Interaction with guests

We are building a communal/respectful group and strive to provide a safe and peaceful space for everyone to work and hangout. Work, conversation, fun, music and books take precedence over television - which is why we don't even have a television. Some guests prefer to concentrate on their work and this is welcome as well.

Many guests want more one-on-one time with the host than others and this is welcome as well - if this is your case, don't hesitate to reach out to me for one-on-one time. From local information about finding a new place to live, to academics, entrepreneurs, investors, customers, developers, consultants, vendors, suppliers... etc - I have many ways to connect you with many contacts and methods of finding your way in the high-tech industry, just reach out to me via call/text or email to set up a time while you're around and let's see what we can do.

House Rules

Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
Not safe or suitable for children (0-12 years)
Check in is anytime after 4PM

• Common courtesy, consideration for others and a good sense of humor are always a good idea.

• Be very mindful of the check-in time (4:00 pm) and check-out time (11:00 am). It is important for us to adhere to these times in order to have enough time to prepare the room for you and the next guest. Unfortunately we cannot support early check-in or late check-out for this room. However, you can stay in the common areas in the meantime. If you need to drop off or store your bags, you can place them in the garage.

• Quiet hours Sunday through Thursday are between 10:45 pm and 8:00 am for your consideration as well as other housemates. Friday and Saturday quiet hours start at 12:00 am. Please no loud music or calls that might disturb others during this time and be very considerate of excessive noise in the common areas.

• Coordinate with other housemates for the use of the kitchen and clean your dishes right away. Be sure to pick up after yourself throughout the home and avoid leave personal items in the common areas.

• Smoking is only allowed in the designated smoking area. Smoking is not allowed at the street, in the front yard, or anywhere inside the home. Smoking is only allowed in the designated smoking area at the side of the house or in the back yard.

• If you park in the street, do not double park. This means make sure to provide efficient space for neighbors to park and do not park in front of illegal zones (driveways, fire hydrants, etc…)

• Please do not bother neighbors in the neighborhood and be sure to prevent any activity that would bother neighbors at all costs. In general, please avoid approaching neighbors all together.

• Please avoid using shared bathrooms for more than 20 consecutive minutes, especially during morning hours.

• Please use only the set of bed linens and bath towel(s) that were provided to you at check-in. If you want a set of clean linens/towels, we instead ask that you wash the ones that were already provided to you.

• No parties.

• Please take shoes off when entering the property.

• If you must invite over an associate/friend, please consult with us.

• By agreeing to these house rules you also agree to be fully responsible for any mail or packages delivered to the home and do not hold us liable for any lost or stolen packages.

• Upon reserving the unit, you will receive a "House Manual". It is required to read this manual.

Despite the serious tone of these house rules, you'll find the home to be pretty darn mellow and a very enjoyable place to be.

Good place to stay overall. Not much to do in the immediate neighborhood except for a very good climbing gym 5 min bike ride away. Nearest good grocery store is a 10 min drive, but there is an Indian specialty grocery store around the corner (good produce, very narrow selection otherwise). Hard neighborhood to live in without a car. Kitchen was good; I was able to cook dinner almost every night without problem for the entire summer. However, the dishwasher did not work for the entire time I was there, and the oven had stopped working by the end of my stay. Upgrading the kitchen would go a long way towards improving the place :) VERY expensive, somewhat standard for the bay area but I'm sure you could find a better deal if you look around more. The room was good. Clean, spacious enough, and a nice closet.

Response from Jazen:
We appreciate feedback and would like to respond to this. There's an amazing grocery store just around the corner four minutes walk away along with several great restaurants. We encourage the prospective guest to check out the photos of our listings for the surrounding areas we've posted. As for price, there are no hidden fees or additional charges, we are very clear about the price of your stay up front before you reserve so that there are no surprises. We encourage the prospective guest to shop around because they usually find our units to be priced quite competitively in the market. It's hard to make sense as to why Charles is indicating issues about the price since he didn't have to agree to it from the beginning. About location, this is a nice location, people find this to be a very peaceful neighborhood, we also have other locations and we encourage guests to pick the location that best suites them and their work commute. We actually don't advertise a dishwasher as an amenity in this listing (please read amenities), we prefer guests to not use the dish washer due to issues with dish washing logistics. We've fixed the stove, just let us know if there's anything that needs to be fixed and we're on top of it. I noticed Charles left five stars in his review but his words didn't seem to reflect that, so I figured it would be good to respond. We strive to be the absolute best host in the area so please let us know if you have any questions or if you need anything! Respectfully, Jazen.

Very clean, just as described. You could hear other people staying in the house through the walls, but everybody abided to the house quiet hours so it wasn't an issue.

The description is accurate. The house has several bedrooms of decent size. Bathroom and kitchen were clean and well-equipped. I had a very pleasant stay.
