About this listing

Clean and comfortable, casual place in a quiet and safe neighborhood. Super fast WiFi. Really comfy queen bed. Just minutes to the train and bus. I have a pair of free bicycles --mountain bike and hybrid --for my guests. Restaurants coffee shops and sports bars are all within walking distance. Sorry no frying food, not even eggs. This is a place of peace and acceptance and has an anti-Trump vibe. I require a facial photo in your profile for booking.

The space

Three bedroom place 1 kilometer to US 101 1/2 k to train/bus. Located between San Francisco and San Jose along the bus/train line ($5 fare to San Jose or San Francisco). Green sustainable place: bicycles, composting, clothes line. Cheerful, fun, worldly people to the front of the line. Proetty casual here, really clean but your sheets might not match your pillow cases. The dinnerware definitely does not match.

2 people per room maximum.l

The "" is my master bed/bath, large and bright 17x14 feet with attached private bathroom

LGBT friendly. Disability and wheelchair accessible. Great secure doors and windows in a safe and clean neighborhood.

Tim was very responsive and everything was exactly as described. Tim himself was on vacation so we didnt get to meet. I was in the Bay Area for work and wanted a place with kitchen, washing maschine and was tired of living in a hotel. Tim's house lived up to all expectations with also a nice outdoor veranda. There were a couple of other people staying in the other rooms who were all very nice. Tim also let me use one of his bicycles which is great for shorter diatances on the Peninsula. Fully recommend Tim's home!

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.
