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.
This is the original HackerHome and where all the magic started! Located in a quiet residential area, but a short walk to restaurants and grocery stores on El Camino. Spacious ranch style house with music instruments, work out equipment and swimming pool.
4 bedrooms - 2 private rooms and 2 shared rooms
2 full bathrooms
Pool with spa - pool is warmer during the summer - heated via solar panels
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.
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.
Located in the suburbs, but only a 10 minute walk to awesome restaurants, groceries & banks on El Camino.
1.8 miles to Nvidia
2.3 miles to Lawrence Caltrain Station
3.3 miles to Plug & Play Sunnyvale
6.5 miles from San Jose Airport
Too tired to walk? We have bikes you can use that will swiftly get you places fast!
4.5 mile bike ride along the San Tomas Aquino Creek Trail to Hyatt Regency & Santa Clara Convention Center or bus 57 northbound will take you directly to the convention center (13 stops and about 20 minutes). $2 each way or $6 for a day pass. Board at the corner of Bowers Avenue and Warburton Avenue.
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.
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.

2. One line about your purpose of visit.
3. Let me know your duration of stay and estimated time of arrival on your check in date.
I have a lot to say about Vic and the HackerHome community.. but not enough space or words to explain how awesome this group of people truly are. Awesome, comfortable, at home describes the vibe and culture created by Vic and Sarah. You don't have to worry about anything, all the friendship and resources are provided with sincerity. I have truly made at least 10 life long friends in a weeks time staying at HH.
There is a reason HH has such high rankings and its not fake, you have to experience the hospitality for yourself. I wouldn't usually think of an open living arrangement but Vic has created something very special. Everyone is respectful and it just works with not one negative experience to speak of.
Great atmosphere, keep up the great job you guys and I'm Hacker Home for life...lol
Vic, Sarah, and the Gang there are awesome. I'm truly happy to have met such wonderful professionals. Large dinners are the norm almost every night and great company. After a long day of exploring the surroundings or visiting friends, i would come home and instantly feel like i was in a relaxing environment. The bunks are comfortable and everyone is respectful of your stuff. I felt like i was part of a family throughout my stay, feeling cared for, taken care of, and comfortable. Vic is a great host. Sarah is a great cook. And everyone you meet there adds a little more character to the location. Cal train was very accessible as i went up tot he city a lot, about 15 minutes jogging. There are also great running routes off of Monroe(Thanks Vic!) free of cars. Walking distance to El Camino Real, where great restaurants are located if you like Korean food, ramen, or great coffee, (Chromatic). Overall, Vic's place is perfect if you want a location to just hang out and relax. There is pull-up bar that is actually very conveniently placed outside by the pool. Great place, can't wait to head back to California to stay there again!!!!
Vic's the most accommodating guy I've ever met; he'll go out of his way to make sure you have everything you need. The house feels like a big family. Very easy to make friends here and hang out or go out, or just do your own thing or get some work done; it's pretty chill.
As soon as I came in through the door at the Santa Clara Hacker (email hidden) after a 20-hour journey from across the Atlantic, I felt right at home. Everybody greeted me and asked me if I needed anything while and it immediately felt like I was back home, even though I was 5000 miles away.
Everyone in the house was nice and the house itself had everything that was needed. (Free cereal yaay!)
This is THE place to stay at in Silicon Valley. I think it's better than a five-star hotel because here you get to meet new people that are really nice to you!
First trip to the US, first time on Airbnb and it was great. Vic and his home was awesome and I would definitely recommend it to anyone considering a trip to the bay area.
Great place to stay in Santa Clara. HackerHome is awesome and roommates are very friendly.
Vic is an amazing host and also the people at HackerHome are great! My rating: I extended my stay for another 2 weeks :)
Vic was awesome. He was a great host. He really encourages all the roommates to hang out and go eat together. I would recommend any of his properties. The house is kept cleaned and in order. Always, something happening from work to poker to playing with ELECTRONICS.
A+. Would rent again.
Vic is working hard and succeeding at building a family-style environment for travelling hackers. Reminds me of the (website hidden) house in that movie The Social Network. I came for a Python conference and there were many international travelers here for the same reason. Lots of laptops out around the dinner table, people talking about things they were building, made me really motivated! Sleeping accommodations are hostel-style bunk beds, the house was full and a little crowded, but that's part of the fun.
