The Space

Bunkbed Room

Your home away from home.

Overview: Wake up in the morning with free breakfast and coffee. Enjoy ample work space with high speed internet. Relax in the hot tub, or swim a few laps in the pool. Conveniently located within 1/4th mile to Caltrain and Stanford Shuttle. Bikes on property to sign out. I have a cheaper rate because I believe in bootstrapping and want to create an environment of motivated, talented, successful individuals.

Location: My townhouse is located in Mountain View. My apartment is less than a five minute walk to Caltrain and the Stanford Shuttle. Restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores, and bars are within walking distance. The area is very safe and can be walkable at night. Close to 500 Startups, Y Combinator, Hacker Dojo and Stanford.

Accommodations: Three bedroom, 2.5 bathroom townhouse with free wifi and cable. One of the bedrooms has two bunkbeds, and the other bedroom has three twin beds. My townhouse is fully furnished. I provide clean towels and linens. There is a washer and dryer in the garage, and plenty of storage. The garage has spacious workspace, and a stationary bike with a computer attached - what could be better than surfing the web while getting a workout.

The complex: Two swimming pools, one hot tub, beautiful lavish gardens and ample parking on the complex.

The Events: All guests will be cordially invited to conferences, dinner parties, social events and gatherings.

Who stays here: Entrepreneurs, visiting scholars, business professionals, students, interesting adults. Every Sunday Katie will make dinner or have a bbq.

We expect all guests to respect each other, each other's property and themselves.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Fantastic location, cool housemates and Sinjin (email hidden)ace was clean enough. Not everything was as advertised however, as we were not allowed pool/hot tub access, AC was broken (and showed no sign of being fixed in the 2 weeks I was there), internet was flaky, and this place was in a large townhouse complex and neighbours would complain at the slightest audible conversation. Overall a good stay though.

  • Had a great time staying at Katie's house. As promised in the posting, she hosted a networking event on Sunday, and Sinjin, who runs the house in Katie's absence, was a great and helpful host. Cereal was well in stock, and the house was clean (not OCD spotless, but livably clean) and organized. Met a lot of cool people during my stay there, and definitely will be keeping in touch with them!

    For those with rental cars, there was ample parking inside and outside the community. If you're intimidated by the "Towing Enforced" signs in the community, it is very easy to find parallel parking on the street. I came home late (like midnight-ish) a few times and had no problems finding street parking.

  • Awesome house! Perfect housemates! I met two colleagues here and become good friends! I attended a party with the host which is very interesting.

  • I was only there for one night, but chose for this apartment as I am a tech entrepreneur myself, so a 'startup' house was perfect. While I didn't got to meet Katie, I did meet some of her flatmates and we had a good chat! The house provides a good stay, so do the beds.

  • Katie's house is great. Clean, and in a safe hood. Right near the Caltrain. This was my first airBnb experience. At first I was a little worried since I was traveling alone, but there was nothing to worry about. Good times. Nice place, friendly people.

  • She took me in on short notice and was very accommodating to me. Everything was as advertised, simple, clean and what I needed.
