my stay at Ying and Sherry's place was fine. Everything was provided for. My hosts must have been quite busy, because I did not meet them in person, only had contact via email and text messages.
It was a good home for my stay in Palo Alto.. Ying shared his tea... downside was no access to stove, but all and all a solid stay.
Quiet neighborhood and good location esp. if you have a car. Ying is very friendly and hospitable. Enjoyed the stay.
