Private and clean room in a beautiful neighborhood. I was here to visit Stanford for a few days and the location was ideal. Lex also took out some time at the start of my stay to explain the surrounds and kept in contact to make sure all was well. Would recommend.
Everything went fine. The house is nice and is located in a quiet neighborhood. It is within a very short (and pleasant) bike ride to the Stanford campus.
A stay with Lex may offer the greatest combination of a perfect host and a perfect house. Lex is friendly, helpful, well-organized, and knowledgeable about hosting. You will wish he were around more, instead of out at work most of the time. The house is in a great neighborhood, and you have the whole ground floor including your room which is about 15' by 15' with windows on two sides. The living room and kitchen have windows on three sides. And Lex's quarters are on the second floor. Perfect!
Lex was a gracious host, and his home was beautiful and perfectly located. Lex was incredibly accommodating and helpful, giving me a full tour of the home when I arrived and even helping me to plan my visit while in town. His home is very clean and perfectly decorated, and the room was both inviting and comfortable. I look forward to staying here again the next time I'm visiting Stanford.
