Renting out our spare bedroom on Airbnb is a fun adventure! : )

We really enjoyed their home and the farm like environment. VERY comfortable home and super hosts. Very convenient for our visit and we highly recommend this host! Good luck to their new arrival, still in the oven; this baby girl is in for a lifetime treat! Good Luck!
Benjie and Stephanie were great hosts, and we slept well in their spare bedroom. Their home is located near public transit, making it very convenient for getting to and from Stanford. I highly recommend staying here.
Benjie and Stephanie were exceptional hosts and the bed and room very comfortable.

Benjie and Stephanie are absolutely attractive. This is demonstrated by the fact that many people including thier friends and airbnb users have been visiting to their house. I'd like to stay again when I go to arround Mountain View.
The Holson's were two of the most genuine people I have met. They were extremely accommodating and made me feel right at home. Although I didn't have the opportunity to enjoy much time at their beautiful house, when I was there it was quiet and comfortable. The guest room is large and tucked away from the rest of the house with a very comfortable (and unique!) bed. I didn't feel any pressure to socialize, but I sure enjoyed it when I did. Stephanie and Benjie are kind, bright, and friendly, and I enjoyed spending a bit of time getting to know both of them.
Very charming place, really a little paradise in the middle of the Silicon Valley. And Stephanie and Benjie are great hosts - what more can you expect?
Benjie and Stephanie's house truly felt like a home away from home for me during my stay in Mountain View. I felt so welcome, and so appreciated the "extra" offerings of hospitality and generosity that went far above and beyond what I would expect...A raincoat and boots to borrow when the shoes I had with me didn't suit the weather...A small fridge in my room...A lovely shared breakfast and conversation on Saturday morning...These two are the friendliest of hosts, and their guest room (and whole home) is comfortable, lovingly decorated, and spacious. I loved it!
I am happy to offer my HIGHEST recommendation of Holson's Urban Farm!
Benjie and Stephanie are great! Their hospitality is truly unmatched, we felt so welcome in their home and they went above and beyond to make sure we had a great stay. The house and room are beautifully decorated and the location was perfect for us. I'd love to stay with them again!
We had a lovely night at the Holson's farm. Benji and Stephanie were awesome hosts and made us feel very comfortable for our first airbnb experience. The room was more than comfortable, clean an had everything we needed. The farm was fun and animals adorable! We'd love to stay here again on our next visit to palo alto!
I have nothing but great things to say about Benjie and Stephanie's lovely, charming home. They were extremely welcoming while also letting me have my own space - all of the comforts of staying with old friends, but with no obligation to hang out or be "on" when I was tired. I don't sleep well away from home, but their bed gave me nothing but excellent nights of deep slumber. Plentiful hot water and a great location were much appreciated. (It's a very pleasant stroll to/from Mountain View Caltrain.) I hope to return someday!
Benjie was a great guest! I'd have him back happily.
Benjie and Stephanie were amazing guests. Very respectful and extremely neat. They even left couple metro tickets for the next guests to use. Glad to have hosted them and they are welcome anytime.
Benjie was a top guest and I would recommend him at any time!
Benjie and Stephanie are both super-awesome.
Benjie's a puppeteer and has met Jim Henson. He builds robots. And he looks absolutely dashing in his airbnb photo.
Stephanie always takes care of her guests. She makes (and chooses) fabulous art. And she's cute as a button.
