The Space

Hostel Style .....
`Twin beds Bunk Bed style
Please try to check in before 10 P.M.
My apartment is a 15 minute walk to Downtown San Carlos and the many shops and restaurants there. Additionally, bus (2 minute walk) and train (15 minute walk) service to the entire Peninsula from San Francisco to San Jose are conveniently close. The many tech companies in the area are a 10 to 25 minute drive while San Francisco and San Jose (Silicone Valley) are a 25 minute drive.
Express bus service from the airport to El Camino Real & San Carlos Ave (5 blocks away) is available on SamTrans Route KX. Caltrain Commuter Rail Train to SF and SJ takes 35-45 mins. Parking is available right out front of the apartment. If you desire a covered parking space we can arrange something at an additional cost.
Females in separate room. If you'd like to stay in the girl's room, please check with me on availability before booking. If you don't mind co-ed living, then just make your booking.

  • The place is really clean and so is neighborhood. Super market is just 1min walk distance. I had a good time and had no problem except that the wash machine was broken when I was there.

    It take more than one hour to get to Bay area(20 min walk to nearest train station and 50+ train) and it costs $10 for return. Maybe some people don't like this.

    Other than that, I was so satisfied with Erik's place.

  • Erik was accommodating to my unique scheduling needs and I was pleased to have the company of others in this communal-style townhouse. As a commuter who isn't bothered with the idea of a shared space, I found my stay to be comfortable, and plan to return for future work trips. I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunities I had to speak with Erik, and the other guests, and found everyone to be very giving and considerate. Junyo the cat and I began a love affair that will blossom, as I am sure the goat cheese I snuck him (sorry, Erik) left a lasting impression. One recommendation--if you are bothered by noise to bring earplugs, as the beds can be a bit squeaky. Thanks!

  • Eric was very accommodating and overall I had a great stay. There was a full kitchen and bathroom to share with other guests. This is a great place to layover for a few nights when you're on a budget.

About
I'll try nearly anything once; I am a 43 y/o adventurous spirit. I've gone bungee jumping, bridge walking, and rock climbing. I enjoy swimming, tennis, basketball and jui jitsu. I bring warmth to those around me and extend myself when others need a hand. I believe attracting positive things to my life is a result of sharing my positive energy with others. I've been dedicated to my career in public health - psychology. My early affinity for helping others, as my mom says, developed when I was very young. The large family that I hail from weren't much help in deterring me away from a career in helping others either. Since eligible to work at the age of 16, I've held some type of job in public health that I fostered into a career with the help of a BA, then MA in Psychology. My more recent venture is a return to school for a Ph.D. Between work, school, volunteering and trying to maintain some semblance of a social life, I have a rich schedule that keeps me on my toes. I've done a bit of traveling in my life. At an early age, family vacations took me to Canada and Mexico and in more recent years personal and business brought me to Paris, Holland, Bulgaria, London, Tijuana, and Italy. Domestically, I've been to all of the West Coast States, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, NY, Florida to spout off a few. :-) I look forward to meeting many folks through this service, perhaps one of those people will be you. Cheers & safe travels, ~Erik
