The Space

Newly built custom home with an open kitchen and living room.

4 bedrooms - 1 private room and 3 shared rooms
3 full bathrooms

Guest Access

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.

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.

The Neighborhood

This is the suburbs of San Mateo, but it's a 5 minute walk to restaurants, shopping and grocery stores.

Getting around

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!

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.

Cleaning
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.

3. Let me know your duration of stay and estimated time of arrival on your check in date.

  • I had a great time staying. Met some cool people while there. Was very surprised by how fresh and clean the place was. Vic provides earplugs, so noise is never a problem. Would definitely stay again when I need a temporary accommodation.

  • Great place. New house. Great guys staying there. Ideal if you're a startup. Will stay again.

  • Vic was honestly amazing. The house is really awesome, the people were awesome and Vic really looks after his guests. I would give him 10 stars out of 5 if I could. I will definitely be staying in his hackerhomes again if I ever need a place to crash. It is great for staying a week or great for staying 3 months like I did. I highly recommend Vic.

  • I stayed at this place for the first week of a new job, while I searched for more permanent accommodations. I never had any trouble with getting enough sleep. I found the other guests very respectful.

    I had fun geeking out with everybody. In one late-night conversation, I got a gnarly Git problem worked out by a panel of four roomies. Can't get THAT just anywhere. It was an interesting crowd there. There was a French guy, a Brazilian guy, and people from all over the US there for the Maker Faire.
