The Space

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 (email hidden)ose to 500 Startups, Y Combinator, Hacker Dojo and Stanford.

Accommodations: Three bedroom, 2.5 bathroom townhouse with free wifi and cable. This listing is for the master bedroom (king size bed, and own bathroom and shower). My townhouse is fully furnished. All guests will be given their own set of keys to come and go as they please. I provide clean towels and linens. There is a washer and dryer in the garage, and plenty of storage.

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

Who stays here: Entrepreneurs, visiting scholars, business professionals, students, interesting adults.

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

Check In
  • Very convenient to the train.

  • Katie was more than accommodating to me during my 4 month stay. I was in town interning for Tesla Motors. I had to find a place on short notice, and this house was perfect!

    The location is right on the edge of Palo Alto and Mountain View. It's about three miles away from Stanford and about two miles away from Castro St. in Mountain View, which is a pretty cool. Additionally, the house is within walking distance of San Antonio plaza, which is newly developed and very nice, including a Walmart, Trader Joe's, Safeway, two 24hr fitness gyms, and several good places to eat. If that's not enough, a Target is right across the street from that as well.

    This house is also located right on the San Antonio Caltrain station. That means you're one stop from downtown Mountain View, or two stops away from University Ave (right next to Stanford). Trips to San Francisco are also really convenient as well!

    The people who come through the house are always excellent. Everyone is very smart and entrepreneurial. I've made several good connections from just being in the house and networking with the guests who stop by. On the weekends, several of the house residents and I would even take trips to San Francisco, Katie's mansion in San Jose, or any of the other great locations near the Valley. I had a blast and would recommend it to anyone else.

  • The location is fantastic - close to the San Antonio shops and a brief walk to San Antonio Caltrain. The room is spacious, clean and the house is generally well maintained.

    Would stay again in the future here and would recommend it.

  • Staying at Katherine's place was a pleasant experience. Katherine was quick to respond to my mails and was very flexible when I needed to change my reservation dates. The location is great with stores close by and the Caltrain station on the same street. The house was clean and my room was spacious. The other people staying at the place were helpful and friendly, and the overall atmosphere was very welcoming.

  • Affordable , very well located (near grocery, shopping mall and public transit -- both train and bus), together with a very accommodating host, what else does one needs? I had a very nice stay, with friendly roommates.

  • Great house with a lot of very interesting people! If you're an entrepreneur and need a place to stay around Mountain View I very much recommend it!

    Definitely coming back here!

  • Katie is a wonderful host, the house is clean, conveniently located 5 mins away from Caltrain, Walmart, Safeway and Subway. The internet is fast and I got to know talented entrepreneurs for around the world.
