About this listing
The HackerHome Network
Whether you're new to the Valley, bored with your current housing or need a transient place... I would like to help. When you reserve with me, you'll have instant friends and be part of a network of 10+ homes in the Bay Are
Newly remodeled home with an open kitchen, living room and a huge backyard for BBQs.
2 full bathrooms
All utilities are included and free WIFI.
Clean linens/bedding are provided + a fresh towel.
Why would someone say light cooking? Home prepped meals really warms up the house and it's encouraged.
Interaction with Guests
It's a house full of people & different schedules. So please use ear plugs if necessary. If you're a light sleeper or can't sleep on a single mattress, this may not be the right place for you.
We are a very communal/respectful group and strive to provide space for everyone to work and hangout. Remember that work, musical instruments and books take precedence over the television.
This is downtown Millbrae! It's a super convenient location and only a half mile (or a 10 minute walk) to Millbrae Bart and Caltrain Station.
You're also only 1 block to downtown Millbrae where many restaurants close late, kinkos business center, UPS store, Peet's coffee, Safeway grocery store and many restaurants.
Walk 10 minutes to Millbrae Caltrain and Bart Station.
This house is less than 3km from SFO. Take an Uber and you'll be here in less than 10 minutes from the San Francisco Airport.
Other Things to Note
More than one suitcase? Consult with me prior to making your reservation.
Respectful Housing for Women
Females in a separate room. If you'd like to stay in the girls' room, please check with me on availability before reserving. If you don't have a preference, then just make your reservation.
The Airbnb cleaning fee is to make sure you have a clean bed upon arrival and not to clean up after you. All spaces are shared, so please be mindful of picking up after yourself. If you're a longer term guest, remember to use one bath towel and wash it with your own load of laundry.
Best Way to Reach Me
1. Complete your Airbnb profile with an ID/Passport and connect your social networks.
2. One line about your purpose of visit.
3. Let me know your duration of stay and estimated time of arrival on your check in date.
Clean your dishes right away
Smoke only in the backyard
If you must invite an associate/friend over, consult with me first
Be conscientious of morning bathroom usage
Do not snooze your alarm
Use earphones, not speakers - unless it's a family event
We Prefer That You
be respectful of the space and to fellow housemates
clean up after yourself by making your bed and washing your dishes
have an optimistic outlook and laugh a lot =D
Everything! The place was clean, awesome. Vic is just such a chill guy. I'm calling this place again when I come back. I wish I could've stayed longer!
Although I didn't see Vic in person, he was very easy to communicate with. With any questions he is very prompt in getting back to you, and he is very informative in terms of advice of the area. Millbrae is a very nice suburb, and in between house facilities and the neighborhood you have everything you need. The local shopping strip is pretty much on the next block with heaps of grocery stores, Walgreens, Safeway, Starbucks etc...and the library is also down the road. The location is also very close to the airport/BART and is affordable (hence how I ended up there).
The room itself is a dorm you share with 5 others, but the people are really nice and the place is secure. The rooms are also single-sex.
Vic's place is a very communal and friendly place and I had a great time meeting new people and hearing their stories!
Had a great time, really great place with amazing people and a fantastic location. Good if you want to travel to SF & to Palo Alto!
Will book again!
Vic was very responsive with his messages/texts and his house was great. It was modern, had a community of "hackers" and in an excellent location -- five minute walk to Trader Joe's, Safeway, restaurants and shops and a ten minute walk to the CalTrain or Bart. I recommend this place.
Un logement collectif bien conçu, bien organisé et confortable à 8 minutes à pied du Calltrain. Petit mot d'accueil, serviettes, machine à laver, Wifi... tout le nécessaire est à disposition pour un tarif raisonnable pour le secteur. Une bonne expérience.
Awesome! This place felt like home and Vic was always available, super helpful and he even dropped in to see if we needed anything.
We also enjoyed the little secret snack deliveries on our doorstep each week.
Loved the house, nice furniture & floorboards - very modern.
Thanks Vic! If I get to San Francisco again this will be home again :)
The apartment is amazing. Vic responds quickly to my message and has clean maid here frequently. You can find anything you want here: kitchen full of all kinds of food and alliance, living room with magazines and tv, well-selected bath room products, a printer and, of course, fun friends from Vic's group! Additionally, the Millbrae neighborhood is one of the best in Bay Area. I will choose here next time i visit the Bay Area. Thank you Vic!
