  • Thanks again. This is our 3rd stay with Johanna and Zbon and it is always pleasant.

  • Thanks to Johanna and Bob my visit to CA was much more pleasant. Amazing location and beautiful house!

  • This place is a gem. The location is great and if you don't have a car it's as good as it gets as you can walk to everything. There is a nice community here as hosts make sure good folks come and go. The Gelbs were innkeepers in another live and really thrive on the management of their place. They are anxious to serve without being at all intrusive. I'd come back here in a heartbeat and look forward to it.

  • Great great place to stay. Johanna and Bob are very nice hosts, the room is very nice and clean and the location is great (really close to the train station). Loved the neighbourhood also, very safe and quiet. Will recommend Bob and Johanna's place to anyone coming from Portugal :)

  • excellent hosts, clean comfortable bedrooms;

    October 2013
  • Lovely hosts. Very welcoming and warm. The room was cosy and the bed comfortable. Would definitely recommend staying here. My only negative was that in the evening the Wi-Fi was quite slow and streaming Netflix wasn't great, but not a deal breaker. Thank you, both.

    October 2013
  • Both Johanna & Bob are very caring hosts, the home is clean and tidy, and the mid-peninsular location is perfect for us during our week long visit.

  • On behalf of my mom who spent a week there, she was very happy with the room, the breakfast offered (delicious organic food, sunny back porch to enjoy it outside). She said the down-sides were to have to share a toilet, meaning having to wait to go to the bathroom when someone else is in it. She thought the room was very clean and pleasant, maybe a little loud on the street side but not a big deal.
    A very happy experience for her !!!!

About
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.
