Nice and comfortable place. I enjoyed staying there and would do so again. The place is well equipped with towels, cookware, and has a great kitchen. Shawn was nice and made sure all was well.
I stayed for a month at Shawn's place while I was doing an elective rotation at Stanford Hospital. My stay was fantastic!!! The place is beautiful, with lots of light and perfectly and fully equipped, and it is also very spacious. It was a short, beautiful drive to Stanford Hospital every day. Shawn and her family were always around and very helpful, I felt like I had my own family nearby to help me with anything I needed. The place is also only 2 blocks from a YMCA which was very convenient to exercise. I highly recommend this apartment, I would definitely recommend it and stay there again!
Shawn's and Chrystie's upstairs apartment was ideal for our week-long stay while we (three people) conducted research work at Stanford University's Hoover Institute and explored downtown Palo Alto. Considering the location, amenities, and cordiality, the value was excellent.
When we arrived, Shawn and her husband gave us a friendly and thorough introduction to the place. Shawn's mother Chrystie, who lives on the first floor, made us feel welcome too. Should we have needed anything, there was always someone readily available around the property.
The apartment was bright and airy, yet cozy. Everything was clean and orderly. The couch worked well as a second bed for one person, and the kitchen was well stocked with all the cookware and dishes we needed for the week. The bedroom had its own separate key for extra security while we were away. Our laptops were unable to connect to the wifi (Shawn was good enough to warn me about this before we booked), but the spare computer in the bedroom came in handy. The balcony was also a welcome feature.
When our travels take us back to the Palo Alto area, we will certainly give this apartment our first consideration.
We loved our stay at Shawn's and Christy's upstairs apartment and would highly recommend it. Shawn went extra miles to help us out. She even lent us her mobile phone as well as sleeping bags. The place is very convenient located at midtown Palo Alto, just a couple of houses away from a nice park. We definitely look forward to returning again in the future.
We, that`s my wife and our little baby, stayed in may an june about five weeks in christines and shawns appartement and enjoyed the time very, very much! The hosts were very friendly and helded us whenever we needed something. (Thank you very much for the babygrib!). Also there was always time for a little talk, also with the kids in the pre-school ;)
In aditional we can absolutly recommend the studio!
We were very happy with Shawn and Chrystie's apartment. It was just what my husband and I were looking for: comfortable, private, excellent location, very reasonable price. Shawn was very accommodating. We definitely would go there again and will highly recommend to everyone. Excellent accommodations. Diane and Dick

My name is Shawn and I will be your host. I will be the one who you will contact if you have questions regarding all 3 properties. I run a Montessori Preschool on the Ross road property for the past 27 years. I am mother of 3 almost grown children. I love to travel to warm places with my husband of 26 years, cook greek food and take day trips to local beaches and lakes to fish or just relax. I am looking forward to meeting my new guests into my home. I am also helping a family friend manage his mothers home down the street on Gailen Court, so if you have any questions regarding that property, I am the contact.
