1 BR in a 2BR apartment located in the heart of College Terrace, a charming and quiet neighborhood next to Stanford University. Onsite parking, large deck overlooking a park, laundry in the building, internet. Fully stocked kitchen.

The space

Really homey, sunny apartment in a great location, close to California Avenue and also to Stanford's campus. The apartment has lots of common space that is warm during the day, and a lovely patio to relax on.

Guest access

Guests will have access to one of the bedrooms in a two bedroom apartment. The bedroom is small but sunny, with a small table and a full bed.

Guests will share the apartment with my roommate, a clean and very nice post-doc from Stanford. There is a shared bathroom.

There is also a bathroom, a sunny living room, dining area and a fully stocked kitchen.

The wardrobes will be emptied out for you. The apartment gets lots of sun during the day and is a comfortable place to work.

Also, with 5 business days notice, the apartment will be professionally cleaned.

Interaction with guests

I only put my apartment on airbnb when I am away, and therefore unfortunately, I will not be able to interact with guests. I always make sure to communicate with guests beforehand to see what they need, and try to accommodate special requests. I also provide detailed directions to my place, as well as information on how to obtain the key, wifi password etc.

Guests should feel free to approach my roommate with any questions or concerns that they might have.

If you want recommendations for things to do, or anything else, please ask me before hand and I can provide you with the information you need.

Emilys apartment is light and spacious. For me the location was perfect, near California avenue and within a 10 minute walk from the station. Her roommate is helpful and made sure there was room for my stuff in the fridge and freezer. Communication with Emily was clear and informative. I was very happy staying there.

Emily's place is within 15min to Stanford. It's located in a very safe neighborhood. Parking on the street there is easy, unlike in the direct vicinity of Stanford campus, and the Emily has a covered parking spot. The apartment overall is maintained well, the bathroom and kitchen, although a bit dated, are meticulously clean. The living room is large. However the bedroom is not big, about 200/sqft, enough for one person but tight for two. Also not listed until you get the invoice (not the fault of Emily but Airbnb's), is the Palo Alto local tax that comes to $16 a day for this room. Emily's rate is very reasonable at $90, however the taxes and other fees add quickly to the average of $140/day for our 4-day stay. WIFI works well, and the place is a short walk to Starbucks and other shops on El Camino Real. I would recommend it, esp. to those who visits there w/o a car and wants easy access to the campus.

Emily was very responsive and accommodating of my travel schedule. The place was in a nice, quiet neighborhood basically across the street from Stanford's campus. Very spacious and sunny, and having the kitchen to use was nice as well.

Perfect location just by Stanford in very quiet area. I booked with very short notice - so find it hard to blame Emily for not leaving the room very clean, but must mention that it really wasn't. More like moving straight into somebody's life (or rather taking her place). Everything worked without any problem though and the (male) grad student who also lives in the flat was very nice and friendly.

Great experience! Emily was super communicative, gave me a ton of good tips for things to do in the area, and the apartment was exactly as described. Would stay again!
