  • The house is located just 10-15 minute walk to central Palo Alto and Caltrain station which is very convenient. There are supermarkets nearby. The house and the room are clean and beautiful as in pictures. The bathroon is in excellent condition. Kitchen is also available. People staying in the house are all helpful and friendly. I think I made a good decision staying here for one month.

    March 2013
  • Garden room oasis is a perfect place to start a visit of the silicon valley or the Stanford University. All persons in the house: Mei Lin, Ross and the other guests (Riccardo and Jonny) were very pleasant. Mei Lin has a great collection of musical instruments and piano music is often in the air. I enjoyed it very much.
