The space

We welcome you to come share our home with a lovely view of the San Francisco Bay. Our home is quiet, comfortable and impeccably clean. We just finished a major remodel and the space is clean, bright and private. This room is upstairs and has its own only private entrance accessible by an outside stairway. It has a bedroom with a queen size bed, private full bathroom with shower, and a sitting room with a desk and chair. There is a microwave and mini-frig for your grocery items. You can also share the common areas downstairs which include a well-stocked kitchen open for use, a comfortable living/ dining room, and a small patio and hot tub.

We are centrally located to just about everything the Bay Area has to offer. We are close to public transportation (3 blocks) and major freeways ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)), as well as San Francisco (30 minutes), and San Jose (30 minutes). We are in Silicon Valley, and are 5 minutes from Oracle and Redwood Shores, 20 minutes from Stanford University, 20 minutes from SFO and 30 minutes from SJC airports. (We can at times arrange a pick from the airport- for a fee of $30.00). With a charming main street within walking distance San Carlos is known as the city of "Good Living". It’s full of restaurants, coffee houses, and boutiques and known to be a very safe place.

We are a multi-lingual household, Johanna speaks Spanish and Bob speaks basic Spanish and German. We eat healthy and exercise often and lead very busy lives, yet still find time to play tennis, run, and enjoy other outdoor activities. Care to join us? We have been hosting through this site for more than three years and have enjoyed our time getting to know our guests and helping them out. We have over 200 positive reviews!

We provide a self-serve, simple breakfast with some organic items, as well as coffee and tea.. A washer and dryer are available if needed. A small cleaning fee is asked to help us with sheets and towels. We change your linens after each week of occupancy.

When you make a reservation, please tell us your full name and something about yourself and whoever will be joining you. Let us know what you are expecting in the way of accommodation, and how we help to make your stay more comfortable. We can pick you up from the SFO airport for a $30.00 fee.
We look forward to being your hosts.

New photos of the New Sweet Studio are coming soon!

Johanna And Bob

Johanna And Bob

San Carlos, California, United States · Joined in 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 500 guests and enjoy meeting new people and opening our home to others.
