House Rules

Remember that this house is shared with the homeowner and other Airbnb guests Please be respectful of the space and the people so we can all enjoy our stay here.

Because of a few incidents, I’ve outlined some explicit rules below. But most importantly, use common sense as your guide. Do your best to keep the place clean and tidy during your stay and leave it in good condition when you go.

Please follow these guidelines while you are in my home:

Please take off your shoes when you enter and do not wear shoes inside the house.
The bamboo floors are pretty, but also delicate. Please do not slide heavy objects across the floor and do not wear high heels (or any shoes) in the house.
Unless otherwise noted, you can help yourself to food in the fridge and the cupboards. If you use the last of something (cooking oil, spices, condiments, dish soap, etc.), please replace it.
Clean up after yourself as you go. Wash your dishes (or put them in the dishwasher) as you use them, wipe down surfaces in the kitchen and bathroom after each use, etc.
Eat in the kitchen and dining area only. Please do not eat in the living area or bedrooms.
If something is not working properly or breaks, please let me know right away.
All guests must be approved by me. Don’t invite anyone to stay at my house without prior approval.
Absolutely no smoking and no pets. No exceptions.

A few favors to ask. Your help with a few things is greatly appreciated:

If any mail or packages arrive for me, please set them aside where I can find them.
If you are staying longer than a few weeks, please do me the favor of watering the plants. They don't need much. A little water every few weeks and they're happy.

Please treat my home as you would your own and leave it in good condition for the next guest. Before you go, please:

Leave the house in good order (furniture in place, no big messes, etc.)
Strip the beds. Put used linens and towels in one pile on the floor.
Wash your dishes. Or run a final load of dishes in the dishwasher.
Take all of your personal belongings with you.
Leave extra keys on the kitchen counter. Use the house key to lock the front door and then slide the key back under the door.

Thanks for your cooperation!

Our stay at Laura's place was simply fantastic. Her home is clean, beautiful and well-stocked with anything you could need to be comfortable. My girlfriend and I stayed for 4 weeks and Laura made every effort to make sure we comfortable while still giving us our privacy. The place is located just above a Wingstop and Jamba Juice with a Nordstrom Rack and grocery store within a short walking distance. The bedroom was beautifully decorated with a mounted flat screen TV and a spacious bathroom connected. The living area and kitchen were virtually always free to use as Laura always tries to be accommodating. She's also a joy to chat with, a perfectly pleasant hostess. Quick to respond and communicates everything you should know about the area. Couldn't ask for a better stay and hostess!

My stay at Laura's home was fantastic. She was friendly and accommodating to all my needs. The apartment itself was clean and orderly, and the views of the mountain range were unobstructed. The location is also very convenient, with multiple public transportation options to get into the heart of Palo Alto. Overall, I had a fantastic experience at Laura's home, and I would highly recommend this place for anyone traveling to Palo Alto.

We were lucky to call this place home for 6 months (over two consecutive bookings)! The bedroom is large enough for a couple, with a beautiful spacious bathroom. The house itself only has 1 more bedroom, and Laura carefully selects her tenants - you are guaranteed to stay with pleasant and respectful roommates. The house is beautifully furnished and the kitchen is very well equipped. You also have access to an indoor parking and to an inner courtyard (with a private section to enjoy a meal/morning coffee!). The house is part of a small townhouse complex which is completely gated and very secure. People were surprised when we told them we lived in East Palo Alto, but it was actually fine and turned out to be a perfect location: 25 minute bike ride to Stanford, 15 minute bike ride to Caltrain, 1 minute walk to a grocery store (Mi Pueblo). Lastly, Laura is a fantastic host! She responds to her emails very quickly, is always available to help and is a great roommate! Overall, I would definitely recommend this place for anyone/couple looking for a short or long-term rental in the Silicon Valley. Thanks again Laura!

The town home was exactly as pictured and was a great living environment. Laura was very nice and the whole experience was quite pleasant.

Laura's place is clean, neat, comfortable, and easy to access. The private room as well as the entire home is exactly as pictured and prior to my arrival Laura made me feel comfortable with the arrangements. (I also used the laundry which worked out fantastic.)

I love living in the Bay Area and all that it has to offer. On the weekends, I enjoy going to Santa Cruz, Half Moon Bay, Big Sur or into San Francisco. I also travel out of the area quite a bit - for work and for pleasure. Some of my favorite spots include destinations in Latin America, Africa, and Europe.

When I'm home, I rent out one of the bedrooms and share my place with Airbnb guests. When I'm away, I rent out my entire place. (I have multiple listings for each scenario.) I've had great experiences with Airbnb so far and look forward to many more!
