Betty and her friends, Eric and Jason, are great host. The location is close by to shops and the room was very clean. Will certainly stay here again next time!
Stayed at James road several times already. Always a very easy and comformable experience. Betty is always really helpful and will make sure you have everything you need. It's become my west coast home away from home! Thank you Betty.
Really enjoyed our stay. It was a very nice place and very convenient location.
Great place, perfectly clean and very comfortable. Room is huge and private ensuite is excellent. Good and quiet neighbourhood close to downtown PA.
The place is really cozy and clean, the area is safe and nice to walk/jog in the evening. Really comfy bed, fresh linens and towels. Did not use the rest of the house very much, as the room has everything I needed, the hosts (Betty and Beny) were both welcoming and considerate.
Thanks for a nice stay!
We came to visit our son, who highly recommended AirBNB because he's had nothing but great experiences with the site whenever he goes skiing in Tahoe. We also expected a lovely stay at a nice house with some access to some facilities, judging from the pictures on the web page.
Turns out the pictures are...let's say "out of date". The ground floor is actually converted into office space for the owner's biz so we wouldn't be able to use that space at all, including weekend. To get to the kitchen you have to go through their office so we didn't use that either, except for putting juice and milk in the refrigerator. Little things like these that was sort of inconsistent with the description on the webpage kept popping up throughout the stay. If the Wi-Fi provided is the "Most Fast Internet" at "the Heart of Silicon Valley", then we're pretty disappointed at Silicon Valley. The "LIGHT COOKING ONLY" kitchen also became a kitchen that was "NEVER INTENDED TO BE RENTED OUT" according to the Guidebook at the apartment. Other things like laundry arrangement and check-in time, and we noticed that certain details have been changed on its webpage since our stay.
The location is decent and convenient for us to be close to our son, right between Mountain View and Palo Alto, although it's a 56-minute walk to downtown Palo Alto according to Google Map. and the room itself was fine, at 2nd floor with a private bathroom and a clean bed.
All in all there was no major problem that made us want to look for somewhere else to stay. If you are prepared to pay USD 120/day for a short stay at a room like this, without TV, for the particular location, that's it. To us, it'd have been nice if we had got full disclosure from the host of what we'll get access to beforehand.
I don't usually bother writing these comments. But I know AirBNB is different. Its improvement relies on the trust and feedback between the hosts and the guests. So hopefully my words will help make this a better experience for the next guest.
I stayed at Betty's place for a month when I first moved to Palo Alto. Being that I was new to the area and without most of my belongings, it could have been a very stressful month for me. Betty made me feel right at home! It turned out to be quite and easy month and I was sad to leave her place for my new apartment!
The room and bathroom were very clean. The room is suite like, in that there's an initial door to enter the area that blocks off the bedroom and bathroom. So you can be completely separate from the rest of the place if you would like.
Everyone is friendly if you're looking to make new friends. But if you're looking to do your own thing during your stay, they let you be.
I couldn't have asked for a better situation! I will definitely recommend this place to friends and family that come to visit!
