Mei Lin was a fantastic host who went above and beyond to deliver an exceptional experience. The room and amenities fit my needs and the location was very convenient. I would be honored if i could be a guest again at her place.
Mei Lin was a gracious host with a lovely home situated in the perfect location for any visitor to Palo Alto. Easy walking distance to shops, Caltrain, Stanford, University Ave., etc. I'd recommend it for anyone traveling to the area!
Thank you for your kind review - your feedback is also very very helpful and I am really grateful for you taking the time and making the effort to let me know. Your good articulation of the situation will help all future guests and I'm happy to know about this so I can do something about it.
Meilin was the perfect host during my stay in Palo Alto. Her place was conveniently located in a very beautiful and quiet neighborhood, vey close to Hewlett & Packard's garage! The room was excellent, with very confortable twin beds, and a little desk which I used quite a lot to finish a research project. The bathroom was super clean. Also, I had the opportunity of using the washing machine, which is a plus.
I enjoyed my everyday strolls through Emerson St to get to the Caltrain Station where I took the Marguerite Bus to Stanford. In Emerson St you will find lots of shops and restaurants, and the Whole Foods is conveniently located a couple of blocks from Meilin's place.
If I ever come back to Stanford for work, I'll definitely stay again with Meilin! :-)
Mei Lin was very helpful over booking an extra person. She made arrangements (which worked!) to receive us as she wasn't present herself. Their home was in a quiet neighbourhood, but was easily walkable to the university and to a local diner for breakfast and lots of nice restaurants. There was access to a washer (with detergent) and dryer, and there was a microwave if one wanted. It was all very clean.
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for mentioning all these nice and true things about our Airbnb - we can't take credit for making sure all these things are nearby, but we do enjoy making sure our guests have access to conveniences that will make their stay easier and more enjoyable
The host met me, showed me around, gave me keys, and introduced me to others present in the AirBnB. There was a period of about one hour, when no one was home. So I went to dinner, came back, and the host was present.
David and I tried mightily hard to communicate with each other as I tried to find out when he might arrive - I accept full responsibility for not communicating more than 1 day ahead of time to know when he might arrive. I am learning from this experience and I appreciate David's kind feedback and understanding that I had hoped to communicate via email and txt message but all of those attempts sadly failed to establish communication before he arrived.
I booked for my parents and they enjoyed their stay. The room is clean, lovely and comfortable, they were able to rest well at nights. Mei Lin and Ross are excellent hosts, they invited my parents to use the kitchen and visit their gorgeous garden. The location is also great, a lot of nice places in walking distance.
I had a great experience staying at Mei's place. The room was small but comfortable, there were clean towels, bed sheets and a bathrobe. Mei was really nice and helped me move my luggage on my last day of the stay. Overall a great place to stay!
