This was my first time using AirBnB and it was great! Sherry's home is lovely! Everything was very clean, a nice and quiet neighborhood. I stayed there for a month, I was out most of the day but I did get to speak with Sherry two or three times, it was very nice meeting her. If you want privacy and enjoy a quiet lifestyle I highly recommend you to stay at this place, you'd love it.

My stay was very pleasant! The room is just as described and the neighborhood is pretty quiet. The house is not near to a lot of things, but is close to several bus stops, so this helps. Sherry was always very helpful when I needed, even tough we didn't meet in person. Positive points: Price, quality of the room, private entrance, silent house. Negative points: No access to the kitchen and having to share the bathroom with other guests. (Both points were described at the ad, so it was not a surprise. Just pointing it out because they were the only negative points I could think about!) It was a very nice stay and I would definitely recommend it to a friend! Thanks for all Sherry!

My fiancee stayed with Ying and Sherry and had a very peaceful, calming and comfortable stay. The place was in a very nice neighborhood, the house and room were clean and the bed was comfortable. We would definitely book with Ying and Sherry again if we need a place to stay in Palo Alto. Thank you for having such great accommodation for Michael!

The room was clean and cheerily decorated; the bed comfortable. It was nice having a private entrance. The bathroom is shared and it is important to coordinate your time with the student sharing it, but they are very clear about their communication and needs. Nice bathroom and shower just outside the room. The orange trees just outside the private entrance are wonderful! Nice people, wish I could have stayed longer!

Second stay here in Palo Alto. Sherry is very friendly and the family is welcoming, although we didn't see each other too much. Private entrance is convenient to come and go.
