Fantastic location, cool housemates and Sinjin was a good host. Place 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.
Katie's house was a nice and convenient place to post up after long days. Its denizens were friendly and helpful.
Awesome house! Perfect housemates! I met two colleagues here and become good friends! I attended a party with the host which is very interesting.
Fantastic short-term spot to stay! Clean, respectful, convenient, safe, and fun place to stay. The location is ideal. Initially I wasn't sure how difficult parking would be, but I didn't have any problems.
Very convenient to the train.
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.
Had a great time at Katie's. Sinjin is super helpful and helped make the stay absolutely painless.
The listing was exactly as described and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Several people rotated in and out during my two weeks and it was fantastic to get to meet other people from the area on my schedule. The bedroom itself was quiet and clean with ample space to store my belongings. I would fully recommend this listing to others looking for a place to crash.
I stayed in the house for 4 weeks. The location of the house in Mountain View is great. You can walk within 5 minutes to the Caltrain station and to different grocery stores (Walmart, Safeway, Trader Joe's). The neighborhood is nice and quite. One guy Sinjin who is living in the house too, operates it. The services (buying house food, doing the laundry, etc.) and the overall support of Sinjin is 10 times better than in every hotel I stayed. Overall I had a nice, convenient time in the house.
Katherine and John were an interesting couple indeed. I do hope they enjoyed the rest of their trip in Costa Rica.
Katherine was a great house guest. Very respectful and was easy going when we had an issue with the hot tub. I'd be happy to have her back!
