Help with short term rental in San Francisco?


in San Francisco, United States by @cs340 | 6yr  | 3 comments

Iโ€™ve been looking for a short term rental for over a month in SF. My expected arrival date is this week and I have nothing, thinking about just going somewhere else. I had three rentals from CL that fell apart right when I was about to book them.

It seems most people are using airbnb and the monthly rates are really inflated, You canโ€™t find a studio with a monthly rate under 3.5k, while the same exact listing is going for 2600 on CL.

Does anyone have any recommendations on where to look for rentals?

Have you looked into residential hotels?
Thatโ€™s what I always used in SF in my backpacking days and theyโ€™re probably still the quick and affordable option.
Private room + usually having to share a shower with half the floor.
Iโ€™d avoid the Mission District though. Eck.

I always use Craigslist for SF accommodation & have never had trouble - mind you, I was only looking for a room.

Is a studio/private place absolutely essential? I was just looking yesterday as I plan my next trip back there & you can easily get rooms in the Mission (close to Bart & Valencia st) for $1000 p/m.

Iโ€™ve also only sorted places at the last minute so I wouldnโ€™t worry about the timing so much. Iโ€™d get an AirBnb for a couple of nights when you arrive so you can actually see the longer-term places - itโ€™s easier to manage when youโ€™re actually meeting the people vs just emailing.

As youโ€™ve found, the housing market in SF is pretty insane right now. That being said, a โ€œhacker houseโ€ might work for you. Also check out http://www.sfhousingservices.com/#!student-housing/cvpm
edit
I looked up current reviews of 1080 Folsom (the housing from sfhousingservices.com Iโ€™m familiar with) and the new ones are pretty mediocre. I suggest you look up reviews of particular houses on Yelp first. :frowning:

Considering a trip to Salt Lake City area, with a side trip to Moab, UT. Thinking of renting a Class B RV (Sprinter van size) to test out Van Life.

Looking for any suggestions/input on:

  1. Organizations that might be interested in a presentation on โ€œYour website is more than a Brochureโ€. (Informative, not a sales pitch)
  2. Outdoor activities within 4h (see below)
  3. Best places to meet people interested in Tech and the outdoor activities.

Looking to do some easy to moderate:

  1. Mountain biking
  2. Cross country Skiing
  3. Rock Climbing

Wondering what months I could do each. Iโ€™d love to do a late September trip if itโ€™s not too late.

Norway: northern lights (Aurora)

Hi Norway folksโ€”Iโ€™m planning a February trip to Tromsรธ hoping to see the northern lights, but honestly I canโ€™t find anything about how likely I am to see them. Are they out every night and itโ€™s just a matter of cloud cover, or are they like once a week?

Any info would help me decide whether to pull the trigger.

Like San Cristobal De Casas, but warmer?


by @annamcphee3 | 3yr 2 years ago | 1 comment

Can anybody recommend a good nomad location in Mexico, that is like San Cristobal De Casas, but has a warmer climate throughout September to January?

Thinking:

  • Inland, not looking for coastal
  • Not a tourist mecca (eg not San Miguel de Allende)
  • Nice weather - doesnโ€™t have to be scorching hot, but the average forecasts for SCDC are just a little too cold/wet/grey for my liking.
  • But access to longer term rentals at a good price (thinking 3-6 month lease)
  • Reliable, good WiFi (doesnโ€™t need to be rocket-fast, but fast & reliable enough to host things like Skype lessons or Google hangouts)

My dream is somewhere else in Chiapas, however I am also considering Oaxaca and Guanajuato. Any other suggestions??

Thanks so much!

Have you been to Santiago de Chile? How was it?


in Santiago, Chile by @andreadardon | 4yr 4 years ago | 6 comments

With my boyfriend weโ€™re on a year long trip and weโ€™re currently in Europe. But weโ€™re thinking about going down to Chile to change environments (and because Schengen).
Weโ€™re both fluent in Spanish, and I am Central American, but Iโ€™d like to know what Chileโ€™s like for digital nomads: internet speeds, coworking spaces, commuting, safety, etc.

Also, how easy/cheap is it to fly to other South American cities?

Any recommendations, stories or thoughts are welcomed :slightly_smiling:

Formentera, Spain vs. Santorini, Greece?


in Santorini, Greece by @que | 4yr 4 years ago | 5 comments

Hi,
Iโ€™m ready to start traveling again (looking at May through August, about). I have a little more money to spend and would like an island experience in Southern Europe. Iโ€™m a little older and looking for a little more comfort these days. I would plan to rent a 1 bedroom apartment if possible. Places that come to mind are Formentera or Santorini. Iโ€™d like to stay for 2 or 3 months. Does anyone have any experiences to share with these two locales. One concern I have about Greece is safety given the economic crisis. Any insight into there would be appreciated.

Thanks

Freight-forwarding company in the US that also does storage space rental?


by @fuzzybabybunny | 5yr 4 years ago | 2 comments

I currently use Shipito and Iโ€™m pretty happy with their service. I have all my mail sent to my Shipito locker in Oregon and when I want it theyโ€™ll consolidate everything into one box and ship it out to me where ever I may be for a good price. Iโ€™ve even used it to get stuff I order from Amazon whilst abroad.

The problem is that they donโ€™t offer item storage. There are some things that I want to store in my locker indefinitely / just in case I need them sent out to me.

Example:

Winter equipment / clothes. I want to store this stuff at the freight-fowarding company and have them sent out to me when I need it. When I donโ€™t need it anymore, Iโ€™ll send it back for storage to the freight-forwarding company. Rinse and repeat as needed.

Any recommendations for companies available in the US, preferably with lots of warehouses, especially ones in Oregon or Nevada?

Are there towns similar to Boulder or Portland in Europe?


in Portland, United States by @j0hnlucas | 5yr 4 years ago | 17 comments

Small towns with:

  1. beautiful nature (mountains or sea)
  2. progressive (clean energy, digital, social justice, etc)
  3. laid back attitude
  4. affordable
  5. good startup community
    It seems to me that if 2 and 5 then itโ€™s hard to have 1 and 3. e.g. Berlin for startups is too big, not great nature, a bit too cold. Am I asking too much? :smile:

Price for basic accommodation in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica?


in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica by @niklasmodess | 5yr 4 years ago | 0 comments

Hi!
Me and my girlfriend are planning on staying 1-3 months in Santa Teresa, starting in May. Does anybody know how much we can expect to pay in rent, and if there are any good places online to look for apartments? Or is it better to look for a place once weโ€™re there? So far weโ€™ve mostly found more upscale options online but we just need a place that is safe, clean and that has a kitchen. A small studio would be fine.
Any help with this would be appreciated!

Traveling to Ghuangzhou in April for the Canton Fair: Any notable destinations during the downtime?


in Canton, United States by @rynesweeney | 5yr 4 years ago | 2 comments

I am traveling to the Canton fair where I will be for 16 days from April 18th to May 4th. There will be a couple 3 day gaps between working for mini excursions. I am contemplating going to Macau or HK during these times.

I am up for suggestions on similar areas i.e. close in proximity, simple travel arrangements, maybe a body of water as well.

Work may supercede these travel arrangements though if the journey isnโ€™t too demanding it may be worth while.

Thanks!

The Nomad Pad: Austin Pad is looking for awesome nomads starting April!


in Austin, United States by @nomadicpad | 5yr 5 years ago | 4 comments

Sign up for Nomad House: Project Austin

Hey Nomads!

So Nomad House: Project Austin is coming together. We found a better house with a better location and living arrangement, and we are just looking for one more digital nomad to join our little experiment from Feb. 1st- Mar. 1st.

Living options:
$900: Private Room

$700: Shared room

The house is at S. Park Dr. and Powell Court in Austin Texas.

To give you an idea of the awesome people youโ€™d be living with, the residence so far are:

@tikhon - Hailing from San Fran (for now!), seasoned developer, specializing in dev/ops, sysadmin and the non-tech side of the startup world such as Fundraising/recruiting/sales. You may be be familiar with the 2 successful start-ups that he co-founded - Scribd + Parse. Avid rock climber, photographer and looking to make another awesome project this time free from VCโ€™s overlord control! Rockin!

@maxholzheu - Hailing from Guatemala, alum of Build Campus in SF. Committed to paving a courageous path to freedom using technology. His life philosophies are *stop planning, start moving *never stop learning. Currently kicking ass as a web developer for Junto Studio, with remote work privileges.

Grayson - Has yet to fork over the $15 to join the #nomad group. But luckily heโ€™s a good friend of mine. We met working at a company is Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia called Mindvalley (you may have heard of it). When heโ€™s not helping artist promote themselves with his startup Mumora, heโ€™s either eating street cooked grub in a hole in the wall in South East Asia, blogging about marketing or just being a tall shaggy good dude!

Me - Iโ€™m Brandon, you can check out some of the crazy stuff Iโ€™ve done in the past: like the time I biked from German to India, or the time I became a Thai commerical star! Life is random, I know! Currently working for a startup called Bucketfeet, that makes cool sneakers using designs submitted by artists from all over the world! I convinced them to let me move to Austin and work remote, so let the adventures begin. I also like salsa dancing, personal development books, maps and anything with 2 wheels!

You - Canโ€™t wait to see who are 5th nomad will be!

If you want to be apart of something great, sign up below and letโ€™s build a world free of year leases, boring roommates and coffeeshop refugees.

Are there any decent global laptop rental & delivery services?


by @normaldude | 5yr 5 years ago | 0 comments

Like if youโ€™re traveling around the world, your Windows laptop gets stolen at 2am, and you just need a quick rental laptop, delivered to your hotel room ASAP, for using during the next 1-2 weeks. As a long-term solution, youโ€™ll mail order a custom Windows laptop, but that may take a while to assemble & deliver. So for now, you just need a quick short-term temporary laptop replacement.

I know that there are overnight laptop rental services, but they seem focused on the US marketโ€ฆ
