The Space

My clean comfy 3 bedroom 2 bath home is available in its entirety at times. But sometimes I just have a room or two available.

This is a quiet family-friendly location just 4 blocks off of Highway 101, four blocks to Caltrain and major SanTrans bus line and also approximately a mile from the Oracle campus.

Pretty casual place here, definitely green with composting, recycling, clothes lines and a bicycle to use at no cost.

Your well behaved pet will ad $10/day to the cost, but I must pre-approve.

Baby crib provided. There's an auto inflating twin size air bed in the last kitchen cabinet on the left.

It's half way between San Francisco and San Jose in San Carlos, one of the truly prized Silicon Valley locations. It is cozy and safe with off street parking and street parking available

It's a modern home with pretty much everything including a soothing Jacuzzi bathtub, a wood burning stove, big screen HD TV with cable and on-demand movies, a great big kitchen, formal dining room, swift wireless internet, inviting patio with a charcoal BBQ and a washer and dryer.

It's about a 6 minute walk to the train/bus station in a sunny, friendly and safe neighborhood. Clean pet is ok upon discussion and my approval

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

Modern forced air heating with smoke and CO detectors

Welcoming to all with guests from many nations: East India, Taiwan, China, Thailand, Canada, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Great Britten, Estonia, Russia, Israel, Uzbekistan, Singapore, Sweden, Denmark, many from Hong Kong, Germany, the USA of course and other places.

Guest Access

Entire house 3 bedrooms and two baths with large yards front and rear, including brick patio with large Webber barbecue.

Interaction with Guests

As much or as little as comfortable

Getting around

Other Things to Note

Washer and dryer in garage and generally all of the good amenities one would expect in a modern home.

  • thanks Tim,
    the house was perfect for our weekend stay. the house was very nice and enjoyed our stay.

    February 2014
  • We were totally delighted with our stay at Tim's place. He was a gracious and accommodating host. The house was clean and comfortable and the location was perfect for us. We were close enough to downtown San Carlos to walk to Starbucks or Peet's for our morning coffee. There are a wide variety of restaurants downtown and we tried several for dinner. We most enjoyed Spasso on Laurel Street and highly recommend it. We'll definitely contact Tim when we are back in the area.

  • Tim is a great host and extremely reponsive to my emails. He completely entrusted us with his house during our 3-week stay. We only met for about 10 minutes during our whole stay but exchanged emails frequently. The house is fully equipped and offers everything you would need. Tim is a generous host and overstocks almost every kind of consumables. His place is very conveniently located and it worked out perfectly for us who did frequent trips to San Francisco downtown and met friends in Palo Alto/San Jose. We (2 adults + 4 kids) had a fantastic time there and we will definitely recommend his place!

  • This house was great!! Everything was well-equipped!!
    Tim kindly prepared the BBQ place for me, which my family enjoyed a lot.

    Very quiet and peaceful neighborhood, and close to the Highway 101.

    If I have another chance, I will definitely stay here again.

  • We were a group of four persons on a business trip and enjoyed our stay in Sunny n Welcoming home very much. Thank you Tim for organizing an additional airbed.

    April 2013
  • Tim was a fantastic host! He was very flexible with check in and check out time, house was exactly as pictured and location is extremely convenient. Restaurants and coffees on Laurel street are only an 8 minutes walk as well as Caltrain station. If you need to rent a car Hertz in Redwood city will come to pick you up. If you have an energetic toddler a very nice playground is only a couple of blocks away. Thank you Tim we enjoyed our stay very much!

  • I rented this lovely and charming home for 3 employees who were visiting San Carlos for training week. Tim was very helpful and communicative in the the booking process, all expectations were exceeded. The home was clean, comfortable, and conveniently located. Would definitely rent from Tim again in the future.

  • Tim gave us a thorough tour upon our arrival and provided us with all the info we asked for. He is very friendly and helpful. Location is great too, close by not too close to the high way 101 and express way. Lots of restaurants nearby within minutes of driving.

    July 2012
  • Tim is a great host. He's very accommodating and easy going. The house is nice with a comfy patio set, a large and functional kitchen and clean bedrooms. I would absolutely recommend this place to anybody.

Fun-loving guy, into travel, conversation, animals, cycling, good food and wine. I've hosted guests from all over the world on Airbnb, six continents and 28 nations: techies hoping to make their millions in Silicon Valley and tourists too. I cook a little, especially on the grill and I love fish and pasta. I get regular deliveries of organic veggies and fruits. Enjoy! Hobbies include cycling, running, hiking, bird watching, travel, gardening 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. Cheers Tim
