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 Area.
Newly built custom home with an open kitchen and living room.
4 bedrooms - 1 private room and 3 shared rooms
3 full bathrooms
All utilities are included and the WIFI is fast!
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.
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 the suburbs of San Mateo, but it's a 5 minute walk to restaurants, shopping and grocery stores.
Only a 10-15 minute walk to San Mateo Caltrain and downtown San Mateo.
Too tired to walk? We have bikes you can use that will swiftly get you places fast!
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.

Vic is a great host. He makes sure you have everything you need and tries to make the house as comfortable as possible for everyone. As long as you know what you're expecting, which you should given that Vic spells it out for you, it's a great place to stay as everyone is very friendly. Thanks Vic!
We have a great little community at the hacker home. Every is respectful and friendly. People are working hard and trying to relax at the house, everyone eats and chills in the evenings, it's a good atmosphere.
Vic is a great host, even though he was not around, he made sure everything is arranged and taken care of. He promptly replies to messages and makes sure his guests are feeling comfortable.
The place was well-organized and clean. It was interesting to meet people working on different things.
Overall, I had a very good experience and I highly recommend Vic.
I had a great stay here. I first tried this house out with a one-week stay, and immediately re-upped for the rest of my time in the peninsula. I was here for six weeks while working at a short-term contract job.
Vic's a really enthusiastic, energetic guy -- it's always fun to talk to him. The housemates were excellent. It's a great place for someone interested in the tech scene who's temporarily staying in the area.
