Good, safe location. Definitely a geek house and a very friendly one. Aurora is an angel.
She is a great host and she helped a lot with the accommodation. She was very flexible with last minute scheduling and changes.
The apartment is huge and 15' to downtown palo alto by bike.

I had a great stay at the Geek House! Nice neighbourhood and near to food store and the 101. Communication with Aurora was easy and supportive.

The stay at auroras was great! We enjoyed it very much!
Thank you so much!
This Airbnb stay was different to any airbnb stay I have experienced but one I think is common in Palo Alto - a hacker house style! It is just like a big shared house and its every man for himself! (although this might just be the case at the moment as Aurora isn't there). The room is comfortable and has a great big bathroom. It was a great experience meeting other techies staying in the house. The house is clean but well worn (light colour carpets never a good idea!) but has everything you could need - laundry, fully equipped kitchen, garden with lemon tree. The immediate neighbourhood is good but a couple of blocks over it takes a turn for the worst! Don't be discouraged if your journey to arrive takes you through there! Very handy for downtown Palo Alto, too far to walk but a handy cycle or drive. If you don't have a car you would need to bike and be willing to use Lyfts/Uber. We thought we could do without a car but ended up getting one the second day. Zipcars also are not convenient. There is a mall walkable distance with starbucks and a large Mexican supermarket. Also close to the Four Seasons!
Great house, comfortable rooms, great host. Thanks for everything.
They seemed nice enough. Hate to write this but they certainly had more than the 2 people there they claimed as there were more sheets and lots of laundry enough for 4, took us six hours to run it all for 1 or 2 nights.
or they had a party in the afternoon which made it necessary for lots of bathrobes and towels. Our town has a water shortage so though they said they tried to do the laundry ahead of time,I felt it was to cover up the extra people. Felt sorry they had to arrive at 2 am so I did not charge for the extra persons. Just felt there was lots of garbage with no separation so we had to separate and left us a load of dishes saying they did the laundry instead. We do not want parties as someone got sick outside. I try to make our house as precious as possible with all the handmade things and to give a peaceful experience. People who are staying can park outside our house though it says no parking. I was surprised they also run an air b&B house as they did not have the same consideration
Aurora was a great guest! She would be welcome back any time!
Thanks Aurora for stay with us and come back soon,
Aurora is a super caring friend, who is just available on the bright sight of life! She is the happiest and most positive person, always helping, supporting and sharing her great ideas, knowledge, network, skills and love for life and will make your stay an unforgettable time! You will most likely have a new friend for your lifetime or never wanna leave her place!
In short: Aurora is THE host everyone should stay with!
Aurora is a great hostess, she is a wonderful & beautiful person, knowing how to make people feel comfortable and happy. The house is just fantastic, located in a very quiet and friendly area, at the same time close to the center of Palo Alto and just 3 min walk to a grocery shop and a supermarket. It's very enjoyable to stay in this remarkable house: clean, spacious and homelike!!! Still miss my staying there. Thank you Aurora so much! You made my stay unforgettable!
Aurora is a close friend of mine and I can vouch for her completely. She has very high integrity and is an extremely honest and kind person. And her house is really great. She'll not only host you, but will also make you feel as comfortable as she can. I 100% recommend that you stay with Aurora.
