Wife speaks Spanish and husband speaks basic Spanish and German. We enjoy meeting new people and are great hosts. Have 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 a year and a half 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.

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. You can request bedroom one or two, on this reservation form. If you stay for a week, the 7th night is free!
(Maximum 2 people per bedroom, additional people must rent another bedroom.)
We look forward to being your hosts!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Johanna and Bob were very gracious and extremely nice people! They were accommodating and kind. I really felt at home in their place and I look forward to staying with them again on my next business trip.

    March 2014
  • I was very comfortable staying with Johanna and Bob. They were great hosts and very welcoming. Their home is lovely and the lodging was perfect. The location was minutes from my destination and easy access to freeways and public transportation.

    March 2014
  • We are returning guests and specifically asked to be able to come back to Johanna and Bob's home.

    The bed is comfortable and there was space for me to set up my big monitor during my stay. I got lots of work done.

    The place is close enough to CalTrain that it was easy to catch a train and ride into the city each day.

    We appreciate Johanna and Bob's hospitality and if we find ourselves needing to stay at a place again, would happily call them.

    They have some food available for breakfast and on occasion they cooked/provided some home made breads. I especially loved the pumpkin bread/cake they made. Mmmm, a little butter and it made my day.

    We highly recommend their place if you need somewhere to stay near San Carlos.

  • Johanna was a great and a very kind host. I think her place was one of the most cozy place I ever stayed in at Airbnb. Extremely clean and neat house with a delicious breakfast every morning. You know these folks have traveled around the world. World class bed-n-breakfast.

    December 2013
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Johanna and Bob and can only recommend them as hosts. We received valuable tips during our first days in California and enjoyed interacting with them. They are both very friendly, welcoming, and helpful people. The house was very comfortable and nicely decorated. We enjoyed the European-style breakfasts and good coffees. San Carlos is a beautiful place to live. The house is located in a nice residential area, which, however, is very close to the downtown that has plenty of restaurants and cafes.

    December 2013
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Johanna and Bob. The room was very comfortable and breakfast was very enjoyable and healthy. Johanna and Bob are a lovely couple with whom we enjoyed chatting. The location was perfect for us with a car as the 101 was very close and meant we could very quickly get to the city, SFO airport and valley locations. Having a full house meant you had to be mindful of time in the bathroom but overall the system worked pretty well. We would thoroughly recommend a stay.

    November 2013
  • My husband and I had a pleasant stay with Johanna and Bob. Their home was very inviting, warm, comfortable, very clean, and convenient for us since we need to travel between Sunnyvale and San Francisco during our visit in the area. We definitely will stay with them again and highly recommend them as hosts. Thank you again
    Johanna and Bob!

  • Awesome place, great location if you are looking for the mid peninsula area, very convenient, close to downtown and trains.

    Bob and Johanna were easy to communicate with. Really nice couple.

    Our company had an engineer from Russia doing a long term visit to our US office and because I was local I offered to help them set up the airbnb stay at Bob and Johanna's. Bob and Johanna were very accommodating and and understanding of the situation.

    Our engineer had brought his wife and daughter and stayed for almost the entire month of September. Towels/fresh sheets were provided, comfy beds and plenty of privacy. Washing machine/dryer was available for free which was nice for a long term stay. Our engineer's family used the kitchen extensively and also took several dips in the hot tub.

    Overall it was a very pleasant experience and I and our engineer's family would recommend anyone who is looking to stay in this area short or long term.

    September 2013
  • It was a very nice place to stay. The area was quiet and close to downtown San Carlos. I enjoyed my stay there and would stay there again.

    September 2013
  • Johanna and Bob are great host! The location is great as it is walkable distance to the Caltrain station and San Carlos airport. Will definitely stay again.

Johanna in Half Moon Bay, CA, Bob in Sunnyvale, CA
We are two teachers who have grown children that are now out on their own, out of the house. We have a comfortable and simple home to invite others to enjoy. We are very active playing tennis, running and exercising, cooking gourmet meals and traveling. We have traveled extensively all over the world and have lived abroad as well. Johanna loves to travel in Spanish speaking countries and Bob enjoyed teaching English in China. Johanna speaks fluent Spanish and Bob enjoys speaking basic Spanish and German. Bob is now studying anthropology and Johanna hopes to become a professional chef after teaching. Bob is an avid reader, especially history, and Johanna loves Latin music . Since we have stayed often in Bed and Breakfasts, we know its important to have privacy as well as simple comforts and nice accommodations. We are new to this idea of opening our home to others but AirBnB comes recommended.
