Amazing location five blocks from University Ave and the bustling activity in downtown Palo Alto. An easy 20min stroll or 10min bike ride gets you on Stanford campus. Charming, safe and peaceful oasis in a quiet residential neighborhood. Iris House is a painted lady Victorian with beautiful gardens and colorful artwork. This light-filled room has modern amenities & super comfy bed.

Wonderful retreat for most, but please read our house guidelines to see if it is right for your needs.

I enjoyed my stay at Carina’s in the sky room! It is a quiet location and not too far from downtown Palo Alto, 10-15 min walk. My room was clean and the baked goods for breakfast were delicious!

The Iris House offers a clean and convenient sanctuary for guests staying in Palo Alto. I enjoyed the magnificent garden and the quiet house. I would definitely recommend staying at the Iris House, and I am likely to stay there again the next time I find myself in the area.
