I offer a clean, casual and sunny place in a quiet safe neighborhood…speedy WiFi. Walking time to train or bus 7 mins. The coffee shops restaurants bars close too. The queen bed is very comfortable with desk and I serve coffee and tea. Sorry but no frying food at all, not even eggs. Profile facial photo required. I have a mountain bike and a hybrid bike for my guests free of charge. If you support Trump please keep looking for a more appropriate host.

The space

I have one, sometimes two and once in a while all three bedrooms in my earth friendly San Carlos home available for two nights or longer. It's located mid point between San Francisco and San Jose just off Highway 101 and a 7 minute walk to the commuter train or bus.

I mostly host techies but some tourists too, people from Israel, Canada, Australia, Japan, Kenya, Hong Kong, India, Estonia, China, Thailand, Denmark, Russia, Germany, Sweden, Uzbekistan, Great Britian, Singapore, Belgium, a little place called The US and probably a few I've forgotten!

I share my nice modern home with large kitchen and all the amenities. If you do not see 30 birds, squirrels and other forms of wildlife while making for your coffee, you are not looking.

Warning: the patio can lure you into hours of eating and dining pleasure.

I have key-less entry for better security-- code upon arrival. Street parking plentiful

Tim's place is really nice, comfortable, and convenient. He is a gracious host who loves all kinds of people and is a great conversationalist. I highly recommend staying there. This was my second time to stay there while in San Carlos.

Tim was an amazing host. Throughout our two weeks we felt like we were home. We'd run into each other occasionally and it would inevitably end up in great conversation, he's a great guy with good knowledge of the area (ask him about the food in downtown San Carlos!), really friendly and accommodating, and flexible to our situation as well (we were relocating). The place itself is beautiful, clean (modern homey clean, not hospital clean), very quiet, great for a good night's sleep, refreshing with gardens at the back and good natural light throughout. All the little things indicate the care Tim puts into hosting - soap and shampoo always full, dining table always tidy, coffee pot ready, etc. Location is perfect as well to get anywhere in the Bay Area, 3 minutes and you're on the 101, and a 7 min walk to Caltrain if you don't drive. All in all a wonderful experience.

Tim User ProfileTim is a superhost.

Fun-loving guy, into travel, cycling, food and wine.

I've hosted guests from all over the world on Airbnb, six continents and 40+ nations: techies hoping to make their millions in Silicon Valley and some fun tourists too.

I cook a little, especially on the grill and I love fish and pasta.

Hobbies include cycling, hiking, bird watching, travel, and ocean diving.

You should have a profile and picture to stay here. Tell me something about YOU...are you traveling for fun or business? Do you plan to be in my house working all day on the computer or getting up in the morning and exploring the Bay Area or heading for the office?

Afterall, this is my house and I need to know a little something about you.
