OK guys, this is your ideal starting situation for plugging in to Silicon Valley - Come here and stay for anywhere from a few nights to a week while you zip around locally finding long term accommodation in the 'Valley, check out all those fun co-op living situations, etc.
You're staying in the living room on a (nice!) queen-sized air mattress with sheets. Full bathroom on shared basis with one dude (me!). As the room adjoins to the kitchen, expect a more communal atmosphere than anything else. Washer and dryer (coin-operated) on-site, just have your own towel + toiletries and you're good to go.
Located right in the center of Mountain View, near the famous headquarters of (website hidden). Yes, you could even walk there (about 20 mins) from here if you wanted to. And excellent grocery shopping and eats less than 10 minutes walk away. You also have dedicated parking too, and in case you're without car, I'm generous with rides around the vicinity too, so pickup / dropoff at nearby Caltrain stations is no problem.
Happy exchanging stories and perspectives, and of course if you just want to focus on your own stuff that's excellent too.
In me as your short-term roommate, you've got a once and, heck, probably future tech entrepreneur, working full time nearby for a major Chinese Internet infrastructure company expanding abroad. Kind of a mixed/confused culture guy, you'll probably catch me at night applying Chinese language skills in work calls to Beijing while marinating tofu in some new masala sauce from the local Little India cash'n'carry.
Great host, extremely friendly and has a nice clean simple pad to lay your head. Good thoughts on sales and empathy as well.
I was barely there because I was working most of the time, but Rick was very helpful and made sure that I had a comfortable stay.
I was in town for a robotics conference and let Rick know that I wanted to stay the same day. He was a gracious host who got the room ready in time for me on short notice. The room was clean, Rick has a fascinating guy to talk with. Great experience--I would recommend him and his room to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in Mountain View.
The place was clean, tidy and functional. Rick is a serious and welcoming guy, a great host.
Rick was great to collaborate with as one of our new team members settled into the South Bay! Very nice place to stay and we appreciated the shared interest in Entrepreneurial Endeavours!
Rick is a very nice gentleman. He is very polite, nice and easy to communicate. He will try every means to make your stay comfortable, giving you all kinds of possible convenience upon your request. Moreover, he is a great guy with wisdom and erudition that make the talks between you and him a fantastic enjoyment.
The property located in a peaceful and tranquil community. There is a small patio outside the room, providing a pleasant scenery.
Great stay. Very accommodating host.
