Interaction with Guests
I am currently occupying the master bedroom, so you will see me during the morning and evening on weekdays, and I will likely be around during the weekend. If you need anything, do not hesitate to ask! If you would like any groceries for your arrival, we can set up an Instacart grocery list and I will ensure that it's delivered before you come. If you need something badly, I have a car, I can get you what you need if you ask nicely :)
I love how family-friendly my apartment is, and my wonderful neighbors. Everyone is quiet, respectful, and friendly. The area is very conveniently located, with easy access to shops on California Ave., Stanford, and the Caltrain. Having quick access to a nearby convenience store, liquor store, and Starbucks is always handy too!
The VTA #22 is a 3 minute leisurely walk toward El Camino Real. You can also grab the Stanford Marguerite shuttle. There is a Hertz rental car location nearby on Park Ave. that I usually rent vehicles from. Finally, it is not far to the Caltrain, making it easy to get to San Francisco or San Jose, or anywhere in between.
Other Things to Note
This apartment is exactly 1 mile from California Avenue, with its great restaurants, shops, and Sunday farmer's market. It's also 1 mile from the California Avenue Caltrain, making it very easy to get to San Francisco, San Jose, or Palo Alto downtown. Finally, the apartment is close to Stanford University's campus, making it a great spot for visiting students and/or faculty.
No pets and no smoking please. If you do smoke, you need to respect the complex's rules, which is to smoke on the road. Please keep common areas clean and tidy, making sure to clean up after yourself and wash all dishes. On weeknights, please keep noise levels to a minimum after 10PM. On weekends, this extends to 12AM. I really like my neighbors, and I'd like to ensure that I maintain a good relationship with them. Otherwise, enjoy yourself, introduce yourself to myself and others, and have fun!
I stayed here for a couple days of interviews and Jay was a great host. He was very welcoming and responsive, making it a very smooth process to get settled and oriented. The apartment was clean and well stocked. I didn't spend a lot of time there but it was a great place to get ready for and unwind after a couple exhausting days. The neighborhood is quiet and close to some nice restaurants. Overall it was a great stay.
Sharing Jay's house for three months has been really a nice experience. Jay is a very very friendly host, always available to help and making guests feel 100% at home from day one.
His house is located in a good position from which you can easily reach Stanford (15-20 mins by bike, 40-50 by bus) or downtown Palo Alto; it is also very near (15 mins by foot, 5 mins by bike) to the California Avenue Caltrain station.
It is also very well served as there are several grocery stores nearby.
The house itself is very spacious, with a huge living room w/ TV set and a kitchen; there is also a small private space outdoor where you can park your bike safely. The guest bedroom has a huge bed (at least by European standards :) ) and a big armchair where you can hang many clothes and hide suitcases. The neighbourhood is very quiet except for an occasional train passing in the Caltrain railway (~200/300 meters away from the house).
Even if you had any problem with the house, Jay is always available for help. I really recommend this place as it is relatively cheap (for Palo Alto) and very comfortable and well-placed.
I stayed 1 month in Jay's flat, including two weeks with my partner. I really enjoyed Jay's place and the residence. It is nice and 10 min walk from shops, 20 min cycling to the Stanford University (and there is a swimming pool!). Jay was also very nice and discreet. A good place to stay!
Jay was totally awesome from the very beginning especially being welcomed with my own wifi code that was not only cute but thoughtful. The apt was super clean, convenient and comfortable. It almost felt like I was living in my own apt. Seeing Jay with a happy face and a friendly demeanor was a special treat. I would recommend his place to anyone and everyone who wants to visit Palo Alto for a few weeks!
Jayanth is an excellent host who'll do his best to make you feel at home at his place, and a great person to chat with. I don't think I could have found a better place in Palo Alto to stay during my internship.
The residence itself is in a very quiet neighborhood, which was perfect for me as I was working long hours during my stay. The house and the room are completely spotless and well furnished with all necessary amenities.
Jay is a very nice and considerate host. His place is very clean and tidy, and the location is very good. My parents enjoyed their stay a lot. Would certain recommend!
