large, expensive homes. Still a doable walk downtown and being close to Embarcadero is convenient if you commute outside of Palo Alto.
unknown user
Great area, but pricey
Great location (walking distance to bars, restaurants, cafes, and short bike ride to Stanford). Unfortunately it's really pricey - you can get more value in menlo park or Cal Ave area.

Great Location
Biking distance to Stanford. Walking distance to Menlo Park. Great location if you can afford a place.

Great location for Stanford/PA
Bikeable to Stanford and walkable to downtown Palo Alto. Downtown Menlo is a sleepier neighborhood but they have a TJ's, a nice farmer's market, and a couple of nice restaurants. Lots of grad students and young families here!

This is definitely the place to live as a Stanford student
Bars, restaurants and more. You don't want to go live in the 'burbs - be here!

Pretty, quiet neighborhood
Very convenient to Stanford campus, the 101, and shopping in Town & Country, California Ave, and Middlefield. Very pretty, tree-lined, quiet suburban streets. It's nice for young families.

Stanford, BC
Nice place to live near Stanford
Lived here for two years while going to graduate school at Stanford. Easy bike ride to campus on the bike path. Very close to downtown Menlo Park retail/restaurants. Quieter than downtown Palo Alto. Would have preferred living walking distance to downtown Palo Alto, but better value in here. This is a nice neighborhood in Menlo Park, but not the nicest neighborhood.

Super convenient, beautiful area
This location is incredibly convenient to Stanford (15 minute walk to the edge of campus) as well as University Ave, but also only a 10 minute drive to 101 or 280. Surrounded by beautiful homes; minimal street traffic and easy parking.
unknown user
Quiet, central and safe neighborhood, cute park nearby
It's a great neighborhood, feels super safe at all day times and really close to University Ave. Johnson Park has volleyball games on the weekends. Unlike other areas in Palo Alto, there's street cleaning so careful not to get a ticket!

Stanford, UPenn, JPMorgan Chase
Quiet, upscale
Beautiful and quiet tree-lined street with some amazing homes. Very close to 101, yet feels miles away.
unknown user
Reasonable price, great location
Very conveniently located to Stanford, DT Menlo Park, DT PA, and the caltrain. Also, more reasonably priced than DT PA. The house is a downgrade in quality from where we're most recently lived, but the backyard is a nice addition.

Love Menlo Park
I love our new apartment! Its spacious, dog-friendly, has a dishwasher, and a small storage unit. There are a couple of reasons why its wonderful. First, because there is a dog-friendly park nearby with a great playground for kids and families. There are also tennis and softball fields for the public to enjoy at their leisure. Another thing I love is that is within walking distance of the Safeway, Peets Coffee and other smaller stores. This makes last minute grocery shopping a breeze. I would highly recommend this area for singles, newly married couples and young families.

Stanford GSB Passdown House "BlackLight"
Huge house, kind of weird in a cool kind of way

Georgia Tech, Bain & Company, Harvard
Fine area - just pricey
I lived in the 725 Roble apartment buildings. They were *fine* -- management was easy to work with, property was exactly what we needed and nothing more. But the prices in Menlo have just gone through the roof lately. The area is itself is convenient, though. My partner biked to Stanford (~15 minute bike), and I either drove to work or walked to the Menlo Park Caltrain (~10 minute walk, and it gets *most* but not all trains). The Menlo Park downtown area is more cute than functional. Most things close about 9 pm, and there isn't a good bar location. Though the Safeway is close, nice, and open 24 hours.

Options are limited but hidden gems are possible
Love the PA farmers market right across the street every Saturday morning. Parking was an issue, with only 2-hour street parking available on Forest. If you find a nice place, expect to pay a premium for it!
review user
Great Location but pricey
This location is close to all of downtown Palo Alto and Stanford which made it a very convenient and pleasant place to live...especially on summer nights, however you pay SF prices with not a ton of amenities for the location alone. Start searching early and expect to pay a premium.

Stanford, Northwestern
1334 Middlefield Rd
very short bike ride to University shops and stores and to Stanford campus. Very nice and quiet area that is well kept up. the only issues are that traffic on middlefield is relentless which makes parking and leaving annoying.
unknown user
Dog Park
Love living here. Quiet neighborhood, short walk to Safeway/Menlo Park, easy access to dog park and tennis courts.

downtown palo alto
this area is great with lots of restaurants and a handful of bars and of course really close to Stanford. Unfortunately living here is incredibly expensive

Allied Arts area
Easy bike ride to Stanford (~10-15 min to the business school) and walkable to downtown menlo and downtown palo alto
unknown user
I live here now. Like it because it's close to Stanford and to the 101 and there are lots of nice spacious houses. Fun to have a backyard! But it's definitely the suburbs...
unknown user

Great proximity to downtown Palo Alto for a livelier scene (or work), but it's pretty far from the freeway if you need to take 101 for your commute.
