The Space

Come enjoy our comfortable home in San Carlos, CA., with 4 bedrooms for rent. This bedroom has a queen size bed, a desk, a full dresser and chair that provide a great working area. The room decor is an African theme. Shared areas include the living room, dining room, and gourmet kitchen. Guests can share the kitchen to prepare their own meals.

There is a full bathroom with shower/tub and double sinks, that only needs to be shared if other guests are present. While there is one bathroom for the guests to share, you have the option to reserve bathroom time to be sure it is available for your personal use. This system works well, and guests cooperate and respect each others' requests. The bathroom has minty shower gel, shampoo and conditioner for you to enjoy.

We keep our house very clean. We have WiFi, TV and ample parking.

Enjoy our view of the San Francisco Bay, and enjoy the tranquility of our home and neighborhood. San Carlos is a cute, safe and peaceful little town in the mid-Peninsula, located in Silicon Valley. The town is full of restaurants, coffee houses, and boutiques, and we are 3 blocks from the local train and bus public transportation services.

We are also close to Hwy 101, 5 minutes from Oracle and Redwood Shores, 30 minutes from San Francisco, 20 minutes from SFO airport, 30 minutes from SJC airport and 20 minutes from Standford University.
We can possibly pick you up from the SFO airport (only) for a fee of $30.00.

We love to eat good, healthy food and breakfasts will be simple ones with some organic items as well as coffee and tea. Let us know what your favorite breakfast foods are! We enjoy accommodating our guests!

Johanna speaks Spanish and Bob speaks basic Spanish and German. We enjoy meeting new people and are great hosts and respect people's privacy. We have lived abroad and traveled extensively, as noted by our eclectic collection of art and crafts throughout the house. We are teachers and are very busy, yet find time for tennis and running. So come join us! We have been hosting guests through this site for over three years and have enjoyed our guests and getting to know them. We are both very helpful and friendly, as our over 200 positive reviews can attest. A washer and dryer are available, at no extra charge.

When making a reservation, please give us your full name and something about you and the other people coming with you, and what you are expecting in the way of accommodations and anything else. The room is priced at 2 people per bedroom, and for an additional person there is a small fee. We would prefer to have you check in after 5:30 pm on school days, but are more flexible on the weekends.

Our location and hospitality make our home a great selection.

Johanna And Bob

Johanna And Bob

San Carlos, California, United States · Member since November 2011

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, and cooking gourmet meals. 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 often stayed in bed and breakfast accommodations, we know it's important to have privacy and friendly hosts, and we provide this as well as clean, comfortable accommodations. We have hosted over 400 guests and enjoy meeting new people and opening our home to others.
