Nice, clean, and spacious house with 3 rooms that are offered to people on Airbnb. I enjoyed my stay and would come back any time.
We had a great stay at Betty's, restaurants and stores are a 5 min walk away, rooms were bright and clean, beds were very comfortable, and Betty was very helpful for all questions and concerns
I stayed at the place for about two months for an internship program. Betty and Benny are the best hosts I have ever met. We became good friends after my stay. And we chat almost everything: where to go grocery with a reasonable price, where to travel nearby, and even how to choose a job! :) In a word, they are just great people.
I felt like being at home since day one. The room is very clean, quiet and cozy. I was also welcomed to use anything in the kitchen, which is very spacious and convenient. My requests were always replied timely. The location of the place is really nice as it sits next to San Antonio shopping center. It's also easy to bike / drive to Palo Alto or Mountain View.
I highly recommend the place, whether it's just a short stay or a relatively long rent like my case. And I'm sure you will get more out of your time here by talking to the nice hosts.
This is my first time to use airbnb and it is a really good experience. Betty and Benny are working in a tech startup and they are passionate about what they are doing. The room is very nice, clean and quiet. I am sharing the bathroom with another software engineer and that is not a problem for me. I had a few phone interviews while I stayed here and the only concern for me is that there is no desk in the room. But since both the hosts and the other guest were not in during daytime, I could use the big table downstairs in the living room. I would highly recommend this and would like to come back when I visit bay area next time.
Perfect hosts. Ben and Betty are very responsive and provided a nice room as advertised.
My wife and I stayed 10 days and it was a really nice time. Betty and her partner are so kind and friendly. We could not speak English very well, but we managed to communicate. They are nice host. I want to see them again.
Location is also good. Los Altos is safe, clean and comfortable.
I was scrambling for a place to stay last minute, and Betty was the most responsive person in the area. She and her husband were very welcoming and accommodating. It was nice to be able to come and go as I pleased (with a key code on the front door, no key to worry about carrying or losing). Everything was clean and tidy. If there is no one else staying in the other room, you have the bathroom to yourself, which is nice (the bathroom is between and accessed by both bedrooms). I had an issue using the guest wifi, which I informed them about and I'm confident they will fix, but probably a good idea to make sure it works for you when you arrive.
Many restaurants within 5 minutes walking distance (try the bulgogi at Su-Dam). It took me closer to 20 minutes to walk to the Caltrain station, but it is an easy walk. There is also Safeway and other grocery stores nearby, between Caltrain and the home, so they are also within walking distance.
I appreciate the small touches, like the drawer in the bathroom provided a toothbrush and mini toothpaste. I felt like I was staying with relatives who give you your privacy and space, and I prefer that over staying alone at a hotel. I would definitely stay here again!
