The place is super private and quiet. Highly recommended~
Julie is a fantastic host, very communicative, mindful and accommodating. Her place is in a great neighborhood. The separate entrance is nice bonus!
Julie was very considerate and accommodating. The space is tidy and located in a beautiful neighborhood. It is an easy 15 min walk from the California Ave Caltrain station.
A nice, large room, in a quiet area. The bed is very comfortable, and I slept well. Wifi worked fine. Having the private entrance is great. The bathroom is clean. All in all, it is exactly what I wanted.
Julie is a friendly and helpful hostess, but does not intrude.
I would stay again, if I come back to Palo Alto.
Julie's private space with lots of room worked beautifully for us. Julie is a gracious host, who makes you feel instantly comfortable. We highly recommend this AIRbnb opportunity.
Very lovely. This was my first AirBNB experience and I recommend it. I was in Palo Alto for business and although the room is not really set up for a business traveler (wifi didn't work...but I had my own hot spot which worked great, and there is not a "desk")...for me this was a delightful alternative to very expensive or yukky inexpensive hotels! The host loaned me a hair dryer and was VERY accommodating. No TV for morning news and no coffee pot for getting-dressed coffee...but really, I will stay here again. I recommend this as a terrific place to stay in Palo Alto!
Julie was a great, easygoing host. She made it simple for me to get in and out, no issues at all. I wasn't at the room much since I stayed there for a quick work trip, but when I was it was comfortable, quiet, private, and had all of the amenities I needed! I recommend it!
Julie was a great host; She made us feel at home and well cared for. The room was lovely and clean and we loved having the private entrance, forgot we were in a home and felt like we were just in our own retreat. Very good price for the experience!
My husband and I enjoyed our stay in this lovely quiet neighborhood in easy walking distance of Hoover Park, two drug stores, a Starbucks, a grocery store, and six different places to eat. The room itself was large and comfortable,and though the hostess was very friendly and helpful we appreciated the convenience of the private entrance.
Julie's Private Room was TERRIFIC!
With a separate entrance off the back patio, this is a perfect alternative to a hotel for a medium stay in Palo Alto. Julie's house is minutes from Stanford and I was able to drive in less than 5 minutes to campus. If you wanted to stay for longer, there is room for a bike on the patio and it is super-doable as a quick ride to Stanford! Julie was easy and gracious. The room is light and clean, with it's own bathroom and WAY AMPLE shelving if you're sticking around for longer than a day or two.
Julie seems to have set up the room for privacy, hers and yours. She is attentive, but has her own life in the attached house. This is the addition to the house. You don't share the house with Julie, but have your own space with a fridge and microwave- similar to a hotel room, but cozier!
I would stay again in a heartbeat if the room is open.
I have known Julie for several years now and have always enjoyed her company. She is a truly delightful personality -- wise, funny and dependable. You could not ask for a better hostess while staying in Palo Alto. She has created a room in her home for guests that is spacious and comfortable. She is one of the most nurturing people you will ever meet and she makes every effort sure her guests are very comfortable. You could do no better than to rent her guest room.
Julie and I met 20 years ago in Seattle and have been friends ever since. She's kind, generous, smart, funny and so very thoughtful. I've known her as a dedicated teacher and educator, stellar mother, caring doula, and amazing writer. I cannot recommend her strongly enough both as a person and a professional.
You couldn't find a nicer, sweeter person than Julie anywhere! She's warm, friendly, funny, and delightful. Her home is in a nice neighborhood where you will feel like part of the community rather than a tourist or an outsider. You should have no hesitation about booking this place with a great hostess like Julie!
I wasn't sure whether to list my relationship with Julie as "friend" or "colleague." We began in 2007 as colleagues, working together providing birth doula services to parents in the bay area. Since then, we've become friends. In her work, Julie is highly reliable and compassionate. As a friend, she's always willing to lend an ear or share a cup of tea. An all-around wonderful person to know, in any capacity.
I'm writing a reference for Julie as an honest, ethical, and all-round stand-up, decent person. I've know Julie for 12 years - ever since she was the doula for my first child. I was hugely impressed with her professionalism and we've remained friends ever since. We've even co-authored a book together (called 'Deliver!,' it helps birth partners become awesome supporters of the women they love as they go through labor). Julie herself is awesome, as you are sure to find out if you rent her room!
I was lucky enough to live at Julie's place for several months during the Summer and Fall of 2013. First off, the room is HUGE. Tons of space! While I was there I managed to fit a bed, TV, couch, desk, coffee table, a ton of boxes, and more with room to spare.
Second, the room is in a fantastic neighborhood. Super safe, no crime, pretty much all friendly families living on the block. Its also super close to a CVS, Safeway, and Starbucks as well, which came in handy.
The room was also super quiet. Its separated from the rest of the house by the laundry room and kitchen, so I never had any trouble with noise coming from the rest of the house. The house itself is on a dead end street so there's never any traffic, which also made it super quiet as well.
Overall I had an awesome experience living at Julie's place. She was super friendly, as were her kids who were both well behaved and polite. I'm not sure how AirBnB does ratings, but 5 out of 5 stars from me. Could not have been more satisfied. Thanks for the amazing room Julie!
