About this listing

Stonehenge is our wonderful community of people who make awesome things! Many of our residents are in their 20's and 30's, but we welcome people of all ages into our home. We are not all software engineers, but we share a common curiosity and sense of humor about this funny world, and many of us are highly startup-oriented.
Please spend some time with us, relaxing, drinking a beer, watching movies and playing video games, hacking on some chaos, or teaching us whatever interesting stuff you bring to the table.
Washer, dryer, laundry detergent, refrigerator, wifi, bicycle, sheets, pillows, extra blankets, full kitchen, bulk food (like rice), shampoo, conditioner, body wash, towels, and a community.
Interaction with Guests
Katy lives in the house. We spend a lot of time watching movies, making nonsense, or just staying up late talking. Some guests spent a lot of time with the community, but some pass through. We welcome everybody to find whatever level of interaction works for them.
There is a cute dive bar with karaoke every Thursday in stumble distance and two grocery stores (one fewer than 4 blocks away and expensive, one farther away and more affordable). A large park is at the end of the street where you can play football/soccer, and the local library is right at the end of the block.
We are located within easy biking distance of almost anything you could want: 1.7 miles to San Antonio Caltrain, 3 miles from Stanford, 2.3 miles from California Avenue Caltrain. The 35 bus departs from literally the end of the block and will take you directly to Stanford / the Palo Alto Train Station. We have bikes to loan to residents, but sometimes residents lend a hand keeping them in tip-top shape.
- Please be neat
- Put the room back to the way it was during the day so people can socialize
- No guests in the house that aren't cleared with the residents
- Be excellent to one another
One of the first things Katy said to me was "welcome home," and it didn't take very long for that to become a reality. Everyone was so incredibly friendly, and by the way people kept dropping in from all around the area, I could tell from the beginning that Stonehenge would be awesome. With so many people, you can't expect it not to be messy, but if messy == cozy for you, it's definitely a great place to stay!
I stayed at this place for a week. The host is very friendly and accommodating and there isn't anything missing. The social environment is great perk, there are always interesting people to talk to. The one downside is that there isn't much personal space so the place can be cramped and cluttered. Overall, I had a great experience.
I enjoyed my stay and got mostly what I expected from the listing as far as accommodation and house culture. What I didn't expect was my host Katy, who is truly one of those rare and wonderful people in the world. She welcomed me warmly, and it took less than a day to feel like I was at home. I felt comfortable coming and going as I pleased and using the shared spaces. I only stayed for 4 days and spent most of the time away for my travel business, but I still managed to hang out with the group a bit, go to a dinner party, have some early morning tea with Katy, and just slip right into the rhythm of things. It is unlike any other travel experience I have had to date.
The house is located in a nice little neighborhood and is close to a shopping center with food places and a grocery. There is also a beautiful, modern community center at the end of the street with a library, park, and cafe. It was a pleasant change of scenery to get some work done on the morning I had open during my stay.
I came into my summer at Stonehenge with some serious reservations. After all, who wouldn't be kind of terrified to live with 11 other people they didn't know? However, they were pretty much completely unfounded. Yeah, two bathrooms and one kitchen can sometimes make things awkward with so many roommates (though way less so than I expected), and having to sleep in a bunk room with three other people can sometimes lead to imperfect sleep, but these minor inconveniences were definitely offset by how much fun I had. Not only were all my roommates both responsible and fun, but there is also a cloud of people associated with Stonehenge who occasionally come visit to cook out, so it's never lonely. Next time I'm in the bay area, I'll definitely be back to visit!
Stonehenge is the right place if you're new in the area and you are looking for contact to (not only) tech people. If you need help with something, just ask for it. Short walk/bike distances to public transportation and grocery stores. I really enjoyed my stay there, met some interesting people and I'm leaving with an awesome impression of Silicon Valley.
Had a great time at the Stonehenge. Very friendly people and lots of activity there. If you're looking a bubbling environment that takes you back to college dorms, good chats and learning more about the valley, this is the place to be.
