Bhaskar was very welcoming. And then he let us be. However he did check on us one morning to make sure all was going well. The room was fine and well equipped! Neighborhood quiet enough so slept well, it was great!
Great host who reply very quickly and ask to ensure I am comfortable with the stay. We also had a great conversation on a common interest too!
Great space, ~10 minute drive to Stanford's campus. Didn't interact with the hosts too much, but they left me very detailed instructions on how to get into the place. Thanks, monmi & bhaskar!
Very convenient location in mountain view. Room was clean, with a private entrance. It feels like a small apartment...for the price less than that of a hotel room. I met Bhaskar when checking in. He is friendly, easy to get along with and easy to get to know. Overall, a very good experience!
Hosts were friendly and welcoming. Very much enjoyed the accommodations. The room was as described, clean and comfortable. Use of the small refrigerator was appreciated. Also, appreciated was the private entrance. The home is located in a private neighborhood close to downtown. Hosts allowed us to park in their driveway rather than on street. Would definitely choose to stay here again.
Our hosts were warm, friendly, and helpful. The room was just as advertised. The location was within easy driving distance to Stanford. We enjoyed our stay and would be happy to return.
Space was fantastic and exactly as described. Very private, and a great place to get a good nights rest. Had the chance to chat with Bhaskar at the beginning at my stay and he's a great host who made me feel very comfortable. The location is great and only a 5-10 minute walk to the grocery store and restaurants.
About the Host, Monmi & Bhaskar
Both of us work in the high tech.
Monmi is a software engineer who loves to build friendly user interfaces like that of Airbnb. Originally trained as an economist, it was her idea to "optimize" utilization of the spare separate room by putting it in Airbnb!
Bhaskar is into high tech product management & marketing, who still hasn't given up on his dream of becoming a rockstar someday! (When the room is not rented out, there's a good chance you will find him strumming on his guitar there!).
Both of us are into yoga, good food, and good music.
