Ubari is a private, furnished room located in the Elysium house. Part Esalen, part Burning Man, part Paris salon, Elysium is an oasis for Silicon Valley newcomers. We're close to Stanford, Sandhill Road, and many tech companies. Stay with us!
Note: This room has a _shared_ bathroom that see heavier use than most bathrooms in the house (it's on the first floor, and is the most accessible). If sharing a bathroom is a big turnoff for you, we recommend you choose one of our other rooms.
Think TED, but in a hot tub, and surrounded by fire spinners. We plan to host frequent events and salons, ranging from aerial silk performances, to cryptocurrency meetups, to improv comedy. Our mission is to gather the best people from all walks of life and smash them together, super collider style, and see what happens. Giant fighting robot builders, secret billionaire anti-heroes, and Mexico City buskers are especially encouraged to apply.
As a guest, you'll have full access to the common spaces on the property. Outdoor amenities include a private courtyard with a gazebo-covered outdoor dining table , BBQ, and hot tub. And a giant yard. So much space for activities!
Interaction with guests
Our community manager will be available help you check in, and will also be available for non-emergencies by phone and email between normal business hours (9:00 - 5:00 pm). For emergencies, please feel free to call 24/7.
Other things to note
Suggestions for improving the house are welcome!
All communications must be via Airbnb's system, unless otherwise agreed. (No phone calls or texts.)
Checkout time is 4:00 pm. So that means we need a little time to prepare a room before it's available again at 7:00 pm. If you need to check in earlier, most of the time we can let you drop off your bags and pick up your keys before the stated checkin time. However, it's not guaranteed! Please make sure you get written approval first (via Airbnb's messaging system).
No dogs or cats please. Other pets may be allowed on a case by case basis. Owls, hedgehogs, and sugar gliders are encouraged to apply.
Our household has a hot tub and you may see naked adults wandering around.
Our house is not child-proofed. Art projects, electronic projects, and other hazards to small ones may be present.
Consensual junk touching: a-okay. Encouraged, even. Nonconsensual junk touching: not okay, and grounds for immediate removal from the house. If unsure, ask.
If you think someone's behaving badly, treat them the way you would treat someone you love who has gone senile. Try to understand the positive motivation behind the damn fool thing they've done, and be gentle and kind.
Smoking and vaping are allowed outside, but not in the house.
If your giant fighting robot leaks oil on the kitchen tile, please wipe it up.
Please take your shoes off indoors.
Please take your clothes off before getting in the hot tub.
Please put your clothes on before leaving the house.
No loud noise after 10 pm on weeknights, or after midnight on the weekend.

Raised a “Mormon hippie” in rural Idaho, I have a voracious appetite for learning. Few things give me so great a pleasure as a good book. My passions include life extension, agorism, social system design, entrepreneurship, and self-improvement. I especially enjoy a conversation with friends over a nice steak (medium rare) and a glass of wine. I look forward to meeting you!
