I spent about 3 months here while attending a fellowship in Palo Alto. Al was really helpful and very fast to respond to messages. The room was clean and comfortable and included an inhouse washer/dryer. The place itself is located in a pretty quiet neighborhood. I would recommend having a car if you have to commute - there is off street parking on a driveway.

Response from Al:
Good luck with your post fellowship endeavors! It was great having you stay and your neural network algo advice was really helpful! Look forward to staying in touch.

For me the location was very important and a cozy place for my dog; I got the best of both. My dog took an instant liking to Al and got really comfortable in and around the home :). Al is a great person, extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area with great recommendations. He's constantly making updates to his home and adding new feature. I really enjoyed my stay and the atmosphere. I will highly recommend Al's place to everyone visiting this area!

I was staying at Al's place for 3 months, and enjoyed it a lot. The house is a bit old, but in a very good state, and Al is constantly improving it: he completely renovated the front yard within the time that I stayed. it's also not that far from the Stanford campus, I was biking pretty much every day, sometimes it can be faster the driving with the traffic in Palo Alto. Al himself is a wonderful host, very open-minded guy and gave me lots of advice in what to see around/where to eat etc. I will miss our rare but meaningful political conversations :)

I had an amazing time at Al's place, and hopefully will be back soon. As soon as I arrived Al showed me around and was super helpful in getting me settled in and get integrated. The neighborhood is great, with lovely, warm, lively people. The Ravenswood Preserve is one minute away and lovely for long runs and walks. Easy access to University Avenue and Stanford campus but also 101 North and South.
