Interaction with Guests
I should be home when you arrive to give you the key myself.
Plan to be in the other side of the house most of the time.
Ask me about Bitcoin.
When you check out, just leave the key on the dresser - no need to hand it to me directly.
Midtown Palo Alto is 3 miles from Stanford. Palo Alto is one of the most expensive small towns in Northern California, and the Midtown neighborhood is no exception. The old Eichler houses are slowly but surely getting replaced by $2 million, 2-story mansions.
A bus stop 3 minutes walk away. Never tried using the bus in Palo Alto.

Other Things to Note
Plenty of street parking. Just use your common sense to not block driveways. In Palo Alto we street-park with two wheels on the sidewalk. No need to worry about street cleaning days - the cleaning truck will just drive around your car and you will not get a ticket, let alone get towed.
Park on the street, NOT in front of the garage door.
Keep the noise down. My neighbors have paid through the nose to live in Palo Alto and so feel obligated to enjoy the silence. Please help them.
No smoking in the room. If you smoke in the back yard, please close the door & windows so the smoke does not spread into the room.

Everything went very smoothly and there were clear instructions for every situation. The place is really nice, all the facilities are great and the bed is comfortable. And also importantly the location is really good.
I had a great stay at Avram's, everything was as described, and it's a great location in a nice and quiet neighborhood. The place was clean and very comfortable. I will definitely stay again.
Avram is a very nice person. We had a wonderful warm welcome. The place is very calm in a secure neighborhood. Fantastic sleep and a well equipped bathroom. Would definitely recommend it and stay there again!
Listing was accurate. Neighborhood was nice. The room was clean and nicely set-up for guests. An overall positive experience. One area for improvement would be for the host (Avram) to make the guest feel less awkward when reaching out to get assistance for an issue with the room.
As a first time Airbnb user, I wasn't sure what to fully expect. It ended up going great. Very easy process, the place was as advertised and reviewed, and I will be back when in the area and need a nice, clean, easy place to stay.
Avram was very nice and patient with my flight delays. The room was clean and comfortable. I would stay again.
About the Host, Avram
I'm a 30-something guy, a web developer and a Bitcoin enthusiast. I have a 2 bedroom, 2 bath house so I would like to rent a bedroom and a bath. Sorry, kitchen not included. I'm currently (July 28, 2014) between jobs, so I probably will be at home during much of your stay. If you contact me on Friday night or Saturday, I will not respond until Saturday night - thanks for your patience.
