I enjoy the outdoors, participating and watching sports and spending time my awesome three year old boy.
I rented Neville's place for an out-of-town coworker who was visiting us. The location was perfect for our needs and my coworker said that everything about the unit was as described. There were no issues with getting/leaving the keys, and Neville responded to all of my emails very promptly.
I stayed at Neville's place for about 3 months and would do it again. The apartment was clean, in good condition, and had all the amenities that were promised. The location is obviously excellent. Moreover, Neville is very responsive. About one month into my stay, I noticed that the shower pressure had dropped significantly. After shooting Neville a quick email, the next day someone came to replace the shower head (Neville handled this entirely, I did not need to be there for the fix). Problem solved.
Again, it was a great stay. I think the most significant take-away for a reader considering Neville's place is that I would gladly stay there again, whether it be for a few days or a few months. Neville was a great host and I'm sure you'll be happy with your experience.
Great place to stay, super close to town and Neville was an extremely helpful, communicative and awesome host to deal with.
Be sure to leave a window open if it rains as it gets a little damp but other than that it was a great place with a super helpful host and easily one of the closest to University Ave with all the shops, restaurants and activities. Wi-fi, kitchen and TV were all great and everything worked perfect for us.
I booked Neville's apartment for my mother who was visiting me in Palo Alto. Our experience was amazing. The apartment very tidy and clean. Its very cozy and cute and perfect for one person, two should fit fine too. The location is unbeatable with a couple of blocks to University Ave in Palo Alto.
I had mistakenly booked my mother's trip for a day less than her actual stay. Neville was super helpful when we realized the situation and even offered to have my mom put her luggage at his place. He was a great host overall.
Highly recommend this place. When my mom comes back again or if friends visit, I am going to definitely try and book this place.
We enjoyed Neville's darling apartment. It was sunny, clean, and equipped with everything we needed. We were within walking distance of all of the University Avenue/Lytton Street restaurants and coffee houses. Thank you, Neville. We really enjoyed our stay.
We had to cancel our 13-night reservation the next day after arriving as we noticed the warning signs posted outside the house: "This Area Contains Chemicals Known To The State Of California To Cause Cancer and Birth Defects Or Other Reproductive Harm."
Neville should inform guests beforehand, which is the law in California: "Before renting pre-1978 housing, landlords must disclose the presence of known lead-based paint and lead-based paint hazards in the dwelling." Neville did not give us a full refund.
In addition to the above, the apartment wasn't very clean: we used a towel to wipe down the inside of the tub and the towel was black with dirt.
This is a great space for the price given the area and the fact that I had it for myself. I would stay there again anytime.
This was a fantastic place to stay while I was in town for several weeks doing research at Stanford. The apartment was in a great area, close to everything on University Ave and within easy reach of the campus. The place was set up nicely and had everything I needed.
Neville was great to interact with, very nice when I met him, and even left me bananas to eat! I would absolutely stay there again.
I stayed at Neville's place for a week and honestly I couldn't have asked for more. It's located right in downtown Palo Alto, a 2-minute walk from University Ave and about 10 minutes to the CalTrain / public transit station. The apartment is small, but seems to have everything. There's a fully-equipped kitchen, which at the time I was there was stocked with everything you need to make pancakes with (including the frozen blueberries). There's ample parking space on the back of the house for those of you like me who chose to rent a car.
Highly recommended! Thanks, Nev!
A very cozy and nicely situated appartment.
I really felt at home and Neville was a helpful and very friendly host.
