Johanna speaks Spanish and Bob speaks basic Spanish and German. We enjoy meeting new people and are great hosts. We lived abroad and traveled extensively.
We eat very healthy and exercise often, and find time to play tennis and run. Care to join us? We have been hosting guests through this site for over three years, and have enjoyed it tremendously. We are friendly and helpful, and our reviews speak for themselves.
We are teachers and are very busy, so other meals are on your own, unless prior arrangements are made. Washer and dryer available for your use, at no extra charge. There is a small cleaning fee to cover sheets and towels. We change your linens after each week of your stay.
When you make a reservation please give us your full name, and something about you and the other people coming with you, what you are expecting in the way of accommodations and anything else. If you want more than one room, you must book each room separately, since we are charging by the room.

House was beautiful and easy to locate with the address, Bob gave me a detailed tour around the house that everything is ready and perfect. I stayed in upper room and it was no less than a supreme hotel room. Wonderful bathroom/shower, private freezer, and even water purifier and a desk for a personal work space. Starbucks and other small cozy cafes are about 5min away and McDonalds and Taco bell is just out the door. Love to come back anytime :) (It's about in between San Jose and San Francisco. I suggest driving for commute)
Bob and Johanna's home was easy to find and they were there to greet us when we arrived. They took the time to show us the ropes, then sat and chatted for a bit. The room and home were just as advertised - clean, bright, cheerful and comfortable. The room and bathroom were spotless, and fully stocked. The breakfast items were fresh and healthy. Since Bob and Johanna live in the back area of the house, the main part of the house is open to guests, and we felt very comfortable there. The keyless entry made coming and going very convenient. The neighborhood was nice and within walking distance of a charming downtown area. Just a note for others who are sensitive to heat - although the room ventilates well, and there is a fan, there is no a/c in the room where we stayed. We enjoyed the interaction with the other guests - during our 6 day stay, we interacted with four other guests and they were all friendly and interesting people.
We enjoyed Haninder and hope he comes back again. The room is listed as NO air condition, and this summer we are experiencing some very warm days. In the afternoon there is always a great breeze that cools down the house, and we made it as cool as possible by shutting the curtains during the day and opening up the windows later in the day. Our world climate is definitely shifting!
My husband and I stayed eight nights with Johanna and Bob.
This was our first experience with Airbnb, and I'm happy to say that everything was as described. Our room was comfortable, clean and quiet, and the sharing of the splendid bathroom with other guests was no problem. We were welcomed by Johanna who instructed us, among other things, in using the coffee machine which we certainly enjoyed.
Should we ever return to the beautiful Bay Area we would not hesitate to stay again in this nice home.
This was our first Airbnb booking. We have used VRBO but first time shared housing. Wish it had been under different circumstances but it was my dad's celebration of life. They were very helpful and respectful of our space. The room was lovely, clean and they gave us coffee and breakfast pastries. The location was excellent only a few miles from my family home. The house was clean, spacious and as private as we wanted. Warm, receptive hosts and it felt more like friends staying at the house vs. Unknown house guests. The rates were very reasonable - much less, of course, than even a 3 star hotel which are always scary to go. No matter what they say. We would highly recommend Bob and Johanna's home.
We had a great experience staying with Bob and Johanna, and even extended our stay beyond our original booking. The room was very clean and tidy and was exactly as described. The home is in a very quiet area, and was walking distance from the Caltrain which was extremely convenient for me. Highly recommended!
Bob and Johanna were amazing hosts and we felt very welcome in their home. The place the was very clean and well taken care of. The neighborhood has great food options and the Caltrain stop was a quick walk away. Their hospitality was second to none, highly recommended!
The room was all I needed with a very functional desk. Plenty of outlets. The communication was great through either text, in person or on a message board. Nice parking options.
