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 Area.
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.

Overall I had a very good experience staying at Vic's place. I needed a place for a few nights while working out of SFO and it worked out great. It's location was within 10 minutes walk of the Millbrae BART station and a very nice location I found to go for a run during my off times. I had a few questions regarding my stay and my experience was that Vic always responded in a very timely manner. That was a plus! The house was also clean and then beds were comfortable.
Vic is an entrepreneur himself and know exactly how a hacker home should be. Stayed here for over a month and loved it. Location is awesome, 5-7 minutes walk from BART and Caltrain, house is huge with plenty of space where you can work comfortably (feels like a co-working space sometimes). I will highly recommend this place to any entrepreneur or just about anyone (most of the people I met here were startup entrepreneurs/hackers) and appreciate the hospitality and care Vic showed during my stay here.
I really enjoyed the place. I was out for Makerfaire 2013, and was hoping to stay near the area. I did a quick search on Airbnb and HackerHome popped up. I thought wow this is where I should stay. I met several wonderful people, and many were building Makerspaces like me. We had some great conversations, and made profesional connections from the experience.
