Response from Miki:

Thank you Benjamin for your review. Sorry if you had any discomfort with the temperature. I try to keep the A/C on in the main house but it automatically turns off at 68 and if it is left on for too long. We have had an exceptionally hot Summer in Palo Alto this year :( As seen in my reviews from last year there was never an issue with the temperature. I would have been happy to address this if you had mentioned it during your stay, that's why I keep checking in with my guests to make sure they have a comfortable stay. It was a pleasure hosting you.

Dear Angela,
I am sorry you did not have a comfortable stay.
it definitely was the hottest weekend ever in Palo Alto.
And my place is advertised for 1 person only. The bed is NOT old and only a full size and not for 2 people. I am sure squeezing 2 people on it contributed to the discomfort and the heat as well.
What you see under the bed is the cover that I bought for the box spring that happens to be too big for it and therefore the extra material is sagging down. I will tape that, thanks for the note.
My place is NOT advertised as a "detached" studio. And I don't know how the photos would be suggesting that ?! I will add more photos or edit my description so that it is more clear.
Unfortunately the A/C control is in the main house and has not been an issue so far, that is why I provide an A/C tower for the room. Again I am sorry you did not feel at ease to let me know of your discomfort while you were my guest.

Lyn, Thanks for your review.
Just to clarify, the studio is not advertised as bigger than it is and the photos are regular photos. The exterior photo is so that people recognize the house once they get here and also showing the pathway to the studio. I will measure the studio and provide square footage soon.
The house is 10 min walking to Caltrain, 10 min to Midtown Palo Alto, 12 min to California ave shopping and dining, and 40 min to Stanford and Downtown.
At the rate it is renting, with NO cleaning fee, I think a free bike would not be very reasonable. However, I do have a bike that my guests can use, if they asked, as they have done so before. Sorry you never asked me for a bike otherwise I would have lent it to you.
With Regards,

Thank you Alan. I am actually in the process of changing the drapes by next week.
I ordered lined thicker drapes.
I took the hotplate away because nobody was using it, and the one time a guest used it, it burned and made a mess and a very bad lingering smell for couple of weeks.
