The Space

(Description updated on 4/8/14)

Location, location, location!

Welcome to downtown Mountain View. We're located 1 block from Castro St. which is filled with restaurants, pubs, and coffee shops. Walking distance to Caltrain for trips into SF and convenient to many locations in the Peninsula.

We're brothers (one professional, the other a PhD student) who own a great 2BD/2BA house that was built in 1925. We have a nice living room with a brand new sleeper sofa that contains a queen size pull-out air mattress (no more sleeping on the floor). You'll have exclusive use of this living room which has great natural light, a sofa, and an authentic Eames lounger to sit and relax in. All new dual-pane windows keep the temperature comfortable and block out noise. Our home is a great choice for business travelers visiting the Bay Area or for out of town vacationers who are looking for a quiet, central location to spend a few days.

The house has wood floors, full dining room, remodeled kitchen (including a Viking range), fireplace, huge front yard and private back patio. Washer and dryer, too. Plenty of street parking in an ideal location. Close proximity to great running/biking trails. We can definitely provide restaurant recommendations and give you a taste of the area, too. If you're nice, we might even make you cocktails =)

Visiting Microsoft, (website hidden), Y Combinator or 500 Startups? We are very close. And we don't require equity to stay here...

Peninsula hotels suck. Travel like a human and stay with us.

No commercial inquiries, please.

Guest Access

Feel free to use the dining room for eating or working, the kitchen, the laundry, and either of the two bathrooms. Outside table and chairs, along with an adirondack chair on the front porch which is great for reading.

Getting around

Located about 1/2 mile from the CalTrain and light rail stations, walking distance to buses on El Camino, and easily accessible by taxi/Uber/Lyft.

We request bookings at least 24 hours prior to arrival, preferably earlier so we have time to set up the room for you.

  • This house is very neat and clean, very much a simplistic style, which we love very much. Just one block to downtown Mountain View. We walk over to the Irish bar at downtown to watch World Cup games, which is wonderful. Lots of restaurants ranging from Chinese to Greek to fusion food, lot of coffee houses, and book shops. It is a wonderful experience. We will be back again.

  • Aaron and his place were perfect - Aaron is a wonderful host and I felt completely welcome in his home. The accommodations were exactly what I was looking for - I had more than enough privacy and access to a wonderful kitchen, living room, dinning room and front porch....

    I highly recommend Aaron's home!
