Housing near Palo Alto?

Hey Guys,

My cousin recently got accepted to Stanford and is looking for housing around Palo Alto. Can someone who knows the area recommend some good places to live?

She's looking for a place that's safe, relatively affordable (1 bedroom < $1,500 per month), and not too far from campus. I've never been up there, but figured someone on here might know the area better.

Thanks a lot!
