Carina's place is in a quiet neighborhood about 25 minutes walking from the Stanford campus. The bedroom was clean and exactly as pictured. Carina was kind to let me have limited use of her kitchen for preparation of breakfast and some dinners.
Had a really nice stay at Carina's place. Had booked it because I had business to do in Palo Alto and Mountain View and didn't want to have to rely on a car and the location was great for that - a quiet neighbourhood in walking distance to downtown Palo Alto and the Caltrain station, so I could easily get around on foot and by public transportation. The room was just as nice as it looks on the picture and I slept like a baby on that comfy mattress. Bathroom was shared, which worked out well for me, because the other guest was on a different schedule than I was. Carina was very welcoming, gave me several tips on where to go for dinner and her son bakes some really yummy cookies. Would definitely consider staying at Carina's place again, next time I'm in the area.
I moved to Palo Alto and couldn't find a respectable space and then I was lucky enough to find Carina. She was such a great person to stay with. She was great company to talk to, opened her home to me. This was a great space and I feel so happy to have had the chance to meet her and hope anyone who wants to visit Palo Alto gets to meet her too.
Carina was such a lovely host! Her home and family were so welcoming. It was a great trip. Her son makes amazing peanut butter cookies.
Carina was quick to respond to my last-minute nest request, and was overtly welcoming. She was also super helpful with pointing out local beacon points, and then some!
I had an extremely positive stay! The room is cozy, clean, private and pleasant. Thanks, Carina!
Had a superb time staying in Carina's lovely Garden room. It's very private, with it's own entrance. The bank of windows and window seat gives the room an open and luxurious feeling. Carina was so welcoming, and kind, interested and interesting, and relaxed. She made me feel extremely welcome. I really liked returning to her house: the little white picket gate, walking up the path through a festive drought-resistant garden, petting her sweet dog, Julie and grabbing one of her son's home made peanut butter cookies. All made me feel so cozy...And the location is perfect! I walked easily to both downtown and Town and Country/Stanford University; rarely used my rental car. I would definitely recommend the room, the house, and Carina's calm and steady presence to anyone looking for a room to rent. I'll be back for sure!
Carina's house felt like the getaway I needed. I was at work in the day and then in the night I felt like was on a vacation far far away in a peaceful abode.
Thanks for an awesome room and those serious cookies!
Me he sentido como en casa! He estado hospedada durante un mes y todo ha sido genial! Carina me ha hecho sentir como si estuviera en casa. cuando llegue un vecino me fue a buscar al aeropuerto y ya en casa Carina me explico todo lo necesario. También la comunicación con ella es perfecta, contesta muy rápido a los mensajes. La casa esta bien situada, cerca del centro de palo alto donde están las tiendas y restaurantes, cerca del caltrain, y buen situada para acceder a Standford. Carina es artista la casa es preciosa, decorada de forma muy acogedora, en el jardín también tiene estancias para poder disfrutar del buen clima de california. La casa es mejor que en las fotos! Yo me aloje en cozy room pero el resto de las habitaciones que tiene para hospedar son geniales. Compartí baño con el huésped que dormía en la otra habitación alquilada de la planta superior pero no coincidía apenas con ellos y también podía usar el otro baño de arriba o el de abajo. Cambian las sabanas y toallas y hay limpieza general una vez a la semana y todo esta muy limpio. En la cocina hay una zona reservada para los huéspedes con una maquina para hacerte café, fruta dulces riquísimos que hace el pequeño Chef de la casa. También en el frigorífico hay una zona reservada pra dejar las cosas que quieras. Tampoco Carina tiene inconveniente para prestar sus utensilios para cocinar. Carina es encantadora, no solo ha compartido su casa conmigo, mucho más, ha estado pendiente para ayudarme en todo lo que necesitase. Muchas gracias! Sin duda volvería a hospedarme con Carina!
The room looked just like the photo and completely met my needs. Carina was a gracious and helpful host. I would gladly stay here again and recommend this to others.
Carina and her friend were very pleasant and thoughtful guests, and we enjoyed having them. We would be happy to host them again!
Carina is a good friend who has graciously hosted us on many occasions. Her house is lovely, her dog is adorable, her kids are sweet (we have babysat them), and the neighborhood is charming. We can highly recommend a visit to Palo Alto and staying at Carina's home.
