We enjoyed staying at Evan's place very much. The apt was bright, clean, spacious and well equipped. Evan sent me an info package just before our trip, which included everything from grocery stores, restaurants, suggested activities and other services like transportation. This info package was a great help. We loved the Stanford Dish trail, but we would've never known the trail if Evan didn't tell us. The apt is located in a beautiful neighborhood, and is within walking distance to coffer shops, grocery stores, restaurants and beautiful Stanford.
We had a great visit; the apartment is as described and Evan was a responsive host.
We came for a conference at Stanford and found a great place to stay in this apartment. Evan is very helpful and accommodating and made absolutely sure nothing was amiss during our stay.
This was my second time staying at Evan's and it was great as usual! The unit was nice and clean and close to a lot of amenities.
Evan was fantastic. Very flexible with our check in time (I wanted to drop off flowers and groceries to receive my family) and responsive throughout the process. The house was just as described: clean, spacious and location was perfect. I live on Stanford campus with my husband and it took us 8 minutes to commute. Nice neighborhood, close to Safeway, Bevmo, restaurants... I could not recommend this location more. My family was very comfortable and we're all thankful to Evan for letting us stay there! Thank you!
The apartment is in a nice and quiet neighborhood, close to shops and cafes and all. We found it exaclty as advertised. Evan was nice and hepful, and quick in supporting us in some minor requests we had on furnishings.
This property is beautifully clean.there was no difficulty with finding the keys and settling in after our long flight.
Provision of tea coffee and washing materials was a welcome bonus.
Instructions on how to operate the TV would have been appreciated
