Margaret is a wonderful host! She made me feel very much at home. I really needed to relax and it was the perfect place to do it :)

I had a great time staying with Margaret on Waverley Street whilst I was working at the Hoover Institution. Margaret was a wonderfully kind and generous host, with lots of useful tips for the local area, and it was always a pleasure to come home at night to see her and the dogs (Bear and Mack). It's a 1 mile/15 minute walk to California Avenue station and a 3 mile/45 minute walk to Stanford or downtown Palo Alto, so Margaret's offer of a bike was invaluable. It's a lovely neighbourhood and I couldn't recommend this place more highly.

Thank you for being a wonderful host! A classmate and I stayed here for law school interviews, and it was a great home base for a week and a half. Margaret was gracious and kind (letting us use her bikes to get back and forth, for example), and we had a lovely stay.

I stayed here for 10 weeks for a summer internship and couldn't have asked for a nicer time. Margaret was great, a truly amazing human being. The room is furnished, there's a TV on the wall, a desk, a fan... everything you could need. Plenty of closet space. Access to washer/dryer. Your own bathroom with a very nice shower. At the price this place goes for, and with the host you get, it's a steal. Not to mention the location is great for Palo Alto. Highly, highly recommend. Thank you Margaret!

Thanks, Margaret, for being so awesome! We had many great things in this trip, but meeting you was certainly the highlight. J will practice his new book-binding and rose-colouring skills, and I will try to design better courses. thanks!

I stayed this room for 5 weeks. I went to palo alto to read documents in the Hoover institution for my research. The owner offered me a bike, but I had to walk to the Hoover institution everyday, because I didn't know how to ride a bike. There is a big grocery store near the house, and a Caltrain station. Margaret is a very kind person, so I really enjoyed conversation with her. (She is a english teacher, so my poor english didn't bother my life in this house.)

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Margaret's place for 8 weeks. Palo Alto is a paradise and it still feels like a dream. Thank you so much for making our stay perfect and our time unforgettable, Marty! I will miss our 'lazy new york times'-Sundays! =)

I would like to add that since I first listed this there has been an addition of two dogs, one a very large friendly Yellow Lab named Bear and another, a cranky Chihuahua named Mack. Neither live in the house but they do visit.
You know what I think: Everybody should be happy at least most of the time
and
In real life, if you can, you should.
