Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Our hosts, Phil and Barbara, were sweet and welcoming. Their house is in the perfect location - quiet street, cute backyard, and amazing community amenities including a playground and pool. Our three-year-old daughter loved every minute. Thank you so much for a comfortable stay. The beds were the BEST of any airbnb/(website hidden) house we've rented (and we've rented A LOT)!

  • Stay in Phil's house made our visit to the Silicon Valley much more enjoyable. We are a small family (couple + 1 year old baby) and needed a place to stay for a week. The place was great for us, in a beautiful and very safe neighborhood and close to shops. It's ten minutes from Stanford University.

    The house is comfortable and had everything we needed. Spacious bedroom and bathroom, a complete kitchen and a patio were our baby could play. Internet works fine.

    I would certainly return.

  • Lovely stay, very convenient for SFO , trips to San Fran and awesome for working locally as we were. House is great, patio lovely to sit out on. Cat is no bother but as someone unfortunately with cat allergies it was a small frustration (the allergies not the cat). All instructions and information clear and organised , overall a great experience. Thank you.

  • My family of 6 is coming down to Palo Alto for a piano event and we stayed at this house for 5 days. Philip kindly provided 2 airbeds for kids. The house accommodation is beyond expectation, clean and well organized, love the artwork displayed in the house. The neighborhood is gated, safe and quiet. We did get chance to walk a bit to the pool and big playground area. What turned out to be perfect for us is the house has a piano and that is exactly what we are looking for for a while.

    The total AirBnb experience is smooth and communication with Philip is great. Philip provided adequate information on living around the house, cat caring instructions. Overall very satisfactory rental and first AirBnb experience. Highly recommended. Would love to stay again next time if we come to the same event.

  • Property was wonderful. Very roomy and comfortable. The cat was friendly and very low maintenance and Philip was very reasonable and easy to deal with. Would definitely consider staying again and would recommend to others!

  • We stayed for two weeks in this nice house in very quiet surroundings while working at Stanford University and having meetings around in the Bay area. Whether you are on the job or doing a lot of sight-seeing we can recommend it as a safe base to return to for cooking your own meals in the well equipped kitchen and relax on the great deck in the garden.

  • Wir haben Urlaub in der Bay Area gemacht. Dafür war das Haus sehr zentral gelegen. Es war ruhig, sauber und die neue Terasse war sehr gemütlich zum Frühstücken. Besonders haben wir auch das Schwimmen in dem großen Pool genossen. Barbara und Phil waren sehr nette Gastgeber. Sie haben immer sofort per email reagiert und waren für alle Fragen offen.

  • I had a great time staying at Phil and Barbara's house. The house is just lovely and situated in a quiet and nice neighborhood. The hosts are a very welcoming and friendly couple. I look forward to staying there again the future.
