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?

I really surprised their hospitality and was very delightful. Not only their welcome, this room looked new and really clean. In the room, there were microwave, enough folks and knives, disposable towels, and dishes, so we could have simple food in this private place. They also provided their kitchen to make meal. Breakfast including cereal, milk, yogurt, fruits, and tea was very delicious. I strongly recommend this place to travelers visiting San Francisco or San Jose.
The reservation was canceled 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Our room was under construction and we had a big set back when the final inspection revealed some issues. The room is now great and we are back hosting guests. This was the first time I canceled a guest and did my best to tell Frances as soon as I realized the issue.
Hope all went well for the colleague she as booking for.
Johanna and Bob were the BEST Airbnb-Hosts we've ever had. They're so lovely and helpful, thank you for all your efforts. The apartment was very comfortable and clean. Every morning we got a good and healthy breakfast, especially the selfmade cerials were great! We wish we could stayed longer at their home. We would definitely stay again in your cool apartment, Johanna and Bob! Take care and thank you for the accommodation! We had a wonderful time in San Carlos and San Francisco.

When I arrived I was given a great tour! The home was clean, guests very friendly, and location perfect! I loved how generous the hosts were leaving fruit, tea, cereal and other treats out for me to grab and make at my convenience.
Johanna and Bob were very nice hosts. Comfortable room and great location.
Bob und Johanna haben ein sehr schönes, sauberes Heim. Sie sind beide sehr nett und geben einen Tipps, was man sich in der Gegend ansehen kann. Wir hatten eine geräumige 2-Zimmer Wohneinheit, die aufgrund des flauschigen Teppichbodens auch von unserem 7-Monate alten Sohn sehr gemocht wurde. Die Gastgeber stellen in der Küche Kaffee, Tee, diverse Müslis, Milch, Eier, etc. zur Verfügung. Das Bad ist auch komfortabel. Auf jeden Fall ist die Lage in der Mitte der SF Halbinsel ideal, um Ausflüge nach SF oder ins Silicon Valley zu machen. Auf dem Grundstück kann man parken. Öffentliches Verkehrsnetz ist dort aber auch optimal. Wir können die Wohnung wärmstens empfehlen.
Thanks for the great review, and as you know we limit the amount of guests by blocking off room rentals so bathroom usage does not create a problem. Guests can reserve the bathroom for specific times by writing on the white board, and all guests are flexible and accommodating. Hope to see you again.
Johanna and Bob are wonderful hosts, and amazing, friendly people. The room was clean and very comfortable and they go out of their way to be helpful and accommodating to all guests. I look forward to my next stay.

About the Host, Johanna And Bob
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.
